2. Absolutely MUST be read. Repeatedly.

I understood and appreciated the first article I read about the article (as well as laughed/gagged at the original) but I can't seem to get enough of it. Righteous Rant indeed. Congratulations and thank you.

Although I've read comments elsewhere to the effect that the poor are too exhausted and dispirited to EVER rise up, sometimes I suspect that's a certain group whistling past the graveyard. History suggests otherwise. There are many more of us than there are of them, and eventually we'll reach the tipping point, superior weapons be damned. An economist named Cay, I think (forgive me, I'm still on my first cup of coffee) has been saying it will be the bloodiest thing the world has ever seen. I'm quite sure he's right.

I've seen a couple of memorable, provocative signs this year: "The French Aristocracy Never Saw It Coming Either" and "Pretty Soon the Poor Will Have Nothing Left to Eat But the Rich".

Not that I'm any great admirer of Buffet, but I'll grant him this much; at least he understands fat cows give more milk. To put things in agrarian terms, the rich are eating their seed corn.
