Nope - just listened to what people said and wrote.

There are 100's of threads right here honoring money....and stating that those who get it do so by being more productive.

Are you going to now claim that the Russian Fiction Writer isn't the Fountainhead of much of the current Right?

Go ahead. Do it. Make my day......

Who would you honor more? Sinclair Lewis, FDR or the Russian Fiction Writer?

That's a test!

Has that changed? Is that yet another hypocrisy of the Right? Is it only Coal and Real Estate and Oil/Chemical Barons that they love now?
It's cute you believe you pay more tax dollars than a billionaire.

I bet you can also throw a football over that mountain.

You don't think Trump has a few spies in the mingle? Don't be so naive.

Of course he does, Trump relies on Russia to do the spying for him.

Did he subcontract Hillary.

Since you didn't know, Hillary paid a foreign agent to work with Russians on a dossier to manipulate the vote.

Very good, I hear Obama is invited, as are many other celebrities. Its good that business leaders can relax and plan out new investment schemes.

I'm glad our favorite politicians and celebrities go as well and have fun. I hope I'm invited.

The right-wing loves to champion hard-work and lifting the bootstrap; but when someone of a particular political leaning or part of a particularly facts based industry gets rich; the right-wing piles on them.

They admire rich people who are failures - Rush Limbaugh, George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Sean Hannity, etc. And despise rich people who actually got there by achievement, even if they are Republicans - see Mitt Romney.

Are you a billionaire who complains about the wealth gap as your army of lawyers and accountants work to keep your taxes as low as possible?

If not, you probably weren't invited.

Exactly. The Russians have no loyalty. Only someone as dumb as Trump (and his supporters) would trust them as friends.

The dossier didn't meet the Democrats' standard and Hillary discarded it, but it more than meets the Republicans' because they embraced it and took it over from Hillary.

Of course wemake fun of the hypocrites.

Warren Buffet complains he doesn't pay enough in taxes while his lawyers are fighting the IRS to lower his taxes.
