Links 7/10

I am back from visiting a friend who is a top 1-percenter in the Boston-Washington corridor, so I am chockerblot with dismay at the Pollyanna Obama-boosterism of those riding on the Stimulus Gravy Train.  It really took me aback to be asked to contribute to groceries by someone with two homes, including a vacation home on a beautiful island in Maine and annual compensation close to half a million dollars.  The greed and unawareness of how everyone else lives of the top 1 percent is simply astounding.

  1. I read your blog regularly, and I am confused. Maybe I am a bit too drunk, but are you telling me that your friend who is a "pretend millionaire" is broke and asked you to contribute to groceries? And he owns two homes and is a Washington insider? Oh ****, may God help this country.
