A Tale of Two Wealthies
There are two classes of wealthy people:
1. The working rich from whom progressive socialists want to take money to give to the poor so they don't have to give to the poor themselves.
2. The pretending-to-be-working-but-aren't rich over whom those same progressive socialists fawn and go all atwitter (sometimes literally).
It is a sad fact that nothing elicits the admiration of the masses like someone who looks down on them. We are endowed by our creator with a natural desire to love and adore Him who is greater than ourselves. Sadly, too many of us have chosen earthly gods for ourselves and that natural tendency to worship that which is greater than ourselves has been co-opted.
I blame Satan, of course, but I also blame the short-sighted "masses" who have chosen to worship something more like themselves rather than someone who is so beyond them they can hardly comprehend Him. The original temptation Satan offered in the Garden of Eden was that we should seek to be gods ourselves. Failing in that (though not without trying), we've elected gods for ourselves and elevated them to airy heights where, apparently oxygen-deprived, they go all stupid. That's the only way I can explain the monumental dim-wittedness of the idle "progressive" rich. I mean really. What are these guys thinking?
Well, actually, I suppose the question should be more like, "What are these guys NOT thinking?"
Just one man's opinion.
