I Have Said That People Who Have Way Too Much Money Are Effed Up in the Head

And I mean that sincerely.

Here is another example of somebody who is so totally fucked up mentally, he thinks he actually "earned" his billions, and to think he may have gotten it through hiring an army of lawyers and accountants to game the tax laws or to outright steal it from the masses is unthinkable to him.

Being a vulture capitalist is virtually synonymous with being a bank robber.

What he doesn't get is that money is a finite resource, so somebody else is losing money so that an asshole like him can have more.

A California multimillionaire has attracted ridicule after the Wall Street Journal published his letter comparing criticism of super-rich Americans to the Holocaust.

Venture capitalist Thomas Perkins, who is thought to be worth around $8 billion, wrote to the paper from San Francisco, where a class war is currently brewing over rich tech employees who are driving up the city's cost of living.

He opened his letter to the paper: 'Writing from the epicenter of progressive thought, San Francisco, I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its "one percent," namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the "rich.'

Mr Perkins describing the hatred attracted by Google workers in San Francisco and an incident in which his former wife author Danielle Steele was branded a 'snob' in the San Francisco Chronicle in a row over the height of her hedge.

It's really fucking bad form to whine that the truth about the filthy rich like those in his class is similar to what happened in Nazi Germany when in fact what is happening to this country is becoming more and more like fascism BECAUSE wealth is being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands and corporations are basically in cahoots with government.
