  •  My Parent Are Rich (18+ / 0-)

    really rich. I recall my mom saying the day she knew she was rich and others were not. It made her sorry. That others had less then she had. My mom ain't a liberal, but it is easy for her to understand. Why others don't get this amazes me.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

    •  I know a number of wealthy people. (9+ / 0-)

      Only one makes a show of his wealth, and he doesn't seem to grasp the connection between his ostentaciousness and a lack of people he truly considers friends.

    •  I liked the way Al Gore handled this (6+ / 0-)

      With a background nearly as privileged as Romney's, he talked openly about his fortunate life and concluded by saying he wanted to help expand opportunity to more people. I don't ever recall John Kerry pretending he wasn't a rich guy but he was articulate in talking about making life better for others. You have to own your life, instead of making up a fake one you think will play better. That's why it's so irritating to hear that the Romneys were so poor in college they couldn't "entertain." Just saying that shows you how isolated they were by privilege. Obviously, to them, "entertaining" meant white table cloths, crystal, china and silverware — and nothing else qualified. To most college students "entertaining" means getting friends to chip in for pizzas and a keg. We "entertained" in college all the time that way.

      •  There seems to have always been SOME rich folks (0+ / 0-)

        who understood their fortunate position, and have endeavored to use their position to help others to achieve success, or provide some other kind of general benefit to society.

        and then there are the rich assholes hemorrhoids who care of nothing but how much MORE wealth they can accumulate, without giving up ANY of it, or using any of it for beneficial social purpose...

        Romney falls right in line with other such like Tyco's Dennis Kozlowski, Worldcom's Bernie Ebbers and, of course, Enron's Kenneth Lay.  

        Besides Mitt, guess who else attended Cranbrook Schools in Michigan? Convicted Wall Street criminal Ivan Boesky.

        For a better America, vote the GOP out of office whenever and wherever possible and as soon (and as often) as possible!
