  •  I'd wager that any random person on public (7+ / 0-)

    assistance has more worth than Mr. Limbaugh.

    No, that's not quite right.

    Every person on public assistance has more worth than Mr. Limbaugh!

    •  Moral and economic worth (0+ / 0-)

      are quite different things.

      •  There are quite a few folks who think that . . . (4+ / 0-)

        material wealth is the best indicator of success and the pursuit of same as the end-all be-all of human existence.

        Being a decent human being doesn't enter into the equation for those folks. They would rather look up to the likes of Limbaugh than to recognize the human decency of anyone stuck in poverty struggling to survive, many of whom would go hungry to help out another.

        It's a twisted world.
