  •  Of course, it's self-obvious that some (0+ / 0-)

    people are crazy and self-destructive. (Koch's, etc.)

    I don't think the same is true of Gates, Buffett, and most other extremely rich people. Nor are they so helpless as to just wring their hands while the crazies drive the convertible-of-state off the cliff.

    I can't help it. I love the state of Texas. It's a harmless perversion. - Molly Ivins

    •  I quite agree. (0+ / 0-)

      Most extremely rich people are probably not part of the libertarian fringe.  (Though, to be clear, I don't know any billionaires.  Their country club must not like my jeans.)

      By the way, as much as I loved Molly Ivins, I can help it.  I don't love the state of Texas.  It's not a harmless perversion. It's a deeply harmful perversion. I except Austin, of course, which is a different country (or maybe universe) from Texas.
