  •  "Working" people? (6+ / 0-)

    They're not me, so they're not my problem! Let them drive wherever they want, but they're not coming into my gated community! I don't care if they have to spend two hours just to cross their lower-middle-class town. Screw them! I got mine! If they didn't get theirs, it's because they don't deserve to have a good life, like me in my McMansion.

    Those so-called "working" people (who are undoubtedly secretly on welfare from my tax dollars) really should have thought of that before I decided to have their houses paved over so I could more quickly get to where I need to be.

    But don't forget that most men without property would rather protect the possibility of becoming rich, than face the reality of being poor. (1776)

      you built your corporate facility on the tollway between your house and the city, where you can take a limo to the airport, then you moved the toll booth ten miles toward me and tripled the toll.

      How do you expect me to get to work?

        It is simply not my problem.

        I do not like the tone of your insolence. Don't you know how to address your betters? I will have the police arrest you or any of "you people" who come into my neighborhood or fail to pay the tolls that I can quite easily afford. The fact that these tolls keep you living at or below the poverty line is just an added bonus for keeping "you people" away from my children. My logic is quite infallible.

        Now, excuse me while I close my eyes, plug up my ears, and turn my back on you.
