Tom Perkins, recently cited as World's Worst Being by kos on the front page, has been inspiring snarktweet after snarktweet all week.

I think we should just get a list together of all the things that are the same as Kristallnacht, or the Holocaust, or Hitler, or Something The Nazis did.

You know, just like the camps.

As I've got a few of these tweeted already, I'll start.

Things That Are Just Like The Camps

1. Unavailability of swordfish on a bed of saffron rice
2. Not getting a Qi counseling for remodeling the mansion
3. Being scolded for mowing down some riffraff doctor in one's yacht
4. Being one Google bus too short to save the rest of the billionaires
5. Having to share lifeboats with steerage class, thus leaving one's bling behind on the sinking Titanic
6. The indignity of a Gulfstream car-pool, and having to share it with a sub-ten figure income person
7. Votes not being decided on the basis of shares, just like proxy votes
8. The absence of enserfment, peonage, indentured servitude and other ways to assert rights of property on other human beings to make it worthwhile to keep them around, perhaps for sport
9. People not tipping their hats and bowing as their betters pass on the sidewalk
10. Making fun of Danielle Steele's body of literary work

Ok, your turn. :)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
