Thee extreme wealthy flatter themselves, but it is their money that "works" for them, and if they ever had to do a days worth of hard work, they'd quit.
Billionaire Sam Zell today:
"I guess my feeling is that he’s right," Zell said when asked by Bloomberg's Betty Liu how he felt about Perkins' stance [which was that minor criticism of the 1% equaled the Kristallnacht by the Nazis]. "The 1 percent are being pummeled because it’s politically convenient to do so."HuffPo
Zell then said the problem is that all non-rich are just jealous that they don't have the same work ethic that the country's wealthiest do.
"The problem is that the world and this country should not talk about envy of the 1 percent. It should talk about emulating the 1 percent," he said. "The 1 percent work harder. The 1 percent are much bigger factors in all forms of our society."
What a fucking pig.
More and more, these people sound like the French royalty and aristocracy right before the revolution. Perhaps they will create the same outcome for themselves.
