Playing the Percentages...

Beware billionaires reaching inside your wallet!

99% of the 99% would be happy to move into the villas, mansions and gated communities of the 1%.  Joe the Plumber is running for congress this fall in Ohio.

Meanwhile, 1% of the 1% would prefer to deny opportunity to all, apparently unable to endure their good fortune with good grace--hence the peevish chorus of "raise my taxes" by Messrs. Gates and Buffett.  Funny, how billionaires are so unconcerned with taxes.

This fall's election will measure to what extent the American people can be played by the politics of envy and resentment.
