On the apparently liberal leanings of many of the super-rich…

I’ve had so many people ask me over the years: “Why? Why are all these rich guys all of a sudden so liberal? Buffet. Gates.” Folks, there’s a simple answer. The filthy rich will say they are liberal. They will do things in public that reflect that they might be liberal, to keep the peasants with the pitchforks away from ‘em. It’s all a game. Have you ever heard of a family called the Kennedys. Have you ever heard of a family called the Rockefellers. Every filthy-rich individual or family must spout/support/do, in public, liberal stuff. It is how they convince people that their wealth is justified and is untouchable. It is a protection mechanism. It is to keep the Occupy Wall Street crowd off of their front yards and instead on the front yards of people who work at AIG. That’s all it is.
