    Watching the news this evening, I saw a bit of a fucked up story. Seems that FAUX Nooze contributer Bernie Goldberg believes that we should build a monument to the rich.

    What's his reasoning? He seems to think that it's the tax cuts for the rich that is saving the economy.

    As soon as I can get a link for this story, I will post it here.

    What do the rest of you think?

    I think that America is/was a great nation in spite of the rich, not because of them.

    Like I said, as soon as I can get a real link, I'll post it.

    He doubled down on that statement on O'reilly by the way.

    Only trouble is, if I link to a left leaning site, most people will disbelieve it anyway. Probably tomorrow I'll have a link.

    I think it took a vast amount of people - from different backgrounds and cultures - from different walks of life - from poor and wealthy backgrounds - to build this great nation. To dismiss anyone's contribution is childish.

    Should the wealthy have a monument. No. America is a monument - to all Americans - whatever their background.

    Jealous fools always need a scapegoat... someone to blame for their failures. It's easier than facing the truth... that they alone are responsible for their situation.
