    This does not surprise me. It's the Ayn Rand mentality of the 1%.

    Have you done an analysis of the 1% by political affiliation?

    No, I haven't. Have you? However, Republicans are the only ones I hear praising Ayn Rand.

    Poorer people generally have bigger hearts - which may help explain why they're poorer...

    All you've said is that the giving of the 1% doesn't count in the strange math of liberals.

    Every time I see a thread started by you, I expect something really stupid, and you never disappoint.
