A government OF the top 1% BY the top 1% and FOR the top 1%

The personal and the political are today in perfect alignment. Virtually all U.S. senators, and most of the representatives in the House, are members of the top 1 percent when they arrive, are kept in office by money from the top 1 percent, and know that if they serve the top 1 percent well they will be rewarded by the top 1 percent when they leave office.

A unique twist to this particular tale of American inequality is an explanation of why it’s bad not just for the rest of us, but even for that top 1%. I hope at least some of them read it.

    I’ve been saying this stuff for years. Now I’m practicing my marksmanship and getting ready for blood in the streets.
