The Billionaire Cry Babies

What is it with this continuing complaint from the right wing and from at least some of the billionaires that they are being “villainized” by Obama and other Democrats?  Do they even have a clue as to what that word means?  I haven’t seen anyone anywhere accusing the rich of being “villains” or for that matter, even hinting that they are the bad guys.  No one is even accusing them of doing anything wrong.  Not even in extremely liberal circles have I seen or heard any of this.

What people are “villainizing” is the system itself that has allowed for such a disparity in wealth distribution to happen.  The one percenters for whom things worked out best are not to be blamed at all — they didn’t break any rules, they did nothing wrong.  For the most part they worked within the system as it is, and reaped their rewards justly.  No one is faulting them.  It was the system that was wrong, and that’s what needs to be fixed.  The one percenters will still be the wealthiest of the wealthy, they just may have to get by with a teeny bit less money than they had before.  But for Jeebus sake, they’ve got thousands of times more money than they know what to do with already.  A more fair system is not going to change their life styles one bit.  What the fuck is wrong with these people that they worship every last penny they have, and in fighting back all they can do is make shit up like how they are being “villainized”?  And what the fuck is wrong with the mainstream media, that these people are not being called out for this shit?  Liberal media, my ass.
