Baby You’re a Rich Man

“The good news is that, according to the Obama administration, the rich will pay for everything. The bad news is that, according to the Obama administration, you’re rich.” ~ P. J. O’Rourke

The Wall Street Journal provides this fascinating look at where the money is in 2012. Where are you in this equation called life.

We know that life isn’t just about money, but it does make things interesting. I still offer this from Henry Miller:

“We have two American flags always: one for the rich and one for the poor. When the rich fly it means that things are under control; when the poor fly it means danger, revolution, anarchy.

Life isn’t only about getting’ yours. I can’t help but think that when enough people think it is all about themselves and forsake the disenfranchised, poor, elderly and handicapped, no religion in the world will shed a tear for your departure from this plain.
