    Not in the sense of the working person does.

    Nothing to do with the nuvo rich but there is a very interesting correlation between the ultra rich and the homeless. Neither care what other people think of them or the way they dress. Some ultra wealthy look like the homeless.

    One of them has to scrap for food. The other has been taken care of. There is a big ****ing difference.

    Right, so you're not capable of providing any evidence. That's VERY telling!

    You feel safer walking through poor neighborhoods at night?

    True that. It's the middle class who are expected to play by societal rules and they watch each other closely to make sure they're obeyed. The rich and powerful, who often establish the moral codes in any culture, can easily hide from them - while the poor can ignore them. Those who want to move up a social notch are most likely to abide by these unwritten but well understood rules.

    WAPO has a super amusing column today about just one more thing that "offends" ms AOC.. Line standers. Evidently, she just found out that folks...gasp.... pay other people to stand in line for them. (pay ranges from between $25 and $35 hr) depending on the hearing and the expected size of the audience... And this "offends" ms AOC.

    Sometimes, you just have to ask, WTF? First, she of course mischaracterizes those who pay others for waiting in line for them as "paying for access" when, obviously, it is not. Second, she castigates this "abuse of money".. why? Because folks are willing to make it? Not simply willing to stay home? Broke? I know. this is revelatory for her. A whole city of folks who hustle for a living... unlike NYC.. which is funny in and of itself..

    I swear, you can't make this stuff up. And the authenticity of her bewilderment is just priceless. Yup. I think this one is definitely a keeper.
