A plumber helps your toilet flush. He makes $50k per year. A garbage collector keeps your home sanitary. He makes $43k per year. A construction worker builds you a place to live. He makes $33k per year. A teacher educates your children. She makes $39k per year. These people add real value to your life in the real economy and they make a pittance for their troubles. You add no value. Instead you suck value out of the real economy. You make crazy bets with other people's money and you make hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars per year. You stand next to the flow of money and pretend to be its caretaker while siphoning money out of it. You have no value. You are a parasite upon the backs of the Americans who produce real wealth. Wealth like food and shelter and transportation. They build that wealth. You take it away. If you think you really deserve a hundred times what a plumber or teacher makes makes, you are a psychopath. You are sick. Your values have become so distorted that you even crashed your own system. Not to worry, though. You convinced the politicians whose campaigns you fund to make us pay for it. You are a first-class citizen. You enjoy priviledge and power. We are second-class citizens. We scrape by. But you are not better than us. And our patience with your arrogance has expired. The mobs in the streets are a warning. Choose your next steps wisely. Scott Copeland 95033
