In one of the Podesta emails leaked by WikiLeaks, he flagged some comments by Hillary Clinton in her paid speeches that he identified as potentially damaging.
“Part of the problem with the political situation, too, is that there is such a bias against people who have led successful and/or complicated lives,” Hillary told Goldman Sachs on Oct. 29, 2013. “You know, the divestment of assets, the stripping of all kinds of positions, the sale of stocks.”
As usual, Hillary hits it right on the nose. A bias against the wealthy is the problem with the political situation in this country.
I couldn't have said it better myself.
Are you sick of poor people complaining louder than everyone else?
Well, the Koch Brothers has a solution for that.
The problem with most civil rights movements is that they don't pay very well.
That's about to change, thanks to billionaire industrialist Charles Koch's weekend proclamation that the causes he and his network of uber-wealthy conservative political donors embrace are akin to "past successful freedom movements."
"Look at the American revolution, the anti-slavery movement, the women's suffrage movement, the civil rights movement," Koch said. "All of these struck a moral chord with the American people. They all sought to overcome an injustice. And we, too, are seeking to right injustices that are holding our country back."
The injustices in need of righting include the minimum wage (get rid of it), environmental regulations (get rid of them), solar power (ick!), women's reproductive rights (they don't need those) and corporate taxes (booooo!).
All I can say is Thank Gawd that someone is looking out for rich people. Other than rich people.
