Oh, shut up!!

by Rich Miles

I guess my hiatus ends sooner than expected.

Interesting title to this piece, huh?

Anyway, the point of the title, and the point of this article, is that I am SICK TO EFFIN' DEATH of the rich bastards in this country whining about CLASS WAR!!

I mean, it's demonstrable that there is no class war in this country, because there are any rich people left. If there were a genuine class war going on in America, there would be dead rich people strewn all over hell and back.

But there aren't. More's the pity.

So anyway, here's the thing: rich people have been getting a free ride, or perhaps it would be better to call it a net-gaining ride, for decades now, and now that certain pundits are putting some rich people on the spot, and embarrassing the poor little lambs, that term keeps popping up: Class War. Class War. Class War.

But if it ever came to that, we poor people would lose, because we don't have the resources to buy the guns and hire the mercenaries. We'd be at a definite military disadvantage.

But then, we'd be much more pissed off. That counts for something. Doesn't it? We'd be much more motivated to off as many of the bastards as possible. Whereas hired soldiers wouldn't have such motivation, by and large

Anyway, yes - let me be clear on this point: there is indeed a cold class war being conducted in America today. Not a shooting war, of course, but a war nonetheless. Because rich people have been despicable shitbags for long enough. Yuppie scum. Robber barons. And the rest of us are just trying to get by. Literally.

I got nothing else to say here. I used to want to be rich. But not any longer. It would require me to become an asshole. Or more of one than I already am, anyway. I still want to have more money, but I wouldn't want to be rich.

So that's the class war for you in a nutshell. I'm sure books have been written on the topic, but that's the short version. Rich people are the most anti-democratic segment of this alleged democracy, and still they cry in their beer.

Rant over. For the moment.
