: SDF: Yeah, I'd like to know why the defenders of plutocracy, DonS and Frenchy and DrWhatever etc. think the rich are their best buddies. Respondents, form a queue.

Your terrific at distorting others views. Congratulations.

It'd be a lot more accurate though to say that Frenchy, for one, gives credit where credit is due. Example? How about that 'schmuck' Donald Trump for starters? I don't know what his pedigree is, and don't particularly care. His talent is not the endurance to stand in front of a Bridgeport all day, or to change tires. His talent is to organize, take risks, have a vision that most cannot concieve. Oh, and provide hundreds if not thousands of jobs. For those things he deserves credit. Not because he has a gabillion dollars, that's just democracies way of approving of what he does; ie; people voting with their pocket books, ie; economic democracy.
The same goes for others who have those talents to deal with people effectively.
From your point of view, I and others like myself are dupes, to stupid to know wheather or not we are being manipulated. From my point of view, you and others like you are malcontents with to much time on your hands and a bellyfull of bile. Remember the old saying; Those who can do while those who can't teach.
So sorry.
