(This is a reblog – sorry – busy today)
It has come to my attention that there is something in this world called a “billionaire”. I didn’t even know this was possible, but apparently some people out there have over a billion dollars! Not a million or ten million or 100 million, but a BILLION! So, of course I’m being silly… I know there are billionaires out there, but I think we have been too willing as a people to accept that outrageous fact. We should be shocked and angered in much the same way that I was pretending to be. There is no reason that a single human being should ever NEED over a billion dollars. And we have over 600 in this country!
Why doesn’t the government take the excess? Forbes reported that the richest 400 people in this country are worth 3.2 TRILLION DOLLARS! I’m no mathematician…
