Guess Which Rich Person Got 62% Richer While The People Got Poorer

June 17, 2011

As I pointed out before, “limousine liberals” are a genuine scourge on our nation.

Democrats love to say that they are out there to right the wrongs and even the scales between the rich and the poor.  The fact that it is an outright lie of the most demagogic and cynical form imaginable is irrelevant.

The epitome of limousine liberalism got 62% richer this past year:

The powerful get richer: Pelosi’s wealth grows by 62%

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saw her net worth rise 62 percent last year, cementing her status as one of the wealthiest members of Congress.

Pelosi was worth at least $35.2 million in the 2010 calendar year, according to a financial disclosure report released Wednesday. She reported a minimum of $43.4 million in assets and about $8.2 milion in liabilities.

For 2009, Pelosi reported a minimum net worth of $21.7 million.

How’s that crony capitalism of Obama working out?  Well, it’s working out great for the liberal elites who get to benefit from it.

It’s working out awful for everybody else.

Not that “everybody else” matters a damn to these people.

Amazingly, the propagandist Washington Post tried to turn the fact that the 87 brand new incoming Freshmen House Republicans have debts.  Damn them for being like the common people and having to scrounge for mortgages while professinal liberal politicians dine on caviar.  These conservative freshmen should be like San Fran Nan and cut all kinds of special deals for themselves and their districts.  How dare they try to change the crony capitalist (i.e. fascist) system when they should be gaming it like liberals do.

These people are hypocrites beyond contempt.  Jeremiah Wright – as in Obama’s mentor and spiritual advisor – railed in his sermons that “white folks’ greed runs a world in need.”  And then he retired to a fancy gated community full of the very people he denounced even though he’d actually been one all along.

These are the people who demand a giant government system that runs every aspect of our lives and then suck on that system like bloated leaches.

They’re just like the Stalinist commissars of old; they rail about the suffering of the proletariat while they exploit that proletariat more than any system that had ever come before.  They talk about how they alone care about the poor while they feast on caviar in their fancy dachas.  Liberals scream for higher taxes on small business owners knowing that they will be able to write those laws in ways that protect their incomes to the very limited extent that they think those laws even apply to them at all.  Meanwhile, of course, even as these communist commissars screached the same screeds about “the people” year after year, they amassed fortunes and lifestyles for themselves that they would NEVER allow “their people” to have.
