I cried because I had no shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet. Right! The poor starving underclass in the United States is obese. They walk in $100 footwear while talking on cell phones and go home with their take out meals to flat screen TVs in their air conditioned publicly subsidized apartments. Income inequality is the single phoniest issue in this country today. Why do you care what someone else has if you have clothes to wear, a roof over your head and food on your table? This desire for equality of results is envy, pure and simple. Why should I hate a man who drives a Rolls while I’m stuck in my Hyundai? “Income inequality” is a ploy to generate jealousy and envy among ignorant people who feel entitled to the fruit of other people’s labor. For young Mr. Solomon (not to be confused with the Solomon of renowned wisdom) to compare the obese “poor” of the present day United States to the starving peasants of Tsarist Russia or Mexican peons is worse than dishonest. It is a typical argument made by a sophist, or perhaps a sophomore.
