Forbes is reporting that, despite the worst depression in our lifetimes, the top 400 wealthiest Americanswealth grew by 8%!  These 400 people have a combined wealth of $1.37 trillion.

But, by god, they need the tax break that their man, George W. Bush, gave them to be extended!

Bill Gates, the wealthiest of them all, now seems to be using his foundation to peddle privatizing public schools.  Let me guess:  part of that process will somehow make him even wealthier!  You know, I remember Ted Turner had to publicly shame Gates into giving money for charitable purposes before he would give a dime to anyone.  Now Bill seems to understand how to wield his influence through “philanthropy.”

You know, I wouldn’t care if the super rich got even wealthier if their doing so didn’t continue to crush the average guy on the street.
