The Self-Hating Rich

I’m fed up with that subset of my fellow rich who seem embarrassed by their vast wealth. Yes, I’m talking about you Mark Dayton and Nick Coleman – but there are plenty of others who love to plead poverty. I have one thing to say: THERE IS NO SHAME IN BEING RICH! Come out of the closet (or should I say the vault?) Nick Coleman! Don’t pretend it’s a hardship to forgo your Senate salary Mark Dayton! Don’t try to tell us that your children are on the verge of starvation Latrell Sprewell! You are among the richest of the rich in the richest country on earth.

If you hate yourselves so much for being rich, I have a suggestion: Quit your cushy jobs and give away all of your money.

No, I didn’t think you would.
