One-percenter milks system then slams it in phony soundbites

By April 26, 2014September 30th, 2014Uncategorized

While U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sleeps in her $5 million mansion in Cambridge, and got paid $350,000 to teach just one class at Harvard, she had the audacity to say in an interview with Jon Stewart this week that “the system is rigged to benefit the rich.”

Yes, Sen. Warren, that would be you. Under a free-market, capitalist system, you became a U.S. senator and multimillionaire who’s own net worth hovers around $14.5 million, according to personal financial disclosure reports filed in 2011.

Newsflash for Warren: With that kind of cash, you are a one-percenter! That very demographic you vilified and campaigned against.

Yet liberal hypocrites, like Warren and countless fellow phonies in Hollywood, want to denigrate a capitalist system — and make America a socialist country after they personally benefited from a free-market system. Now once Warren and Hollywood hypocrites are living lavishly in their ivory towers, they preach about “income inequality” and the “little guys.”

Memo to Warren: Students at Harvard are among the little guys. Like millions of other college students across America, they are paying outrageously high tuition so one-percenters like yourself can reap the benefits.

If Sen. Warren truly cared about the little guy, why not return most of her salary to Harvard for teaching just one class and lobby fellow liberal professors to do the same? Then Harvard could actually lower its tuition costs for all students. Sounds like practical income redistribution to me.

It’s obvious, that despite liberals consistently blaming former President George Bush, Wall Street, the Koch Brothers, Ted Cruz and the GOP for virtually everything, it’s actually anti-work, liberal progressive policies that are screwing over the little guy, namely students. The Invincibles voted for President Obama not once, but twice, hoping he would help them get a good job upon graduation. Flash forward to 2014 and one can only feel sorry for these hope-and-change dreamers. Fifteen months into Obama’s second term, too many college grads are unemployed, underemployed, still living with their parents or working for the minimum wage.

But wait! They get to join Obamacare!

Bottom line: Sen. Warren and other political one-percenters spout phony slogans just to get re-elected and siphon money from their donors’ wallets. It’s time for college students to get street-smart and stop swallowing every vacuous soundbite.
