Pennies and Cake

Folks will let you down. Not all folks, of course. As I ponder the difference between the rich, the really rich, and the rest of us, it seems that I have been taken advantage of by wealthy folks disproportionately.

Do you suppose that I should consider that the affluent have lower morals than the rest of us. I have to admit that the idea crosses my mind.

In some cases, of course, it is true. Follow the money, right?

For the most part, however, the truly rich just have more tools at their disposal to cheat. Who makes the rules? Who owns the governments?

A camel's eye, buddy, a camel's eye.

  1. Think about the Titanic: where were the rich? Where were the lesser classes? Who was gently awakened by the staff knock-knocking on their doors? Who was awakened because the water was a-comin' in through the walls? Who grabbed a cocktail on the way to the boats? Who grabbed their kids and tried to just get up the stairs? Who got press coverage? Who was never heard from again?
