    By working their “butts off”, do they mean getting their butts all wrinkled and shriveled in the hot tubs?

    Are we finally going to find out why the dumb masses hate rich business people that actually produce a tangible product, but venerate rich actors and producers who are paid obscene amounts of money to merely entertain them. By the way, Gary Trudeau is in the Canadian top 1%.

    I’m beginning to class Jeff along side Duke’s son. Maybe even a little lower than that. He’s got the burden of dragging Dukes’s sorry rear end around and still be effective.

    Jeff’s goofball book is a “tangible product”? Also, not everyone venerates rich celebrates. Some of us don’t pay attention to them at all.

    One shark in the ocean, another in the hot tub and one destined to be swimming with the fishes.

    Jeff is morphing into Duke.

    I guess that would be an interesting point if GaRRy Trudeau was Canadian.

    Which means what? We can deport him?

    credit default swaps are a tangible product? Buying a company leveraging it to it’s maiximum to pay out bonuses and then letting it go bankrupt is a tangible product?

    No the “dumb masses” figured out that some of the 1% has been gaming the system with their money so that they get money transfered from the 99% to them an it has been going up astronomically while ever body else got way less than they should for the hard work they put in. An the poor payed more in taxes.

    One more time — GARRY Trudeau is an American cartoonist. PIERRE Trudeau is a former Prime Minister of Canada.

    Oh, I rank Duke’s son much higher. He carries Duke, is smart and works hard (okay, not overly ethical, but think of his upbringing). In his world, he’s about the only one who has any sense.

    The first two panels were the funny part. Jeff might have to move his company offshore, to get motivated.

    “Are we finally going to find out why the dumb masses hate rich business people that actually produce a tangible product, but venerate rich actors and producers who are paid obscene amounts of money to merely entertain them.”


    All of us venerate conspicuous people who say what we want to hear.


    I’ve never met anyone who hated some for being rich, if they thought that the rich person earned what he had. Making money and earning money are two very different things which are too often confused.

    And you don’t have to be dumb to believe that “from those to whom much is given, much is expected” (Luke 12:48).

    I also don’t get the distinction you would make between businessmen who make “tangible products” like DVDs and the businessmen who who make the content that go onto those DVDs. Go through a Walmart, and tell me what part of the goods sold are necessary for survival, and what part are merely for comfort and other forms of entertainment. If all the businesses in this country that are primarily in the amusement and entertainment business were to close down, how much do you think would be left?

    Heidi woke this morning and immediately stepped on a rake.
