The fattest cat of all...

Frank Fleming points out a slight oversight on the part of all the class envy protestors:
While the “Occupy” people pick on a few small-fry millionaires and billionaires, they haven’t taken on the one who has far, far too much money, got his wealth through dubious means and doesn’t appreciate the cash he has.
I’m speaking, of course, of that fat-cat weasel Uncle Sam.
If you want a great example of income inequality, compare Sam to any minuscule billionaire. He spends the net worth of Bill Gates in a couple of weeks. In fact, this one guy takes in a staggering 28 percent of all the wealth earned in this nation.
If you’re wondering where all our money went, look to the country’s only trillionaire, who is stroking his weird goat beard and laughing at us.
It wouldn’t be so bad if Uncle Sam earned his money, but he doesn’t. He’s never produced anything — he gets all his money through deception.
For instance, he said he was going to provide retirement savings for everyone, but the whole thing is a Ponzi scheme in which Uncle Sam constantly raids the funds while giving people a horrible return on their investments. He’s bilked people out of trillions with that scam; Bernie Madoff is a shoplifter by comparison.
It's also worth noting who receives some of the largesse Sam doles out...
