You Just Can’t Trust the Rich. American Edition.

As all of us in this EuroWonderland of encroaching socialism know, we simply cannot trust the rich. Scumbags the lot of them, ever working to grind the faces of the poor and destitute into the dirt. From Outside the Beltway comes further proof of this simple and basic fact of economic life:

There are rumblings that, despite a recent discovery of $15 million in leftover campaign money, some of the Kerry campaign advance team are having trouble getting paid for the last several weeks of the campaign. Worse, many of them have not seen a per diem check since the end of August, we're told, and they do not know when they're going to get paid.
Phone calls apparently don't get returned and, if they do, the mantra is "next week" or "you're on my list."

There is further evidence from Captain Ed:
  Last July, Kerry left an $847 bill unpaid for a small airport used by the Kerry airplane:

When the biggest plane to ever land on the island touched down with U.S. Sen. John Kerry and his entourage, airport manager Al Peterson never imagined he would have trouble getting paid. ... But a caterer who bought food on the island for Kerry's campaign jet ducked one bill and haggled over another.

"Apparently they don't feel like he needs to pay fees to the airport," Peterson said. "I gather the senator objects to that because his aide quoted him as saying that he already pays taxes on the island."
Peterson is out $847 from the two visits Kerry has paid to the island since he became the presumptive Democratic nominee.

So, there we go then, absolute proof that the Guardian is right, that the rich have only one desire, one motivation in life, to screw the poor.

I grew up with the children of the very rich. Did you ever wonder how the rich got that way?
