2. Amazing hos those fuckwits think money from the labor of others confers wisdom

Men seemingly have made that same mistake since the neolithic really got going. I don't know who's worse, those fuckwits or the fuckwits who grovel at their feet, hoping a little magic dust will fall on them.

The people least qualified to run this country are the rapacious capitalists, enabled by the religious frauds they've coopted.
