Response to babylonsister (Original post)

16. I wish

that when someone talks about something like treason they would at least distinguish between the top .1% (or even the top .5%) and many of the others in the bottom of the top 1%. It takes income of about $350,000 to be in the top 1%. That's a HUGE amount of money, but I don't think it's enough for admittance into the power cabal.

In fact, there must be some term to talk about the group that he really means. Because I don't think he's talking about money per se; I think he's talking about power and that kind of money that equals real power.

Sorry if that's a small nitpick, but while I think my cardiologist and her dr husband live very nicely, I don't think they're what he's talking about.
