A Special Kind of Stupid

Oh honey! You are a special kind of stupid, aren’t you?  Let me find a few puppets and some crayons and I’ll see if I can fill you in. 

You must have attended economics on the day they talked about long term consequences of wealth distribution.

You are right.  Years down the road, the outcome will tend to be a trade of one tyrant for another. That is bad and we will draw a frowny face.

But, if you had gone to the rest of the lectures, you would have learned something very important to rich people. 

 Before it all falls apart, the soon to be tyrant starts out charismatic and capable. 

Oh I’m sorry. I mean before the leader starts acting bad, he looks like he going to be very good.  So we will put a smiley face by the frowny face.

Now the smiley face, frowny face guy tells all the people who don’t have dinner to go to your house and get some dinner. 

 Sometimes all those people with no dinner are very, very angry.  I’ll draw you in your big house and lots and lots of angry people around your house.

So what do you think might happen to the people in the great big houses? 

It might be time for you to have a talk with your daddy.  Ask if Czar Nicholas II and Marie Antoinette were celebrating the level of poverty. 

I will even give you the puppets and the crayons to take to your dad. I think he might need them.

If you ever watch Shark Tank, you will know Kevin O'Leary from the clip is a total money hungry dink. You need to youtube shark tank teepee tree. This cute guy makes an awesome thing for farmers but Kevin wants to make it way too expensive. The cute guy is just confused why Kevin would do that to farmers. The Paul Mitchell owner saves the day!
