A few random thoughts

Hmmm, Marlon Brando is dead. You were right, farwing. How did I miss that happening?

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have broken up. America’s first political prisoner is free at last! Really, is anyone surprised? I don’t think anyone was buying the Palin family’s pretension that they were suddenly gonna be a happy married couple just cause they couldn’t figure out a way to get a hold of some condoms without mommy knowing about it.

The list of the 50 wealthiest people in the world just came out, and if you add up all the net worths of just the Americans on the list, the total net worth comes to $294.9 billion dollars. That’s about half of what Obama’s stimulus package is costing us. Hey, Michael Dell, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Jim, Alice, and Christy Walton, Michael Bloomberg, Larry Page…ever think about donating a couple billion to the American government to help stabilize things a little? In my family, the people who have money give it to the people who don’t. It just seems like the decent way to be.

Also, there are four Waltons (as in Wal-Mart) on the list, each worth $17.6 billion, making the family worth about 70.4 billion. Yet they pay their workers below the poverty line and 20% less than other retail workers. Tell me again how that’s not class warfare?
