To heck with the worker bees

December 16, 2012 

Clearly, the self-made millionaire is a superior being. He is a perfect example of Darwinism (survival of the fittest). However, some of us are merely worker bees. Are we to be thought of and treated as Henry Ford envisioned, merely drones designed to enhance the lives of the rich and the superrich? Destined to grovel and beg at their feet? And die young and disease-ridden?

I must agree with the wealthy folks; those of us who build your roads and cars, police your streets, take your pulse, teach your kids, put out your fires, deliver your mail and mow your lawns are not worth spit! Does every Republican and tea party member hold this view?
