Animal Farm 2012

The morning after the election on the work train:  four folks, looking decidedly middle-class discussing the election results.  Three are Obama/democrat supporters  scolding the Romney supporter for being part of the stingy and greedy.  "The rich have more than they are entitled to.  They have a duty to give some of it to us" said the man while the two women nodded in agreement.  The Romneyite was flabbergasted and wasn't able to reply.  A duty to give to these people? So they can buy more stuff at the expense of someone who earned the means through work and investment and wasn't given it?   Is that where we are headed now?  How much longer until we have our own version of Animal Farm?

I turned on my IPod and closed my eyes.  I didn't want to hear any more.
