Common Stock

From Album 5

What really struck me about this revelation of what the one percenters do in their leisure time was…how ordinary and even common they are. Nothing you wouldn’t see at a workplace party or even your average business convention: a few tasteless jokes, cover songs with rearranged lyrics, (to their credit, at least they weren’t MC Rove and Dancing Dave Redux), some fraternity-type hazing. About all that’s unusual about these people is…their psychotic insistence that their ever-more hoggish share of the economic pie is somehow deserved.
