I often lay awake at night, being a chronic insomniac, and spend my time trying to anticipate what will be the next thing attacked by the elites, and by that I mean those who run the show, and by that I mean the 1 percenters. After all, people like me are totally powerless, but those with billionaires are not. Doesn’t that seem uncontroversial? Well, don’t bet on it, because now even talking about billionaires is politically incorrect. Use instead, “people of means.”
“Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz doesn’t like people using the term 'billionaires' to describe billionaires, instead, the multi-billionaire prefers the term ‘people of means.’ Speaking at a Barnes & Noble book event last week, Schultz responded to a question about whether billionaires have too much power in the US by focusing on the term ‘billionaire.’
“The moniker ‘billionaire’ now has become the catchphrase,” he said. “I would rephrase that and say that ‘people of means’ have been able to leverage their wealth and their interest in ways that are unfair, and I think that speaks to the inequality but it also speaks to the special interests that are paid for people of wealth and corporations who are looking for influence.”
But, shouldn’t “people of means” also be rejected on grounds of political incorrectness? Surely the billionaires, people who one would have thought had a billion or more dollars, would be rich and powerful in a normal universe, but in our bizzaro world (see below for an explanation of this metaphor), exactly the opposite must be the case. In fact, Leftists and feminists say this all the time; that people like me, who struggle to get through the day, have the real power, and are patriarchal oppressors. Whoever wrote the script, or simulation for this reality, needs to be given a fail grade.
“In the Bizarro world of "Htrae", society is ruled by the Bizarro Code which states "Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!" In one episode, for example, a salesman is doing a brisk trade selling Bizarro bonds: "Guaranteed to lose money for you". Later, the mayor appoints Bizarro No. 1 to investigate a crime, "Because you are stupider than the entire Bizarro police force put together". This is intended and taken as a great compliment.”
