Neil Boortz..... Asshat.

From Media Matters:
BOORTZ: OK, I've got an insensitive thought, folks. There's a news story out there -- there's a news story out there that rich people got some sort of an email notification of the terrorist threat against the New York subway before poor people did. OK? They're making a big deal out of it. Let me see if I can find it on the Drudge Report here....
Prattles on inanely about an article concerning a guy strangling a goose.

While he goes on about that here is the link to NY Daily News article in question: "Who Tipped The Big Shots" Seems like Neil found the article. Back to you Neil!
....OK, now here's the story. And it says, "The Homeland Security Department launched internal probes yesterday into whether its officials tipped off friends and relatives to a possible subway terror plot days before average New Yorkers were alerted." So the real gripe here is that it seems that some wealthy people got notified of the terror plot before the great unwashed, before the others.
So over 90% of the population are the others? Not a bad flick Neil but America is a two class society? Okay fine, it confirms a suspicion I have had for a long time. Apparently this also places us "others" on different priority list, as follows:

Now, the Daily News in New York has a headline: "Rich got terror tip." Rich got terror tip. OK, let's get logical about this, folks. Let's play logic with this. This is as it should be. OK? If we are faced with disaster in this country -- let me ask you this, OK? You just be logical. Get all of the emotion out of this. Get all of the emotion out of this. But if we are faced with a disaster in this country, which group do we want to save? The rich or the poor? Now, if you have time, save as many people as you can. But if you have to set some priorities, where do you go? The rich or the poor? OK? Who is a drag on society? The rich or the poor? Who provide the jobs out there? The rich or the poor? Who fuels -- you know, which group fuels our economy? Drives industry? The rich or the poor?....
Logic. Emotion. K' Neil. Whose the drag? How about a class of citizens who do not pay a fair share of taxes, and were just gift wrapped a series of tax cuts, while reaping all the rewards, Neil. Who fuels the economy? Kinda hard to drive the car without the fuel, how far would the CEO get if all the "Others" weren't behind their desks, driving the trucks, or pounding the registers, Neil. What you fail to understand is that the corporate environment is a system based on reciprocity. If the workers aren't there the rich are not rich, no production = no cash.
....In this country, people don't achieve squat. They sit around all the time waiting for somebody else to take care of them. They have children they can't afford. They're uneducated. They can barely read. And the high point of their day is Entertainment Tonight on TV. Which country do you want to live in? The country of the high achievers, or the country of sheep, the country of followers?" You know what you're gonna do. I don't see what the big problem is. I just don't. I mean, if you -- who do I want to save first? The rich. Save the poor first. Then, when everything is over, where are you gonna go for a job? OK, hey, if I get a tin cup, can I sit next to you and sell pencils too?
So the rich have seceded from the rest of society? You are also assuming, I suppose, that you are in the Rich class and not one us unwashed others, I wouldn't wait for that phone call from the CEO should Georgia get hit with a Katrina Part Deux. Believe it or not Rich people are every bit as replaceable as us "Others".

I would like to introduce you to a concept we call the stock market. Y'see most corporations have these stock thingys and they sell them. If you have enough of these shares they put you on the board of directors. CEO's get fired and board members replaced. We just move someone else into the position. If I was a Socialist or Communist I would say F$#@ the Rich but I am not. I believe in responsible capitalism, and I also believe that when disasters strike or are imminent, EVERYONE IS ENTITLED A FAIR CHANCE TO SURVIVE.
