    If you're actually a 1%er, you don't drive at all. You have people who do that.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    My experience with actual 1%ers is that they use their privilege to avoid public group situations, and when they find themselves inconvenienced by the unwashed they extricate themselves and chalk it up to experience. Oh wait, that's what I do, Im not 1%.
    The fastest growing area of home improvement is the home theater. The wealthy have been putting theaters in their homes for so long, that upper middle income level homes are built with a home theater. No need to go through the hassle of the movie experience.

    I have known a LOT of very wealthy people. The one thing common among them is with real wealth, the quieter they become about it. The trumpeters are the historically un-wealthy who recently made some money. The REAL trumpeters are more likely to say "Do you know who I am. I have 5,000 facebook friends" than someone saying "I drive a Lexus."
