what is wrong with the world today. The help being lippy , not getting prefferential treatment at restaurants and worst of all not being able to buy an election ,no matter how much money you put into dark superpacs.

So, this dude carries around an unloaded weapon and points it at people?

But the anachronistic elevator operator had already started to shut the door.

First, those selfish diners wouldn't accept money to give him their table. Then the elevator guy wouldn't wait for him! What's a guy supposed to do when you have a terrible evening like this?! He would be well in his rights to shoot that elevator guy and even those diners! I think he showed how decent a human being he is by not doing what is well within his rights as a rich, and therefore, important person in this world!

He'll have his pistols and license back before elevator guy gets his pink slip.

Or maybe he just unloaded it. Which does not rule out drugs and/or Darwin.

The "#1 King of All Fun" sure sounds like it.

way south: ...and seriously, who walks around with an unloaded revolver?


Nobody, but someone who doesn't want to go to jail might dump the bullets in a trash can before the cops show up, seeing as you know, nobody though to detain him.

I wonder how many $100 bills he dropped to bribe his way out of criminal charges.

/I'd be in jail for assault with a lethal weapon if I tried that...

Not to mention no "little people" would ever get a gun permit in NYC, you can only get one if you are rich enough to afford bodyguards


/but having your bodyguard go all "thug life" on a elevator operator just doesn't stroke the ego enough

Better yet, how do you get a job as an NYC elevator operator? Easy job, and unionized!
 
2012-11-22 09:36:09 PM
Some were all concerned that the rich would leave if we taxed them at a reasonable rate.

I would hope you would all take the hint and tell the farking rich to -

I dunno, this was a pretty crackhead move. So, essentially, crackheads who can afford crack are otay?

A billionaire blaming unions. That's new and exciting.

Does anyone else think we sure have a lot of billionaires now.

Used to be you could actually name them.

Suprised he didn't hire some goons to rough him up.
 
2012-11-22 10:11:59 PM
The guy has enough money that his descendants will never have to work. Just imagine what this guy's great grandsons are going to do to your great grand kids when they don't move fast enough.

the way things have been going, my guess is that within that time frame, a whole lot of 10 digit trustafarians are gonna get an absolute holocaust level wake up call.

To be fair, if he had been one of the little people he would have just gone to jail.
 
2012-11-22 10:19:32 PM
I'm ok with this- it's exactly what would have happened if I pulled a gun on him.

/Anyone read the part about how he was with Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY), when this happened? Cough cough?
 
2012-11-22 10:20:18 PM
The "it was unloaded" argument is completely irrelevant. I don't know why people insist on using it.

How is the person that you are pointing it at supposed to know its unloaded? You are pointing it to threaten them. Its not a threat if they know its unloaded. You may as well point your hand in the shape of a gun at them.

He was wearing a full Elizabethen dandy suit. And a fedora.

Well, at least he wasn't some homeless deaf guy walking away from the cops with a pocket knife. That's a whole magazine in the back and a solid "clean shoot" death sentence, there.

The etch a sketch is gonna get shaken because there's nothing else TO do with it. Power mad wealthy people have been sh*tting where everybody eats for too long and, yeah, history has shown us that that never ends well. Let's hope the self important wealthy pull their heads out of their asses before history eats them and removes it from their collective bodies altogether.

/also serious and more than a bit concerned

No matter how much money he has, he's still a douchebag.
 
2012-11-22 10:41:20 PM
And that's what people don't get about money. It doesn't make you a better person for having it. It a you does allow you to use it in a way that might MAKE you a better person, by actually using it for the only thing it's actually good for - moving around and facilitating commerce. The second you use it as a bludgeon or a slaver's whip, you blew it and you suck and traded your window seat in the gene pool for some IOUs.

FTA:

"His union rep called the police and said I pulled a gun on him. I never pulled it out. I have no idea how he knew I had a gun."

You know, those two statements just don't add up.
