I must be doing it wrong. After the last time I was a "play-date consultant" I only ended up getting 40c an hour in the license plate shop.

Um, lawyers may charge the client $400+ dollars per hour. Most of that money goes straight to court fees, private court reporters, copy guys, rent, paychecks for secretaries, local hookers . . .

m00: Are you trolling or what?

Your post was the equivalent of claiming not to be racist, using a qualifying 'but', and then telling a racist joke.

Your post was the equivalent of claiming to condemn terorrism, using a qualifying 'but', and then providing a full justification for the motivations of a suicide bomber.

Your post was the equivalent of stating X, using a qualifying 'but', and then going full !X.

I'm not against the rich, but I am against people gaining their wealth by dishonest or anti-capitalist means. Since this is New York, we're probably talking about investment bankers. If it were DC, it would be government contractors.

So I am saying if these parasites don't stop spending their vast wealth in asinine ways there's going to be some social accountability down the line when the proles get fed up enough to start voting in serious wealth re-distributors. Because these people didn't get rich by writing an awesome app or making an awesome movie or buying a chain of laundromats. They got rich by making risky bets with other people's money, failing, and getting bailed out with those same people's tax dollars (who already lost everything). If these "posh Manhattanites" are spending $400 for this nonsense, then clearly the only lesson they learned from the banking/mortgage crisis is that they are a government-protected privileged class.

I would say this is silly, but then I thought about how babies grow up observing their parents interact more with their phones than with other humans and suddenly it started to make sense.
