Hanger: Wise Investment
By Chris Elliott


March 05, 2009

Nothing undermines an argument more than outrageous claims: "There are no patriots among the rich; just whores." Like many clever phrases, this is more amusing than accurate.

Are all successful capitalists whores? What's the cut-off for rich? What are the attributes of a patriot? Bill Gates and his wife give millions to charity. Are they whores? President Obama would be considered rich by most Americans. Is he a whore?
