    Well, yeah. But it plays well to her economically illiterate base.

    While U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sleeps in her $5 million mansion in Cambridge, and got paid $350,000 to teach just one class at Harvard, she had the audacity to say in an interview with Jon Stewart this week that “the system is rigged to benefit the rich.”

    Yes, Sen. Warren, that would be you. Under a free-market, capitalist system, you became a U.S. senator and multimillionaire whose own net worth hovers around $14.5 million, according to personal financial disclosure reports filed in 2011.

    Newsflash for Warren: With that kind of cash, you are a one-percenter! That very demographic you vilified and campaigned against.

    Yet liberal hypocrites, like Warren and countless fellow phonies in Hollywood, want to denigrate a capitalist system — and make America a socialist country after they personally benefited from a free-market system. Now once Warren and Hollywood hypocrites are living lavishly in their ivory towers, they preach about “income inequality” and the “little guys.”

    Once again coming from a Democrat, and in this case a Socialist verging on Communist Democrat.

    But the fact that she is in the top 1% doesn't bother the liberals here at all because she espouses policies that aim to further tax "the rich" whom the liberals here believe earned their wealth at the expense of someone else.

    This is because most RJ liberals believe that there is a fixed amount of wealth to be had - they have no clue that wealth can be created and destroyed.

    So a question for the RJ liberals: Who did Elizabeth Warren steal her wealth from? The University janitor? The History professor?





    Much like Paul Krugman... it's actually kind of funny how some liberal extremists are gushing over her.

    Heh - even more funny... Elizabeth Warren, supposed friend to the poor and downtrodden, champion of the minimum wage, pays her interns *nothing* lol.

    So I was curious so did a quick google... as it turns out it gets even better:

    Glenn Beck's The Blaze quoting from the Boston Herald:
    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/06/02/harsh-foreclosure-critic-elizabeth-warren-reportedly-made-a-fortune-flipping-foreclosed-homes/

    Elizabeth Warren, who has railed against predatory banks and heartless foreclosures, took part in about a dozen Oklahoma real estate deals that netted her and her family hefty profits through maneuvers such as “flipping” properties, records show.

    A Herald review has found that the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate rapidly bought and sold homes herself, loaned money at high interest rates to relatives and purchased foreclosed properties at bargain prices.

    Am actually hoping she runs in 2016. This way the ideas the Democrats will be pushing will be as old (or rather, much older) than their candidates.

    Chabot: After two years, no answers from Elizabeth Warren on roots

    Except she and her acolytes claim she is speaking truth to power, when she's little more than a hypocrite - that's the amusing bit.

    I have no problems with flipping houses, but to do so, buying houses at cutrate prices from the government no less (as she did) and to lend at high interest rates to others, makes her somewhat more unique (but a very wealthy woman).

    But fwiw, I actually think that the system had been getting better in terms of equalizing the playing field. The way the connected rig the system is through regulations... and unfortunately, have you looked at the stats on how much worse the US tax code and regulations have gotten in the last decade?

    Socialism and communism are virtually the same. You can't verge from one to the next. Socialism is the transitionary stage to Communism, they're fundamentally the same ideology.

    Anyway, I'll stop being a pedantic twat now. Carry on discussing the 99 vs the 1%.......
