When thinking about the millionaire socialists in Congress, the open-borders supporters who live in gated communities, the affirmative action boosters from political dynasties, those who express concern for the poor by flying to conferences in the Swiss Alps, those who express concern for the environment by flying to Java or decrying the excesses of Big Oil in the mansion of a Getty, those who consider no income legitimate unless it is theirs by inheritance, marriage, or bribery (whether 'speaking fees', 'consulting fees', or 'book advances'), those who say my patriotism is the refuge of a scoundrel while their own is only expressed as 'dissent' and is therefore the highest form -

anyone who thinks about these people without at least considering battery isn't angry enough.
