Rich ruling class becomes our country's aristocracy

To the Editor:

Say folks, you know why we founded this country.

So we could get away from King George and the English Church plus the Catholic Church of Europe. We founded this United States so we would have freedom from the aristocracy of Europe and give ourselves more happiness.

Now we have our own aristocracy called the Corporate Oligarchy of our rich ruling class. Billionaires and millionaires just like the old aristocracy of Europe who think they own the United States, the whole world and the whole universe.

Bill Gates is one of these snobby, superior acting intelligentsia. All the workers who work at Microsoft are a bunch of snobby old yuppies that think the rest of us are peasants.

Our son-in-law works for this snobby Bill Gates at Microsoft, so I and Yvonne have never seen our grandchildren, ever.

So as far as we are concerned, Bill Gates has kidnapped our grandchildren and holds them hostage to our happiness.
