    I don’t understand the hatred (if that’s what it is, and not satire). Sure, it’s easier to hate people that we turn into two-dimensional caricatures, but at the end, aren’t we all humans? Wouldn’t it be better to empathize with your fellow man rather than demonize them?

    So, because they were successful enough to afford good clothes and laptops, they can’t be taken seriously? I’m not sure I follow that metric. If they dressed poorly, they’d be bums. But they have spending capital, so somehow their political views are invalid?
    Silly.
    Also, Wall Street needs to change. Just ask all your parents who lost their pensions.

    Good clothes are cheap. Designer clothes are decadent.

    You heard it from Fink first. Socialism is bad, but designer clothes invalidate your opinions.

    Chet Manley

    If you claim to be against capitalism, yeah, designer clothes do invalidate your opinion.
