Local boy made good Phil Mickelson made some off-hand comments (which he has since taken a mulligan on) about how The Socialism is taking all of his money and probably blowing it on food for The Poors instead of worthwhile things like, for example, the city owned municipal course where he honed his skills as a young lad. Now he is going to have to make “drastic changes” like Going Galt or maybe having to sneak onto Mission Bay Golf Course late at night like we used to do and wading in the water hazard looking for golf balls.

One of the deepest divides in our alarmingly escalating Class War is one of mutual misunderstanding between the two sides about what money is for: The Job Creators can’t comprehend why the Lower Orders should have such fripperies as food, housing, and medical care (or worse, cell phones and TV’s), while those being steadily ground into mush under their well-shod heels can’t understand why people with enough money to buy their own states don’t at least buy states where the weather is better.
