Here’s a letter to the editor at TCPalm which covers Florida’s Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches, an area where more than a few wealthy one percenters go to sit out both winter and the rest of us.

If this letter is satire (and most likely, it is) then, mazel tov, fake Floridian one percenter. Nicely played. If not, then it’s a view into the abyss. You decide:

Stop whining, you 99 percent. We 1 percent have realized the American Dream: to own a home(s), a car(s), a boat(s) and a plane. (We don’t like to fly commercial airlines.) …

Paying off members of Congress is not cheap. We have sacrificed millions of dollars to dominate their agenda…

We can finally cement our capitalist oligarchy by eliminating such wasteful programs as Social Security, welfare and Medicare.

We would especially like to thank the U.S. Supreme Court for the Citizens United ruling that guarantees our continued domination of society.

(P.S. The comments section following this letter is a hoot , too.)
