"They" are better than you

by Mr. Quarter

David Brooks, the New York Times columnist emitomizes the privileged thinking of the "educated elites" in this country that resent that the rest of us have been granted the right to vote and speak our mind. More accurately, he is among those that think that they are entitled to dictate to the balance of America how we should live and what is good for us.

Witness his article here where he laments that "The educated class believes in global warming, so public skepticism about global warming is on the rise. The educated class supports abortion rights, so public opinion is shifting against them. The educated class supports gun control, so opposition to gun control is mounting." He continues his whining about the growing popularity of the tea party movement saying, "The tea party movement is a large, fractious confederation of Americans who are defined by what they are against. They are against the concentrated power of the educated class. They believe big government, big business, big media and the affluent professionals are merging to form self-serving oligarchy "

Poor David Brooks. How frustrating it must be stuck there in NYC among all the other intellectuals and educated elite while the little people try and shape the country for those that produce.
