The Onion: Are America's Rich Falling Behind The Super-Rich?

This video includes lines like:

The average investment banker is only able to afford one boat.

If the rich were just a little bit more motivated they wouldn't be such a drain on society.

Our pool didn't have a waterfall in it.

We had to share tennis courts with other families.


In The Know: Are America's Rich Falling Behind The Super-Rich?

I'm sure you share my concern about this trend.

Regular ParaPundit readers know I'm interested in globalization, rising inequality, and the use of immigrants to do domestic work at low salaries. How about people outsourcing their child care to India or Sri Lanka?


Report: Many U.S. Parents Outsourcing Child Care Overseas

Too complex for your mind to think about? How about going back to the stone age? Or at least back to 2002? Back when cell phones were just cell phones, not MP3 players and other gadgets (and I've yet to use my cellphone as a camera or MP3 player btw).

I have added The Onion to my video podcasts and have been very pleased.

The quality is very very good and I get some good chuckles. It is one of the best video podcasts I have (although hubble is very good as well).

Randall,

I thought you didn't have a cellphone! So much for living the Rousseauian myth you perpetuate on your blog, you Luddite!
