the 1%…the one

This movie reminds me of my family.

Nah….I’m kidding.

It would be a short family meeting if we met to discuss our finances.

I don’t have a pile of money that I could hold court over my family and discuss. I couldn’t have a meeting where I discussed our giant piles of money….or how to keep it all.

My family would want to watch Spongebob instead.

I guess that it’s good that we don’t have to treat “keeping what we have” as an occupation.

Who would have the time to do that?

Rich people?

I’ve been kind of gentle towards the “one percenters”…..thinking that it was something to shoot for….that it might be nice to be some weird “rags to riches”…..or maybe “moderate privilege” to “extreme privilege”…. success story.

That’s kind of naive, really.

The deck is kind of stacked….or something.

When you watch something like this, you realize that there are limits to what we can do financially. This is a club that’s hard to get into.

I’d like to believe in limitless opportunity….and in some ways, I still do….but there are things that are set up to limit us from jumping into the “super rich” category.

I don’t want to make some deal with the Devil to do it, anyway.

Awwwww…..what the heck? Who am I trying to fool?

It would be good to have some money.

Maybe be in the upper 57%?

That might be interesting.

Norwegian rap….maybe that’s the way to build a fortune?
