Progressive Kristallnacht. Prominent venture capitalist Tom Perkins on critics of extreme economic inequality. "Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendant 'progressive' radicalism unthinkable now?" Yes, it's just like Nazi Germany again, with hashtag pogroms against the 1%. #OccupyWallStreet. #FightPoverty. Tap-tap-tap! Paramilitary Tweeter. Some newpapers have hurled words at their fragile-as-glass egos. My head feels like a synagogue in 1938 Berlin. S.S. Mineallmine. Many have been confined to cavernous homes in exclusive concentration camps. I've been left to die in this class chamber.

Slowpoke. Perhaps you've seen this email that's been floating around the internet. To all the kids who survived the 1930s-70s: We slept in cribs covered in lead paint … We rode our bikes without helmets … We rode in cars without seat belts, booster seats, or airbags ... Yet these generations produced some of the greatest risk-takers and inventors ever! If you are one of them, CONGRATULATIONS! Share this with others who grew up before the LAWYERS and GOVERNMENT regulated so much of our lives. YEAH! Kids today are sissies! We at Slowpoke would like to add these examples. As a kid, my grandma worked 23 hour days in the knicker factory and slept in a bed made of dung. I'm sure she would have HATED the way the guv'mint tells us what to do now! I've had four kids thrown from a moving vehicle! I've had five! Damn, you win! If there were no speed limit, I'da had six by now! We only give Timmy lead-painted toys from China. They build character. He just loves to suck on his truck. Wal-Mart.
