This is where so-called Progressives, and I use that term loosely for a good reason, as I would call race car drivers athletes, especially when the person making fun of billionaires just happens to be worth 50 to 100 million dollars. Bill Maher didn’t get rich by being a Socialist but by working hard and having a skill, talent, and mind that have made him so successful that he could retire today in his late fifties and probably never work again. He didn’t get rich by government giving him most of the services and money he needed to be successful.

I can understand people having a problem with the extremely rich having so much compared with the people who are very to extremely poor. But the answer should be about empowering people at the very bottom, close to the bottom, or barely in the middle so they can be successful and not worry about how they will cover their basic necessities, let alone bills, simple things like paying for dinner and so forth instead of putting down people for being successful. You become successful through marketable talents and skills.

Someone worth 50 to 100 million dollars pouncing on billionaires is like compulsive liars deriding spin doctors for being dishonest or alcoholics deriding narcotic addicts. The hypocrisy is as obvious as knowing water is wet, not to put your finger in a moving fan, or not to jump in front of a moving truck, etc.  A blind person could see that if you make an argument like that, perhaps Bill should admit he makes too much money and should either give a lot of it back or donate all of it to charity or to Uncle Sam.
