Never The Twain Shall Meet

Worth reading: Americans 'disgusted' with debt ceiling fight; wealth gap between whites, minorities widens

deathby2 appears to believe that the gap between "rich" and "poor" is analogous to the divide between Brahmins and Dalit within the Hindu caste system. Those born poor cannot hope to rise from the squalor of their upbringing; those born rich are magically protected by lion-mounted goddesses. What's worse, the poor are still burdened by the gold standard, leaving them with a fixed pool of available funds. The rich have no such limitations.

So what I want to know is how I can get my hands on some of this "rich people money." Does it look different, or feel different? Or is it one of those things that you can't describe, but you know it when you find it? Has deathby2 ever seen any?

On a side note, deathby2's comment may be linked to the perennial complaint that white women aren't having enough white babies, but it's difficult to say exactly how.
