Bloomberg Labels Rex Sinquefield an "Oligarch"

I'm the king of my world! Woo-hoo! Yee-haw! Yes! Yes! Yes!
Rex Sinquefield has been called a lot of things -- hall-of-fame athlete, kook, terrorist, sugar daddy, manipulator and billionaire (the latter being one of the few labels he's publicly denied), but we'd never heard of this one: "oligarch."

Something about it sounds so sinister. So Russian. So worthy of a man cruising around on a yacht like this one that we never thought of applying it to our very own Rex.

Leave it to Bloomberg (of all media outlets!) to tell it like is. In a profile this month of the man who has spent tens of millions of dollars trying to do away with local and state income taxes in Missouri, the financial wire-service writes:
"While he maintains he isn't a billionaire and won't divulge his net worth, he is using his wealth to go over the heads of the political establishment. He is a new American oligarch, appealing directly to voters for help in reshaping his home state to fit his economic beliefs."

And I thought you had to be in government to be an oligarch.

"Something about it sounds so sinister. So Russian."

Russians are sinister? Maybe if the author had said: "Something about it sounds so sinister. So jewish." I would agree otherwise it's time to lay off nations and people that the jews don't like because in fact most of the world agrees jews are the real gangsters and war profiteers.

No, when he is talking about shortcomings he is speaking of yours. Namely the fact that live in a bedbug and crab infested trailer home in the Meramec's flood plain and the fact that you have probably spent half of your smelly ass life getting ass fucked in prison. The fact that you probably don't have a job combined with the cool 'born to lose' tattoo on you knuckles is just icing on a really stupid cake.

What shortcomings? You mean the several wars to expand Israel's influence and control in the Middle East? Those the shortcomings. Recognition of Israel as a "Jews only state"? That shortcoming? Expand on your drooling Kwan missives for us.
