Go to Your Quiet Room! (The 99% Should Be Seen and Not Heard)

January 11th, 2012

Inspired by Mitt Romney’s suggestion that income inequality is an issue best not discussed publicly.

 

“Are there no fair questions about the distribution of wealth without it being seen as envy, though?” – Matt Lauer

 

“You know I think it’s fine to talk about those things in quiet rooms in discussions about tax policy and the like. But the president has made this part of his campaign rally. Everywhere he goes we hear him talking about millionaires and billionaires and executives and Wall Street. It’s a very envy-oriented, attack-oriented approach.” — Mitt

 

Mitt says income inequality should only be discussed in a quiet room,

Which even the remote possibility of fairness would doom.

 

It makes sense to keep quiet about things you don’t want people to think about,

Especially things it’s politically damaging for them to make a stink about.

 

But telling the 99% to go to their quiet room is absurd–

After all, we’re not children to be seen and not heard.
