It seems like every couple of days now, the hidden elite of ATS, the 1%ers, the billionaires of ATS, are becoming brave enough to finally reveal themselves to us common folk.

Now let's face facts - these brave people have a completely different set of problems and political goals than us little people, therefor maybe it's time we give them a sub-forum of their own. A place where they can really be themselves and not worry about troubling their job creating minds with the concerns of the lower classes.
After all, we do need them to be at their peak so when they DO decide to create some jobs, they don't just ship them over to China or the Philippines.

Obviously we'd need to create some sort of wealth verification system - it would be much too easy for some little person to simply lie and say they were rich (the details of this are clearly above my pay grade, and should sjurely be worked out by a true job creator). Think of it like a sort of executive wash room. If everyone had a key, it sure would get crowded quickly - so there would need to be some sort of verification.

We need to make sure they know how grateful we are to them for everything they may do in the future, and really - what better way that to give them their own little corner of ATS?

Well, it really wasn't a rant even.

More of a provocation really.

Seriously, if you come into my house and bad mouth me with no proof, I’m throwing your butt out the door.

Be happy that they just moved the post and didn't ban you. Most websites would do that in a heartbeat and delete your presence as if you never existed.

You see a provocation, I see a valid and satirical observation.

Are you implying that ATS and the US Political Madness forum are "the houses" of our resident billionaires? I should be happy I wasn't banned for making a simple observation? HAH! Satire is still well covered under the 1st Amendment, something I'd hoped we all shared a love for.

The
, don't make it satirical. Read your original OP as if you hadn't wrote it and you'll see were I'm coming from.

It does look kind of as if you are calling the owners and Admin of ATS out as rich bigwigs.

You might not have meant it that way, but that is how it came across to me. Sometimes the original message and intent get muddled here on the interwebs. I see it all the time.

For example:
As for wealth verification system, I’m down with that, as well as your real name, address, Phone number, credit score…etc. I’ll provide mine when it is mandatory.


I look at the last sentence and people can interpet it all sorts of ways, though I meant it as sarcastic humor.

But thanks for the clarification.
