Wanna know how to be one of America’s wealthy elite? Be a piece of shit/traitor to your own country. [From Wikipedia] During the American Civil War, JP Morgan was approached to finance the purchase of antiquated rifles being sold by the army for $3.50 each. Morgan’s partner re-machined them and sold the rifles back to the army for $33 each. These guns were defective and were known to blow the thumbs off of those who used them. The sale became a scandal and the government refused to pay for their own defective weapons resold to them at an exorbitant markup. Morgan sued the government twice to collect on his contract. Morgan himself, like many wealthy persons, avoided military service by paying $300 for a substitute.
