Oh My God Rich People

These fucking people. Seriously.

This is an entire article about how much rich people in California are whining about water rationing:

Rich Californians balk at limits: ‘We’re not all equal when it comes to water’

The shit these people say, dear lord. How oblivious can you be?

People “should not be forced to live on property with brown lawns, golf on brown courses or apologize for wanting their gardens to be beautiful,” Yuhas fumed recently on social media.
... 
"I think we’re being overly penalized, and we’re certainly being overly scrutinized by the world,” said Gay Butler, an interior designer out for a trail ride on her show horse, Bear.
“It angers me because people aren’t looking at the overall picture,” Butler said. “What are we supposed to do, just have dirt around our house on four acres?”
... 
“I call it the war on suburbia,” said Brett Barbre, who lives in the Orange County community of Yorba City, another exceptionally wealthy Zip code.
... 
He is fond of referring to his watering hose with Charlton Heston’s famous quote about guns: “They’ll have to pry it from my cold, dead hands.”
“California used to be the land of opportunity and freedom,” Barbre said. “It’s slowly becoming the land of one group telling everybody else how they think everybody should live their lives.”
... 
Yuhas, who hosts a conservative talk-radio show, abhors the culture of “drought-shaming” that has developed here since the drought began four years ago, especially the aerial shots of lavish lawns targeted for derision on the local TV news.
... 
“When we bought, we didn’t plan on getting a place that looks like we’re living in an African savanna.” 
... 
“You could put 20 houses on my property, and they’d have families of at least four. In my house, there is only two of us,” Butler said. So “they’d be using a hell of a lot more water than we’re using.” 

I just... you can't... you aren't more important than... how can you... you can live on smaller...

YOU HAVE LESS THAN A YEAR OF WATER LEFT HOW ARE YOU NOT GETTING THIS OH MY GOD.

These people literally think their "right" to have entirely unnecessary green lawns is more important than the right of the rest of us peasants to have access to clean water, which is necessary for us to live. And it baffles them that anyone would think otherwise.

I've been accused before of being prejudiced against rich people. Um, yeah? Have you listened to them talk???

They will let the world and all people poorer than them die to maintain their luxury, and they don't give half a fuck. I honestly don't know why we haven't risen up and taken all that wealth back. Loot their fucking mansions and force them to empty their offshore accounts at gunpoint. Then throw them on rafts and set them adrift in the ocean. Fuck 'em.
