The San Francisco Mime Troupe continues its 53rd season with For the Greater Good, or The Last Election. Pity the poor 1 per cent. Abused in that sliver of press they don’t own, condemned in the streets by a rabble who don’t appreciate the benefits of being trickled down upon, and raked over the coals by the few politicians who aren’t lined up to kiss their wealth and power. Michael Gene Sullivan directs this musical satire about “true” American values. Live music half hour before showtime.

“Obama wants to take my money and give it to do-nothing animals,”

[snip] "
It’s strange to imagine someone like Greene, who counts Mike Tyson as a close friend, and who has a streak that caused the L.A. party girls to refer to him as “Mean Jeff Greene,” feeling vulnerable.

It’s hard to think of any superrich person as vulnerable, just as it’s hard to think that a bear with outstretched claws and giant teeth is more afraid than you are. But over the past few months, it’s become clear that rich people are very, very afraid. Sometimes it feels like this was the main accomplishment of Occupy Wall Street: a whole lot of tightened sphincters.

It’s not a stretch to say many residents of Park Avenue harbor vivid fears of a populist revolt like the one seen in The Dark Knight Rises, in which they cower miserably under their sideboards while ragged hordes plunder the silver.

“This is my fear, and it’s a real, legitimate fear,” Greene says, revving up the engine. “You have this huge, huge class of people who are impoverished. If we keep doing what we’re doing, we will build a class of poor people that will take over this country, and the country will not look like what it does today. It will be a different economy, rights, all that stuff will be different.”

More often than not, fears like these manifest as loathing for the current administration, as evidenced by the recent wave of Romney fund-raisers in the Hamptons. “Obama wants to take my money and give it to do-nothing animals,” one matron blurted at a recent party at the Pierre for Dick Morris’s Screwed!, the latest entry into a growing pile of socioeconomic snuff porn geared toward this audience.

Eat the rich... They're oh so tender and well marbled with fat because they haven't done a hard day's labor in their lives.


“You have this huge, huge class of people who are impoverished. If we keep doing what we’re doing, we will build a class of poor people that will take over this country, and the country will not look like what it does today. It will be a different economy, rights, all that stuff will be different.”


A 411 to Mean Jeff Greene... Not POOR. "Simple living and decentralized", with LOTS of leisure time put to good use planning your expropriation.
