"Every now and then, someone comes along and says something that makes everything clear.  Elizabeth Warren just did that, and the world is taking notice."

"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there -- good for you."

"But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory..."

"Now look. You built a factory, and it turned into something terrific or a great idea -- God bless! Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a{nother} hunk of that and pay it forward for the next kid who comes along."

Just sayin'

Priceless Seagrass baskets
And an "abstract."  Sort of!
