A conservative golfer friend of mine sent this notice to me and asked that I pass on his concern.
I am a member of golf’s 99%. I play golf, but have not yet made it to the professional level! I have played the game for over 40 years, but have not really put in the practice time and study to be the best. I also probably do not have the skills to really get there either.
However, I now feel that I should be paid by the successful professionals for trying. It isn’t fair that those players who have worked harder, have studied the game, have better equipment and are stronger and more skilled should make all that money. Oh sure, they have their charities that they give millions of dollars to, but I am sure that they write all that off on their tax returns to reduce paying their fair share. Is that fair?
They should pay for my golf, buy me new equipment and pay me some of their winnings. The whole system should be changed to accommodate people like me!
Let’s occupy a golf course and demand that those who are better at what they do pay for us who aren’t as good. Whining should get us something, like media attention and sympathy from liberals!
Now it seems like he was already well into the 19th hole when he wrote this one?
Do you agree with his premise?
