In America, being Jewish pays handsomely

Almost 35% of the wealthiest Americans are Jewish, according to this count of the Forbes 400 by JTA. With Jews comprising under 2%of the country, that’s not a bad showing. Or perhaps a good racket.

No wonder 20% percent of Democrats in the Senate are Jewish. Although some Jews might look at that figure and say they are being discriminated against…35% of the entire Senate should be Jewish.

This raises an interesting question: when Jews comprise 100% of the Forbes 400, can America finally drop the pretense of being a democratic republic and officially declare itself a Jewish oligarchy? -- By Chris Moore
