How about some real MLK for these fatheads?

"I understand that you have an economic system in America known as Capitalism. Through this economic system you have been able to do wonders. You have become the richest nation in the world, and you have built up the greatest system of production that history has ever known. All of this is marvelous, but Americans, there is the danger that you will misuse your Capitalism. I still contend that money can be the root of all evil. It can cause one to live a life of gross materialism. I am afraid that many among you are more concerned about making a living than making a life. You are prone to judge the success of your profession by the index of your salary and the size of the wheel base on your automobile, rather than the quality of your service to humanity." - from King's "Paul's Letter To American Christians", 1956

In related news, Mohandas Gandhi, were he alive today, would favor lower taxation rates for corporations and the wealthy and disapprove of Michelle Obama's campaign against childhood obesity. He would be a conservative, an evangelical Christian, and a close buddy of Eriik Erikson, Rush Limbaugh, and Donald Trump.
