Oprah Winfrey, one of the most successful entrepreneurs of our time, is completely disconnected from reality. She states in an interview that the most tortuous moments come when she has to sign checks to the IRS. Yet, she helped to elect one of the biggest tax and spenders in American history. What is up with that!
She further states that she has empathy for those who have lost their jobs; and are living from paycheck to paycheck. Yet, she can’t empathize with the small business owners who are being strangled by onerous federal laws. These are the same business owners who provide the jobs and the paychecks to those she feels so compassionate about.
Now for the kicker! Oprah has donated millions of dollars to charity. If she has to have shots of tequila now when writing those checks to the feds, I wonder what her response will be when she sees the IRS vultures hovering around her death bed.
