They'll just waste it on buying houses that we'll eventually get anyway when we foreclose on them in the next recession!" Mrs. Bueford's butler at this point leaned over to whisper to her that if the people couldn't own anything then that would be like pure Communism in which the State owns everything, an action for which Mrs. Bueford promptly fired him. "Rude little ant! Having the nerve to compare me to a Communist!" she stated.

He says that if we try to stop him he will suck it all out and suffocate us! What can we do?"
