I was thinking the exact same thing when I opened the thread. Dude is either seriously Republican and loves to brag about his financial superiority, or its a dumb kid or old loser trying to make friends by seeming important.
Odd, because most of the ones I encounter that like bragging about their wealth, education, size of their house, etc. tend to be the ones who rail against
that group you mentioned with quite a bit of vehemenance. On political blogs at least. I tend to trend towards "dumb kid" but have run into supposed adults who behave rather immaturely. Perhaps dumb kids who never truly grew up?
