    OH MY GOD...

    Did you people even listen to the interview or understand what dood was saying? He was talking about the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. He wasnt bemoaning the loss of luxury cars or country club memberships, he was comparing fiscally responsible citizens and their personal reactions to a crisis vs the federal government and ITS response to a crisis. WHEN IN DEBT you dont buy a new luxury vehicle, you sell your luxury vehicle and buy a more affordable vehicle.

    I swear...some of you so willingly run head first into walls. Dont forget your ****ing helmets.

    That was pretty specific. ANYONE that responded to the idiocy presented in the OP without actually bothering to know what they were posting about. Now...since you were responding to one such individual, I dont know if that cant DIRECTLY apply to you. You will know better than I will. Check your head for a big-ass goose egg.

    And stop humping turtles!!! You might get salmonella!!!

    I'm a member of the country club. I played a 4 hr. country gig, complete with fiddle and pedal steel guitar, last Saturday night at a honky-tonk roadhouse.

    That does count, doesn't it?

    This is an absolutely baseless absurd claim.

    Again, no worries on them; but don't belong to an economically exclusive group and bitch about others being elitist. Don't live in a gated community and call others elitist. Don't fly on private jets and call others elitist. You may begin to do so when you admit that you are an elitist yourself.
    Is it your assertion that Rand Paul accuses others of being "elitists" simply because they are members of a Country Club, live in gated communities and fly in private jets?

    Rand Paul is a very intelligent man and his judgement of exactly what constitutes an "elitist" is definitely not based on these trivial standards you have been so foolishly convinced of.

    Rand Paul was not born into wealth and privilege, but was the son of a doctor who himself became a doctor and the Bowling Green Ky Country Club he is a member of is extremely modest by "elitist" standards.

    Medical career

    Paul has held a state-issued medical license since moving to Bowling Green in 1993. He received his first job from Dr. John Downing of Downing McPeak Vision Centers, which brought him to Bowling Green after completing his residency. Paul worked for Downing for about five years before parting ways. Afterwards, he went to work at the Graves-Gilbert Clinic, a private medical group in Bowling Green, for 10 years before creating his own practice in a converted one-story house across the street from Downing's office. After his election to the U.S. Senate, Paul merged his practice with Downing's medical practice. Paul has had two malpractice lawsuits filed against him since 1993. Paul was cleared in one case and the other was settled for $50,000. Regardless, his medical work has been praised by Downing and Paul has medical privileges at two Bowling Green hospitals. Paul specializes in cataract and glaucoma surgeries, LASIK procedures, and corneal transplants.

    As a member of the Bowling Green Noon Lions Club, Paul founded the Southern Kentucky Lions Eye Clinic to help provide eye surgery and exams for those who cannot afford to pay. He is a regular presenter at the annual Men's Health and Safety Day conference held by The Medical Center of Bowling Green since 1998. In 1999 Paul founded the Non-profit organization National Board of Ophthalmology (NBO).
