I saw my district rep's wife driving around in her Lexus earlier today. He and she are Republicans. They have two daughters. Neither of them is in the military.
Those are all just status cars, helping the people who drive them feel that they are some kind of American royalty.
True, I think they have some added safety features that the cars we peasants drive don't have. People like this would demand that they get access to the lifeboats first, I'm sure.
I call people like that Hyacinth Buckets
, after the Brit Com character in the show Keeping Up Appearances.
Hyacinth wants everybody to think she's a member of the aristocracy.
