Golfer Phil Mickelson Is a Horrible Human Being

PGA star golfer Phil Mickelson is bitching about taxes. I mean really bitching. (More here.)

Phil Mickelson has a net worth of about $180 million. (Update, May 2016: That link now gives his worth as about $295 million. Update, August 2018: $365 million.)

Phil Mickelson owns a $60 million gulfstream jet.

If Phil Mickelson were taxed 95% on his $180 million dollars, he would still have $9 million.

Or $225,000 every year for the next 40 years. More than 97% of all Americans right now. And mountains more than the tens of millions who work their asses of and still worry about feeding the kids - or getting them health insurance. That's if he were taxed 95% on all his money.

Phil Mickelson - you suck. My God, you suck.

P.S. I love the end of that interview: "[no response]". Yeah, I bet not.


Update: Read the exciting Part II of how Phil Mickelson is a horrible human being right over here. And Part III!

Update II, May 20, 2016: Yow, Mickelson's greed knows no bounds. Why he's not being charged with criminal offenses for making $931,000 on an insider trading scheme is anyone's guess. More here.
