Some of the ruling families: The Mellons, Rockefellers, Morgans, Harrimans and lesser stooges such as the Bushes and Kennedys, as well as the old Brahmin families of Boston such as the Perkinses, Forbeses, etc. Basically these families constitute the northeastern liberal establishment. They belong to both political parties, although in effect they always seem to be socially liberal and economically libertarian. Many are limousine liberals who conceal their numerous crimes with a thin veneer of social justice talk.
The more I know of the Kennedy's, the less I like them. They are a one track mind when it comes to Politics--Liberal.
I mention the Kennedy's because I used to admire them, growing up.
Are the Forbes, the same ones as the Magazine?
