Another Whiner Rich Guy

What a disappointment.  I’ve been a Phil Mickelson fan for years; I enjoy his aggressive approach to golf and the way he treats fans at tournaments.  But now he’s complaining –essentially– that he makes too much money. Poor Phil! He only managed about $18 million after taxes last year.  Playing golf!  While staying at the most luxurious places on earth, traveling in his yacht and private jets.  And he’s whining that he has to pay too much in taxes.  He may have to sell his $8 million California home and move to some poverty-ridden place like Florida.  What a crushing burden.  Think of the cost of sailing the yacht through the Panama Canal.  Come to think of it, maybe Phil should just stay in Panama.
