I joined the military at age 17. Went to college at 21. Started a family at 30. After 16 years of working for a plumbing company I started my own. My wife and I worked very hard to get ahead. We both donate large sums to various charities. According to a few commentors below, we are evil. Should we have stayed poor and then whined about it? If you whiners won the lottery would you refuse the winnings? If you ranters found yourselves major recipients of endowments or beneficiaries of a will would you say"Keep it, I like being poor"? Last question: Does your hypocrisy know any bounds? Don't blame the wealthy for living well. We don't blame you for being poor and hope that you can make a decent living and be happy.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves. "

3- Obama et al go around the country and on Letterman last night saying that all they need to do is get a little more from the rich, cut back a little on spending and his "balanced approach" will fix the debt crisis.
4- So, for argument's sake, let's take ALL of the total net worth from the top 1 million highest income earners. That amount wouldn't cover a single year of Obama's budget 5Tril budget.
5- But, let's argue that it would. What does Obama propose to do in the second year? Take it from you, that's who!
Still don't understand? Then please don't vote.
$1.7 Trillion, so we could take EVERYTHING these 400 richest have and fund our Government for half a year!
Yea, raising taxes will sure cure our $16 Tillion debt, and the $3 Trillion a year this administration spends.................
Look at all those liberals and they say the Republicans are for the rich. LOL!
