    I'm not asking you to employ me, I'm asking you to employ the 9.1% unemployed.

    Because I'm not in the top 1% turtle, how am I supposed to pay to hire people? In fact, if you do have the means to hire unemployed people and you instead put your money away, I don't see how you can't call yourself greedy.

    You are making a bigger fool of yourself. I don't have the means to hire unemployed people, I have all the employees I need and I am not willing to engage in doing something different just to make someone like you feel good

    Your attitude suggests you will never be in the top one percent though.

    So, wait a minute....anyone who has a rainy day fund, a retirement fund/plan, or some other form of excess(beyond the need of everyday life) of capitol is now greedy?

    I'll keep saying this until someone addresses it. EVERYONE, every single person in this country, has the right to self employment. Meaning, everyone has a constitutional right to a job.

    So tell me @ f/16 with 135 millimeter macro lens on a Pentax 67 camera body what is the depth of field?

    I know, its been years since I was a serious photographer. I did lots of sports stuff. If the light was good I went for a narrow f stop since I got better depth of field. However photographing say McEnroe serving I might go for a wide open one to only have him clear and blur the fans or stadium behind him. Of course if the light was crappy (I was normally shooting 400 speed B/W with Cannon lens and bodies) I might be forced to use a open aperture because the shutter speed was more important with fast moving athletes.
