Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Most losers support taxes on those who do better than them
doesn't make that right
that is why we need a tax system where the parasites cannot vote up the rates on the producers without suffering a like hike themselves
"Do you realize why costs are rising?"
Because speculators with way too much cash are driving up prices on commodities?
Or is it the 20% a year profit growth Corporations need to keep their stock from crashing?
