    I don't see it as his philosophy. My philosophy is that as more people join the "rich"/"wealthy" (Subjectively) the rich's "wealth income" decreases.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    People who tend to have conceded that they will never have what it takes to be successful are the ones who want government taking care of them and punishing those of us who have made the effort to be successful

    Again Turtle, you have a trained legal mind and I would hope you could make an intelligent and rational case for lower taxation rather than advocate for criminal murder.

    You tend to put A LOT of words into my mouth.

    Jryan, in your perfect world, would there be any upper class, middle class, working class?

    Ponzi scheme? Well in that case, I suppose you've never purchased insurance either.

    Whether you arrive at your reasoning of "fair" through regulation or taxes, your answer is government and government is easy as hell to manipulate if you have means. Your mention of fairness implies government intervention. Correct me if Im missing something.

    Buffet and Gates aren't clueless, just greedy. I mean, damn, what is the point of accumulating and hoarding billions of dollars?
    Money in a vault does nothing but rot. Money in circulation creates jobs...
    Gates did his best to stomp competition in the ground, AFTER become rich...why?

    I could go back to work and earn quite a bit of money, but if I can't spend it all, why have it?
    We measure success in this country using dollars accumulated as a standard. How about using jobs created as a standard. Gates would still be lionized in Forbes magazine but Buffet wouldn't...

    No, there would not be, but that is unrealistic because then there would be no incentive to go to college for 8 years (or 4 years or 2 years etc etc).

    I just have to shake my head. Our parents that built this country would have blown a gasket at that type of thinking...Ah well, I have to go out and vac the pool, my robot is down.
