    Nope, sorry, you clearly don't like being called on your narrative...Sorry, I can't help you with that.

    "punish success," my ass. success is dependent on societal structure and stability. those who have climbed the farthest up the ladder have the most to lose if we let the bottom of the ladder rot.

    The freedom to attain success is diminished when the discussion turns to the envy of that success.

    i'm not envious of the successful. i am tired of the "makers and takers" oversimplification nonsense that i often see being spouted, though.

    The tactic of making things overly complex is also a tired, worn out path....I try to live by the KISS standard being the correct analysis...

    Wow, that is one bad video....The lip movements, and guitar scenes don't even match the song...It's like they just pieced together parts of a different song in concert visuals to try and match the studio track...

    You stated you wanted government to spend less. I also agree. I merely made the point they haven't and neither did Reagan even when he lowered taxes and then had to raise them again.
