    here is a link to all 231 pages of the report

    this should give anyone enough information to keep them busy for a very long time.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    Naw I did. You would be surprised at how rich you are if you just get what you need and not a ****ing 3 car garage. I'll be living like a pimp for the rest of my life.

    Right there is one of the big problems with the entire position. Everyone works hard. The poorest often work the hardest. The misguided notion that some deserve more is really just a "me! me! me!" proposition. "I'm more important, my work is more important, I deserve it more." That burger flipping kid you look down on... he works pretty damn hard, too. How about truck drivers, or nurses, or even your basic clerk who has to deal with the annoying public all day. They all work hard. You are not special.

    You are right you probablydo work real hard. The Good Reverend just also works "smarter".

    Because I choose to constanlty improve my position i have been a success. It's not my fault that you flip burgers. Nor is it my responsibilty to pay you for mindless work.

    Don't believe in giving charity, eh? Apparently, the good Reverend is not a Christian.

    Oh did you assume?


    Lets see. Wounded warriors, two catholic orphanages, inner city b and g clubs are but just some of the charities i am not only involved with monetarily but with my time.

    A burger flipper is not a "charity".


    Fail.


    Btw. You? Didnt think so.

    that sounds good but is complete BS. The market determines who is more valuable and while that might suck to those who are not highly valued its far more realistic than letting some disgruntled individuals artificially make that determination.

    Flip burgers? I go to school, make cars, raise a child, and do design work on the side (with farm work thrown in there on the weekends if it's cutting season) and I also don't talk in the third-person so +1 me.
