One truism that people often forget is that we all stand on the shoulders and build off the successes of others. No man "did it" on their own, even though individual action is a necessary component of success, it is one component among others and it does not good and is not logical to focus in on one aspect of success can claim it is the only reason it happened.

I don't think anyone would argue that we are at the point where we need to lower taxes on the rich because too many of them are fleeing the country. I think the rich have gotten an unbelievable return on living in America for the past 10 years -- one they are not going to get anywhere else even if we raised taxes significantly.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
