    its funny when folks constantly argue that everyone who disagrees with them, envies them.

    I am guessing that you would think that if three people were living in a field with a limited amount of food in it and one person gathered up all the food, ate what he/she wanted and then defecated on the rest ... to those who have to decide whether or not to eat the spoiled meat, my guess is that you would say "I support market reality, that selfish person got there first, so just shut up and deal with it" ... lol! Perhaps this is not what you would think; however, it is analogous to what you are saying regarding market realities. Oh .. do you support monopolies?

    I can only speak for myself, but I fully support Capitalism, and the ability of wealthy people to invest their money to get richer.

    however, folks who earn vast sums of wealth, can afford to pay a higher percentage in taxes. and they do.

    as they should.

    so you support the concept of from each according to their ability?

    why should the rich pay a higher rate? what is the moral argument for it

    Lol, no wonder why you like to personalize things instead of sticking to the subject at hand ... actually I was an assistant to the CFO and CEO of a company (sorry for the misspell ). Again this is irrelevant (see earlier post).
