    Please, tell me, what is the flaw in my dragon metaphor? I do like to learn from my mistakes; only point them out for me, kind sir.

    Dd say you had to go along. And I said history, not pages. History influences how words are read. It is false to believe any egalitarian document s so clear as to have all read it the same way.

    And you fix my quotes. Exactly the point. The less those idiots of either party do in Washington the happier I am. We need them to remove laws not make new ones.

    Stop bolding a single sentence in my posts and ignoring the rest. Have you ever fenced? I'm jabbing you repeatedly in the chest while you wave your foil at your side. Either riposte or cry out touché. Don't just spout ideologies without acknowledging the opposition.

    That's rich. Please copy and paste the point at which my head was chopped off. I'd truly love to see it. While you're at it, why not give me some feedback on that metaphor earlier that was apparently so bad? Should be a nice exercise in futility for you. Perhaps you could even use punctuation this time!

If you are one of the small sliver of wealthiest at the top, you make obscene amounts of money. You live vastly beyond comfortably, and anything you want, you can easily afford ten thousandfold. So what's REALLY going on?
    Greed harms others, it's like assault. The rich are using their income like a weapon! Therefore: Assault-income, like assault weapon, and they're rich, which means it's a high-capacity assault income! And I bet many rich folks have security guards and such, making it a military grade high capacity assault income! Why do you need all that money? Huh? Why? Why do you need it? what are you going to spend it all on? Hmm? Why do you need it?

    A moot point now that both houses of Congress have increased the tax rates for the wealthiest.
