Rhys today: "I'm trying to remember one positive comment about anything ever in here out of you, and drawing a blank."
Me yesterday: "I feel like one of the luckiest people that has ever lived... I lived the american dream."
Some see only what they wish.
Yesterday you referred to me as: "... those who got there by efforts other than their own..."
Today you say: " We really don't care how you came by your fortune."
Truth is you DO care. You want very much to make people who hold my views and fortune into "evil rich bastards" who steped on folks like you to get their ill-gotten fortune. You want that very very very much.
When that is refuted, it crushes your narrative; showing how people can work hard and get rich drives you crazy because it shows how hard you actually work. So you then reverse yourself, almost out of pure reflexive habit, and claim that how I got my fortune does not matter.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: (or maybe on their windshield)
17 And that no man might buy or sell, (or park in Downtown Steamboat) save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.-Revelation 13-
United Airlines DID charge me extra. That was not fiction. Every word of that was true.
If people are stupid enough to believe the "Fairness in Groceries" tale is non-ficton, then what can I say."Stupid is as stupid does, Forest".
I do not "want better cards" at all. On the contrary, I feel like one of the luckiest people that has ever lived. Hard work tends to make people lucky. I lived the american dream. I learned the value of hard work and that work is a privilege, not a "right", not something for suckers, not something to be avoided ort pawned off on others, which is EXACTLY what the policies of progressives are teaching an entire generation.
If you can not see America's standing in the world diminishing; if you think we are on the glory road to prosperity with our $18 trillion in debt; if you believe we can continue to import slave labor AND have high wage jobs; if you believe big corporations are going to re-patriate the trillions they have overseas so that they can pay the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world; if you believe Alan Gruber didn't mean people exactly like YOU when helaughingly admitted that americans who fell for Obamacare were "stupid" (his words); if you think waterboarding a handfull of camel jockeys is so terrible but killing folks with drones is just a grand 'ole thing; if you think having a president (D or R) make laws without going thru congress is somehow going to lead to your continued freedom, well... then... I can see why you can't recognize truth from fiction.
"Fairness in Groceries" is a picture of your darling gubbamint "financially profiling" it's citizens. A picture designed so that even those with limited education and intellect might begin to get a picture of how ridiculous it is to charge everybody different prices and call it "fair share".
Sorry it was over your head.
"Perhaps you would be so kind as to enlighten us. How exactly are the decisions of a private company (grocery store, United Airlines) related to the Gubbamint you so despise? Inquiring minds would like to know"
If the letter, an analogy and not a real life event, was too hard for you to understand, nothing I can say now will enlighten you.
If the progressive left gave a damn about american workers, their pay, their working coinditions, their prospects for employment, they would tell their political pals in DC to stop flooding the market with what amounts to slave labor from Mexico.

If rich people suck so bad, why not get a job from a POOR person?
