Dear CJP - On the issue of fairness let me offer these moronic, apelike, de-evolutionary, thieving, capitalist and conniving examples: Here's a hundred dollars for you and a hundred dollars for me. Now here's another $39.60 for you from my pocket. Or, here's another - You just earned $10,000,000 this year and I earned $18,000. Now, let's pay our taxes. You write a check for $4,000,000 and I get a check for $3,500. Just a thought. Thom
Dear Thom: Your example is based upon a faulty premise. Your example assumes that I earned $10,000,000 this year. However, since we all now live under the Limbaugh-Bush system of Casino Capitalism, the decks are stacked so much against you and me that, unless one of us was born with more than $10,000,000, the odds of either of us earning $10,000,000 in a given year are worse than 10,000,000 to one. However, the delusion of this potential pie in the sky keeps people like you supporting the system as-is, without any reforms, so that America's real winners are very few and far between but pundits like Rush still maintain a gigantic population of "Losers" to complain about. The real Losers are people like you who are not earning the big bucks and who fall for this propaganda.
