$, why not you just don't reply to anything I post & I surely won't to yours. I think that any idiot could tell from my post that it was intended to be light hearted, you have some sort of problem with me & you just can't bring yourself to be civil so let's just leave it at that.
Sam, I am sorry to see you become frustrated and angry over the reaction to your post. The truth is that I failed also to realize that you meant humor and for a bit I felt concern for you.
Anyone who has read as many of your posts as I have should realize your sincerity and good intent. Lately you have developed an excellent sense of irony to make your points.
As a conservative I agree with you concerning treatment of the rich. Not for the same reasons, but because it is just another action by government that meddles with a free market which hurts that market for all, while allocating the rewards of the system in a distorted way toward the paper shufflers rather than those who actually produce wealth and jobs. It's who you know rather than what you produce.
With the last crash we have seen what social engineering meddling in the market can do. The next crash will be worse as we continue to abandon free market principles.
