    Why do we continue to punish success in this country? It starts in the public schools where the education is directed toward the average or below student. This is the main reason many nations have passed us by in many fields.

    It is hard to believe that anyone would strive to be middle class. Why would anyone wish to limit themselves except perhaps someone that does not have the push or ability to deal with the stress of success? Class is self imposed in this great nation. We still have so many opportunities. The poor can become rich because of ideas, effort, and confidence and the rich can become poor because of laziness and wasteful spending.

    The jealous, lazy, and of course the politicians that sees an opportunity to gain their power from the weak wish failure on those that have worked so hard to become successful. The successful in this country have their hard labor taxed at a much higher rate and many are still successful. Some are destroyed by this unfair penalty. The weak want to tax them even more.

    Taxation is a fine we pay for success. The goal from the left very well could be to fine us into extinction.

    America has one of the the lowest tax burden of any industrialized country. paying for the roads.bridges,police,fire emergency,water and the many other services of the government is not punishment.

    A successful person is an independent person.

    Paying for crackwhores to have bastard children, and then for the public to raise them, is.

    But you always say FOX is nothing but lies. Now, you're using them as a source?

    Think about that for a moment. I know it might strain the last remaining brain cell you have, but make an effort.

    YOU, TM, just used as a source of information, FOX... whom you say lies.

    Ergo... you lie.
