    I am afraid this lesson applies to far too many Americans.

    Shame Henderson has to worry about his retirement. If he lived in a decent country he would retire at full wage $450,000 a year and never worry about a 401K or his retirement, his childrens education would be paid by the state, his cable bill would be free, his family would be getting free health insurance, his car would be fully automated and do 200+ to work, and he would suffer through 45 day paid vacations & twice as many holidays as American workers get. And what really seems odd, he would work shorter work weeks, and pay the same taxes as an American worker for all the extra benefits he receives. And because he doesn't live a life filled with stress, he lives longer than Americans do. And because his daughter gets better health care than Americans, he will have more grand children surviving child birth, and more time to spend with them. My heart goes out to this wise professor who is to dumb to know what he is missing.

    Sheman... why are you obsessed with tearing everybody down? I've never seen a person just consumed with hatred and jealousy as you are.

    How old are you? This isn't a trait found in many adults.

    Sheman is off his rocker, or, like Flaylo... a product of a childhood spent on Adderall so his parentscdidn't have to deal with him. I just dunno. It's sad.

    Its tough being rich these days..

    You have to keep a straightface while you explain how hard 3% more in taxes is while you pocketed an additional 8% in wealth.

    You have to explain to those who work for you that they need to bite the bullet while you pocket excess profit

    Defending Democratic Capitalism Kelly site . net? Seriously?

    I wonder if this is what passes for legitimate, unbiased, non partisan information for the left?

    Seriously... we seem to have a plethora of posters who have and their brains surgically removed and replaced with propaganda. It's sad, really, it is.
