Merry Christmas: This Tax Increase is for You, America

Why do so many seem to care so much about what other people have or make? People would be far better off in this country if they would just mind their own da*n business. Who cares what others have? Focus on building your own success. Heck, if you see a wealthy guy with a fancy car or house, do like Will Smith in that movie Pursuit of Happyness: Ask the guy what he did to get that shiny car and then go try the same for yourself. *That's* the American way, not standing there with your hand out saying "Gimme."

Let’s cut right to the end of the story: Ordinary people have already tumbled off the precipice.

There will be no dramatic rescue at the height of the tension, with crashing, ominous music turning to a sunshine ditty, a government handout straining to reach you, to save you from tumbling over the lip of the cliff.

Instead the government is going to intentionally bump into you, making it look like an accident, head turned away, mumbling an apology, much like a pick-pocket does in a crowd, with the object to lift your wallet.      

So, yes; however much they...
