What sort of comic-book glasses are you OL1 wearing? I agree that my taxes are not high enough (probably) to pay for what Barack and Harry want to spend it on, BUT they are much higher than what I want, and probably higher than what I get. Other people, mostly in WashDC, are getting, not me.
In this sick world one of my life-goals is to become more like Christ, or St. Anthony, and become adept at living well in poverty. Earn little, spend little, be happy.
