The tax cuts for the rich.
My friend, don’t you know the absurdity of that statement?
Don’t you know there is no such thing as a permanent rich or average or poor category?
Didn’t Einstein teach us about relativity? (Albeit in the realm of physics as opposed to sociology)
Rich by who’s definition. Poor according to whom.
Is an American welfare recipient (with his or her free (taxpayer funded) cell phone, subsidized housing, EBT card, which, most of the time is used to buy lottery tickets and booze) poor compared to a Nigerian factory worker or an Ivory Coast wholesaler?
Is a $100,000 salaried technician rich compared to a $5 million a year professional athlete who’s performance might be mediocre at best compared to his peers?
Don’t you understand that prosperity, or lack thereof is a continually evolving phenomenon mostly (but not entirely) contingent upon effort, talent and luck?
Don’t you know that today’s winning streak is tomorrow’s losing streak?
Don’t you know that low income people of today are prosperous and comfortable folks 25 years from now?
Don’t you know that the top Forbes businesses of today are the potential bankruptcy filers of tomorrow?
Is a person on a 35,000 a year salary who has saved over his lifetime and has retired with 100,000 in savings “rich”?
More importantly, don’t you know that you don’t know?
