IN my graduating high school class, I know of one fella who is very successful, as defined by wealth. (well, by my standards, not your puts yuppy low standards). He was a 4.0-4.2 gpa average, did all the extra credit crap, studied for all the tests I cheated on, did all the homework I just refused to do. His mom got accolades form teachers on Parent's Night, while my Dad came home and whacked me.

This kid is now a very, very successful surgeon. We're only recently back in touch (our connection in school was we were buddies via working the school's radio station). From what I can estimate, this guy earns alot of money, more than me.

HE HAD THE SAME 24 HOURS PER DAY THAT I HAD. HE CHOSE TO WORK HIS BUTT OFF. I DIDN'T. I'M NOT A MOOCH WHERE SOMEHOW, I CALL THAT "DISPARITY". WE WERE BOTH ABLE BODIED, AND WE CHOSE OUR DESTINIES.

So, for you PA mooches: Yes, there are people, people whom you'd least expect who have wads and wads more cash than you do. Even you yum-yums on that pitiful Millionarre Fools board. So WHAT? IT'S NOT A DISPARITY THAT'S SOMEHOW ASSIGNED TO PEOPLE.

But hey, I think there's a health disparity. Fat people have more health problems and bills. I think we ought to tax healthy people even more, to get rid of the health disparity. LOL.

In the end, you mooches, no matter HOW MUCH you tax people who have more than you....in the end, they will have more than you do, and you'll be at the water-cooler whining about the ferner's the company hired, or you'll be at your cubicle doing Facebook and reading the Koz and being jealous of people.
