Poor me.

It looks like W is going to get the tax cuts he wants and more. Since Greenspan backed tax cuts even the Democrats have tax scratch fever. Except for minorities.

Of course, many Republicans are in favor of giving larger tax cuts to the majority of Americans. That is, with exception of one class.

Red-haired Arabs living in Seattle? Three legged Samoids? No. No politician could ever get away with saying 'I support tax legislation to help all Americans except Blacks with dyslexia.'

The rich. That evil class so fun bash. And why not? They've got Porsches. As I write my check to the IRS this year (that's right, even the rich do their taxes hoping for a refund, only to find they have to write a check - a big one), I can't help but feel that when it comes to keeping my money, like we'd all like to do, I'm in the bottom 1%.

But don't feel sorry for me. I'm rich.
