"This attitude (attitudes?) is the very reason why the poor stay poor in this country while the fat-cats keep their hands in our pockets -- robbing us blind while they claim they are "lowering our taxes". We are such fools - we think the only way the government robs us is through taxation. One day the people will wake up -- maybe. But I'm beginning to doubt it.AM "^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Funny how folks focus on different realities.Some folks see poverty around them and do everything they can to come to America. They send whatever they can back to their families.Some folks see families living in hovels in the hills of Appalachiaor in the city of Detroit and say how can America allow such terriblepoverty.Some folks see success.Some folks see robbery.Some folks see hopelessness.Some folks see hipocracy.Some folks see opportunity.And each and every one is right in their own way.We live among such a wide variety of folks and views and religions.It is so easy to get to the position where you have a hopeless,helpless feeling. Folks will never see the solutions that you see.And you are right.Folks will never see the same solutions that you see.They don't see the same problems.They don't see the same questions.This is why compromise is difficult - what one person sees as amoral obligation another sees as an optional response. We tend to see other's obtuse responses - and not our own.Living anywhere is not easy - and it is not likely to become easy.Living in a republic where you have to accept - even if you do notagree or even respect - another point of view, takes a large amount of courage and sufficent stubbornness to repeat your points asyou feel neccessay.You appear more than capable.Howie52Off-topic - but side excusions can be so much fun.And so aggravating and annoying.
