Negative. One year I got her a copy of Atlas Shrugged for her birthday. She never read it, but she remembered it. The day of the VP debate she txt me and wished that she had her old copy to read now.

In 2008 she earned $70,000. Then it came time for taxes. She saw her tax bill. I told her, in her state of shock, "Who do you think is paying for all of the freebies your co-workers brag about getting?"

The light that came on was so bright that it was blinding.


A day of celebration, I'm sure.
