it seems to me every time we rethink, redesign and rebuild we screw it up. we have proof throughout our history what works and what does not. capitalism works, plain and simple. those who are against this way of doing things are the ones with their hand out. i have seen time and again that the ones who hate the rich are the ones who want riches. unfortunately those people want those riches without having to earn it.
my stepson is the perfect example. he has nothing, literally and my wife and i bought a mobile home next to ours. we have one that we bought with the land. the one next door is on the parks land and lot rent has to be paid. because we have a home, he thought we should give him the one he is in and WE should pay the lot rent. after all we can afford the home we are in so why not give him one.
so now he is going to have to pay his way or get out. we even helped in finding him a job, but he does not want to work. he wants a handout and is trying to get government help to pay his bills. it won't work for me. i insist he makes his own way, so he will go soon.
so many people want more than they can afford and expect someone or some agency to give it to them.
we should just go back to what regan taught us. if we keep on the path of "CHANGE" WE ARE DOOMED AS A COUNTRY. let the rich get rich and we who want to work will have jobs.
