RICH OR POOR
September 22 2011
I grew up essentially poor; Dad aways worked but there was zero extra money. Mom saved pennies; my brother and I worked from age 11 forward and paid some "rent", keeping the rest.
When I was in my late 30s, I started a business. It grew and went public. Of a sudden, I was, literally, rich.
As sometimes happens, it all went to where Warren Buffet and Maxine Waters belong. Ever since, I have been making a living.
Sophie Tucker is credited for the aphorism which I, and others, have lived. "I've been rich; I've been poor. Rich is better."
Thus, all the "tax the rich" and "pay your fair share" palaver is Pattonesque "horse-dung", class warfare of the worst kind. The current President, the supposed healer, is nothing more than a rabble-rousing socialist.
