Solving McCain's dilemma:McCain
Some of the richest people I’ve ever known in my life are the most unhappy.
The Democrats can help with that!
Seriously though, the "some rich are unhappy" is a line designed to make it seem like they are struggling just like everybody else. They are not. Money can buy happiness and it certainly can help avoid unhappiness.
I think people should plaster this statement from James Dobson everywhere in news comments and in church parking lots. Whether people refrain from voting, side against McCain or side against Dobson, it will be interesting.
I'm deeply disappointed the Republican Party seems poised to select a nominee who did not support a Constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage, who voted for embryonic stem cell research to kill nascent human beings, who opposed tax cuts that ended the marriage penalty, ...and has a legendary temper and often uses foul and obscene language.
Consider that John McCain is a trophy husband for a wealthy Bud-ist dealer. He may have short arms but she's got deep pockets. No, he's not a prisoner of love. His biggest regret: Dumping his first wife when she was having medical difficulties? Not being part of the Keating Five? Yes, he was greedy: "This Bud's for me!"
Oh, feel sorry for meee! I has the horrible fate of too much money. Weep for the rich as they has it bad..really..it's tough...comparable to being on the dole.
Tax the rich at the same % as the working class and get on with life. I like the European method of assigning fines based on income. Like the one economist said, " to a wealthy person buying a yacht causes as much stress as you buying a candy bar".
