Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be expected---here and there, now and then---are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck".It certainly seems to fit in with the times, with Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the other leftists heaping scorn and derision upon those actually employing our citizens and creating abundant wealth. With the proposed taxes on “the wealthy” looming as well as other anti-business legislation, would it be any wonder if our nation's aggregate wealth were to decline as these people were prevented from doing what they do best – create jobs?
