Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

You didn't earn that

Apparently keeping your earnings and passing some on to your children should now be illegal.  Building for the future of your family makes you a bum.

Welfare Bums Do Better Than Ever

Thanks to all of the handouts by the federal and state governments, leeches are now able to live high on the hog generation after generation.
The real non-workers are the wealthy who inherit their fortunes. And their ranks are growing.
In fact, we’re on the cusp of the largest inter-generational wealth transfer in history.The wealth is coming from those who over the last three decades earned huge amounts on Wall Street, in corporate boardrooms, or as high-tech entrepreneurs.
 Our tax laws are so fucked up, we are rewarding people who have done nothing to get all of this money, and we are not rewarding work but non-work like capital gains and other investments.
Of course there is no such thing as a "self-made" individual. Everybody is interconnected, Ayn Rand fanatics' claims notwithstanding.

Seems Elizabeth Warren has acolytes.  Though I do agree that the tax laws are a mess.  And the IRS should just be abolished.
