You can set the economic rules and the social rules, and whatever rules you set will apply during your lifetime and your children's lifetimes.' And you'll say, 'Well, that's nice, but what's the catch?' And the genie says, 'Here's the catch. You don't know if you're going to be born rich or poor, white or black, male or female, able-bodied or infirm, intelligent or retarded.'
Oh lawd have mercy you sound like a left wing liberal democrat. Being an enabler makes a person a part of the problem and does not solve the issues. No one said poor people are bad. But there are a hell of a lot of poor people abusing the tax payers and although they may be friendly and neighborly people they are leeches and destroys a nation. And you said rich people are shady but then you quote one if the richest men in the world, go figure.
