Visiting my brain at the funny farm.

I know a number of people that started with nothing, and are now doing quite well. Course they took a chance, and put their life savings, and long ass hours of hard work, into starting their own businesses. Working for someone else will not likely make one rich. Starting ones own business may very well do so, but you need balls of steel to take the risk. Heavily tax the rich, and less folks will be willing to roll those small business start up dice, as the reward for succeeding is diminished greatly, but the risk of loosing it all remains the same, thus less jobs for those of us who'd prefer to take the 40hr work week working for someone else, and relatively safe, and dependable steady pay check.
