38. Beautiful..

Wealth seems to corrupt most right to the rotten core. I'm not poor, but I'm sure not wealthy by any stretch. I can no longer afford a small house to rent, so I'm living where I can afford...in central Mexico.

My kids will inherit nothing when I leave. My SS, half teacher's pension and my VA disability will "poof" when I take my last breath. I count my blessings and recognize I have it good...damned good compared to many.

I feel for the struggling and the poor. I resent the rich, not because I envy their wealth, but because I deplore their turned backs to their brothers and sisters who need a helping hand that they can afford.
I seriously believe we need to return to the days of 90% tax brackets...a stiff inheritance tax, and many other forms of taxation and relief to balance out American's plight. Those that share their wealth are few and far between, and I believe what most share is disgraceful in nearly every instances.

You have a wonderful gift that money can't buy. Keep up the good fight. You are right about it all.
