Response to Triana (Original post)

11. There was an internet email going around a couple years back. It listed a whole

bunch of taxes that supposedly used to not exist and went on to say that 100 years ago America had a strong middle class and mothers could stay home and take care of the kids and so forth. The whole thing was bullshit. I fired back at the person that sent it to me a whole bunch of annoying facts.

Actually many of those taxes had existed 100 years before or the equivalent at the time. There really was no middle class and I linked to web page showing miner deaths 100 years before. We killed something like 3000 miners that year and many of them were kids. The kids were not at home being cared for by mom.

It's amazing what some of these people will fall for.
