Sounds a bit like the "leeches" versus "heroes" story... 8O

If you're up shit creek, you can either deal or beg. Refugees beg.

What would Jason Statham do?

I fully agree. People should face up to their responsibilities.

Like if you're well off, when your country's economy takes a blow and your taxes go up a little bit, you can bitch and whine like a spoilt child about "redistribution" and "socialists", or you can man up, take it on the chin and get on with life.

Some people, eh?

Not that I’m defending the rich, but I think we’re all capable of greed given the opportunity.

Let’s say you’re fairly poor but have $2,000 in savings and have to pull out $100 to fix your car or some shit. Sucks but life will go on.

Let’s say you’re fairly well off and have $2,000,000 in investments but you lose $100,000 for new imposed tax reasons. You’d probably be more pissed off than the poor car repair guy even though you need the money less.

Just a thought on the mentality of the well off.

So you agree that just as the refugee should stand his ground and fight for a better life, so too should the wealthy industrialist fight to abolish taxes. Glad to have you on my side for once! :)
