You know that whole “tax the rich” philosophy of the left? Well, it doesn’t work. The reason it doesn’t work is that the rich didn’t get that way by being stupid.

May Day” anti-socialism protest against the Barack Obama administration. Gathering at the City Hall in Pasadena’s majestic civic center, the event was a follow-up to the Pasadena Patriots’ Tea Party held […]
