Zero sum total

posted in General |

Back in my growing up days, a favorite saying was “robbing Peter to Pay Paul”. No harm done, no winner and no loser.  Well, sort of. But now that old saying hs been converted into a political philosophy.  The Dems now champion the cause of  “share the wealth” and “Re-distribution of income” . They make it sound like a fair policy.  On the road to Socialism, what could be more fair, and certainly, Paul will not complain as long as Peter is paying the bills and providing the cash.   How close to outright theft is this nifty little slight of hand?  Does the graduated income tax follow the theme??  Sounds like it to me!!
