The United States has accumulated over $70 trillion in unreported debt. 75% tax is not going to pay that off. So the best thing to do is run away to some place that is not in so much trouble, like Greece.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Lol, nice.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

There certainly are some industries which are much easier to enter than others, but this kind of thinking as an overall view of what it's like to be entrepreneurial in america is a joke:

No he's not. There are some people in this world who simply don't see the roadblocks that are obvious to the rest of us. These are the people who casually say; "Start your own business" or "Move somewhere where you can get work." when you try to explain why things are difficult for you.


It's hubris, Ed.

I would posit that, in the final analysis, it is all a matter of luck. Certainly some measure of talent or tenacity is helpful, but only a ticket to the lottery. Most "successful" people are encumbered, in the dark of night, with a nagging realization that they have no idea how or why they got so lucky as well as a fear that they could never duplicate their good fortune were it necessary to try again from scratch...

That is absurd. NOT ONE successful person I have ever met is worried about that. As a matter of fact the huge majority of them have the confidence that if something did happen it would not be long before they were back at it again.

THE HUGE percentage of successful people I have known know EXACTLY how they got where they are.

Now to be fair those are the people who made it the hard way. Made it through working very hard very long. Those with it thrust upon them suddenly are not successful.

Fixed your post for you, Al!


Except they don't generally lower them for you or me. They lower them for people in the "Donald Trump" level of riches.
