Two Americas

With ironic appreciation for former Sen. John Edwards, another Tale of Two Americas.

Today, under Barak H. Obama, there are two Americas, not one: One America that does the work, another that reaps the reward in the form of transfer of wealth. One America that pays the taxes, another America that writes the tax codes, and then ignores them until appointed to higher office. One America - middle-class America - whose needs Washington has long forgotten, another America - narrow-interest America such as Hollywood, unions, ACORN, - whose every wish is Washington's command. One America that is struggling to get by, another America that can buy anything it wants with borrowed money, even a Congress and a president.

One America, where Arlen Specter could receive treatment for his cancer, and another, where a bureaucrat could determine that it was not cost effective for him to receive treatment. One America where if you work hard, get a house mortgage you can afford and live within your means, and another, where if you do none of the above, you will be subsidized by those who do.

Which America do you live in?

Which America do I live in?

The one that makes its own laws, follows its own rules, and scoffs at those who look to government for answers.

Where do I have to go to get a visa?

No visa required. Just the right frame of mind.
