To the Editor:
This is a deplorable’s theory of trickle-down economics. Let’s stop bashing the rich. A rich person will build a house eight times the size of an average home, creating eight times the labor and materials. The homebuilder then hires people to maintain the property.
Now, he buys a mega-yacht – depending on the size – that will employ six to 20 crew members then someone has to build the marinas and maintain them. Oh, don’t forget the people and material to build the yacht. Or, he decides he wants a private jet or to join a private country club, all these employ lots of manpower and materials to build and maintain. Here is the real heart of the trickle down.
Next time you visit a hospital, walk and look at the plaques on the walls of people who have donated large sums of money.
That is how hospitals get built. Maybe you visit a college and see all the buildings and laboratories or athletic buildings built with money donated by successful alumni. What about all those scholarships your looking at for your son or daughter? So you want to be rich and have people say you don’t pay your fair share, go out to your garage and invent something or go on the internet, find a franchise and plan on working 80 hours a week or go back to college.
Thank you all the rich people who kept this deplorable employed for 40-plus years.
