Dear Comrade Mark,

Yes. We writers make TONS of money. They just shovel it at us. Because, you know, all of us writers are the Masters to all of you indentured servants.

The real indenture that holds you in thrall is not money; it’s the slavery of your ideas.

Let me tell you something, I admire money success as much as anyone, but I’m not enamored of it. Money is an obsession for liberals. To me, it’s just a tool.

I write for a living because that is what I love to do, money or no. And usually in the writer’s trade, it’s no.

But, I’m wealthy in the things that really count.

Liberals love to divide people up by income and gender and race and other demographics because they love division.

I won’t be divided. Sorry. Money up, money down doesn’t mean squat if you truly value what’s important.

You want to make money? There are plenty of jobs in sales that offer great income opportunities for people who want to work hard, regardless of their condition in life. 

America still is a land of opportunities. We just resent the hell out of guys like Obama who make those opportunities harder to come by because of his academic disdain for the real world.

As to Bush versus Obama in jobs: You don’t create a ton of jobs when you are at full employment.

You know who owns the record for the lowest unemployment since after the immediate post-war period? Bush.

You know who holds the record for the highest unemployment? Obama.
