    Surprise. You just knew this was coming -- take from the rich and give to
    the poor. Now there's an innovative, progressive, evolutionary idea!

    Instead of sacrificing freedom on the altar "equality" and "fairness," how
    about teaching people how not to be poor? If you think that's impossible,
    just ask the Asians who immigrated from Vietnam and other parts of Asia to
    the U.S.
