    "Color is a marker for that culture."

    The problem is that there is no such thing as "white culture" in the US. I've been to towns where it looked like Norway and people actually spoke Norwegian, and towns where it was the same with Germany and German, Ireland, Sweden....

    The real culture of the US that results in innovation and prosperity is the one that welcomes everyone who does anything well, and rewards it. Neither skin color nor language count; results do. That's why the Republican insistence that everyone who isn't white but got an education here has to go "back home", regardless of whether they're set to start a business that will employ a hundred people or more, even regardless of whether they even have another home than America, is not merely foolish and inhumane, but anti-liberty, anti-excellence, and thus anti-American.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Hypocrisy here. You state a proposition that is undeniably true, but then define culture by race, thus ignoring the reality of the culture you're describing.

    The success culture of America has nothing to do with race. It has to do with welcoming new ideas and new ways of doing things. In truth, for a generation after World War II, the culture you regard as "white" thrived better in Japan than in the United States, while a culture of the same arrogance you present shackled America, and even today holds it back from progress. More recently it has thrived better in South Korea.

    The culture of success is, to borrow from Ronald Reagan, the culture of excellence, of innovation, of striving to do things better and to find new things to do better.

    Please explain how the filthy tendrils of nonwhite culture have now subverted his ability to innovate or create opportunity.
    For that matter, picture businesses started by immigrants from India, Turkey, and Indonesia, who speak English only poorly, but have built businesses here which are bringing stiff competition to long-standing "white" businesses here. Think of similar owners holding their businesses steady through the economic malaise our "white" banker culture bestowed on us, while "white" businesses struggle and/or fail. That's going on all over the country -- and in each case, it's the immigrant who is more representative of American culture than the others.

    The employee receives a value that is equal to his contribution, at the time he makes it. The employer's profit comes from finding a buyer for that good or service who is willing to pay more than the employer did. That is the employer's contribution, and where the employer creates value. The final price to the consumer covers the full value of the employee's contribution, and the full value of the employer's capital investment in providing tools and a workplace for the employee, and the full value of the employer's network and skill at finding customers. Thus, each party is paid only for what they put in.

    Consider if the employee were to swipe $10 from the till: he would be charged with theft because he did nothing to earn that money. On the other hand, he earned every nickel of his paycheque (was about to say "every penny" but we've just eliminated those).

    He earned every nickel of his paycheque by parting with something of exactly equal value: his own time and skill. It is up to the employer to resell that time and skill at a profit.

    This is all by way of demolishing the myth that an employee should owe some kind of craven gratitude to an employer. It is sickening to see some twisted versions of capitalism presented in this thread that would treat employees like they should be grateful serfs on their master's estate. They earned their paycheques in full, and owe no special gratitude to the writer of the cheque.
    What a blissfully pleasant view of the process!

    In reality, the employer tends to pay no more than he can get away with, as much less than the actual value of the work the employee does as he can manage.

    How is this a negative?!?

    At root, taxation of income is theft. We should be proud that the federal government manages to not steal that way from half the population, and set our sights on raising it to three-fifths.

    That would merely be keeping the economics honest.
