$3 Million isn't a lot. My income is even higher than that of the repair

Brag about your income all you want to, Brock, and I'm sure you earn every penny of it. But you better start watching those pennies. Obama has declared class warfare and you can no longer rely on paying an already excessive 14% tax on your income. Kowtowing to the takers (see Stockton), he's trying to chase all of us high-end makers out of the country.

Hey, John and Brock, I earn even more than your incomes all added up, like $10 million a year

I am so sad, I only earn like $6 million. At least, I don't have to pay all the taxes you successful guys have to.

Judging by the comments, Pleasanton is a pretty rich community. I think might be moving here this summer
