I believe that this is just further evidence that Americans have ceased to value hard work as the means by which to create wealth. Wealth is now appropriated by gaming of the system in order to tax the value of work performed by others. This is much in the same way that a parasite pilfers its sustenance from the result of effort invested by others.
