Your understanding of my "almost" biblical quotation may be confusing, but my intention was to say it just the way I said it. Yes, it's is "backwards".... the original quote does say, "It is easier for a RICH MAN to enter the gates of heaven" .... but as I'm sure you know (like all of us know) ... it is actually the poor here -- the "deplorables" who cannot enter the gates of our worldly 'heaven" here on earth. America has been a wonderful place to be for a long time. But lately, it's full of homeless, and hopeless, wanders, and people who are burdened by enormous credit card debt, etc. ad nauseum. Our heavenly "home of the free" has become a dismal place for the greater numbers of us all. Yes, it's bass-ackwards. And that is the point.
