Should we be Bitter?

You know being in the Mortgage business is not an easy thing these with all the regulation and figure pointing.  Sometimes I guess I bitter when I find out that bank loan officers don't have to take the same NMLS tests that I had to take to do this business.  All they need to do was to get finger printed, I guess the bank lobby in Washington is far great than whoever is lobbing for my best interests. 

Should I be bitter that my secretary makes more money than me?  This is my choice , of course, to run my own business and provide for my people.  But why in the heck would Warren Buffet say his secretary pay more in taxes than he does.  Obviously he does not do his own books, if you added up as a percentage of his income all the property taxes, personal property taxes, payroll taxes, excise taxes, capital gains taxes, income taxes, royalties, DMV fees he is paying enough taxes to employ anther 10,000 people.  Where is that logic?

Should I be bitter that I worked hard and paid off my house during the worst economic time since the Great Depression and people are being incented to walk away from their homes after living in the home sometimes rent free for over a year?  Our Government looks at those people as victims and have several funded programs to help these folks.  What about me that did the right thing????

There are more things to be bitter about let me know what yours are or even better let everyone know how NOT BITTER you are.
