The rich already wallow in obscene wealth. Their income has rose 146 percent since 1980, while middle class incomes remained stagnant. Yet the rich want more. How much is enough? They want it all. They will never stop by all indications.
How do you describe people who impoverish millions of others, just so they can be richer? Is there a word malevolent enough to characterize them? Think about their reprehensible deed — they don’t work for the poor, blind, crippled, needy, lame, unemployed, people who desperately need help. These people don’t appear on their horizon. They are miserable nobodies. If they were somebody, they’d be rich. No, they work for those who have everything yet still want more. And they have the blessing and support of those they impoverish! Never in history has there ever been such a mind washing! Communism had nothing on this bunch. It’s like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders! A frog voting for a snake.
Intelligent people whose minds are capable of encompassing the entire situation grow nauseated of the cheering for the rich. I recently read a letter where the writer said he was sick of the war on the rich. Another said their tax breaks create jobs. I guess he didn’t notice those millions of jobs disappearing over the past decades. How do you explain this? I account for it by quoting Conrad Adeanuer: “God set limits on man’s intelligence but not on his stupidity.”
To those who will cheerlead for the rich, saying they have earned their money and deserve every break, the U.S. government reported that more than 50 percent of rich people were lucky enough to be born into a rich family. Born rich. That’s right: They have known nothing all their days but the government taking care of them in every area.
