Why are rich people so selfish. They are so tight with their money and it makes me sick. I just want to know why are they so greedy. You can't take it with you and your kids will just spend it. Why not help your neighbor!

Are you serious? Do you actually expect your 'neighbor' to just give you money? I hope this is a joke because otherwise it is simply pathetic.

Most wealthy people give to charity.. Legitimate charities they can get a tax deduction for. I dont understand why it has become disgusting for people that work hard for their money to want to do what they want with it. If you want money work for it and dont live beyond your means...geez I cant believe wealth is demonized.

i think you missed the point. The person I think was talking about giving to neighbor as a phrase. Most rich people are right and don't give that much. I am a teacher and most rich kids in my class never give anything of value. Notice I said most. They may give a cheap ornament at Christmas. While other middle class give gift cards etc. I just had to tell my side of it.

A lot of people think your rich if you got a fairly nice home and cars. I know some of my family thinks me and my husband has a lot of money and we don't. We draw a nice retirement but were far from being rich. They think you should hand them money whenever they want it. We worked for our money and all my kids go to work everyday and I will not hand them money. Oh by the way none of this family works,and wants to drink and pop every pill they can get their hands on. And some of them are on the draw. I may be dumb but I am not stupid!And because I won't hand them money when they call they don't like me. Do I care? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

i know of so many rich people. i think it is awful how they hord their money. they go the extra mile to cheat and skimp and around. when they get to heaven they will be last, read the bible. they may think they are great now but it will all come out later. karma
i am a middle class person and really love my life. i don't have to cheat the system and can sleep well at night.
nobody want hand outs from the rich but they would like honesty and some compasion for us middle of the road people.
all the rich kids walking around just kill me. and they look down on us, but their day will come.

All the communists that have infested this country make me sick. You say when they get to heaven they will be last. What about though shall not steal- which is the entitlements that you wish to "steal" from others paychecks. What about Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor? Pay attention to your own business and leave the wealthy alone... their backs are sore from carrying you all. Capitalism is the most fair and just economic system that has ever been devised and in capitalism people become wealthy and create more wealth for others. So while your living in subsidized housing, getting your foodstamps, walking to the mailbox and getting your disability check, or getting your free public education maybe thank a rich person instead of calling them names?

So your whining about a "gift" that was given to you by a student. A christmas present is not suppose to be about the cash value of a gift, it is about the thought & sentiment put into a gift. What happened to it is the thought that counts? I sure hope your not my childs teacher. I would not want your snobby attitude to be taught to her. Just had to tell MY side.

Funny how you say wealthy people cheat and steal. Honesty is what rewards most. I know far more POOR people that cheat and rob and lie and steal. Maybe that's why they have nothing!!!

This issue was definitely started by an Obama supporter. They want to see them "Re-distrbute the Wealth". They want the sucessful people to carry them. I wonder what their definition of RICH PEOPLE is? And who has the right to decide who is being tight? Did you know that there is no law in place against being tight? Sometimes I see so much hate on here that I just hate it!!!

DO you give gifts to the mailman or the hairdresser? Do you give a gift to the aides and janitors, clerks, cooks in your school? I bet you don't. So don't that make you selfish as well? They make a fraction of what you do and don't have a union to back them up. Heck, the schools wouldn't even back them up if something happened.
Let me tell you the two best gifts I ever got as an aide in the public school was a drawing done by one of my students. I framed it and put it on my desk at school and then took it home at the end of the school year. The other was a few lucky stones a first grader found on the playground and brought to me. I still carry them in my purse. This child is grown and I saw him just a few weeks ago. He asked about his stones, I pulled them out and showed them to him. He just grinned.

Look at all the lawyers who sue and advertise. Now the money is never enough. They settle big cases and hardly work. They chase ambulances and sue hospitals and doctors. What a life. Then they are so tight. I bet they never tipped hair dresser, mail man, etc. I've worked for many of these people and have watched them. It's sad to say how tight and greedy they are. I'm not saying to redistribute wealth. I'm just wanting to know if others see how tight and selfish they are.

I really consider it none of my business how they pass their money around. As long as they worked for it they can do what they want. That way there's no disapointment from either side.

Not everyone can buy for their child's teacher. I try to get something each year but my husband is unemployed and I am the only one working so I can't afford an expensive gift. I can't beloved a teacher would expect expesive gifts. They should be greatful for a gift at all.
