How about that??? Rich people make me sich they never have to worry about anything.. They don't have to worry about where their next meal is going to come from, never have to worry about the gas being empty.. Their kids are preps and spoiled because they never have to want for anything they already have it.. The one forum that says they hate poor people, well if you hate them so much why not give us some money to help us out.. Me and my husband works everyday and still don't have the money to get our kids what ever they want.. Do you really know how hard it is to go to a store and your kids see something and want it and you have to look at them and say that it's to much we don't have the money for it.. No I don't think you really do..I don't go to Wal mart and to these name brand stores because they are to rich for my blood.. So if you really hate the poor then help us.... So our kids will have a Christmas like your kids do, instead of a couple of presents, you rich people make me sick with all attitude that your sh!t don't stink...

I grew up poor & still am today. I work hard to give my children the things they need & some of the things they want. I know what it's like to go to a store & have to tell my children, No, we can't afford it. However, I do not envy rich people and they do not make me sick. Actually, I'm proud that I am not rich because then I wouldn't be as thankful for what I do have. Rich ppl. just spoil their children with material things. Love & attendion are what children need the most. I can still remember my father (now deceased) saying to me when I was little.."We may not have much money but we have each other." I will never forget those words as long as I live. And I tell my children that there will always be other children that have more then they do but there are also children that have much less then they do. They may not appreciate my words now but when they are older, they will. And most very rich ppl. aren't really happy. If you look at the news, so many rich actors and actresses..blowing their riches on drugs, etc.

My children will most likely not have as good a Christmas this year as I have provided for them in the past simply because of the economy & how much more money it takes now for gas, etc. not to mention that job work is slower now and getting less hours. I just pray they will appreciate the few things that they ask for that I am able to get for them because I do not want them to feel sad & disappointed.

me me me...I hope that there will be a way for your children to have a nice Christmas.

Do you seriously think a rich person in this city would spend time on this site? Then again...just how many rich people would you even think live in Glasgow? There are some that are better off than others, but as far as rich...you might have a handful.

I'm not well off by any means, still struggling to finish with my degree at WKU...but I also hate to see children unhappy at Christmas.

It's called envy, and that is why you hate rich people. You are wishing that you were rich. Well, believe it or not, rich people have problems too.
The children of rich people have people hating them because of how much money thier parents have. These children didn't ask to be rich, they just are.
I know a few people who are pretty wealthy, and they give a lot of money to their church and to many charities.
Just because a person is rich doens't make them bad people and doesn't mean that they wouldn't help out a friend in need.
The problem is a poor person sees a rich person and thinks they got rich the easy way. They didn't see the years that the rich person spent being poor before they got rich.
Poor people think that rich people just have money to throw around, which isn't true at all. Rich people would be poor people if they did that. You wouldn't give all of your money away if you were to suddenly become rich, you would keep it so that you could stay rich.

Oh well maybe I'm just bitch!n.. Oh well I know my family is happy we struggle everyday but we're still happy...:)

You must be one of the people I'm talking about I went to school with alot of preps and guess what they are still preppy.. They grew up with a silver spoon, and still has one and they will hand it on to their kids and they will be grow up to be preppy too...

So....exactly what rich people do you know that state that they hate poor people? I promise I grew up poorer than most people on here, but decided that I wanted more in life, worked 3 jobs to put myself thru state college and wore clothes I got from Goodwill while I was there. I put off things like partying, kids and all the other things that teens and young 20-somethings do that keep them tied down soas no to be able to work more and better themselves. Now after a few decades of sacrifice, sweat, tears and sheer terror of opening a business and paying off debt that seemed would never go away I make a great income and am what you would consider rich I'm sure. Do I apologize for that? Forget it. If I want to buy something for my kids that I earned by the sweat of my brow, that is taking nothing from you, and believe you me, my kids know exactly where it came from and how to get it themselves. Jealousy is a wicked trait one can have in their life. There are no guarantees in this life, other than if you live in this country and work, you have a chance to better yourself. You may be surprised at what a lot of us give to charity every year. Now, if you were out looking for work at this moment instead of venting online at what you don't have, that might help a little also.

Its sad how people have forgotten what Christmas is really all about.I know the kids loves presents(adults also)Who does not love new things?I think it would be great to have lived back in the day when Christmas was more about Jesus and less about Giveme'GIveme'GIveme. I hear My parents talk about when they were little kids and were so happy just to get fruit,candycanes,maybe 1 toy for Christmas.Its imposible for me to even imagine what that was like.I have always been very lucky and have always had great Christmas's.
Its going to be hard for most this yr to have the over giving that we are all used to.This yr I have told myself its going to be a stress free Christmas.There will Be less outside lights(which MY kids could care less for).You know the ones..where the parents work so hard on and the kids never look at or want to help with.
Most of my shopping will be done online.Family who I can never please,get ready folks gift cards for you.Please your own self if that is possible LOL.All the little nick nack stuff..forget about it.We all know we throw it away.I Am only buying stuff for my kids That I know they will use or like.Yes even Grandma gets a gift card this yr.She loves to eat out,and rarely can afford it.GIft cards for people to go out to eat...great invention.Its something they will use.(Not hide in a closet till you come over).
Its possible...a stress free Christmas.Its all about Jesus.Go see yours,or someone elses Church PLay.Ride around look at the lights(Thank God gas is a wee bit cheaper).If you are running low on money cook someone some candy or cookies.Everyone loves homemade candy,cookies and bread.(We all know calories do not count in the month of December).If you must count them use splenda for your diabetic friends.
If you are running low on money..you would be surprised on how much your kids may just enjoy you time.Kids are smart they understand the money stuff more than you think.Have more family time.pop corn for the tree.JUst enjoy the blessing of having your family.And remember if you Keep Jesus in your season..you might be realize how much you really have.
God bless everyone!!!

So you can't get your kids what then want, they don't need what ever they wan't, that is what is wrong with so many kids today, parents thinking they have to get their kids what ever they want. There is nothing wrong in telling kids that they can't have ever thing they want that you can't affort to but things, if you buy everthing they want what do you think will happen when they grow up still wanting every thing, that is when the real trouble starts. I have seen it happen all to many times. So what if they just get just one or two gifts, that is the way I was raised and it never hurt me any. Maby your attitude makes me sick too, buy what you can afford and don't worry about what other people buy that is not any of your business.

Rich people have to worry about lots of things.... One such thing are all of the evil poor folks that wish to do them harm by failing frivilous lawsuits and trying to take hard earned money for themselves.

You never see a poor person that worked thier ass off to be there.

If you read my reply, I didn't have the money either. I earned it, worked a year, went to school a year. Didn't decide at 18 I didn't need a family, knew my family was doing good to feed me so I didn't look there either. I and a lot of people like me didn't have it handed to us either. I have known a lot people, rich and poor, and although some people are poor because of circumstances beyond their control, what they do with the circumstances they are dealt is what makes character and builds strength. Not everyone is going to be rich, but the problem is that a lot of people equate wealth to dignity. Just because you don't have everything you want, doesn't mean you can't hold your head up and lay out a game plan to get there. That is up to you and you alone. I can tell you right now (and you can take this however you want, I don't care), if you worked for me and showed an attitude like you are displaying here, you would be fired. Being dissatisfied with where you are and constantly bitching about it leads to nothing but disruption at the workplace and you will never get anywhere. I won't have it at my business and a lot of people I know who own business' won't either. Maybe instead of pointing fingers at why you aren't where you want to be, you need to get a mirror instead, I believe you'll find your answers there.

How many are truly rich or like to make you think that they are rich. If you watch them buy stuff they all use credit cards and I am sure making their monthly payments to get by. I am guessing that it takes everything most of them make to just get by, but what they consider getting by is what we think of as rich. I am a long ago rich person wannabe, now I am older and wiser, I just get by because I am still trying to pay off my so called rich days.
