Poor people are the most giving and are going to be some of the first people in the gates of heaven!SOME rich people are stingy because they become greedy and money is the root to all evil.some even die with a fortune and rather let it sit there and rot and waste then to have shared it or have spent it!! Sad but true

Everyone is so quick to JUDGE whenever someone says "Work harder for the things You want." What is SO wrong with that philosophy when we LIVE in a Country that makes that possible? If rich People really were stingy, then WHO are the ones keeping charity hospitals and food banks afloat? Even though you or I may contribute two of our last four dollars to help out; the fact of the matter is that our two dollar donations are no where compared to the donations given by the "rich" and even corporations. Tell me, how many two dollar donations would it take to run the Corpus Christi Salvation Army for 6 months? Do you really think that the Salvation Army can operate merely through the humble two donations that us "less fortunate" can spare? The reality is NO! Charities can only maintain themselves through grants and donations from the wealthy. If you don't believe me then try to operate a non-profit organization whose funds are dervived SOLELY from donations equally no more two, three, or even five dollars. The organization cannot last regardless of how many voulunteers and donations are given.

They manage their money and know how easy it is to lose it. That's why they seem tight with their money. They calculate how to invest, how to lend, etc... You ever see all that show about regular people that win the multi million dollar lotto and a couple of years down the road they are bankrupt? It's beacuse they don't know how to handle money. You gotta earn it, to know what it costs to sacrifice desires just to save a buck. And if some rich folks INHERITED their fortune, well,...somewhere down their lineage, some struggling man worked hard to save, earn, and make his fortune at the pain of sacrificing his sweat, blood, and tears to ammass a fortune, so his kids and grandkids wouldn't have to struggle so hard in life. So, if you see rich kids, don't hate. Someone problably sacrificesd his life working so darn hard so that those rich kids could have an easier life.

I beg to differ, I have become a thorn in your side because you're the only one complaining. I won't lie, I get a real big kick out of angering you, whoever the hell you are, wait your a cop right? That's why you called me by my last name. My character, as you say, may have broken me before, but that doesn't mean that I cannot rebuild myself. It's pathetic whinning bastards like YOU to blame for society going to sh*t. I may be arrogant but damn you take the cake thinking that you know how everyone thinks. Hey bro, don't be mad at the world because you were shorted.
