"Rich people suck because they're rich and I'm not" ...once you're rich enough, it's easier to get richer, but if you're poor and lazy, you're going nowhere.

So? That's why people get educations and save their money for things they really need.

Well if you're an entrepreneur and you work hard, you can get to a point where it's a lot easier to get richer. That's what this country is about.

Now, you can choose a poor lifestyle doing what you love; I don't judge; but just don't complain about being poor afterwards.

It takes hard work, skill, and other things; but rich people aren't just magically rich. Some might scam people, but the people shouldn't let themselves be scammed in the first place, and the scammers should be persecuted.

We need to support one another in protecting our property rights. 5 Major banks have recently settled with States Attorney Generals after years of fraudulently trying to take peoples homes. This settlement STILL has not stopped them. Foreclosures are surging ahead and will be worse in 2012.

Unlike you, I will not make sweeping generalizations regarding "rich people". In my personal opinion, money is only a part of it. To me, rich means having an overflowing heart, not bank account.
There are many successful companies that were started by people doing WHAT THEY LOVE to do. Nantucket Nectars, The Vermont Brownie Company, Stacy's Pita Chips, SAM ADAMS BEER..... And while I am not sure if any of those entrepreneurs are RICH, they are successful and wealthy.
