nice generalization. I thought liberals were against stereotyping?

[-] 1 points by RedJazz43 (2757) 2 years ago

Except, of course, those who fund the movement.

How did they get rich if they don't work?

[-] 2 points by elf3 (2240) 2 years ago

how should I know? - I'm not rich so I'm not smart

[-] 1 points by freewriterguy (882) 2 years ago

u cant get rich in america unless you screw someone, its a fact.

[-] 0 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

I know firsthand that is not true.

[-] 0 points by utahdebater (-72) 2 years ago

I disagree

[-] 1 points by freewriterguy (882) 2 years ago

for example owning several houses and getting rich off your poor renters for example, and never selling one of your houses to them is just one of the many examples that rich people get rich by screwing other people out of what should be rightfully theirs if people shared the abundance of the earth instead of hoarding it from eachother.

[-] 1 points by Apercentage (81) 2 years ago

No, thats them providing a service, a place to live. Thats not screwing someone at all. The notion that "u cant get rich in america unless you screw someone" is silly. Such comments only stem from envy.

i actually dont want anything that anyone else has, but i do want others to quit charging me so much to live on the earth, who says they own it and can charge me so much for it. Including the 70k in rent i paid at my last house where as you say, (they did me a favor) when in fact they bought it for only $30k and are suing me for carpet damage, and mystically damaged paint on walls that wont " take their painter's paint according to their painters affidavit he said he hasnt seen in 30 years of repairs" according to court documents, an additional $4k i am paying 200 a month to them for the next few years, but im going into default this month cause i dont even have enough to pay my utility bills. u see its not envy, unless you think the entire OWS IS ENVY?

Actually, it's the best method. Highly recommended.

Let your money do the work my friend.

Why not?

Is this Finance 101, or what?

True, but don't let it get to you. Insert cliche here. I wish I had the answer but that's just the way it is.

Good for you. Now take your hatred somewhere else.

[-] 3 points by elf3 (2240) 2 years ago

Black Sun - which is it am I a kumbaya singing hippie or a hate monger ? Or can't the establishment make up your mind?

[-] 0 points by BlackSun (275) from Agua León, BC 2 years ago

Why do you hate?

[-] 2 points by elf3 (2240) 2 years ago

because I so want to live in peace - there are just too many assholes on the planet ruining my time

[-] -1 points by BlackSun (275) from Agua León, BC 2 years ago

Pathetic. Sad that it's all about you.

[-] 2 points by elf3 (2240) 2 years ago

sad that I have to bother really - just feel compelled to for humanity's sake - ironic huh? ... and most unselfish I would say

[-] 1 points by Chugwunka (89) from Willows, CA 2 years ago

Ruining my time.. And now you claim to represent humanity? Ever consider that many parts of humanity may not agree with your views? Such an ego.......

[-] 2 points by elf3 (2240) 2 years ago

well yes but those are the ones I hate

[-] 0 points by Chugwunka (89) from Willows, CA 2 years ago

Hatred is useless. Your hatred only hurts you, not them.

[-] 3 points by elf3 (2240) 2 years ago

Is the Brain a parasite on the heart, liver, lungs, and muscles?.......

[-] -1 points by Jflynn1964 (-206) 2 years ago

That sounds like your problem.

[-] 1 points by elf3 (2240) 2 years ago
  • I can't help that the rich are parasites
[-] 0 points by Jflynn1964 (-206) 2 years ago

Maybe there is a bigger problem than that and that is you. Maybe you are the parasite. You sure sound angry with this type of comment.

[-] 1 points by ComeTogetherNOW (650) 2 years ago

No, the rich are the parasites. That's their problem.

Thank God you and me are NOT parasites JFlynn1964!!!

Rest easy. :-)
