You sure have a lot of animosity for the "Money Works for Them" people. I've worked for over 50 years. I put money away and invested it as I went along. I didn't spend it on booze. I paid tax on that money as I put it away, and I pay tax on the capital gains NOW. And that tax rate is 5 times more then the tax rate 50% of the taxpayers are paying. I'm proud to be a "Money Works for Them" person. I earned it. Some spent it on booze. Your bad decision is not my fault. Take responsibility for your decisions and quit being a hater on people that made good decisions.

Maybe some, would not say I have more animosity in total than the average working American. But unlike many, I do not direct any of that animosity toward the black, brown, green or another group trying to work for their money.

Good on you. I also worked over 50 years. And in those years I passed out more 1040s than I collected. Because I hired people to work for me, some would put me in the class "Job creater". But I know I saw a job that needed done, bought the tool needed and found somebody will to let me make money off their work.
And now I'm also one that gets most of my income from my money working for me...

If the haters of wealth would take 10 seconds to actually engage their brains they would realize that it is very likely they, or someone they care about, has a good job only because of other people's wealth. And I am not even talking about being employed by a company that is owned or headed by a wealthy individual.
At the local RV park, there are likely RVs that cost more than 95% of the population can afford. They are bought by those hated rich people, yet the poor salesman who sold it makes a commission that they then use to feed, house and entertain their families. If there wasn't a rich person to buy that RV, there wouldn't be people employed to make it. And those employees are your neighbors in Oklahoma (Newell Factory), Texas (Foretravel), Indiana (Elkhart) and similar middle American locations. I doubt I would be in business if it wasn't for people who have earned and saved more money than the average American because RVing is not a hobby for the poor.
Even the poster child for arrogant rich, Donald J. Trump, had dozens upon dozens of people making good income just from the fact that he was a wealthy prima donna. Before he became president I am sure the pilots, the mechanics, the catering company and all the other services related to his private jet were glad there was a rich person that owned and operated that jet and paid their salaries. I bet the guy who gilded the toilets in his penthouse made a nice paycheck for the job. Even the hair stylist who cut that mop on top of Trump's head was glad for a rich guy because he probably got $100+ for that haircut rather than making $10 for cutting Joe Lunchbucket's hair at Supercuts.
As a matter of fact, I bet even some of our resident rich hater's fellow truckers only have a job because they transport goods intended for the rich. Those lobsters, cases of Dom Perignon, Rolls Royces and Bentleys, solid gold toilets and pallets of hundred dollar bills don't move themselves.

The wealthy don't need thanks from the working class. Their money is their thanks. They don't need to be hated either, unless their behavior deserves it. Same as everyone else. That's what America is all about. We don't have to bow down to the rich and powerful, even the ones who think they are better than the rest of us because they have a few bucks.

To put poverty in perspective, all one has to do is look at the Dust Bowl of the 1930's. Plenty of smart hard working white folks couldn't make a living wage. Circumstances matter.

Oh so you do not have any "animosity" towards Dr. Ben Carson, MLK, football player Jim Brown? How they made their money and are successful.

Herman Cain, former President of the National Restaurant Association?

How about the former President Barack Obama and his wife? No animosity for how they got their millions in wealth?

No animosity towards Colonel Allen West?

How about some of the actors who made millions? Morgan Freeman, Eddie Murphy, Denzel Washington? James Earl Jones?

How about Oprah Winfrey? She made millions.

Wally Amos Jr., Famous Amos Cookies?


They all "tried" to work for their money and were quite successful at it.

I am sure they all filed their taxes, TOOK every tax advantage they could to pay less tax as possible as they legally could to hold on to their hard earned money.

They also used their wealth to by their million dollar homes, yachts, cars, luxury vacations, gave to charities, and have a stack of cash in the bank and investments just like the select people you seem to have a lot of "animosity" towards. This list is no different than the one in your head.
