So what is your answer?
Steal from the rich and give to the poor?
Teach the poor that they can have more money if they would stay in school, work for a living, not have 6 kids before they are 21?
Anyone have another answer ?
I am not sure what that video represents besides wealth envy, bitterness, jealousy, etc.
There has always been the Rich and the Poor, there always will be unless we have Socialism or near Socialism.
But, Even in Socialism no one is happy, you still have divisions.
While everyone is paid the same, has the same house, same car, etc.... the fact is Someone has to Sit in the Air-conditioned Office and answer the phone and someone has to Shovel the Dung at the Waste Treatment Plant.
Life is not fair, no matter what you do or try to do!!
Contrary to some believes, people have a choice, they have opportunity, they have desire and a chance to succeed.
While everyone may not be a Sports Star or a CEO and make 25 million a year, they have a Chance to make a Decent Wage.
But the reality is they do not use that chance!
The Top 9 of Ten highest Paid professions are Doctors as a whole, number 9 on the list is CEO, the others are all Doctors
So contrary to many beliefs, the Rich are not born with the silver spoon, the go to school, actually stay in school, work had and make something of their life.
Look at Obama, he was not born with a Silver Spoon, he applied himself, went to school and became President.
But most people want to whine and cry and say they hate the Rich, they have it so easy.
I say GET off your lazy butt, quit being a baby and make something of your life, jealousy, laziness and envy will only DESTROY you and Bankrupt the Country.
