Has absolutely nothing to do with the topic..

Expecting people to attempt to be self sufficient isnt anger. Defending ones assets against others who want to take them, isnt anger.. Clearly you need to lookup the definition of the word anger...

This from the person who just brought up the Iraq war..

Take a deep breath and refer to post #31, please.

Four posters on page 1, taking it out on the poor and the middle class, and to think we have a thread on "why do we ignore the greed of lower and middle class".

No, you don't. In fact, people like you never step out of blaming them for all ills.

Your sloppy painting of my posts as exemplifying your personal antipathy is disingenuous, at best.

How dare the poor and working folks get in the way of their exploitation by their wealthy owners.

Maybe.. just maybe, they are "taking it out on the poor and middle class" because they might consider the lower and middle class demanding more as "greedy"...

This gets especially humorous considering some of them said nothing about being rich or poor, they said those that dont pay taxes.. that would include people in all sections of the economic scale..
