Five Things the Poor and Middle Class Do for the Wealthy in America | CJOnline.com

1. As far back as the Civil War, the poor and middle class have fought the wars and the rich have gained from it. This is more than a simple matter of the rich hiring the poor to do the job. The poor and middle class DIE for this country. The rich do not die for the country. This is not an equal situation.

What do you think of this people?

Being poor is a state of mind. There is no reason for a person to be poor unless they want to be poor. We should follow the example set forth by Obama and Pelosi. They have called the poor free riders and put a tax in place to force them to pay their fair share for medical coverage. We need to follow up with more taxes on the poor to encourage them to get off the couch and get a job.

No. 1, 4 and 5 I tend to agree with by in large.

But No 2 and 3 are kind of contradictory....

2. the poor buy the products the rich produces... (the Rich produce the products..)

3. the poor produce the services and products for the rich. (the Poor produce the products..)

Which is it?? they seem to contradict each other and in which case makes the entire article NULL and VOID!

I think its a waste of time to argue RICH is bad and POOR is good or simply taken advantage of.. Some folks are good at sports, some are good at singing, some are good at being business men and some AREN't! That's doesn't make them bad! Sure, some rich people are bad as some poor people are bad.. but you can't paint an entire class of people as ALL good or ALL bad which this article tries to do..

DUMB DUMB DUMB

I am rich!

I have friends and family whom I care about, and who cares about me. Anything else, is just things.

The rich put up the capital to start the business and reap the profits, the poor do most of the actual work.

Consider McDonald's franchises, for example.
