seems to me that they do.

The rich hate the poor for being poor, the poor hate the rich for being rich.

It's all about competition and self glory.

At my local pool I notice how they always have 2 guys 'picking up leaves' - ie: they pretend to pick up leaves that aren't really there.

all this is done of course to keep them in their place, and make the customers, owners and management feel satisfied that they are way higher up the social chain.

This is a form of hate.

I've met many many rich people and none of them hate anyone. Ridiculous.

it's an indirect, insidious form of hate.

why do they always pay them the least they can but at the same time try to avoid paying taxes?

So is so great about being poor that we spent a trillion dollars on them last year? I just don't see it. 50 years of failed Great Society programs and we have higher poverty rates than ever before. When do the poor worry about themselves and get to work to stop being poor?

The poor depend on the rich.

It is far easier for a rich man to hire a poor person, than for a poor person to hire a rich person.

The poor should honor the productive members of society who foot the bill for them to eat.

For some people, everybody is beneath them who is not the one they see in the mirror.
Rich, Poor, Black, White, Brown, Yellow, Young, Old, Christian, Non-Christian.
I know rich and poor who are trying to improve the conditions of the inner-city.
I know rich and poor who are trying to improve racial relations.
and I know rich and poor who are trying to not only better themselves but the community.

I also know those who don't care one way or the other. But not everybody is like them.

Actually, it's usually the fellow poor or nearly-poor who vocalize their hatreds. Just observe this forum.

I don't know about hate - but the self-professed 'job creators' on this forum certainly have great disdain for the poor. Does that transfer over to real life?

Probably, IMO.

Bull Crap.

Being rich doesn't make you productive, and being poor doesn't make you unproductive.


Just remember, just about anything you eat, comes via the hands of a poorer person, be it a farmer, a farm worker or one of your servants.
