    Just like you don't think every rich person is honest. Right? I mean, you made this post here, but I'm not going to go and assume you think all rich people are honest because that would be stupid.
    the rich who engage in illegal activity should be investigated and prosecuted. however, being good at business, inheriting wealth, investing wisely are all perfectly decent avenues towards wealth that I constantly see the parasite class whining about

    that sounds like BS to me. what ways of gaining wealth were once illegal and now legal other than selling liquor?

    there was a time when I would say you are right... but after reading the posts around here and on other forums, i'm not so sure.... the haters make no effort at differentiating between success and ill gotten success.

    If the parasites want a war, by all means both sides should fight hard
    ... historically speaking the upper income can only wage an effective class war by keeping the lower income brackets suspended in a state where they can be farmed for wealth and labor but won't actually resist the status quo.

    If people actually resist the status quo then eventually the wealthy lose, as any form of resistance is almost always worse for business than coming to terms.

    Not to mention that denying loans, foreclosures, and etc are not profitable, especially in this climate, and defeat the purpose of having a financing company.

    maybe even have contract cleaners whack them.
    ... whack the middle class?

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    In the real world, however if we are no longer the nation where the worlds' most productive and innovative people want to be - then that is our problem, not theirs.

    Its in your response. Its obvious to me that if this started to really become a problem people like you would first attack them by locking them out like you said we should do, and if it continued you would react by locking the remainder of them in.

    You won't allow your ideas to fail. Its why people like you use the UN like you do and attack China for not playing along. You won't allow anyone to be able to get away from you. Its why when we live in another country we pay taxes back to this country. We are always in your reach and that is what you want.

    A part of what caused out melt-down is that banks weren't denying loans, when they should have.

    the parasites think companies exist to pay for the parasites' health care, to pay taxes to fund the parasites etc and they think successful people OWE them something. its time for Atlas to shrug and make the parasites go cold turkey
