    the most greedy are those who want other people to pay for what they want or blame their own failures on others

    given how silly the poll is and how stupid the assumptions contained in the choices are why are you splitting hairs?

    because words have meaning and if we assign a meaning to a word that it doesn't actually support, we have no argument.

    Even more greedy than those who make millions by doing nothing other than playing the stock market and profiting off the work of their employees? I also recall they were more than to take the 700 billion dollars of welfare from the government. They are also very quick to blame government regulation on their failure. Strange...

    you labor under the delusion that most or even a majority of those of us in the top one percent are like such a person. You also pretend that the bottom 99% all work hard for what they got when in reality more of them inherited wealth than the top one percent (but not as much) or are lazy or live on the dole etc

    The amount of wealth they inherited doesn't really matter because it's not enough to make a huge impact for a long amount of time. I'll grant you the fact that not all of the 1% is like this but the fact that a significant amount of people can do such things and get away with it sickens me.

    So the regulation is the failure?
