Someone who has spent his life as a heterosexual white male will never be able to understand how an incorrectly-made sandwich could trigger a trauma.

Is this really a problem? Should these "rich" people be forced to stop earning so much? Should the government step in and require these people to give their wealth away?

If these people had not earned so much would the poor be better off? Did the success of Microsoft cause Malawi to be the poorest country in the world?

i read the article yesterday about the 8 richest people in the world.. i saw a lot of bellyaching by a certain segment of the population. i dont understand why people hate the rich so much .

the rich provide the majority of taxes collected, they contribute billions to charity, they create millions of jobs. i mean, what more do people want from the rich

The rich are also going to provide all of these new jobs. Trump is looking too cut the federal government by 20% and spending by 10%.

Good move!

The rich take the risk they deserve the reward.

They don't deserve it when their companies exploit their workers, pollute our environment, our air, land, waters, harm human life, wildlife, and evade paying their fare share of taxes.
