There is nothing wrong with being rich though, it takes hard work to accomplish this
Ah, the cry of the naive person.

The woman who wrote Fifty Shades of Grey is now rich, and will soon be very rich.

How hard did she work for it all? Harder than all the other writers that struggle along?

What about JK Rowling?

Well then at the end of the month after you pay your bills, then give the rest of your money to Charity. And BTW, you only need enough channels on your TV to get the news, so anything else like having Cable is greedy. You also only need one tv, or better yet, no TV. Go watch the news at the neighbors house. You can eat rice every day so please return any food items more expensive to the store as that is greedy.
Wait, wait, wait.

Are you seriously trying to compare the actions of a millionaire who has funds and business held offshore to avoid tax, and your average citizen at home that has cable TV...?

What you people don't understand is that if you work hard, like good ole Mittens, then you can be just as successful as him.

Yes, all Americans should be psychopaths. I'm sure that will make society better :rolleyes:

Super rich people become rich by being psychopaths. They don't feel guilt for anything they do. They will bleed every penny from you and it doesn't bother them one bit. Psychopaths are the people who set up scam companies advertised on TV where they say "text the answer to this question to this number and win a prize!" and the little print at the bottom that nobody can read says they charge you $10 for this

Who said you had to work harder than anyone else in your field? Point is there are certain characteristics of rich people, one of them is their work ethic.

She still wrote the book(s), took them from concept to print with the backing of a publisher. That is a long road and while luck may play a part, the content she wrote was unique and became a hit with the masses. Should she not be rewarded?

But Obama's a libertroll, so it's ok for him to be rich. Just like all the Hollywood celebs or the tv news anchors.

Lib & rich == good
