While I agree that their tax rates are rather low and should be raised, I don't think they're evil, and I can't see why other people do. Do they think that jobs just come from magical trees in jobland (job helmet required).

Nobody hates the rich.

However, I hate the stupid, like you.

I don't hate rich people. I just hate people that think they are better than others because they are "rich".

They aren't better. Some are more successful, some are very lucky, but not better. But just as silly are people who go "You have stuff that I don't have, I want to take your stuff!". That's envy, and it is nothing but trouble. And that is the root of the Occupy movement, who definitely hate the rich for the most part.

I don't hate all rich people. Only the ones who waste their money.

People think its greed for you to want to keep the money you've earned, but it's not greed to want the money someone else has

In short, lazy people being envious

So you hate people because they don't spend their money in a way that you'd like?

I guess you could say it that way, but it's not what I meant really. I just don't like it when people use money to finance their own greed.
