musing,howw all of you spout off about,and  blame someone else,for either being rich or not being rich. Do any of you remember that the Bible tells us that it is easier to pass a camel through a needle's eye than for a rich man to enter Heaven?

this is just the stupidest story I've read in ages!!! They fail to factor in the cost of living in those areas!!! People are paid more in those areas!!! Hence, higher income but the cost of living is also higher by a significant amount!!! Let's take a look at NYC! Teachers make on average $75000/yr in NYC!!! Teachers make on average $35000/yr in North Dakota. But you need to factor in the cost of living!!! The cost to rent an apartment in NYC is nearly 10x as much as ND. Dumb author!!!

Not sure how maryland made number one. Sure there are a lot of middle class folks, however millionaires, where are the living? If one is to visit the health department on any given day, one will see more than the number of WIC and medical assistance applicants and recipients are triple folded. Many of these folks have jobs and education, but are not able to keep up with food and gas prices constantly rising up. As a former HR recruiter, I can share that for every 10 openings I had to offer the public, there were at least 200 applications. I'd like to see folks stop pointing the finger at Pres Obama, and point the finger at the real culprit the OIL companies. Gas prices are the real source of why the economy is awful. GAS costs more, which makes EVERY thing else cost more (Food, clothing etc). Folks can't afford to support the small business because the money is going to gas/oil. Companies cant hire folks cause, the clientele is just not there. Layoffs happen,, folks lose there homes, and that causes real-estate values to plummet. Lets also take a look at the the real estate market, it seems all are pointing hands at the consumer, (one idea is folks bought a house that they could not afford). UMM? I don't think that is the answer, maybe look at the builders who sold New homes at Ridiculous prices,(GREED). Folks! The Housing market went bust because sellers got greedy.

The reason the middle and poor classes are going broke is because of that dang Obamacare. The folks up in DC are greedy and so they help people that are on their side, but stuff like occupy wall street isn't the answer to getting the problem solved.

To me, Capitalism comes in three forms.


1) -Conscious Capitalism: Ten people get rich by starting a company that employs 1000 people who receive a good pay, good benefits and job security.

2) -Predatory Capitalism: Ten people get rich by deliberately causing 1000 people to lose their homes or their jobs.

3) -Stupid Capitalism: Ten CEO's run their businesses into the ground causing 1000 people to lose their jobs but then receive an annual $1,000,000 bonus each as a reward.

A person who applies the last two forms isn't a "Free Market Capitalist". He's a greedy parasite and curbing his depredations is really what the Occupy Wall Street movement is all about.

do insects, fish and trees go to heaven when they die?  they are living things, and "God" created all living things, right?  maybe they go to different heavens, a tree heaven for the trees, insect heaven for the insects ... and of course tree hell for the sinuous trees, fish hell for the fish who have sinned, et cetera

"In God we trust" ... what does God have to do with money unless ... unless ... God IS money; think about that.  In "money" we trust.  makes more sense, does not it?

I do not want to be wealthier; I do not want to be poor. I know what I have is as much to do with being a white middle age male who just got education because that what we do,  than any effort I put forward. I wish i could say I think people earn mass wealth because of their sincere effort, but most often this is not the case. it isn't the case for anyone who says it is; if they deeply knew they earned it on merit only, then they wouldn't be defensive nor would they care to take so much. the defensiveness to protect it frequently has to do with a deep seated, often unaware, sense that they took what they have unjustly and want to protect others from it, the others who they perceive think as they do. surprise, not all want wealth. as for those who hate the wealthy deeply, that hate is rooted in a deep desire to have what the wealthy took;resentment they were given the access to it, or just took it. its the flip of the same greed, hatred and delusion. then there are those who really don't want to be involved in it or who keep the money moving without hording, assuring it is given back from the source---those are few. in the end, we face our hate, greed and delusion; what a waist of time.

fact.......the senate and congress  will help any wealthy person or company....but will always screw the middleman and poor.....and then blame one side or the other about what dont pass ...to keep every american unfocused on the real problem...which is they all are corrupt voting every single one of them out not just a few here and there it wont solve nothing..but change the blame onto the other side...

(Many are taught in the public school by the NEA that profit is evil.)


Really, from what crack-inspired nightmare did this comment come from?


I never taught that, nor did any teacher I ever knew......only that greed and selfishness are not good character traits as opposed to kindness and compassion that are


Jesus taught the same thing, BTW.

It's not profit that they speak against....it's how they make the profit that is the concern today.  There are people that create businesses and create jobs....these people (like Doctors, definitely not Lawyers) are indispensible in our society.  Unfortunately, there are toooo many other people making millions of dollars by sucking the blood of the American citizens just because they have been entrusted to positions that allow them opportunity to do so (or throw a silly ball around).  Who can be a fan of that, with the exception of the profiteers ?  These people offer our society nothing,  yet they command all the same privileges as those that have earned their millions.  So, though the "work ethic" theory may have been good 30 years ago, it's been infiltrated by "scum of the earth" and no longer holds true.  Sorry, but it needs to be said.  As far as slavery, if money was never invented, I can assure you that many of these millionaires would have zero skill to barter with, hence would end up as slaves themselves.  Easy to deny in these times, but true none-the-less.

Mathousla's first year annual salary was 15 cents.    Depending on how old you are surely your salary was less. 

While all this rich bashing is going on,  please tell me,  How many of you ever got a job from a poor man.  Poor is a relative term anyway.

People don't start business for the sole purpose of providing jobs for others, like the Soviet Union seemed to think,  Comrades.

The Primary factor in gaining wealth and prosperity is a strong WORK ETHIC. 



If you don't figure that out, then your not going to make it anywhere.

Obama's Class Warfare...........promoting socialism.


Socialism,  for those that would be slaves.

I worked as a school teacher for ten years...my starting pay was $18,000 and I was a single parent raising a kid by myself. At the end of the year, instead of getting a $5,000,000 bonus for being a greedy screw-up, I got a coffee mug saying "You're A+". That's it.


But when I meet one of my former students, now grown up, and they thank me as someone who changed their life for the better, I thank God I was a teacher, whatever the pay scale.


Can you imagine some Wall Street millionaire being told what I get told....? Never gonna happen.


I'll take my life, thank you, and leave the envy to others.....

Hokeydude, er, Hockeydude777, your words smack of anger and belligerence, exactly the way most millionaires act.. You say you grew up a cop's son but due to your own brains you created a company and made millions.. Good for you, dude.. I'm happy for you but what you and your 'kind' (that being stuck-on-themselves, power-happy, self-made jerks) don't seem to EVER understand is not everyone of us is made the same way.. If we were, we'd ALL be billionaires, right?
Some of us are meant to be artists or school teachers or just your common everyday assembly line workers.. What the hell is the matter with you? You talk like your so entitled but the fact is, without those employees of yours doing YOUR work FOR you, you wouldn't have a pot to piss in, just like the rest of us! THEY are the ones that make your money for you and you act like an ungrateful ****, which you are, of course!
Do you think because a person is fired or let go of their jobs that makes them stupid or bad people? You damn money-hungry, greedy CEO's are never happy with what you have, you always want more and the trouble is, you get, you get it by firing people or raising your prices even when people are having a difficult time just making ends meet! And then you blame US ordinary people when we complain that you have too damn much and tell us to  'go out and get it for ourselves'! Fool!
Will you kick your kids out on the street because they desire to do something else with their lives then follow in YOUR footsteps? Like I said, not everyone is hardwired to be a big inventor or an actor or rock star! Not all of us have the know-how or talent to make the 'big bucks' but you ACT as though we should!!
You kind of make me sick.. Too much is never enough for the likes of your kind.. If you had your way the only people that deserve to be living are the filthy rich, of which you obviously count yourself among..
I hope you and yours remember what happened to little ol' Marie when she said 'let them eat cake'!

The responses on this article are really amusing. They smack of jealousy, envy (one of the 7 deadlies), and an entitlement ethic that is really sad. I was a cop's kid ... started a biz at 22 and grew that biz from 1 emplyee to 1600 employees through hard work, resolve and a never give up mentality. So, this boy was never born with a silver spoon, but ended up a multi-millionaire. And I had employees that worked for me for over 20 years. They grew with the company, had families, homes, cars, sent their kids to college .... why, because I didn't piss and moan about the gov't, the entitlements of the rich?? I worked and lived the American dream. It is totally still out there ... but I doubt any of the folks on here will live it because you are too busy complaining. Grow a pair and put it on the line and do something worthwhile. So .... what have you accomplished today??? Go out and make a freakin difference .... wah, wah, wah, woe is me ... you ought to be ashamed of yourself!!

Massachusetts .... hmmm, isn't that where Romney is the head of affairs?? He has more business knowleadge of any candidate .... want to change the economic culture? Vote in the guy that has brought the most change to a totally lefty state with his great biz knowledge and experience. Or .. stick with the current administration and watch the country and economy go further into the toilet!! Not much of a choice when you really think about it!!
