"That is a socialistic mindset. Taking something away from the person who has worked hard and give it to someone that has been lazy, unwilling to work and give it to them. If the people who think this is such a wonderful story, they should move to Cuba and see how wonderful a country that's run on socialism is. A high percentage of rich people are rich for a reason. Because they busted their butts to get where they are."
That's a response to the article.
I have worked for unimaginably wealthy people. Even though they are so over the top and materialistic, I would never suggest that they should give up what they earned because somebody is homeless, or because there is disparity in society. By the way, I know they have family foundations and many generous charities they give to, which amount to more than you or I will make in a lifetime.
I just wince at the suggestion that the guy with the Mercedes should "have a little less" so the homeless guy can "have a little more".
When I think of Van Jones standing at a podium, frothing at the mouth, and screaming, "Give them the wealth, give them the wealth!!!!" , it makes me worry.
I have a young liberal friend, from time to time we attempt to discuss our differences. He says, "We all have to help each other." What he means is, "Somebody has to help me." He is working very hard to get through college. I'm currently trying to find a decent laptop for him. Are you going to help me find a laptop for him????
