    I don't dislike wealthy people, just dislike how they don't understand how privileged they are and especially when they brag or complain about they have it 'hard'.

    How about you try sleeping on the ground, or sharing a room with two other people then come back to me ...

    Only when they manipulate thousands of middle- and lower-class workers, whether domestic or foreign (or both), while they refuse to give even a minuscule percentage of their profits to help said workers, who are often treated unfairly and sometimes inhumanely. *coughcoughwaltonfamilycough*

    I can't say all wealthy people are like that. I mean I am wealthy person for life, and I met some people that are wealthy and rich. Those people are not the bragging types like some others.

    Nope, I don't hate them one bit. Their friendly as hell if you're on their good side. Their just normal people........ with an ego boost

    Nope, unless they look down on me. So I'd rather judge them on their personality or attitude than on what they have.

    I don't hate them per-say, but I just can't help but shake my head at some of the things they buy. Like massive houses when it's only them and maybe their spouses. In my opinion, I think thats just a waste of good money.

    Only if they're annoying, or rude or snobbish, or mean.

Now I am not condoning this guy saying you should get the death penalty, but when your reply is that the electric chair would be lined with diamonds? Come on kiddo.

    Like many other people, I do not dislike wealthy people. What I do dislike is the type of opportunities they are afforded simply because money brings influence and power. Because mommy and daddy are person A or person B, instant ticket to Princeton, instant six figure job etc etc etc.
    What I further dislike is the amount of attention given to wealthy people by media outlets like TMZ, E! and the Bravo Channel. Let's have a bunch of rich white women get together on a show and complain about how the silverware doesn't match the napkin art for their dog's baptism after-party. I don't care what people say ultimately their goal is to have money,whether that be filthy rich, have enough to live comfortably or to just make sure the lights stay on. Money creates power, influence and notoriety and the more you have of it, the more of those you have.

    I don't dislike them unless they're complete jerks about it. I have a couple of clients (Who are quite good friends, actually) who are very wealthy. They pay me and everything, but the only problem I have with all that is when they tell me all about the million dollar real-estate they bought two states over, and then proceed on to tell me how they can't pay twenty dollars for a service they could be paying fifty or more for at a different provider.

    It's great being wealthy, but it's not great being cheap, is what I'm getting at.

    Creating sentience is simple. Accepting it, however, is harder than it looks.

    Sounds like this should belong in the Debate forum, IMO.

    rich =/= assholery. if they're a douche and their justification is "I'm rich so begone from me, peasant" then yeah, i automatically have to dislike them. but i've never actually met any rich/wealthy people who act that way, so my bourgeois pride remains intact.

    this might be one of the dumbest threads i've ever read on this forum

    and considering how many posts of mine are in the "debate forum", that's speaking volumes.

    e: holy christ that was before i read past post 10

People who have a dislike for rich people either had bad experiences with rich children, or they were raised/taught to hate the rich people because "businesses are evil". That's why the whole Occupy Wall Street dilemma was so ridiculous.

    I don't think they should be taxed more. They or their relatives worked for wealth, like everyone else does, and they achieved it. Unless they won the lottory or robbed a bank; if that is the case, they should be considered as lucky or should be put in jail, respectively. Think about it, if you won the lottory, would you want your taxes to be increased?

    Oh and this thread is stupid honestly. for real. Money shouldn't be something on how you decide someone. There are some really snobby, bratty and overall shitty dirt poor folks out there but we assume as a society that the dirt poor deserve respect because well, they are living shitty. Honestly I have more respect for the snobby rich person because hell, at least they are going out and EARNING their dollar instead of sitting on their *** reaping unemployment benefits for months on end.

I don't see all this hate for the wealthy people (the '99%' protests) I mean, they worked for what they have now. Not sit on their lazy buts and demand to be given money by the government.

    Well, in my point of view, everyone is equal.
    To some of them, they are superior.
    I know a kid in like 3rd grade that thinks he's better than everyone cause he's wealthy.
    AND I DISLIKE IT.

    some think I'm wealthy (***** please, I'm hundred and seventy thousand dollars a year away from being minimum "upper" class.), but I do admit to being more well off then others sometimes. (Though with all the shiz my mom has to do for those houses, we're getting pretty low in spending money >3>).

    So point and case, I'm looked at as the guy who's wealthy, and I feel sorta bad about it sometimes.(So much so that I always end up paying for small foods for everybody whenever we go places...). Perhaps its because I have a bunch of friends who are just above the poverty line and such. (At least I think. I don't directly ask for this stuff, its stuff you don't do unless they bring it up. >3>...)

    So no, I don't dislike wealthy people...what I dislike are the "get rich quick" kids who beleive screwing the other person over is the only way to get money. **** maybe it is at that level of income, but I'm a goodie two shoes, and I don't like that stuff -3-;;...I'll be a freaken alder when I get older, I swear. lol

    EDIT: err, scratch that, I am one hundred and TWENTY thousand dollars away from being Minimum upper class. Why did I write 70? lol

    it really depends. if they are willing to give some to people and/or animals that need it then i think they are great people.
    but if they think they are better than everyone and they are greedy then i think the aren't so good... D:<
