Any chance there'* 5 million pedophiles, cop killers, and serial killers in this world we could do away with? That would be a good place to start...

It'* because of the upper class? No. There is always going to be a 'lower' class of people and you can't blame the higher class citizens for the shortcomings of the 'lower' class. Everyone has the same opportunity to 'make it' and those who don't make the right decisions or don't try as hard can't blame those who HAVE made it for their failures. Furthermore, why should those who have made it have an obligation to help those who aren't in many cases trying as hard as they can to help themselves. Everyone 'owes' everyone something it seems like nowadays. Just my two cents.
bull....so your saying that the snotty brat that gets millions from his mommy and daddy cuz there rich has the same chance of having money like a kid from a middle class family???? Answer that for me!
Well, not from the get go, obviously, BUT what you aren't expecting the rich brat to not take it? Then we'd all be calling them stupid. The fact is that we're given our opportunities. The rich kid may get millions thrown at him, and a established business to boot, but he could blow it all on a lawsuit. On the otherhand, we have plenty of "rags to riches" stories to prove that middle and lower economic class citizens have made it big in the world. We get what we are given, and everything else is a combination of luck and work ethic. I think you are looking for excuses if you blame the upper class for where we're at, sure they could give more to the poor and yada yada but the fact is there will always be people who end up on the bottom-whether their own doing or bad luck. We are responsible to help them out, but not responsible for their situations.

that is true...i'm just saying that not everyone gets a level playing field...its more like a steep hill for some, and a downhill grade for others.

I could argue for hours about the upper class, lower class opportunities thing. Basically, it'* crazy to say that everyone has an equal opportunity in life. That just doesn't happen. Capitalism is harsh ... I'm not saying I'm against it, but it'* the nature of capitalism to have a winner and loser. Not everyone gets a fair shot in this culture.

who can honestly argue with that statement? it'* said we all have the same opportunites mabey it'* just saying?

I do not believe that "Rich" people have to share anything with anyone "IF" they do not have it in thier heart to do so, I'm not angry at anyone, I just see it as simply "Playing the cards I was dealt" Personally I don't give a damn about being rich cause they have the same problems as broke ****'* as well,

Only and IDIOT would think money could even start to solve all problems (it helps though)
