Okay, I admit that. People who own less, and sell less, are more rich.
"Everything", "more", "less"... What's the difference? Cheesy

I asked you, "Don, are you saying no one in America can become wealthy if they're poor?"  And this is your answer?  Did you actually read my question?

From poor countries to all rich countries obviously. You really are pretty base aren't you.


Of course they're trying to get into rich countries, especially the U.S., because that's where they have the best chance of improving their economic status.

Dumbass Don.

You're disappointing Ruby, but I shouldn't have been disappointed because of what we have on this forum already.

Burnsred and ahhell are the only one's with IQ's above room temperature. What motivates them to entertain the rest of you assholes, I'll never be able to figure?

So far:
Three who are varying degrees of mental illnesses.
One gooball who gets himself in trouble daily by saying stupid things
One angry witch who's been smacked down by some authority figure.
One lonely old man who will even try to get conversations going with the worst mental case.
One extremist.
One angry prick who tries to emulate a snake for being nasty.
A pig who's rage got the best of him so he had to leave.
And then ahhell who is surprisingly quite normal??

That's what you're going to build the LP party on?

She asked you whether you thought poor people in America could get rich.

You didn't answer. You responded to the question by saying some people are born rich. She wasn't asking if people were born rich or not. She was asking if you thought people born poor could become rich.

You proceeded to call her stupid.

She's stupid because it's a stupid question obviously. I don't hook into that kind of lowbrow bullshit. It that cranky little bitch wants any attention from me she'll have to learn some better behaviour.

Yes, what they are actually doing is trying to move to countries where they will be more free. It's not all about getting rich. Some want religious and political freedom and don't care at all about getting rich.

People that are born rich can become poor too Donat. Consider that.

Of course if rich people wanted to become poor, they could move to some country where being rich is considered a sign of evil crimes against humanity (unless you are in the government of course) and have the government make them poor...

Exactly Opposition.  I'm guessing Don is just a troll.

Smackdown by some authority figure?  Yep, he's a troll.

Right.

Saying "the rich own everything" is hyperbole, but it's often used to foster resentment and "class" warfare.
Usually "Kill the rich and take all their property for The People" is what follows.

Was that your intent in using it?
