The Poor Rich Man!

Oh- there's nothing to see here!

You might skip this hub altogether.

This hub isn't the fluff you're probably looking for!

I may have pointed out a flaw with Capitalism. If you are an honest businessman then God bless you.

If you are not an honest businessman with an adherence to the Golden Rule then may God, Allah, Karma "lay hands on you"!

It was pointed out recently by another hubber that I may not be as sensitive to the "rich" as I could be. I have to admit that I was unaware of the plight of the rich and powerful. I realize that these times can be hard on the rich and powerful. After all they are "outsiders" to most of us. There numbers are few. Sure they control the stock market. Sure they control our courts. Sure they control the legislature. Sure they control the presidency. Sure they control the military. But- does anyone think it's easy to displace indigenous tribes that live on lands that contain resources valuable to the rich and powerful. Don't people know they shouldn't live on this land that the rich and powerful want? The rich and powerful don't really want to kill so many people and move them off their land. But the R & P realize that some people just don't want to move.

Jim Rogers: Socialism for the Rich.

The Poor Rich Man

I’m so sorry that you’re rich.

And have so much to pay!

What a burden that must be.

Please let me take your burden away!

You have to heat such a big house.

You even have a high maintenance spouse.

I feel so sorry for you and your cronies,

Having to fox hunt on your polo ponies!

It must be hard for the help to help.

Allow me to ease your pain!

You can have my refrigerator box.

I’ll try to ride your gravy train.

I never knew you had it so hard.

All that lawn to mow in your yard!

And the help require so much pay!

I’m sure you provide each with an IRA!

Your time is so tight.

You eat out every night!

I hate to see you in such pain!

Please let me relieve you of your ill-gotten gain!

It must be hard to live there on Easy Street!

Where all the money in the world can’t make the ends meet!

I’ve been such a cad! I feel like a fool!

I’m farting in my tub and you’re peeing in your pool!

If the truth came to light,

You steal worse than a thief in the night

I’m so sorry that you’re rich,

You sorry son of a 8!tc#!

Naomi Klein: Disaster Capitalism

A blithering idiot posted this comment on a recent hub:

"when I read welfare for the rich, I got some throw up in mouth and stopped reading, The rich pay 95 percent of the taxes in this country, they build the business that gives jobs to 95 percent of this country, they grow business that 95 percent own stock in thru one form or another, CAPITALISM built this great country, why don't you and your silly friends go play elsewhere."

Oh really- you stupid rhetoric spewing fool!!!

It's really sad that that an idiot like you has to defend them!!!

Educate yourselves! Watch the videos on this hub.

Gather information!

Make intelligent decisions!

Unplug from the matrix!

Hello Micky Dee, while I'll admit I benefit from having a well to do family, it drives me crazy when people talk about capitalism as if it were God ordained. There is no justice in the rich being able to use and abuse others simply because they own material things, businesses, and virtually most of what is out there. Someone venting about five times on my Recession rants hub aked me if I would want people telliing me how to run my business. I guess I don't feel that owning a business would make me God or all knowing, therefore I should be willing to not only listen to others, but obey laws that make the world a better place for all of us. Thanks for a thought provoking hub. I also agree with the last video that it is not education that is causing the great divide between the rich and poor, but politicians favoring the rich and providing them with still more benefits. I have a Masters Degree; however, our republican governor cut the budget for substance abuse services so drastically that there are no jobs in my field other than entry level low paying jobs that would not support anybody. If I had not inherited my parent's home, and did not have well to do family who assist me as needed, I would be homeless at thie point, in spite of my Masters Degree. It is not about being competitive, working hard, or being educated, it is about already having money in the first place. Ronald Regan did much damage to our country; I never voted for him, and regret that he put practices in place that have all but destroyed the power of the middle class. (: v

God bless you Valerie! I'm curious though- What do they actually do? I mean beside shove some of their money here and there for a while. Do they roll up their sleeves at all? Is one of them in Iraq right now? Did they actually "build" their estate? Have they actually "created" something on their own? And if they did, as in a piece of art or a house of cards or something- did an outrageous amount of "free time" and money help?

I have one more question that needs an answer- is the entire right wing from another planet? Alien? They are frickin'; frackin' alien to me. The poor rich man indeed.

Oh- and where is the left wing from?

Where the hell am I from and how do I get back?

Why do these morons suck up? For the trickle down?

Ronald Reagan set off the destruction of the middle class when he allowed the busting up of unions. So Republicans and Democrats- thank ray-gun economics. Remember that Ronnie also said that trees cause pollution and catchup was a vegetable. He was a bad actor.

Micky this poetry got me smilin' - it is sad how many of the rich just aren't happy with all that slosh - so sad. I remember a bout two years ago one of the German billionaires jumped in front of a train because he went from the billions to like 400 million or something. That to me summed up how perspective can be lost. I don't begrudge any one making a buck but when you are taking advantage of innocents or involving Government corruption, that is a big no no. What was that Beatles song 'Money can't buy me love"..

Some people say that "capitalism" built the country. Well SLAVERY built the country! A lot of our fore-fathers owned slaves. A lot of fore-mothers too. And- slavery in the US wasn't the "cuddlier" kind either. These jackbutts still like the idea of squeezing the acorns of the poor.

50 Caliber 6 years ago from Arizona

Mic, I have insider information so I gotta leave some of my thoughts at the door. Dalai Lama stated the most meaningful root of it all, "education, as well as hard work", is key and the key to another way of life.Naomi Klein, contributed what struck me as history repetitiveness that is taking place right now in ways many don't recognize. The little oil leak in the bathtub of life is softening the ground for changes to be built upon. Many want to know why? has nothing been done. Well something has and is being done, it's just not recognized as to what it is. Softening of the ground to produce and force more to be poor, as in Paul Krugmans' analysis of "decompression" in his statements of the "Great Depression" and the fact in order for it to have been, at all, there had to be a "compression" take place.

Being rich, what is it? I mean there is rich and there is filthy stinking rich. Old money, New money. Too many ways to define rich. New Money is money that is obtained by the method of the Dalai Lama, old money is the money obtained by hand me down, even if it is like Valerie getting some as she needs it to keep on keeping on as she makes new money. Not knocking her or it, just my observation. Bush, an example of old money, he was a punk who did shit for his money. Same with the Kennedys', yet had two been allowed to live and show what their kind of money could do, I'm just one, but I will always believe that a new shadow would have been cast upon old money. Someone else believed it too, they were so strong in their belief they killed them both. The topic of this conversation would have been moot in another reality of events. I live on new money, as my family was dirt poor with none to hand down or even loan. Had I kept on keeping on with my education and hard work I would be paying taxes for me as well as for the employees of a diverse set of businesses in California. That ship has sailed and I got off before it did, now an old fukk, there's no getting back on, I don't want back on any way. So much to say on this topic and I'll just bow to your view as it reveals many truths of "rich" and allows many refuge to be victims of a terrible good for nothing country, that has left them crippled in so many ways it's a miracle they can draw a breath at all. Many who don't have the energy to make it to a voting booth, or utilize their ability to contact their elected officials if I were to look up the email addresses and send it to them. The ability to act as victims and type responses in favor or rejection of a position that a hubber such as your self is not hindered, go figure? As well I've been told that it is their duty to Not vote or get involved in any way due to religious beliefs, go figure? By inaction their hands are clean of all wrongs that the government commits, I cannot figure. Whether or not you and I agree on this or other topics strikes me as irrelevant to whether or not we remain friends, it's about keeping ourselves involved in thought over the outcome of the well being of each other and those who cannot or will not help themselves or others. Much Love and Peace, 50

Your most humorous line...

"I’m farting in my tub and you’re peeing in your pool!"

That makes you at least middle class as the very poor probably don't even have a bathtub.

This recession brings out all kinds of thoughts that might otherwise remain under the radar. I heard a lot about the Great Depression from my mother though she was just a child at the time.

I think that the BIG difference that has taken place in our country over the period of time between then and now are all the entitlement programs that have come into being. Teenagers having babies out of wedlock get money from the government to help raise those babies. Back then...the families took them in, probably scolded them royally!...and hopefully lessons were learned. Even in my school years one did not see pregnant teenagers running around and schools having day care programs.

All of that being said.....the babies NEED all the help they can get. No easy answers!

Schooling used to matter. In this recession, engineers, architects and highly schooled people are out of jobs as well as the high school dropouts. So that is no longer a guarantee of keeping a job.

Corporations used to honor their workers and reward them after years of service with a pension upon retirement and the "gold watch" that some received or at least a fond farewell party. Now-a-days, heaven forbid that the company has a bad quarter.........they INSTANTLY think of letting people go. All about money and no longer about people!

Heaven forbid that one gets to be in their 40's and even worse....their 50's. Despite knowledge and years of service...corporations would rather get rid of them and hire new younger workers whom they can pay less money.

All about the bottom line! This is turning into my own rant. Sorry!

Keep voting though. Our only hope of changing things!

I can tell that your heart is in the right place, Micky...thinking about and caring for others.

In the Great Depression, people patched their clothing if it got worn or had holes in it. Also made other clothes out of "cast offs." Now some people purposely buy designer clothes with holes in it. Go figure!

Mick, it's been a while. You might be interested to know I've been working with former USMC personnel towards a very interesting opportunity. We have two former Marines within our Holy Truth Veterans Housing Program who came up with the initial idea during one of our morning devotions.

Now, on to your Hub. The common flaw in most people's thinking is they believe the Bible says,"Money is the root of all evil." That has never been the case. The actual statement involves 'the love of money' which leans towards the subject of false gods and idolatry.

As an example, I've seen many little churches focus everything they had towards their vision for improving the lives of others while huge multi-million dollar ministries act like they couldn't care less for the postion of the ones society has dumped on.

Point? It isn't so much the money itself as it is the motivation involved when getting it and what will be done with it after you receive your blessing.

Yo UG! Bro! It's good to see you here. You're right with your comment. My father used to say a church got colder with every coat of paint. There is no institution that can be considered civilized unless we are reaching out to do some good. The Golden Rule is the LAW! It's not just a good idea.

God is not visible. God is not tangible. People can see God in things, their personal lives, etc. But everybody will have to agree that God is "unseen".

Our brothers and sisters are solid and visible. When we see them we need to reach them.

America has too many distractions. Great country. The best. Yadda yadda yadda! We have tractor pulls. I'm not talking out on the farm. I'm talking arenaville. Basketball, soccer, football, ball, ball, ball, movies, ad nauseam. America is so entertained America can't hear God. All America can hear are distractions and political idiots!

There is a division between the Rich and poor of our world and it's been since time memorial. It won't change, as long as money is worshiped. The greed for Money will remain. It's not how much of it you have but what you do with it. I totally agree with you Micky about the worship of money by many of the rich. Maybe one day money and stuff will not play such an important role in the lives of people. I am always delighted when I read of some rich who really share their wealthy in a very generous way with charities and other philanthropic ways. My hat is off for those few, but for the most part the rest are in it for themselves and how much more they can pile up and buy all their toys and play their games. Very great hub Micky, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Peace

I certainly value you input as always Saddlerider! You know how it is- we're people. Every religion has a form of the Golden Rule. We are our brother's keeper.

Jesus said, "I give you this law to be above all laws!"

A nice look at class division. I always find it interesting when someone with wealth feels inconvenienced by those who are doing without. Life would be so much better if poor people didn't cause problems for rich folks, and why don't the poor pull themselves up by their bootstraps? It is an interesting attitude, and you have examined it with great humor. Thanks.

help ie,jobs(WPA)my mother and i would have been on the street, but the government has changed. I believe with all my heart that President Obama is a good man, but he can,t do it alone, if i had my way, every democrat and

every republican would be voted out of office and new people come in who really cares about this nation, or better still, TERM LIMITS, now back to money, this is getting personal, but i was married to a very wealthy man

for five years and that was the most miserable time in my life ( that,s a hub i should write about ) so money can,t buy you love or contentment.

I, as no, was not politically aligned. Before then as now I've been a truth seeker. I remember Mondale taking him to the woodshed and all Ron could say was "there you go again", just rhetoric. That's what I remember.

But I dislike both parties. This world is getting rockier and people are slaving. Our air suffers. Our water, our food. Medical care is expensive.

The Golden Rule is largely forsaken with the loudest people just insulting. Anger seems to be the mood for too many. Americans are doing Americans more harm than terrorists from other countries.

That's not "my" common flaw. I'm pretty common. As a matter of fact I'm one of America's "throw-away people". I've been tossed out a couple times.

Nice sayings. I guess I don't want a damn thing out of this life including all the money in the world. I hope nobody wears a suit in the next world. It's hard to work in a suit. I hope there is no reincarnation. I don't want to see the "pyramid scheme" again. I pray the Lord's Prayer as I'm told by Jesus. It's a prayer for all denominations. It's asks that God's "kingdom, God's will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven". But I don't expect leaders do what's right. I doubt that anybody in a suit can do what's right.

I went to see what you're all about. I saw your "Obama Demonizes Insurance Companies Hub". You're part of the "right wing I hate Obama let's sabotage everything he does party".

Insurance companies need to be demonized. I've had disappointing experiences with this corrupt insurance fraud scheme thingy. The first goal of insurance is to not pay out they have no scruples about sending in their lawyers to avoid paying. Do common people have lawyers?

You are "independent consultant manager". Your riches depend on the wealthy. The insurance companies rely on those with the better paychecks.

Make all those riches you can and get on that camel and see if you can go through the eye of a needle!

It's not that we don't feel sorry for the rich and their empty soulless offspring, it's the way the obtain their wealth.

What bodies and souls lie mummified in the wake of their search for the almighty dollar?

How many of us throw aways and our seed lie awake wondering how we will make it through the next day? While "Buffy" and her ilk get shipped off to yet another rehab vacation.

What idiot feels sorry for the rich? Hell they need to pay more taxes God only knows how much of their assets lay away on some island untouched. Love this hub

'' I saw your "Obama Demonizes Insurance Companies Hub". You're part of the "right wing I hate Obama let's sabotage everything he does party".

WE ALL HAVE A RIGHT TO AN OPINION IN HUBBERS LAND. You’re wrong on my politics.

Why is it that liberals seem to inject '' hate'' and ''racism'' in their comments and discussions?

Obama won the 2008 election and the Democrats won a super majority control of congress. The American people voted, that's how our government works.

The republicans had no power to do anything as long as the Democrats had 60 members in the Senate. The only power they have is a filibuster and that’s not a sure thing. You said ''right wing I hate Obama let's sabotage everything he does party".Your comment was the Dem talking points.

With the signing of the Finance Reform bill, the government now controls 60% of the economy. In 19 months, President Obama controls banking, student loans, mortgage industry, auto maker industry and healthcare. They still haven't figured out how to get people back to work, fix the economy and reduce the deficit. It appears that the Obama administration has their priorities mixed up

No Jon. You and many others want so badly for our "democracy" to work. YOU are WRONG. This country works for the people it's supposed to work for.

First off I'm not any name you want to interject like "liberal".

If you're the opposite of liberal you're still an idiot if you think this country works.

It works for the poor.

I never voted for Obama and I won't for the next FRAUD you propose.

This country of America has never existed. It's money that goes around the world killing and displacing people for their resources meanwhile stupid intellectuals like yourself have never WORKED for a dime. Get out of your suit and go to work.

YOU CANNOT WORK IN A SUIT.

YOU CANNOT DIG A GRAVE IN A SUIT!

You and this country are liars.

You have no intention of working.

I'm 60 years old and I'm tired of the lies people like perpetuate.

This country works for SUITS.

George Bush either helped kill 4,000 people in the World Trade Center or he helped cover it up.

Obama, Bush , and you are the same.

A very powerful hub Micky and strong comments to follow. Keep on speaking out loud , it's more like you this whole world needs. In my eyes all the money in the world does not always bring happiness, then I suppose that I am not and never will be a materialistic individual. You really are an inspiration Micky and keep up the good work. Take care and God Bless.

If all the wealthy people in each and every city would turn around and put into the schools, soup kitchens, shelters, youth centers, free clinics, job training programs, drug rehab centers (free ones and open some if there aren't any) of their own cities directly, instead of some charity organization or some out of country far away place, before they do those charities and far away places, what would happen?

You know I might just put this on every one of my hubs, just because it is a great idea, if it would be seen and done by all those rich wealthy people out there. ha ha ha the south pole may have to melt first!

Great hub and I did have a great time reading it :D you know how to say something serious with humor! `imi pono aloha oe

Yo Sage! The more folks hoard, the more crap they can. The more planes they can fly in, the more they can amuse themselves. But a slow train is coming.

''This country works for the people it's supposed to work for. you're still an IDIOT if you think this country works.'' ''I'm 60 years old and I'm tired of the lies ''

MICKY, puzzling statements, can you clarify so someone can understand where you're coming from. Please without calling just an ordinary guy some undeserved names.

PEACE AND LOVE

Millions and millions are suffering needlessly. DIGNITY is what the SUITS take most of all. I am for the poor. I get weary about the rich and the rich "supporters" suppressing. I get weary of the ultra rich and the ultra rich "supporters" CRYING about how poor people don't work, they want a handout, etc., when the rich - hey - they don't actually "WORK". Now if SUITS and the ultra rich would like - hey - come on over. We'll have a WORKING CONTEST. I will show you what work really is.

"With the signing of the Finance Reform bill, the government now controls 60% of the economy".

All this control was in the works long before Obama was in office. It did not matter if the Dems or the Reps got in office it would have been signed... In my humble opinion, unless we get rid of the party system this government will be controlled by who ever is in control of it now. And that AIN"T any President. We got puppets carrying out orders of an invisible few who are really in control. This is a Capitalist Social government with the Caps in control, who they are. should be what people are finding out. That is my humble opinion! and it ani't worth 2cents, so there! Aloha :D
