The Awful Rich
Have You Hated on The Rich Today?
Sure, you need to brush and floss because the government has not yet identified daily dental care as a human right. Be patient, The Supreme Court will soon find it in The Constitution. Afterward be sure to take time from your busy mundane day to direct heartfelt vitriol at The Rich. We all benefit when some of us hate on the rest of us: it's the American Way.
Scientific research suggests rich people have a caviar gene in their super rich DNA. Setting them far apart from those of us struggling to earn a living, this unfair advantage deserves to be hated.This scientific fact verified by clinical research cannot be ignored and can be something that makes you burn with intense jealousy/hatred whenever you see a horrible rich person walking their expensive customized dogs at the Rich Person's Park.
Rich People Have Money, We Hate That
They actually have money in the bank, sometimes in more than one bank and sometimes they even have multiple checking accounts. It takes a lot of nerve to have money in these horrible times when the rest of us have to go out and earn it. Every day when you show up at your job and then have to drive home in your personal car, stopping on the way to pick up government cheese, be sure to squeeze a little extra bile into your endocrine system in honor of the Rich People who spent all day laying on the chaise lounge eating food that they paid for.
Rich People Buy Stuff That You Cannot
Deep inside Super Rich malls are stores where they can buy stuff and you cannot. You can't even walk past: guards making more money that you will shoo you away with a little white glove and a condescending "harrumph."
Wouldn't you love to have a Cadillac or a yacht or a digital nose hair trimmer with Bluetooth? You can't. These things and other jealousy-inducing products exist far out of your reach. In the world of rich people you are just a utilitarian spec on a balance sheet that the rich people are too busy to read because they have people to do it for them. No lie.
Rich People Just Lay Around Doing Nothing
You think it's a lot of work to earn a living? Rich people have no idea. A rich person will have, like, 10 people on the payroll just to boss around the less rich people. The super super rich have guys sitting around shoveling paper money into the fireplace on cool mornings. The extra extreme rich don't even get out of bed in the morning - they have people to do that for them.
Yes, it's all true as far as you know. And it's all good reason for you to crusade against these kinds of people who collude to ruin your life every day. Hurts, don't it?
Rich People Have Offshore Accounts
Resting comfortable on the sleepy Island of Cayman are oodles of 'offshore' accounts containing money. This money should rightfully be yours and the governments. It belongs to all of us and we deserve it. We need to get in our row boats and paddle to these islands. On the way we could round up all the rich people lounging on the beach and have them make us fruity drinks in their diamond encrusted juice machines.
An offshore account means that there is less money for taxes. More taxes are things that should be paid by rich people so you can pay less taxes. Whatever problems you have in your life can be solved by rich people paying more taxes. The climate will stop warming/cooling if the rich pay more taxes. Charlie Brown will finally get to kick that football if the rich pay more taxes.
Rich People Hate You Right Back
To Rich People you are something getting their way. If you would simply disappear they could get to their cucumber sandwiches at the country club that much faster. Your miniscule 4-cylinder car contrives to obfuscate traffic routes that should be limited to limousines. Your simple existence confounds their immense brains and makes their purebred Pomeranian hide under the divan in the sitting room.
Rich People want to Manipulate You
At the end of a long day lounging and tanning, Rich People congregate behind platinum security fences. They sip wine from bottles with corks. They chuckle heartily at plights of Common People. After unwinding with cucumber sandwiches they get down to the serious business of oppressing you and oppressing me. Participatory oppression represents the true calling of almost all Rich People. You might believe you are moderately successful but your modicum of success arises from manipulation artfully donated by Rich People from near and far.
Step outside your door: you will find yourself in the domain of Rich People. Everything belongs to them. You are just along for the ride. The only thing you completely control is the TV remote and that's made by poor people in another country oppressed by Rich People so it all works out in their favor anyway.
