  •  When I read magazines that talk about silly things (8+ / 0-)

    like how to upgrade your house on the cheap, showing items I cannot even afford used. A gallon of paint? Maybe if we save for a couple of paychecks.

    It's so funny too. The 1 percenters think we envy them their money--we are just jealous because they have all the money and we have very little.

    As if....

    I am pissed because we bailed their fatcat asses out and they sat on that money and did not and still do not reinvest it into our economy while busting unions and getting rid of benefits and lowering wages.

    I don't begrudge the wealthy their money. But I do begrudge the assholes, their greed and nastiness. If they happen to also be super rich while being a greedy asshole, that's still on them.

        That's just for rich yuppies.
