That Money Could Have Gone To Make Someone Richer!

The saddest thing in the world for me is to see is a poor child receiving a free lunch at school, knowing full well he or she is taking money straight out of the pockets of a billionaire. The next thing on my list of anger and depressing inducing crimes is hearing about someone, anyone, being released from prison. Every time that happens there is potentially an empty bed with no prisoner to warm it. And, if you happen to be an investor in a for-profit prison, like me, that means a smaller dividend check. Itís kind of cruel to let someone out of prison while many of us are counting on that check, donít you think? As everyone knows, there is an endless list of injustices happening to the wealthiest of us. Senior citizens receiving heat in the winter, food stamps, care for the disabled, wars un-fought, and donít get me started on health care for those who canít afford it.

John Stossel, a good and caring man if there ever was one, has shown over and over again how great the poor have it in this country Ė and what a scam theyíre pulling on the rest of us. Did you know the average poor person in the US not only has electricity but also has a refrigerator? Poor my ass. And did you know that panhandlers make $80,000 a year. Thatís what John Stossel heard, and I believe him. Now, putting aside the fact that the poor crashed the world economy and it took us months to make that money back, how can we be expected to continue to create jobs for those who want to tax us? Itís hard enough to concentrate on making money when my servants keep coming back from the store with horror stories. ďThere was this old lady counting out pennies for cat food. It took forever in line.Ē Just where the hell did she get those pennies? From people like me, thatís where.

Now, luckily itís become easier to buy our most profitable possessions. Politicians and judges. It does put a lot of fun into oneís life and almost makes up for the poor robbing us blind, but some days it seems like itís just not worth it to be incredibly rich. There is talk of increasing my taxes by three percent. Three percent! If it wasnít for the fact there is no one else qualified to take our place and handle all this wealth, well, we would just quit.

Now of course the solution is right out in the open for all to see. Stop taxing corporations and the wealthy, and stop all programs to help the needy. Just how much more of this are we supposed to take?
