  • Maybe they should stop mooching, then. All this time and you can't figure that out? It's so simple.
  • And when the ruling classes get too cocky, and let their distaste for the "poors" dictate their policy, it never ends well.
  • Funny, considering the poor employed people are the ones the rich mooch of. The rich and the unemployed poor all mooch off the working class. Fark the rich moochers with the poor moochers' dicks.

    It does if you make sure to disarm the poors and then provide enough bread and circuses to keep them distracted.
    You could keep them under foot for centuries, even.
  • Yeah, the British equivalent of college Republicans still call them 'Plebs'. This becomes a problem only when you're a top party official and your boss is trying to shake the rich snob image.

    Of course, if you really screw over the Germanic mercenaries you've recently hired to "keep the peace", they may decide to come after you...
  • Meh, I just roll up my dark tinted windows and ask my driver to move on
  • Spartacus! Spartacus! Spartacus! Spartacus! Spartacus!

    That'd be true if the rich didn't provide them with all of the tools, factories, and materials for them to use in their work. Then, they buy their goods.

    Yet the poor still complain until they get handouts. Maybe that's why the rich look down upon them.
  • Too many are, I am sick of hearing what you "deserve', for the most part you get exactly what you deserve. At my last job we had a Guatemalan who started as a janitorial assistant, couldn't read write, or for that matter speak english, he busted ass during the day and took night classes and the next thing I knew he owned a janitorial services company that serviced 5 major buildings downtown, he was the one that finally got my ass moving on setting up my own business, I told him how I envied his success and he basically told me that if I wanted to work for myself then I needed to get off my lazy ass, stop making excuses and just do it, I did and now I can afford to close the shop for a week and go volunteer to help out with Sandy without worrying about cash.
    contrast that with a secretary we had, se was paid well, was very intelligent, but had no self control at all, she ran up so much debt grabbing junk she didn't really need that she ended up declaring bankruptcy twice in the 15 years we worked there. Once she came to me with a sob story about how her car had broken down and it was going to cost so much to fix that she couldn't afford groceries that week, I felt sorry for her and gave her 100 bucks and a ride home, on the way she asked to stop at the store, she came out with some cheap bread, lunch meat, milk and two cartons of cigarettes (for her and her husband, a four day supply she said) I wanted to strangle her, I smoke (pipe and cigars) but when I first opened my shop I went without until it became profitable (about 3 months) I could have probably afforded to buy some earlier, but until I was sure my savings would outlast the new shop cash outlay imbalance I held off so I knew I wouldn't need that money.


    /ya I know csb, wehatever
  • I love it when rich people forget that they're not the one's actually working anymore and think that they're money magically appears in the bank account. I don't know how it happens, but, it seems like many rich folk think that the people that are actually collecting/making the money for them don't deserve to be paid. In their eyes, these employees are merely parasites on their bottom line that are preventing them from being even richer.

    Money has the ability to turn anyone into a sociopath.
  • I love how the Koch brothers worked so hard to get where they are!!
  • I think Mel Brooks discussed this in the "documentary," History of the World Part I.
  • You walk around saying to treat the poor as humans, and that they deserve to live with some dignity, you're gonna get your hippy ass nailed to a tree.

    If only the rich could figure out a way to cut out those greedy moochers entirely.

    Don't use logic on fark, it will get you nowhere.
  • That's an unavoidable result of having everything in life handed to them on a silver platter. People who never have to hold a real job in their lives, do their own grocery shopping or pay their own bills will inevitably be out of touch and look down upon everyone not similarly situated.

    Probably not, but well-off isn't all that difficult to pull off.

    Simply put, that's stupid. Who's going to make all the things? Now, if we could find a decent way to get rid of the full-on moochers and keep the ones that work, that'd be different. Unfortunately, that'd just drive the cost of labor up.

    Well, duh. The rich are patently evil and deserve nothing. That's well known. Unless that rich person was Steve Jobs. He's basically all that is good and holy to farkers.
