Don't Hate Rich People Just Hate The Ill-Gotten Ways They Make Their Money!
Fraud, Tax Evasion, Toxic Derivatives, Executives Owning Their Boards & Compensation Committees Awarding Themselves Outrageous Pay For Unprecedented Failure, Stock Options That Repeatedly Have Their Strike Price Changed Until They Finally Hit It Big. The Sordid List Goes on...Americans Don't Hate Rich People, Only Crony Capitalism That Enriches A Few And Impoverishes The Majority!
Not all are crooks. A fair share are. You have to blame the pols too that do not regulate the financial dealings to insure honesty. Most pols are bought and paid for by the crooked thieves you mention. I too have no problem with anyone that makes money honestly. But, be careful looking to thieves in government to go after those that pay them off.
