@shuttersparks I'm not sure why it has to be one or the other... Can't we just agree some people will abuse, drain, and steal from the system no matter if they are rich are poor, just as there are many rich and poor people who are good. We have to stop reducing everything to such simple terms IMO.

@freemo Yeah, it's true. I don't agree fully with the meme. It's the last three lines I was going for but that's not apparent when I post the whole meme.

@TruthSandwich The last bit is definitely true. It's exactly what propaganda outlets like the Koch brothers' "Americans for Prosperity" pushes in political ads I see constantly.


The problem isn't "the rich". Wealth is not bad. Poverty is bad.

The problem is that some people -- many rich, but many just would-be rich -- see their path to wealth as being paved over our bones.
