    Helping to solve your own problems.....I have to say I am kind of shocked at some of the hateful comments from some people towards people that are rich. Also I am puzzled by how some are selective in who they have decided to dislike, like the Romneys......So If I am to understand it correctly, it is fine to dislike a rich republican, while the same people don't have any problems with rich people like the Kennedys..;)

    That's about it. Or the Kerry's or Pelosi's or Clintons or any other rich Democrat or movie star. Yep, that's it.

    When Kerry ran in 2004 and as you know, he married a rich woman, did not hear any complaints about that in the media.....:)

    How does wanting to end the Bush Tax cuts and treat the capital gains as income equal envy and hate?

    Oh but they're different! They are , are uh, very rich, too. Hmmm. Obama will be giving them awards soon, I guess.

    Some are very selective in who they have decided to dislike, at least some are consistent...:)
