    RE; “Guilty Rich.”
    'Guilty rich' won't have to feel guilty for long | Reno Gazette-Journal |

    The rich do not feel they have to share their wealth with the poor out of guilt but out of thankfulness and gratitude. No millionaire got rich on their own. They owe their wealth to Americans that supported their products or services. Without someone to buy their products and services they would not have wealth. They share their wealth by paying their fair share of taxes and giving to charities, etc but not out of guilt but appreciation and giving back to the society that made them wealthy. Why so people less fortunate give when there are disasters? Like the woman in the bible that gave all she had. Jesus said; “to be this followers, go sell all your belonging and give to the poor and come follow me.” Americans have always shared their wealth and that has made America great. “Geed for something for nothing” is not the norm for Americans.
    Islam teaches it’s followers to put aside something to give and they do not have to be force with taxation. They do it because they have been commanded to do it and so have Christians but they don’t always follow the teaching of their Christ.
    In case of disasters Americans come forward and give out of compassion and because they know it is the right thing to do.
    The wealthy is grateful and thankful and they generous give back without guilt. The writer of “Guilty Rich” is way off base.
