    And why should I be angry with my fellow man if they did better than I did this past year?

    Anger has nothing to do with it. The good of people is the question.

    And there are serious questions about this 'wealth'. If it is merely profits, money made, that can be considered 'riches', but there is a nuance between that and 'wealth'. I will leave looking up the definitions to those with brains.

    The primary reason they want to get rid of the estate tax is to ensure the wealth gap remains.

    Better question: Who said that you should be angry with your fellow man?

    You missed the the part where the OP denegrated others for 'wiping the asses of the rich?'

    Your hatred blinds you.


    LOL
