    By itself? It isn't "bad". But when wealth..affords power..

    Then it's real bad.

    Power should be concentrated in the hands of homeless drug addicts.

    How do you separate the two?

    P.S. I'd like to keep the thread along the lines of why is it bad? (not at at you Sallow but going forward)

    It's bad because progressives loathe and covet those who have more than they do...

    It's "no fair" to them...

    Being rich isn't bad, buying political power, however, is about as bad as it gets.

    Being "rich" is only bad when they arent paying their "fair share".......or 90% of their income to progressives for bleeding heart social programs of their choosing.......

    Nobody should have wants when others can provide for them...........lol
