People detest the wealthy because they have done what they won't, that's work your arse off, take risks and be content to work 100 hours a week until you make enough money that your money now works for you.

I could call the RNC convention the Romeny convention, the implication is still the same, Romney is the titular head of the event being held there. The yacht is hosting a party for Romney and his exclusive set of top donors. Thus it is a "Romney party yacht". The fact he would utilize such a yacht brazenly flying a Cayman Islands flag, knowing his issues of offshore bank accounts and tax sheltering there, shows how out of touch with the average American he is.

Why do people always try to go after me personally in these threads?
I quite agree, and people shouldn't. Of course, "scumbags" aren't limited to those greedy for money, some are greedy for power, and some want to force everyone to follow an ideology or religion. The threat comes from many sides, we can't focus on just the rich.
I'm tired of people willingly ceding their rights, their privileges and their lives to these greedy scumbags
Well, I don't know precisely what you're referring to, but scumbags are human and there's usually something to be said for any human. That's why we have defense lawyers.
and the part that bothers me the most? The people who defend this scum!

If someone told any American that they could avoid all vehicle and gas taxes if they registered their car in Missouri, wouldn't they?
It's not illegal, it's not even unethical because there is no moral requirement to pay more in taxes than you are required to.
So is the problem that it "looks bad?" Is the objection that Romney has found a way to keep money for himself instead of giving it to the government? I can see how that would be an easy call.
Forgive me if I'm misunderstanding the motives, but this seems like an attemt to stir up envy or jealously. Please correct me if needed.

This is news?
One of them is going to be the president, and their positions aren't identical, so I suppose a case could be made out for voting for one or the other. - C -
I just can't see an educated person supporting either Mitt or Obama
