Plenty of those CH/BP storeowners are likely not worth $5MM and yet they still manage to scowl at you for walking into their store :D

I happen to know two people from Pittsburgh and both are jerks, therefore all of Pittsburgh (and the state of Pennsylvania) are complete idiots whom we should all stay far away from!

#StupidGeneralities

Thank you for reminding me how to think.

Those two people that I mentioned are ones that I know personally, and that happened in my family.

My feelings that I am describing here are a result of many anecdotes that go around.

And here are another two:

#1 There's a guy in CH who now owns many stores, (I am sure all of you from here know who I'm talking about) who told one of his suppliers that if he were to stop supplying store x, he would begin buying double what he used to buy.

#2 This is a guy who gives plenty of Tzdakah, but when it came to registering his kids for day camp he asked for a discount ::)

I just know just one, but nicer, warmer, and funnier than anyone.

I am glad to be wrong, but let me first clarify what I meant:

I am not saying that rich people do nothing good. Obviously there are many that do tones of charity and other good stuff.

However, these very people also get into nasty fights that ordinary people don't usually get in to. My logic behind this reasoning is that it is aggression that gets business people rich, (although they prefer to believe that it's brilliance).

In this sense, these sharks who get rich through business, (as oppose to artists, and entrepreneurs, who believe more in their product or service than the money it brings them) are no different than those who get rich through stealing: They both get rich through a method that puts them into a class of their own.

All rich people that I know are manipulative bullies who believe that the world is out to get them. 

Their inspiration to get rich is usually a result of their defense mechanism that compels them to trick the world before the evil world can trick them.

They thereby reinforce their distorted image of others, and begin to believe that, the world which they have now easily tricked, is dumb.

/end rant.
