I will not be surprised at all, last year when the hurricane was devastating Louisiana, the then President of the USA Barack Obama was playing golf, Am sure these rich dudes have a helicopter waiting to carry them wherever they want and they have insurances on their property so they don't seem to care at all.

They seem to forget how the elites got guillotined during the French Revolution. I'm just making it clear, there's nothing bad enjoying the fruits of your efforts. It must however, be enjoyed discretely. In our country we have the concept of "evil eye". Envy is a powerful force, even if you don't think of it in a supernatural way. They may not say it but there would be people that would be very happy about your downfall. And they may help bring it about if they were envious enough. No one has ever died out of too much modesty.

The elites ensured that would be impossible this time.  The ONLY country on the planet that did stand a chance was America because of it's gun laws.  That time is long passed though the Elites have tanks, jets, subs, battleships, nukes.  Those that would fight for freedom have rifles... it is long over debt serf.

I wouldn't blame the rich. Most of them have worked hard to earn whatever they have. And they pay taxes more than the poor (I am not sure whether the poor pay any tax at all). Most of the government revenue in the form of taxes and levies come from the rich. So we can't ignore their contribution in nation building and in the running of the government.

I agree. And what can they do, than help? They will not go to put out the fire with golf clubs. It seems to me that some of them will donate money to help those affected by these fires.

This is pretty much my stance as well.

When I said elite I meant simple "rich" not "elite" that some people refer to as some shadow government of sorts. When you said tank, jets, subs, I believe you've got states in mind.

Agreed - so long that they can't rig the system in their favor. Work must be rewarded.

So what can they do about it?  Thoygh its burning,  do they need to wear their suits and be a fireman.  We will let them be who they wanted to be.  Besides we cannot tell them what to do and what tod do with there money it's not ours.  Are we omplying that instead of playing golf they should help to subdue the fire?

If Barack Obama was playing golf, then it is not good. He was the president of the United States, and he was supposed to take care of the citizens. It was his duty to get to Louisiana immediately and supervise the rescue efforts. But he chose to play golf instead to flying to Louisiana. I would never condone someone doing this. And this guy got the Nobel Peace Prize. Seriously?

It is normal for any society. It has always been. Not everyone is able and wants to work a lot to be rich. Working day active businessman may exceed 12 hours a day and never ends. Just one part of the day they are active, and the other part is their mental labor and work with your phone. Why should they help the poor who work 7-8 hours a day with two days off?

Totally agree on that. Of course it is not THAT easy, because not everyone can the same chance in life. Some are born into this and some just have nothing and have to really fight hard, to succeed. But often, it is really just a personal choice ... most of the people just have no ambitions and are fine, with their work in a supermarket.  Which is totally ok. But they shouldn't to angry about others, that earn more because they worked harder.

Even if they work for only 4 hours a day, I don't see the need to help the poor. They are already paying the taxes (both direct and indirect ones) and giving employment to a lot of the poor people. The so called "poor" on the other hand, never try anything to improve their skill set, and in most of the cases they are dependent on the government handouts.

I am sure, there are exceptions. But yeah, the truth is, you have today way more possibilities than in the past. Today you could e.g. learn to code by yourself ... or create a blog ... or learn how to trade stock / crypto.

This is a powerful image and portrays a lot that is happening right now. Rich people kind of live in a place this is secluded from the rest of us. They have the money to change their way of life into something that is similar to a fantasy. No problems whatsoever. They just have fun and spend a lot that will satisfy their wants and needs while the rest of us burn in problems and other life wrenching situations.

I would want to believe that not all rich people on earth are thone's in this picture. Some rich people use their money and resources to help and further humanitarian movements. I still want to believe yhat there is still humanity in the world.

Don't always have the thought that the rich always spend money to have fun and do not care about problems around them. They deserve to get pleasure with the results of their hard work. And also we do not know whether they have donate some of their wealth for the environment and social activity such as natural disaster, poverty and etc. Just positive thinking !
