The rich didn't get that way by being stupid. Tell me, would you be willing to pay twice as much for your new car than your neighbor just because you have a higher paying job than he does? What about all that extra time/money you spent in college and away from your family, working long hours to make more money, while your neighbor partied and blew all his money on beer and cigarettes? Should your neighbor get to take your money because he makes less? Greed is in the eye of the beholder, pally.
