What I was saying, and you misread (you're very prone to this by the way), is that there's no need to act on impulse and insult people when they're not in your face.
First, I didn't tell YOU to shove it. I said it to your take from the rich give to the poor philosophy. Unless YOU are your comment, then you can't be insulted by it. You can't read intent on the internet, nor do you know me enough to know my intent. Actions matter more then intent, because you can see action, while intent is usually in the mind of the "intender". I guess we will see how the mods feel about my comment. Who knows, maybe they'll find it insulting to, or maybe they won't.
And you telling me that I'm prone to misread, doesn't make it so.
My personal success, has a lot to do with it. If my personal success has nothing to do with it, then everyone elses personal "unsuccessfulness" also has nothing to do with it either. I'm clearly showing that you can come from nothing and no education, and a poor family, and still make it. How does that not have anything to do with this conversation?
If you came to me and told me about your idea of taking from the rich and giving to the poor, and described it just the way you are here, I'd say it to yourself too. It's not on impulse. I clearly disagree with you, always have, and always will. No impulse about it. I don't agree with distribution of wealth, period.
