I'm not sure I agree with the racial connotations but it has become EVIL to be successful here in America. Essentially, it's a liberal shift in thought. What you get out of the government and others with limited effort is more regarded than actually doing work and earning your keep.

not evil to be successful

evil to be successful by cutting wages of middle class workers to increase profits at the top

You either need to broaden your horizon, or find some new acquaintances because I've never experienced such a thing.

Why does the 1% have a bad connotation to it? As if the other 99% were short changed when Jesus/Allah/Morgan Freeman/Easter Bunny were giving out all of the money?

No, they worked hard for it.

You're implying that a majority of the country believes successful people to be evil. I'm telling you that you are wrong.

I'm not the 1% and I don't consider them to be evil, nor do any of the people that I know. At least, no more or no less evil than any other strata of the country.

How can the amount of wealth you have automatically make you good or evil?!

If you're in the bottom 99%, you're good and if you made more than $516,633 in 2010, you're automatically evil? How can anyone even accuse someone of thinking this way?

Jesus said it's easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven.

Jus' sayin'.
