You know what I would like is to see his face in a mugging.

Surely he's just trolling for ratings?

"You work hard, you _might_ be stinking rich one day."
Key word, might. Like Lloyd Christmas says - "You mean there's a chance"?
Not that you will be stinking rich, but that you might be.
I guess I should work because I 'might' get a paycheck, and I 'might' get money to buy food and I 'might' get money to pay off my mortgage.
Not that I should, but might.

If I had the kind of psychotic obsession required to be one of the 85 richest people in the world - let's say I found myself as the 80th - I would probably be intensely unhappy about the 79 other people ahead of me. Like, I wouldn't consider myself a well adjusted person as is, but I would be hard pressed to think of 79 people I have intense envy of. It would probably be hard to come up with five people that cause me anguish on a daily or even weekly basis. And while I know and know of people that are poorer than I am, I fit the definition of poor and hate playing the we're-all-middle-class-if-we-aren't-on-the-street game.
Normal people and people within, like, the first three standard deviations, are not consumed with this intense desire to get more money. I used to do a lot better than I'm doing now and even then, being paid still below average wage, I felt like I had far more money than I knew what to do with. But then again, I wasn't born into unfathomable wealth like the majority of the 85 wealthiest people in the world were.
Oh, and "The American Dream isn't dead" is the new "God isn't dead."
Just one more piece to the puzzle. For those people, what really matters is not that they win, but you lose. Hence this guy's unabashed enjoyment at the stat. You see, all those people are losing to him. And there's still people above him that need to be conquered.
Something to think about, when you hear promotion of policies to help the wealthy. They want you to lose. Please remember that. Their end game is to have every cent, and you be in the gutter staving to death. Only then will they be satisfied. It's not the actual money they are after, it's your destruction.
Who is going to hold the poor accountable to the rich, asks the voice of poeTV's breakout troll of 2014.
BS is just sore because I shot Jesus and now every time he looks at his stroke magazines all he can see are the cocks.
Hooker: You're really, really bad at not becoming immediately polarized, aren't you? I'm no fan of the rich, mainly because they're people and I'm no great fan of people. Especially people who see their retaliatory aggression as justified because after all, it belongs to them. I'm not trying to change your mind or anything, I just want to let you know that you're a shitty person for the way you think.
Obviously if I were rich I'd be off flaying the flesh from the bones of my servants on a whim and plotting the perpetual torment of everybody else because, why not, right?, but instead I'm sitting here, poor as you and letting you know that you're an asshole.
And if pointing out the hypocrisy of vilifying people because they might after all be vilifying you is trolling: I guess that makes me POETV BOSS TROLL AAA #1!!!!!!
"Hahaha, you all are blah blah blah and assholes." -The language of a troll
I say this for everyone else's benefit, because you know exactly what you're doing.
Actual studies have shown that poor people will more willingly turn on each other than on the wealthy. It's a bottom dog animal pecking order reflex. This is probably why the rich can be so outnumbered on a planet where tens of thousands of people die every day of starvation and not somehow be immediately culled.
Nature works against the poor.

Bald male Canadian Ann Coulter is about as boring as regular Ann Coulter.

"I think it's great that one person is emperor of the world. It's a celebratory statistic. It encourages people to know that if you work hard, you might be emperor of the world one day."

I know, conservatives always talk about liberty and freedom, yet they all seem to long to live under a monarchy.
A theocratic feudal system where net worth is your metric for how worthy you are to rule over others, pretty much.
Or rather, theocracy for the masses. Hedonism and excess for the rulers.
