Letter: Arrogance of the privileged

Posted

To the editor of THE EAGLE:

I see people on "Fox News" who have had every advantage, every perk and every privilege in life, coming down on people who have to rely upon food stamps to make ends meet. Many of the food stamp recipients are the working poor, some of them working two or even three jobs to try to make ends meet.

You would think that those who have had every privilege dropped into their laps would have compassion for the working poor, but they don’t. Instead, they subscribe to a capitalism of selfishness theory. They think that everybody is capable of becoming a business tycoon.
