Quote:It turns out the rich really are different from you and me. They drive like entitled jerks.

They’re middle-finger-pointing, ride-up-your-trunk-bullying, outta-my-way motorists.

That’s the authoritative word from researchers who keep track of this sort of thing.

Three studies over the last five years show that people driving expensive cars were more likely to cut off other motorists and less likely to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks.

“This suggests that wealthier drivers may reflect adherence to ethical codes geared towards maximizing one’s self-interest, often at the expense of others,” says psychologist Jeremy Boyd, formerly of the Human Development Program at the University of California, San Diego.

In other words, says Paul Piff, a University of California, Irvine, professor of psychology and social behavior who conducted a motoring study of his own, “money makes you more likely to exhibit the characteristics of being a jerk.”

Money doesn't change anyone, it just reveals the inner asshole you always were because you no longer have to be nice.

Nothing worse than some ass in a luxury SUV riding your bumper while talking on their cell phone when clearly there a million cars ahead of you.

Having children and not being able to pay you bills has the same effect.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Most people driving those are making payments, the bank owns everything, house, car, etc and have a bizillion dollar student load debt to boot.
They have plenty to be angry about.

More demons=worse behavior in public (imagine the private!) Doesn't mean fully demonized (fallen) but could be. The bulk of wealth will be from serving the negative energy extraction side so inflicting pain/misery/damage to people. Being honest.

I like to say I act the same way regardless and nowadays I tend to. I might actually be nicer if I have more money in my pocket to tell you the truth...at least to the locusts. It's like war...I mean it's not really war but it's like it. Power to tread on snakes (fallen) and scorpions (demons; also can be matrix angels at a certain point). I have special rules for the fallen even though they're demonized.

This is what society has come to. You must have more and more or you are a failure. Those of us who are old enough to remember the 60s and 70s will remember that we didn't have all of these fancy gadgets. During the 60s and before the moms were able to stay home because money wasn't being spent. No electronics. No extras. They bought only what they had to and what they bought wasn't designed to be trashed and replaced in a year. We had less but that made life simpler and us much happier and healthier.

I do know the more money people have, the more out of touch they are.

I chose a life in poverty with eyes wide open, I guess.

This happens to me constantly and I just chill and stay put because if they have to get ahead of me just to slow down behind the car in front of me because there is a long cue of cars and NOWHERE TO GO, then they can do all the work while I sip my coffee and enjoy the scenery. People who think they are entitled because they have money will have a rude awakening from me.
