It is pure class envy to look at what other’s have and say you are “entitled” to the same. Remember the 10th Commandment, “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.”
