Published by Outskirts Press, Kill the Rich, by author RickthePoetWarrior

Denver, CO, February 16, 2010 --( In Kill the Rich, published by Outskirts Press, author RickthePoetWarrior offers his own modest proposal for social engineering shortcuts to save the planet from the unhealthy influences of the rich. His tongue-in-cheek approach encompasses all of the means they use to amass the majority of the wealth despite being the absolute minority of the population.

An apparent cousin to the down-to-earth members of the current Tea Party, the Poet Warrior exposes the rich’s profit hungry activities through drug companies, the insurance industry, internet and cell phone service providers, and every other questionable financial piranha to the hard working man. Lawyers, of course, are fair game under his sometimes sharp, sometimes witty eye, as are multi-national oil companies and, as he says, “the gas they give” him.

Rick tells, as an example, of the “Six Million Dollar Senior,” the nursing home resident being kept alive by every conceivable medical device just so the insurance companies can rake in greater profits from the average Joe’s premiums while the man in that little old body hooked up to tubes and zoned out on an overwhelming supply of medication has long since surrendered any quality to his life.

In Kill the Rich all is not doom and gloom and conspiratorial mayhem, however. Rick’s ultimate message is an appeal to the basic human value of treating others with dignity and respect and using a moral baseline to measure one’s behavior. Could the rich benefit from that advice? Rick thinks so.

Kill the Rich is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
