The problem with the above statement is what is
meant by 'my money'. The issue is not simple at
all. We all agree that 'hard earned money' are,
yes, yours. But a lot of money are not like this.
There millions+ high bonus 'salaries' which many
people (so called corporate elite) are 'earning' 
for mostly attending luncheons and gala receptions.
THis money is itself a theft from hard earners.
