The Blamee, your right, the first and most American are the Native American Indians, and yes we did kill most of them and steal their land and forced them to be christians or else they were considered savages. They believed more in our Country and Earth then any Today American. Yes, they are mostly alcholics and druggies due to the fact that they were made to believe they were not worthy or welcomed. Someday they will have their land and buffalo and springs and tippees and earth back.
They are who I respect and honor. If only they could see how powerful they truly are.
Well, I think this re-frames who we might want to call "job creators." And it might re-frame our thinking on immigration. Most of these folks have created significant numbers of jobs, so they have more than paid back anything they were given.
VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AND MAY GOD BLESS THEM ALL AND ALL OF YOU.
Ohhhhhhhhhh goshhhhhhhhhhhh damm them for taking their piece of the capatalist pie.
You another thing they have in common. They either didnt attend The Regressive Liberal indoctrinating higher education scholastic system or did not obtain liberal arts degrees that so many do and wonder why they cant find jobs after graduating.
And gee The Leader Of the country along with his party, thinks its entrepeneurs responsiability to keep their incapable spending jones fix fueled.
Why would anyone want to play that game?
WELL,once upon a time.......
that is what would happen in the OLD U S A. NOT NOW!
Obama,his mindless cronies,who expect the world owes them a living and a phone,, vilianize anyone who is successful, has money and the entrepenurial spirit.
LIKE so many other good things in this country,they ARE and HAVE gone the way of T REX!~
Getting tired of these rah rah rah articles about millionaires and how everyone should work hard chasing after carrots to be one when there can ever only be a top 1%. Does not matter how much money it is there can only be that 1% at the top. How much more money that group has over the other groups is a function of taxes. There is nothing else to put a limit on how much an owner or CEO (friends on the board) wants to pay themselves. Pay your taxes or pay your workers one of the two. There is no option that lets you keep you money besides printing out more money and giving the "new" money to the poor people.
#1. Luck/chance at Bloomingdale's. Any market she created took away $ from another designer.
#2. Food. Any market he created took away $ from some other food businesses.
#3. Five-time Mr. Universe, seven-time Mr. Olympia champion, movie star, and a politician.
#4. Sold gift wrapping paper and started up a business with her parents money more then likely. Plenty of marketing firms out there already.
#5. Actually helped to come up with something useful.
#6. Hispanic grocery store. Plenty of grocery stores out there already.
#7. Supervised a crew of 50 underpaid hispanic workers, earning only a little more than $60,000 a year. Somehow managed to get a line of credit for yet another concrete company. I wonder how many concrete companies we already have?
"The rich get richer and richer. The poor will always be poor and poor. Here, do it right and nobody can stop you" I call B.S. coming from the person that has less then 1% of what most billionaires have. You will never catch them no matter how much concrete you sell or what you invest in. They can invest in the same things, earn the same ROI, and have way more money to earn with versus you. The only reason you got to supervise 50 workers is due to you knowing Spanish and you were underpaid for it too.
Most on this list just did not make anything "new' and just took money from other companies. Maybe they offered better services or a cheaper products, but nothing revolutionary or groundbreaking. Even if they did come up with something revolutionary they do not deserve over 20 billion for it. Cannot even spend that much, you run out of stuff to buy since you already have everything you could possibly want that money could buy. This country had a 90%-70% top tax rate from 1940-1982 and we did just fine. Growth and interest rates were better when we had a higher top tax rate since our government is not forced to print out more money as often borrowing it from the Federal Reserve. Higher taxes force more money back into the system year after year, it takes longer for the system to run out of money. If only people did not expect something for nothing and savings/investments to gain in value over time, then our failed system would not need to print out money year after year after year after year...if only.
