You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
Honestly he's one of the few people left in our society that I personally look up too as an inspiration! Not only has he made himself the richest man in the world, just starting from scrap out of his garage, but he's given more money back to needed causes then any other person ever has!! I think the greatest legacy you can leave behind is to be a truly caring and giving person!! We need more people like him leading this world into a better future!!
[mainly cause he is giving his money away but hey I'm still gaining]
Another 2.5 million years and I think I got him beat!
Bill Gates started from scrap out of his garage?
His dad was a lawyer, so it probably was 'expensive scrap'.
It is that first million that is hard to make.
Sam Walton is spinning in his grave the way the Waltons are flaunting their wealth while abusing their employees and hiking the price of their goods just to be featured on Forbes. That is the problem with Americans idolizing individuals who don't give a damn about them as people, but are supported by government favors and hand outs to keep them rich. Thse government fgavors and hand outs are tax payer dollars, your and my money, and we idolize a bunch of neo-Confederates like the Kochs who are buying up legislators as if the House of Congress is a Five and Dime. Doesn't it seem ironic that a lot of immigrants are risking their lives and freedom to get to America, and are fighting to stay in America while Forbes hold up a Mexican billionaire who is robbing their country and forcing them to flee for opportunity in America? That should tell all of a lot about these billionaires.
Koch Brothers are mentally ill to me. I mean 80 billion between them and they felt the need to go on TV and tell us that the poor in America are rich compared to the world? Well If you compare us to Bangladesh maybe so. But comparing us to Bangladesh is comparing folks chasing rats for dinner in garbage dumps to folks on food stamps.
The idea is why did Koch feel the need to say this? Did he feel threatened that someone might get a few pennies from him? I can't imagine his family and his wife.. I am guessing they are scolded for spending anything.
I had a VP at work who scolded his wife at a party for buying a dress without consulting him first. He made me get three bids for a $28 sign. Mentally ill.
