Rich guys are bad, poor guys are good?
Never have I said that.
Rich guys have power dumbass.


I think power has a tendency to corrupt people. Does it corrupt all people, no obviously not everyone.

Thank god you don't have any money because you would be a poster boy for my concerns.

And if your compliant is unaccountable billionaires and pharma, look at the Purdue family. Held accountable.
Rotflmao, accountable.
How much jail time?
Your definition of accountable is quite hilarious.


That said, I think all drugs should be legal.

They should be in jail for telling doctors and paying doctors to say the drugs they were selling were basically harmless.

This is galactically stupid on all kinds of levels, absurd blanket statement. There are plenty of wealthy people who don't have power. Ashamed at myself for even responding to this kind of stupidity but hey, everyone has missteps from time to time

Wealth equals power.
Money talks.

Wow you are stupid.
Probably stupid enough to think you are wealthy. We have alot of idiots who think that in this country.

More idiotic blanket comments. Wealth equals power. Care to elaborate on that? Wealth can certainly provide more avenues to OBTAIN power but it most certainly doesn't automatically translate to wealth.

Like anything else, who the hell is defining "wealth"? There are people who would consider even YOU wealthy, Walter. I certainly wouldn't consider me and the wife excessively wealthy, but maybe some would. Happiness and freedome is really one of the true markers of wealth and to that end, the frothing-at-the-mouth crowd like howie, Broke (how ironic!!), and the rest of the Ignore crowd are the most poverty-stricken people I've ever encountered, even more impoverished than homeless folks

What's wealthy to you, Einstein? This should be good...

Yes some would. I think 9 figures is where wealth starts to translate into serious power although it could be a bit below that, maybe half of 9 figures.

I consider myself as well off, definitely spoiled and advantaged, mostly due to my wife. If I was the primary bread winner then I would be middle class living on a good union wage.

Our wealth is probably a bit over 7 figures, approximately half of which is liquid and half is our home,my wife's business and pension/retirement accounts.

I am very lucky, I pretty much fucked up most of my life due to anxiety and other issues. Thank god I somehow tricked my wife into marrying me.

I didn't even get to this part of your post before I replied. But I think I laid out what I consider real wealth. It's basically if you are leaving 9 figures to your heirs.

Are you unaware of the huge financial penalties the Purdue family paid? Only jail time is accountability? The goal posts shift so fast, it’s hard to keep up.

Thank you for stating the obvious. You fucked up your own life. You want to tear down those who didn’t who became successful. They just got lucky. You’re as good as them. Envy is much more destructive than greed.

Are they broke and living in their car?
Give me a fucking break.

They are still set for life without working, OMG, the sacrafice!!!

You just can't make up your utter bullshit.

Ok you pos.
I am not envious, I don't care if I am rich.

I just want everyone to have a shot at success, it has nothing to do with me.

I honestly don't care if I die, if it wasn't for my kids I probably would have already ended my life in one way or another. That's the truth.

So to you wealth is defined by overall net worth. I guess I was thinking more along the lines of earning ability and annual salary or household income. Regardless....

Your net worth number for wealth of 9 figures is absurd, infinitely beyond 1% folks and yet still does not guarantee any power whatsoever. You have still not offered any indication or validation that wealth directly translates to power in any way.

8 figures- 10 million is the wealth number that puts you in the top 1% these days. Wally's number (9 figures) narrows it down to 5000 families in the country.

Yeah, no power whatsoever in those top 5000. Good call.

Everyone doesn't have a shot at success? Get up, go to school, then get a job, get married and live a good life.

It ain't exactly rocket science in my way of thinking.

This is the closest I found.

“Wealth can certainly provide more avenues to OBTAIN power but it most certainly doesn't automatically translate to wealth.”

Pretty far cry from claiming “no power whatsoever in the richest 5000 families”. Maybe I missed something. 🤷‍♂️

They are accountable to the law just like everyone else. They paid billions in fines and their family business worth billions had to file bankruptcy. If you think the laws are bad fine. It’s not an example of a lack of accountability. They were prosecuted and penalized to the fullest extent under the law. Government czars do much worse with no accountability whatsoever.

OJ murdered his wife and a waiter and he’s still living without working and golfing every day.

they aren’t worse off than me!! It’s not fair mom!

You don’t care if you are rich. I agree. You care that you are less rich than others. Their success and achievements make you feel bad about yourself. This is one of the oldest and most common human attributes. Something we all must guard against.

a big government, cradle to grave nanny state, big corp monopoly, socialist state gives the fewest people the chance for success. Rags to riches is a uniquely American phrase for a reason. And it’s not because of the Great Society.

Sorry you feel that way. Your life has great value. It’s never too late to achieve your dreams. Being comfortable is the enemy, and we all fall into that trap. You’d be happier if you spent less time worrying about the lives of others.

Who? With link please. There absolutely is power among those 5000. Most of them finance the left- that's right, the Dems are now the party of Big Business. People that have 100 million plus don't care about taxes, they'll game you, hide it move it and worse yet, they'll use it to manipulate politicians who have clout...big government swampers...Schumer, Pelosi, McConnell among them.
