    SO you feel that when a billionarie dies they should just hand you their money? Some people have and some people don't. Get over it.

    It is INHERITED. By definition it is unearned.

    without the "parasites", there would be no wealthy people in the USA.
    Well you come up with your own idea and start a company that becomes rich and see if you still have the same attitude then. Grow up.

    I don't see anything about permission in the defintion of parasite. Another flailing miss.

    jealous much?

    when you rant about heirs as you do its obvious you are upset that others have more industrious parents

    are your children parasites?

    You are ignoring the key factor here: children who inherit money from parents are not successful by virtue of that fact, they have not achieved by virtue of that fact,nor have they have no excelled by virtue of that fact, they did not earn anything. They were simply lucky by the accident of birth.
