    It is sick.
    i'm not threatening any rich people. i just said that that guy deserves to step in flaming poo for comparing his "plight" to that of the Jews in Nazi Germany. and on Holocaust Remembrance Day, no less. if his Barker Black Ostrich Cap Toes get a little soiled, well, that's just the way it goes in Nazi Germany.

    These guys just tend to live in an entitled world where it's very uncomfortable for them to not get their way as it happens so rarely. They tend to not know how to process it in any way approaching a realistic perspective.

    i guess perspective is everything. i do find it hard to believe that this dude's perspective is so out of whack that he compares his life to that of a Jew living in Nazi Germany, though. i guess money really doesn't buy happiness.








































    but it does buy an XKE.

    A truism I figured out about life is that success simply breeds the desire for more. The brain does a great job in getting used to and eventually dissatisfied with good things and a terrible job with bad stuff.

    Expectations that seem crazy can easily become normal and most people are never satisfied. It's why counting your blessings is important.

    So yeah, for those who have it all, a minor discomfort can be all consuming.

    The parrellel is the dangerous undertone of SCAPEGOATING one group for the use of politcal gain by another.....

    does that really need to be explained...

    how come they dont blame the "stupid and ignorant" for their plight? butsomehow its "the evil rich"?? ... this sounds very much like what happened to the Jews.. only the blind cant see it

    Is there something wrong with your keyboard? I could recommend a good replacement.

    sure... taking huge risks and creating jobs ....thats what they do.. seems like you only respect losers who sit home and complain and take no risks..

    I never got a job from a flea ridden hippie with no cash...those "realistic" type you wax about.. who sit home and collect my tax money.. they have the "perspective" Oprah feeds to them as they sit on their ass..

    Of course they do that, yet that doesn't invalidate my statement or have anything to do with my statement at all really.

    One can both be spoiled and a good business person.
