    They don't take huge risks. It's against the law and convention.

    He is actually right. Very few venture capitalist organizations risk more than a small % of their available capital.

    One can both be spoiled and a good business person.

    A good example.

    One can be both stupid or smart / liberal or conservative.

    These two sets of attributes don't have much to do with each other.

    Not sure if serious.

    A billionaire losing his billions is almost unimaginable under the law and permitted economic practice. There was a vice president of some company who now works at Target or something but he is noted as an extreme anomaly. Even in the worst case scenarios entail retiring above the $30,000,000 threshold that designates the super wealthy.

    If a billionaire could lose his billions, then the entire economy could explode at any given moment.

    In the past, that was a very real possibility, and fortunes were always rising and falling in America.

    Even giving away billions of dollars is hard and requires years of work and lawyers and accountants, because of the laws and firms tied up in maintaining that kind of money.

    so buying a super yacht and putting people to work in that industry was not a "risk"... do you know if he lost 50 million as of today on that investment that created jobs and wealth for others..? do you have any idea how he made that money.. in reality you do not.. did he risk his postion to acquire another Co? or have to invest in people or technology.. find the clients? perform for his clients?...

    the painting of this man as "the evil rich" is a CANARD.. THE LEFT USES TO BRING HATE ONTO THEIR ENEMIES....


    its mind numbing..

    It appears nobody quoted his piece in it's entirety:

    Jan. 24, 2014 4:49 p.m. ET

    Regarding your editorial "Censors on Campus" (Jan. 18): Writing from the epicenter of progressive thought, San Francisco, I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its "one percent," namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the "rich."

    From the Occupy movement to the demonization of the rich embedded in virtually every word of our local newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle, I perceive a rising tide of hatred of the successful one percent. There is outraged public reaction to the Google buses carrying technology workers from the city to the peninsula high-tech companies which employ them. We have outrage over the rising real-estate prices which these "techno geeks" can pay. We have, for example, libelous and cruel attacks in the Chronicle on our number-one celebrity, the author Danielle Steel, alleging that she is a "snob" despite the millions she has spent on our city's homeless and mentally ill over the past decades.

    This is a very dangerous drift in our American thinking. Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendent "progressive" radicalism unthinkable now?

    Hate to tell ya.... Obama has destroyed the economy.. its dead.. and its going to only sink worse under his regulations.. there is little reason to take risks..
