    Billionaires: free to romp or responsible to fellow citizens?

    Should a multi-billionaire be forced to settle for 7 homes instead of 10, 2 private jets instead of 3 etc.?

    Hypothetical situation:

    Meet: Billionaire Bush

    He is a billionaire

    Has 20 homes, 3 private jets, sends his 10 children to the very best private and or ivy league schools, has several concubines, runs several companies whose bottom level employees (the vast majority of his employees) make little above minimum wage, lets larges amounts of money sit in his bank account, many of his companies are hurtful to the earth, many of his companies are diversions and failures meant to avoid paying income tax and so on

    oops .. please post to the other one with the same title .. this one doesn't have the poll on it, lol!

    I'm gonna try to put a poll on this one anyway .. don't know how to delete it, lol

    Hey, cool, my poll has a spin-off. Multibillionaires should be able to spend their money however they want on whatever they can afford.

    Where's the poll?

    Before you criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes, that way when you do criticize them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    You should be able to spend your money on what ever you want regardless if you are poor, middle class, rich or super-rich. It is not right to try to get the government to steal someone else's money just because you are green with envy.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
