Angela Lansbury's Merkin: I've had the benefit of working with a number of very wealthy (enough to own multiple airplanes and rarely go into the office) people, most of which started from rather humble beginnings. I'd say the headline is pretty accurate from my personal experience.While many are workaholics, not all of them were. The overwhelming trend I've seen was not caring about what the law was, if they thought they wouldn't get caught, or that the punishment was small enough (at least the first few times you were caught) to not care about it. Also quite a few of them really enjoyed manipulating people for their amusement.
EngineerAU: RanDomino: To drive it home, David Graeber: Caring too much- That's the curse of the working classes.That explains why when I worked at grocery stores, it was always the stores in the poor neighborhoods that raised the most for donations for charity over the stores in rich neighborhoods.
Elvis Presleys Death Throne: Do the mods that greenlight threads work in a blue room or something?This site is farther to the left than Rachel Maddows dick.
wesmon: Where are all these immoral actions against the rich happening? I haven't seen any.I see a whole lot of actions by the rich against the poor, but nothing from the other side.Maybe what we need is for the poor majority to join together and fight back instead of buying that extra lottery ticket and dreaming of becoming rich.
shift_DAWG: MisterTweak: It's not a guarantee, but it's like buying a lotto ticket when there's only one number left to draw."Being born on third base, and thinking he hit a triple."
MayoSlather: After all this talk, I'm going to be really disappointed if I don't get to see a beheading.
Kit Fister: Ambivalence: cman: sithon: So basically sociopathsHow did you come by that diagnosis Doctor Sithon?

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: cman: Ambivalence: cman: sithon: So basically sociopathsHow did you come by that diagnosis Doctor Sithon? Did you just pull it out of your ass?Hit a little close did it?No I just felt like being a wiseassWould there be any credibility to a diagnoses that was pulled out of your ass if your ass were truly wise?
sithon: So basically sociopaths
Mugato: Most of the really rich people I know were born into it. There are exceptions of course. But I've never met a rich person who thinks he is or will admit that he's rich. Then I don't know any rappers.
