I hope it's named "Raymond".
 
2014-08-11 09:27:41 AM
I've heard he's actually pretty wealthy.
 
2014-08-11 09:31:10 AM
so a rich person isn't allowed to enjoy their money.  especially a rich person who gives a shiat load of it to charity to boot?

He doesn't seem too bad as rich people go.  He also actually did something productive to make his money.

Not even his yacht. He rented it

At 5 million a week!  Just think how many cruises that would buy aboard a Carnival Cruise, INCLUDING the necessary health care.

asinine? he's the world's richest man.

Or, proportional to income, like one of us investing in a plastic kiddie pool and filling it with Keystone Lights and ice and sitting in the backyard watching the neighbor's daughter practice cheerleading.

There si a percentage of the population that can't stand seeing others with more than what they have, but refuse to use that as a motivation to improve their lot.

Apparently not. We're supposed to hate him and wish that he were digging in the dirt with the rest of the rabble.

Yeah, if there's anyone I can give a pass for buying and using a sweet ass rich person toy, it's the guy who actually worked to get there and gives back to society. Where are the Walton kids vacationing this year?
 
2014-08-11 12:34:17 PM
Don't hate on Gates. He's actually using a good portion of his wealth to help the less fortunate, instead of just bribing politicians to help ensure he can make a little more.
 
2014-08-11 12:34:20 PM
I'm glad someone got a vacation this year.

He's 'Murikan. He's allowed to enjoy his money. If it was some Saudi prince or Russian plutocrat, people here will be prepping the tar and feathers.

Ya bill gates is the last rich person that I'm going to criticize for enjoying his money,  How about every rich kid who inherited their money and didn't work a damned day in their life.  Or even famous movie stars that basically were child actors and essentially handed their fame and fortune on a silver platter without having to actually work for it.

he bought it off the guy who did and marketed it correctly.
 
2014-08-11 12:39:37 PM
I don't understand the 'asinine' tag.

I mean, if he spent his vacation bribing politicians to keep the bush tax cuts for the wealthy in place (and driving up the national debt) or funding anti-global warming scumbags then I could see it.

Some guy who seemed to mostly have earned his fortune and seems to be pretty socially responsible with it enjoying his cool toys is just fine with me.

60 Minutes just did a story on the Billionaire philanthropy club that he is in. He's giving away basically 90% of his wealth.

It's hilarious that so many people want to praise Gates for his incredible generosity just because he gave away a couple of bucketfuls of the mountain of gold he sits on

Looks like someone is building a strawman Liberal so that person could knock it down.

I have no problem with rich people, hell I want to be one. I have a problem with policies that favor the rich and skew wealth in their favor.

Hey Bill enjoy your boat trip. You deserve it!

Bill Gates has donated more than  $26 billion dollars to philanthropic causes through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. What have YOU done, assholemitter?

Lt. Cheese Weasel:
60 Minutes just did a story on the Billionaire philanthropy club that he is in. He's giving away basically 90% of his wealth.

Considering 10% of his wealth is more than enough to retire comfortably in a solid gold house, he'd be a terrible person if he didn't.  It's got to be sort of tough to do in a way.  I mean, the check writing is the easy part.  If I had billions of dollars, I have no farking clue how I'd decide where it would do the most good.
 
2014-08-11 12:44:25 PM
FTFA: Moored off the coast of Sardinia, the boat Gates and family are renting reportedly has 12 state rooms, a seawater swimming pool, a cinema, a nightclub, a climbing wall, a gym and two hot tubs.

Seawater swimming pool ... which the rest of us refer to as "the ocean..."? (Or the Sea, I guess, in this case.)
Count me in with the "Why we hatin' on the rich using their money?" crowd.

Am I supposed to be angry about something, here? If I had that kind of bank account, I sure as hell wouldn't be spending my vacation at a Best Western in Minnesota.

I think people do that because it's a hell of a lot better than anyone else who sits on a mountain of gold has done. Again, where are the Walton kids vacationing this year?

Uh, is he violating the Russian sanctions by paying that guy 5 million a week?
 
2014-08-11 12:46:57 PM
OMG, he lavishly spent approximately  one-one-hundredth of one percent of of his accumulated personal wealth to rent a yacht for a week!  Why, that would be like someone with a net worth of $1 million spending $100 on a week of vacation!  This is an outrage!
