What does Hippocracy look like?

Well, I have a pretty good idea it might look something like this:
www.cnbc.com...
Paraphrased from his video:

"there is something wrong with our system, when I can go make millions of dollars, and others can't even pay off their student loans, let alone start a business."


If Zuckerberg is handing out money, I'd be happy to get some. But if somehow, I don't end up getting a sack full of $50's, I can always resort to the old way of making things work. (work for my money)

If you want to start a business, you can do that. Right now. Nobody is stopping you. Yes, there are challenges, and yes, more small businesses fail than make it, but if it was easy, everyone would do it. It's not, and they don't. But those that do, and those that bust their ass and work way more than 40 hours, and put in blood sweat and tears, and most of their time, might just make it.

So to reiterate my point, Zuckerberg, a guy who started with an idea and now has millions, isn't the guy who should be #ting on the very system that enabled his success. Thus, Hippocracy.

What does hypocrisy look like? I was thinking 99% of politicians.

But I can't deny Zuck the F*ck isn't a great answer as well. Isn't it funny how some of the 'smartest' people can be complete dopes!?!?

Thanks for dangling the official carrot before everyone, one more time.

You think working hard is some kind of government conspiracy?

I would just point out that you may want to look at where Facebook keeps their money and how much (aka how little) taxes this dork pays. So much for supporting the greater good.

Nice sentiment, coming from a guy that doesn't like borders and walls but is happy to demolish multiple houses around his so he can expand his property "for privacy" and then throw up....

a wall.

He is kind of the poster boy for "do what I say, not what I do".

Apparently, he was saving up so he can offer up stacks of money to us plebes. Unless he was hoping someone else was going to do the giving.....

You would think hard work is rewarded. But actually, if you are arrested, convicted, and put in jail you get 3 square meals per day plus free healthcare!

There's something really wrong in this country but it simply is the third rail of American politics:



Most people will not watch this video or even acknowledge a problem actually exists. It simple is NOT politically correct to suggest the government has any role at all in addressing the excesses of laissez faire capitalism. YOU JUST CAN'T TALK ABOUT IT!

Have you ever tried? I doubt it. America is still the land of opportunity whether you believe it or not. I've been out on my own for 18 years and yeah it's hard but I'll take opportunity over assistance any day. If you're too timid or lazy to chase the "carrot" then don't whine about your lot in life. Period.

You're right, I apologise for misconstruing your defeatist remark. Carry on, if you can find the will.
