Lets not try and make it sound like Cindy McCain is the American Dream. Her father started a beer distributorship and left it to her. It doesn't take
a genius to deliver beer to people.
Are you really that ignorant? Do you know all that is involved in beer distribution? Running a business? Keeping a business going and keeping it
And just because people make money, even a LOT of money, that doesn't mean that they are smart enough to invest it so that their money can then work
for them. Many people have made oodles of money but haven't had the financial sense on how to keep their money and pass it down from one generation
to the next.
Cindy may have inherited the majority of her money so perhaps that makes you a bit jealous, but don't insult her fathers hard work - and it IS hard
Cindy McCain spends a lot of her money doing charitable things ... and it isn't just her money that she donates to charity, it's her time, which is
even more admirable.
I think many of you don't understand that when people are wealthy, they don't hoard the money for themselves ... they are extremely generous with it
and not just for 'write-off's' ... much of the money they 'give' doesn't even QUALIFY as a tax deduction.
They do it as their way of giving back and helping their community or those that are less fortunate.
Republicans view it as their PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY to give back to their community through donations of time, money, etc. They believe in LESS
government and more people helping people.
If you are so upset about Cindy spending a lot of money on her clothing when people are 'hurting', let me remind you, that the 'people' who run
the stores on Rodeo Drive and who sell jewelry largely based on commission in Beverly Hills, NEED people like Cindy McCain to purchase expensive items
so that they can keep their businesses afloat.
Shops that specialize in Couture need customers just as badly as the mom and pop dime stores in order to stay in business did you ever consider
that? Or because the stores specialize in couture and cater to the wealthy, maybe they don't matter as much?
