There may be no conspiracy here but the only reason I post this is that I wonder if he received special treatment since he is a extremely wealthy person? It seems commonly known that people are placed on these organ donor lists and often never get the organ they need. I believe you can be moved up on the list depending on the severity of your condition but I would assume anyone that has to go on that list thinks they deserve to be bumped up.

I am alll for moving some people up. Look at what this man has done for society. Should he really be behind some old drunk that drank away his liver and never really did a darn thing for anyone?

I have an empty sheet of paper that has done at least as much for society as Jobs ever has.

The funny thing is that I am against moving people up. Hell, I am against anyone over 40 getting any organ transplants. Available organs should only go to realtively young people, those without any history of self-destructive behavior, that still have something left to contribute to society.

Oh cmon. Steve Jobs is a leader he has created and/or ran companys that employee thousands of people and create products that most people love.

Steve Jobs probably does more by noon to change the world then you will do in your whole life.

I do not see this illogical connection you make between "running a company" and "changing the world." He employs people but so do Exxon, Monsanto, and Haliburton and I don't see anyone praising their CEOs for what they have done for society.

If you want to look at the record, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet probably do more to help the world before they even wake up in the morning than Steve Jobs ever will in his entire existence.

I would like to point out that your obvious ad hominem attack against me should allow you to post to the thread, Why do some people get so mad when you disagree with their point of view?, with a fresh viewpoint and renewed clarity.

So stating a fact is a personal attack against you? My apologies.

I agree with your comment about Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, so they would have been before Steve Jobs on the list if they needed a liver.

Oh yeah by the way, I praise all the things that the all the corps you listed do. Did you ever try to start your car without gasoline or tried to earn more than 6% return on investment?
