I think it's fair to say on the whole, we are really an ignorant bunch.
Lol. Not bizarre. A ten year old feels rich because his government (his parents) pay for everything else. No taxes or anything.
It's obvious that our economy is so screwed up and the line between the rich and the poor is so wide that seven million bucks isn't enough for the rich. Probably because of the super rich.

It would seem the " haters " of entrepreneurship " are either to lazy, and want a hand out or have no real understanding of what this country was founded upon? The ignorance on this site is baffling?

Oh yeah, I hear all the laughter and derision. Now do the math.hat are CD rates today? Hovering about 1%. You CAN get more with longer ranges, but your basic CD is about 1% yielding $10K per million invested per year. So $6 million invested will get you an average income. Anything else is terribly risky. If you had invested $6 million in real estate a few years ago your net worth would be less than half today.

This also proves how out-of-touch millionaire circles are with the rest of the people. Not surprising that someone who's biggest problem is not having enough millions is not going to want to be hanging around people who have to struggle just to eat and pay rent. They would never say $7 million is not enough in front of those people, or having middle class people in their social circles.

I agree with them, if I was rich I don't think I'd just be happy with 7 million. I'd need at least 15 - 25 million to be satisfied. My parents have a ton of money (at least 5 million, plus their real estate stuff) and they are always complaining about how they don't have enough money to pay the bills and other stuff. They say having a million dollars won't get you far in life any more

A million today is about the same as having $100,000 about 30 years ago.

Yep, blame the liberals. Too bad the facts don't agree with you. Warren Buffett say's there is class warfare and his class is winning.

OMG...I have wondered the same thing...like do they have prego and doritos in their cabinets? Maybe some hotdogs or what not in the fridge? They probably go out to eat or have meals brought in..though.
