Gina Rinehart, an Australian, complains that if people want to be rich, they need to start working instead of drinking and smoking. That's all it takes.

While I agree drinking and smoking and being lazy do not help one's personal bottom line, it sure does help to start out with $70+ Million. She inherited it from her Father and she is now Australia's richest person.

It's as easy as that you do-nothings.

This is not the first thread on this subject and unfortunately won't be the last but it clearly demonstrates how out-to-lunch these people are. She has the balls to claim her hard work made her who she is. While she may work "hard", so do millions of other people who do not have the critical mass of capital to pay the bills, eat, and still snowball the rest into a vast fortune regardless of beer prices.

Obviously it must be her brilliance and tenacity to make money with other people's money. Even if she were brain dead and lost a million dollars a year, she would still die better off than 99.9% of the planet. I guess a better question is to ask how come she has not turned her inherited fortune in something even bigger than what she has? Slacker...

Her and her ilk crow about competition and survival of the fittest and how they are the strongest. I counter that is not true. They are not the smartest not the strongest but the most destructive. They want to lump themselves in with the average businessman. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If they were indeed a small businessman in a small community somewhere, they would die of poverty. After they screwed over enough folks in town, they would be ostracized. Not only by the public but by other business owners. They would probably end up being sued too. But if you have enough money to start with, court costs are just part of doing "business". Screw away. See who can keep up.

So the crushing medical bills from my wife's cancer has nothing to do with it? Huh, I never knew.

I hate the title and I hate the ignorance in that article.

Apparently, some people still fail to realize that we're deep in a recession where good jobs are scarce all around. I know people who still can't find work and they do look and no, they don't spend all day drinking and smoking.

Indeed, it would be interesting to speculate how successful Gina Rinehart would have been finding her first job if she hadn't had a billionaire father and hadn't subsequently ridden the wave of China buying up Australian minerals.

Who cares what rich people think of the rest of us. How can they have any idea of the struggle to live that is an everyday battle for regular folk?

When they have walked the walk, I might listen when they talk the talk.

That female dog!

Wow I guess like Romney and Bain Capital that got a big back door bailout when they were on the verge of bankruptcy... The FDIC gave Mittens a $10 million dollar gift....

when they should have let them fail after Bain Capital's partners raided their own company of $27 million and got a government bailout!

I guess he didn't build that on his own either!

Sorry for the medical bills dude.

In light of that, her words come off even more crass and ridiculous.

You'd think a multi billionaire would look a bit tidier than that!

I only get given around 15 hours a week on average but when I work I work hard, yet there are people my age sleeping in everyday, smoking, drinking and driving their chavved up cars on their benefit money which is more than what I earn in a month. They are perfectly capable of working too.

How does that work?

I hate that... I work hard for my less-than-minimum-wage job and I don't drink... I guess the only thing stopping me from being an instant millionaire is the smoking... Yeah all £10 i spend on it a week.
Some people,
I give up, I'd rant about her not having her riches if it wasn't for the hard working men and women that worked for her daddy, but it would be pointless because you all get it and she wont read this.

SSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

lol apparently eating is ok with her

and she is not an abberation it seems


10 Most Obscene Lifestyles Choices of America's 1% Elite
Complaining about having to do their own dishes, or bragging about $800,000 car garages, the 1 percenters are all but screaming “let them eat cake” from the ramparts.
www.alternet.org...

8. The Sears CEO's New Versailles

Any news story that references Versailles in a non-ironic way must be included in Salon’s regular “let them eat cake” feature. As the Huffington Post reports (emphasis added):

While Sears downsizes and lays off employees, company chairman Edward Lampert is buying a sprawling estate on a semi-private island.

The billionaire hedge fund manager and chairman of Sears Holdings Corp. is reportedly set to close on a $40 million estate with seven bedrooms and Versailles-style reflection pools on Indian Creek Island, north of Miami. Meanwhile Sears is selling off 1,200 stores and closing 100 to 120 for good, with Florida seeing the most closings of any state.

In case you were wondering, the Wall Street Journal reports that the $40 million price tag will “set a record for a single-family home in the (Miami-Dade) county.”

9. Recoup at the Ritz

Hospital bills ruin the financial fortunes of many middle-class Americans, but for the rich a trip to the emergency room can practically be a vacation. As the New York Times reports under the non-ironic headline “Chefs, Butlers, Marble Baths: Hospitals Vie for the Affluent”:

The bed linens were by Frette, Italian purveyors of high-thread-count sheets to popes and princes. The bathroom gleamed with polished marble. Huge windows displayed panoramic East River views. And in the hush of her $2,400 suite, a man in a black vest and tie proffered an elaborate menu and told her, “I’ll be your butler.”

It was Greenberg 14 South, the elite wing on the new penthouse floor of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell hospital. Pampering and décor to rival a grand hotel, if not a Downton Abbey, have long been the hallmark of such “amenities units,” often hidden behind closed doors at New York’s premier hospitals. But the phenomenon is escalating here and around the country…”

In other words, as the healthcare crisis gets worse for most people, America’s healthcare system is focusing on a race to Ritz-Carlton-ize hospitals for the richest among us.

Well there is always a kernel of truth in even the most ridiculous statements. I think we all know some moochers.

My interpretation of her comments is anyone not as wealthy as she, must be a lazy bum.

That's how it works I'm afraid but down the line it'll pay off for you, I'm sure.

While these kids are having their fun now people like us are not only building careers but we are learning work ethic and such..

Besides any job is better than the dole que and even though I hate my job I thank my lucky stars because the job market is so empty at the moment...
