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
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.
