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.
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.

I agree with the looks statement. Forget the fact she is ugly and obese. She is rich. She can say whatever she wants and it is ok. Lots of women choose $ over looks. Check out all the chicks chasing rich ugly men (too many to list). It has nothing to do with looks. Just$$. Wasn't that bimbo anna nicole smith dating a 97 year old before he died?

When I read the title I laughed out loud. Not because it was funny but because it is an outright ludicrous thing to say.
Then I thought about all the "homeless" and broke people I meet in Los Angeles on my way to work. I swear, half of them are holding a bottle of "something" in brown bags, or smoking a cig. If they had the money to buy smokes, they could afford food, and if they had the time to be beggars they could use that time to straighten up.
Still, I would like to see those same words come out of Rinehart's mouth if she was born here in the slums of Los Angeles, rather than a rich family and inheritance.
