I generally don't have a problem with playing the game to your advantage. You keep overlooking the main point I've been making, that pertains to why this thread was posted in the first place. That is, a woman who was born a muti-millionaire is disparaging people who are "beneath" her -- calling them lazy, drunks, and then proposing they work for $2 a day.

THAT is the type of blatant ignorance and narcissism that should not be tolerated. She's a pompous fool that may have skill in her business success, but is mentally and ethically demented.

I don't have any respect for parasites that openly mock the very same people that made their wealth accretion possible in the first place. She's graceless, obnoxious, a societal & cultural leech; mentally and physically repulsive. Whether or not she can multiply an inherited fortune means nothing to me; again if you read my post you'd realize what points I've been making. We already tolerate the exploitation of environmental conditions & resources by the elite; so there's no room for pigs like her who have the gall to [publicly] disparage those struggling, and those actually working hard.


She played the current game and she played it well. You can hate her for it, or you can study how she did it and learn from it.

I prefer to study and learn.

Complete side, but parasites are vital to every living thing, including economies.


Sorry to butt in - But - It is easy to play the game you speak of as in Machiavellian
However if you really want a challenge - use your skills to benefit others in an impartial way.
Bet you could think of something if you set aside your indoctrinated way and took the challenge

Maybe you are a person that does not require the love and respect of others but unfortunately that would surely follow
So if you do not want GENUINE respect stay as you are
But i think you are capable of turning anything on it's head if you wanted

She should try a 2 dollar a day food budget with her fat a$$.. Seriously I hate when employers try to compare labor costs from other country's.

This is true, and I know and understand the cycles prevalent in history.
Booms and Busts and all that.

The heart of the matter comes down to where do you place yourself at in these cycles in life and what are your long term priorities, and not just as a human?

Cut throat tactics and Darwinist approaches in this life are at the bottom of the barrel in terms of your soul's development. Perhaps this is where you need to be now, but you reap what you sow and the next life around, you may be a poor African, working for 2 dollars a day, and hear of people profiting off your labor so that things you can't see from your perspective now, you will see then.

You may think you see and understand other's perspectives, just as I do, but your seeing it from your own shoes is different from personal experience and actually living it, which is really the best teacher in life.

If you study history you will see the cycle.

One day there will be an uprising, a reorganization, and another period of growth with new rulers. Same game, different players.

Make the best of what you can when you can and keep on moving.

Looking at her i don't think 200 dollars a day would keep her in snacks.

While she's at it why doesn't she just suggest going back to slavery it was after all better for the economy.


This is so sad, GO READ THE ARTICLE...PROPERLY
The Rhineharts have ALWAYS paid their employees very well. Western Australia is a wealthy and healthy state in Australia, WA holds the rest of the country up through the mining sector.
Many of my friends work for Gina (on the rock face) and are well paid. The government has increased taxes to destroy the mining industry and send Australia the way the US has gone.

This whole thread is such a lie, media manipulation at its finest. She is no self sacrificing angel but Rhinhart is not the demon that some want her portrayed as.
Her money floats Australia, she should be listened to, the labor government is taxing the heart out of the mining sector and Australia as a whole has become uncompetitive.

If that isnt obvious then you are just plain delusional.

I wouldn't be surprised if the corporate elite in the United States secretly feel the same way. Why else are they sending U.S. manufacturing jobs overseas for cheap labor and trying to break up union shops? They take advantage of dirt cheap labor, but the price of goods are still high. Sure, our hourly rates may be high in the western world, but we don't live in shacks and live in poverty.

I guess it must be nice to live in a glass house and look at the average worker as peasants. Let the peasants work pay check to pay check and manufacture goods so the elite can dine on lobster, caviar and purchase their extravagant toys. Anybody who thinks giving tax breaks to the rich will help benefit the middle class should remind themselves of how rich people like her think.

I agree 100% with you my friend, just to add to the mix here you forgot the "escargot" that goes so nicely with the layoff slips they like to put out on a daily basis.

and there are so many businesses who are looking at or do take their sources from overseas rather than employ a high wage australian to do the same, it's about profit for an end product, not a concern of welfare and fair wages to an employee where your seen as just another willing number to expand their fortune with the cheapest cost in mind.

sheep being fed just enough to hunger for more, allowing these so called shepards to feast on all the glory.

Should I
Mate of mine works 6 months of the year, not including the 6 weeks holidays, works 1 week up on the mines has one week at home. One on one off.
$120,000 a year he earns doing that..
The average wage in the mines is $90 000, thats for working six months a year, 12 hour days. Unskilled, Tradies earn far more than that.

You are all talking crap, no idea what is going on. The carbon taxes and mining taxes are hobbling Australia.
Gillard is destroying this country.
Thats what Gena is saying, you pretend you know whats going on. Brainwashed by the media.

The first things I think when I look at this picture

- A fat disgusting pig who actually thinks her opinion has any merit to hard working Australian people.

- Someone who does not exercise very much...

- Usually anything over 300kg in Aus goes through an abbaitor, is cut to pieces and then sent out to the consumers.

- B!tch, before you go telling hard working aussies how and why we should live, take a look in the mirror. You may have money, but you are the most disgusting person I have seen in the spotlight. I swear you have put on another 50kg since you last puked on air. I reckon you have a maximum of 7-8 years left on this wonderful planet and will die because of your inability to look after yourself properly. Gotta love the rich life....

When the Chinese start buying only out of Africa and South America because Australia is to expensive, I hope you remember her warning.

Might be good for her figure. That might be a low blow, but really how can anyone take her seriously when it's clear she's a glutton?

So many things spring to mind for this thread and the type of persons responding to it.

Shallow calous people who judge by cover alone should go and stare at themselves in the mirror for a very long time. If you find yourself so perfected perhaps the ugly is on the inside afterall, nasty people.

I see a lady who has had anything but a lovely journey so far, who for the most part has said very little and had her personal family laundry aired for all, and who just wanted to play with the big boys.
I mean they're alollowed to look however and act however aren't they?
Different when a woman does it?

The simple fact of global disparity of incomes for the actual hard workers and average joe's IS a major issue for any one who cares, probably not so much for those who have responded in the negative.

It must be really tough to be that rich in a minority (woman miner) and not know who your friends are, let alone the issues with your own family. She's probably tougher than most on here.

Big girls are always beautiful by the way.

I think I have discovered Rush Limbaugh's either long lost twin sister, or a obvious eharmony match.

Anyhow, she has a half point...western (Ya Au, your more or less western) society is too expensive when there are slaves as an alternative.

Solution is simple...stop making the damn slaves an option...trade embargo all nations that have low to no worker regulations and standards. A company wants to use these 3rd world nations, fine..go ahead, but your not selling your crap on our shores without paying such incredible peneltys that it is far cheaper to hire local than outsource to slaves.

This then would bring employment back to all the proper nations and create actual fair trade, but would be helpful in 3rd world nations also, requiring them to pay and uplift to join the grown ups.

The only one whom would be against this are the most ruthless investor wings of corporations....aka, all the political parties on earth to varying degrees.
