You are citing modern media as an example to prove that the rich don't work hard?
Where do you think they perpetuate all the best villains we all love to hate? The corrupt businessman, the evil Republican, the molesting priest, the
crazy veteran, the murderous TEA partier, all terrorists are secretly NAZIs in disguise, the lazy rich man ... each of these is a stock standard used
by every writer of every major entertainment piece put out since I've been aware enough to watch for the patterns.
You'd think someone would defy convention and use something fresh like ... the evil Democrat, the virtuous businessman, the heroic veteran, etc.
Regardless, every rich person I know of has worked hard to make what they've earned. One is my uncle who retired after his first million. He got
bored and went back to work for Apple as one of their higher ups. He works just as hard now even though he doesn't have to, but he just likes
Another is a guy who grew up a local construction company. We got to sit in his private box during a football game once. Normal guy, down to earth,
and still hands on with his construction company, but we sat in 6-figure box seats that day.
