Unfortunately...the rich have to do nothing to get all that they appear to think they deserve....

NOW When I was a tyke, 'twas old Mr Scrooge McDuck -- and, my Lord, didn't he just have the Devil's own time with yobs & layabouts trying to lift his cash (three cubic acres of it!) The Beagle Boys, where are they now when we need them? Why, we could turn the lads loose on chappies like Mr Rumsfeld and his Halliburton buddies, and sort out all of the skiving bastards! But, never /ever/ did I begrudge an old duck his money -- he did work awfully hard to get it, you know. Not like these effing currency-traders & equity-sniffers! At that, I owned most of the Carl Barks-drawn duck-comics, all got for me by MY Uncle Emmet, and I give 'em all to my nephew, oh in 1996 or so....

Hmmmm, I agree with this, though I disagree somewhat with lavenderblue and feel that the self made rich have worked extremly hard, albeit ruthlessley, to earn what they have.

DJ Kirkby : are you a prot or what?
Gawdi Broon will support you so no matter the facts of the case.
If you need to "work" you will not make "good" money.
