    So once again your class warfare bigotry shows you are clueless.

    "Millionaire Next Door"
    Show me your proof that 80% of all millionaires in this country are "1st generation."
    Then you can show me where MOST of them worked dangerous minimum wage jobs.

    Yep, It's all their OWN faults including early death! How 'christian' of you.

    (I wonder how many of them have EVER had an opportunity to go out on a boat and have THEIR picture taken).

    You get 65 - 67 years out of a 'worker'. You give them minimum wage or whatever the least you can pay to get the work needed done. No or little benefits. The worker retires and start dying off--just about the time they were ready to start collecting 'entitlements'.

    The expense line of a business' balance sheet is less over the business' lifetime. The COUNTRY spends less on entitlements on each worker who dies after their usefulness is no more.

    This is WIN WIN!!

    (Tell me this isn't a plausible plan. There are actuaries out there that I promise have 'gamed this out').
    You get just about enough to show up for work Monday morning, they can't screw that up...

    Thx

    It isn't their fault it is just reality...People do what they must to make a living... I did farm work, not the safest jobs in the world beginning at 9 years old why because I wanted money to go to college earn an education and care for people.


    maybe you need to visit reality sometime.

    Poorer people DO take more "risky" jobs as to the long-term consequences...

    Hard work wears a body down before it's time... back problems, repetitive motion injuries, stress...

    Jobs that wear out both the body and the soul.

    Thx

    You were white, a male working on a FARM at 9 years old. What do you think the odds of 'making it out' for a BLACK guy your (approx) age who worked on a farm at 9? Imagine the odds if he was working on a farm in AL, MS, GA, in the 1950's?

    The same, my Black Cousin worked beside me, he is a Nurse Anethisis, I am a Medical Technologis, we went to the same undergraduate school. he chose a different path post graduate. He earns a much greater salary than me.

    Now, why do you believe that BLACK PEOPLE cannot make it without your help, Do you think they are Stupid, or do you think they are lazy, or do you think they can only mooch on welfare..

    But then again we forgive you, you are a Liberal and don't know anybetter.

    the only difference in he and I, My Father had horses to pull the wagons and plows, his dad had mules

    TNV is full of shit. He may have played at the farm while his parents worked there, but he didn't work.
