    maybe you need to visit reality sometime.
    Ok...but this has zero to do with what you posted about millionaires working "risky" jobs.

    And it also doesn't explain why wealthy people live longer than other people - although I'm pretty sure it has to do with being able to afford the best medical care money can buy.

    My mother did farm work too. She said it was hard work, but they ate well, and she earned enough money to buy books for the next school year.

    If she earned enough to save for college, she probably would have thought she'd hit the mother load.

    or you can read

    "Financial Peace" or "Total Money make over"

    Maybe read more and you would be better informed.

    It may be wonderful, it may be inspirational, but informative - no.

    If a 9 year old black child were living in the south, and doing farm work during the Jim Crowe era when TV claims to have grown up, it most likely was because his family needed the money to survive.

    You're NOT supposed to put those 2 together. You are NEVER supposed to say (or type) it out loud!

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

    "Millionaire Next Door"
    I think that the 8 of 10 first generation millionaires is quite plausible. And among OUR GENERATION, highly likely. But many of our generation are NOW losing ground. I know people who lost their life savings and 'lost the farm', literally, from illness during the past 20 years. Now we can parse out the rest of your pronouncement about 'class warfare'. Race bigotry, gender bigotry, regional bigotry, ZIP CODE bigotry results in diminishing assets, lack of accumulation of wealth, and over the past 25-30 years BAD HEALTH outcomes. CLASS WARFARE among the haves and have nots is as good a phrase as any until someone comes up with a new one.

    So, you think welfare is compassion?

    So you think telling the truth is a lack of intelligence.

    If so it is you that would be the one that as you said Lack intelligence and compassion.

    Because trapping people in welfare dependency is NOT compassion,

    Not understanding the reality of the world is a lack of intelligence.

    It appears you have devolved into keeping people enslaved,
