... fundamental level, and I couldn’t." Chelsea Clinton

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politic ... -1.1840138

The left will completely melt over this altruistic gobbledygook. Presidential material here also!

Straight off the top of my head, didn't she marry a multi-millionaire in what was about a $3 million wedding? And didn't some TV network pay her an annual $600K salary to be almost invisible? The article mentions her $10.5 million apartment. But from her comments you would think she was Mother Theresa reincarnated.

Perhaps she thinks that the love of money is the root of all evil? Maybe she should give it all away. :?

Only child, raised in a sheltered life style, with wealthy parents and husband, now back working for her parents. Who needs to worry about money ?

Give her a couple hundred dollars,... drop her off somewhere folks don't know her, and see if she still thinks that way in a year.

I keep telling younz, all these people R & D alike have never had to worry about & in many cases ever even had to work for money. In their mindset they are much the average simply because the poor are lazy & invisible to them, it's a entirely different world in which they live & function. Only difference is many here only see it as one sided :( but I guess it's the world that you live & function in. :shock:

Or some had to work their asses off and invest and risk everything to get there, and despise the lazy sit at home types that bleed them more and more every day. There are two sides at both scales. I have also met a lot of poor people that work their asses off as well that do not take from the system and appreciate the work it takes to improve their lives. So everyone needs to see the big picture. But I see your point and agree its both R & D. And politicians do seem to have that holyier that though attitude that they can just ignore us till we are needed again.

Yup ! I've known quite a few wealthy folks from both sides.

I've also known some that, even thought they never had to "work" a day in their lives, they were humble, down-to-earth generous people that you'd never know they came from wealthy families. But those types seem to be fewer and fewer these days.

What I don't like is how the wealthy in one party in particular are often trying to beat the wealthy in the other party over the head as being greedy, while trying to appeal to the not-so wealthy for votes. Just do a web search using "republicans democrats and donations to charity", of who donates more to charities, R or D, and who wants to donate with other people's money, to see who really is the more greedy wealthy ones.

Here's just a sample of the many pages of hits.

And so the Bitter Harvest from The Farms Of Apathy continues to come in. Left,Right,Lib,Con,Dem or Rep,it just goes to show that messed up is truly messed up. No one is really conducting the Business of Our Country. With Apathy comes the Co-Symptoms: Malaise,Hopelessness(Who Cares,My Vote Doesn't Count),No Accountability Needed,etc...The list of Fail just goes on and on like a Toilet Swirl. The Better Question Of The Day:How Do We Stop It,And How Do We Bring All Americans Back To The Table Of Our Country's Business? There's a Screamer to Chew On...... :gee: followed by :bang:

SB, just to point out different ways to look at things, you sure can make $ look huge & play % from all different angles but it's comparing apples to oranges.
http://swampland.time.com/2012/04/13/is ... ack-obama/
Lets also not forget that much of Romney's wealth was admittedly held off shore & even setting that aside much is given to his own charities, & Mormon Church as with everything a person (if feeling charitable) gives what they can for whatever reason & I'm sure there are other examples of people of more equal wealth, figures lie & liars figure, & that crosses all lines.
It's just kind of sad that everything (doesn't seem to matter about subject) turns to a political farce. Wealth or lack of crosses all lines & reasons. As I said those lucky enough to have never experienced the others side know next to nothing about it.

Cherry pick whatever examples you want Sam, anyone can do that. I could just as easily only mentioned how little % of their wealth the obummers give to charity. You know, the ones who are pushing for "wealth distribution" ? However, the overwhelming examples still remain.

LOL, she'd certainly be worried about if she had none. Someone from the media should challenge her to live off a generous $2500 for one moth.

Seems there is a trend in one party not paying their income taxes as well. Again no accountability.
As far as Romney s money being off shore or what charities are being used for deductions. What difference does it make? (Damn I have been waiting to use that somewhere) Is Romney doing anything illegal? If he is staying within the law for his tax rate and deductions why is or would it be a problem. I right off as much deductions as I legally can as well, I am sure most here do.
