Think of all these people earning TRIPLE or more your salary.

CEO's earning MILLIONS a year, etc.

Do you really think they are better then the average human being on this planet?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13127957


Yes, much better - higher IQ, better educated, better at dealing with people and working with them to get things done, better at speeches, conducting meetings, better at socializing, less lazy, less of a procrastinator, more organized, I could go on and on.

Same, WAY less lol, i could not afford to live in the UK on my measly pension but here it is enough to get by.

I don't begrudge anyone having a good income though tbh, they have done the ground work to get there etc so good for them. I wouldn't mind a job here to keep me busy but the money is a joke, doing 6 days a week for $100 a month just doesn't do it for me lol.

God has carried my wife and I through the lean times - and I mean lean - and has blessed me since with the opportunity to make enough money to sock away for my retirement and then some.

My wife and I survived on less than 20k per year, and that's with a mortgage and two kids while I was growing my business.
It isn't easy being self employed and you take the good with the bad, but I've worked my ass off for a LONG time to get to where I am today.

Perhaps no one NEEDS 500,000 per year, but those that make it end up spending money that creates jobs for others.
If you capped everyone at 65k a LOT of jobs would be lost.

Let me ask you something OP - who do you think pays the lions share of the taxes?
those who make under $65k or those who make over??

If you have more than 7.62 brain cells you would answer those who make over.
So tell me, if everyone was limited to $65k per year, the government would have to jack taxes up to 137.6% because you know that Congress NEEDS that money!!!

What is the point in your rant here? Are you one of those people who can't stand to see others who have worked hard to get somewhere?

No, because they waste a large precentage of that income paying others to do what they could do themselves if they had any actual skills.

Landscaping, vegetable gardening, home repair, vehicle repair, electrical, plumbing, framing, etc.

You can build up a multi million dollar empire with less than 50K income over 20 years.

You need a hyper masculine personality (rare)/self -sacrifice/income properties & private money / partners who believe in you.

The latter part is how Trump turned the equivalent of 100K into 1 Billion.
