I agree!   As one lady said, "You can't get rich being stupid, unless your a comedian".

When they die, they also take nothing with them.   :popcorn:

Here's something most people don't know. Once you have wealth, even more than you can burn, you still think you're not wealthy.
Rich people are far more aware of the tenuous grip they have on their own wealth.
Poor people and people struggling actually can relax more than the wealthy because of the position the wealthy have created.
Everyone wants their money, even those charged with guarding it. It could disappear in a heartbeat, and there is always someone playing on their greed to part them of their money.

Poor are always in pursuit of it, know where their every penny is, and just how far it will stretch.
Those that have monetary wealth worry that it could disappear in a second, whether it's stocks or bad venture, but always live beyond their means as in cars and other toys in debt up to their ears.
It's not till they discover they have enough to cover all bills and no debt left that they settle in and STFU, because they don't want people to know they have money. Those are the smart ones, and you see them everyday wearing jeans and driving an old car.

Scum like Trump live off OPM, so they're always in pursuit of it, they create an image of wealth they really don't have, because that's how they sucker people into investing in their schemes.
Yes, Trump is the worst kind of scam artist. He's the leach to the rich, and a vulture to those wanting more.

Political Discussion and Debate / Charlie Sykes regrets...
« Last post by Hoofer on August 23, 2016, 08:31:41 PM »
My admission - I lived in Milwaukee Metro for 18 years, during which time I listened to the rise of both Mark Belling and Charlie Sykes, including Sykes moving to WTMJ (a really whacko liberal station at the time).  I have been all through WTMJ, including the basement, which was not rat infested at the time...  It is a very active environment.

http://www.mediaite.com/online/conservative-radio-host-i-feel-dumber-every-time-i-listen-to-sean-hannity/

Charlie is pulling a fast one, BTW... Charlie is not really a conservative, never has been one, IMO.  Remember, Charlie works for WTMJ, and suggests he listens to Sean Hannity, except, Sean is on a competing station, not on WTMJ.  Here's their weekly schedule.

http://www.wtmj.com/schedule
Friday

12 a.m. to 2 a.m. - Overnight America
2 a.m. to 4 a.m. - Red Eye Radio
4 a.m. to 5 a.m. - This Morning: America's First News with Gordon Deal
5 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. - Wisconsin's Morning News with Gene Mueller
8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. - Charlie Sykes
12 p.m. to 3 p.m. - Jeff Wagner
3 p.m. to 6 p.m. - Wisconsin's Afternoon News with John Mercure
6 p.m. to 9 p.m. - Sports Central with Greg Matzek
9 p.m. to 12 a.m. - Clark Howard

I think "Red Eye Radio" might come closest to "Conservative" on WTJM.

Meanwhile, WISN, the station who has been carrying numerous Conservatives, like Mark Belling, has a bit more familiar weekday schedule to Conservatives.

Friday
http://newstalk1130.iheart.com/onair/friday/
12am-5am Coast to Coast AM
5am-6am The WISN Morning Briefing
6am-10am The Jay Weber Show
10am-12pm Vicki McKenna
12pm-3pm Rush Limbaugh
3pm-6pm Mark Belling
6pm-9pm The Sean Hannity Show
9pm-12am Mark Levin

The real standouts McKenna, Belling & Levin are heads n tails above Charlie Sykes' recent media sensation.
Why would anyone want to listen to Liberal "The Milwaukee Journal" station (WTMJ) with it's sub par line up?
Oh... that's right, they carry the Green Bay Packer games... and the broadcasters are pretty good.

Here's the real MEAT of the post, Charlie's regret... if you care to read it - the Liberals are just ecstatic!

Quote
In an excerpt from an interview with Darcy posted on Twitter Sunday, Sykes discusses how the conservative media had established itself for decades as an antidote to the “mainstream media,” educating generations of viewers to view the major media outlets with suspicion. The result was that there was no longer anyone in a position to fact-check Donald Trump in a way that would reach his base. “We’ve basically eliminated any of the referees, the gatekeepers. There’s nobody,” Sykes said.

“At a certain point you wake up and you realize you have destroyed the credibility of any credible outlet out there,” he added. “And I am feeling, to a certain extent, that we are reaping the whirlwind at that. And I have to look in the mirror and ask myself, ‘To what extent did I contribute?'”

... That's the context ...

a.  Charlie Sykes is a not-so-conservative posing as a #nevertrump (whatever....), and has ridden that wave of popularity... just about as far & long as he could - he might have been an #alwaysHillary from the get go.
b.  Sykes works for a Left wing radio station WTJM, also owned by a very left wing television station, which competes with a Conservative station, WISN.
c.  The gatekeepers are of course, Liberal pundits!
d.  IMO, it was always about ratings, just like FOX news hosting the debates & creating fake news out of thin air - but in the end betraying undiscerning Conservatives.
e.  The #neverTrump story ran it's course in Milwaukee - he's trying to keep them hanging around WTMJ a little longer.... hence the Liberal interview of a conservative having regrets (the Libs eat this stuff up).

It is a shame anyone bought Charlie Sykes' #neverTrump line, the rest is just liberal regret - attempting to lead them back to the Democratic promise land.

Rich people who EARNED it all, usually don't go around bragging about their wealth.
Poor people are known for reckless spending & pretending to be "royalty". 
Like lottery winners, suddenly rich people seem to be hopelessly broke in record time.

Donald is selling a brand name, "Trump"... with nothing behind it.  Destroy the brand, and he's a nobody.

All those years of profiting from debt and reorganization.... now he's doing it by donation.

Reminds me of Wayne Newton on that James Bond flick....
Ponzi himself is envious.

MSM Distraction News / Re: Beware of the snowflake police!
« Last post by je_freedom on August 23, 2016, 07:32:41 PM »
I thought about posting it in this category,
since all the other articles about "snowflake students"
are over here.

I went with the other category because
this is no longer a cultural distraction.
It is being made into law with some serious teeth in it!

I'm just glad to have this posted somewhere.

This ordinance really would convert the USA into
a reign of terror like the Soviet Union!
Where everyone was terrified of
saying the wrong thing to anyone, lest they "disappear."

The only difference is,
instead of the accused non-conformists disappearing,
all their money disappears.

Political Discussion and Debate / Re: Death penalty into Europe again.

T think one of the reasons for the continued popularity of communism and other leftist philosophies, is that they have never had their "Nuremberg Trials". The people who used to make citizens "disappear" simple faded into the background, with their pensions. Or changed the name of their party and ran for office.

Very good observation!  We've been defeating countries instead of Ideologies, or someone is forgetting to teach it in the history class.  National Socialism (Nazism) is on the rise - how could this possibly happen in America?  They replaced history lessons with envy, racism & strife.
