We can't take it with us. I believe everyone should keep enough to live on comfortably but get rid of the rest. Hoarding is not the solution. Once we die all that hoarded wealth serves no purpose (except to the beneficiaries, lol).

Dear Sir:
Reference may please be made on the above.
In this connection, I would like to inform you that I am a poor citizen of people of Bangladesh. Sir you are great rich man and kindness. So far you know that massive flood have been occurred during this running month in my country. Flood claimed thousands of peoples lives, damaged crops, livestocks and houses. My houses and essential stuff has been seriously damaged by this dreadful flood. I lost everything devastation Flood and terrible climate of this year. Now I need some money just for hand to mouth. There is no job our country because Bangladesh is over population country. So it is very hard to get a job. Please help me, I need your help, please.Only give very small amount,so when its joint together show large amount.
In the above circumstance I fervently hope and pray that you would kindly give me some money or any kind of help. I shall remember it for ever and pray almighty God for you forever.
I'm very poor sir.Please help me sir.Only very very small amount.
Yours truly,

I live in the big O. Sure, I bump into Warren at the bowling alley, the titty bar and the hardware store fairly often. What a guy! Just as regular as the day is long. Seriously, he's always got a quarter to spare for the homeless guy who licks his windshield. And the girls at the club, they think he's pretty great too. One of them actually told me they just can't wait to see him come.

One of the guys told me that he saw ole Warren blubbering over his hot beef sandwich at Gorats when he found about those poor folks in Darfur, whatever that is. The guy said WB was so upset he spent a couple more billion or was it trillion over there! What a classy guy.

I have no love of the Simons, but look at the size of their building. They employ people, lots of them.
Wealthy people own corporations, spend money and provide venture capital.
This fact seems to be outide the thoughts of this esteemed board.
Keep in mind that the Simons recieve a healthy tax dollar subsidy for their sports/entertainment ventures.

I have no problem with anyone's personal wealth as long as it was earned. Take a look at one of Indiana's resident billionaires, Jim Irsay. His wealth is accumulated and increased by using the power of law to extract (@ gunpoint) even more dollars from citizens that might not otherwise purchase his entertainment product. Now there's someone who wealth was/is acquired thru morally offensive means.

I read once about a guy who made millions. He said that after three or four million he pretty much had everything he could ever want. I'm sure some would disagree with that. But I would hope if I had that kind of money a great majority would go to help others.
