I can believe your not leaving your poor little rich kiddos nada. Wouldn't want to subject them to an estate tax. Now would you? Hey Silver, you should have named your kiddos nickel, dime, quarter and fifty cent piece. Then you could have referred to them as "The Chain-ge Gang".
Allen, there's two ways of looking at how or why he has already given his children their inheritance. You guys crucified my grandfather for not giving money to my dad when he needed it. So wouldn't it be prudent to give your children their money when they're starting their families, purchasing a home, may come up on a financial rough patch and the money would come in handy or even have a sick child and it could help with medical bills? Maybe it has nothing to do with avoiding inheritance tax at all. It could be he has given them some financial foundation to start out with instead of them waiting around for him and his wife to die to get the money. I'd say it shows he's not selfish. There's nothing wrong with wanting to see your children and grandchildren enjoy a good life. As a parent, I think it's great thing to do. If they blow it all, then they'll have to learn the hard way about being good stewards of your money. It's like he said, there's no more, nada, nothing and coming from Silver I believe that's what he means.
What would/will you do?

Thanks, Allen that comment inspired a song from this here darkie.
(Sung to Sam Cooke's song "Chain Gang")
"That's the sound of Silver's kids, working on his Chain-ge gang.
(Repeat)
All day long they work so hard with no point of view,
Bringing his liquor and coke to him is what they all do.
But,they're tax deductions in his miserable life,
And he also gets one for Katie, his black wife"
Oh don't you know....That's the sound of Silver's kids..........
LOL...Silver in a Sam Cooke song.....priceless

Terror and rape are acts of violence and with intent. An alcoholic yes has the potential of becoming violent but, his only intent is to have another drink. In the case of the football player maybe not an alcoholic, just an occasional display of irresponsibility and an ego the size of Texas. He also by driving drunk could have had an accident that may have killed four or more but not out of intent but impairment of good judgement.
Let me now set the record straight on myself. No I DO NOT do drugs reguardless of what Silver thinks and I have NO criminal background whatsoever. Furthermore, I have NEVER even had a traffic violation in all my years of driving. Every great now and then I will have a beer with my meal or a mixed drink but it is in the privacy of my home. It is because I am responsible that I am a menace to the courts. No crime no dime.
Allen, we'll have to agree to disagree. Now you say you have a drink in your home, nothing wrong with that and the other night you said when you go to a bar and start drinking you like to have a cigarette. Of the latter of the two, you HAVE to know, that when maybe not you, but some people that go out for a night of drinking and don't designate a driver, there is intent the minute they get in the car turn the key and could possibly kill someone 2 miles down the road. Alcohol has the ability to impair the thought process and ability to make sound judgment. Therefore, there is intent IMO when a person drinks and does not get a designated driver knowing full well his body reflexes and judgment could be impaired and result in the death of another. For instance, if my daughter were killed in an automobile accident by someone that over corrected, hit her head on and killed her, that I could understand because it was an accident. However, if my daughter was killed by a drunk driver, because being drunk and driving is no accident, it's intentional from that first drink and making the decision to drive, that I could never accept because it could have been avoided.
Let's get back to the football players or anyone with an ego regarding rape, he could just say she said "no" but meant "yes" or we were fooling around and whoopsy daisy penetration just happened there was no intent. It's always about semantics and in the end EVERYONE is sorry, yada, yada yada.

And now, the Republican value system is so warped that one legislture wants children of rape victims to be born for the only purpose being that they can get the DNA of the child to convict the father of rape. This is just TOO Republican to even think about. Think that this child may be on (God help us) Welfare with dad put away for life?

I would rather take the crap shoot with Obama than with Romney. So, the plan has already worked from my point of view. You can watch the results from a foreign country, so, no need for you to worry.

What would/will you do?
Bacon, allow me to crucify my own grandfather. He was by no means wealthy by todays standards but he had money. He never gave us anything and we did not ask. I loved my grandfather but always thought him to be stingy. I am sure it was because he lived through the "Great Depression". He always referred to "The Hoover Times". There were six boys and one girl in that family. Two uncles and the Aunt took everything my grandparents had and against their wishes. Which left hard feelings and a divided family. I have no biological children. I will leave nothing behind and no one to fight over it.

Arnold, what does this have to do with my post you're responding to?

Since we're veering off topic, what do you think about the post TSF posted earlier about the school children and my post back to him about it?

I believe (know) what I said was,"I don't go to bars anymore because it is hard to sit there and have "A" drink while trying to curb the urge for a cigarette." Go back and read it again.

I had an absentee drunk father.My mom raised us, working two jobs.I don't have a damn bit of sympathy for someone who feels sorry for themselves, because their father was gone.MINE WAS, I made it.Quit blaming the world for your problems, and do your best.

Bacon, I can only respond to TSF, as I didn't see your response, and I can't go back on this phone to find it.I know you were addressing Arnold, but the situation was similar to mine, so I put my two cents in.
