Well, I stand corrected. Thank you. So, one of your closest allies, apart from being undemocratic, repressive and misgonynist, has 60% of its people living below the poverty line. Bravo, and thanks for sinking yourself even deeper without my help. And so they buy huge amounts of U.S. weapons, bravo U.S. for arming this repressive undemocratic regime to the teeth so that S.Arabia can used these weapons to better repress its ciizens and neighbours, why, just in case, you never know.<quoted text>
You are wrong about the "average" Saudi. They are far from being free to do what they want.
60% of Saudi citizens live below poverty line: Saudi daily
If you are a member of the Saudi royal family, you will live well regardless of what you do. If you are not royal, you have to suck up to the royals to do anything.
Most of the Saudi royals did not earn what they get whereas here in America about 90% of all millionaire BUILT their fortunes though hard work.
Prove that 90? of millionaires built their own fortunes through hard work. Just not true. Gates, Jobs, Leer, Buffett, are the exceptions. Most others founded and built zilch. They were appointed CEO, GIVEN huge stock holdings for free and run some of those companies, companies founded by what you correctly said built their own fortunes, into the ground of close to fiscal disaster. Are you trying to tell me that all major US banks,brokerage houses, the big Three, Boeing, etc, are run by their founders? So many other big names run by CEOs and boards that own a fraction of their companies yet make all the big and often disastrous decisions.
