I don't care where the rich live. Incidentally, Chinese billionaires are the direct result of US manufacturers shipping their factories to China, DOH! And I do not hate millionaires AND billionaires. I happen to have a healthy respect for the late Steve Jobs, and for Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, as I did for Lear and many others. I just don't appreciate rich bastards who send their money offshore, legally or not but unpatriotically let the poor sucker middle class take up the slack.
Common people don't own stock, Rogue, don't kid yourself. Yes, they indirectly own stock in mutual funds where they don't decide on where their money is invested. Hey, do you know anyone who ever struck it rich owning mutual funds or whose pension money was invested in the market? The opposite, Rogue, the opposite. Your pension is govt-administrated. That is why it's still coming in every month. Imagine if you had worked for Enron or all those GWB- 2008 bankrupted companies.
Ah, it is America's anti-business laws that are forcing jobs overseas to laces like China. Why are Donald Trump's plane registered in Bermuda?
Now, what did G.W. Bush have to do with the bankruptcy of Enron?
Oh, I have TWO retirement plans. Yes, one is federal as I was a federal employee. But the other one is my own investments.
By the way, I go into the DOT.Com s late and got out late and lost about $10,000 when the DOT.COM bubble burst. But I learned my lesson well and sold my house in the Fall of 2008, banked it, bought a newer home in the Fall of 2008, and did well.
I also got most of my money out of the stock market in 2006 and all by the Fall of 2007 and got big into precious metals and did extremely well.
Last Feb. 2012 I bought $4,400 worth (ten shares) of APPL stock and sold in last Sep. for $6,600. Yep, 50% profit in just seven months. Now look at APPL's stock! It is now $431.44 a share and if I had held on to it I would be in the red on that trade!
I have quadrupled my net worth since 2006 and I am happy and retired. No, I am not a millionaire .... yet but I probably will be in the next year or two.

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
http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/07/17/25135...
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.
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.

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.

I am sort of surprised that there is no kick-back fro the tongue lashing Bill O'Reilly gave Alan Combes last night on the O'Reilly Factor. I thought Bill was out of line for calling Combes a liar repeatedly.
Oh oh, spoke to soon. Here is a kick-back.

Robert Menendez Prostitution 'Scandal'- How It Happened
By RHONDA SCHWARTZ, BRIAN ROSS and NED BERKOWITZ | Good Morning America –

New Jersey Democrat Sen. Robert Menendez is demanding an investigation into the political operatives who may have been behind an elaborate plot to embroil him in an international sex scandal.
"I have no idea who is behind these efforts, but I hope that the press will pursue them as vigorously to find out who was behind these efforts as they did in the first place," Menendez said Tuesday. "All I know is obviously there must be interests were trying to defeat me in my election and who obviously did not want to see me in my role as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee."

Why must you be so wrong ALL the time? It is NOT the U.S.'s anti-business laws that are driving jobs overseas. ALL so-called 1st world countries have lost and are losing business to Asia and Mexico. Are they ALL anti-business? No. But, they are victims to Asia's (mostly China's) and Mexico's $1.00 to $5.00 hourly wage, if that much. No tax incentives and holidays can match that. Stop harping on Unions and taxes, you are barking up the wrong tree, as usual.

As to Trump's Bermuda registration of his personal jet, well, Rogue, don't you think he has enough money? The Bermuda registration is pure greed and lousy citizenship, is all.

ALL countries, the so-called rich ones, have ALL their ships registered in Liberia, Bermuda, Bahamas, etc. Carnival, the largest fleet in the world, does not have a single ship registered in the U.S. Did you know that not ONE medium to high-tonnage ship, passenger or cargo that is American-owned, not ONE, is registered in the US? Even the Great Lakes steamers. Go after those for a change.

What did the communist threat have to do with "One nation under God?". If being "under God" defeated the evil empire, then why'd you bother gettting all those armaments and nuclear weapons? Hmmm, didn't have sufficient faith in the Lord to protect you? I'm sure He'll punish you for that.
