And how many USED TO BE on that Forbes 400 list and blew Daddy's money and are now poor? Just because you inherit money, does not mean you will stay rich. Just look at the Vanderbilt who in three generations lost what Cornelius Vanderbilt had built!
But, the Forbers 400 are only 400 people and there are 3,068.000 millionaires in the US. Methinks Wojo is comparing apples to oranges again!!!
What is Rougie smoking?
