"Lying liberal?" That's misleading because that would mean there are honest ones. They don't exist.

Great job in getting old barn to sit, roll over and beg again, however!

<quoted text> hardly ever does a person have job thats pays enough to become wealthy. Now lottery winners actors sports players politicians CEO,s etc sometimes do. Hardly anyone becomes wealthy by working for another person or company. You gotta be self employed work long hours be frugal and have Know How to be Rich.
That's not true either. While working does not make one wealthy, working does provide the means in which to become wealthy. You don't have to be self-employed or even work long hours, though more hours does add up over time. You are correct in that you have to be frugal. I call it living within your means. The amount of money you make is irrelevent when it comes to building wealth. It's budgeting properly, saving and investing over the long term that can really add up. For instance, take a minimum wage earner that starts with a $250 initial investment at age 18. He contributes $50 every month until he is 62 years old. If he averages 12% during this time his investments have grown to a whopping $1,008,778.29! Not a bad retirement fund for minimum wage!

<quoted text> I think Its a certian core concept. Most successful people realize that their well being & success does not depend of other people things or conditions. If you believe and take positive actions those will be rewarded. I realized that you cant labor enough hours to really make any fortune. I try to have things that grow or make money when Im sleeping. My storage rental,s does that 24 x7 and I dont have to be present. Also dont deal with folks who havent got money. The old blood from a turnup theory. and you gotta be realistic I see folks who mess with horses they work their rears off training etc. when you could feed two cows for what a horse eats. The horse has a colt you gotta wean it and train it to sell it. The cows calves you can sell a 6 months. I sold 600 pound calves for an average of $850 this last fall. You gotta believe in yourself and realize you really dont need an employer.
"Most successful people realize that their well being & success does not depend of other people things or conditions."

Very well said! Note the words "most successful people." I try to make this point to my coworkers, but to no avail. They are so hell-bent on the union being necessary for their very survival. And a job loss means the loss of their homes, cars and lives. My dad raised me to always see opportunity in every misfortune.

My coworkers didn't understand my way of thinking a few years ago when we came close to losing our jobs. I was ready and excited to get out into the world and see what other opportunities awaited me. They were all scared shitless. Likewise, I didn't understand their way of thinking which was, "There is nothing else I can do if I lose this job."

Unfortunately, too many people seem to think along these lines. People have committed suicide over job losses. I just don't get that!

It depends. If one was given a 93% chance of surviving cancer, those are wonderful numbers in my book! That's the way I look at things. I made the same case when Bush was president and everyone was complaining about unemployment. A different president doesn't change my outlook. If it did, I could be called a hypocrite.

Here is the question again, please just give the post numbers where you posted your dumb down answers.

Never mind reposting, as I just did, just back up what your saying with some post numbers.
