Which is why I donít own any mutual or index funds
exactly, I have uncles that are millionaires, they are old and still live scared to spend any money, they will die with millions of money sitting around, what a freaking waste of life. I hope when I die that I have exhausted most of my money.

You donít comprehend my meaning, no surprise

I manage my own portfolio, I buy and sell individual stocks in companies that I deem valuable.

I donít own mutual funds as I donít trust the motives or pay structure of those that manage them, I donít buy index fund as I have beaten the indexes over 9 years out of 10 picking my own stocks.

Although I am not "rich" by most peoples definition I do hope to leave a legacy to my children and their children. And I support scientific and charitable organizations that I deem worthy.

I have every intention of growing that pool of funds far beyond what it is now, even as I live off of it in retirement.

The only reason I am not a wealthy person now, is because I enjoy life a little too much.

You have that choice to buy and sell stocks, who doesn't? Does that make you special? You seem so proud to announce that. Some people do buy mutual funds, now are an expert? It's people like you that stalemate the economy. I don't live and work hard to make sure my kids will inherit money. Instead I invest in their education like my younger son that will be a Doctor in a Specialized field. That was my point fool, enjoy life now.

lol..so you drug test those that are renting from you? Stop lying, you keep getting deeper. Having a Rental property is not the same as "having a company".

If it cost 25 cents to go completely around the world, Riccardo La Faggotino couldn't afford to get out of sight. Any children he has are in zoos being studied by forensic pathologists.

I was just commenting on your misunderstand my meaning. Mutual funds are fine for people that do not have the time or interest in managing their own portfolio. I donít belittle those that do, I prefer not to.

I donít live and work to insure my children inherit either, I do it for my own pleasure and me and my wifeís interests, however it is not difficult to build a legacy

I also invest in education, there are a lot of politically motivated anti-education people out there, their schemes only work when people are uneducated and gullible.

I never said I was better than anyone else, in fact 2 of my children are more well off than I am, good for them, I raised them well.

I am only alive because of advances in medical science, so I tend to favor that field myself.

What??? My rental properties have nothing to do with my businesses. If you plan to live inside your bubble and punch a timeclock the rest of your life,have at it. In your case,your life's motto can be "Nothing ventured,nothing gained".

You have been ranting about how your employees are drug tested and you are scared you might lose some if pot was legal. What kind of job drug tests? I have had great jobs where I timed in, I don't now. Why do you belittle people? Personally I would not want the headaches of being a property manager, to me it's not that exciting, I'm more creative, in the arts. Id rather have a job with less pay and more happiness. Why can't you argue why pot should not be legal instead of your childish insults of my motto or my work which both you have no idea.

The problem with you is that all your posts are insults, not one with any substance or any points to the topic. That's why everyone thinks your nuts or just spam. You mad bro?

Why do you use the word "legal" instead of "legal for prescribed medical use" only ?

The prescribed for medical use is a sham, I doubt 80% of people with a card have a condition that needs pot. But it's a good start and test. It has shown there is no reason to keep it illegal for everyone over 18. I'd rather be on the road with a stoner then a drunk. Make it legal and it will take away another drug the gangs sell. Instead of spending millions on helicopters flying around killing a weed, and expensive jail costs, spend it on going after gang bangers.

LOL you donít have to apologize for insults, I have used them as well, perhaps sometimes too often.

I am serious though, everyone I knew who had my condition... died.

I have been alive for 16 years with it now.

I owe medical science, and I pay my debts.
