    What everyone should look at is the little green and red triangles.

    Green up triangle means they made a few billions.
    Red down triangles means they lost a few billions.

    is not their fault, nor their duty to do so, they have earned their money fair and square for the most part, and you shouldn`t be bitching, just because you ain`t got it

    it becomes a game to these people. they want to see how many bn`s they can make.

    if you had 29485721390547 fairy dollars in WoW, would you redistribute it amongst the rest of the WoW population.

    oh, and gates actually does have a huge group of people employed full time to give out his money...but somehow THAT just brings him in more

    Warren Buffet is going to be number 1 again in no time, his assets took an expected dip. But man they lost a lot, Buffet had an estimated $62b, Helu was estimated $60b and Gates at $58b just last year!

    Oh and daily trivia: can anyone guess which company the fifth richest man and his family own?

    Warren Buffet is my Hero. He`s a frugal Billionaire. Still lives in the same house and drive the same Buick. The sad thing is all these young folks know about these young stars and starlets and all the material things that they buy, but when you talk about the really wealthy people like Larry Ellison, Warren Buffet, or even good old Sam Walton, they wouldn`t know what the heck you`re talking about. In this economy, you`d better learn to pay yourself first and figure out ways of lowering your tax bracket BIG TIME! (Sandy Botkin)

    "...or even good old Sam Walton, they wouldn`t know what the heck you`re talking about"

    If anyone in the United States doesn`t know the name Sam Walton or at least the Walton family, I will have officially lost all faith in humanity.

    Hahaha, most of them are American. I wondered where all our money was going... It`s funny how many countries are struggling for housing and food in this recession, but just about every American can afford a brand new iPhone or MacBook, or McDonalds every day.

    Most of these folks attend the Bohemian Grove club near the town of Occidental ( or accidental as we called it) in Northern Cal. If you want to know where the new Roman empire holds court and decides your pitiful fate, this is probably the place. And these people will make sure to keep you out with the black helicopters. I lived near there, and was chased out while target shooting at a site I had been going to for years, I felt like I was in a sci-fi flick. It was weird to say the least.
