There is no reason, not one, that I can think of, that we shouldn’t all be bringing in millions every year. If it’s simply a matter of hard work, because we know that’s how billionaires achieved their wealth, then I believe every American has it within them to do the same. And before you say, “but those people are smart, they have an advantage on us”, I say HogWash. They’re no smarter than a pig in a puddle; they haven’t any more brains than a chicken on a chair. Most of them don’t even know how to drive a stickshift, how smart can they be? No, it’s not brains, it’s not brawn (have you seen these folks), and it most certainly isn’t any savoir faire they’ve learned in the elite schools they have attended, it’s work; lots and lots of work, hard work, that’s it, that’s all, end of story.
