So she is lazier and has worked less than anyone she is critizing.

There's an old school jam that says "think it ain't illegal yet." That someone inherits money doesn't mean they're lazy. But even if she is, that's irrelevant. Lazy can be good food. But it's tweaked to be lazy and then complain about the wealth of others.

Plus the money was earned by a man who applied himself well. That he gave a lot of what he generated to his daughter doesn't change that. What? If someone is born poor and earns millions their inheritors shouldn't appreciate the effort that generated the money. And again her comment was aimed at those who are jealous of the rich. If she'd really said what the OP posted in the title that would be another thing.

BTW those posting on here acting like they're poor are clueless. You may not be wealthy but you aren't poor.

I come from a very conservative family (although I am not myself) that has benefited from recent tax laws, but could never understand the defense of disproportionally taxing the poor over the wealthy.

I also find her comments to be fairly ironic considering her form of inheritance.

If anyone "twisted" her meaning, it was the headline writer. And while I often post my own as a thread title, this one was close enough to her message to go with "as is". (Seems that she has a "then let them eat cake" attitude).

Now lets take the "... should work harder" part. IF many Western societies did not pursue an economic "race to the bottom", @ least working harder would be a fairer trade between personal time and more assets.

But the relatively well paid manufacturing jobs that let Henry Ford tell his fellow industrialists a century ago (to justify his paying the then princely wage of $5 a day) "... so they can afford to buy my cars" (and of course, what the others made, like Edison's phonographs) have disappeared; OR have newer workers paid far less than those they replace earned, adjusted for inflation.

Now more and more countries that had a "we're all in it together" ethos send those jobs to the lowest wage places they can find (or make "bid down", to not be out of the running). And it isn't just manufacturing, but service jobs too. Try calling tech support for your PC if you doubt that. (And even if lets say Apple keeps that function here, see where a Mac is made).

Re: World's richest woman says poor should have less fun, work harder

maybe instead of talking smack she should do some proper work herself.

Would rather be poor than look like a fat piece of shit like her.

People act like being poor makes one noble or virtuous. It doesn't.
So he got rich selling a dangerous mineral that has killed countless people all around the world.

Well, thanks a lot, fat bitch's daddy!

. I think she is just being defensive. Hint: she did not "work hard" in obtaining her assets.

clearly you are not taking your own advice.

look at her and say with a straight face that she aint lazy? think man, use your brain (if you have one)

and yes if you inherit your fortune and you sit around all do day eating and talking about how lazy poor people are, you are 100000X lazier than even the panhandler, because he has to move around at some point.

this needed its own post.

NO ONE in this thread has said they are poor. in fact in all my years posting here I have never read a single post where someone claimed to be impoverished. so you can not play this game where you pretend someone said something they did NOT say and attack them for it. before you are so quick to attack, i suggest you learn to read what people have ACTUALLY said and respond to that.
