You know, there’s not a person on this earth that’s worth over $100 million that came by that money honestly. Why don’t you take a look at the old money?
The Vanderbilts, the Carnegies, the Gettys, the Morgans, the Hearsts, the Rockefellers.
How do you think they got all that money?
They just annexed territories and licences and businesses and killed the native population and imported slaves and sold guns to both the north and south during the Civil War and controlled the politicians. And they’re heroes, they’re American heroes.
We teach our children what? Honesty and hard work are the keys to success?
My children… My children are not gonna go off to some war. They’re gonna go to Yale. They’re gonna go to Harvard.
And it’s gonna be the dumb, stupid, white trash kids and the black ghetto kids that are gonna.. They’re gonna fight America’s senseless wars? And they’re gonna protect American security and businesses. And it’s gonna be my business. My business is gonna get richer and richer. And my bonuses are gonna get bigger and bigger!
It’s the same old story. It’s the bankers and the owners and advisors who get rich! And it’s the little people who buy their stock that always lose in the end. To people like you!
It’s a free trade system, it’s capitalism, that’s competition in a capitalist society. That’s how the cream always rises to the top.
