Those Sorry Rich people,

There is Jon and Karen Huntsman, Barron Hilton, Michael Bloomberg, David Rockefeller, Paul G. Allen, George Lucas, Eli and Edythe Broad, Alfred Mann, Ted Turner and also that weird Bill Gates.


Do you know them?  Some I have never heard of. None of them have asked me to their house for Tea!  What do they have in common? Them dudes are RICH in capitol letters. Not millions, but BILLIONS!

What do they have in common? Well for one thing lots of folks envy them and want their money.  Many poor or less fortunate think these folk should share their wealth.  Most of those who want to share their wealth want it for  selfish purposes. ME & MY FAMILY DESERVE A PIECE OF YOUR PIE!


The above list also share one other thing in common,  they have set in motion for most of their wealth to be GIVEN away before they die or after their death.

To me the beauty of this is that these folks are wise enough to know where to distribute their money, they are not leaving it up to a government to decide. So we can relax, it ain’t coming to me or you. I do not  deserve one penny of Bill Gates money.  Where do they distribute it? In the form of medicines to third world countries. Grants for education. Research for vaccines, disease cures and hospitals. Cleaner water and to fight hunger and real poverty, etc.


Some of these folks inherited their money, some earned every penny of it. Either way these are just a few of the wealthy folk in this country who are doing good with their fortunes.


 Yeah, of course there are scrooges and there are millionaires on paper who really do not have what they appear to have etc. There are folks who have gotten rich by taking advantage of others lives.


By far our wealthy families are benevolent people.  Just because they don’t send me a check or invite me to dinner does not mean they are hard-hearted snotty rich folk. (maybe just snottySurprised smile, nah, I don’t mean that, but I realize I do not fit in that level of society.)


(You know this is taken in OUR toilet! LOL)

Some people are born business men, if they were to have catastrophe and lose everything, they would be back on their feet in a few years. Not everyone can do that.

Thanks for stoppin by.

Be a good steward of what is placed in your hands by honest work.


Bill and Melinda Gates have given away $28.3 BILLION. It would probably take you ten years to save that much!Confused smile

I feel richest of all for I am loved. I know some folks with deep pockets but they are not happy. Money helps but knowing you can make do with what you have and keep an honest smile on your face., well, that's happiness to me....

even in this bitter cold north winds weather. It's supposed to reach minus -55 today....windchill's no fun, but we're still smiling.

In my opinion, that is too much money for any person!

Everyone would like to have more money and less struggle. If I had that kind of money, I would have to share and not so much with the 3rd world countries but for people in my own country first!

I've never been jealous of people with money. I think if I wanted to be wealthy I could have tried harder and don't say marry a rich man Jack. They don't always turn loose of it. lol

I thought I was rich until I read
your blog. OH well I will make
do with what I have.

I always thought Dad was rich, because if I ask for a quarter to
go to the store he would give it
to me.

I am rich, I have a wonderful place to live, a car, clothes, my health, food and many friends.

Being rich isn't all about money but I do think like you that we all have to be good seawards of what we have. Whether a little or a lot we can waste it away if we're not mindful of what we do with it. I'm glad to hear that lots is given for the benefit of others. I have all I'll ever need. No I don't need the rich folks money either. Many do though.

Be a good steward with your money. I agree. There are so many people here that are hurting. If I was that rich I would do something to try to bring America back to the Christian Country it once was - IF that were possible.

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

I couldn't imagine having the type of money those wealthy people have. I wouldn't know what to do with it all, LOL, and probably would give away the majority of it myself. I think being a good steward of whatever our assets is what God would want us to do indeed!



Money can corrupt people. It's wonderful to see it used for so much good. But I agree a lot more needs to be done right here in this country, rather than all of it being spent on foreign shores.
