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 snotty, 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.
DID U KNOW?
Bill and Melinda Gates have given away $28.3 BILLION. It would probably take you ten years to save that much!

This is the Martin Aerodynamic prototype, 1928 built in St. Louis If I remember right, but never was produced.
