Billionaires Should Not Exist

I believe that no one should have that much money. No bullying, inappropriateness, or being annoying.

Billionaires Should Not Exist

Hello g:

I like your use of the word "should", instead of saying must.. In my view, a couple hundred million would suffice. So, I think after that, a person should GIVE it away. Kinda like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are doing.

But, I don't want a government telling me that I can't get as rich as I want..

While poverty and homelessness exist, there shouldn't be billionaires. Let's put into perspective. 100 seconds is almost 2 minutes. 1,000 seconds is almost 17 minutes. 10,000 is 2 & 3/4 hours. 100,000 seconds is almost 28 hours. 1 million seconds is 11 and a half hours. 10 million seconds is 16 and a half weeks. 100 million seconds is about 3 and a half years. 1 billion seconds is 34 years. There are people who cannot afford food or a home. There are people who can't afford medical treatment. No one needs a billion dollars.

Absolutely completely agree.

Let's not forget the proud billionaires that spend millions to elect those who would do away with health care AND regulations that force them to keep the air and water clean! SOO expensive! They would rather pay lobbyists and politicians to deregulate and cut their taxes than help their country OR its people! :-(

And if you got rid of all billionaires, they still wouldn't be able to afford food or a home, and the rest of would be jobless.

My money takes nothing from you. A rich CEO has not taken anything from me. If there’s something I cannot afford, it has nothing to do with Bill Gates.

Not all billionaires are Christian, I know, but if they claim to be, they should realize that: "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to get to heaven." (Some guy high up in the pecking order is alleged to have said something like that.) Ignoring it would seem a bit hypocritical. Like, the only words that apply to THEM are the words that make them LOOK like "good Christians" while they "entertain" porn stars!??? :-)

Except that you don't believe any of that, making the point meaningless.

Of course they should and do , why should the poor and weak exist and billionaires not?

To certain people in third world countries the average American or European is rich beyond their wildest dreams do you think about this much or is your ire just reserved for billionaires?

If there were no billionaires you would be paying the taxes that they have been paying. Know what that would do for your savings account?

If billionaires didn't exist, we wouldn't have a modern military. We couldn't afford it. You jealous bastards just want to spread the wealth around. Admit it.

Wtf? Tax is charged as a percentage of your income you dumb fuck. If there are no billionaires then there are no billionaire tax rates. Besides which, most billionaires cheat their taxes in the first place. They have so much money, they can literally afford to pay professionals to tell them how to dodge tax and get away with it.

If billionaires didn't exist, we wouldn't have a modern military.

Cool. If socialists didn't exist, you wouldn't have internet or pizza. How about that, moron?

You jealous bastards

I'm jealous of you in the same way I'm jealous of everybody who steals from me and then pretends they have the moral high ground. Go suck on a gas pipe, you worthless crotch sniffer.

The top 3 percent pay the majority of taxes. If they didn't exist, the rest of us would have to take up the slack. How much are you willing to pay?
