Warren Buffet is worth 39 billion dollars, according to my ten second google.
If he loses 38 of his 39 billion, he is still very rich.
How many of the very nice people he employs now would still have their jobs if he lost 38 out if his 39 billion? My nice ten second Google search turned up that his company, from which he derives that wealth employs 260,519 people. How many still have jobs after a loss like what you describe?
Because that nice Mr Buffet still has a billion.
Yes and again, what would the quarter million people he employs have?
In fact, he could lose 99% of his worth, and he would be very rich indeed, wouldn't he?
I doubt it. See the idiots who look only at the final number will now come back and declare that since he has a billion dollars and another quarter million people are out of work, that he is still so fortunate and this should give most of it to help the quarter million people he formerly employed.
But that isn't the same for people like us, is it? For people who aren't as fortunate as us, it's very hard indeed.
Speak for yourself. My first job was as a dishwasher. I've changed bed pans, delivered pizza, parked cars and done pretty much anything else necessary to get by when climbing those first rungs of the ladder.
If you are a teacher, say, or you work in a shop, and you lose 99% of your wealth, or your job, I imagine you would find it difficult to pay your mortgage, or your children's school fees, or whatever, and you would find it difficult to survive.
For such a thing to happen would require an incredibly catastrophic event that would exhaust all of the salaries from two jobs (while we live within one salary), all of our savings and perhaps even things like life insurance presuming someone took ill and died.
Wouldn't you, trumptman?
Unless a law were passed making my employment impossible, I'd find a way because I always have and I always will. I've never been unemployed nor had long periods of unemployment even through multiple recessions and even when I was just a student getting my degree. I show up, work hard, don't bring or cause any drama and in short, I bring a good return. Employers have always tried to retain me, offer me more hours, responsibility and salary.
This is still very true not just of myself but the economy in general. Almost everyone I know is skilled and employed and most of my friends and family members are working 40-60 hrs a week while getting paid very well. Those who are not have clear causes for employment trouble and take their train wreck issues from short term job to short term job.
And, indeed, that is exactly what has happened. The poor, and the middle class, have been hit hardest.
Most people who were not overextended have done just fine. In fact I would go further and say most people I know who want to work, even regardless of legal or illegal status find and keep work. Much like in Europe, it is the dependent class, who wants a check and also wants a bunch of immigrants to do the work they won't do, who have problems.
Anyone who denies this is a liar and a selfish prick with a very sad, little heart.
Anyone who would believe someone who deals in hyperbole instead of facts and who wants to toss out emotional appeals and name calling probably had many more issues and concerns than you and your names.
You are not going to deny this, are you trumptman?
Deny that you make up nonsense, have no concept of the numbers behind your claims and that you are trolling, why I'd never deny that.
