    On the other hand - take a look at your birth certificate. No where does it say: "Give this one an easy pass through life".

    At some point someone had to claw their way up whether it was current generation or some of the past ones.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Good post Charlie. Some might consider various people to be the "haves". But yes: They knocked themselves silly with hard work to get there . Hence they CERTAINLY DO INDEED DESERVE to be "haves". Not all were born with it.

    Ooops, I guess I just went political. With a post that has nothing to do with md'ing. Oh well .

    Was it ethical gain while they clawed their way to the top? I’m a haves. I’m still here in the garden with a loving family.
    Thank God.

    I should have stopped reading after the original post but I didn't and have wasted a bit of time that I didn't really have to waste.

    Lack of Details made me wonder if you felt you could slip it by not mentioning Names or topic

    I know that's how I'd do it

    I agree, the OP was very vague.

    I did not name any names, it was a reminder to not become political. Thread is open invitation to politics, Ammoman post (below) was just above mine was not political either, it was a reminder to keep replies non-political.

    I'm not a "haves" or a "haves not"
    I'm a "haves enough"
    I have been very fortunate in my life, in that I have a great family, friends, and a successful career.
    We are in America, and have the opportunity to be as successful as we would like. It all comes down to how hard you want to work to achieve the things you want. Sure it seems that some have advantage over others, but that's just the way it is. I live by my morals not my money and try not to judge others for the things they choose to do, as long as it doesn't effect what I choose to do.
    I have allot of respect for the"haves" that started at the bottom and worked for what they have, but I doubt they are any happier then I.

    It kind of reminds me of an episode of "Shark Tank". One of the billionare sharks (no names) when told by the guy looking for investors that he runs marathons (or half - I don't recall accurately) told him something like: "I'm out - if you find time to train for marathons and you're not working 24/7 on your business, you are not focused enough for me". I turned to my wife and said "Guess I'm never going to be a billionare - then again, I guess I don't want to be". I can't accept that the good Lord put us here with the intention that we never find time for anything except gathering wealth - for what? So that someday people can say - "There is old so-and-so. He's the richest guy in the cemetery." Sorry for the soapbox speech. Just my opinion, (or my way of rationalizing my lack of monetary wealth).

    Lots of people want to be rich. Otherwise they wouldn’t sell so many lotto tickets. I don’t buy them. I don’t like playing games I always louse at.
