We pay people amazingly amounts of money to do nothing....
Yet people who make a difference in peoples lives in the tens, if not hundred daily get paid next to nothing .....no wonder this country is failing

Reason #2 the country is failing: We've got people out there saying things like "amazingly amounts of money."

If money is your determiner in this equation, you're already sunk.
I've worked good and hard for the past three+ years helping people in my business and it's been well worth every minute of effort. I've received no financial compensation however due to economic conditions (which I'm openly vocal about) but I look forward to the opportunities to serve tomorrow. They say "what comes around, goes around" but that's not my motivation and I'm most definitely not alone.

To me it's simple, in life we have two basic choices: serve yourselves and you can make a difference in 1 life, serve others and you can make a difference in many lives!

Very well said Patty... :thumb:

I left a VERY cushy role in CHITown around 1990 so that I could spend time with my parents, siblings, aunts/uncles/cousins... AND start a family of my own... No regrets (but my bank account isnt as fat as it once was)...

Hey Killr, carve out some time and watch the movie Hook with your daughter(peter pan) (the newer one with Robin WIlliams)... It will make you feel better for two reasons... ;) There are some VERY VERY empty souls out there amongst the ranks of those "rich" folks...


YOU my friend are the one that is truly rich...

We're all givers or takers, I suppose.

Hey man, its FRIDAY... The bills are paid... Everyone is healthy... A bag of chips / a bag of charcoal and a few pounds of hamburger & family/friends is all anyone needs...

If only my hydro was finished......... :duh:

No argument from me on that point sir... THey are going to implode, they suck cities dry of $$$ and thnk that they can hold a city for ransom for new stadiums/TIFs... Screw the "celebs"...

Clean house in D.C. and in the Cali state capitol... HONESTLY, for all that California has to offer, and I DO love it there, they are totally EFFEeedd from a political perspective... It's not nearly that bad elsewhere in the nation... Clean house... Be vocal... Come and sound off in the PRF with the rest of us that are FED UP... <----- kidding hil:)

Life isn't fair! I suppose there are more people seeking entertainment than brain surgery but the simple laws of supply and demand apply here. As long as people keep the line at the box office crowded, they'll continue to earn as they do. I don't go to the theater to see movies so don't blame me. It wasn't me that bought Johnny Depp his own personal island.

Greeting's from the couch,
I could not agree more. Supply and demand applies to the individual usually who's needs aren't immediately met ....
Uncomfy,

Some of those sports figures and entertainers do a tremendous amount of help with the money and fame, others not so much.

In my opinion, the group that should be getting paid higher with better benefits is the men and women in our armed forces. Especially those overseas in foreign land in harms way defending our nations liberty and freedom. Those are some seriously under paid hero's that are away from their families for a year or more at a time and they deserve more from us. I would have no problem with some of my tax dollars being diverted to give them the credit they deserve.
