Compared to many other children of wealthy parents, they've conducted themselves well appear to be mature. All three of the older children are in (seemingly) successful marriages, and two of them have families they're raising. There aren't many reports of drug/gambling/alcohol problems or excessive partying.

What makes you think they're not hardworking? Just b/c they joined the family business doesn't mean they're not hardworking or focused.
They may be hardworking. I really don't know.

I think many people who received millions of dollars from their parents could start a successful business. Working hard or not.

Of course, having wealthy parents is an advantage -- nobody is denying that. All I was saying is the fact that their family was successful is no reason to attack them. Just b/c someone is wealthy, it doesn't mean they're a bad person. Many parents work hard for their childrens' benefit -- not sure why this is a bad thing.

Even if your parents spot you some cash, it's not necessarily easy to start a successful business. It's probably easier to start a business period (b/c you can self finance some or most of it), but that doesn't necessarily increase the chances of it being successful.

Default slander from the top down

We are controlled and led by speculators and usurers. Every cultural choke point is controlled by the usurer class. Folks like George Soros & Steven Cohen control vast empires of media and pull the strings behind the politicians. These folks have do not approve of Trump. Trump is independent. Thus all of the media outlets controlled by the speculator class has ferociously attempted to discredit Trump. To the dismay of the few usurers that rule the world, Trump won. Since they do control the masses the banksters have won the battle in that it is not acceptable to hold views counter to speculators dictated dogma. Outwardly supporting Trump - especially in New York- is not approved by the cultural mandarins and will expose an individual to slander and social disapproval.

How stupid do you think we are?
This is a disgusting anti-Semitic post and has been reported to the moderator.

Two things about this post:
1. There is nothing antisemitic about it
2. The post is 100% true & your accusation is an attempt to silence that truth using bullying and a well-worn P.C. card

Don't you know that this country is against bullying, it is terrible?

She has further proved my point. If your post does not agree with their dogma the ad hominem attacks are launched. They actually don't have a counter point, nor is anything based in truth. It is just nihilistic personal attacks, just like in the media against Trump, this board is reminiscent of the tactics used in the Hilary campaign.

OMG is everyone on this board anti-Semitic?
Talking about "usurers" (money-lenders) and cultural "mandarins"/cultural elites - Everyone knows these are code words for Jews.
Trump has really gotten to you it seems.

It's not dogma.

It would just be nice if you wouldn't engage in anti-Semitism.
Do you think you could manage that?

Rightfully so, Trump supporters can move to the various red states if they want to speak their mind. Tennessee, Texas, Kentucky, Georgia, Indiana and the dozens of other poor, boring states. There are so many to choose from, but they insist on living in the most democratic city in this country and reap all the benefits from it.
