So if it's that easy, why do so many people who win multi millions in the lottery end up broke in a matter of a few years?

It's not what you have that's important......

It's what you do with it.

I don't like winner mentalities, either.

Winner mentalities, also, were pushed by the liberals.

Trophies given, were actually atrophies of personal development.

I don't like the Bernies, much.

Bernie thinks of himself as the Wizard of Oz. He just may be. He just may be to his supporters.

Just wait till his balloon pops.

I don't think he's very well cushioned for his fall. He's been adding sand bags to bring him back to earth.

Where did he get the sand for his bags? From the donators!

It's not just Bernie supporters. All the Democrat candidates want to appeal to the lowest common denominator and slackers.

I know Bernie supporters in my line of work (software engineering) and they are doing just fine.

Sure Bernie was poor and yes he was on some sort of government assistance. Yet he WORKED his way out of the hole he found himself in. Helped people was arrested for fighting for something he believed in wrote a book, book made him rich still helps people. I don’t see Hillary or Trump helping anyone.

Stressed, it’s what you do with the money that makes the difference. Trump was smart about it but without he would of been a bum. Oh wait he is a bum.

Most dems are that way, as they are a party of victims. Successful people do not perceive themselves as victims and have a positive outlook on life.

Ever run across a happy lib? They all seem pissed off at the world about something. I could not go through life that way, as I am an unabashed optimist. Heck, I have found positives with having cancer; my wife says I would find the good aspects of hell and enjoy being there.

And yet here he is . ... President of the United States of America.

Arguably the most powerful man in the world......


And with all of your brilliance and insight.....

You're not.

With the Bernie supporter I know, I can't say he was a loser. He did have a low wage job, but was a good solid worker. But he didn't want to better himself, and was fine with what he did. I will say, when we are all in a group and see something really nice, like a boat or expensive car he is the only one that will whine about " it must be nice to be able to afford that" while the rest of us just appreciate it for what it is.
