Get that "Job Creator" a Tax Break. Perhaps we could take some money from Granny's Medicare to do it

"Her father is one of the small group of Russians who became fabulously wealthy during the post-Soviet privatization of the economy and are known as oligarchs. His the former owner of fertilizer business Uralkali."

So, let me get this straight. Her dad use to own a fertilizer business, but during the post-Soviet privatization of the economy became wealthy enough to become a billionare.

Ok, note to self: Move to a communist country. Wait for eventual "privatization of the economy", and then work closely with the statist and neo-facist state rulers to engage in businesses that are indirectly given state granted monopolies in various industries while claiming it was simply privatization.

Cool. . .

Befriend Cindy McCain, have John Earmark a piece of property adjacent to a militarry base for you, which you buy for a song. Then the Defense Department decides they need the land and pay you ten times what you bought it for. Works the same all over

Why is this news? What else is expected? Some months ago two homo sapienses got married and the whole world watched and reveled at it. They have no achievement to their names except that chromosomes put them in a famed bloodline. Yet we can't accept something coz it's not anglo-saxon?? That too the daughter of a successful businessman who earned his money and didn't magically inherit

I hope they don't tax this kind of productivity too harshly.

Fertilizer...So if it were not for him we wouldn't have any? Tax him less then someone who went to medical school? Can't tell the difference between land that makes one wealthy and another who does it through hard work?

Yes this Job Creator actually got McCain to earmark the land between the Ammunition Bunkers and the Airstrip for sale to the public then sold it back to the Air Force for a bundle. That's what I call productive

Sigh, this is a boring turn of events. I was relishing the thought of a lot of righteous anger, or at least some guy's posting how 'hot' the daugher is. *shakes head* I think it is ridiculous, personally. She could probably pay the student loans of all the students in her class, AND still have afforded a multi-million dollar apartment.
