True but what I have observed of intercst, his primary goal in life is to not work.

I can't believe his primary goal is to make fun of little old ladies' refrigerators on the internet, or just scan the news on a daily basis to find easy pickings to say something nasty about conservatives; yet that is all he apparently does.

If he is taking trips to the tropics with Doctors without Borders or actually doing something comparably useful with all his time, wealth, and abilities, bravo to him, and perhaps we could all benefit if he would post about THAT sort of productive, creative activity, rather than his constant and apparently pointless political, and personal, ranting.

I admire brilliant millionaires but I do think, esp. once they have decided they have a big enough pile of "loot" accumulated, enough to retire at a very young age (he's in his 40's or maybe 50's, correct?), they actually DO have at least a moral obligation to "give back."

Although I'm not by any means a "progressive" it seems to me a lot of you folks ARE.

You have a millionaire amongst you, a retired millionaire, and rather than actually try to get him to do something productive for society, all you do is encourage his politicized, pointless nastiness.

Oh well that's libtards for you. Better to curse the darkness than to light a flame.
