Has anyone ever given a thought to actually doing something positive in their world... producing something useful... etc as opposed to the usual sermon you get from MLM reps: "How would you like to stay at home, do nothing and make a ton of money?..."

Whatever happened to the good old fashioned work ethic?... what do Amway amd Quixtar actually contribuite to society?

You know, I'm a computer programmer.... but I happen to live in a small town and pay isn't all that great, but I am actually doing something useful... I make someone's life easier, I automate processes that would otherwise require a person to crunch numbers by hand until their eyesight is gone and their brains explode... yes, I could be doing something even more useful, but I'm proud of what I do... what do YOU do besides making a lot of money by using others (many of whom are just desperate to make a buck because they're in debt).

What about the engineer that designed the products that Amway is marketing... what about the farmer who works hard so you can enjoy real food.... WHAT IS WRONG WITH GOOD OLD FASHIONED HONEST WORK?

I don't care if y'all get filthy rich off all your damn schemes... I believe there's a heck of a lot more to life than easy money.
There's value in knowing that someone somewhere benefited from your work (as opposed to you benefiting from sticking your slimy fingers in everybody's wallet).
