LOL. Do you have any clue what a 50,000 household income for two parents looks like? It ain't that bad I can assure you. No college fund, but my parents were able to scrape by while putting me in a private school. Fact is you put down a number thinking "oh how poor that must be", but in fact it isn't terrible. A family can live off 50,000.

I know the common argument is "well he worked for that blah blah blah." Sure, he's a brilliant man and he should be rewarded for that, but I find it really difficult to believe that Bill Gates contributed more to the economy in his life (last time I checked he was worth ~60 billion) than 200 million americans would in a year making the median american income. Just saying...




You fail to understand how complete the domination of Microsoft is on the market. Microsoft products make a lot of business possible and allow much of the 200 million americans to contribute the economy. Are you on a computer that runs Windows? Do you have MS Word? Are you using Internet Explorer?

You do not understand the capitalist system. It gives fair opportunity to the smart and the stupid, lazy, or ignorant. Unfortunately, ignorance, laziness, and stupidity do not pay well.
