its pretty cool

my one buddy refuses to wait in lines. He just goes to the fromt and pays the person in the front to go in the back. He was never like that when we were younger.

I think after awhile you just realize you can do anything with money.

Yeah but he's still going to places with lines, what a poor. If he had real money he'd shut the place down for a private function.

It must be awful having doors open for you because of your name. He does work hard don't get me wrong, but I would do if I knew I would be getting to become CEO at 34-35 when my dad retired.


At least he's talented and knowledgeable, unlike Lance Stroll.

If someone is smart and hard working, this country allows you to achieve pretty much anything you want. I know you're wanting to **** all over the rich by this comment, but reality says otherwise.

I concur that being born rich definitely has its privileges, but let's not act like those are the only people that can make a good life for themselves.

And if someone is born rich, stupid and lazy, this country allows you to achieve pretty much anything you want. I know you're wanting to **** all over an anti-capitalist by this comment, but reality says otherwise.

I concur that being born intelligent definitely has its privileges, but let's not act like those are the only people that can make a good life for themselves.

For some, sure.

In general is casting a WIDE net though.

What exactly are you trying to prove, bloop? Rich people have kids and sometimes (shocker), they aren't all that smart. But, they have family money and they use that to get somewhere/maintain in life.

Do you expect someone to dig ditches or work at McD's just because they aren't all that smart, regardless of their family money?

The point you seem to be downplaying is that anyone really has the means to make something out of their life, regardless of what they were born into. Isn't that the most important thing? I know though...ever the pessimist you are and it's easier to focus on a small percentage vs. what reality is really like.

Am I though? Please shed some light on how Trudeau doesn't fit into your little "rich/powerful person's kid succeeding" group that you're preaching to us about.

Tell us more, wise one.

I'm talking about your attempt to disprove tron's statement. It is misguided at best.

Also, please shed some light on your boi Donald J.

Or your boy George W.

I was merely pointing out that every country has a "system" like this in place and that it's ironic that a canadian would comment on it when they are no different than anyone else. I thought that was pretty easy to see, but apparently not (at least those who have blinders on to reality, like you seem to).

Nice try on the DT and GWB deflection though. At least you provide entertainment, I suppose.
