    Lets say you start a business

    and it does well enough but you have to work hard for it all. At what point would be enough? Please remember some money has to go back into the business, and i would need to cover my own retirement fund. So other then that, how much would you say should someone expect to keep...

    If anything truly is disgusting,

    this has to be it...I've heard that it would take approximately 92 billion dollars or something like that, to end poverty completely, & yet we spent like 7 trillion on the war in Iraq...I'm not sure how close the numbers really are, but it makes my stomach turn just thinking...
