Maybe they rob banks or manage ponzi scheme funds, maybe some are professionals or self employed

I don't mean to brag but I am a circus clown during the day and work evenings mugging old ladies. Probably explains why I don't hang out on this forum very much????

Now that I have free health care, food stamps, Obamaphones for the family and housing subsidies, I can spend all my $$ on home theater!

Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.

I manage a number of very high class, extremely beautiful, highly intelligent, and very very very talented female escorts. They are all over 22 and most either have graduate degrees or are pursuing them. Not surprisingly, none are encumbered with college debt or graduate school debt. I know my strengths and areas of expertise so I make our ladies available only to members of the opposite sex. My average lady (although there is nothing at all average about them) usually ends up marrying a client or the client's father within 3 to 5 years of initial employment with my service. They really end up being a lot more than a trophy wife and I take great pride in my role in training these young ladies and facilitating their pathway towards their and their clients ultimate success.

Thats exactly the kind of elitist crap I hate and why I don't post on this forum. Buying footstamps dirt cheap...crackhead connections...cars with eject buttons. You probably still have all your teeth too. I HATE YOU BOND!!!!! :-)
