3. The stocks they own went up

Thatís where their net worth gain came from. What are they supposed to do, be bad at their jobs as CEOs so their stock price goes down?

5. I'm not a billionaire

But my retirements account did pretty well too. There was a nasty patch in the Spring of 2020, but as Warren Buffett says: Don't bet against America.

6. If you make $100k a year it takes 10 years to earn a million $

But it takes 10,000 years to earn a billion dollars.

There should be zero billionaires.

Ever.

Take that Fucking money back.

Tax them back into the millionaire class.

7. I know I'm not helping

But your post reminded me of a Buffett joke: How do you become a millionaire? Start with a billion dollars and buy an airline.

8. The truth of the matter is there was a big dip in the

Markets in the spring of 2020. I was surprised to see that some of my funds recently were showing a year over year return of 45 percent. It was sort of a statistical oddity. Just one of those things you ride out if you are a long term investor.
