I had to weigh in on this one.
It is estimated that she makes $600 a second. And how? Oh – because she inherited a mining company.
Let’s take a look at what sage advice she has for Australian workers:
… there “is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire” — “if you’re jealous of those with more money, don’t just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself — spend less time drinking or smoking and socializing, and more time working.”
In the meantime, Ms. Rinehart advocates cutting wages of Australian workers because they need to compete with Africans who make $2 a day.
Don’t you just love it when someone who was born on third base tries to pretend that they hit a home-run all by themselves? It kind of reminds me of someone else.
Does anyone doubt for one minute that there is an elite group of people who want to kill living wages for workers…and cut and slash every social program so that they can continue to keep and hoard every penny…every resource…for themselves?

I heard a apt label for those people. Drawbridge Republicans. They got in, now they pull up the drawbridge so nobody else can get in. It’s the ‘I have mine, screw you’ mentality.
Our Gina is a real peach. Oh yeah…even her kids(some of them) don’t like her. Talk about washing dirty linen in public!
Loved the third base line. You go Rockyann.
How about this for a way of the economic crisis: take her wealth, let her work and show us how “it should be done”. I don’t suspect it make much difference but at least we’d have OUR money back off her.
Yes, we didn’t like that Gina at all. Drop her in a mineshaft and leave her there.
