    Nobody gets stiffed for unpaid water bills. That is a fully lien-able "tax like" obligation. Don't pay the water bill we have first lien on all your assets.

    I agree. It doesn't make them a loser, either. It makes them lucky.

    OCTOBER

    Hermitage Club President James Barnes announced a plan to raise funding for vendor debt repayment, property tax payments, and operations through what he called a one-time membership dues adjustment. The adjustment essentially meant doubling existing membership fees for the year, which would raise $5.5 million. A large portion of the funds raised were earmarked to pay vendors and contractors who had filed dozens of liens on club properties, as well as delinquent taxes in Wilmington and Dover.

    All I can say is that having, or not having money doesn't beget common sense. All parties involved here seem to be in over their heads.

    I don't have any ill will towards those more fortunate than myself, but I don't have a whole lot of sympathy for people who make dumb decisions. The owners, and yeah, a lot of the people who bought into the idea of a private ski club at Haystack seem to me to lack a lot of common sense.

    And that's just it. When you ski you're likely rubbing shoulders with the entire socio-economic spectrum. From ski bums sleeping in converted buses to wealthy fundies on vacation. And you know what, you never talk about it and I never ask. It's no big deal. But when it comes to decision making? A bad choice is a bad choice and deserves criticism.
    Dude.

    Nah, not so much as a hint of envy here.

    Explain your logic. Is everyone jealous of the silver spoon crowd?

    Seems to me Kusty is doing quite well for himself, travels wherever he wants to ski within reason and is generally content with his life.

    I'm not seeing the"envy" because he doesn't care for the elitist country club lifestyle. If he ripped on the gang lifestyle would you call him envious too?

    What it doesn't mean is any feeling Krusty has towards the Heritage crowd. But you keep pushing the issue. Why?

    If anything, I think it's you who envy high wealth people. That envy magnified because you haven't reached that status despite your self proclaimed expertise on financial markets and numerous other subjects that make you deserving in your mind of a CEO position. You're basically projecting your own envy on Kusty.

    Not everyone wants to be monetarily wealthy. Hell, lots of people would say real wealth lies in things like family, friendship and a life spent doing the things you love.
    Dude.
