Like father like daughter

Trolling isn't just for pimply teenagers hiding behind their computer screen. Its also for billionaire mining magnates hiding in their ivory towers.

Trolllololollooollll. Lang Hancock was a nasty old bigot but probably not serious about poisoning Aboriginies as he suggests in the video to the right. Probably just trying to get a rise out of people. So lets see what his daughter is like.....

"The millionaires and billionaires who choose to invest in Australia are actually those who most help the poor and our young. This secret needs to be spread widely" - Gina Rinehart

Oh yes. A big fat troll like her old man. You know the best policy with trolls? Ignore them. Ignore them and they go away. Some people will have idiotic opinions and others will have opinions they affect for the purpose of pissing off people they hate. The solution is to ignore them. I am almost angry with myself for writing about this on my blog.


Just be grateful for small mercies like this African kid and get on with life.

But apparently I have to keep writing because I have photoshopped this fucking hillarious picture of Jabba the Hutt and Gina Rinehart and now my post will look ugly if I don't write some more text to go along side all the pictures I am putting in this post.

Man fuck this Gina Rinehart. Gina you bitch, give the money to Rose! Rose was pretty fucking dumb but you are dumb AND offensive. Have you no self awareness?

""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 yourselves -- spend less time drinking, or smoking and socializing, and more time working."" - Gina Rinehart

Yes that is true Gina. There is no monopoly on being a millionaire. I am a millionaire here in Indonesia. I have many millions of rupiah sitting in my bank account. There is however a monopoly on being a trust fund baby, inheriting a fortune from your bigot father and living a life others can only dream of. There is a monopoly on that because it would be physically impossible for everybody in Australia to be that rich. If everybody followed your advice today and had as much money as you tomorrow, hyper inflation would take hold and a hamburger would cost a million dollars and none of us would be "rich". You can't be rich without others being poor.

I don't hate rich people just for being rich. Of course when I say rich people I mean anybody richer than me. I don't hate people that are richer than me just because they are richer than me. The main reason is because there are many people in the world poorer than me and I don't want them to hate me just because I am richer than them.

If you are one of the African fellows working for $2 a day you might resent my wealth. Sitting as I do not at the top of the food chain and not at the bottom perhaps I have a better perspective than Gina Rinehart. I can see that for me to be privileged, others have to be disadvantaged. For me and other Australians to live as well as we do, people in other countries have to have less. However I am not going to give half of my wealth to Africa so that we can all be more equal. I like being privileged. I like having more opportunities in life. So I will defend my wealth.

It logically follows that I respect the right of those that are richer than me to defend their wealth also. Gina, I respect your right to defend your wealth as I expect others to respect my right to defend my wealth. Some part of the reason why Gina Rinehart is so rich is from her hard work and smart decisions. Another large part of why she is the worlds richest woman is because she was born one of the worlds luckiest babies as daughter to Lang Hancock. But no doubt part of her wealth was accumulated by being smart and hard working and there is no doubt that there is the potential for her to be a force for good in Australia and the rest of the world. I accept the fact that it is not possible for everybody to be equal if we live in a free world where people are free to make good and bad decisions.

But for the love of God Gina try to see the other side of the coin. You have the right to defend your enormous wealth but others have the right to vote for "socialist" policies as you call them, to try and even the playing field. Try a little bit harder to not hate people who want to take some of your money off you. Of course they want some of your money! The only way for them to get more opportunities in life is to deprive you of some. 

Maybe what I am saying is "hate the game not the player baby".
