A case study in hypocrisy

Human Rights crusader Heather Mills blames the planet's woes on snobbish and selfish capitalists. Not everyone possesses the moral authority to be rich. Celebrities know best:

Mills McCartney said she was reluctantly obliged to befriend the world's wealthy because that was the only way to maximize her power as an agent for change.

"Sadly, you have to mix at a certain level of people to raise the level of funds you need to bring about the greater good," she said. "Because people are very snobby. These people who have lots of money, they're either snobby or they're stingy. If you have lots of money, you have to be stingy — because why would you want that amount of money?"
Perhaps Heather can provide the answer to that question:
Paul McCartney's personal wealth is estimated at $1.6 billion. British press reports have speculated that McCartney has offered his wife around $50 million, while she is seeking at least double that amount.
All you need is love.

With $100 million, she can buy herself a diamond-encrusted artificial leg to prop her snobby ass up.

She could give it all to the poor and get a job.

Why would she want 100 million? Like she says it can't buy her happiness she should give it to me.

We could just split the $50M, Dinosaur. ;)

They say that money doesn't buy happiness...but I am quite sure it is the kind of misery I could live with.

Holy fucking glowtardiness. It is freezing tonight. I got the heat jacked up. I had to go out, and being a good stupid citizen of London, I didn't idle, to warm the old beast. I just jumped in for a 15 minute trip, and my ass is still frozen.

I was thinking, why do they always hold those glowtard warming thingmajig conferences in warm climates. The bastards should be made to hold one in Winnipeg in January. If their brains cooled down, perhaps they could see some reality in the situation.
