She stated the obvious and is being viciously demonized for it. Great example of the "mobbing" FringeElements talked about in his documentary, where people twist everything someone says into something evil.
Meanwhile, she's being attacked for having inherited money, the fact of the matter is if she wasn't a good steward of that money, it'd all be gone.
Instead, according to Wikipedia, she was worth $1.8 billion in 2006, now she's worth $29.17 billion just 6 years later, despite the financial crisis. Compare that to any government the world over and then tell me how important it is to have "inherited" your wealth, the U.S. government "inherits" (see: steals) trillions of dollars a year, yet it all gets burned on socialism and killing people. Their investments are all Solyndra's.
To make money you have to produce value for consumers and get them to give you their money voluntarily, that's how markets work. Of course, all these parasites attacking her make their living robbing workers through taxation and live parasitically off the general populace they rule over, they're the out of touch ones who ought to be ashamed of themselves, though they tend to be sociopaths devoid of human emotion, so it's understandable they don't give a damn. - Chris, InfoLib
UPDATE: "When her father died in 1992, he left the mining mogul $75 million and, yes, she multiplied that sum by 386 over the past 20 years, according to AOL Daily Finance."SYDNEY — The world's richest woman, Australian mining tycoon Gina Rinehart, urged those "jealous" of the wealthy to "spend less time drinking" in a piece the government described as "insulting" on Thursday.
[...]Rinehart blamed what she described as "socialist", anti-business policies for the plight of Australia's poor, urging the government to lower the minimum wage, as well as taxes, unless it wanted to end up like Greece.
"The terrible millionaires and billionaires can often invest in other countries... maybe their teenagers don't get the cars they wanted, or a better beach house or or maybe the holiday to Europe is cut short, but otherwise life goes on," she wrote.
"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."
[...]"These sorts of comments are an insult to the millions of Australian workers who go to work and slog it out to feed the kids and pay the bills," Swan said, adding that Rinehart clearly regarded Australians as "lazy workers who drink and socialise too much".
