...and in the news today: The former dog house of the late Marie Antoinette sold today for-- Oh, wait. I got that wrong didn't I?

What's that ruckus outside the gate--and what are all those ragged people doing?

Dogs are more loyal friends than many people. So be it.

And then you aren't the one who earned the money, it is easy to spent it on frivolity.

their loyal because they can't take care of themselves. They are moochers that refuse to get jobs, pay taxes, or bathe regularly. I've even seen them eating cat feces. Gross! Yet expect their own special parks, free medical care, and organic fancy food and dog bakeries. Spoiled brats who refuse to learn how to read and write or make scientific discoveries. If they are so much better than humans than where is their art, music, and culture? That's because they don't have one and they smell BAD!

What a lucky pup? I could use that money to build a center for abused women and send them to school or something.

Ah. Florida.

The land of voter purges, wealthfare sponsored drug tests, Rick Scott, naked Zombie face eaters, hanging chads, Elian roadside shrines, Rush Limbaugh, Stalk Your Ground Zimmermann, BP flavored shrimp, and Conchita Posner.

Ah. Florida.

Yipes!!!!

What a legacy!

The rich have different priorities, it never occurred to her that she could ease the suffering of a lot of people with $10 million dollars. Leona Hemsley did the same thing.

I agree. I believe in taking care of our pets, but...?? My good friend will inherit my dog when I go, but everything else goes to my kids. One of my grandchildren wants my cat. It makes me feel good to know that my pets will be well cared for when I die. But leave them millions? No way.

This is how Victor Posner is remembered on his Wki page:

"The Economist said, after he died, "he was a pioneer of the hostile takeover of a public company. He was dismissive of the convention previously observed that a takeover should have the agreement of the existing board. He would spot a company whose assets he judged were undervalued, gain control and milk it. Some bits would be sold off, others would be closed. Previously unconsidered treasures, such as the employees' pension fund, would be raided and reinvested in Mr Posner's other companies."[3] Posner was a maverick player in the world of corporate finance. Many of his dealings were alleged to be illegal and he was closely watched by the Securities and Exchange Commission from the mid-1980s on."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_Posner

That is why Obama's commercials have been very critical of Bain's history in Private Equity deals and involvement in Leveraged Buyout Deals.

Mr. Posner was closely watched by the SEC but the watchbird never stopped him from doing the crimes listed by Wikipedia? The employees should have hired a good attorney! ...Oh, they were not unionized....Florida is "open shop?"

A perfect example of the disparities in this country. With humans, it's the gaping abyss between the super rich and the struggling masses - with animals, it's pets like this woman's and the millions that suffer on the streets and die in shelters. There is something to be said for altruism and philanthropism, only it would appear that the ones who have obscene amounts of wealth would rather keep it close to home.

That is how you get rich. You do not think about the plight of the less fortunate. If you give away your wealth, you will not be wealthy. That is simple economics. All that being said, giving your wealth when you die to a dog? Really, that is a bit much. At least she did provide for her housekeepers and the caretakers of the dog.

As to the son who only got a million, I don't think he will stand much of a chance. I don't know Florida's laws on wills and probate, but that will be pretty hard to break. He will have to prove that she was not of sound mind (good luck on that) or that indeed that the housekeepers drugged her or blackmailed the widow. Again good luck on that.

Many wealthy people in San Francisco support our local SPCA - which is wonderful. Our city has a no-kill policy. They rescue most animals and train those who have problems but are potentially adoptable so they can be adopted by qualified owners. They carefully screen otential owners to make sure the pet and the new owner have a good fit. No feisty young dogs with sedentary oldsters, for example. Not all wealthy people are evil. The problem is that we no longer have laws or effective safeguards and monitors to keep greed in check.

A product of Private Equity deals. Her father, Victor Posner, was one of the most infamous corporate raiders of the 1980's. He was a pioneer of the leveraged buyout, a tactic of Private Equity firms.

Yup. But keep in mind that stupid and ridiculousness is not a crime. It is her money to do with as she sees/saw fit. Is it dumb? Yes. Could she have done better? Yup. But that is the way the cookie crumbles in a capitalistic market.
