You people make me sick. The white man has been getting over in this country since the very beginning, from the days of fuc*ing the natives, and now that Oprah, who is by these standards one of the poorest, gets hers you want to call her a bigot or some derogatory name? Jealous crackers.

yeah, she really needs to spread her wealth-- to the bums sitting home all day watching her daytime shows

Why should I care?  I've got my own issues to deal with, and I'm not going to sit there wondering what some rich, over-rated blowhard is doing with his or her money.  You call this "news"?  You should be busted for false advertising!

Well to me she did earn it but when do you draw the line. 2.7 billion dollars wow a lot of people could be helped out there with some of that and it wouldn't hurt her pocket a bit. one thing is certain she is no angel just like the other billionaires cause do you really need that much money.

Ms Winfrey has never done anything that didn't get her attention, accolades, noticed or richer in her life. She is no ANGEL !

Well Alberto, did you ever stop to think that it's THEIR money to spend as they wish or were you trying too hard to be philosophical? With all of these transactions, all of the other people involved  make money, real estate agents, title personal, and the people that analyze what the property's worth. Although most or all of these transactions are cash sales you can bet that the property's value is being analyzed. Take #8 from the list, the purchase of the Broken O ranch, did you ever stop to think of the people involved to analyze what the value of 124,000 acres is worth? what equipment is involved? what is the livestock vale, the water rights, the crop production, the raw land, the infrastructure, the natural resources, the improvements etc. For most of the people that have posted it's just a bunch of negative comments, perhaps because they are unhappy with their own situation and want to blame someone else. I wonder, did you start out in your adult life with such low expectations? or at some point did you strive to excel and think you too could have a nice house, whatever that definition might be to you? and than thought it would be too much work so you just gave up and now bash anyone with some measure of success and somehow think that you are entitled to what they have? and that somehow they are in the wrong?

What's wrong with that picture. Little children in other parts of the world dying from disease and starvation and this fat cow buying obscenely expensive homes that she doesn't even bother to live in.  Oh yeah, but she is one of the good rich people because she is a big Obama supporter.  What's funny is that after he got elected, he stopped taking her calls and she was essentially blocked from the Whitehouse by Valerie Jarrett, Obama's commie comrade and chief gatekeeper.  Scumbags all.

god has certainly blessed oprah with intelligence, grace and a beautiful soul. she has taken her blessings and has continually given back to mankind. in my opinion, she is an angel on earth and has not wasted any of her many talents, im sure god will continue to bless this precious woman.
If you are a single rich person,there's no need to buy such big homes.the biggest the home is the loneliest you may feel,but rich people like to flash their wealth nonetheless by buying expensive things.

To Jackie c246


What exactly is "this type of excess" the article is not about the corporate tax structure it's about successful people buying and selling real estate

If you are so unhappy with the Oprah's and the professional athletes for making so much money- don't watch their shows. Refuse to watch professional sports on t.v. then they won't be in demand.


Feb 21, 2013 4:32PM
The only way to stop this type of excess is to change the tax laws to not give allowances for large business losses against income.  It doesn't matter to large corporations to lose money in one area because it will cut down their taxes so that they don't show much of an income therefore sometimes paying no or minimal income taxes.

What is a fair share?  As a high school teacher I can attest to the fact that some people work harder than others.  Why should I pay nore taxes because I worked harder?  I see it everyday, there are kids who work hard and kids who do nothing.The rich are paying their fair share in this country. 

Feb 21, 2013 4:08PM

 All I hear from the democrats is that the "rich should pay their fare share" when will the rest of the country have to start paying their fare share? Have you ever stopped to think that the more money you EARN the less dependent you are on someone else,  you can pay your own way, pay for your own home, education, food, health care etc. No one has ever given me anything I started working when I was in 6th grade, saved money for a car than started saving for a house and retirement when I was 17 or 18. I bought my first house when I was 21, after 13 years

 in the same house we decided to get out of California I moved to a different state after selling our house and 2 businesses that I owned. That was 6 years ago, I completely changed professions have built a new business and for the past three years I have made over 100k a year... WORKING  you have to work for it. The people on the list have EARNED what they spend and can spend it however they want.

aafter checking out 13 million/billion priced homes.  I was struck by how many of the owners/buyers of these houses were members of the financial institutions.  No wonder the middle class is broke.  Let us all remember the one institution the majority of this countrys institutions is The World Bank.  Evidently this bank has not too good a job or perhaps it was too good a job.

I don't care HOW rich I was: I would never indulge in such shameless excess.
Why does anyone need a house that big?

Feb 21, 2013 3:29PM
As soon as someone has some measure of success they are vilified for it. The people on this list are successful and can do what they want with the money THEY EARNED.
