Yes, everyone has a price. Those who say they do not, simply haven't considered what their's may be.

Frankly, i find no single worth in someone who steals money, or who abuses this thing at the expense of other people. I refuse to recognize the person's existence, and even his kindness. &@^%^$#$!


Only honorable men and women would not be corrupted and that's one good consolation against "moneypulators" :mrgreen:

When you talk of folk having a price, that does not always have to be monetary.

It may be money in practical terms, but suppose that is in fact the price of freedom, as for example the boat people who have used money to jump a refugee queue to try and get their families somewhere safe.

I deplore people smugglers, but can understand why they find easy victims.

Why is it they always say "Money is the root of evil"?

I dont agree anyways but lack of it is somehow the root of evil, I assume.

Actually the complete saying is "The love of money is the root of all evil".

And I don't think that if I loved money that would make me devilish.

I bet everyone of us, love the money he/she possesses ...

There's a Benjamin Franklin quote that I am too lazy to look up. I toss it around every now again.... Roughly:

Those who are of the belief that money does everything will often times find themselves doing everything for money.
