Occasionally, I write about the books I’ve written. I think this is okay especially considering that one relates to today’s subject, hangers on. The book is “The Prepper.” It is about a young man who spends years preparing for the possible doomsday. However, he gets hit right between his eyes by the present. Throughout the story he finds himself wishing he had prepared for this or that, for instance, he wished he had taken a class on criminology. He would have found the course very handy along for a few other things he did NOT prepare for.
At any rate, (slight spoiler alert) he comes upon a large sum of money and he finds that it brings on a number of folks, people who claimed to be friends, relatives and folks really good at managing large sums of money. Again, it is what I call hangers on. They are people without scruples who enjoy living off other peoples money.
These folks fall into three categories: friends and relatives, professionals such as money managers lawyers and pro moochers. These moochers know about “investments” and get rich ideas. Some have really nice inventions that will save the world…if they can just get some financial backing. Then, of course, there are those who know about these very real community needs.
Understand, I do understand that there are community needs. It just is that most of these hangers on make fortunes representing the needy and pocketing most of the donations.
Then too, the prepper had a problem with gold-diggers, women looking for rich husbands.
I find it absolutely amazing how people can instantly find reasons they need to hang on to people who acquire grate wealth, especially those who gain the wealth suddenly and in their youth.
So what is the purpose of the post? Let’s have a quick look at Britney Spears, a very wealthy woman who had squired many hangers on, of all things, including her father. If it weren’t for her millions, not one of them would have any interest in her.
Let’s get this straight. I am not one of her fans and I am sure she could have lived a far better life. However, I find it despicable the way that the hangers on cling to her. All of the lawyers, both hers and her fathers ought to be disbarred. None of them have her interest in mind and I understand that should be their primary concern, not their own treasure chest. Moreover, why in the world does it take three. Why should she pay for her father’s three lawyers.
Most of all, my biggest question is just what in the world was the court system thinking of to allow this mess.
Don’t get me wrong. I think our court system is the best in the world. However, I have taken note that it does get warped a little when money is involved. Just who was the judge who allowed this. I wonder just how his bank account affected by it.
Okay. I have no proof. Yet it happened right in front of the eyes of the American people. This is a disgrace to the justice system and it is a disgrace to all those who are hangers on. Perhaps, to a lesser degree, it is also a disgrace to the American people who permitted it.
As a side note: “The Prepper” is my best selling book. Of all I know who have read most of my books, they all say it is their favorite. You might want to preview the book. You might want to find out why it is my best selling.
Also, this just might explain why people consider lawyers a necessary evil. Isn’t it nice to know that most of those we vote into office are lawyers.
