Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 22, 2019

I'm no statistics whiz, but it seems to me that a Chinese billionaire dies every 40 days. China Daily reported Friday that unnatural deaths have taken the lives of 72 mainland billionaires over the past eight years. (Do the math.) Which means that if you're one of China's 115 current billionaires, as listed on the 2011 Forbes Billionaires List, you should be more than a little nervous. Mortality rate notwithstanding, what's more disturbing is how these mega wealthy souls met their demise. According to China Daily, 15 were murdered, 17 committed suicide, seven died from accidents and 19 died from illness. Oh, yes, and 14 were executed. (Welcome to China.)

The trash? I assume you are calling them "trash" because they amassed all that money, decided to keep what they earned without giving it away to average citizens?

NOTE: I would be remiss if I didn't remind Chinese billionaires (you know who you are) that China carries out the death penalty more than the rest of the world combined, according to Amnesty International, so by being corrupt in any way, shape or form is simply tempting fate. Remember, the big corruption no-nos are (and you should know these by heart): graft, bribery, embezzlement, backdoor deals, nepotism, patronage, and statistical falsification; they all lead to lethal injection. Have a nice day.
