He'd be donating more than that every year simply for tax purposes, and you know that. That'd be like me getting paid $1000 to do a job, and instead giving the money to charity. It's insignificant as a wage, since the benefits out-weigh them.

Yes, money is a standard for success in the business world, and since when is starting out with $400 million in 1971 and not being a great deal wealthier almost 50 years later, the sign of a good businessman?
You don't need to leap to his defense on this. He's proven that he's a poor businessman, something he takes pride in being known for. Try comparing him to other billionaires and you'll discover that he's pretty shitty.
