Good for them. They put together something people love to use and they are reaping the rewards. Free enterprise at it's best.

I agree with Doug. Just because none of us own a jet, or even a share in one doesn't mean nobody else shouldn't have one either. Or 2.5 jets each.

How cool is that, sometimes hard work pays off.

I have a business, and 19 motorcycles. I am guessing some subset of the 99% will think I am a bad guy.

Nevermind the fact that I have worked years putting the collection together, only one bike purchased new, and a few of them added at the cost of the loss of my father.

Yup, I am one over-consuming and greedy sole proprietorship!

Getting a bit sick of the class warfare that is being waged these days. Were the jets purchased with drug money or other ill-gotten gains? Would seizure of this ostentatious display of aircraft make any difference whatsoever in the lives of an Occupy Wall Streeter's life? Add one red cent to his adjusted gross income for 2011?

More power to 'em!

Why work hard, if you cannot enjoy the fruits of your labor? Those who covet someone elses stuff without the work, are notworth wasting my time on.I respect those who work their butts off, and don't have a lot to show for it, just as much as those who are very suscessful. But, I have zero respect for those who are able, but too lazy, and demands that someone else supply them with their needs.

Some really good responses here. I've been hearing so much of the 99%er stuff lately, I'm starting to wonder.

I would like to be one of those people and don't know anyone that wouldn't want to be able to own 2.7 jets. More power to them. Look at the jobs they created just by buying those planes.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
