You originally (and boldly) claimed that the people of Hong Kong gave far more than Americans. This fact refuted, you're moving the goal posts and quibbling over a few percentage points of how many gave? Seriously?

Do you realize this makes the Americans that do give even more generous even if there are fewer of them?

I think it's great that the people of Hong Kong give generously and that the people of America give generously too. I also think it would be great if people gave more. This needn't be a contest.

The state is nothing more than a criminal gang writ large.

Agreed. And I'm not moving the goalposts. I've already admitted I was wrong about American giving.

I personally donated money for all these, though not to Somalia, I admit.

What ever happened to Sally Struthers, anyway?

Glad to hear that.Sally Struthers I believe died.Not sure though.
