Bill and Melinda give to help those with little

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I am so happy to see America's richest couple give as they do.


Your thoughts,

    Kind of funny how it's on msnbc, but that's not too significant other than a metric of the fact that Gates owns a lot of stuff.

    If I were in his shoes, with a lot of money, I sometimes wonder what I'd do with it. Sometimes I think the most compassionate move is to withhold. I'm not too well versed on the African situation with sicknesses of all sorts, but I know it's not pretty.

    But perhaps a more compassionate solution in the long term (and one we can all do) is to be hard against the powers that be that insist on building subsidies around non-staple crop production in 3rd world countries.

    Bill? Just give me a check for a measly 100 grand. I'll keep my mouth shut. Thanks.
