Yes, but every change starts whith attitude....
Whose attitude are they trying to change . . . should we feel sorry for these
obscenely wealthy individuals . . . so they can feel better about themselves ?
Didn't someone just pay $2.6 million dollars to have lunch with WB ?
TO HAVE FREAKING LUNCH WITH HIM ? Just one damn lunch ! I wonder
how many starving people could've been helped with that very same
$2.6 million dollars ?
It's a joke. A big, rich person's joke . . . on us.
Mark 12:41-44 (King James Version)
41And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
42And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
43And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
44For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
Luke 21:1-4 (King James Version)
1And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
2And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
3And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:
4For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

I think that giving to charities is lazy on their part.
just throw money at something you dont quite know how it helps, or what it is spent on.
thats why a few rich guys make their own progrmas, for helping those in need because they have better money management skills.
A lot of charities seem to ignore the root of the problems they are trying to help anyways, often profiting from an endless problem.

I am broke,
Seems like a wonderful gesture, then when you try and get some, good luck, I have given to charity in small amounts, and I have asked for help from charities,
Seems there are never funds available, I wonder who gets on the "you can have some" list.
I am more then a little bitter over a couple of my experiences with charitable organizations,
How about Job development, there are no jobs around here that you can raise a family on, let's see, doctors, lawyers, insurance companies, government, fast food,
we need blue collar jobs.

Sorry, but whenever I hear of the super-rich setting up "Charitable Foundations" it sends a shudder down my spine. These Foundations are just tax-efficient, unaccountable legal loopholes whereby the rich can indulge their most repugnant NWO fantasies in total secrecy.
