Forty of America's billionaires and their families pledged Wednesday to give more than half of their fortune to charity in a drive organized by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.


This should turn out to be interesting for many reasons. I don't know about you all but to me this just screams to be watched really good.

When you have Americans out of work and living in tent cities you have to wonder weather these people really deserve the Billions they own. The money has to come from somewhere. Come from the work of others. These people should not be trying to avoid TAX with this gesture. Tax is what pays for the schools, roads and other services which these guys have undoubtably taken advantage of in their lives. I find the whole thing pretty sick to be honest.

Billionaires choosing their own pet projects while finding tax loops at the same time. 40 of them giving billions away, sure they could help bail out the Economy instead.

Maybe they can't fit it all in the Underground Bunker!

Are they headed to the bunker?

So which NWO schills have "charities" and "foundations" setup?

I know the Rothschilds have some crap they do.

Let me guess, the charities and foundations are are their own?
It's a tax shelter option. Not philanthropy, in most cases.
However, still worthy if it has some benefit to others.

money you keep. ^Y^

If a billionaire gives away half of his money how can he possibly survive with 500 million dollars?

Who else is giving up half of their wealth? Compare these people with the known list of globalists, and figure out who is buying into a future of slavery. Half of your wealth, for a lifetime of servants can be an appealing proposition for anyone. There is little hope in this being an extension of the hand to unfortunate people. Call me cynical, fine. This does not sit right. Something is off. Can we please agree.

If we truly know the worth of $$$ then we know we are either back to square one, or have just bought off the debt of 40 other people.

Peace to you...

Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary.
