The Thread is NOT about Whitney Houston.
If this is what you interpreted from the photograph presented in the opening post, it is incorrect.
I started the thread to open people's eyes about misplaced emotions. people weep for a woman who made over 200 Millions in her career. that is
200,000,000.00 say you take 50k for living expenses and feed people with the rest, how many could be helped?
That is just one person. how many other multimillionairs and billionairs are there in america? 2% of the population? the states has 313,008,000
people (2011), that is 6,260,160 people who have say, 10,000,000.00 (average for the heck of it)..
do the math people, that would mean $ 62,601,600,000,000.00
AND PEOPLE ARE FRAGGEN DYING AND STARVING ??? W T F ??? and millions weep for the rich?
Why don't you push yourself 80 hours a week over decades to develop a career that will lead you to becoming a millionaire so you can live on 50k and
feed some villages with the rest?
It is easy to sit back and say " I don't make much so I give little, but I really FEEL for them"
Why don't you devote your life and go over and live with them to help build a better life for them?
It is easy to sit back in the American lifestyle and say "boy I really FEEL for them, but they are on the other side of the planet"
As for me I know where I stand on all this with little hypocrisy, unlike what seems to be oozing out of so many of these other posts, and that stance
is I really don't care about the masses starving in the world. This is coming from a guy who has spent much of his military career helping these
masses, but the truth of the matter is something that everyone seems to avoid.
That truth is we are 7 billion... SEVEN BILLION and we are eating the oceans to extinction, we are killing life on earth at a rate that many common
animals we see today will not be here in a few 100 years. 100s (1000s) of species are gone in the last 500 years because of us and no one misses
This is all happening because we breed like rabbit, worst than rabbits, with no care to how those kids or even ourselves will survive. 7 billion 10
billion 20 billion it will go on and no one addresses or cares about the REAL reason why you all have those pictures of starving children....
"We can't limit people from popping out 20 babies that is so inhumane" even when 19 of them starve to death before the age of 2. So the bottom line
is people breed and let their children starve AND never slow down or stop the process...
So why should I care about the end results when nothing is ever done to prevent it all from happening in the first place?
