You don't need to be rich to donate 'everything'. If you have $1 you are free to donate that

300 million in the US

if $3 were donated from every person (yes, parents would have to donate for their kids) it would be the same as 1 fat cat donating $1 BILLION.

Yes, I feel compassion for the world's poor. Yes I agree that many charities do not distribute donations effectively. But I will never place a blanket of blame on every wealthy person.

An average earner in the US is comparable to the poorest as the weathly are comparable to the average earner. YOU are to the poor as the rich are to you.

That is like you spitting on the sidewalk, then saying 'there shold be a law to stop spitting in public.

If anyone wants to help they are free to do so

You totally missed the parts about the charities who rip off too much of the donations, didn't you? They tell us how the people "walk miles to get water", but they never use the donations to dig a water well in the village, do they?

No. I did not miis it, in fact I acknowledged that problem in my post in bold above.

I was answering the posters that seemed to be blaming wealthy people for not doing more. Did you happen to miss that part? see lines in italics

I realize the thread is not about wealthy being lax in charitable giving. But did the 2 posters I replied to understand that part too?

Yes, the hrea is about charities ripping off donations. Many other posters have offered ideas to eliminate or lessen the root problem, poverty. If there were no poverty to exploit no charity (for the hungry) could rip off anybody.

My post also addresses more the root problem. Admonish the other off topic as well as mine.

Did you see my post about slowing human procreation rates? No, I have no ideas HOW to do this but I am pointing out some of the CAUSE and possible mitigating directions our effort might take.

And that is the main reason I get so pissed off when I see pointless wars and corrupt governments pissing away money like it's nothing. 5 trillion dollars could have fed and housed them all but we have people running this world who only see themselves and only care about how full their pockets are.

You guys have it all wrong, We dont have to teach them anything...

It is the Elites involvement in this continent that bring it to what you see today.

I wonder why it is alot of you in this thread and on this site say "we should teach them how to fish or teach them how to grow food". The Elite have won into maeing you think this continent and its race of people are incompetent, That is way far from the truth

Before the european colonization of africa, its people were fine ad well established, It is gred of outsiders that m,ade the continen what it is today...

Check my thread the first two videos will answer your questions and blow your mind....

Thread: Uncovered Truth-The ELITES Conquest to Oppress Control a nd Strip the African Continent......
