(A) That Americans will set aside issues of color, nationality, religion, and political beliefs and truly care as much about the staggering number of Tsunami-catastrophe victims as they do about the victims of 9/11. And, in light of this caring, that the US's 277 billionaires will leap into the breach left by President Bush's inadequate offering of $35 million dollars of aid (which was a full $33 million short of the $68 million offered by the considerably poorer nation of Spain). (1) That each of the said billionaires will give 10% of their total assets to relief and reconstruction efforts in India, Southeast Asia and East Africa.
Since this still would leave about ½ of US billionaires with a generous $900,000,000 each in assets (surely enough for even the most rapacious of individuals) it seems an eminently reasonable and fair proposition. Given that the remaining ½ of US billionaires are not billionaires, but, in fact, multi-billionaires, with assets ranging from 5 billion, 8 billion, 11 billion and up to 48 billion dollars, a 20% gift of each one's total assets would also be nice. (Credit is due to Bill Gates for having already coughed up $3 million for this effort, though arguably it's a modest donation for someone worth $48 billion.)

It's always about money with these people. They're obsessed with money. Don't get me wrong, money's great, but these people think about it 24/7. Usually other people's.
It's always all about the money with the Left, isn't it?
I can't read that kind of garbage anymore.
OK, I didn't click on the link you provided to read the rest, but I'm betting the inauguration and the money spent is also mentioned, you know, "How can you throw so much money into crowning King George when hundreds of thousands have died..."
Just wrote a nice email to the author..What crap..All about the government playing mommie and daddy to a lazy , good for nothing child..

No, she actually didn't go there, I was amazed! Every other communi, er, progressive commentator has mentioned that item, but she was so worked up about poor Lenny Peltier and all the mistreated prisoners that she must've forgot to read that part of her talking points memo.
They keep complaining about how little we're giving for tsunami aid. Okay...let's start cutting lib programs and donate that, with the NEA at the top of the list. I dare the lib elitists to say how their precious arts are more important than food and water for the tsunami victims.
Hardly worth the read, but thanks for the link anyhow. Mina's a good example of what happens when political activists think that they're economics experts. The economy of the Soviet Union is a perfect example of their work.
The writer is an idiot.
The number one wish of small children is for World Peace. It's amazing how adults become so layered in negative conditioning that they become cynical and jaded about the prospects of creating a better world.
I don't want to talk about the US giving money UNTIL Koffi Annan's son give a BIILLON or so.
Then we'll talk
Mina Hamilton would be a whiz with Five Year Plans. Everything would be in a shambles within five months...
I'll bet a lot of good stuff was smoked while this crap was thought up.
No, with respect, it is not. The number one wish of small children is for something good to eat, hugs from Mommy and Daddy, and limitless entertainment. That is why small children do not run the world, and properly so.
She decries the DoD, but I'll wager that she has no problems with any form of abortion and that she thinks that human euthanasia is "compassionate."
