Why there is so much disparity among haves and haves not.

    Why someone is destined to sleep empty stomach whereas someone has stacked millions in banks and no one to eat. Where this disparity will leads us. Are we as a human being not fellow brother to each other and should care for a person who is shivering in the chilly wind without proper cloths. Should we not help to manage a shelter for the homeless. Are we or our children for whom we are stacking will carry this burden of money to the heaven or we are going to carry our good deeds their. Will we not be more happy helping the needy and have a great self satisfaction of doing something good and have a meaning of our life.

      My heart is totally bleeding, man.

      But unless you want to blame government, or the federal reserve, you're just wasting time.

      It is necessary for plenty to go without to enable others to have too much.

        Who are you to say who has too much?

          You can only eat so many meat pies in a day and the quantity has little to do with how rich you are.

            But you can certainly provide meat pies for those who have none, and they do. Who are you to say who has too much? Don't bother answering, you will just offer up more socialist drivel.

            Apparently John, there are people who have the right to tell you what you can and can't say. So do as you're told. lol

              You'll notice that he misses the point completely though.

                I wonder John, how many meat pies have you provided for the have-nots? Its very easy to research the generosity of the haves, but alas, your generosity is nowhere to be found. I'm sure you will have something different to say but will be unable to offer proof of any sort.

                  In my younger days I did a soup run, generic term, we supplied food and clothing.
                  The rich were notable by their absence from our donors.

                  Easy to prove, just go out and do the same thing.

    It is not just the government to blame. We call ourselves civilized society but are these signs of civilization to turn a blind's eye upon the problems of our fellow. How come we can have a peaceful sleep when someone is empty stomach shivering in the cold without a shelter.  If the government does not pay attention to these problems, why cannot we demand from it instead of demanding self-centric things like tax exemptions, nice infrastructures, better securities and all from the government?

      How much money have you donated?

        What a clever answer?! You can't be serious, what does that mean maybe he has donated millions maybe not a more accurate question would be what percentage of your whealth have you donated, I donate more proportionately than Bill Gates but can't match his numbers :p.
        Do you not understand the difference between donating money and trying to create a world where that high handed bread to the masses charity isn't necessary? and Yes I do donate lots and yes I am happy for my taxes to be raised if that raise will go to helping others less fortunate.

          I just fall for your answer. We really need thinkers like you. The positive turn you have given is the great gesture our society is looking today and is longing for making a change. Even if we have a few handful of people like you, there is hope that our government, our society, and our neighborhood will listen and someday  we will be able to make this world more humanly and more proactive towards the problems which needed much attention than a pub or recreational center.  I am looking for ways and suggestions through which we can pave a way to have such a hunger free world; a world where we will easily share our plate with a hungry child.
