    There are 793 billionaires, 45% of them are US Citizens. How much money is enough? What prevents billionaires from giving say 50% of their profit's? Why die leaving behind truck loads of cash to well educated but certainly not people who have the heart of Christ? If you walked up to Bill Gates and said sell everything you own and give it all away, what do you think he would say? It is like the story of the rich man who gave his servants money to invest, there was three of them, 2 out of three invested all that he gave them and showed a good reutrn, the one that did not was cast out. The billionaires do give, but only what would be considered a topical solition, nothing that has really made a significant change, nows the time, give like you might not be here tomorrow, who knows maybe you won't be here...

        Yeah, there is. Here is a prime example:

        Bill Gate and His Wife, have their own foundation for cancer research. He, himself, donated $7 BILLION to the foundation. He got the tax deduction because it was a donation.

        However, the Foundation itself, used less than the 5% mandatory by U.S. regulated, to actually do research? How is that beneficial to humanity in any way? It's not. It's a gimmick, when a lot of rich people give away their wealth and is done for mostly selfish reasons and not selfless reasons. smile

      Well, a lot of millionaires give away in charity more than 50% when they die.
      so you just have to wait.
      Why are you so resentful of billionaires ? Want to be one yourself and you can't ?
