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...
Do what you have to, make your billions and give it away.There are many who do help humanity.
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.
He made and gave away millions, hats of to him simple, why try and put him down?
How many millions have you made and given to charity?
As usual you missed the point. I swear, you are useless to talk to. I guess I shouldn't be surprised with you.
How much have you donated to charity?
You say this guy had donated just few millions, how much have you?
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 ?

Should billionaires exist?In these days of financial turmoil, the ultra-rich have been put under the spotlight. Do a small minority of people just have too much money...much more than one human could ever need or spend?

Why don't Hollywood liberals and liberal billionaires give their fortunes to the government ?With all the talk about paying your fair share, you'd think that the countries wealthiest and most influential liberals would at least give their fortunes to the government as an example since...

Both Clinton and Bush have been patiently waiting their turns to be president. The powers that be--the millionaires and billionaires--support them. So it's pretty much a done deal. So how will you vote? And why would you vote for either Jeb or Hillary for president?

Why do teenagers shut themselves away in their rooms?We've all been there, but why do we shut ourselves away as teenagers and don't communicate as well with our parents during this time?
