It’s all over the news recently, Bill Gates and 40 billionaires will give away half of their wealth, to charity.
I have a better idea. How about instead of giving away fish, you teach people to fish. Small business and the middle class are in trouble. If you want to help, how about some low cost business loans or grants that will help people open their own shops and then hire other people to work there and then the money kinda stays in the community instead of being soaked up by the market which sits predominantly off-shore and thumbs their noses at us while we work our butts off and pay taxes while they don’t. Whew, that’s a helluva run on sentence, glad to get it off my chest. Oh, and keep the net neutral, while you’re at it. I wouldn’t stand for people telling me which roads I can drive on, so I have no interest in letting it slide on the “information superhighway”.
You can start by sending me a check for $100K to open a coffee/geek/hosting biz. Or, you can go ahead and put that on your charge card by hitting “Custom Deal” over here, just make the quantity 100,000.
