My first statement in that comment was a question.
I don't know what the actual need is, and I agree with you that there's probably some degree of line loss and a greater degree of abuse.
But even if we assume that the need is only $300 billion rather than $1.1 trillion we're still left with a situation where $30 billion only gets us through a couple of months.
Then we have to make assumptions about whether or not private charity and philanthropy would step in and fill the need.
If it does, great.
If it doesn't we've got people dying of starvation on the side of the road in the tens of millions.
I don't know if that's a bet we could or should take.
No, doesn't take away from it at all.But let me ask you. Does all that BS, because that is all it really is regarding government welfare, take away from the fact that this guy was doing a good deed and people started to trash him for doing so? Come on.
Good on him.
He's a good Christian guy and is to be admired for what he's done.
It's a huge sum of money to have in a personal investment portfolio.And $30 billion isn't useless. It is a huge sum of money.
It's a pittance on the global, or even national, economy.
