    Re: How generous are you? (Part I)

    I Googled the whole survey, and I have to say the options are poorly worded. Most of them aren't reasons why I would or would do or how I feel about any of the questions.

    The question that you posted for this thread is a fine example. I know nothing about the person I'm asked to give money to. I'm not about to give a dime to any wealth person, nore a drug addict or pedophile, etc, and I'm quite generous with my money in real life. It's a very poor measure of anything.

    Money isn't free, it had to come from somewhere. Since I have no idea where the money came from I want no part of it.

    But that response may be the result of a poorly explained experiment.

    Too funny! I hadn't read the other posts before I responded.

    OK. OK. Where's part II? Just reminded me my brother-in-law named his dog par two because he wasn't big enough to be a par three. Just a little funny.

    I'm sorry. You left me a way around. I keep it all. When we are done I would speak to the person at the table that didn't have money given to him; however, he lost the 'flip of the coin' but essentially he is no different than anyone else, i.e. his sitting at the table meant nothing to the people giving the money away. However, I may feel he is due something. My POV is a bit unusual. One reason is that we we have more than enough and are managing our money to insure that we'er going to have enough to support others, e.g. our first grandchild born 12/31/2011.

    Don't know about all this altruistic nonsense... if someone voted to give some (< 50%) to the other person it just shows they aren't a selfish, self centered ****. If they chose to give 50% or > away, it means they genuinely see themselves reflected as and on the same level as the unknown other person. If they gave 100% away, they're Harri Krishna's or Tibetan Monks who have a disdain for materialistic items and have better things to do than count their sheckles.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
