  •  Because she doesn't do anything about it. I (0+ / 0-)

    have known many really wealthy people and all these people I know, know what's going on and act to improve it, giving money and time to solutions.

    •  And you know for a fact she does nothing? (0+ / 0-)

      That's not been my impression. She's no Myra Kraft, that's clear. She's primarily been a housewife and been involved in programs that don't make the New York Times very often, more like Mormon programs. Is that wrong? And she is a pure product of a faith that reinforces "woman=housewife and mother first and foremost" at every possible turn. A very wealthy one.

      But to equate that with "blind" to the needs of the world is some seriously overreaching and stereotyping.

      Not everyone is Myra Kraft or those like her. Does that mean they're all blind to suffering? I think not. Many people do good works out of the public limelight. Obviously, they are dismissed and get no credit for it from some people.
