    of my comment; I know you're smarter than to have just missed this:

    Preferentially all the nations could spend much mo
    which implies that we should ALL GIVE MORE MONEY THAN JUST THE 30 BILLION that the diarist discusses.

    We can give a man a fish AND teach him how to fish.

    I see what you did there.

      pissed about getting called out doesn't change it.

      •  C'mon, you intentionally misrepresent (0+ / 0-)

        content on here CONSTANTLY, just in order to drop piles and be mad. Really silly to accuse me of 'getting pissed'...your 'shit' is just getting really old.

        I see what you did there.

      •  Strange as it may seem, "we" are not monolithic (2+ / 0-)

        Even if by "we" you mean only the U.S. government, not its people -- and certainly not its client corporations -- the government is not a monolithic entity, nor is it a single-tasker.

        It's one thing to get the U.S. government focused on helping starving people. It's a completely different thing to get the government and its client corporations to stop abusing the resources in the rest of the world (let alone within our own borders.) But in fact, the latter really isn't even a thing. It's an idea. Making that idea real requires a whole host of other things, some of which strike at the very core of how capitalism works.

        It's great to try to change the system, but it's going to take a very long time before it succeeds, if it ever does. In the meantime, there are a billion people starving, and maybe we can change that without killing the beast first. So whatch'a gonna do?

        Let us all have the strength to see the humanity in our enemies, and the courage to let them see the humanity in ourselves.

    •  Splitting the cost (2+ / 0-)

      There are plenty of nations around the world that could pay this $30 Billion on its own, but your point is well taken. Splitting the cost makes good sense.

      I'd just love to see America leading this charge.
