  •  Ah, yes, "the poor" (6+ / 0-)

    Carter's service to his country, to the poor, and to the cause of human rights since departing the White House cannot be gainsaid. He has been rightly applauded for it.

    The poor -- that portion of humanity which exists to make charitable donors "look good."  Our governments could eliminate world poverty in, maybe, a couple of years with a real, concentrated effort, but then our philanthropic celebrities would no longer get credit for "service to the poor."
