2. Really?

 

The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation is trying to solve the worlds real problems, and you berate the guy because he won't donate to a SuperPAC for your guy? He's helping BILLIONS of people with that money.

Get some perspective.

3. Like the way they're trying to solve the problems in education?

 

Sorry, but the Gates aren't the beneficial, benign philanthropers you think they are. They have an agenda and are actively pursuing it. One of their big pushes is the destruction of the American public education system as we know it.

I don't care whether Buffet donates to a super PAC or not, but he certainly could have found much more worthy organizations to donate to than the Gates foundation.

4. OH PLEASE it's a tax write off for him he gets most of that money back

 

Nothing wrong with him donating I'm just saying our Millionaires and Billionaires have been acting like cowards on this SuperPac issue they rather take the high road.Well taking the high road gets you no where but a lost look what happened to Fingold in Wisconsin trying to take the high road by not taking certain money

You "get it back"?

You need some perspective, friend.
