Well said, they are obviously very smart guys however evil they may be. I'm saying people like that could kick down a billion or two and not even miss it. A couple drs climbing Kilimanjaro probably isn't going to change much. Their time would have probably been better spent in the lab.

I hate rich greedy people, if they all gave a nice chunk of their money this world would be a better place

Honestly - I hate the attitude that "greedy" rich people don't have the right to spend their money the way they see fit or that we are better off if we try to separate them from their fortunes.

Actually that is a perfectly reliable source. I could provide 20 or 30 other links but perhaps you could use Google instead you lazy bastard.

Oh and the Clinton Foundations have already raised over $2 Billion to buy the next election so let's not pretend it's just one side.

There is certainly an awful lot of money at work.

Yeah, it's an easy one, but I still despise it. I just hope it helps out. You had problems with avastin voxx? what were your side effects? I think last time I was doing it I just had a few bloody noses.

Head ache for one but that was doable. But it made me bleed badly - especially hemorrhoids so if you don't already have that problem then you probably don't need to worry about it.

I may get a bit of a headache as well but not sure if that's the cause. Hopefully I'm done with bleeding out my ass.
