This website will donate corporate proceeds to starving people in third world countries. They do this in exchange for your brief viewing of their sponsors' ads. Starvation kills 24,000 people daily. Please take a moment of your time to check it out. Thanks.

FWIW- This site IS legit, I researched it about four months ago, and have made it my 1st stop whenever I log on, both at work & at home. You can check it out also on the Net Hoax columns (It's NOT a hoax) of any of the virus-buster's web pages.

Yeah, right. Feed a starving wog so it can grow up to breed six more starving wogs. Culture has consequences.

A has got a very valid point however.

"A" only has a valid point if you're *sure* that all of the "wog"'s descendents will be useless eaters. If OTOH one of becomes a useful member in society, their income could very well support far more people than they foods they were given cost us. (well, not you obviously)

Frank , that may well be true, but in general , in 3rd world nations , those 6 offspring will work but still not be able to provide enough income/food to support even their own family.

A- On some level I can see what you're saying. But I seem to have a hard time with the reality of people, men, women, and children, so weak with hunger they cannot stand. Their bellies swollen and their eyes an abyss. And all I have to do is push a button?

Gia -- I also said "Culture has consequences". Why is much of South and Central America a cesspool while North America (north of the Rio Grande) is relatively prosperous? South America and North America both started out with more or less equivalence in richness of resources.

Culture includes politics and religions. In those areas, South America sucks relative to North America.

Why was white south Africa and Rhodesia prosperous and black Africa a cesspool? And why now is south Africa going down the tubes? CULTURE!

Why was Lebanon prosperous (before the f*ing religious fantatics tore it apart) and Egypt is a cesspool? CULTURE!

F* the wogs -- let em starve!

Walter -- I don't need your condescending supercilious smug pity -- save it for the starving wogs.

<<<<< sheepishly looking around and humbly asks "What is a wog?"

-- consumer (shh@aol.com), January 19, 2000.

"Wog" is a derogatory Brit term from the days of colonialism, referring to the natives.
