I wholeheartedly agree that most of us are rich by the rest of the world's standards. When I look at how I can cut costs in my own life to adjust to the economy or my debt, I never even think about removing the small amount I give to help others that are so less fortunate. The amount I give so that others can have the basic necessities of food and education mean way more to them than a few extra lunches out or a pedicure to me. It's so important to remember where we truly are in the big picture.

Sad times...especially considering how much money was probably spent last Friday.

Yes... so sad that all those people went out to stores this last weekend and purchased products... so those stores would need to hire people... so those people would have jobs... and not need assistance...


I am not saying that buying stuff is bad. If people don't buy then who is going to sell. However, it would be reasonable to estimate that a significant portion of those purchases will become junk which means wasted resources. Also if you are considering that these "temporary" jobs are a goods means of assistance then I think you forgot to consider the tax burden(FICA, etc.) on the workers. At least charitable donations are tax deductible.
