How rich: Bill Gates made his billions
while avoiding taxes - now he´s
lecturing us on how to spend ours

Daily Mail [UK], by Ian Birrell

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 4/20/2017 10:52:55 PM

Scarcely had the starting gun for Britain’s election battle been fired when technology guru Bill Gates waded in with a doom-laden warning to the Prime Minister. The American multi-billionaire, the world’s richest man, was accused of ‘lecturing’ Britain last night after telling Theresa May not to slash the country’s bloated foreign aid budget – claiming that doing so would diminish Britain’s influence in the world and mean many more lives lost in Africa. In an article in the Guardian, he wrote: ‘The big aid givers now are the US, Britain and Germany. If those three back off, a lot of

Comments:
So Gates has written his point of view on his massive aid to poor folks for the snobby Guardian??? As of this year:

No. 1, The Sun--1,666,715
No. 2, Daily Mail--1,511,357
...
No. 14, The Guardian--156,756

The G is not a fit paper in which to wrap fish ´n chips.

I have a problem with those that make their money here and spending it outside of the country. This man has no problem telling us to do the same.

Charity begins at home. As Dolly Parton said "this is my home."

We have spent 150 years here on social safety net, many billions more of foreign aid. Then, they tell us we should pay reparations. That´s our thanks.

After watching how the Carnegie, Ford and Rockefeller foundations have morphed into leftist, anti-capitalist shills, it is frightening to think how Gates´ and Buffett´s money will end up considering they´re STARTING as pinko anti-capitalist entities.

For a century or two Britain poured money and people into Africa to quell wars, build schools, houses, roads, bridges, farms, businesses and libraries.
Then they were kicked out.

Now Gates says the Brits must send money (but not people) or lives will be lost. Sorry, Bill, been there done that. And Britain’s influence in the world exists for those who can keep it.

President Trump was the ´special guest´ at the White House´s Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, greeting several dozen youngsters outside the West Wing. ´Don´t be politicians and don´t be reporters – lead a normal life,´ Trump instructed the children, who predominantly belonged to journalists covering him and members of his staff. Posing a question to the young ones, the president asked, ´How do we get your parents to like Trump better?´ Trump said with a laugh. Trump added some additional star power to a day that already included a mock briefing by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

President Trump is set to release his tax plan on Wednesday. The announcement of the administration´s principles for tax reform will begin a new debate with Congress as the president nears the end of his first 100 days in office.

They’re slated to meet the press at the same time Trump has a scheduled meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. The tax plan is hotly anticipated on Capitol

Somewhere among the 1,001 stations zapped into our tellies via cable, satellite and airwaves, there should be a channel devoted entirely to elephants. Maybe it could come free, as part of your jumbo TV package. I’d watch it — in fact, I’d never want to turn it off. Our biggest land mammals are natural stars on the small screen, as we discovered in Paul O’Grady: For The Love Of Animals — India (ITV). O’Grady met monkeys, leopards and even orphaned rhinos, but the rescued elephants at a sanctuary near the Taj Mahal stole the show. We’re used to seeing O’Grady getting weepy

The White House has lambasted opponents to its immigration policies in the strongest terms yet, saying anti-ICE lawmakers have ´the blood of dead Americans on their hands.´ In a statement released on Wednesday night, the Trump administration complained that US District Judge William Orrick´s decision to block a ban on funding for sanctuary cities was ´a gift to criminal gangs and cartels.´ It went on to invoke the death of Kathryn Steinle, the 32-year-old woman shot dead by an illegal immigrant in Orrick´s city of San Francisco in 2015. ´San Francisco, and cities like it, are putting the well-being of criminal aliens before

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued Thursday that President Trump and Republicans in Congress will have "doo-doo stuck to their shoe for a long time" if they pass the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA). The comments came a day after the AHCA received a boost in support from the House Freedom Caucus, which announced it would back the bill. "I think President Trump is really making fools of the members of Congress, of his own party," she said in her weekly press conference.

Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a funding mechanism that -- absent a budget and the regular appropriations process -- wraps federal spending into

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said
