    You are right about many people not earning 128 bucks a day - as if this were a pittance, which it isn't. Take a look away from the USA for a moment and you'll find that many people don't earn $128 in a month.
    Yes, Cuba comes to mind...around $20.00/month.

    I don't give a flying f@$* about Bill's descendants, I care a great deal about the harm his business progeny is causing all over the world, to this day.

    Have you had to invest in a spam filter? Pay to get a virus removed? Lost time becausr of incompatibilities in Office, or even files because of crashes in that package? Congratulations, you have paid for Bill's generosity, and you didn't even get to choose which charity and which Serbian script kiddie fot your donation.

    Bill Gates' generosity... don't make me puke.

    They've made it just like Apple and Google, haven't they? We wanted free stuff, and we got what we deserved along with it.

    all i require is food, shelter, a lil bit of entertainment,
    and maybe a bud to smoke...
    some are not satisfied with a yacht, a jet, or a football stadium,
    and twelve well-heeled women in tow...

    the tripwire is the desire...
    how much is too much???

    Andy,

    You are once again wrong...It will cost you money for the bus or gas to drive there. 😉
