For God´s Sake, Please Stop the Aid.
The Kenyan economics expert James Shikwati, 35, says that aid to Africa does more harm than good. The avid proponent of globalization spoke with SPIEGEL about the disastrous effects of Western development policy in Africa, corrupt rulers, and the tendency to overstate the AIDS problem.

That may suit, but could be an item on its own as well.
Tutu calls for wealth tax for whites
August 12 2011 at 12:15pm
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, with Stellenbosch University rector and vice-chancellor Russel Botman, left, salutes Professor John de Gruchy, right, who edited a new book, in Stellenbosch last night. Tutu earlier called for a wealth tax on whites.
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has called for a “wealth tax” to be imposed on all white South Africans.
The former archbishop of Cape Town and former head of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) also called on members of President Jacob Zuma’s cabinet to sell their “expensive cars”, “to show you care” about the poor in South Africa.
Tutu said apartheid had left South Africans riddled with “self-hate”, and it was directly to blame for the country’s vicious crime rate and road carnage.
He made the calls last night during a book launch at Stellenbosch University’s Institute for Advanced Study.
The book, The Humanist Imperative in South Africa, contains 26 essays by leading academics and public figures and is edited by Professor John de Gruchy.
As guest of honour, Tutu recounted the myriad ways apartheid had dehumanised South Africans.
“Apartheid damaged us all; not a single one of us has escaped.”
In a break from his prepared speech, Tutu said a “wealth tax” had been suggested during the TRC process, and had enjoyed support at the time.

..and people just continue donating like the fools they are.. and they'd figure that after how much money is pitched toward aid for these savages, they're still going hungry and popping 8 to 9 "chillin" per female sow thus perpetuating the cycle. Whatever. Let em starve I say. As they say, making a mistake once is human. Repeating mistakes is utter stupidity at its best.

Our countries are in debt.
If I'm going through a week when I'm having trouble making ends meet and a friend asks for money, I usually say no. If you don't have it, you can't give it.
