A Touching Story

I'm all for it. But the key is to remember that charity is and should be an individual choice.

B. Virdot had the ability to sort through the letters and determine who was in need and most deserving and who was not. He had the choice of where his money would go, and where it wouldn't. It wasn't someone taking his money from him and making those determinations on his behalf.

If you want to help someone in need, please do. But if you want the collective to help someone in need...

Bite me.

Maybe we wouldn't need so much government bailing out, in fact, if the very people who think that people in need deserve a handout would pony up a little more often themselves.
