    Yeah thats right, The katrina fund raiser has already hit one billion dollars. I think that is awesome for people to show their support like that. But the overall winning donation is walmart... damn 30 million combined. Thats just ridiculously generous. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050919/ap_on_...trina_donations

    and this is just to bolster the relief efforts... none of this pays for the actual damage does it?

    I think that is all just to help with the relife effort. I dont think that the Red Cross and Salvation army do rebuilds do they? I could be wrong. I think it would be cool if ALL of that money went to helping the people not to rebuilding the city. Who gives a shit about the local starbucks that got flooded the people are the ones that need to be saved.

    thats not called being generous, thats called publicity.

    walmart is the biggest chain store in the world and top 10 rich people almost half are from the walton family. yet they some how manage to pay people only minimum wage and fire people for the dumbest reasons. they fight to keep out unions and pay people as low as possible. being stingy, greedy, and ruthless are how people become rich.

    look at andrew carnegy, john d rockafellar, and the barons of those days. they were all penny pinching bastards, but before their deaths, they wanted to be remembered as "nice" so they donated like crazy.

    30 million is chump change to them, however it despite this facts, it is still generous of them. they coudlve given shit.

    Yeah, I'm glad I'm not the only one that remembers the evils of these people.

    Not everyone can be winners, Steve, we call the rest "Wal-Mart, Target, and K-Mart employees."
