  • Pshh, 30 million? For a few dollars I'll run around with a megaphone yelling "NO MORE PENIS IN THE VAGINA." In 30-40 years Africa will be rid of AIDS.

  • Sorry but it's not all that philanthropic. That money, (our taxes) is going right into the coffers of drug companies and UN NGO's. One more way to loot the middle class and move their momey into the possession of the elite.

    that makes no sense as you contradict yourself in the same paragraph all the while claiming to care about africans then using the word renigged. You make as much sense as tits on a bull.
