I would have a much easier time taking advice on helping the poor from someone who wasn't worth $10 million. It would seem to me that he would be giving that money to organizations that help the poor instead of stockpiling it for himself.
We also need to educate people on the lies that people like Smiley and West go around telling people. We do not spend more on defense than on programs to help the poor. That is fact, as inconvenient as that may be to Mr. Smiley. The problem is that we don't use the money we spend wisely. We end up ensnaring people into a life of dependency instead of giving them what they really need to lift themselves out of poverty.
Mr. Smiley, when you are willing to help people like her, we'll talk.
