Today's Cartoon: Warren Buffett Donates $31 Billion to Bill Gate's Charity

These billionaires who were once SO competitive when it came to earning their money, now seem every bit as such when it comes to giving it away. Though, I still say there is some sort of sinister catch to all of this "generosity". With Warren Buffett's huge donation of $31 billion to the "Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation", Bill Gates is now one step closer to ruling the planet.

I guess when you have all the money in the world, the next thing to do is transform that immense wealth into "influence". Through the work of his charitable organization, Bill Gates could achieve "saint-like" status, which could then easily be translated into "political capital" (if he so desired). I mean, who wouldn't vote for the guy that cured "AIDS", or paid for every child in America's education?

With over $60 billion dollars now at his disposal, let's just hope that Bill Gates' idea for curing "AIDS" doesn't somehow involve turning us all into "Microsoft cyborgs", so that the "anti-virus can come in the form of a CD-ROM (which would ONLY be available for the PC) ;)
