Go Ice bucket Challenge, so we can raise money to CURE DISEASES and share this knowledge with Africa.   And if warlords and governments would help their people instead of oppressing, robbing, and killing them then one day Africa too would enjoy wealth.  But let us not think of how to make Africa wealthy, let us instead think of how to make America poor, because that will solve everything.

Here's some facts for you:  The Hudson Institute estimated the total U.S. net economic engagement with developing countries to be $326.4 Billion in 2010.  Of this, U.S. Official Development Assistance (Government) funding represented only 9 percent, and the rest came from private engagements, including private philanthropy (12 percent), remittances (29 percent) and private capital flows (49 percent).  The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is only one example, which by the way, has raised over $115 Million to aid their research and treatment.

I feel no same for my country, however you should feel shame for displaying such contempt for and demeaning these caring and generous people.  THEY have donated their time, their resources, and their ingenuity to raise awareness and money to cure a disease that is plaguing ALL of mankind, what have you done besides slander them?

If Africa had the kind of infrastructure we in America do, then we wouldn't see that kind of misery.

But rather than unify, rather than act in the best interests of the people, warlords continue to rise and fall while their people suffer.

Don't you fucking *dare* tell me that America should be ashamed, taking a challenge that not only raises money for good causes, but actually taking a chance that it'll hurt and bring a little bit of pain into normally monotonous lives.

How dare you cast judgment on people trying to help ALS research?

Like the man you admire but insist you don't worship, details and context are meaningless.

It's one thing to stick to your guns.

It's another to stand on a sinking ship.

But then again, modern Communists exemplify this.

The ice bucket challenge raised over 41 000 000 dollars for ALS research. That is not a "celebration", nor is it a waste- people use that bucket of water to raise awareness, and it worked.

I don't see why supporting ALS research is wasting time, but okay. You have a point about wasting water, but know that everyone is well aware about Africa's situation and we HAVE tried to help. However, it largely failed largely because of warlords.

I think due to the water cycle it is impossible to waste water.... and I think Africa lacks water not because there is not enough water in the world but transportation of that water as a public utility is near impossible with corrupt government and terrible economy.

You have... no idea how water works, do you?

None.

Zilch.

Zippo.

Further, the ice challenge 'BS' as you put it raised thousands of dollars for medical research.

So damned swift to pass judgment without knowing a fucking thing about what you speak of.

No.

Your ignorance does not make me happy.

This isn't a 'win' for me. This has only served to remind me of the failures of public school to educate kids.

No...

Let us take the conversation there.

No obnoxiousness to the other, from either of us.

Discussion and debate is meant to spread awareness and enlightenment. Already, you have shown that you are wiser than the poster of this deviation simply by saying 'I get your point'.

Points can be valid, even if you disagree with the ancillary elements. You can agree that progress is goo,d even if the currently employed means to that end is something you take umbridge with.

The problem is, with this topic, that you were simply *under-informed*. It's not that you're less intelligent. I believe that if everyone simply knew more, rather than taking so much for granted, wisdom would be in greater abundance. You did not know how water works.

It's not like, for instance, oil. Once oil is used, it's gone for good. When water is used, it evaporates and manifests as air humidity Eventually it becomes clouds and clouds produce rain. Mother nature damn well know what she was doing.

It's easy to jump on a bandwagon when someone tries to take advantage of you, as VladimirSeyer has, by pushing this notion that America should be ashamed for using water in a non-conventional manner. Africa is reaping what its sown. Ironically, in American factories in Africa, there's plenty of water because it's a necessity.  Infrastructure leads to water abundance. And if Africa's more violent places could stop ripping eachother apart, they too would enjoy that.

Nothing to forgive, like I said.

But if you really want to make it up, then do not I a favor, do *yourself* one and learn.

Learn whatever you can about whatever you can. Learn a lot and when you find yourself on the other end of a debate like this, then tell the person you're talking to the same thing. Pay it forward and let knowledge speak for itself.

*Hug*

Knowledge may be power, but wisdom is enlightenment.

Same here....and thanks. I feel like the American people, saying this from a American, need to wake up and help save the environment. I would rather live where there is no big business killing the environment than big business don't care about mother earth.
