Just Do The Math Bill

According to Forbes Magazine, Bill Gates is getting richer.  Even though he and his wife no longer work, and have been actively been giving away huge chunks of their 65 Billion dollar fortune.  They just aren’t giving it away fast enough.  Despite the 28 Billion they have handed out so far, they still have 65 Billion left in the bank.

Bill says he has no need for his fortune.  The money means nothing to him anymore.  “I’m certainly well taken care of in terms of food and clothes.  Money has no utility to me beyond a certain point.  Its utility is entirely in building as organization and getting the resources out to the poorest in the world.”

I pride myself on being a man of action, a solution finder.  I enjoy solving puzzles.

As such I submit this to Bill and Melinda Gates.  There are roughly 300 million people in these United States on America.  If the numbers I’ve read are to believed the wealthiest make up the top 5 percent, or about 15 millions people.  So there are 285 million people that aren’t “wealthy”.

Bill, Melinda, just write us each a check for $228 and your problem is over.

Hey you two crazy kids, Thanks!
