Much as I am proud for having served in a Royal Regiment with the Queen as my commander (true story, out of town when she visited and everyone else in my unit got medals) ...

I think it's more that we in the US have fallen so far in the level of our charitable worldwide actions at the government level than any other first-world nation, to the point where our miniscule 0.01 percent is just way too small compared to their more traditional 0.1 percent.

How far we've fallen ...

No, but they can Knight him ... (and Charles does remind me of the lion)

Are they counting the subsidy they give Scotland?

No, that's part of the UK, BB. If it's not Scottish, it's carpe diem!

You're Zimbabwean, Charles. Do you really feel that attached to your evil jug-eared kidney-eating imperialist overlords?

Screw the World Bank.

Do people really think what the World Bank does is "charity"?
