Yet Another Capitalist Taking Advantage of the Poor

Before I start I'd like to thank DB for continuing the long-standing liberal tradition of affirmative action by giving a poor conservative blogger get a chance. Thanks, DB, I couldn't have done it without you.

Yesterday came the news that Warren Buffet has decided to give away billions of his massive fortune to the Gates' foundation (yet another rich guy who received a tax cut under GWB). Today he explained that he opposes dynastic wealth and wants to give the money to people who are better suited to dispense it than he is.

Why do people assume that rich people want to hoard their money and don't give charity? The two richest men in the world are giving away billions to help the world's poor. The rich pay the vast majority of the taxes in this country. Why do they get such a bad rap among the Daily Kos liberals?
