    These men and women may have toiled their way to the top and be able to afford all the good things of life, but the best and greatest wealth will be to be at peace with their creator- God almighty, the giver of life and wealth. I am happy for them and their wealth. May the giver of wealth, God, bless us all.

    First, there are NO private beaches in the Bahamas, as ANYONE is allowed on a beach, up to the high water mark, although the owners of these cays would have you think otherwise. Secondly, these cays, and the entire Bahamas, which is an archipelago, have a delicate eco system. Over development will be their doom. Here’s to your 18 hole golf course, Shakira. Where will you get all the fresh water, and where will all the chemical run-off go? PLEASE develop responsibly, like Belize — a model of eco-tourism.

    My comments, as appropriate, true, sensible, accurate and factual as they are, will be scrutinized, then tossed off as the cry of some madman. It is their yard and I am but a guest.
    You know as well as I do someone needs to say these things and say them often and in as many venues as possible. No, it won’t sell vacations in Cancun or Reebocks or iPods. News organisations are businesses who sell ads and use sensationalism to do it. they are not there to heroically inform you. I, on the other hand, have a great privilege of free speech and access (yes, owing to some of these psychopathic humanoids). I am convinced that it is at least among my duties to inform and put the facts out there wherever I can and however I can. when people do righteous things they feel like they are in some way a bit righteous. It is no sin. Indeed, it is what the greats have told us to do. But while we are doing it perhaps we can do it by appealing to the heart as well as the mind. Thank You.

    When those super rich people stand in front of God the Master and Creator on judgement day,He’ll ask them one question,why did u have so much but your fellow human beings were dying because they had nothing? I feel very sorry for them!!! Note: If you put all of the richest people in the worlds money together,it would be way more than enough to feed and house every hungry and homeless human being until the world ends! There wouldn’t be a such thing as hunger or homelessness PERIOD!!!

      Celine Dion’s island is in “Quebec” not “Cubec… In case no one else caught that.

      as for all the starving and homeless people what you are talking about has a name, we call that communism… There are more than a handful of stories of people who cam from nothing worked their ass off and now have millions. So instead of handing them over money for no reason why don’t you look into motivating those people to become better rather than handing them a couple thousand purely because you feel bad? Not to mention before you start bashing these people all of the above have given more to charity that you have so when your big imaginary friend judges them, I’m sure they’ll do just fine.

      Look a little deeper before you pass “judgment ” on them , I know for fact Johnny Drop.goes over and behold and would save the world if he could. Example if it wasn’t for him 3 kids wm3 would still be in prison for a crime someone else did, lets not forget what he does for children all around the world, they help more than any church as in the Catholic. Church setting on billions. So what if they don’t go around bragging out what all they do, so what it they buy safe places for their family’s to escape. And lastly prove a freaking god exsist! If so he was nothing kind, loving or caring. Get over your jealousy. And appreciate. What they do that not to many churches. Could ever come close although. They steady take only to richen their lives.

    I wish I could buy my own island. I’ve never even been outside of my state.It would be so wonderful to have so much money to spluge on anything your heart desires. I’m just barely making enough to survive. If anyone wants a tax write off, you could adopt me as beneficiary.
