George Soros yesterday donated $200 to families in Harlem, N.Y. as a "back-to-school giveaway." People queued in lines up to 300 people to get the cash to buy uniforms and book bags for their children.
"Thank God for Obama. He's looking out for us" -- Alecia Rumph, 26, waiting in line for a handout.
Frankly, even though I believe Mr. Soros's giveaway is more a matter of politics than generosity (the amount is chump change to this man), it doesn't matter. Actions, not intent, are what counts in matters of compassion and charity. I say "good for George Soros".
However, what I find deeply disturbing is the reaction of Ms. Rumph. If her reaction doesn't bother you, then you may well be lost to any culture that believes in self-reliance, individual accountability, and a government whose authority derives from the consent of the governed.
