Capitalism provides prosperity for the monopolists, and poverty for small business.

Why not simply "free enterprise"? The very term "capitalism" implies monopoly.
Although he gave away 90% of his money to charity, he still has a LOT left!
He did it! He gave 90% of his money to charity.
Warren Buffet gave away 90% of his money to charity and persuaded 11 other billionaires to give 50% of theirs to charitable causes. Do you call that malicious and evil?
The rich don't "have their money taken away from them" when they pay taxes, any more than the middle class "has their money taken away from them." The billionaires already are taxed at a higher rate. Fairness dictates that it should be even higher.

" Centuries ago, farmers just needed to buy a couple of horses and a small horse-drawn plow and a set of discs and harrows. Today, they have to go deeply in debt in order to purchase needed machinery in order to farm. No longer can anyone survive by operating a small, family farm as in the early days.
Slash and starve!
"For instance, TH readers applaud Warren's stance against farm subsidies..." SOME Town Hall readers. Certainly not this one! Farm subsidies should be INCREASED, if we want to go on eating.
