Brother, can you spare $5 to $25?

Did you know that Barack Obama's favorite Bible quote, which appears in one of his two autohagiographies, is "Whatever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me."?

Jesus said that, but apparently, those are just mere words to the other Messiah, Barack Obama. You might have heard about Barack Obama's half-brother, George. Twenty-six year-old George lives in a 6x10 foot hut in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. If Barack Obama ever got a job as a brother's keeper, he would have been fired by now, because George is still living in that hut. Meanwhile, while Barack apparently hasn't sent a dime, hasn't "given back" to someone more unfortunate than himself - namely, his own half-brother - he wants you, the American taxpayer, to fork over an estimated $800 billion dollars to the continent of Africa. Like a typical Socialist, he won't spend any of his money on causes in which he believes, but he will be more than happy to spend yours.

So, since Barack Obama has dropped the ball on assisting his own flesh and blood, a conservative writer has decided to pick up the ball and run with it. Dinesh D'Souza has ponied up $1,000 of his own money to start the George Obama Compassion Fund. D'Souza is asking readers at Townhall.com to send donations of between $5 and $25 in order to add to this fund. The money is especially geared toward getting George the job training he needs to become a mechanic, which is his life's ambition.

If you are interested in doing what Barack Obama refuses to do, you can send a check made out to George Obama to this address:

George Obama Compassion Fund
P.O. Box 3384

Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067

The best part is that when he collects all the funds, D'Souza will offer the money to the Obama Campaign with the explicit requirement that the money be sent to George. Charity begins at home, but when that fails, it falls on others to voluntarily make up the difference. That is true compassion.

Good Day to You, Sir

I don't like the "send to the Obama campaign" part.

I don't trust them.

D'Souza should challenge Barack to match the contributions he collects dollar for dollar. I mean publically, in the media (if they'll carry it).

Conservative bloggers are also helping to fund a school in Kenya that was named after Obama and that he pledged to help support. They have not seen one dime from him.

You almost sound surprised. I'm not. Hypocrisy is the strong suit of the left.
