The "other side" doesnt hate children, they just wanna kill them before they are born, but in our wonderful presidents eyes its okay to kill them as they are being born. I think he voted 3 times to allow that as a senator in Illinois. :bang: LOL, he's gettin me started again :mrgreen:

Kay here is the link that explains the Corporate Angel Network---http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Charitable+group+recruits+corporate+jets+for+good+cause.-a0139718692

It is truly a great thing they are doing. Unfortunately, it may be done allot less with people donating less and corporations having to cut back on expenditures.

This is just one example of "Change"

:soapbox: I don't know if any of you remember a thing from the past called the Master Settlement Agreement? It was an agreement signed by the tobacco companies & the Attorneys Generals of the US in 1998. The tobacco companies agreed to pay $225 Billion .....yep, that's right....$225 BILLION to the States over a 25 year period. The funds were largely in part earmarked for smoking related illness & youth prevention programs. Here it is 10 years later & less than 3% of the money has been spent on the intended uses. For the most part it goes into the general fund & is used for whatever. Think the Attorneys Generals REALLY cared about health issues. Do you REALLY think the current government cares about health care for children or do they just want the extra $38 billion to pittel away like the rest of it.

I get so tired of hearing how cigarettes are bad for you & cause so many health problems. If health problems are such a big issue, STOP DRIVING YOUR CAR. Oh, I'm sorry...that effects way to many people doesn't it. It's real easy to pi$$ off 20% of the people, but don't mess with something that effects the majority.

The report is that 60% of people in the US are over weight, bordering on obesity. Think that there are any health issues & costs connected to that.

A friend of mine had an interesting thought. He said give every tax filing American $1 million. No more living on welfare, wic & working Americans. People could catch up their mortgages, car payments, credit cards..ect. It would stimulate the economy, give some relief to the social service programs & for guys like myself who could live the rest of our lives on $1 million, it would create some job vacancies for other people. :D From what my friend estimated, this would cost somewhere around $250-$300 million. That seems alot cheaper than these $75 billion buy outs we are seeing. The only problem he saw with this program was that he doubted that the government actually HAS $250-$300 million. :lol:

Off :soapbox:

That would only be 1.00 per person Bob if they hand out 250-300 million.

Life expectancy keeps going UP, none of the major "telethon" diseases have been cured, yet we are fatter and lazier than ever. How can this be?

They will use any excuse in the book to take your money and it NEVER is spent on what they say it will be spent on. Just like our good ole state of Misery, the lottery was supposed to go to education, money from gambling to education, it actually goes in the general fund too, and our property taxes keep going thru the roof in the name of education. NEVER TRUST A POLITICIAN, THEY ARE ALL A BUNCH OF LIARS!!!

:lol: :lol: , your right. Just checking to see if you were paying attention. :lol: If the government doesn't have $300,000,000, I bet they really don't have that much. :lol:
