O.k. I guess I got a little riled but could someone please explain to me why someone would get so offended to the truth?? It sure makes me wonder why she was so offended!! This isn't just somebody's opinion. As we know opinions are like a22h0l3s, and everyone's got one, but this is a known fact..this type of thing happens everyday everywhere here, how can it be denied? and how can someone be offended by it?? UUGGHHH!!! REDD

some folks are offended by what other's think is the truth. Look at all the fuss over the evolution and creation. Poor Mr. scopes sure offended alot of folks by speaking what he thought was the truth.

Being I lived in the bay area of Ca, up to 99, I know about the giveaway of our money. Lived a few blocks from a big asian supermarket. First three days of every month it was crowded with older asians, cashing a gov check. Mind you, none of these people spoke any english. If their child was here as a citizen, they could come to live, and soon draw a Gov. check. Went to drop off a xmass gift for the newspaper boy, he was Vietnemiese. His mother was a widow, and her mother lived with them. The widow lady told me that pretty soon her mother could start getting gov. checks, a form of SS. Neat huh? On the other end of the block I lived on, there was a rental home owned by a chinese. He rented it out to other newly arrived chinese, sometimes ten people living in this house. That was against all city zoning laws. Last I heard, he was still doing it. There are one h**l of a lot of Americans with math degrees looking for work today, we sure don't need the foreign input. Corporations bring them over to train them and then eventually the jobs go back to India in this case. This country is being sold out by both parties, Ralph Nader is pretty close in his thinking to what is really happening to this country. Truth of the matter, neither party will do anything to stop it. You texans, look at your borders, and we have a president that comes from there. Shame isn't it? Could go on and on, but better stop. Longer I write, the madder I get

My daughter shared something with me from one of her college classes about American History. To try and put it in a nutshell In the days of the colonies when things were pretty rough some officals came over to see why the death rate was so high and the colonies weren,t doing very well. The observation was too many freeloaders where not doing their share. A few years ago the grade school principal at that time asked me what the number one source of income for our school district was. I replied farming of course. He said no it was government checks and that was not counting retired people and their Social securitychecks. I agree it is way out of hand.

There are some parts of the country where welfare is not out of control and is used as it should be. If a person lives in that area then the idea that all welfare use is abuse seems ridiculous. We have very little welfare here in this county but in the next county over it and abuse of it is widespread. Maybe she sees welfare as necessary and doing the greater good in her area. If I had lived right here all my life and not traveled a lot I might be ok with it too. But I've been around some and know better. It's out of control overall and will take a voter revolt nationwide to turn it around.

Let me 'splain!! I sure wasn't attacking all welfare recipients if that was how I was taken!! Only those getting rich off of it without any sweat on their brow or calouses(SP)worn on their palms! I apologize if it was taken that way!! I just believe that the welfare is only for "emergencies" and not to become away of life or career!! Redd
