Well said... preach on!!!!
How about voting in a poor democrat for president- i'd run, only problem is that I'm not old enough! :new_Eyecrazy:
This is part of the problem with our current federal administration...our leader himself has never lived even in the middle class, let alone the poverty level. I just don't see how he can even empathize with the loss these people are feeling or even the pain middle class America feels as they fill up their gas tanks. He has never been in our shoes. -_-
That's a good point about Pres. Bush, but there are some people who, even though born wealthy, just have that philanthropic spirit within them and they have an understanding of people's needs and do things to help them. I know people like that and the things they have done for people less fortunate brings tears to my eyes to even think about it. Just one example of many is when the year 2000 rolled in and this one very wealthy person could have had a big bash but instead did this:
She had a Habitat for Humanity party and took a huge warehouse she owned and had a party there were we built several walls of a house for Habitat. It was one of the most incredible evenings I've ever spent. I just don't think Pres. Bush is that kind of person.
Oh.... and when she moved in to her mansion a few years ago she felt sort of guilty for having so much so she personally bought and paid for 5 Habitat houses..... We need a President with a heart like she has....
Well, K/C's mom hit the nail on the head, I can't believe she said this! Here's the link
Barbara Bush As we know, the apple never falls far from the tree.
