Couldn't agree more.
I saw a New Jersey man on the news the other night that was waiting on his home owners to settle and was complaining that the $18K the government had GIVEN him was gone and he needed more. He was demanding more.
Give me a break. I too remember Hugo and 17 days with no power, days with no school or work. Claimed the damages to the insurance and waited. NEVER saw a dime of any government relief money.
I am no better than anyone else however the "I am entitled" mentality of people today kills me. I owe no one anything, if I choose to help others in need it will be at my discretion.....
Yep, I give to charity and it also is at my discretion. My Dad found a coffee cup and a small change jar with $14.+ in it after Ike. Concrete slab all that was left of his house. He bought his first EVER new auto, at 72 years old. Paid in full for it as well, with his insurance money.

The weeper of the house only cares about PAC checks from the wealthy in return for his support for tax breaks to the rich.

But, I don't recall Boner getting emotional over that. Isn't that strange? Something so tragic you could really cry over, he doesn't! He crys over the rich having to pay more taxes. What an odd ball!

I was heavily involved in the Hugo clean up and never saw one dime of federal money come to any people in our area. Mostly, homeowners used their homeowners insurance to pay for repairs to their homes. It was so profitable that I could hardly keep from wishing for another hurricane.

Don't tell me what I would do and wouldn't. We were hit by hurricane Hugo that in addition to being a hurricane spawned small tornadoes where I live. We went over two weeks without the first sign of a power company or any kind of help. It was everyone helping themselves and then helping their neighbors. I didn't scream to holy hell, I called my insurance company which because of all the claims took a while, put a tarp over the roof that caved in from falling trees and flying debris, taped up the windows that were broken and blown out and sat with a toddler day in and day out. We were fortunate to have generators and one stayed at home and my husband took the other to work with him, so he could make money for our business that was destroyed. Eventually, some guys from the federal government did come to see our damage and were more concerned about the damn trees that had been blown down than the fact my ass was sitting in a house that was a hot mess. Cry me a river Arnold, just as you do for the Sandy victims. I didn't get squat from the government, but I'm not so empathetic that I can't feel what they're going thru, but it doesn't change my mind on helping them versus "giving" away money for "perks" that have nothing to do with their situation.
What you're displaying is called caving. It's no different than if you were to go get a $50 withdrawal from your bank and they said before we give you your money, you must help build a new concession stand at Charlotte Motor Speedway by giving us $100. Knowing you, you'd give them $100 to get your $50.

Arnold, your fellow posters on here need to welcome you to the Sheep Club. Just like dumb sheep that don't know anything better than to follow their leader, be taken care of by their leader and then be led to the slaughter. Be proud that you're being led around like a dumb farm animal that is literally and figuratively spesking being killed with kindness. Baaaaaa, baaaaa, baaaaaa...
Now, I like that. Jesus made many references about the sheep and the goats, with the sheep being his true followers. I guess that puts you on the goat team. Let's keep it like that. Silver is the leader of the goat team. That's where you fit.

After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said:

'Let me see if I've got this right.

'You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning.

'You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride.

'You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a checkbook, and apply for a job.

'You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass the final exams.

'You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card.

'You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.

'You want me to do all this, and then you tell me......

Who's talking about Jesus? We're talking about hurricanes and people dumb as sheep. BTW, since you only read the red print in the Bible, the lamb (Jesus) also is referred to as a lion 29 times. It's known as an anomaly. He will no longer be the lamb led to slaughter, but He will be the lion that comes back to take care of business because lambs aren't known for their mean disposition or strength. I'm good with the goats, but you can call us the lions if you want and Silver can still be the leader.

Matthew 25: 31-46 tells your story....but you will never understand it regardless of what it says and how plainly it is written. You choose money over people's needs. Continue on as a member of Silver's goat farm. That's where have given you allegiance.

There is no interpretation needed. It is in plain English.
"But Lord, when did we see you hungry and in need?", the people asked on Judgement Day.

"As you did to the least of these my brothers, you did the same to me", Jesus replied.

What kind of 'interpretatiion' do you need from that?

You have chosen money over Jesus....plain and simple.

Arnold, you believe the scriptures the way you want and I will do the same without judging your interpretation. Please reserve your judgement of me about my religious beliefs, since I'm certain no one died and made you God within the last hour. Have a nice evening.

I am certainly not God and never made any such claims. I just understand English well enough to know what was said and written in the scripture. I think you know in your heart that I am right, and that any interpretation is not needed. It plainly says what it says. Whether you choose to practice it or not is entirely your business, but you certainly cannot deny the words. And, I wish you a nice evening as well. Remember. Those are the words of Jesus...not mine.

Yes, I have faith in America. Call me a fool if you will, but I see the history of America and I think it is holding strong to its core values.
I have zero faith in a god, as I have not seen a god do a damned thing.
