It seems Chuck is an extremely pessimistic person -- you know, the kind that believes the glass is half empty. My condolences, Chuck.

http://www.youtube.com/watch... Hey, Kentucky, it's only children. I'm sure they don't need a home, or food, or education, or healthcare, or Internet, or a car, or land, or any other basic necessity of American life.

Kentucky is one of the states where more people are on welfare than working.

That's true. A biz magazine, maybe Biz Journal, or Wall Street Journal, I forgot where I read it, but it's telling folks to not invest their businesses here b/c of our welfare to worker ratio... if they cut off food stamps, half of Kentuckians would starve to death... I don't know if outside corporations is what we need anyways. We need to build ourselves up. We need to invest in ourselves... Frankfort's spending all over our money on pensions and prisons, and that's not working either... yeah, the people need to get off the dole, but there needs to be more opportunities... I don't know the answers, but educating folks, getting them to start their own businesses, how to figure out all the legal rigamarole... empowering folks, instead of exploiting them... maybe labor unions to build solidarity.. just some thoughts.
