I ran a few food drives for our food bank in Wilmington, DE. I had a pickup, and usually delivered the food we collected. The folks standing in line waiting for the place to open for lunch didn't know me from Adam, but the moment I started taking bags out of the back of the truck to take into the food bank, several people would get out of line and help carry in the food. I never had to carry more than one load of groceries into the food bank, the folks in line always took care of getting the rest into the building.
That attitude made me glad to organize the food drives to help them.
If some of my words look odd, somebody seems to be stealing characters tonight.
That has been my experience in my area as well.

When Bill Maher donated a million dollars to the reelect Obama campaign he became more than a comedian and evidently Obama wasn't outraged. He kept it. Bill Maher is many things beside a comedian. He's a political commentator, an extremely bright guy, a spokesperson for the left and a very clever rabble rouser. He says what alot of you think, he can turn laughs into votes and that elevates him into a different category.
I think when many of us mutter "oh, give me a break," is when the duplicity and hypocrisy is put on display by the left. They revere women on the left but heaven help the women on the right if one is viewed to be an obstruction to their movement. Under the bus she goes.
A party cannot be shouting at the top of their lungs about gender equality then turn around and degrade a woman like that and not be considered to be the party of &*($#%#@#'s. A party can not be telling us Hillary Clinton is a smart, bright, competant woman and Michelle Bachman is a bitch. It doesn't fly.
I think you are confusing people who would be a ditz regardless of which side of the aisle they were on and people who are attacked for political reasons.

I don't see much of a difference between Bachman and Wasserman-Shultz (sp) from Florida. Or with West and the same lady from Florida.

But I see a big difference between Wasserman-Shultz and Pelosi or Hillary or Snowe or some of the female Republican governors besides Palin.

Those that agree with abortion and disagree with the death penalty are every bit as hypocritical as those that disagree with abortion but agree with the death penalty.
Actually, neither are being hypocritical. It's a different mindset.

Pro choice/anti capital punishment people most often don't view a zygote/embryo/fetus as having attained personhood, so abortion is acceptable. The criminal on the other hand has indisputably attained personhood and as a person, he/she has the rights which go along with that including their right to life.
==

Those who are pro life and pro capital punishment view the fetus as innocent and the criminal not. Biblically argued, the fetus is an innocent person upon conception and for the criminal, the eye for an eye thing is acceptable.

Guys/Gals, I hate to break it to you but the Democrats and Republicans are one in the same. Sure, they make us believe that they are different entities competing for "our vote" but in reality, all they really want is money and power. "The people" are the ones who are supposed to vote for the president but in reality, the Electoral College is the one who decides. The Electoral College is antiquated and is no longer needed - why do we still have it? My friends, we need to join together and stop allowing the government as a whole from taking more and more power. Pretty soon, we will have no rights. It's a scary thing but it seems to me as though Democracy is changing into a Plutocracy. I'm telling you, read David Icke's book "The Biggest Secret". It'll awaken you to the truth.
Isn't this book the opinion of Icke's?? Many people believe they have the "answers". We have at least ONE of them posting in here.

But our "system" is the only one we have, and has worked pretty well over 2 centuries. Icke will hafta do much more than write a book.

Don't worry about it, she never made it to VP. We have Biden.
Want to take a trip down memory lane with me?
But Biden is well known for saying stupid things on the fly while Palin is the ultimate example of what a conservative, intelligent, attractive Republican woman should be.

Why Jan Brewer does not hold a candle to her and all you have to do is compare their terms as government to prove it. And of course Christine Whitman and Kay Orr were not even close to being in her class.

Crap like this could go on for weeks. Who said what, and what exactly did they mean? If you're a detractor,(like you) there IS no right answer. Yer narrow mind has already been made up ages ago.

Probably NOT a good idea to bring up "feeding trolls", if yer gonna treat World Idiot as a regular poster.

See, now I have to throw in another exception. That is twice you have done this (a reasonable, logical argument causing me to either change my statement or my thoughts or both). Thank you.

Management of Hostess in colusion with union and workers. The workers basically said through their union that they would rather work elsewhere than stick with management.

Hostess had already been through bankruptcy twice with workers giving concessions each time. Management talked a judge into ordering more concessions and the workers said "Hey, you are still making millions, you give."

Basically the same problem the airline had with the pilots.

Food drives? For disaster victims? Thats a different animal altogether.
I'm talking about food Banks, and the regulars that go to them. Disaster victims aren't the type that wait for someone to show up and give them things. They pitch in and help out wherever they are needed. They don't have the 'gimme' mentality that food bank regulars have.
We probably run in different circles, but I've dined in four star restaurants, and eaten Hobo stew in Hobo jungles. Been all over the left coast, including canada and mexico, and folks most places I've been were never much different from one place to another.
It usually just depended on what neighborhood I was in.

I think he meant a Food Drive to supply the local Food Bank or to supplement what it was getting from other sources.

I spoke of this before.
You know, Lis, you could walk into a food bank on any given day, heart full of compassion, body well up to putting in four or five vigorous hours of handing out food essentials to the needy, thinking of how much good you will accomplish that day, and at the end of your shift, you just might have an impulse to run over one or two of the needy folk.
I've been in food banks where there were thirty to forty people sitting around, yelling at the receptionist about 'How Long Does It Take To Fill A Bag Of Food", and a bunch of racist or expletives thrown in. They sit there, cursing and giving workers a hard time at every turn. Several times, there was just me and one other volunteer working to fill food demands for all those people, and Not Once did any of them stand up and say,'Hey, do you guys need a hand?'
I'm not saying that it's like that in every food bank, but I've done volunteer work in Juneau, Seattle, Anchorage, Portland, San Francosco, Reno, Vegas, and Los Angeles, and at each polace, I've had at least One day like that.
Even after I conttracted RA, I still did work at these places. The One place I had No problems is a small community twenty miles north of Sacramento called, Woodland. That was a nice place to work. Haven't been there in eight years, thopugh. It might have changed.
That's amazing. I have not actually worked I a food bank but many of my clients have used them. But that was in small towns and they said good things. I sometimes wonder if there is a certain level of anger in people who have to use these things. They don't want to and they shoot the messenger.

It does if you are blind. Like Beyonce spewing her daily hate for the right when her false god won last week. Just more love and tolerance from the left. Do as they say not as they do lol.

Probably.

Do what you gota do. Everyone is going to have to think hard now. Concerning health care we know cost are going up and as for what happens Jan 1, 2013 who knows. O's word isn't really worth much so I'm guessing many businesses will now plan for the worst. In fact going back 3 yrs. when Beck was still on (Foxnews) he had maj. food co exec. on saying that for some time many cos cost were up and for a while they WERE NOT passing the cost on to us, just eating it in hopes things would turn around. My guess is now that that won't happen cost will now be passed on. America enjoy it! As usual the very people that voted for O will be hurt first and most. What a waste.

One of two things will happen. Either the fur will fly or they'll pretend it doesn't matter and they hadn't noticed.
And no, none of us ever believed Playboy was poured over by men for the articles.
Some things in life don't change even with you fancy progressives.
Lol. For what it was worth when my wife wanted a Romney shirt I found a rnc office in a high rent part of Tampa called Harbor Island. When I went in two young ladies greeted me and were happy to help. Thinking it has to be pretty from the inside out? Oh and women notice. When I still worked for the a/c co. one of my accounts was the head of the Sarasota school board where all the big shots worked. You get quite an education on some things while working up in the ceiling! Lol.
