We have poor and needy here in this country, but not at the level of the poor in some other places in the world. Most of the hunger and poverty here in the US is almost entirely due to the neglect of an adult that is responsible or in charge of the child/children. Lots of resources are availiable, but they have to be sought out, and or used correctly. God bless all the children of the world, and pray for those in need.
Jim H. No one should be a second class citizen. If a union is desired for same sex couples it should be put into law unique to their type of union, not as the same as a heterosexual union. I'm afraid this push is more about forcing acceptence, than about being treated equal as to the law. Being able to choose is more fair than force.
Why do gays/lesbians want to be the same as heterosexual couples? If their life style is so great why don't they come up with their own type of lawful union? They don't want acceptance, they want benefits! Just because you want something to be the same don't make it so.
It all comes back to the same point. A marriage is between a man and woman biblically. What you endorse is making all unions the same as heterosexual marriage and it's not. It's not the same no matter if you make it into law or not. It's interesting that God created us, and left his word to guide us, and we become educated and try to dismiss him and his word. Nice opinion piece, but I think your wrong.
AM910 When you all were born, you were born as a male or female. God does not interfear after that. You can choose your lifestyle. A woman and man married are not the same as a woman and woman, or man and man. The only reason this is a issue is the same benefits granted to a natural married couple is wanted by others who are not married as the letter of the law states. You want one thing, and take from another to get it. The same old system used by some politicians to take from one,s rights to make another group happy. Marrige is defined by law. Call your unions something else and stop trying to make others change to your ideas, and way of thinking. The insurance companies etc. will pick your group up eventually, and if not tough.
Just a question? If the poorest citizens are paying so much in taxes , why do the majority get all they paid in back, and in some cases more? The big question here is why do all people, poor, rich,and in the middle pay so much, and so many taxes in the first place? We always want to argue about who's paying how much, but not whats being done with what's being collected already!
If you earn wages and pay taxes, and then file at years end and get it all back, you paid no income tax. No one can argue that all people that consume pay some sort of taxes. Many poor get tax breaks, just like some of the rich do. The whole problem is a failed tax code for income earners. The taxes on consumers, and services offered is as fair accross the board as you can get. The reason why you work is to make a dollar, and keep all of it you can, until you decide how to spend it, not until someone else takes it, or tells you how to spend it.
Who or what decides who is poor, and who is not? If a person works, and earns a living, why is it ok to take from one, and not from another? Let's all stop earning money, and paying taxes and let DR and his buddies keep us up. FYI you can believe I will never let a bunch of old worn out left wing nuts decide what I will or should do with my income. I don't have to be told by a bunch of loser politicians to know how to use my income wisely.
Just my opinion, Why do you stay here if it's so bad? Do you own a business, or are you employed in the area? If so all these people you despise are paying your wage.
Toda, "Absolutely mocoboyz ... just make a telephone call to corporate headquarters and ask them why? We live in a Resort Area! Thank you Pinehurst."
To most readers this would make it seem you are blaming "THE KINGDOM OF PINEHURST".
