unless YOU and others support family size control (read that as birth control), the cycle will be never ending.


Well, since WE are using capital letters to get in each other's faces, let me clarify MYSELF. I support family size control. I've been a member of ZPG since age 16 in fact. Saying "YOU" instead of "you" still doesn't make a false inferrence of my beliefs any more valid, but it does look rude.

My point was that the families of those killed by terrorism on September 11th have been getting too much money thrown at them. If people choose to donate money to them through the red cross, that's their choice. I can choose where I donate money, but I can't control how the government spends. If the government is going to step in and give them money on top of what insurance and donations pay, then how about an equal payoff for Oklahoma City victims? Better yet, how about the government stops throwing money at people who are in dire emotional but not financial need. Making them millionaires isn't going to bring their loved ones back.


LudditeAndroid,
questioning government spending and glad to be able to do so
