  1. I thought World AIDS Day was December 1st. President Bush died on November 30th.
  2. I have great admiration and respect for Michelle Obama. She was one of the best FLOTUS I've seen in my lifetime. Beauty. Brains. Class. Dignity. She has it all. I am currently reading her book, "Becoming". Great book.
  3. I am a lifelong California resident. I have visited several other states (Arizona, Nevada, Louisiana, Texas, Ohio, Oklahoma), but I wouldn't want to live in any of them. I love it here. Yes, the housing market is kind of expensive. But, there are many nice things here too. 1) Great colleges and universities. 2) State of the art hospitals; for adults and children. 3) Beautiful national parks (Yosemite, Sequoia) and amusement parks (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm). 4)Relatively cheap food since California is an agricultural state. One thing I don't recommend is to live in the cities. I live in a small town, surrounded by a rural area. And, it's helpful if you can speak Spanish, but it's not mandatory.😄
  4. I loved Martin Luther King. He was assassinated when I was 13 years old. I remember the day very well.
  5. When you get to be retirement age those 3 programs might become more important to you.
  6. 1) I am not a he, I am a she. 2) I am not a troll. ) The person I was posting to compared the programs LBJ started for poor people to being in slavery, so I compared paying taxes to being in slavery.
  7. The money you give to pay your taxes is not used to pay for things. Not by you anyway. I've heard that people work the first 3 months of the year to pay their taxes.
  8. Thanks for sharing this; very informative. Sounds like Martin Luther King wasn't very popular in certain circles.
  9. Yes, that is the point I was trying to make. I'm not an idiot.
  10. Technically, anyone who pays taxes is a slave. So, that would include you too.😒
  11. I wish I had a dime for every time I've seen somebody post this. 😊
  12. I will always admire President Lyndon Johnson. He did so much for Blacks,other minorities and all poor people. The programs he started are still helping people. He started Medicare, HeadStart and food stamps programs.
  13. If these programs are cut I guarantee lots of older people are going to suffer. Lots of seniors live on SS checks and nothing else. And also, Medicare doesn't pay for all of their medical expenses. That's why they have to get supplemental coverage.
