Do you have any interest in reading the Elizabeth Smart story?

What is your natural hair color and do you color it? 

If you were granted ONE wish, what would it be and why? 

What is your favorite Doritos flavor if you like them? 

What are you doing right now?

Forget it. Everyone has cancer and is poor and I get to be a size 6 but eat anything I want all the time and never have to go to the gym. Is that a good enough wish?

Baked sweet potato, packet of sweet/spicy tuna, and a small salad.  Odd mix, but healthy and yumm.

Could be, I have seen a lot of interesting "beliefs" on this board.

"Forget it. Everyone has cancer and is poor and I get to be a size 6 but eat anything I want all the time and never have to go to the gym." ----------- I think that Jams is suggesting that poverty is your own fault if it happens to you, whereas cancer is just a random calamity. However, that suggestion made me think of my friend Jane. Her husband got a rare cancer, when in his 30s. They had insurance and a house, but after a bunch of treatment, his insurance company dropped him on some technicality. To continue treatment he had to go on medicaid, but to do that, he first had to get rid of all his assets. Then he died, and she was left destitute. She managed, but she was poor.

Is cancer your fault mops?  Did you do everything in your power to prevent it?  Even if you do you could still get it.  That's the difference, Sorry I wasn't clear before. 

Generally too, of course.  Thanks.

"Is cancer your fault mops? Did you do everything in your power to prevent it? Even if you do you could still get it. That's the difference, Sorry I wasn't clear before." --------- That was NOT the point of my post. The point was that sometimes a person has some sort of "fault" in getting cancer (smoking, for example) and sometimes not. The same thing holds for poverty. Sometimes poverty is your own 'fault," sometimes not. There is no real difference between the two, although you seem to think there is. Did you even read what happened to my friend? What if your dh runs off with a bimbo tomorrow and decides that he doesn't feel like paying support to you? Then what? If that leaves you poor, is it your "fault"?
