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

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

Which kinda negates the meaning of "fluff".

Jams, how about the bimbo scenario? Would the resulting poverty for you and your kids be your fault?

What do you have against helping others who have less than you?

"It's nice that medicaid was in place, and that still is in place for the poor as are other social programs." --------- You can certainly see it that way, but I don't think it is very nice that his insurance was able to drop him, nor do I think it is very nice that to get essential treatment, he first had to hurl his middle class family into poverty. Finally, it certainly wasn't his fault. Any of it. Nor was it his wife's fault that she happened to marry a guy who developed cancer.

Poverty is the fault of the poor people?   Wow, lots of compassion and a lack of understanding there.

Tell you what, Jamblessed?  Next time you post fluff, maybe it should be multiple choice so nobody accidentally makes an unacceptable wish.

It's nice that medicaid was in place, and that still is in place for the poor as are other social programs.  Social programs have actually gotten larger over the years.  Bord's wish just maybe granted, Yippee!

"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"?

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.
