    Am I reading this correctly? Is there a white supremacist ideology going around that believes that Rhodesia is still the "rightful" name?

    I have absolutely no idea but I'm sure we'll find out shortly.

    Can't forget, that its a basic human right for someone to have all of the above, and if i can't afford it, someone must pony up so i can have them..

    But beware, THEY want to take all of our money...and our guns. It's amazing that after 8 years of an oppressive socialist regime that I still receive a paycheck and I still have my guns. Maybe I was just overlooked?
    I have done a lot more than most people in my life. I can't do more than what I have done. Considering that among my family people owe me approximately 11,000 and that my ex leeched approx. 15,000 out of me I would say that I don't have anything left. I have no savings left. I am living paycheck to paycheck. I am paying for everything for my daughter. If I wasn't in the Army I'd be so far in debt with medical expenses I would never be able to pay it off for all the things with my daughter.

    I do what I can when I can. I have even had to borrow money from my mom and almost have her paid off. I help out where and when I can but I can't do the large amounts of money I used to do to help out. So no I am not unwilling to admit I could do more to help I actually can't do more to help.

    I know I do more than a lot of people and I need to stop.

    It's fine, really. We all justify why we can't do more so that we can be detached.

    Except that's not what I did but ok. Think what you want. I don't really care. I know what I have done, what I continue to do.

    Yep...me too...there's nothing more I can do because I need everything that I have. We get used to living a certain lifestyle and we don't want to give it up. There is no shame in it and you don't need to keep trying to justify your choices. Now enjoy your next $15 meal at Burger King when $15 is enough to make at least 5 or 6 complete meals if you shop for the right stuff. We've all got "extra" money, but we have it marked for something. It's normal, and I'm not criticizing you.
