I have 0 problem helping people in need. I think most americans are that way. the thing is the gov't gets in the way, takes our money and does a shitty job distributing it out to those in need.

Great...free cellphones for fishermen with drinking problems and smokes.

That's bound to have ROI.

How do we know he's not a volunteer at the kitchen just taking a pic?

Oh yeah, he's black. Sorry.

You'll note that I said "IF" in my post, I hope.

If that only were a true quote from Thomas Jefferson it alone would label that man as a genius.

I believe so, I heard it once on a radio talk show and looked it up because it sounded so perfect. I don't believe it has ever shown up in any of his writings but was just credited to him.

Another quote falsely attributed to Jefferson...

"Dammit, Weezy...we ain't hangin' out with no whiteys!"
