"I am a retired gerontologist and case manager for the State of Oregon. In my more than 20 years of working with the elderly, many of whom were receiving long term care in their homes or adult foster homes and on Medicaid assistance (which is a nice word for welfare due to the fact that even though they had worked hard all their lives, their care needs had outstripped their income and resources) I found that if the individual was a Mormon, no one from the church ever came to visit them, they went to court to force the government to make them pay tithes to the Mormon Church, even though it was in effect taking money from the government, they never provided food nor clothing nor medication from their so-called warehouse and they never provided assistance to these people to take them to church services or activities. In other words, the Mormon church forgot about these elderly poor people once they got their "tithes" from them. In my opinion, the Mormons stopped acting like "Christians" once the member of their so-called church could no longer contribute without court insistence that the Mormons had the right to force them to pay tithes!"

 

"I have been a Democrat most of my life, the last few as a registered Independent. I think I am going to re-register as a Republican so I can cast a primary vote for Herman Cain. I have also never donated any money to anyone running for office but I am thinking of sending Herman a few bucks. I'm sick of both parties and he seems to be the most unaffected from either one of them."

"Herman Cain is coming to town to seek the endorsement of Joe Arpaio. The sheriff said that he would meet with Cain after he first checked his birth certificate and his legal status."
