41. I was raised Southern Baptist too!

Family switched to American Baptist at 12.
I rejected all trinitarian and mystical elements at 31 and became a UU.


I think maybe that the money to do all those good things should run through Washington because it unites us as Americans and, in the words of Willie Sutton, "That's where the money is."


Ideally - yes. However - and this is where that' "Let 'em Go" hammer comes from sometimes -

But I think most folks in my state are aware of how much we send into the Federal Government and then get back from the Federal Government. How little some states pay in versus how very MUCH they get back.

If you ask someone involved in this kind of triage volunteer work - you would be amazed at how much comes directly out of folks pockets and into our food banks locally. It's hard to get the left activist community to budge on giving more to the Fed here. And the Right and clueless? They just don't care.


But the 'Let them Go' hammer always seems to come out on this point. Always.
