39. Yes and no, but I also realize it's necessary, and they do need the resources.

And if I just assume "oh, everything will be alright" or "meh, they're all the same," or "meh, they're all in the trough for the corporations," or whatever the fuck-ass worthless apathetic excuse is, then that opens the door for the bad guys to come rampaging through, and further undo/fuck-up/roll back everything we - and I myself personally - have worked to accomplish to move our country forward and help those in the most need - for the common good.

So yeah, I'm beseiged. And they're all begging. And I have to pick and choose. Much as I'd like to be able to be Lady Bountiful to them all, I can't. But I CAN give to some, and I CAN make a difference, and I CAN look in the mirror at the end of the day and know I cared enough to get up off my ass and do something to help.

So I do.
