$10 milllion for one terrorist or for a homeless shelter
    #2794049 - 06/15/04 07:32 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

No folks, we never have enough money to feed the homeless. God forbid *gasp* we do anything constructive and Christian with our money.

$10,000,000 for one ordinary terrorist? WTF? And when there are thousands upon thousands?

What kind of fucking idiots are these who post the bounty? Someone who was an enemy would turn on another for nothing (or practically nothing). Why $10,000,000? Does Bush & co assume that the entire world is made of like-minded greedy bastards?

In the good old days, you could get somebody whacked in the neighborhood for $5 to $10K. Information as to whereabouts would ony get you a few hundred. Inflation...

Government monies, also known as tax dollars, should not be used for homeless shelters.

Goverment monies would be better spent on homeless shelters.

Article 1, Section 8 disagrees with you.

:biggrin: Funny stuff! But I still stand by my opinion. Besides wouldn't providing shelter for the homeless be construed as  "providing for the general welfare"?

I hope you're familiar with James Madison...

"With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers (enumerated in the Constitution) connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."
  James Madison, 1751 ? 1836
  4th President of the United States
  ?Father? of the Constitution

The government should change or get rid of the laws that are causing people to not have homes.

Most of these laws are building codes, and laws allowing people to "own" land.

General Welfare of the United States.

Not....
General welfare of the people.

The framers were wise enough to know the difference.
