ONE: We Did It...or did we?
You did it! Working as ONE, call by call, you let our leaders know that you wanted America to do more to fight AIDS and extreme poverty-- and they heard you.
Late last week, the Senate agreed to two amendments that will add hundreds of millions of dollars to the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria and save the lives of mothers and children around the world.
I received the above letter today in my email. It would seem they would have us believe that something important has happened. However, as I stated in my correspondence and comments (which they'll NEVER post), throwing money at poverty is NOT the answer.
IF, everyone is TRULY concerned about making a difference, and not just finding another way to rip people off. Perhaps you should address the problem at the source and do as I've been mentioning for the last few YEARS.
How much would it cost to do the following?
ADD: Poverty & Homelessness to the International Human Right Act recognizing Christ's basic instructions to us and the LAWS OF LIFE.
REMOVE: Any and ALL legislation concerning Cannabis/Hemp recognizing that which was made by GOD and given to ALL in Genesis 1:29.
But I can more than understand why you WOULDN'T want this done. That might actually offer a little protection to the daily abused. That might actually provide REAL hope for the uninspired and disenfranchised. That might actually lead to the solution of the problem.
Poverty wasn't made by GOD...it was made by YOU, so you can END it just as quickly...If you REALLY want to.
The REAL problems with society is that it clearly fails to recognize GOD and continues in 'Original Sin'---('Not Listening').
