    LOL!!! I thought you were talking about between her breasts. I'm in.

    BTW, what's hypocritical about having a nice place to live? :eusa_eh:

    Yeah I'm sure he would still live in his rundown doublewide if he had $54 mil to spend.

    Somehow Frank seems to think 'liberal' means 'hippie'!

    You would have to pay ME to live in New York City. Not on your life!

    Actually...if I had $54 million...I would still live in my current house.

    Just think of the number of homeless people who could be living in closed military base housing...
    :eusa_eh:
    Number of homeless youths on the rise, based on shelter and hotline data
    May 27, 2013 - Sara Stokes remembers well the night she became homeless. It was the end of January, but warm like spring. She and her boyfriend at the time, the father of her toddler, were fighting at their apartment. He swung her around, choked her and busted her lip, she recalled.

    Sounds like jealousy to me.
    I wonder how much Romney has tied up in his several mansions.

    I've often thought if I won a large lottery, I could buy a closed army base or such dwelling and provide residences for the homeless that would be willing to go through drug tests and agree to work to keep the property up and help their neighbors with keep their property up as well.

    We could have a nice community with a park where children could play with adult supervision, basketball courts, tennis courts and baseball fields. Weapons and drugs would be banned. Since I would own the land, I could make the rules.

    Once the residents got on their feet, I would expect them to get a job and pay 25% of their income for their rent. We would have day care in the community. That would be a paying job, hopefully with a degreed teacher.

    Wouldn't that be nice?

    Excellent idea.

    If I won a huge lottery...I would want to do something for those less fortunate as well. I am not jealous that people have a lot of money. But I tend to get disgusted when I see the horrible amount of money being wasted on stupid shit when so many are suffering. How can some people not see what glorious things they could do with that amount of money? It just boggles my mind.

    Some people just forget about others I guess. But I would believe more would do for others than we really know. I believe most people are basically good.
