    . . .care about this.  It is for my sister who is on SSA disability.  She has been sick since she was a little kid and it is the kind of illness you can't see and I didn't know about.  She has been homeless, in jail, in a nursing home and finally got some help in her twenties.  The drugs help her and she is a good soul who depends on the absolute pittance of SSA.  And calling it a pittance is a wild exaggeration.  I can send her a dollar or two know, but I never could through most of my career.  I sent her some money to have dinner on me recently.  You know what she did? She went to McDonalds a couple of times with her friends so that they could enjoy a meal out too.  GD it, people like her deserve to be protected and helped.

    Money ain't free speech and it won't buy you love.
