No luckcat...I don't profit and if you read any of the above above you will see I have not advertised anything. I was just interested to see if anyone else enjoyed the gun raffles like I do....just making conversation like anyone else on here...I thought. Most of these lotteries are based on a state lottery drawing so I consider it related. But for some reason you decided I need to feed the poor instead of by raffle tickets...what is that all about?
Most of these drawings benefit a local fire department or something similar. No, their members do not get paid to sell the tickets either and the money goes to a good cause. So I will advertise that below.
Here is a link to a ticket I purchased today, it benefits a International Association of Fire Fighters Local in Cumberland, Maryland. That is a small, 65 person, paid department. It looks like a FUN THING TO DO to me for a $100.00 bucks. Trucks, 4 wheelers, boats, campers, trips, and 56 firearms...and all the beer you can drink...what a deal. I ordered my ticket on line. I know where I will be on August 7, 2004...THE SPORTSMAN"S BASH, check it out:
Please tell me where all these hungry people are. ... ..please cite sources of information instead your warm fuzzy feel good babble about all these hungry people. I believe you may have been misinformed by the left leaning liberal media.
Hunger in America is not as big a problem as obesity is, hunger overseas...yes that is a big problem....especially in Africa....(jeeze and not to mention the dang flies).
And, I am not saying that food banks and soup kitchens are not needed as a safety net. I donate to them and other causes. I have repaired houses for the poor in the Xmas in April Program for many years....although I won't do it anymore...and believe me, I never saw a house without food.
I am saying that I just don't think that many poor people are going to bed hungry and I cited evidence of that above. If kids are going to bed hungry, I would think that the problem is parental neglect, not lack of food.
How ya like me now?
best wishes, Dowser
PPS: dvdiva, please don't stun me with that thing, even though I deserve it...hehe ;)
