    There has been rumors that Washington wil cut Medicaid and Medicare benefits, which will disproportiately effect the health care available to Our elderly.

    What programs are there that we can pool our dollars to create a safety net for our elders?

    I love your post. It is nice that you posted it because it goes to show how dependent we are on our pimp to take care of our needs...and what good ho moves against the pimp she depends upon? You see, I like the analogy of the pimp and the ho because we are the ho that makes sure our pimp keeps money in his pocket. Our pimp provides for us what they want us to have and we become dependent upon the services of our pimp to protect us, to make sure we got a spot to live, to make sure we can sell ourselves to make some money in their establishments and a lot more. We only complain when our pimp ain't treatin us right...when they are smacking us around too much.

    We will dance for our pimp, sing for our pimp, work for our pimp, fight for our pimp, die for our pimp......BUT WE WON'T DO A [email protected] FOR OURSELVES WITHOUT OUR PIMPS PERMISSION FIRST !!! That's what good programming will do for us....see ya in class!!

    We are very far from our traditions. And we are also very far from knowledge critical to our survival.

    There is much to talk about and much to plan. But I continue to have faith that our people will come together to have that discussion.
