  •  me too..(sorry) (none)
    I admit, i am a wee bit irritated at the red staters, if you will, and am absolutely perplexed as to what to do about it. I mean WE are the ones who want to help these people..I think the problem, is that when we address these issues we are accusbed of snobbery,like we think we know better...I believe that these folks really dont think that they are part of the problem, they have been conditioned to believe that we are the problem ,and i cannot , for the life of me figure out what to do about it ...It really is extraordinarily ironic, dont you think?
    •  Yes - very ironic (none)
      ..but part of it is that they don't want to be "helped". Maybe that is the wrong context.  They want to "contribute" - to "help" - a more powerful and empowered context.  No one wants to be "helped" in this or any other country.

      Our message must be I think, "we are all in this together".
