Pastors and church groups unwelcome at immigration camps - Quidam65
You would think that if some group was willing to physically and fiscally relieve some of the burden from FedGov in caring for these folks, FedGov would be more than willing to accept. Well, I guess not. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/07/09/feds-pastors-not-welcome-at-immigration-camps/...

Bill Clinton laughs about buying 14 fancy Swiss watches - Quidam65
I guess the cutoff between being "not that well off" and "well off" is 14 watches and two rugs. The 15th watch or third rug would have pushed them into "well off" status. But we do know that ownership of one horse immediately pushes one into that category (see Romney, Ann). http://www.foxnews...
