Over heard at the GOP convention.........

We were so poor when we were young: I starved to death at the age of two.

Impossible, not for the obvious reason, but because they would not remember it.
Case in point, Marco Rubio is 3 years younger than me, but cannot remember US politics until 1980.
I remember the gas lines. I remember Nixon resigning. I remember hostages held in Iran something like 444 days. I remember stressful times, starting maybe as early as 3 years old, no later than 6.

We were Born Rich. So Rich The 1&ers are envious. We tried to Give It All Away, but It Was Impossible. We are Still Rich. Please GOD(who we Don't Believe In but Pray To anyways) take Our Money Away and Make Us Middle Class.

I grew up in a women only orphanage. I was the only teenage boy there.

We were so poor, we couldn't afford cloths, everyone was naked. Myself and all the women all had to sleep together in one bed at night. It was tuff times!
