    I was thinking that is true, if the money she gets could be used for nursing/cleaning/home health care.

    That's the problem I see when you work to help to keep the elderly in their homes, especially when their homes are too big and too much for them to care for. Are you really helping, or are you...

    I have thought this too, LDAHL. Places like Norway and Australia, for example, are held up as "good" nations but their policies seem actually quite racist. So why are they considered to have good...
