    Teddy Sheringham is British, he could never have played for Brazil. Nor has he ever played for a Brazilian team.

    I WANT THE REPUBLICANS AND THE DEMOCRATS THAT ARE AGAINST THE HEALTH PLAN TO BE TAIKEN OFF THEIR HEALTH PLAN FOR 1 OR 2 YEARS AND WOULD WE SEE A CHANGE IN THEIR THINKING, WE DON'T NEED PEOPLE IN THE WHITE HOUSE OR IN GOVERNMENT THAT DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS ABOUT,. WE ARE ALL SUFFERING RIGHT NOW,. WE ARE MOSTLY IRRATATED BY UNFEELING REPRESENTATION. WE NEED PEOPLE THAT KNOW PEOPLE, WE NEED TO CUT OUT THE RICH AGAINST THE POOR AND THE RICH GETTING RICHER. I JUST WONDER ARE THE PEOPLE THAT DON'T CARE ABOUT THE COMMUNITIES UNDERSTAND WHAT IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING TO MASSES OF PEOPLE?

    WE HAVE NO CHOICE IN WHETHER JOBS ARE BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM US AND ILLEGALS ARE STILL COMING HERE TO WORK. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH OUR MINDS? ARE ALL OF US HEADED FOR ALZYIMERS.

    LET ME KNOW WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING TO US.
