Does prayer inhibit philanthropic giving?

I believe prayer inhibits giving. It is within the human condition that we have compassion for our fellow man. I believe praying satisfies that need in many, and they go away thinking they have helped in some small way. I frequently hear pray for this person who has cancer or most recently, pray for the victims of the devastating storm in the Philippines. My suggestion to them is to donate to a charity that has the infrastructure to actually get relief to those who need it.

Rename Affordable Healthcare Act "THE WAR ON DEATH"

Where is the Democratic Frank Luntz? Change the name of the ACA to "THE WAR ON DEATH". Declare all Health Insurance Companies PRIVATE CONTRACTORS in "THE WAR ON DEATH" and pay everybody's premiums out of DEFENCE BUDGET. Isn't the purpose of The Defence Department to protect us from our enemies? Can you think of any enemy who has killed more Americans than DEATH? Compared to the Grim Reaper terrorists are about as scary as a rabbit. Without DEATH on their side the rabbit is scarier. We already have a Surgeon GENERAL.
