While watching the Armenia Fund telethon 2003, I decided to visit their website and see what projects the fund has done. While doing so, I came upon this project which maybe I’m taking too personal, but for the Armenian Fund to refer to us as “PEASANTS” was just a little bit too offensive for me to take. Just because we don’t all own cars, we own our houses outright (we don’t have a mortgage to have to pay) and are not in debt up to our noises to credit-card companies, does not make us PEASANTS!!! Then again, maybe in the minds of the people at the Armenian Fund, by us being peasants, they can take advantage of us, since you can give the "peasants" scraps and they will be satisfied.

And the only reason the entire country is not already gasified (see Armenian Fund projrct below) is that instead of using our natural resources (pipes from the liberated territories), a few of our leaders felt it was more important to get rich and sell the pipes we could have used to complete this task, which would reduced the need for wood and have helped greatly to preserve our forests. Yes we have peasants, but those crude uncouth ill-bred person lacking culture or refinement are not the Armenians living here, but the people in power who I will not name again since the list is too long and you can read my past logs that name them by name.

Do we need the Armenian Fund? In my opinion NO. If you give the “peasants” the resources so they can work and pay taxes, then they can build their own roads, schools, hospitals, water and gas systems. What the Armenian Fund does is give the opportunity to make a few bad people richer and more powerful, thus a bunch of good people become PEASANTS.
