Free Wedding Gowns for the Recently Unemployed

The idea to give dresses to struggling brides came to South as she inventoried her beautiful selection of gowns in the 11,000-square-foot wedding center. She found many designer sample gowns, some that had cost as much as $3,000. South thought, "What a shame that these gowns couldn't be used by someone in need." Dresses in a variety of sizes from designers Amsale, Jim Hjelm, Rena Kohl, Bellisima, Allure, Jacqueline's, Pronovias and Maggie Sottero are included in the giveaway.

Patricia South is offering select designer wedding gowns from her stock to deserving brides struggling to afford the wedding of their dreams on Wednesday and Thursday, October 7-8 and 14-15, from 4-8 p.m.

Patricia South's "The Bride's Choice," celebrating its 27th year in business, is located at 4066 W. Broward Blvd., Plantation, Florida. For more information, call 954-791-6007 or visit

WHY DO OUR GOVERNMENT LEADERS WANT THE NATIONAL DEBT TO RISE ?

Congress and the rest of our corrupt government love it when the national debt climbs. Not only do they get bribes and kickbacks from the Fed (which is not a government agency but part of a global banking system) but since it causes inflation to rise, they have an excuse to vote themselves some more huge pay raises while millions lose their jobs and slip into poverty and even become homeless.

The Global corporations ( which now completely control our government) know that even if people have no jobs they will simply borrow to buy the products they need. They will sell everything they own including their souls. They will steal to get money to buy. The corporations also figure they can sell to countries that have not destroyed their economies. If they lose money, they can file bankruptcy and get the tax payer to reimburse them for their loss. Then simply reopen under a new name. They have it all planned out. They get everything, we lose everything,

Face it, both Global Big business and the Global Banks completely control our government now. They want to increase inflation and government spending. This means more interest on the national debt which means the banks own more and more of America and everything we own will soon become theirs one way or another.

This why the only answer is a total revolt to remove the infection of the Global Banks and Corps.
All members of our government must atleast be imprisoned and possibly put to death for selling us out.

OVER HALF OF US CONGRESS ARE NOW MULTI-MILLIONAIRES
MAINLY BY TRADING OUR JOBS FOR FAVORS, BRIBES AND KICKBACKS. IS THIS FAIR ?

If you watched the news last week, you would have heard that over half the members of congress are now multi-millionaires. We’re talking like 40, 50, 100, 200 or more million in savings and assets. At the same time tens of millions of Americans were and are losing their jobs, savings, homes and have slid into poverty.

This just proves that our country is being run the Goddamn filthy rich, who’s friends and family are also all filthy stinking rich. So of course all they care about is the filthy rich. That’s why every move our government leaders make, every breath they take, is to benefit the Goddamn filthy rich NOT the people that elected them and pay their salaries, the tax payer.

Most of theses multi-millionaires started off as extremely wealthy but after all the bribes, kickbacks and payoffs they received for selling out the people they work for (us), they were able to amass millions. While they did nothing but trade favors for bribes, millions of Americans lost their jobs, homes, savings and ended up on the streets.

This also proves only the rich have any chance of getting elected to these high level government positions. Some people say “well you elected them or we elected them”
Well what choices do we have. They all lie, they’re all rich, all their friends and family are rich. Let’s see someone non-rich get elected. There’s no way . The filthy Goddamn rich would never let that happen. If you don’t play their help the rich and piss on the working class and poor than get lost. If someone that’s cares about the people tries to run the rich will crush them and have many times.

The fact is the only way to save this country is a massive revolt. Try and hang every member of all three branches of our government. Replace them with non-rich American’s that will be fair to everyone not just the filthy Goddamn rich like it is now.

I think it's awful nice of that bridel shop to donate free weddings gowns to young ladies that just got unemployed and can't afford one.This is a special day for a lot of young women. Believe me this wedding shop just made that special day for those young women all the more special. Now the bakery shop, the food caterer,need to step up to the plate and do thier part. As far as a location for the wedding, someone who has a beautiful back yard or a park even would be a nice spot to be married in and it would be free.
