I don't have a problem as long as taxpayer money isn't involved.  If some rich people want to set up a fund that's okay with me.

Obviously the 'pets' are smarter than their owners.  They 'signed' up for the program.  I got to give credit where credit is due..... ;D

Looks like a majority of the early comments were from people who only read the headline and not the article!
