There is a drop house behind my house. They have been skinning wild rabbits and my cat has been bringing the legs etc over my fence. Makes me sick. I
have to keep my dogs VERY wormed. That child who ate rats, truth is we dont know what the situation is.
Food pantries in my area are out of food. The state of AZ is giving NO ONE food stamps or health care unless you were already on it. It has been
stopped . You do not hear about it in the news though. I have elderly couple across the street who get 250 each for social security and a TOTAL of 150
a month in food stamps, and they have to PAY for prescriptions.
Us as neighbors help each other out. At the end of the month we pool what little we each have and make sure no one around here goes hungry. Not
everyone has those kinds of neighbors. Politicians are really out of touch.
I need a root canal now for three months, but I do not have 1k to do it. I can not pull the tooth as its my last chewing tooth. With my dental I only
have to pay 250, but where is that coming from ?
We cut on food, had to buy my daughter glasses. The power rates just went up again. Gas is going up again.
We may loose our home if some thing does not give. We have a one income family because I am very ill.
We do not qualify for any of these programs. We only eat meat once a week. We gave up tv. We never went out to eat. It gets on my nerves these
politicians that say, oh you will have to give up going out to eat a bit or going to the movies. CORRECTION, we are giving up medication, water or
electric or our home.
Now, now all America is like this . There are still some good jobs. Health care, medical etc . If you are sick, forget it. No mercy. Anyway, I see
kids around here that go without . Some are because the parents are drugies.
Some are because the one or both parents are sick and can not get help. I see it all the time here. We live it.
I have never had to eat a rat . I can tell you I am sick of chicken because that is all we can afford for the last two years, and I tell you, it gets
old now matter HOW you cook it, but we eat.
Just do not judge, or be so quick to make a call on this, because this IS REAL. People are so wrapped up in their lives that are doing ok, they really
do not see how others are doing and are fast to judge, when they have not walked even a second on that persons shoes!
