We have so many homless people here in the US!! We have empty buildings that are being used for nothing! Why cant they be turned into homes for people
that do not have a home?? All this Government money that has been given to States and mis-used!! I Care!! If I knew how to get a hold on some of those
Government Grants I would put it to good use!! The problem is- who the heck do you write to?? There is so much crap on the internet I just get
disgusted and give up!!
I work everyday, and I still do not have enough money to provide me and my children our own home!! This pisses me off!! The American Dream no longer
exist!! My children and I were suppose to get low-income housing by this November. I was told that I do not qualify because I made 22,000 dollars last
year. They were counting all the over time that I work. This should have been based on my regular income not over-time!! They have different set
limits for each county in each State. The income limit should be the same in all areas. The average rent here in NC is 500.00 a month for a decent
place. This does not include power and water bill. If I work no over-time I only bring home around 350.00 a week. With over-time I can make 450.00 a
week..I have not been able to obtain the 500.00 a week that I need so that me and my children can survive!! The prices of Food and Gas are horrible
here!! Gas has went up to 4.00 a gallon. I have a Jeep Wrangler that cost around 60.00 a week just to go to work and back. Basically all of us regular
people here in the US are just Working so we can get to work!!
I have no problem with accepting that I have to work 7 days a week..I just cant do 16 hours in one day. My job is very physical working in the
Healthcare Field! I am working as a CNA and I take care of 10-13 people everyday. I also run the risk of catching all kinds of things. My job should
be labeled Bi0-Hazzard but it is not. The work I do is very dangerous because I am working around Body Fluids everyday. I have to be so careful!! I
love the people that I care for!! But I think I deserve to atleast be able to make a decent living!!
I am living with my boyfriend, and my youngest son 17 wanted to live with one of his friends. I pay all of his bills so atleast he can be happy! MY
oldest son is 25 and has taken off to Nashville, TN to attempt to make it in the music business!! He and his girlfriend are doing fine! My youngest
one is just no where near being ready to survive on his own!! I have been working so hard to find us a HOME!! My youngest son does not like my
boyfriend or his 20 year old son. I wish we could just live and be a happy family, but I do not see marriage occurring. I deserve a husband that will
take care of both me and my children!! I am doing the best I can to make everyone happy! My youngest son is my Baby Bear and means more to me than
I must keep going and the best thing I can do is just work everyday. It is wearing my physical body out!! I feel so drained taking care of sick
people!! There are no jobs around here..unless you want to work in Fast Food. Large companies are shutting down. I am thankful that atleast I have a
I was raised in a middle class home. My grandfather died at age 38 working himself to death to provide my mother and grandmother security. My
grandfather built my mother a home and payed off his and my grandmothers home. My grandmother died and my mom and her husband moved in..my youngest
son and I had been living in the basement apartment since his birth. I never thought that we would ever be without a home!! My mother is a selfish
bitch and will not let us move back in the basement apartment.
Along time ago..I decided I would go back to college and try and make a life for me and my children! I finally made it and got my chance back in
Sept-2006. I was accepted to work for US Customs and Border Patrol in Piegan, Montana. This job was in such a remote place that it came with housing!!
I thought to myself finally I could provide me and my children with a home together!! I was attacked and taken from a Bridge in Charleston, West
Virginia near the Amtrak Station. I was put on another Bridge about 1 or 2 miles from where I was located. I was found walking around in shock. I had
to return to NC and was talking about being taken by Aliens. I was beat up by local cops and thrown into a Mental Hospital and TORTURED! This action
taken against me ruined my career with Homeland Security. When I was released from the hospital..my mother threw me out on the street homeless!! I had
sold all that I had to go and work for Homeland Security..which was my old Jeep Wrangler to my dad for like 1,200.00 and he threw in a Train ticket to
get to Montana. My jeep was worth atleat 3,000 dollars but I was desperate and took what I could get out of it.
My family is just not worth a damn!! Continue-
