I will probably work as long as I can because I like it, and with 3 more yrs of Obama I will probably need to anyway.
Good for him. He is one of the folks you dont mind see get help but unfortunatly not how it works.
Not saying I don't feel bad for the victims of Sandy. What happened was terrible. And terrible things happen everywhere. But the ones sitting back saying why isn't the govt rebuilding my home. It just gets under my skin. I guess seeing a show on it the other day has me.
Some one was interviewed saying that they only had $180,000 of insurance and it is $300,000 to rebuild.
Good thing it is not Obama's re-election year or he would be throwing our money at it to buy more votes.
Here he is 9-11-2011.
Here is the inside. It had to be gutted 8 foot up. Luckily he did a lot for people over the years. A lot came by to repay the favors and help.
Sorry for the rant but Govt Socialism to buy votes just eats away at me.
I have no problem helping those in need but it should be done on a local or community level. And by volunteers.
