Question of the day – Refugees / Vets


Question of the day, how is it we can find housing for thousands upon thousands of refugees coming into this country, but we can’t seem to find housing for the 130,000 to 200,000 veterans who are homeless? Men and women who fought and risked their lives for us, this is such a disgrace!


Question of the day – Religious Rights

So Confused

imagesOkay i am now convinced that Obama will not be satisfied until the U.S.A is blown off the map , what is wrong with this man i mean as if he hasnt screwed up this country enough already now he is doing this nuclear deal with Iran! Why is he still in the white house? Why has he not bean impeached yet? With every day that passes, and every day that he is in power this country is in more and more trouble. Lord help us because who knows what condition our country will be in by the time elections role around.

Finally a Smart Decision

There is not a whole lot that goes on in government offices or court rooms that i agree with anymore or at least on the news, but finally i heard one that i absolutely agree with.
The top court in Connecticut ruled that a 17-year-old girl named cassandra would be forced to undergo chemotherapy. The 17 year old child was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which with chemo she has an 85 percent chance of survival, but she was refusing treatment saying she did not want something toxic (chemo) in her body, and her mother was supporting her decision even though that meant her daughter would die. So the 17 year old was removed from her mothers care and custody was given to the state, so that she would have to undergo treatment. Yesss woot woot, finally a smart decision. This girl is 17 way to young, and to dramatic to make a decision about whether she lives or dies, and her mother is just crazy im sorry but what kind of mother would let their child essentially kill them self when there is a treatment for their condition? Anyway im very glad in this case, that the courts stepped in and did what needed to be done. What do you think? Do you think the right decision was made?

Ferguson case

I am curious to hear everyones thoughts on the outcome of this case, do you think justice was served or not?

My Opinion on Food Stamps

Okay so earlier i asked a question about whether or not you all think that food stamps are given out to often, and to too many people who dont necessarily need them. Here is what i think.
My family has used food stamps before and i am not ashamed of it at all. My husband was working 2 jobs at the time and we were still having a hard time making ends meet, so we got some (temporary) help.
Here is the thing food stamps are supposed to be for families who are temporarily going through financial struggles, not for people who just dont wanna pay for their groceries, or for a permanent fix. It is very frustrating to see people that my husband and i actually know who are more than able to work but instead they get on food stamps, get government housing, and they have nicer things then we do.
The government is making it very easy and very appealing to simply live on welfare. The next time you drive by some low income apartments look at the vehicles in the parking lot, most of them are nicer than the cars that my husband and i have.If someone needs help there is nothing wrong with asking for it and accepting it, but i dont think it is okay to live off of the government and not at least try to help yourself.
Where i live there is a church that offers hot meals to the poor, and every single day there is a line of people going all the way down the road, at least half of which are people my husband knows very well, and they are more than capable of working, they just dont. Now there is just no excuse for that, and that is why so many people look down on those who receive anything through welfare, because of people who just wanna take and take and never provide for themselves. So i think people should be screened better and only receive help for 1 year unless they are taking steps to provide better for themselves, for example if someone wants to go to college to get a better job than great, they should be able to finish school and get a job before their benefits stop. In other words if its clear someone is trying to improve their situation the government should help them, but no one should expect to live off of the government forever.

Side note – thankyou to those who left comments on my earlier post, i was not ignoring my comments but it was all leading up to this post.
