If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Help Requested!

I lost my job three weeks ago. When I applied for unemployment I was informed that I owed $1654.00 from overpayment 5 years ago. That was because when I shut my cabinetshop down, I didn't know that the unemployment insurance I was paying didn't apply to me, the owner, and I applied for it...so, I received a bit over $5,000.00 in unemployment that I was not entitled to. I was able to scrimp and save over the years and pay it down to the above amount.

To heap insult on injury our phones are turned off and we lost cable/internet today. I'm sitting in Panera borrowing their internet connection...

To make a long story short. i will be evicted from my apartment on Christmas week (there's some irony there), if I don't raise $2,500.00 in back rent and penalties. My wife has been out of work for almost five years...when Office Depot cut back in it's assistant managers...

We're pretty desperate.  I have about 10 days to either find work, or scrap up the money. We will move anywhere anyone needs a cabinetmaker/trim carpenter with 16 years experience.

We have for the first time in our lives applied for housing assistance, and all the other crap the government uses to make slaves of us all. Hopefully, something will come through, in the mean time, I am asking for help from any one who reads this.

I would like to thank President Obama for flooding the market with illegal workers who will displace even more American citizens. I suspect that as I work (or used to) that I won't be able to find work in the metro-Baltimore area. I would LOVE to move to Texas, where the economy is booming, but I doubt that I'll ever be able to afford to do so.

So please, if you can afford to do so, hit the paypal button on the right side of the screen...every penny will help.
