Same story, a little closer to home
This is complete bullshit. At first, the Katrina thing was a blessing in disguise. Most people including myself, received a little FEMA check and was able to purchase a used car because the one I had was on fire in a parking lot. It helped out when I needed it. We heard the stories of people going bankrupt and losing everything. It happened to some of my relatives but it never realy hit home. Well, now some people very close to me are about to be flushed down the drain after working their asses off for the last 40 years. Everything here seemed to be getting better, but it is finally starting to destroy the ones who had decided to hang on. The financial burdens of this shit hole have been quietly eating away at families until there is nothing left.
These particular people have been working hard to have what little they have for the last 40 years. The house is paid off, but it still sits with minor damamges that still need to be repaired. The job s they have are now turning in different directions in order to keep the busineeses afloat. At the young age of 60, these people have no options.
The kicker is that now when things could not get any worse, their home owners insurance is due next month. The 401ks and Mutual Funds and anything saved have all been long cashed in and spent. The $4,OOO due next month will bury them and there is nothing to do but sit and watch everything disappear.
The Feds failed, the State failed, and the douchebag in City Hall has failed. They say come back and rebuild your lives, yet they ignore those who stayed and waited to see how things would play out. The ones who stayed get no help. The Road Home is a joke, though these particular people had no claim to it anyway. The persomn who said “It’s a marathon, not a sprint” should be hung and chopped up into little pieces. This is a sprint morons. We need to get this shit fixed now, or everyone who isn’t a doctor or a lawyer, will be in the same boat.
Peace out Suckas
Hail Ming! The End
