Oct 25th 2011 3:12PM Shirley, I just wrote to my family this morning on this very thing. You have said the way I feel also. Here is what I wrote this morning to my family:
Will we have to go back to multifamily dwellings like there was in the 50's and during the depression? It seems that with job losses, lot's of people losing their homes, rental property prices skyrocketing and becoming scarce, food and gas prices going up and not coming down, farmers losing their crops and everything else we may only survive in group communities. From some older guys I have talked to, yup older than me, they say this looks much like it did in the depression and afterward. I think things got better in the 50's and continued on but now it all seems to be regressing to that era. What's the answer for families like our's and our grandkids? I won't say I'm real worried about it due to the our families nature of survival but everyday it get's a little scarier out there on the streets. I am seeing more families down and out hanging out at our McDonalds in our town and using the bathroom everyday just to get clean. I am seeing families at street corners with buckets asking for money. When it reaches a bedroom community like ours it show's how serious this is getting. There are kids my grandkids ages that are with Mom and Dad begging for money to eat or for gas to get to their distant relatives. There are 2 senior mobile home parks here that they are either raising the rent on where seniors can't afford it or are tearing them down for condo's. Looks like my brother has the right idea up in the hills. Of course his place rivals any Army camp out there. Guess I'm just letting off steam about the world we are passing on.
Mar 2nd 2011 11:50AM Leave the guy alone. He's an icon to most of us guys that wish we could live his life. He deserves a plaque in every guys home. The beauty of his show is that's really him. If CBS puckers because of his life style then fire him. Don't rake him over the coals. You'll lose CBS. His show has done nothing but made you money and for you that's what it's all about. If the soft drink company or whoever sponsers the show get's bent then another will fall into line to pay the bills. Trojan, Jack Daniels, etc. You have a winner idiots. Don't blow it. We will always follow Charlie. Not CBS
May 26th 2010 1:54PM I have finally figured it out. It's not the law and it isn't Arizona. It's you stupid people. Most of you who are against getting the illegals out of our country are the one's who have been on welfare, getting food stamps, free schooling and free medical since you were kids. You have been taking from the tax payers so long that's it's now your norm, your kids norm and the people around you. You are turning our cities into getto's like most of Mexico is. Mexico is a shithole and you want your family out of there but they and that govenment are the ones who made it that. Not going to happen here anylonger unless we get more just like you in the political positions. Problem is when we get fed up no one pays taxes, as they are now, and your free ride ends and you will volenteer to go back to your other shithole.
