landlords, lawyers and welfare workers

Landlords, lawyers and welfare workers are all conspiring to bring me to tears. I find them all despicable and I hate everyone.

I had forgotten how thoroughly awful the welfare system is. They exist through intimidation and are structured to make people feel like dirtbags and thieves. Their premise is that everything you think is yours, everything you’ve worked for, really belongs to them and that when you request help from the medicare/medicaid system (you know — the one we have all paid into for all our working lives) you are nothing but a dirty beggar looking for a free lunch.

For those of you faced with looking for care for yourself or a loved one, remember–medicaid IS part of the welfare system and you will have to justify your very existence, with verifiable proof before they will give you any help at all. Most importantly, make sure that you give all your stuff away at least 3 to 5 years before you decide to become ill or infirm. If you don’t, your children will suffer. And if you are the caretaker? Set things up so that you get paid for your trouble, so that keeping what is yours doesn’t look like a “gift” for which you will have to give every dime back.

AND DON’T SIGN A GOD DAMNED THING, EVER!

    what really kills me is that they make ME feel like i need to justify my father’s life, needs, etc. he’s sick, senile and can’t fend for himself. he’s paid into this system for all his working life and they act as if we’re looking for handouts. we paid for this care through our taxes.
    and they expect me to give them all the money even though that leaves me open to a lawsuit with the landlord and no way to pay him.
    unbelievable!

        We didn’t drum last night after all. We danced and got so hot…then we ate and drank all sorts of wonderful stuff. Then we went outside to the fire pit where we joined folks from the family camp out for s’mores and more talking. It was fun, but waay hot for me.
        Luckily we had a pool party to go to, because I was just worthless yesterday. Trying to get some stuff done today.
