"I don't think poor people should take from the govt" I busted out crying, "How can you SAY that?" [View all]



Every day we get to the gym at 4:45AM and wait for the doors to open..usual group...I stay far away from the Rs....I write letters since 2009 for DEMS and those Rs are not fans !! So we are standing outside the gym and this lady in her 70s ..comes with her huz.....she always wants to chat....this AM I outright asked her if she was an R...."yes, but we don't discuss politics..." You know who says that...Rs..DEMS are eager and proud to discuss politics, in my humble opinion....

Anyway since she is a big Catholic and came to Dad's funeral( he was Catholic priest and died a year ago).....I ask..."because of abortion?" No...then I asked if her parents were Rs...as sometimes in this tiny town you kind of inherit political stripes...No..

HERE IT COMES....

She says " I don't think poor people should take from the govt...get these free things for not working"..now I had a bad weekend...sinusitis/sore throat and broken car...on its last legs and when it goes so does my transportation....

I busted out crying and said "How can you SAY that? In WI single poors/elderly/disabled get pennies a day in FS...then went on to tell her that some folks who live in my HUD bldg make as little as $4grand year..I said "How can you SAY that?" again and I walked away crying..she called after me, but did not approach....when the doors opened I noticed she was whispering to her huz....

It hurts to be poor and it hurts even more when these Rs berate us out of ignorance....they could not survive 1 day in our lives..thank you for listening... I had to tell somebody..
