I told her that I would take $10 from her savings from her vacation savings if she didn't return my $$$. The verbage from her mouth was unreal and she accused me of stealing her $$. I made it clear as a bell. Return the money she took out of my wallet and I'll replace her money back into the vacation fund. NEVER HAPPENED! This child has everything and anything, nice home, nice things, she's the only child left at home etc. She LIES and STEALs. She just recently got off probation for STEALING A VAN and joy riding for an hour. Juvenile hall...probation etc. WHAT IS A MOM/DAD supposed to do? Live like a prisoner in their own home with dead bolt locks on everything? This kid has no respect for this house. I don't deserve this!!

    When there are Millions of Americans coexisting in the US with out the benefits of Healthcare do you forsee the US government and congress ever opening their blind eyes to the fact that AMERICA needs an over haul where HEALTH benefits are concerned. The US is the only country that doesn't have Social Medicine. It would take away the need for Medicaid and State relief. Everyone would be taxed according to how many people reside in the household. When I lived in Australia I paid approximately $10 a month for social medicine benefits (that was in 1980) I'm sure there have been increases but AMERICA and it's UNinsured need to do something. I'm one of those millions in the US with no medical insurance. Employers these days are not providing this as a benefit anymore and leave the employee to their own devices. Insurance for health in the US is outrageous and basically not affordable to those who need it!! Do you forsee this every changing?

Did someone put this up in a big inferno?

And...I forgot the mounds of filing and no file clerks to help with this! No benefits, No health insurance....really nothing to keep you on this job except longivity (the comfortable shoe).
