This is really a rant, I just wanted to express how happy I am that President Obama signed the payroll tax cut that will extend it until the next year. I'm really glad to see that happen as that forty dollars means gas for my husband to get back and forth to work for a week. I've been reading about what forty dollars means to a lot of people and some of the stories were really heart breaking. Some of those people would be worse off than my family if they lost the tax cut. I'm hoping that next year it will also be extended as the price of things keep going up and people are barely hanging on to survive. I really think that the rich should start paying their share in taxes as it is becoming harder and harder for the middle class to support this country.

I really dislike it when people abuse the system. There is a person who lives nearby and they have a couple of kids. One of the kids is badly autistic, and I feel really bad for the parents, as that has got to be hard. I don't know what I would do if one of mine were that way. The thing that gets me mad is that she has a bus come pick up the kids, when there are plenty of parents who have more kids and have something wrong with one that will drop their kids off at school, that live in the walking zone. I don't mind that the bus gets the autistic child as that has to be hard, but I get mad when she has one drop the kindergartner off at. She can load up the other kid and go pick up her kindergartner, but I guess she is just too lazy to do that. Rumor has it that she doesn't even talk to her children or interact with them. What kind of parent does that??

This whole thing about Josh Powell makes me sick, what kind of person does that to their sons. The justice system let those poor boys down and the social services office sent the boys to their death. The psychologist stated that two workers were to go on the supervised visits. Did they send two?? No they only sent one. I feel so bad for the grandparents, they wanted those children, and the children didn't want to go see their dad that day. Another thing that makes me mad is the fact that the supervised visit was at Josh's home and not in a public place. I don't know what social services was thinking that day. I don't believe that Josh couldn't live without his children, he killed them because they were starting to talk and he didn't want them to say what happened to their mom. This guy is a sick person and really needed to get help. I know that there are a lot of people that are outraged at this whole thing. At the cemetery where the boys were to be buried, lots were bought so he could be buried next to them. If he was going to be buried there, then it had to be 25 feet away. I'm glad that people made sure he couldn't be buried next to his sons, as I don't think that he should be.
