    The family she comes from is so freaking RED that they disapprove of her!  This is her second marriage, harrumph harrumph.  This family actually reported her younger brother to the authorities for child abuse.
    Judge asked what investigators found..he's a Democratic activist.  And that's it, that's his gigantic sin against his kids, and the sole reason he's unfit to raise them.  
    The judge was so angry!  He told them they couldn't get out of his courtroom fast enough to suit him, and if he ever heard another such complaint from them, he'd see to it THEY went to jail for false accusations.  
    I know that her childhood was pretty rough.  She could never achieve enough to earn their approval, and she's still trying.  How sadly ironic that the very people she's so anxious to please will never give her that, and the people she's condemned would accept her without qualifiers.  Can't help but feel a little sorry for her, knowing that.

      ...you can't loan her the money. And suggest she gets a job, as it sounds like she needs to keep busy and out of trouble.

        So far I've avoided the issue by talking to the kids..what is it you need?  Coats?  you got 'em.  Food?  On its way.  School supplies?  Check.

          And if she keeps pressing, ask your brother if he needs the money. She wants him to be the breadwinner, then he handles the money, and she can submit like her parents taught her! Time to gently turn the tables.

          they'll remember that. But hell no to the nutty teabag mom. The free market jesus can help her out.

          If you could watch yourself in action, would you be proud? I love everyone from a distance. A huge, huge, vast reaches of space, distance.
