I have a Republican friend with an ego problem. He kidded me and asked how I could survive with my Veterans Disability or Social Security disability checks not coming.
He said "this  is a good lesson, don't depend on the Government for anything,"
I lived in a house for 2 months without water because I had no money to pay the bill. Black garbage bags fit great on toilets  and I wont go into any detail how I managed to deal with the xxxx.
I learned how to borrow from pharmacies to help my son. Medic 1 told me about a hospital where I could get free supplies for him. I had friends bring me food and water and when I had something ,I shared. I have always been humble. Being poor showed me unconditional love. Life is not fair. Sometimes bad choices can hurt. Sometimes Bad people can hurt a lady taking a shower in my house this second. She works 3 jobs to care for her kids. I have a crush on her but I am old enough to be her Dad so I treat
her as a Gentleman should.
Every poorperson I know does not want to STAY poor. Higher wages now call for certain skills .If your 30 or older its tough to get those skills.
I say to all my Republican friends I wonder when you lost your soul.
I will make it without my Government checks and I will make sure all the people I know who get checks have what they need to survive. I love them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
