THIS BLOG IS NOT A STORY, A VERSE, OR LIGHT HEARTED CHIT-CHAT, BUT ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS BEING HELD OVER THE HEADS OF EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHOSE VERY LIVES ARE DEPENDENT ON DISABILITY CHECKS OR PENSIONS, OR WHO HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE DEPENDENT ON THOSE THINGS.

WHAT AM I RANTING ABOUT, YOU MIGHT ASK…WELL, I WILL TELL YOU…

IT ALL STARTED LAST WEDNESDAY WHEN I FOUND A NOTICE ON MY DOOR TELLING ME THAT IF I WAS DEPENDENT ON SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS TO PAY MY RENT THAT I MIGHT NOT BE GETTING THE CHECK AND THAT THE PLACE WHERE I AM CURRENTLY LIVING "WAS UNDERSTANDING ENOUGH NOT TO EVICT" TILL THE MATTER WAS RESOLVED.

JUST ONE LITTLE PROBLEM…OR RATHER SEVERAL HUGE ONES…

WHAT GOOD IS A HOME WHEN YOU HAVE NO ELECTRICITY TO COOK WITH OR TO KEEP WHAT LITTLE FOOD YOU HAVE FROM SPOILING…

NO PHONE, THUS NO LIFE ALERT IN CASE OF EMERGENCY…

NO INTERNET SO THAT YOU CAN KEEP TRYING TO FIND A WAY OF BETTERING YOUR SORRY ASSED SITUATION…

WHEN YOU WILL LOSE A COMPUTER YOU HAVE ALREADY SPENT NEARLY TWO YEARS PAYING HALF OF WHAT YOU HAD TO LIVE ON JUST SO YOU COULD TRY TO FIND A WAY TO BETTER YOUR SITUATION…

AND YOU ONLY HAD SEVEN PAYMENTS LEFT AND IT WOULD BE YOURS.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU STAND TO LOSE LITERALLY EVERYTHING SIMPLY BECAUSE OF ONE MAN’S EGO, CONCEIT, ARROGANCE AND GREED FOR POWER GIVES THE RICH THE BAILOUTS AND TAKES THE VERY FOOD FROM OUR MOUTHS?

AND WHAT ABOUT THOSE IN THE MILLIONS OF NURSING HOMES OR WITH HOME HEALTH WHO ARE DEPENDENT ON THOSE FUNDS? WHAT ABOUT THEM?

DO YOU THINK THAT ONE WILL BE WORRYING ABOUT WHERE MONEY TO PAY THEIR BILLS WILL BE COMING FROM?

OR ABOUT LOSING EVERYTHING THEY OWN BECAUSE THEY ARE IN A SITUATION WHERE THEY LOSE THEIR HOMES IF THEY CAN’T PAY THE RENT?

OR ABOUT POSSIBLY DYING FROM HEAT EXHAUSTION BECAUSE THERE IS NO ELECTRICITY TO RUN THE FANS OR AIR CONDITIONERS…

OR PERHAPS EVEN A BREATHING MACHINE OR OTHER LIFE SUPPORTING DEVICE THAT RUNS ON ELECTRICTY?

WILL THAT ONE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT POSSIBLY LOSING FAMILY MEMBERS OR LOVED ONES TO SUICIDE AS A RESULT OF LOSS OF HOPE…OUT OF DESPAIR?

NOT JUST NO, BUT HELL NO, THEY WON’T.

BUT WE WILL, THOSE OF US WHO ARE DEPENDENT ON THOSE FUNDS FOR OUR VERY EXISTENCE.

I KNOW I AM TAKING A RISK BY PUBLICLY POSTING THIS, BUT DAMN IT, SOMEONE HAS TO STEP UP.

WORDS HAVE POWER, AND WE NEED TO STOP SENSELESS, MEANINGLESS CHATTING AND START USING THOSE "TEXT-TWITCHY" FINGERS TO SEND MESSAGES TO ALL MAJOR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND LET THEM KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEIR DECISIONS ARE CAUSING.

IF THERE ARE ANY HERE ON WORDPRESS THAT EITHER DRAW THOSE CHECKS OR HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO DO, I AM OPENING THIS PAGE TO ANY WHO WANT TO LEAVE A COMMENT, WITH THE AIM OF SENDING IT TO THE GOVERNOR OF MY OWN STATE AND HOPEFULLY THOSE WHO WISH TO MAKE THEIR OWN VOICES HEARD WILL FEEL FREE TO TAKE THE TIME TO COPY AND PASTE THIS BLOG TO THEIR OWN.

THERE IS AN OLD ADAGE…"TOGETHER WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL"….WELL, IT IS NEVER TRUER THAN IN THIS CASE.

COPY THIS MESSAGE, TWEET IT, FACEBOOK IT, SPREAD IT ACROSS EVERY BLOGGING SOURCE YOU KNOW OF, LETS MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD, LETS SHOW THAT JUST AS THEIR WORDS CAN STRIP US OF EVERYTHING, THEY ARE NOT GOING TO GET AWAY WITH IT WITHOUT A FIGHT…FOR OUR WORDS CAN HAVE EQUAL POWER…

IF WE BAND TOGETHER.

JUST REMEMBER, WE OUTNUMBER THEM.

REMEMBER, WORDS HAVE POWER…THE VERY ONES WHO HOLD SUCH POWER OVER OUR LIVES KNOW THIS…

NOW IT’S TIME TO SHOW THEM THAT SO DO WE!
