    Okay, my dad was a Republican, and he came from a long line of them, but I happened to side with Mom and the Democrats she came from. It's an instinctual thing. I had to go with what I felt and thought. I really loved my dad and his dad, though. Just not their politics.

    I really think both parties think they're helping. I also think both parties are killing us. The divide since Reagan is really bad. From Reagan, things got way worse. The righteous Christian right emerged. My dad and my granddad were great Christian men, but I think even they would question the Republican party NOW. They both loved pensions and social security and mid century health insurance despite Roosevelt.

    But, the Roosevelt Democrats have ALWAYS wanted to keep the lazy from producing but still living well, right!

    Well, here's a story. A woman who DOES NOT pay her mortgage! Hey, it's only RIGHT to throw her out!

    Thank the good Lord above that everybody is NOT a hardcore Repub.

    U.S. News - Deputies refuse to evict 103-year-old woman

    Republican money folks would throw out this woman.

    But hey, NO WELFARE! Greet at Walmart, old woman. Earn your keep!

    Just because she is old doesnt mean she should get free housing.. If she is so old and cant care for herself she should be in a home for someone to care for you. She gets social security. Way more then what she put in since she lived how many years older then the average person. She has money so why not pay her bills .. Why does she still have a mortgage on a house she has lived in for 50 years anyway.

    But every day, Democrats are pissing me off more and more, more so than Republicans are.

    Old. Are you fucking kidding me!? 103 isn't old. 103 is beyond elderly. You think somebody who is 103 is capable of 'pulling their weight?'

    You just made the OP's point.

    I heard this earlier on TV news ... The house was paid for but the various banks and mortgage companies that have passed it around cannot find the paperwork.

    So, without knowing the facts, you would throw an 83 year old and a 104 year old woman out on the street. In winter. At Christmas. No place else to go. You really believe that this situation has only one possible ending?

    Mean for no other reason than to be mean. That's why I hate pubs/baggers too.

    BINGO!

    Fifty years of making payments, the bank screws up and loses the paperwork so, rather than look for alternatives, throw them out on the street.

    Why do you think people are incompetant simply because they are older?

    There are tons of great things elderly people can do to contribute to society.

    Bank did not cause this. Someone in her family took out a loan in her name against her house. So someone in her family did it to her. Not the bank. That person should be in jail.
