  • Another Marxist program promoted by this Website. You can either afford to replace your roof, or you should be getting wet. Not replacing your roof with my tax dollars.

    • If you’re worried about HOMEOWNERS spending your tax money you’re worried about the wrong thing! You should be WORRRIED about the immigrants coming here to spend OUR tax money not your fellow citizens!!!! GOOD DAY!

    • Not promoted – just this medium passing the information on to it’s readers. Sort of like those Amber Alerts or tests of the Emergency Broadcast System.

  • I want someone to buy me a new roof too. And…..how bout paying my student loans off too. Take care of my medical bills too. Needs my SNAP and section 8 too. Who needs to work for a living anymore?

    • Some people in this world are sick and disabled, prohibiting them from holding down a job that would enable them to pay for what they need. Some people are in situations that are beyond their control. I hope all the people making awful comments about this much-needed help never find themselves in a situation where they need help from someone or an organization. Where is the kindness and compassion in this world? Why are so many people so mad all the time and making such nasty comments? You must be miserable to talk the way you do.
