ETA: ^ My bestie couldn't make it without assistance. Especially since they removed one of the biggest tourist draws between 3 counties which took away a great deal from local businesses. (Idk how servers make it on $2.30 an hour anyway, especially when your tips have been cut in half and you might only make $30 working a double when you used to make $200). He only gets a little assistance, from 2 programs, but with no insurance, he'd never have treatments for his migraines. We're talking $100 for 20 pills. In other words, don't take me personally or as if I'm insulting anyone you know. I beotch about the same things to him, and he knows what I mean. I'm talking about what I know and the ones who were documented to blow $69 million in CA, in 2 or 3 years time, on cruises, vacations, $11 million of that in casino's, ones who were charged for fraud after buying 300,000 home in one state while on assistance in another, and making huge $ on under the table jobs and saying they needed their nail apts and maids, on and on.


Other than that... Help! I'm so ready to run from work.
