You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

sadly neither McCain nor Obama prevented this woman from trying to buy a house she obviously couldn't afford. At least there are still plenty of Obamaphiles around who will pay $$$$$$ for anything with his signature on it.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
I don't see the point of this thread, either, besides abstract symbolism...
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
Yep, you're right. John McCain understands what it's like to be one of the little people, struggling, fighting for survival.
Alright, lets get down to the facts of the case shown at hand.
Destiny J Williams, Unmarried Mother of Three.
Her career at the time was a Surgical Technician, the average salary for a person in that field of work is 36k.
We're assuming at the moment that she's living in a two bedroom home, since she mentions the need to move into a three bedroom home. Probably one bedroom for her and her former beau, and one for her two, now three children.
As of 2007 (Reference) the general Cost Per Child (for just a single child) by age 17 was 148k. Divide 148k by Seventeen and you get 8.7k.
8.7k * 3 = 26.1k.
Leaving her only 10k a year for her own clothing, transportation, food, housing, health care, etc etc.
This is of course assuming she was making the average for a Surgical Technician, which I doubt.
Also, it's her fault for having a third child, when you have a child you accept the risks and responsibilities. That includes the risk of a Special Needs child.
That's just plain stupid. Congradulations, this chick failed at math and common sense.
That is not Obama's fault, in fact, had he not sent her that letter, she would not have the chance to extend things as much as she does now.
Now, this is all rather simplified math. I don't have the time or the aptitude to go into specifics, so it's a bit rough. Any mathematician could come in here and go 'no no all wrong' if my aim were perfect accuracy. It's not. Don't bother with that tactic I'll just point to this part of my post.

This is very sad. I'm sure she cherished that letter, and I hope she'll get enough money for it to tide her over until times improve.
As for using her misfortune as a partisian bitch-slap, shame on some of you.
