    I was watching a television show about this yearz tornado season....

    And the thought came to mind of .... who gives all the people hit by tornados and such new homez and help???

    I am sorry to be that way but it remindz me of all the people in Houston that do not have a home still...

    If any one has any information about how the process is handled pleaze fill it it on this post...

    I would like to have a idea of how or were tax money for emergency situationz are not bummbled in one situation and in another they are... and the people are still paying taxes daily for no relief....


    If the last paragraph seemed confusing this is my point; " in most states " besidez Nevada and a few otherz there are taxes on food, cloths, and cigarettez and beer; so no matter what your need there are taxes being paid besides; home or car or lightz or cellphone....

    I am wondering why taxes payerz are not recieving the same benefitz as otherz ????

    Just a question....

    Fill me in if I am wrong here...

    Habitat for Humanity International
    121 Habitat Street
    Americus, GA 31709
    1-800-422-4828
    [email protected]

    An estimated 5.4 million American households face worst-case housing needs, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Receiving little or no government housing assistance, these families are unable to find a decent place to live at a price they can afford to pay.

    More than 1,500 Habitat for Humanity affiliates are at work in the United States, building houses in partnership with people in need of decent, affordable housing. Habitat houses are purchased by families at prices affordable to low-income Americans, thanks to the donated labor of Habitat volunteers, the support of partner organizations and the no-profit, no-interest terms of each U.S. Habitat for Humanity mortgage.

    Habitat for Humanity has helped change the lives of more than 30,000 American families since its first U.S. affiliate was founded in San Antonio, Texas in 1978. Habitat affiliates build in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Each affiliate is an independent, locally managed organization which coordinates local construction and selects partner families without regard to race, religion or ethnic group. Use our affiliate search engine to locate a US Habitat affiliate near you.

    That is great information;

    There is a problem though,

    The implementation of action verse printing upon paper...


    For example many people believe in the Constitution only and not the Amendmentz....

    It took forever " I mean lol it is still action in progrezz";

    It would seem that "emergency" meanz have the operation completed before the ink is dry...

    Is this the progress speed that can be seen, or anywere close to it?

    Brother Light, no disrespect intended here. I'm just speaking frankly...

    You asked for information; and I tried to provide some pertinent data relating to your topic that could possibly be a "springboard" for you to dig further.

    However, as to "the implementation of action versus printing upon paper," that move is up to YOU.

    According to your stated concerns here, what, if any, of this "printing upon paper" could be constructively "implemented into action?"

    And all I meant was for you to use whatever available information/resources to disseminate to the very people you're concerned about.


    ...the very people who are suffering from the inequities in your "compare/contrast."

    The big question is;

    Why are people paying taxes with out representation???

    As well as paying taxes with out receiving the same benefitz as other citizenz???

    Is it possible the old rule of the original constitution that still secretly standz???

    In other wordz being considered to pay full taxes while only considered to be

    50% of a person; but the ideal is only recognized when dealing in financial issuez???
