RE: Fwd: TRIBUTE to America - song & words "God Bless the USA"
This was uncalled for and you owe Alyssa an apology.
My husband was also unemployed for several years. I live in a
defferent state than Alyssa. We do NOT blame his unemployment on
the President. However, since OH has one of the highest unemployment
rates in the country and has had for the past 10 years there's an
obvious problem with the economy here and the president is
supposed to deal with the economy. (NOTE: There were several
presidents and both political parties represented during this period.)
As for leaving the state, my husband thought it was more important
to stay and care for his wife and minor children than to go take some
min. wage job in VA. Personally, I'd rather have him here. He is more
than just a walking wallet to our family.
