There is something that bothers me, since I am old enough to have lived in the period of the Great Depression. President Roosevelt formed what was called the CCC, which at the time took me off the streets with one pair of pants, shoes cushioned with cardboard, no car, no money. The CCC gave me clothes, a bed, good food, medical care and a roof over my head. They provided all of this for labor I provided for them.
Now we have a "so-called" president named Barack Obama who lives in a beautiful house with hired help, the best food and clothing, a special plane to go on when he chooses, which costs us taxpayers a lot of money to buy and maintain. Now how can a man get up before large crowds of Americans and say this country is in good hands when I read in the news that people don't have, or can't find, employment, no house to live in, and are going without food, starving in a great country like America.
We need a definite change of leadership in our so-called land of liberty and justice for all.
