    Been trying to buy a bed for months now .

    Been busy bailing other people (family) out.

    At least I can help them ,I hope if I ever need it the favor is returned.

    Yep. Hope things turn around for you bro. A friend of mine has resorted to slinging weed. I highly advised him against it and hope he heeds my words, but in desperate times people do desperate things.

    Hang in there, you still have family, friends and your health. You are indeed rich.

    The new health care plan is not a walk in the park either. They took 25% of my kids last check.

    RICH INDEED!!! I have all I need in my family and...more importantly, my Father.

    Just so frustrating. In 2008 and before, it was only my income and we did well. Now, even with my lady working...nearly impossible.

    The economy is much better than in past years, but people will still buy it and be abused.
