I love the city of Garfield Heights, but it appears to be headed downward even more so. The city has been infested with unruly, ignorant acting people.....obviously moved here from Cleveland and they are bringing their ways with them. I know some of you may say it has something to do with race, but I'm just stating the obvious. no police presence either and when you do call them they act as though you're bothering them. I thought about moving but why run from ignorance, parents of these kids, if you do give a rats $#*&, fix your issue at home instead of letting them run wild in the city. just plain ignorant

Keep calling the police no matter how uninvited you feel. Our police are the only way to combat lowlifes. I have instructed all my tenants here in Maple Heights that if they see somebody walking a dog that craps on the lawn, or somebody throwing garbage on my property, to immediately call the cops and have them make the lowlife come back and clean the area.

And to some degree, yes, it is racial since none of these events ever took place when it was a white community.

You are only going to conduct yourself the way you were raised. That's why I think people who move from the city into the burbs should have to take a test or something before they can live here:

WHEN WALKING DOWN A STREET WITH A COLA THAT YOU JUST FINISHED, YOU

A) KEEP THE CAN UNTIL YOU ARIVE HOME AND PROPERLY DISPOSE OF IT
B) THROW THE CAN ONTO A NICELY MANICURED LAWN
C) TRHOW THE CAN INTO THE STREET WHERE A CAR WILL FLATEN IT OUT

I bet we would have less than half of the lowlifes in Maple Heights that we have today. LOL

Yes, that is to my point that government programs should only be used in the inner city. Once somebody proves they can use them and save up their money and be responsible, then they should be able to move out on their own.

The problem is the government is taking people who haven't earned the right to live in a suburb, and then moving them into suburbs. It just isn't fair to the people that earned that right.

How is it fair if you have a $700 mortgage and the person living next to you lives in the city for $200? Not to mention other forms of assistance like help with those high a$$ heating bills.

I know all about it as I had a HUD house next to mine. In the middle of winter, she had her windows open with snow blowing in. She got the apartment on HUD, but frequently left for several weeks to live with her lowlife boyfriend.

My light bill is going on $200-300 in the summer. Do I get help? I hate that some people that should be living on 105 somewhere can go anywhere and pay $20 and have their air on blast, meanwhile I have to pay like I weigh.

If they kept these programs in the hood, I could wouldn't care if they had free electricity and gas. Just keep it down there. Once you become responsible, you have to pay for your shjt.

Honestly, if they want to keep the programs, fine, If I can accept the huge military budget, I can deal with this. Just keep them in the damn hood and trailer parks.

I can understand if a person fall on hard times and needs the programs, but they should be used to allow people to move where they can't afford to live.

What is really a shame is that it only takes 1 bad family out of 5 section 8ers or hud people to ruin it for the whole damn block.

Medicaid went up 58% in the last three years. We are slowly becoming a totally government dependent nation. Working people like myself have a $5,000 deductible and hold off medical care unless it's something urgent, and the lowlifes run to the doctor every time they get a scratch or a cough. But I'm paying for their medical care while I can't get care for myself.

At least your employer kicks in. Try being a business owner and paying for your own insurance. And everybody on medicaid isn't a low life.

Our medical system needs to be revamped. Lawyers need to be reigned in. This shjt wouldn't cost so much if it weren't for lawyers.

On one side you have insurance companies, on the other ambulance chasing lawyers, both sides have hurt our medical system.

Paying out of pocket for simple procedures is crazy. Have you seen the prices? You know how much a simple x-ray costs? An MRI? If this government can provide aid to other countries, they should have medicaid for those that need it.

And how does our government define who needs it? Does a welfare queen with six children need it? Sure she does, because she's a irresponsible person popping out kids like no tomorrow. How about a person who just doesn't want to work? Does he need Medicaid? Sure he does, what choice does he have?

But no matter who needs it, we pay for it. And they get better healthcare coverage than the working. Something is terribly wrong with a system where the working get less care than the non-working.

But since you expressed interest in lawyers, here is a piece in my browser that you might be interested in reading:

And this one is even better:

Speaking of medical insurance companies, the average profit of such companies range between 2% and 7%. The people you purchase your cereal from probably make more money. Medical insurance payments are directly related to medical costs--not insurance profits.

I Don't care about their profit. Why would I? It isn't going in my pocket. Their profit should be of no concern to you as well. I don't fight for big business, I fight for my one self-centered concerns, as should most people.

Look man, taxes aren't going away. They could eliminate half of medicaid tomorrow and the government will find a way to waste our tax dollars. It has been going on like that since ancient times in Egypt where they used to tar the tax collectors.

So if they stop medicaid and just waste your money some other way, will you be happy? Government sure isn't going to let you keep more of your hard earned money, you can forget that.

My taxes pay for a lot of shjt I don't like.

As I have said so many times "When you reward irresponsibility, don't be surprised when you have more irresponsible people."

That's the trend in our country. Do you think the housing collapse happened because we are a nation of responsible people? Hell no. It happened because unworthy credit customers purchased homes they could not afford.

So do tell, who propelled this notion of irresponsibility; the very act of somebody always there to bail you out?

Okay, so let's say you have a minimum wage job at a hardware store. You become ill, but have no benefits to pay for such care. The government won't help because you are a working person. What alternatives do you have?

Our government actually promotes quitting your job before they will offer any kind of help. Once approved, you have full access to medical care that some working Americans cannot get. Is that what you call fair????

If you think that's fair, then you should have no problem with HUD people living in Maple Heights. You should have no problem with them having as many children as they can have, and eating government food until they grow to 300 lbs. You should have no problem with all these daycare centers in our city subsidized by the federal government.

40% of our population is now on food stamps. Over half of our population is supporting the other half since that other half live off the government in some way or form. Only half of our country pays (what's considered) income tax. And then you make a statement like "government will find some other way to waste our money?" That's the problem. The money isn't there, and thats why we are in debt over 14 trillion dollars.

I guess we should let Republicans have their way and eliminate minimum wage. That way that hardware store worker will be making $5/hr and qualify for health care. LOL No need to quit your job when you aren't paid anything.

Do you want to end programs or just make sure they have stricter restrictions? I sure as hell don't want them ended. I could have a stroke or get in a car accident and get f@cked up and may need them.

What we need is stricter regulation of these programs.

I agree. But it's too politicized now to make any changes. All those people back in the 90's that were on welfare were kicked off the program by Newt Gingrich and the Republicans, and report after report showed that people were much happier. In fact, we had a projected surplus because all those people were putting cookies into the cookie jar instead of taking them out. Imagine how successful this country could be if all able bodied people went to work and created tax money. You say you work at home. How many possible working people do you see walking around during the work day? When I drive the highways, I can't believe how many cars are out there. I always wished I could set up a booth--stop all those cars, and ask those people what they do for a living?
