This "freeloader" got her home through the death of her father. I would guess that no one posting here knows anything about this woman, yet she is labeled a freeloader. At least this is a house AHIP has brought back to provide a home, unlike the eyesores so far on Rio Road. I am very glad Ms. Hawkens is getting to live in her father's house. Lots of money is being handed out that is just pure pork, but when someone gets a home, I cannot feel that money is wasted.

Why criticize her personally? That seems just plain mean to me. Criticize the insanity of these programs and a society that promotes feelgood recognition for those who are given handouts. The idea that handouts have gotten her recognized as "Homeowner of the Year" is sheer lunacy. Can I get an award too? I am finding it tough to make my mortgage payments after my wife lost her income, but I am doing it. At the same time I would LOVE a new deck and maybe a nice garage. An award would be nice too, something to put on the mantle. Wait, I need a mantle - can I get one of those too? More Obamanomics at work people. Wake up, America! We became what we are through hard work, not through handouts, although i suppose one could make the case for the opposite too.
