This suffering is so unnecessary. No woman should have to go through it just to support a convicted felon here, or in any country.
When I got back to the shed it was a wonderful 75 degree's outside, sunny, blue skies.. a simply gorgeous day. I managed to get a 75 lb tack box loaded into the truck, and several heavy boxes containing books.. then both my spine and arms gave out.
I couldn't even lift light boxes.
I thought that if I took an hour break I would feel better but instead of being rested and ready to go I was staved up feeling worse. This is not a task for an older woman with Bassel-Hagens disease, this is a young person's game. But the reality is, this shouldn't be acceptable.
By 5 pm I had managed to pack more boxes and get the boxes loaded, but I must have looked like a sight. Dirty, filthy, barely even able to walk. I don't drink alcohol but I must have looked like I was trying to recover from a 3 day drinking binge under a bridge .
I really feel my age plus some.
Why Are Criminals Getting Breaks And Good Law Abiding Citizens Being Discriminated Against?
When did our society become so twisted? It has become apparent these days that if you are a law abiding person you might not get a fair shake. For many years now I have had to ask myself, "What's going on?"
The criminals in prison have work out areas, a chance for a free education, and we have a difficult time affording these luxuries as regular civilians.
It has evolved into a matter of respectable, American, hard working citizens, can't catch a brake. Our jobs are being shipped overseas and if you are close to retirement you find yourself being let go from your job. For a made up reason, that legally is binding in the company's small print.
I know many people who have to work two or three jobs just to make the ends meet and feed their families. If wages were higher, this would not be a problem. Then you might only have to work two jobs and be able to see the family you are working so hard for.
It does not matter the color of your skin, or what country you are from originally, nor if you are a man or a woman. We are living in a day of difficulty and prejudice against the regular, hard working, American citizen.
There are too many people breaking laws in our country and getting by with it. Suddenly, if you are just a person who is minding your own business, and standing up for your rights, jobs, beliefs, political views, you are coined as bad by media and others. It is so stupid and redundant. Grandma's and grandpa's, clergy, women and children, farmers, businessmen and women, rich, poor, and in between, being made feel that they have no rights in their own country.
We are living in the 21st century, and certain folks are acting as if they want to take us into the dark ages in this country. Where only certain folk have rights, and jobs are for a certain chosen few. It is biblical to work, and most everyone that I know want to have a decent job and raise their families in that good old American way.
When laws are set in motion to help a small stream of Americans, and jobs are created for the ones who have a certain skill, and industry is ignored as a whole, it is discrimination.
When criminals are given breaks because it is politically correct, and we all stand around with our mouths wide open, we have been discriminated against.
We have a whole new kind of discrimination in our country today. It is politically correct versus not being politically correct. This is new territory and I do not think many are coming to grips with it. I think that is why we have all of the hoop-la, and ranting going on.
I am a woman and an American citizen, and I wrote this as I see things in our country. You can agree or disagree with my ideas, it is still a free country to do so on this day.

I don't believe I have EVER witnessed any none violent crime that can be as devastating as stealing someone's home. I am walking in Dorothy McKeevers footsteps, day by day, month by month, year by year.
Liam Griffin, I sat in your law office with two witnesses as you gave me your promise, your guarantee, that our money would be returned before harm came to us.
Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins you were present the day I signed contract with your son. You walked out of the kitchen with Sylve Huckins and your son introduced me to you. He told you that I was the British horse trainer he had told you about, the one he was going to build the home and barn for. Why didn't you say something? There may be a rational and reasonable explanation but I have spent over 3 years, homeless, not understanding it. I understand it even less knowing that though I was a total stranger, both Dorothy McKeever and Sally Canning you KNEW, and you knew what your son had done to them and others.
Dr. Kenneth Ogilvie, I contacted you and simply asked for a reference, not knowing that Robert Huckins was your cousin. Robert Huckins had just stolen over $30,000 from the domestic violence shelter, HEAL, yet everyone was trying to hide it. There was a history of stealing large amounts of money. $65,000 PLUS from Nancy Canning. $89,000 PLUS from Dorothy McKeever, $45,000 from Francis McKinney. The list just goes on and on and on.
Because of Robert Huckins I ended up paying $140,000 to be homeless.. sat in the cold, emotionally, physically and financially broke. In the middle of a recession, with no way to recover the stolen funds.
Today Robert Huckins has his own home...
He also has OUR home.....
He also has a lot of people's money...
And his freedom.
Women are not banks or loan institutions. Women should not be the source of a retirement fund for people who don't want to do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. Holding women hostage while playing with the judicial system, a horrendous game of cat and mouse extending YEARS, with the victims whose very homes, families and stability are in jeopardy is cruelty, as cruel as a physical beating. It is financial and emotional RAPE. Homelessness is not justice. It is a slow, painful death.
Please, I beg with everything I have within me, please convince Robert Huckins to stop this torture and return the building fund he stole from us so we too, can have a home.
