From a lady:
Hi DML. This is the first time I have written you. Tonight’s episode of The Truth was so powerful that I had to respond. Harlan was describing my life in the ‘Harlan on the Hill’ segment. I am glad to find out it is not just us. My fiancé and I have been together for 18 years. Before the recession hit we had normal middle class lives. We both held jobs that got hit hard by the recession. He is a carpenter and I am a real estate paralegal. In our lives, the recession has not ended. We now live check to check. We have $0 for savings or retirement. We used to go on a vacation once a year. We have not gone on even an overnight trip since 2008. We each drive a car that is barely working. And we are not sitting home collecting welfare. We work very hard. But it’s not enough. I ask myself every day if it will be like this forever now. It is so stressful. I believe if we had some money – our lives as they were prior to the recession we would be married. I am afraid to go down that road right now. We are not young- early 50’s. We have grown children from previous marriages. I hide our situation from our children. I don’t think our children know how bad it is. We both voted for Trump and hope he can get this country back on track again. I am sorry for rambling on so much but as I said I was surprised by the numbers tonight because I did not realize how many people are in the same boat. I have watched you since the beginning and am thankful for the honest news. You have no idea how much your talks calmed me during election season. I have not been able to contribute yet but hope to soon. If you publish any of my email please do not use my name. I feel very embarrassed by my financial situation. Thank you again.
DML: Listen to ME!!! One, do not send me a donation. Just hit the share button when you can, and if that’s not an option, visit this website whenever you can as it helps us grow. Two, never apologize or be ashamed for struggling. It is not your fault your tax money goes to pay for things you didn’t sign up for. The American worker, the American family, the American way of life has been brutally beaten down by D.C. If Trump does not get it back on track, I will in 2024. You stick in there and I wish you and your loved ones all the best. Stay strong.
I worked 20 years in NYS Family Court & another 15 years as an outreach Case Manager working with pregnant & parenting teens. This breakdown of the family has been going on for a long time. What do I attribute it to – people are more afraid of the responsibility of marriage than the responsibility of raising children. This is faulty logic as far as I’m concerned but this is what every single one of them have told me. The real responsibility is raising kids. They’ve seen their parents divorce or there just wasn’t a father in their lives. Absentee Dad just doesn’t cut it. This becomes intergenerational very quickly. It’s a way of life for them, unfortunately. Kids do much better in 2 parent homes provided there isn’t dysfunction or a lot of discord. They hit a bump in the road & they quit – they want out. It’s easier to get out if you don’t get married in the first place. A very sad state of affairs which is destroying the family as we know it. 😢 Anita – so glad to be retired now, lol.
DML: Enjoy that retirement, you earned it!
What is your opinion on the cornerstone of Fox News for 20 yrs being fired? It’s unbelievable & concerning as many feel this is the beginning of dismantling of FNC, which has kept this country floating, providing truth & balance?
DML: Fox News treats people like sh*t. And I’m going to unleash on them tonight on “The Truth.”
