It is truly a shame that if there is someone you love, laying alone and sick, and they are waiting for you to come to visit, it is almost impossible. Why? Because parking could and sometimes does keep people away because it cost to much.
I was on the phone with a friend and we were talking about another friend of ours who is really sick and in the hospital. She was telling me that she actually parked near where our friend lives and takes a cab from there and it costs almost half of what it would be if she were to park in the hospital parking lot. It can cost up to $22.00 for being there more than 3 hours.
Now that is SICK! How can an institution charge for parking that way? What is a family to do if their child is laying there waiting for mom and dad and big sister and they can’t visit because of parking. I know they grab a bus or a train for $2 or $3 dollars and they leave sis home cause they can’t really pay for her either.
I know that sound extreme, but it make me mad because I’m on a fixed income, gas is expensive and now I have to worry that I can’t see my friend because of not affording the parking.
I know of other hospitals that are parking free and the hospital has not fallen apart. All hospitals are feeling the crunch, but they see that people come first not the pocket-book.
I found in my email something that mad me angry. Unfortunately, not sure if I was angry at myself because so many people tried to tell me I was putting my faith in the wrong person (President Obama), and/or angry at President Obama for apparently speaking out of both sides of his mouth, or as my people would say “Speaks with forked tongue”.
At the bottom. I will be adding a link which will take you to Diane Sawyer of ABC news speaking about bridges being constructed by Chinese companies and workers.
At a time when the United States needs jobs, needs manufacturing, needs to get back on its feet, needs to believe in its president when he said, “Yes We Can; I guess “We Can’t”.
Okay go check out the link and then tell me if I’m wrong to be angry, tell me if I’m wrong to feel cheated. Is it that so many people are making decisions behind his back that he has no knowledge of any of this? I find that hard to believe.
Let me know what you think!

Hi, my name is Teresa Rothove, and I decided that this blog will be a way to voice my opinions on various topics whether they are good or bad.
There are so many things going on in the world that we just don’t understand. Cruelty, terrorism, victimization, dehumanization, and let us not leave out our four-legged creatures who too are tortured every day.
There may be times when I might touch on a subject that will make you laugh, cry, or make you angry. With all the injustices in the world for humans and animals it makes you wonder who are we, what are we.
I guess this blog is a place where I will probably rant and rave about the good, the bad, the ugly.
So until next time, grab a cup coffee and I’ll see you later.
