Dear Ricardog
          My Friend came to me after reading my story on AidPage, She is one of many, I realize how lacking Dental Care is for Many many people. Even with insurance Dental care is very limited, Where if Insurance company would cover Dental Care it would save Millions in the Health care System, With out teeth or teeth problems is a open door to infections coming septic, Heart Disease, Not to even speak of how difficult it is too eat healthy, Not mention how it effects People self esteem. For are smile, is the first thing that most people notice, Sadly people Judge as associate, thinking that they must be drug addicts, don't take care of them self, It is very very difficult, I lost my teeth due to bone infection, My friend lost her teeth from a physically Abusive relationship, Another mane lost his teeth due to an accident at work,  another was honest and admitted she lost her teeth to Drug addiction, She has now changed  life and been sober  for
5 years. The list and the story go on,
The name of the group that is so selfless and give of there services to Domestic Violence must be Physical   not emotional
I had found out about the group and passed it on and To everyone that bashes Densities or Oral Surgeons. They can't anymore. While I was turned down because mine is much more involved and is related to bone infection, They did accept my friend, They are very giving and Caring on the same token don't think you can lie and say you lost your teeth  due to domestic Violence they are very very Good and check everything and you must have proof and be away from your abuser and on your feet for year is called To all  who are in pain and suffering from losing there smile, Remember that all things will come in Good time. Beliefs I know ho hard it is , I know this how much Look at change of my face I see every day, Someday I will have my smile back. and I just want my own face back, It will happen, But it is Important that I look at all the life lesson I have been blessed with.

go  modest needs. It is a really cool group, You see. Say I need a loan for 1,000 I am giving you an example of how it works,  They dont worry about credit, You write a brief note saying why you need,

Then say Bob say he will loan you $ 50.00 and Sally will loan you a 100. 00 and peter willl give you 25,00 and so on Until you get you loan amount goal., Then They  will contact you and you will pay back you loan to one place and they will pay Bob , Sally and who ever helped you.

            Good luck

Dear Friends On Aid Page
         Great news. For all the people that  think Miracles and good thing don't happen on Aid Page, I have a friend that was able to get her teeth fixed. For free. From a group , That  help People of Domestic Violence and are out of the relationship at least a year and prove that there teeth were damaged by domestic Violence, there are private dental care professional that help. 
    Because my teeth are do to a health problem and over 11 grand I do not qualify , But that okay, Because now one Friend who lost her smile now has it back. See when you share information it may not be your time but you may Change someone  life Forever. What a gift.

I keep reading the same theme of economic survival that repeats itself here on Aidpage. I am not an alarmist, but I believe the American people should embrace the Boy Scout motto rather than  the Chicken Little response regarding the coming economic collapse.

My post, Expediant Survival Tips, should remind people that our government has shown in the past that it cannot protect American citizens. I urge people to stop using credit cards and start using the barter system, in which case such is found in Craig's List or needing to start here at Aidpage.

Whatever happens in the following weeks will decide the course of American history, in which case I hope that all things political will resolve itself peacefully. I say that because everyday I see our civil liberties disappearing or becoming suppressed for keeping the status quo in politics, such as the police response at the RNC here in St. Paul.

  I have noticed there are quite a few families out there either pregnant or with newborns stuggling( I know what it's like).  I don't have much to offer but I do have some clothes for infant girl from 0 -6 months.  About 2 stop and shop bags full of onesies, dresses and other stuff.  I have no money or means to ship them but I live in the Tiverton R.I. area if interested.  They are used but are like new.  No stains or rips.  I would rather see someone in need benefit from them rather than giving them to consignment.  They are really cute and you can't beat FREE!

Elaine of TSA forwarded the Birk Plan that bears repeating:

The Birk Economic Recovery Plan (Talk about thinking out of the box)

Hi Pals,


I’m against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.


Instead, I’m in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in

a We Deserve It Dividend.


To make the math simple, let’s assume there are 200,000,000

bona-fide U.S. Citizens 18+.


Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman

and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up.. 

So divide 200 million adults 18+  into $85 billion that equals $425 (corection by Emil).


My plan i s to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a

We Deserve It Dividend.


Of course, it would NOT be tax free.

So let’s assume a tax rate of 30%.


0AEvery individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes.

That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.


But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.

A husband and wife has $595,000.00.


What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?

Pay off your mortgage – housing crisis solved.

Repay college loans – what a great boost to new grads

Put away money for college – it’ll be there

Save in a bank – create money to loan to entrepreneurs.

Buy a new car – create jobs

Invest in the market – capital drives growth

Pay for your parent’s medical insurance – health care improves

Enable Dead beat Dads to come clean – or else


Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+  including the folks

who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers
and every other company

that is cutting back. And of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.


If we’re going to re-distribute wealth let’s really do it...instead of trickling out

a puny $1000.00 ( “vote buy” ) economic incentive that is being proposed by one of our candidates for President.


If we’re going to d o an $85 billion bailout, let’s bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!


As for AIG – liquidate it.

Sell off its parts.

Let American General go back to being American General.

Sell off the real estate.

Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.


Here’s my rationale. We deserve it and AIG doesn’t.


Sure it’s a crazy idea that can “never work.”


But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party

How do you spell Economic Boom?


I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion

We Deserve It Dividend more than I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC .


And remember, The Birk plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned

instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.


Ahhh...I feel so much better getting that off my chest. Kindest personal regards, 
T. J. Birkenmeier, A Creative Guy & Citizen of the Republic

PS: Feel free to pass this along to your pals as it’s either good for a laugh or a tear or a very sobering thought on how to best use $85 Billion!!

hi kat57 my name is vetsy how are you? i only want to say that you are a very brave woman. my mom has dementia and she is in her 70's i've never heard of any one getting it at your age. that's pretty scary. i am 57 years old and i could get dementia also. i don't know alot about the desease but would like to learn. my mom is in the middle stages of the desease now she is starting to not remember the short term things. she remembers some of the long term thingsa but is getting to forget alot about her past. it's good you still are using your brain to think. this might help you a little bit. the doctors told me and my siblings to start using our opposit hands this makes our brains think all over again. it's like teaching a bay new things. it really works. good luck to you and god bless you too.

piper4ever, have you called the electric company to finf out if they do rearage payments? if you can do this they can't shut you off. it would be worth the trying. as far as the bills coming in each month i know that feeling. i thought we were the only people in my neighborhood that was doing bad but, my neighbor told us him and his wife are struggling to meet their bills every month, and they both have good paying jobs!!! you are not alone with this. please let me know what happens



Talk to vesty

I am a grandmother helping raise my 4 teenage grandchildren.  I need help with bills.  I am the bread winner of this "family" and need some help. Because of my salary the state will not help me even though I qualify for help due to the amount of "people" living in the household.  I am looking for a grant with help to get out of this hole and/or a job I can do part-time from home.  Any ideas?

Talk to piper4ever

Dear Congress:


In my opinion, I am frustrated and disgusted to see that our elective officials sitting in Congress appoint themselves raises while the 80% of us who live in poverty year after year see rising property taxes, lower job opportunities, and a rising corruptive government that puts the “haves” before the “have-nots.”


Why do we need to bail out the super rich for their greed and unethical business practices without any sanctions for their behaviors? Many questions frustrate the American public, in which case I refer to NAFTA, the war, and globalizing the world economy with our tax dollars supporting other nations.


DO NOT bail out the financial markets for their mistakes even if the economy collapses to the point that no one will dare to make the same mistake again. I will make sure other people know your voting record if you do support the bail out of the financial giants like Freddie Mac.


See you at the polls.

Get into the doctor and have them run some blood tests on you.  What you have going on doesn't sound right.

It could be a number things combined, and stress probably doesn't help.... but definitely get checked out to make sure it isn't something serious.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

You send a letter of complaint to your State Attorney General's Office, the Better Business Bureau, and sometimes the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
