I just wish the federal government and the insurance companies would be fair in their settlement.

But get reticule, for the so call help you get from your government, but we as American is willing to send billion of dollars to other country, to help them out. This so disappointed to me.

I have just as much respect for Mr. Gray, www.superonsalemall.com cheap jordan sneakers his blue shirt, his silver Rolls Royce, his FEMA trailer, and his rubbled surroundings. But I sure don hear (or read) any ridicule or resentment towards him. What the difference? Please don start with the “It how they make their money” thing. We all heard that enough already. I just love gutsy, hard working, positive, forward looking people like these two. My best to all in the region! cheap Air max shoes

cheap jordans online Hey Mary, get a grip. and the gulf coast area that sit on their duff and collect $$ from the government. It just so sad that somehow the media always seems to find them, interview them and in return the rest of us (who go to work everyday) have to live with the stigma that we too are lazy and ignorant, simply because we happen to live in this region. So, if you do work and you are not milking the system, what are your painties all in a wad about?? Somewhere you and your lamb are carrying some festering guilt about something cheap jordans online.
