I guess years of people taking advantage of other people's generosity has taken its toll. I have watched for years as the parasites drove their luxury cars from WIC, to Toys for Tots, to the Salvation Army, to anywhere else where free gifts were being handed out.

It truly breaks my heart that there are children who will not get anything this year because of the greed of others.

it's really sad when it comes down to some families losing out. I totally with LLR , there is lots of cheating in the lines. They do ask for id I guess, but some of these people live 2 families to an apartment and have sleep-in boyfrinds on the side. I actually heard housing cops one night on my scanner looking for a certain pick-up truck around O'Brien Terrace because someone had called and said the woman had a live-in. Sounded like they had been checking several nights in a row and he kept parking different places. There are families out there that really need the help and then there are the dirtbags that cheat the system generation after generation.

My in-laws are of this despicable subset of our society, both gainfully employed, three kids, two new cars, all the toys an adult and children could want, yet they beg to the gov. and various charities to subsidize their fully irresponible lifestyle.
Just emerging from banckrupcty they feed off the public teet without remorse.

And what a coincidence, the're both Obama-zombies.

Today, I must go break bread with these parasites on this day of Thanks Giving.... may I find the strenght to not verbally eviscerate these cretins for what they are.

I would personally like to thank Santa Globe as they have helped me in the past years, As i am a single mother of 5 children, and unemployed at that.and was hoping for some help this year.It is a tough time out there for many families,such as my self,and when i received a letter from Globe Santa stating that they are not serving the Merrimack valley area, I was in shock. But what can they do, the economy is so bad right now! And with unemployment not extending benefits,"Word's cannot Describe".Thank god for these wonderful charities,helping families in this time of need,without them, my children would not be having a Christmas this year! So Thankyou very Much! And Happy holidays to all!
