Just A Little Story
First let me say this....I do believe that when one has children child support must and should be paid for obvious reasons. However when one can ill afford to pay and spends life living far below poverty level and often living on the streets often hungry, cold and shelter less some consideration should be shown. This being my past situation. I did manage to stay alive and from time to time live in a house and have a job that got me by and sometimes I lived for spells with friends.
So now here I am with a little income still below poverty level and keeping my head just above water and having $500.00 a month taken from SS which leaves me with less than $700.00 ea month. O.K. I did not cry about it even though it is past due debt....no current support obligation.
Now the Commonwealth of Massachusetts decided that this is not good enough....there plan now is to seize all that I have without limitations (as if I have something)....this includes my motor vehicles....79 motor coach which I paid $400.00 for making payments to a friend 2 years ago.....this will be a real treasure for them to have I am sure.....a 94 Ford F-150 which I still pay on and not so sure they can take that, BUT, whatever....outside of this el-cheapo computer and a small color TV that was given to me some time ago I have nothing of any value except what you might pick up at a yard sale. They are also going to increase what they already take from my SS another 25%.... Additionally they are adding interest forever until paid which substantially increases the debt.
Additionally they are going to intercept any and all monies that I may receive from any other source and keep that full amount (no point in trying to work anywhere to stay above water even if I felt a lot better than I do). I will never be allowed to have a passport (ha...as if that mattered).... my drivers license and/or any other license will be suspended as well as the registration of the motor vehicles and prevention of renewal. Montana will co-operate with Massachusetts as by law.
Also they may now turn the debt over to a private collection agency for collection and also they state that all this will be reported to the credit bureau just to ruin my credit standing...as if I had any to start out with........ Of course....its all good. If I had had money over the years and just would not pay....I could see this action and some of the fault IS mine....I was devastated over my unwilling divorce (on my part) and gave up on life and women in general and did some fair amount of roaming....have I recovered....not really as I often think of her....I have not been given to womanize or whore around for all these years either....not lead the "GOOD LIFE" that people seem to believe a dead beat dad does.
The end result of this of course is that I will drive without a license and somehow mange to have a vehicle, legally registered or not and before this is fully over as I can no longer manage an actual residence I will live from a vehicle...naturally and of course SSI rules that in order to receive continued payments you must have an address that you can be reached at, at all times, else no payments...so that will end that when they discover this fact. Now should I manage to somehow come up with an address to use I will probably get arrested a number of times for driving and you can't get payments while in Jail.
The point is....how crazy is this....it will soon wind up that I will receive no payments and neither will they...I now can not even get direct deposit as they are seizing my bank account of which I only use for SSI as I have no other source of income and try to get a job at my age especially here in this area.
I am not crying for me....this has happened to many others and no one has cared....no one cares about ills of others until an ill of society happens to them. It's just that way. Great society.
What right can I dare to claim over such a small matter compared to the larger ills like that inflicted on the Indian Nation all of which I consider my family....compared to the ills of my black skinned family and the treatment inflicted also on these people and what right do I have to cry for such a small ill compared to the numerous ills inflicted on people all over the world. Look what was done to those of other races during past world wars and living here in this country. Stripped of all possessions and incarcerated.
No I am not sorry for myself and wish no one to be sorry for me. It is what it is and the days are coming when all will be righted and man will pay for all these ills and more, for our Creator sees all. Even at that time I will cry for even those that suffer. It is only Gods law that needed to be obeyed and not laws as man sees fit to build in an unjust society on....Those in POWER will answer to the HIGHER and REAL POWER in spite of what they believe and no matter how many times they go to church and claim their self righteousness.
All this will do them no good....here in society when a law is broken one finds that ignorance of the law is no excuse....so shall it be in the end....ignorance of Gods laws will not be an acceptable defense....live by mans laws and then die by that very same law.
Thank you for listening....you need not comment....whatever you got from this I can only hope that good comes of it and for those of you that hold ill will toward me after reading this....then so be it. Man can inflict much but generally speaking he can't cook you and eat you. (At least not yet in this country) Much love to you my Brothers and sisters all.
