Homeless by Choice

Posted by Dave Blount at February 16, 2009 8:28 AM

Henrietta Hughes, the archetypal Obamunist, was showered with cash and given a free home after she bleated to The Anointed One that she wanted the government to give her a kitchen. Now it turns out that if Henrietta was homeless, it was by choice:

At President Obama's town hall meeting in Fort Myers on Tuesday, Henrietta Hughes stood up and told the President she has been homeless since 2003 and can't find a job.
She also says she's reach a dead end with government assistance and none of the local charity agencies will help.
However, a local organization is coming forward saying Hughes isn't being honest about how much help she's had in the past.
The director of We Care Outreach Ministry, Tanya Johnson, says just last month she offered Henrietta Hughes permanent housing and a place to stay free for three months, but Hughes refused.
"We would have allowed her to stay for the first 90 days, no income. You know free," said Tanya Johnson.
We Care Outreach Ministry is a faith based organization in Fort Myers.
Johnson says she also gave Henrietta and her son Corey, money, food and offered Corey job training courses, but it was refused.
"We have extended a lot of her services to her," Johnson said.

Despite being "homeless" since 2003, Henrietta and her son sold property for $47,000 in 2005.

Yet we're being asked to give up the economic freedom that enabled this country to become what it is so that shuffling herds of Henriettas can be spared from having to look for a job.
