I had a hard time sleeping last night. I had just read some of the responses to my post about lending $1500 to my sister and was hung up on the last one I had read that night. It warned that I was becoming a fountain of money for deadbeat relatives.

I hope you don't take it too much to heart. And I have something to say to all of those who gave you that warning? How many of YOU think the government should not be available to help out people in these situations, that it is the responsibility of the FAMILY to help? Is what I suspected true? That you really don't think ANY helping hand should be extended to people in times of trouble? Shame on you.
