Skip to comments.Sharon in her Section 8 home!

Sharon Jasper has spent 57 of her 58 years dedicated to one cause and one cause only, and has nothing to show for her dedicated servitude...
She has lived in Section 8 housing all but 1 of her 58 years. It was a legacy passed down from her parents who moved into Section 8 housing in 1949 when she was six months old.. She has passed the legacy down to her children, but fears they may have to get jobs to pay for the utilities and deposits.
She laments about her one year hiatus from the comfort of her Section 8 nirvana, 'I tried it for a year -- you know, working and all.. It's not anything I would want to go through again, or wish on anyone in my family, but I am damn proud of that year.'

Yep, and there is tons of them. If we continue to enable they will continue to take advantage.
“Just because you pay for my house, my car, my big screen and my food, I will not be treated like a slave!’ and ‘Back up and Shut up! Shut up, white boy! Shut up, white boy!”
It’s funny how every problem in the WORLD is somehow the fault of WHITE MALES.
She better call up Obummer to give her some more of his stash
Is this satire?
You mean our Stash
I’m barely able to tolerate them. I do not go grocery shopping the first weekend of any month. Bad for the blood pressure.
Mmmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmm
Nope, verified via Snopes. If you visit the article and at the bottom you will see the Snopes link.
That article has got to be from the Onion, right??? No one would behave in this manner... complaining about their free entitlements?
Nope not from Onion. Verified via Snopes. Snopes verification at the bottom of the article on MFP
47% of the residents of New Orleans cannot read or write.
No-one mentioned that FEMA was delayed terribly because people could not read simple instructions or fill out paper work to claim free stuff.
It was George Bush and WHITEY's fault exclusively.
It's time to dust off Atlas Shrugged and make it required reading for our kids...
They are so stupid. If it was up to them they would kill all the White people and cut off their free meals doing so.
That video is a showcase of community organizer thuggery. My father left New Orleans for Buenos Aires several years ago and has not looked back.
Yes. Time to deprive the corrupt system of our talent and assets. A total collapse of Funding for all Federal Programs is the only way to end it. We can rebuild after the Carnage.
Why should people have to pay for those who won’t do anything for themselves?
...and barely had to work a day in her life.
Time to kill all entitlements and let the chips fall where they may. Slash 90% of gov't jobs. Slash all foreign aid. Slash all welfare.
here’s a link to the lovely wanted for mass murder t-shirt:
They are outmanned and out gunned. To many in that community think they are Mike Tyson.
I guess we’ll be paying for their Obamacare. I don’t think they will be locked up for not opting into health insurance.
I’m a white male; they haven’t seen problems yet.
I used to rent section 8, I can tell you first hand, the lifers (and you could tell them within 5 minutes of less of meeting them) had far better toys and living conditions that I personally have.
We are paying for our own destruction.
Never trust a verification listed in an article or in an email. If you are not sure go to snopes or urbanlegends.com and self verify. A tagline at the end that says “I verified this from snopes and here’s what they said...” is a sure thing indicator that it is all fake. (but I can’t open the aticle so I will try later from home).
It’d be a danged shame if something bad were to happen to that section 8 housing unit. Just sayin’...
Before I buy a house, I always look for section 8 houses and stay far, far, away. Even a cheaper neighborhood is off limits because the landlord will eventually turn it into Section 8. There is no way to stop it. The section 8’ers I know shop constantly and eat out at Chili’s and other chains. They are almost all obese too.
Make it all into an SSD program. If you pay a certain amount in, you get a certain amount per month. I’m on it right now and I put in enough to recieve $770.00 a month and Medicaid. Mind you, I paid into it, so I’m not some mooch.
If you haven’t paid into the system, you don’t get a penny.
War is hard work. You can expect someone who is too lazy to get up every day for a job to be far, far too lazy to prosecute a successful revolution.
Guess who is known for hard work? Here’s a hint...they aren’t on the side of the leftists. Hehehe.
Sorry for the dup.
Okay.... Checked it a little more. Snopes says the big screen tv is real, but some of the commentary is satire. Snopes lists it as multiple sources.
There is a provision for those who can’t afford it. That’s why they will have access to our bank accounts.
I read this three times and still don't know what to say...(shaking head)
I thought Henry Cisneros started Section 8 during the Clinton administration...
Gee, that's great.
Regardless of what Sharon’s situation is. I am sure there is plenty of people who live their life in this manner.
I thought you were red.
[muffled murfer-murfer you hear is my giggling]
Sharon Jasper is leading the former tenants of St. Bernard Development in their campaign to return to the homes from which they were displaced.
Tom O'Malley, left, of the AFL-CIO's Gulf Coast Revitalization Program, is helping former public housing tenants try to reclaim their homes.
Sharon Jasper: Mobilizing tenants for the right of return
Its another white hot New Orleans afternoon and Sharon Jasper is throwing off some heat of her own.
The 58-year-old Jaspers voice rises and falls with a biblical fervor as she stands outside a 75-year-old public housing project called the St. Bernard Housing Development.
I am a former resident of St. Bernard. My mother and father moved here in 1949, when I was 6 months old, she says, pointing to a row of solidly constructed brick homes and neatly manicured lawns.
When Katrina struck and the levees broke, Jasper and thousands of public housing dwellers were herded like cattle throughout Louisiana and neighboring states. Now they want their homes back.
But the politicians, the government agencies and the developers have other ideas. They want to demolish St. Bernard as part of a vast redevelopment vision that includes a PGA golf course but no affordable housing.
So the politicians, the government agencies and the developers have surrounded St. Bernard with a chain link fence topped by barbed-wire. And theyve told hard-working, God-fearing people like Sharon Jasper to stay the hell out.
Our families have been displaced all over the United States. Bring them back, then lets talk about redevelopment, Jasper argues.
Jasper is fighting back. She spearheads a tenant association that is working with the AFL-CIOs Gulf Coast Revitalization Program to convince local authorities to rehabilitate rather than annihilate public housing stock.
We, the poor working class, are the people who helped build this city, Jasper says, jabbing her finger into the air, as if she were about to pull down the menacing barbed wire barrier. We have a right to return. This is our home.
They obviously aren’t lacking for food.
