She advertises services on cragslist for free. She doesn't have the internet and uses the public library for the internet. Chances are EVERYONE has a vacuum cleaner and cleaning supplies. There are many other businesses one can start with little/no money. Home Cleaning/Landscape/ Lawncare/Pressure Washing/Pet Walking/Washing Cars/etc. Like I said it requires an individual to get up off their buttocks and stop waiting for a handout.
This is slightly off topic but if you put this exact post in the NC unemployment benefits thread you'd get run off Citi Data. I agree with you in part because this world is full of people who simply won't (not can't, but won't) help themselves.

I haven't been keeping up with this thread but I like your post as it pertains to life in general, just thought I'd demonstrate the irony of your post here and how it would contrast (and get some very harsh criticism) if you posted it in that other thread I mentioned.

Just about any place you choose to live comes with a risk. Floods, hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, blizzards...etc.
You weight the risks and deal with them accordingly. I feel bad for anyone who loses their home due to an event such as that but on the same token, one must try to prepare for it.
Where I live, I prepare for what may come.
