  2. Election coming so everything is made rosy. How in the world does paying your electric bill become a chore? The little that people earn is either taxed out of their pockets while they a being overcharged and underserved. I am going to write to Human Rights Watch about this. Almost everything under this administration is outrageous. God help our people especially the 50% jobless youth.
