If the only history people learn is what is spoon-fed in public school, they've probably missed out on the part where northern states would capture escaped slaves and send them back to their owners. They've probably missed how northern states that were supposedly "free" wouldn't allow blacks to live within their borders. Everyone wants to turn up their noses at the South, but if you're…

Keep it up people we are setting a precedent and its only as matter of time before the stars and stripes have to be removed/changed due to protest from native Americans, or Al Sharpton (lets be honest the north had slaves just like the south). After that its the Union Jack for centuries of persecution against the scots Irish, and on and on and on. Hell my mere existence as a white male could be offensive…

Ex-congressman Jackson is eligible to receive $8,700 dollars per month in disability pay due to his bipolar condition

From WLS:

August 14, 2013 (WLS) -- The ABC7 I-Team is following the money, from the jewelry, trips and clothing to the celebrity trinkets, all paid for by the Jacksons' "personal slush fund"-- to use the words of Washington's top federal prosecutor. 

The assistant head of the FBI in Washington Wednesday night says of Jesse and Sandi Jackson, "They can hide no more." For years, they hid lavish spending of campaign money, but the I-Team has learned that U.S. officials plan for the government to make money off of some of their purchases, auctioning off some of those Jackson treasures. At the same though, that very same government may also be paying ex-congressman Jackson monthly disability, and later, a pension.

First the pensions, for both Jacksons. They were public employees: his work for the federal government since being elected to Congress in 1995; her work for the City of Chicago since being elected alderman in 2007.

Ex-congressman Jackson is eligible to receive $8,700 dollars per month in disability pay due to his bipolar condition and could receive a partial federal pension of $45,000 per year once he reaches 65.
