There is all kinds of assistance already out there for the single mothers that you speak of, and they take full advantage of it. I've heard of single mothers getting so much financial aid to go back to school that they have money left over. Then they drop out because hey, they didn't have to pay for it. Single moms who get so much EITC on their tax returns that they can go out and get…

Never heard of such a thing. Cities and counties along with townships submit their request, then CMS uses that total for their RFP. If a supplier cannot meet that total then I would guess some could be left off the RFP total, but have never heard of that. The other comment states " bids range from $70 to $140 per ton" so why is Quincy paying $95 per ton? Still I have never heard of CMS cutting off…

Strawman: Is He REALLY Mad as Hell?

2 months, 1 week ago by Strawman

I don’t know about you but I’m feeling a whole lot better about the most recent developments on the Veteran’s Administration debacle now that Barack Obama is aware we have problems in that department.  I was SO relieved that the president said, “He was mad as hell and would get to the bottom of it,” AGAIN.  Why, the president actually sent a senior staff member to Arizona to help the V.A. get their act together.  That ONE GUY is going to make a difference!  And once he’s done we’ll get the usual, “it’s been investigated, nothing to see here” rhetoric that comes as standard equipment.  Count on it.   

The video montage shows that when the droppings hit the fan, Obama reaches into his usual bag of recycled responses and we end up getting more of what we’ve been getting from the president for years; lies.  

The list of the Obama scandals is as long as the Affordable Care Act and it's getting longer each day.  The pandering to the special interests while, at the same time, ignoring veterans and those still on active duty is unacceptable and un-called for.  Do you now understand why I’ve called the Obama administration the “get-even-with-Whitey” group for years here?  Is some of this starting to sink in?

It’s my hope that with Memorial Day coming up and the Fishing for Freedom event just around the bend, each of us take some time to pay homage to those who have served our great country.  Please do so while there’s still time—and while we’re still allowed to.

And if, by chance, you are not mad as hell about what this administration has done to our veterans, and our country then my heart goes out to you.  My fear is that you’ll wake up long after it’s too late to do something about it.
