Inspection- That's Not "Health Care"

the richest people

I sometimes feel that the richest want to return to the past. There were the kings, their royal family, dukes lords, and their serfs (slaves) In trying to kill the middle class, not help the least among us, I really feel that those are the days that they want to return to.

Ron Paul Wants Delegates at the Republican Straw Poll

A few days ago, Ron Paul came to town. I motored downtown to attend his event. As I walked into the venue, I thought, "Damn! I forgot to bring my camera!" OK! I didn't get a picture of him.

Allowing Bush tax cuts for the "rich" to expire is a very bad idea

Allowing Bush tax cuts for the "rich" to expire is a very bad idea. My reason is actually very simple because it will be a tax hike for the middle class.

I can't get food stamps because I don't have a job??

So, I am a college student who receives barley enough financial aid to cover for my living and schooling. It is summer now and I could not find a summer job STILL, because I live in Missoula MT. Anyway, I was denied for SNAP benifets because I don't work a minimum of 20 hours a week or do work study program which requires FAFSA to be completed in Febuary. Unfortunately even though I havent lived with my parents in years, I cannot complete FAFSA without their tax info.

Mitch McConnell Mouth Brain Disconnection

It's people like Mitch McConnell that give Human Beings a bad name. The word JERK must have been coined just for him.

A BIG thanks to Martin Bashir for bringing this information our way so we can see McConnell's manipulation of the truth for ourselves and for telling this JERK that he should seek help.
