Haslam's program is just another entitlement. There are plenty of programs out there to get people in college. I actually like whoever's idea it was to get some of that money down to the primary and high schools to improve their conditions.
If you remember, Gov. Phil Bredeson had a very similar idea to ole Bill's when he was running for a second term. I guess Bill thought if it worked for him I will try it too.
Al said, "Actually, the subject is about gun DEATHS. I see nothing stated or implied about gun control in Mr. Bennett's work."
Al, on many other cartoons you seem to be happy to relay your interpretation of the meaning behind the cartoon. But today you want to ignore the IMPLICATION.
Why is that?
yes i am PT. I work 3 jobs at the present.
I think you guys are right, PT and Jesse
Chuckie is only able to "stand up" in DC because his leash, held by the fascist hard right wing, is kept tight.
WOW!!! Don't hold anything back Librul. Tell us how you really feel.
Z, I disagree with you. I believe that simply being the POTUS does entitle him to be shown respect. Obviously you were never in the military. Respect there is shown simply by rank on an impersonal basis. You show respect to your superiors regardless of what you think of them which means you are at the very least cordial.
Regarding the cartoon, I am on Chuck's email list and receive emails from him at least quarterly. I have not had a problem with him as of yet. I know him personally and at first did not think he had what it takes to stand up for himself in D.C. However, I have been pleasantly surprised.
As Al said, your scenario is one of intentionality. The mom intentionally starved her 2 yr old by buying meth instead of putting food on the table. AND she used her welfare check to do it. =)
That was a very creative way to get a job. Hats off to ya.
I agree with you that people who want to work will do what it takes to get a job. When I moved here from Texas I had been laid off from my previous employer with a disabled child. So we moved back home to be with family to help us in any way possible with our child. I had no job and did not even consider getting unemployment cause I knew I could get a job paying more than that easily if I wanted to.
I was out of work 2 months before finally accepting a waiter job, very much underneath what I was used to. However, I used that job along with some assistance from the Government for my child to better myself and go to college to be a nurse while supporting a family of 5. I believe that is what the programs were meant to do. Just be a temporary assistance.
I have not spoken in generalities but have spoken from experience and what I have heard others actually say. I know there are folks just like Al and myself that do what it takes to take care of our family. But in my experience, they are the minority.
Gassy, your "suspicions" are not fact tho. You have not really lived it.
BTW, Thank you for serving our country. I am a fellow serviceman myself.
I will put it this way. Some folks work very hard and NOT working.
