What some of our cities are requesting...

http://www.usmayors.org/mainstreeteconomicrecovery/stimulussurveyparticipantsdata.asp?City=Charlotte&State=NC

http://www.usmayors.org/mainstreeteconomicrecovery/stimulussurveyparticipantsdata.asp?City=Concord&State=NC

http://www.usmayors.org/mainstreeteconomicrecovery/stimulussurveyparticipantsdata.asp?City=Durham&State=NC

http://www.usmayors.org/mainstreeteconomicrecovery/stimulussurveyparticipantsdata.asp?City=Fayetteville&State=NC

http://www.usmayors.org/mainstreeteconomicrecovery/stimulussurveyparticipantsdata.asp?City=Gastonia&State=NC

http://www.usmayors.org/mainstreeteconomicrecovery/stimulussurveyparticipantsdata.asp?City=Rocky+Mount&State=NC

O.K. Now, here you have to actually look at the last line of each one of them.

Asheville $13,950,000
Charlotte $827,300,000
Concord: $50,243,050
Durham $105,002,217
Fayetteville $93,683,001
Gastonia $202,240,000
Rocky Mount $62,700,000
Winston Salem $618,050,000

The total from just these towns alone is 1,973,168,268

That's almost TWO BILLION DOLLARS for makework programs. Apparently, they think putting a new roof on a fire department is going to create a long-term job for someone.

They are making temp-work.

That's just SICK!!!!

I’m not sure how the ‘racist warnings’ tie in with the oath to the President never happening. But, I’m sure you do, lol.
