Posted on 08/31/2010 10:08:50 AM PDT by TSgt
Time is running out for people in need to get help paying their summer utility bill. Today is the deadline to apply for aid through the county.
Before 10 a.m., the Community Action Agency let 230 people in to apply. Some lined up before the sun came up this morning at the agency's office in Bond Hill. Applicants can get up to $175 to pay their utility bill, an air conditioner or a fan .. or a combination of benefits.
Some in the line were upset that they couldn't get in or were turned away. But, those in charge of the program say they've had more people apply for help in the last two years than in the history of the program.
Rennia Baird told Local 12, "I came here yesterday but I got turned away. I was the last people and they did the cut off so I go here an hour early this morning."
Robin Avant of the Home Energy Assistance Program says "Unfortunately we have a lot of people that wait until the very last day and we can only take so many people."
Since July, more than 4,100 people have received assistance. This program is funded by the State of Ohio.
They’re not “lazy”, they’re “The Leisure Class”.
A line for getting an air condition for FREE?
Where’s it at?
Sounds better than clipping coupons/sarc
I don’t have all day to stand in a f****** line. I have to work. Shouldn’t these people have to too?
Has the media reported that this is an “overwhelmingly black crowd”?
They are shameless tax freeloaders. At least they can thank the productive members of society for this largesse. They should also thank the Chinese worker for subsidizing their habits.
Gee, it sort of looks like a Glen Beck Tea Party rally. Only in reverse.
Disgusting. Anyone who stands in a line like this, accepts welfare or food stamps should not be allowed to vote.
ROGULSKI:Why are you here ?
Woman: To get some money
ROGULSKI: What kind of Money ?
Woman: OBAMA MONEY! $$$$$
ROGULSKI: Wheres it comin; from ?
ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it from ?
WOMAN: I dont know, his stash. I dont know. I dont know where he got it from, but hes givin it to us. And we love him. Thats why we voted for him. O-ba-ma. O-ba-ma.
If only they put this kind of effort into actually getting a job.
Here’s the funny part.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO STAND IN LINE!
You can apply for the program online via a free computer with free internet access at your local free air conditioned library!
These idiots can’t even do that for themselves!
Summer heating assistance?! First we have to pay to keep these deadbeats warm in winter and now cool in the summer too?!
Living in Cincinnati and having received a few energy bills from Duke Energy, I wish I could line up as well.
I wonder if the media noticed this was a ‘predominantly black’ gathering
No! This program if funded by taxes. Nothing is free and the taxpayers are screwed again.
It may not be fashionable to say but at our church, we have people calling every day looking for help with either food or utility bills, we have only one black family in our town that I know of and they haven’t called yet.
It’s not just a black thing, people of all races are hurting in Obama’s economy.
wow, what a diverse looking group of people.
Free mortgage, free gas and now free air conditioning!!! Praise Obama!!!!!
