Clinckondetroit ^ | 7 Oct 09 | none

DETROIT -- Detroit's homeless and low-income residents have another opportunity for a chance at millions of stimulus dollars.

The money is available to help low-income residents from becoming homeless and homeless residents to find housing.

Thousands of people lined up Tuesday.

Some people in line falsely believed they were registering for $3,000 stimulus checks from the Obama Administration.

City officials told Local 4 that Detroit was granted $15 million to help residents pay bills and their rent or find temporary housing for the homeless.

0bama also cut off health benefits to a group of World War 2 veterans from Alaska, so screwing our troops and our veterans is just par for the course for this disgrace of a president.

But the amusing part of wasting even more money on the poor is this... when was the last time the USA came out of a recession on the fruits of the labor of the poor?

I guess this is building the economy from the bottom up. Wouldn't it make more sens to give the millions to small Detroit businesses so they can hire these people?

Look at thet picture.

Tell me why the rest of the world despises “us”. Especially the hardworking Asians who intend to stop buying our debt. Do they think that line is ever going to pay them back? How’s that for “full faith and credit”?.

Based on what I see in that video still shot; why not file an EEOC complaint that a disproportionate number of blacks are receiving the money?

I don't see any blue eyes in that picture?

Looking at that line of people, it is obvious they aren’t getting the money because they are starving...

Would you hire them? Would you have them serving your customers? Would you eat at at restaurant or even fast food place with some of these folks preparing and serving food?

Actually, I don’t think many in that line have ANY experience working at anything more than the lowest menial jobs. And, thank you socialism, for what you have wrought.

(BTW, I agree with you, NeverForget01. I lost friends in the Beirut bombing of 1983, I have not, will not, forget them.)

If the big crash ever does happen, those people are not going to make it. Without any government to funnel other peoples nolonger existant treasure to them, they will likely starve after they have robbed and looted everything each other has.

I’d say that more than half of this country just would not make it.

They were in downtown Detroit (by Cobo Hall) in the thousand this morning. I had to go there this AM and by 10 AM the line must have been over a 1,000 feet long with people about 3 abreast. The had all the road around the area completely congested and ignored traffic lights at will.

‘Small’ inpatient fee hike of 21% seen as broken promise
Published: October 6, 2009

“Defense health officials didn’t do the Obama administration any favor Wednesday when they announced a “small” increase in the daily fee that military retirees under 65, their families and covered survivors must pay for inpatient care in civilian hospitals under TRICARE Standard starting Oct. 1.

The jump, in fact, for working age retirees and their families is $110 per day, a 20.6 percent increase.”

We are the first nation in the history of the world to have obese "poor" people. Our "poor" also usually have a car, microwave oven, cell phone, computer, and more than one television set.

From Ebony magazine......

Sisters speak out: 'too many Black women are too fat' - Black women, in epidemic proportions, some would say, are eating themselves to death. According to recent studies, 50 percent of African-American women are obese compared to only 40 percent of Mexican-American women and only 30 percent of White women.

This is NOT economic stimulus. It is bald faced handouts to those who will (seemingly) ALWAYS be dependent on government....
