EAST POINT, Ga. - Video showed chaos unfolding in the city of East Point on Wednesday morning as hundreds of people waited for their chance to get federal housing assistance. Aerials from above the East Point Housing Authority showed a large group of people congregating around police cars and causing a scene as several people handed out applications.
Mobs of people surrounded police cars, and FOX 5 has learned workers were handing out applications to the crowd, but they would only do so with police presence. Those in the crowd would receive an application, then fill it out and wait in lines to turn them in. ...

These are the people who thought Obama was going to pay for their car, their house, their gas, their groceries and their utilities.
I don’t have to look. It’s black Obama supporters. It’s disgusting. We are at least 13 TRILLION in debt, another “stmulus of 26.1 BILLION of our money wasted and HE DOES THIS? It’s beyond outrageous. I can’t type my true feelings about this or I will be banned.
Correction, these are the people who know that obama is going to take our money and give it to them.
I’ll bet they’re also getting a demon-crat voter registration card too with those welfare housing applications. Goes hand in hand with this administration.
This is Obama’s vision for the future. All of us lining up for the few crumbs that fall from the government table. We’ll no longer be citizens, just a pack of dogs chasing too few scraps of food..
I WILL NOT LIVE LIKE THAT! EVER!
When the government goes broke, these same people will be rioting in every urban area across the USA.
The very threat of this rioting makes me glad for bitterly clinging to my guns.
If I’m a racist for stating the obvious....so be it.
Exactly! Spot on accurate. all one needs to do is watch Dawn of the Dead or the remake to know what is going to occur with these people.
Sad to say, but they would be better off on farms working growing and producing food.

“I have no desire to be called a racist, so I’ll say nothing, I’ll let the video speak for itself.”
Or just post the word “typical”
Housing? For me?
It is now a smoragboard for the impoverished because there are so MANY available houses, apartments and luxury homes on the market. It's disgusting. The impoverished are getting a FREE RIDE and YOU are PAYING for it. I guarantee you, some are living BETTER than you are and at YOUR expense.
That would be the best thing but any semblance of independence is considered a threat to their (politicians and corporate execs) “society”.
> Sad to say, but they would be better off on farms working growing and producing food.
GIMME MY GUBERMENT CHEESE!
“When the government goes broke, these same people will be rioting in every urban area across the USA.”
If we have an economic shock or major reduction in government transfer payments, major unrest will occur. I am not sure if the unrest will be rioting, looting, or general lawlessness. Democrats will foment anger at conservatives to gain political advantage from widespread unrest. I agree that ownership of firearms will be essential.
Meanwhile on Aug 10 in 2,860 GA precincts there was a2,487 vote difference; lss than 1 vote per precinct.
Control is decided by whomever has the ground game and can get that extra vote per precinct to the polling place.
Guaranteed Obama will get his voters to the Polling place.
How about our side? Or have we thrown up the white flag and resigned ourselves that retreat into our bunkers is the only alternative? Or will we say REMEMBER NOVEMBER ?
“Democrats will foment anger at conservatives to gain political advantage from widespread unrest.”
Yes....but it will be directed at capitalism and anyone who voted GOP.
They will use the media as their bullhorn and really fan the flames.
I have a friend who buys every crappy house he can get his hands on. He makes them barely habitable and rents them out to section 8.
He says the Government pays the greater part of the rent and he doesnt care if the inhabitants pay or not , he makes enough off the government to make the payments on the properties which will be his after the government has paid for them. If the renters pay anything at all that is gravy.
This used to be a nation where people wanted to get away from government.
Just no words to express my boiling frustration at these rats for making us into a basket-case.
No doubt. I am about fed up with all the “co-president” attitudes.
The rats have done an excellent job already. They have initiated war against capitalism and then denied that war was declared.
The ‘Oboomba gonna pay my mortgage from his stash’ crowd.
AIDS manual on computer desk. Nice.
These are the people who thought Obama was going to pay for their car,
their house, their gas, their groceries and their utilities.
I suspect that most of the threats on the President investigated by
the Secret Service.....
are made by disgruntled folks that voted for him
Of course, in the hopes he’d usher them into a rent-free, free-money paradise.

My first job out of college was to rehab slum housing for Doctors and Lawyers. The gig then was the accelerated depreciation used to shield income. The Doctors and Lawyers were in the >50% tax bracket and would depreciate the slums in 7 years shielding a meaningful portion of their income from taxes. After seven years they would sell the properties to one another and start the whole cycle over. I came in on the swap to make the places marginally habitable. The funny thing was I had to be out of those neighborhoods before dark and I never let any of my tools out of my sight. These properties could have been bought by the residents but they prefered to just live their. The only articles of wealth to the tenants were a Cadillac and a color TV. All other forms of property were seen as meaningless. Learned a lot doing that.
Even worse, this is not for actual housing but section 8 which will then place them in what used to be nice neighborhoods where property values will then decline inversely to the crime rate.
They did to us in one of the more affluent areas of Atlanta when sections of our county dared to form cities to escape their taxation without services.
I believe these are federal vouchers and such these Alantians can thus move out to a nice, light, suburb.
I remember a study overlapping Section 8 voucher growth and crime. Same Same.
Exactly why we just bought a farm out in the country. I refuse to sit around hoping that the entitlement animals will behave.
I hope they DO!
I am so angry at how we WORK HARD for what we have and lazy bums feel ENTITLED to a reward for their LACK of AMBITION and just plain LAZY as they hide behind their skin color and self imposed impoverishment.
There are some that it is not their fault. You will NOT find them there. The difference between them and the handout people is they have some DIGNITY and know it is wrong to seek a FREE RIDE. These landlords see something coming in as better than nothing - even at YOUR EXPENSE! They betray their own work ethic. They deserve a trashed unit or house.
yes, in answer to your question, undoubtedly they will TRASH THE PLACE because they will still not be satisfied. They do not take care of anything. They have no need to care. They KNOW they can impose themselves on someone else that they ENVY and get the same deal. It's sickening.
Yes, I hope they TRASH it so landlords stop falling for this entitlement to enrich their pockets.
With the way Obama’s polices have hurt America I have no doubt that many of these people waiting in line had never had to do this before and did not like that those who felt entitled to it were crowding in.
The day is coming when the government will demand that anybody with rental properties have a certain percentage of Section 8 units.
just ask Peggy:
Some cities already have that by law.
These are the people who thought Obama was going to pay for their car, their house, their gas, their groceries and their utilities.
Hmmmmmmmmm..... Peggy 'knew' that back in the day (2008)...
Yes, Peggy, there is a Santa Claus. He is not the one you remember from childhood but the one fabricated from the dreams and wishes of the Statists and Utopians. You were spoiled, Ashley. You thought that the government was just like Grandpa and Dad, always there to give you whatever your princess heart desired.
Rather than trust the wisdom of those who pampered you all your young life, you turned to those who promised to punish your benefactors and promoted values your benefactors found abhorrent. It's time, Ashely, to grow up and embrace either the values and actions of those who have put you here, or the values and actions of those who will take you away from the life style to which you have become accustomed.
Who is Peggy the Moocher? She's Peggy Joseph, a voter in Sarasota, Fla., who exulted earlier this week at a Barack Obama rally (Oct 31, 2008) that this was "the most memorable time of my life."
Why? As she told a Florida reporter on a YouTube video that has been viewed by hundreds of thousands:
"Because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won't have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know. If I help [Obama], he's gonna help me."
You can't blame Peggy the Moocher for viewing Obama as Santa Claus ..
It used to be that section 8 would only pay $200 towards any damages one of their clients left.Not sure what it is now.I am glad we don’t rent anymore because we have heard from others that still do that they have been threatened by people who qualify for section 8 when they have said they won’t accept it.It’s to the point where the only thing that will save you is to make sure the places only have one bedroom and the rent kept high enough to disqualify it for section 8.
(Oct 8, 2008) ..audio today from Ken Rogulski, WJR. Detroit Free Press: "'Cobo a Scene of Desperation' -- Social service agencies are bracing for more troubles. The economic tsunami washing over metro Detroit swept its casualties to the doors of Cobo Center on Wednesday in the form of 35,000 people so desperate for help with mortgage and utility bills that threats were made, fights broke out and people were nearly trampled." This is Obama's America. This is what happens with socialism. You think these are long lines now, these brainwashed kids in that song on CNN talk about the long lines that are out there, you people haven't seen long lines at the emergency room until Obamacare gets implemented.
"Some were treated by emergency medical workers on site," as they showed up to pick up Obama money. "It was one of the most dramatic signs to date of how deeply joblessness and the home foreclosure crisis have pushed people from the lower and middle ends of the economic scale to seek help wherever they can. City officials said a total of about 65,000 people over the past few days have gotten applications -- due next Wednesday -- for a share of $15.2 million in federal stimulus money to help people avoid foreclosure or quickly rebound from homelessness." But get this. "Ultimately, as few as 3,500 people may receive the help." They think they got riots now, 3,500 people out of 65,000 filling out applications for this? Let's go to audio sound bites, this week here's a portion of Ken Rogulski reporting on WJR in Michigan, two people here in line for Obama cash.
ROGULSKI: Why are you here?
WOMAN #1: To get some money.
ROGULSKI: What kind of money?
WOMAN #1: Obama money.
ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?
WOMAN #1: Obama.
ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?
WOMAN #1: I don't know, his stash. I don't know. (laughter) I don't know where he got it from, but he givin' it to us, to help us.
WOMAN #2: And we love him.
WOMAN #1: We love him. That's why we voted for him!
WOMEN: (chanting) Obama! Obama! Obama! (laughing)
ROGULSKI: Did you get an application to fill out yet?
WOMAN: I sure did. And I filled it out, and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.
ROGULSKI: Will you know today how much money you're getting?
WOMAN: No, I won't, but I'm waiting for a phone call.
ROGULSKI: Where's the money coming from?
WOMAN: I believe it's coming from the City of Detroit or the state.
ROGULSKI: Where did they get it from?
WOMAN: Some funds that was forgiven (sic) by Obama.
ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get the funds?
WOMAN: Obama getting the funds from... Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth. He's the president.
ROGULSKI: In downtown Detroit, Ken Rogulski, WJR News.
I'm all for simply brushing off accusations of racism coming from the left. However, it's also important not to accept that label.
If 95% of a$$hole$ were purple, you're still 100% accurate referring to them as a$$hole$ rather than "purples".
