    Gun owners give up weapons for groceries SAN DIEGO — Gun owners had a chance to exchange weapons for Friday morning. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and the United African American Ministerial Action Council held another installment of their “Guns for Gift Cards” program from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Tubman/Chavez Multicultural Center in Valencia Park. The program allows people to turn in working-condition guns, no questions asked, in exchange for monetary vouchers redeemable at area grocery stores. Shotguns and rifles bring $50 credit each, while pistols and assault-type weapons fetch $100 apiece. Participants must place the weapons,...

    If you are foolish enough to answer truthfully on an application for state assistance, do not despair. The state has thought of that, and does not discriminate against the foolish; you will likely be given multiple opportunities to lie, and you will eventually get your fair share. Always remember that it is best to consult your state and federal poverty guidelines before you subjectively determine what you can or cannot afford. The numbers do not lie, even if you have to lie to fall within them. Please allow me to repeat that: there are state and federal poverty guidelines. Allow...

    On Christmas Eve, I, my three small children, and my wife, who works the graveyard shift at a truck stop to supplement our meager income, visited our local Kroger store to pick up a loaf of frozen garlic bread to go with dinner. I refrain from writing much about myself in this blog, as it seems somewhat egotistic to assume anyone would want to read about my personal life. However, on this particular night, we ended up checking out behind a group of ladies. Their hair was newly done, obviously at a salon. Each of them had had their fingernails...

    State creates or retains 8,284 jobs with stimulus funds By Patrick Marley of the Journal Sentinel Posted: Oct. 13, 2009 2:00 p.m. Madison — Wisconsin state government has used federal economic stimulus money to create or retain 8,284 jobs in Wisconsin, mostly by saving public-sector jobs. A brief report released Tuesday by Gov. Jim Doyle provided details on money spent by state government, but did not cover funds awarded directly to local governments and the University of Wisconsin System. Those numbers will be made public later. More than 6,100 jobs for police officers, teachers and other government workers were retained...

    I dont get it. I keep hearing from people that welfare is immoral and wasteful when it helps so many people who would die without it. I also hear some of them talking about giving money to charities such as the salvation army and the like. Everyone has a right to live, that means the right to freedom, a job, a car and a home. No one should be forced to live without any of those. I was homeless for a year before a went on welfare. They helped me get a job and a home and I dont need...

    Life long republican - Drive by troll
    All my life, I believed in Republican values -- individual responsibility and limited government. Then it happened; I found myself with a small child, unemployed and disabled. I turned to my church, and after years of regular tithes, suddenly I just wasn't their problem. My Republican friends? I was now a pariah to them. My only relief was to turn to government assistance for housing, food, and other needs and I was able to survive with dignity. So chalk me up as one who no longer drinks the GOP koolaid.

    You all read about that girl down in southern California who got an F on her final term paper because she used the word "God" in a term paper about religion which her teacher has assigned the students to write? He had warned them not to use that word. The town is just east of Los Angeles. I want to call it Velveeta, but it probably isn't exactly that.

    Ronald Reagan did some fine things, but the economic theory that bears his name was not one of them. Reaganomics made the world safe for today's reckless tax-cutting. And the public hardly understands the social upheaval these policies will soon unleash. Reaganomics held that cutting taxes and reducing the size of government would let loose the nation's entrepreneurial juices and lead to economic growth. Note that the theory comes in two parts. The fun part is cutting taxes. The not-so-fun part is reducing government. Do the first part without the second, and you end up with budget deficits and an...

    Actually, Jesse couldn't give a rat's ass unless it's FOR Jesse. It's the DC Chapter that will put it to good use. To be used in an upcoming protest, a block of government cheese, in it's cardboard carton and plastic wrapper is requested. In lieu of that, just the cardboard box would be fine. Please send me a FReep Mail before you send anything, so we don't wind up with more than we need. By Feb 20th, send your "donation" for this effort to: DC Chapter of Free Republic P.O. Box 65165 Washington, D.C. 20035-5165 Thank you.
