    My name is Christine, and I get food stamps. I've had to apply off and on over the past 16 years in order to make sure my family was fed. I don't feel the least bit ashamed of myself for this, but apparently some people think I should. Some people think I, and people like me, am lazy. Or that we're taking advantage of other (smarter, harder-working) people. Those people seem to have an image in their heads of how someone who "deserves" assistance behaves, and a very narrow idea of how we should feel about it. Those people are...
  • Prosecutor: Baby Bella 'screamed to be let out' in life of torment

    09/21/2015 10:13:29 AM PDT · by outpostinmass2 · 36 replies
    The drug-addled mother of Bella Bond watched her boyfriend swath the tot's lifeless body in a garbage bag and stuff her in their refrigerator before the Dorchester couple went on a days-long heroin binge, a prosecutor said today. "She was a demon and this was her time to die," Michael P. McCarthy, 35, and a fanatic of the occult, told Rachelle D. Bond, 40, one terrible day in May as he stood over Bella in the 2 1/2-year-old child's bedroom, according to assistant Suffolk District Attorney David Deakin. McCarthy, his long blond hair spilling over his shoulders, was held without...

    The bill for the summer-work vacation of first lady Michelle Obama, accompanied to England and Italy by her daughters, mom, and staff, should easily top her entourage's 2010 trip to Spain that cost an eye-popping $467,000. While the White House didn't provide cost estimates for the week-long visit to London, Milan, Venice, and Vincenza, Italy, the State Department put lodging costs for just a couple nights in Venice at $128,781, according to Free Beacon, and Air Force charges based on a 2012 document for flying her group on past overseas trips indicate that this one will hit $243,000.
  • California Dems push to repeal 'welfare queen' law

    02/26/2015 5:26:12 AM PST · by baltimorepoet · 12 replies ^ | Feb 26 2015 | Barnini Chakraborty
    California Democrats are trying to reverse a decades-old state law that bars families from getting extra welfare money for having an additional child, describing the law as "sexist" and "classist" -- despite concerns that repealing it could compound the state's money woes. The so-called "welfare queen" law was passed two decades ago during the heyday of welfare reform. At the time, Democrats were in charge of the state legislature and Republican Pete Wilson was governor. Today, Democrats are still in charge, but the base of support for the law is fading.

    A Seattle couple alleged to have been drawing government assistance while living in a $1.2 million Lake Washington home has been charged with defrauding the government and is expected to plead guilty.

Both are expected to appear in U.S. District Court next week to answer the felony charge of theft of government funds, which was filed by information Tuesday. Attorneys for both defendants said Tuesday their clients will be pleading...

    A woman who is eight-months pregnant with her sixteenth child is claiming police brutality after she says Tampa officers used a stun gun on her. Tampa police arrested Angel Adams, 39, this week and charged her with battery on a law enforcement officer after a scuffle when police came to her home to talk to one of her sons. She says the stun gun endangered her life -- and the life of her unborn child. Adams, 39, first made headlines two years ago when she was evicted from her apartment, then moved into a small motel room with 12 of...

    When Eugene Jenkins showed up at St. Paul AME Church at 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, he didnít know he would be one of the last people to get a ticket for assistance with his heating bill.He waited in line until 7 a.m., when officials started to hand out the tickets, then went home for a few hours before returning at 10 a.m. By the time he had finished up his paperwork, it was 1:15 p.m., making for a long day. Jenkins was one of the lucky ones in Macon, though. Other people were turned away because the Macon-Bibb County Economic Opportunity...

    The Washington Post ^ | July 30, 2010 | Emi Kolawole
    Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) literally lost it on the House floor Thursday over his Republican colleagues' procedural objection to an amendment to the Public Health Services Act. The amendment would extend and improve health care benefits for 9/11 victims suffering from lasting health complications. Weiner is given to House floor drama. The New York Democrat is known for his often passionate and attention-grabbing remarks. He screamed for more than a minute Thursday, calling on Republican colleagues to vote 'no' against the bill, rather than object on procedural grounds.

  • How could American Oil Companies lower the price? Or Could they?

    05/22/2008 12:36:01 PM PDT · by chaosagent · 44 replies · 58+ views
    Could American Oil Companies lower the price of Oil, even if they wanted? The last figures I saw showed that American oil companies controlled 25% of the world market and 40% of the US Market. Let's say that under Congressional pressure all of America's oil companies got together and said they were going to sell their oil at $50 per barrel. What would happen? My thought is that the rest of the world would immediately buy up all their output to resell at the world price and then nothing else would change. Anyone have any other scenarios?
