"CAN'T BUY ME LOVE" beatles
A few weeks ago there was a story about a Michigan woman who won a million dollar's in the Michigan Lotto and still expected to receive her monthly food stamp allotment from the state of Michigan. Many including myself were dumbfounded as to why this woman still expected this freebee. Along with the state still sending her a check do they do any research?
Then I looked at what was going on on a national level the American oil companies had shown a 38 billion dollar profit for 2011. Yet the oil companies as well as many in Washington D.C. still believe they are entitled to a 4 billion dollar subsidy?
Maybe I'm missing something but will someone explain the difference to me between the woman in Michigan and the oil companies thinking?
With the country's budget in the shape it's in why are we still spending billions in Afghanistan and have 90,000 troops still in that war theater? Remember the reason for going there was to get Bin Laden.
Seems we never have money for things we should do in this country but for some reason we always somehow find the money to stay in a war?
Is there a war on women being waged by the Republican party? If your a woman ask yourself would a deer want to extend hunting season?
Our city administration has informed us that starting soon they will do the Main St. streetscape? They have a $600,000 grant and have added almost $300,000 of city revenue to the pot. Almost $900,000 to redo Main St. again. It would be interesting to see how much money Painesville has spent on that 200 yards of road in the last 50 years?
While were on the subject of Painesville, did the city receive that grant money for the bridge on the "road to nowhere". Waiting for good news!
Yes a ton of money seems to be going for things that don't seem to important to myself.
Now we propose a new Republican budget. First off we all should have "skin in the game". The elderly, the young, the rich in the poor. In the Ryan/Romney budget who has to make the biggest sacrifices and what group does it seem gets a bonus from this budget? Before voting this year ask yourself who benefits and who will suffer. If your honest with yourself it's right in front of your eyes.
Wait until we all find out who contributes to [ALEC] American Legislative Exchange Council. You want to know who provided funds and support to the "Stand Your Ground Law". And the right wants to talk about unions?
