Check it out at the grocery store. Last weekend we were behind a Mexican woman giving trouble to the clerk. She was trying to 'purchase' items on that government welfare card that were not allowed... and having to pull out loads of just mess. It was still amazing what was allowed. She was angry... and for some what I think was called "Smirnoff Coolers' or something and all the other mess - SHE PULLED OUT CASH to pay for that junk while she spent OUR MONEY feeding herself/whomever. I still say we should have a thing set up for those on food stamps to pick up their "allotment" according to children in the home from Social Services in each county. If they want to barter it off from there and starve, then its them. I am sick of this mess. Then their little children STILL DON'T EAT! We are doing this wrong. If we really strictly fed only those who were hungry in a strict what nobody could abuse it? It would cut off all the riff-raff and get it to the people we certainly want to try and help. Our government is enabling them to steal and I am sick of it. No... I don't have any compassion for it at all. I still say those who are hungry aren't getting what they need and until things are handled better -- I don't want to hear about more ways to essentially abuse us all in the same ways saying food stamps aren't enough. Able-bodied citizens collecting foodstamps should be put to work to earn them at the very least. Perhaps we could put all those generationally entitled teenagers and adults to work. We could really meet the needs of the true needy - its our government and the sorry that consistently misuse the system and the problem is never solved nor improved.

Or she might decide it is cheaper to pay the $700 Obama tax and keep going to the ER when she needs it.

Moral Monday, as they are calling their protests in Raleigh, NC is making the state a little extra spending money. So far, over 700 people have been arrested. Thanks for helping the great state of North Carolina.

Finally... After being absent for many years, sanity is being restored to the NC election process... ID is required to pick up prescription meds and to cash a check, but NC Democrats insist that minorities, the elderly and women will be disenfranchised if IDs are required for voting... Preposterous! The House will vote today and the Senate is expected to confirm by Friday BIG changes to our elections law... ================================================ House voting on ID, election changes By Ginger Livingston, The Daily Reflector Thursday, July 25, 2013 The state House is expected to vote on legislation this afternoon that will change election laws and require voters to present identification before casting a ballot. The Senate passed the revised legislation 32-14 vote that fell along party lines. Pitt County Republican Sen. Louis Pate voted yes; Democrat Don Davis voted not. The House, which originally wrote the voter identification legislation, must vote again on the changes approved by the Senate. Pitt County Republican Rep. Brian Brown said Thursday he’ll vote for the legislation. “I’ve had the opportunity now to investigate the bill and voice my concerns,” Brown said. Brown said he had some initial concerns about changes made by the Senate such as cutting a week off the early voting period and limiting the number of acceptable forms of identification that can be used a polling sites. However, he believes the overall legislation preserves the integrity of the state’s election system. “I would like to see state issued IDs be permissible but I have to take a look at the bill as a whole and vote for concurrence,” he said. As far as the reduction in the early voting period, Brown believes it will be offset by an amendment that allows counties to lengthen the time polling places are open and allow counties to open more early voting locations. “I think in reality it set forwards a good compromise because we have people who want to do away with early voting altogether while there are people who would like to see a month-long early voting period,” he said. Speaker of the House Thom Tillis has said his chamber will approve the legislation. The General Assembly is working to conclude this session on Friday. Pitt County’s other House members, Susan Martin, R-Wilson, and Jean Farmer-Butterfield, D-Wilson, could not be reached for comment. The Senate’s legislation stripped away some of the forms of identification the House said would be acceptable for voting including college identification and local government identification cards. Republican supporters say the new legislation will preserve the integrity of the state’s election process. Numerous civil rights and voter rights organizations say there is no evidence of widespread fraud and the legislation is designed to make it more difficult for minorities, the young, the elderly and women to vote. Other election law changes include: ◾Cutting a week off the early voting period. ◾Eliminating same-day voter registration during early voting. ◾Eliminating straight party ticket voting. ◾Repealing pre-registration for 16 and 17 year olds. ◾Repealing a mandate for election officials to conduct high-school registration drives. ◾Raises campaign contribution limits to $5,000. The limit will be increased every two years based on inflation rates. ◾Repeals disclosure requirements of outside money under Candidate Specific Communications. ◾Moves the presidential primary to first Tuesday after South Carolina if that primary is held before March 15. The state’s remaining primary elections will still be held in May under the legislation.
