TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—

More than 500 foster children from around the state were adopted in November for National Adoption Month.

Parents who adopt foster kids receive a monthly adoption subsidy for the family, health benefits for the child, and free college tuition.

Roughly 750 foster children are still waiting for a family. The children most in need of homes are teens, sibling groups and children with special needs.

A newly redesigned website at www.adoptflorida.org highlights children and sibling groups in foster care each day of the month with photos and videos.

Last year, 3,250 children were adopted from Florida's foster care system.

Nice!

They also want to sweep under the rug the fact that democrats suppported this war - before they were against it - for political purposes.

Weasels stick together, I suppose.

Was or was not your bank account larger? Answer Yes
Why was it larger - tax cuts
Play your semantics games all you want.
Did it change your gross income? You know, the money you actually earn before the government take their cut.

Most of us already pay enough in taxes. The wealthy would pay even more than they already do if the Democrats would utter the words "tax reform", much less follow through.

So where's the spending cuts Obama keeps talking about in his "balanced approach"?

Somehow that never materializes. That's not even a little bit odd?

You do realize that he just agreed with the Obama plan. A combination of spending cuts & revenue increases.
"real dumb"
president nobama has outlined hos plan very well. Immeadiate tax increases. After that act of theft takes place he will consider spending cuts. Yeah right. Cuts to the military will be okay, cuts to security of American's overseas can be cut, additional stealing from medicare is a go.
Gotta a question for you "real dumb" why should anyone pay a higher or lower tax rate than you do? You are envious of others success and want to penalize them?
You are dumb.

Really. You mean that we will never know what if? Wow, you are brilliant.
Gore would not have had the tax cuts.
Gore would have paid more attention to Hart Rudman. Who knows, could have stopped 9-11 as Hart Rudman pointed out our airport security weakness.
Gore never would have lied to go to war in Iraq.
That saved 4000 soldiers & trillions of dollars.
You Bush voters just can't handle the guilt that sits u[on your shoulders.
Who does this remind you of?

So, you are telling me that in my example, you would not have more money in your bank account.

Is that right?

Dummy Eman goes to the store to buy a new washer. He saw the one he wanted. The sticker said $400.00.

He went to pay for it & the clerk said, "Oh, these are 20% off today".

Did or did not that discount give Dummy Eman an extra $80.00?

So which alternative to the two sides of the aisle did you vote for in '12?
You mean 3 sides of the aisle - status QuObama, conservative Romney/Ryan or moderate Mitt? I consider most conservatives to be neurotic and in certain cases borderline sociopaths, but I might have gone for moderate Mitt if his religion wasn't looney-tunes and if his forays in venture capitalism didn't have such an abysmal track record for domestic job production.

Not anymore amazing than liberals being told democrats voted to give Bush permission to go into Iraq (seeing they wanted to remove him themselves back in 1998) and voted to fund that war before it became politically expedient to become weasels and it's as if their hearing just shuts down.
