There are no poor people in the United States. There are more beds and meals waiting than there are homeless.
If you don't want to be what you call "poor", do these things:
1) Don't drop out of school.
2) Study while you're in school.
3) Don't have children before you're married.
4) Get a job and show up for work every day on time.
5) Do what you're paid to do while you're at work.
If you do the above 5 things, you will never be what you call "poor". You will have everything you're trying to take from the people who did the above 5 things.
What is needed is a community organizer that can lead people to do the above 5 things and become a successful part of the economy.
Offhand, I can't think of anyone who has done that.

Most on the right pretended to love old Herman Cain, then when he fell out of favor he was never heard from again. Proving only that the right has absolutely no allegiance but to power and greed. The Independents are the ones that win election and the baggers are losing bad there. Carol spend most of her day whistling and hoping.

Split this way.$0.12 local,$0.07 state, and $0.03 federal. If you can't run the three different governments with the money they receive then cut the government till you can. Then cut it some more. We need to get back to the way the founders envisioned. The most power at the local level. Local politicians are more reachable by the people.
I agree, bring control back to the local level.

I am fed up with the federal government thinking all spending bills are a reward system for those who give to their party.

I'm surprised Nobraina/Galt didn't pick this one up, seeing as how he's pretending to be in CA these days

""In Virginia, government shutdown already hurting a GOP candidate
Just weeks fro

m an election for governor, Republican Ken Cuccinelli has seen his poll numbers tumble since federal agencies were closed.

""ICHMOND, Va.ó Ken Cuccinelli is running for governor, not Congress, but the Virginia Republican is struggling to dodge the political fallout from Capitol Hill.

His campaign in this crucial battleground state is in danger of becoming the first political casualty of the federal government shutdown, which Americans largely blame on Republicans.

With the election just weeks away, Cuccinelli's poll numbers have tumbled since federal agencies were closed Oct. 1. The conservative state attorney general was already lagging, but he went from within striking distance of a vulnerable Democrat to trailing by 8 to 10 percentage points in three independent polls.

As the candidate, a tea party favorite, seeks to distance himself from fellow activists in Congress, national Republican leaders are worried that a key office they expected to hold in a closely watched election is slipping away.""

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE TEA PARTY DUMNASSHOLE?

The Tea Party is a grassroots movement that calls awareness to any issue which challenges the security, sovereignty, or domestic tranquility of our beloved nation, the United States of America. From our founding, the Tea Party represents the voice of the true owners of the United States: WE THE PEOPLE.

TeaParty.org was created on: September 2nd, 2004. Many claim to be the founders of this movement; however, it was the brave souls of the men and women in 1773, known today as the Boston Tea Party, who dared to defy the greatest military might on earth. We are the beneficiaries of their courage.

The Tea Party includes those who possess a strong belief in the foundational Judeo-Christian values embedded in our great founding documents. We believe the responsibility of our beloved nation is etched upon the hearts of true American Patriots from every race, religion, national origin, and walk of life sharing a common belief in the values which made and keep our beloved nation great. This belief led to the creation of the modern-day Tea Party.

Many Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and Independents identify with the premises set forth by the Tea Party Movement, which is striking a chord and ringing true with the American Spirit.

We stand by the Constitution as inherently conservative. We serve as a beacon to the masses that have lost their way, a light illuminating the path to the original intentions of our Founding Fathers. We must raise a choir of voices declaring America must stand on the values which made us great. Only then will the politically blind see and deaf hear!

By joining the Tea Party, you are taking a stand for our nation. You will be upholding the grand principles set forth in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
15 Non-negotiable Core Beliefs

1. Illegal aliens are here illegally.
2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable.
3. A strong military is essential.
4. Special interests must be eliminated.
5. Gun ownership is sacred.
6. Government must be downsized.
7. The national budget must be balanced.
8. Deficit spending must end.
9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal.
10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must.
11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory.
12. Political offices must be available to average citizens.
13. Intrusive government must be stopped.
14. English as our core language is required.
15. Traditional family values are encouraged.

ok, polls....

Most voters still donít like the new national health care law but also say it has had no impact on them so far.

Forty-seven percent (47%) of Likely U.S. Voters share at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the law, while 52% view it at least somewhat unfavorably, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Overall favorables for the law are the highest of the year.
