Flack posts yet another dishonest post.
The idea that welfare pays more than a teacher ay starting salary is dishonest. Just like the idea it pays better than a $8/hr job.
The various Government programs to help the poor & working poor do not all end at the same income level.
Flack & his ilk of deceivers want you to think that a person is better off not taking a $8/Hr job or that teacher job because they would do better on Government assistance.
But the truth is that if a person had a family & took that $8/Hr job, they would still be eligible for many of the programs including rent assistance, heat assistance,childcare. food stamps, healthcare etc.
That Teacher would get a benefit package & retirement. If they had a family, they would likely be eligible for some government help also.
This is why right whiners are considered o be dumber than sh*t.
Most of Flack's statistics came from the CATO Institute aka Charles Koch Foundation.

SAN FRANCISCO -- State Senator Leland Yee has been indicted for public corruption as part of a major FBI operation Tuesday morning spanning the Bay Area, according to law-enforcement sources.

Yee, D-San Francisco, highlights a string of multiple arrests that also includes notorious Chinatown gangster Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, connected to a variety of charges including racketeering and drug crimes, sources said.

FBI agents and local police are serving arrest and search warrants throughout the Bay Area, with agents seen in locations in San Francisco and San Mateo, as well as Yee's Capitol office in Sacramento. One of the searches was at the San Francisco Chinatown office of the Gee King Tong Free Masons and is linked to Chow's arrest.

Targets of the raid are expected to appear in federal court in San Francisco this afternoon.

Some people have sadly enough lost any connection to humanity.

Burning developing humans to stay warm is what they consider an energy solution.

We will reap what we have sown. If we aren't already.

The UK is now burning aborted fetuses for energy.
This is what happens when you put the collective above the individual. You lose sight of human compassion. Another version of Soylent Green.
Don't think it couldn't happen here. We lost our moral compass and aren't even looking for it.
Can't stay too long today, I'm heading off for a fetus burning. Aren't we all tired of winter? Everyone's supposed to bring their own fetuses - it's pot luck - but I'm just going to bring Mitzi, my thirteen year old Shizu... I've dealt with her never-ending farts long enough...

Don't know the reporters name but it was asked at the press conference in the Netherlands yesterday.
The same reporter asked Obama if Romney was right about Russia being a geopolitical foe after all.
The press conference was broadcast here as well as worldwide, I imagine.
Yet you're sure it was a foreign reporter? Was anyone throwing shoes?

No comparison. California's infrastructure has been supported by the United States Treasury and Crimea was annexed by the Russian Empire in 1783. They are more Russian than Ukranian.

Can you tell me what elected office Romney has ever held? He's just another Donald Trump. He likes to hear himself talk. He was not RIGHT. Crimea is a regional conflict between neighboring nations. It has nothing to do with us. Russia's actions do not make it a "geopolitical threat". Romney's posturing is the exact type of posturing that creates wars. We should be thanking our lucky stars he's not our president.
Romney was a governor, wasn't he?

Oh here we go; quell supris that you would glom onto this b/s. Medical waste is burned everywhere. If those women wanted to bury or cremate their fetuses, they could have done so . Look at Rick Sanitorium who took his dead fetus home and slept with it in the bed for days with his wife and children.
You people are sick in the head.
Is that the same Rick Santorum whose wife was shacked up with the infamous abortion doctor

BTW a fetus is not going to produce much if any energy. One of my sources reports that one diabetic leg produces up to 100 times the energy of a second trimester fetus.

Mitt Romney - hid out in France to avoid the draft during the Vietnam War. So, you might want to rethink painting him as some sort of tough guy.
That's what we need, another chickensh*t President who ran from Vietnam pounding the war drums.
And Bush had his daddy pull some string in order to get in the National Guard, then that cowardly bas-turd went AWOL, Cheney said that he was to busy, Rumsfeld got a college deferment, damn near everyone in that fk up administration were chickhawks. Now we are still paying the price for their incompetence and their lie induced wars. Sorry don't even begin to describe those idiots. All those deaths unnecessarily sacrificed, pathetic. By far the worst administration ever.

No it wasn't and that is the very reason you haven't provided a link.

Your source was a direct cut and paste from "Statistic Brain" which claims they compiled their data from the Dept. of Heath and Human Services, Department of Commerce AND CATO Institute.

A big chunk nitwit? The penalty this year is 1% of income minus the filing threshold which is $9750 for a single filer. So if you have an income of $35,000 a year your penalty would be 1% of $25,250 or $252.50.
That's .73% of the gross income. Hardly a big chunk and can only be assessed if you're getting money back.
The penalty does go up to 2.5% by 2016 but it's still not a huge chunk.
Once again Carol, the individual mandate along with the tax penalties was originally a Republican idea. That's something you keep ignoring.
What's your evidence that people are going to lose their employer provided insurance? Employers who don't offer healthcare coverage are going to be at a disadvantage when trying to recruit good employees.
other people's money never matters to worthless government slugs like you.....

You think because a website pictures the Department of Commerce logo they must most certainly BE the Department of Commerce. You are such a fool.
