Southeastern Kentucky will be one of the nation’s first five “Promise Zones” and local officials are expected to be present for a 2 p.m. announcement at the White House, according to the official.

The zone would cover the Kentucky counties of Bell, Clay, Harlan, Knox, Leslie, Letcher, Perry and Whitley. The counties, with a total population of under 200,000, have an average poverty rate of more than 30 percent, according to the Kentucky Highlands Investment Corporation (KHIC), an economic development firm formed in 1968 during President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “war on poverty.”

Hey meat head.... no one sends me an entitlement check... I receive Veteran Service Connected Disability to which I Paid For with blood, and I receive Social Security for which I Paid twice the average paid in as those that retire at 65 and only have done so for a few years as I Worked from the time I was 16 , enlisted in the military, injured while serving, recovered and went Back to work ... In My Life I have received 12 days of un-employment, have Never received a single food stamp or collected a single penny from an Entitlement program...

But of course with your post i can tell your intellectual level leaves you not actually knowing what an Entitlement program is... Hoped this has helped in your further education...

The goverment is the perfect ponzi scheme, people are forced to invest in it and " "PROMISED" a return on their investment (Later). Problem is the people who make the promises know they will not be there when the promise must be fulfilled. So each new politician has to promise more and more to quiet the folks, knowing they cant even deliver on th promises of the past.

The whole PROMISE scheme is falling apart and we are all gonna be crushed by it. The younger generations see how dumb and stupid it is and they are not gonna dive in blindly like we old codgers did. I saw good for them , tell this corrupt system to kiss your ass.

It appears Q. earned what he gets, I feel safe in saying most of his neighbors just steal what they recieve.

Agreed... The time will come when the transfer of wealth runs out of wealth to transfer and those that have been and remain dependent of government will find the faucet closed...

Right now the US is 18 Trillion in debt and spending like a drunken sailor when the next shoe drops it will be riots in the streets of cities across the nation as those that are dependent find they have no jobs, have never bothered to learn a skill or gain an education are left without the funding they have become dependent upon... And is the prime reason the government has purchased 1000's of armored vehicles, 25,000 M3 select fire assault rifles and unknown Billing of rounds of ammo...

We are but One national disaster from totalitarian rule...
