I'll say this about Gov. Romney's comments that were exposed last evening. I'm part of the 47%, my mother when she went back to school to get her education had to use government assistance, we had rental assistance, food stamps and help with paying for daycare for myself and my sister. When I went to school, the federal government backed my student loans and make it easier now that I don't have an outstanding income that we can still live and pay part of my student loans each month. Now that Christie is pregnant and Jack is a toddler we are helped by the WIC program in making sure we can provide the correct foods for Jack and Christie and Tommy when he gets here. Yes, there are people who abuse the system, but 47%? That's like the old college adage of "look to your left and look to your right and one of these people aren't going to be here at graduation." Romney's version is, Look to your right, look to your left, look in front and in back, 2 of these 4 people take no responsibility for their life. I have taken personal responsibility for my life, we purchased a house, we pay our bills, but we do need a "hand-up" at different points in our lives and for my family right now, this is one of them. Gov. Romney, you are correct there is 47% of the country that wouldn't vote for you, no matter what. I'm proud to consider myself one of them.

I find this Facebook posting outrageous. Does his wife work? Does he not have any pride being the mayor? He's working for theyou government getting insurance and a salary and now he admits he receives WIC? Hey, Adam, wear a rubber. Didn't you learn what causes pregnancy with that government funded college education?

The cycle continues. I'm sure all his liberal friends hit the like button.

The first time in my life I voted for a democrat. It really back-fired!!!! I sent myself to college with 3 kids and received NO government assistance. So typical of democrats. Look to your left and to your right and find yourself a full time job, come next re-election. None from me. Lazy-bones. I wouldn't brag about this. Wrap that weiner!!!!
sure you did

Sure you went to college with three kids and received no government assistance. How do we know that? How do we know you even went to college, or for that matter have three kids? We don't. Just because you say it on here doesn't make it true. By the way, I am a rock star. It must be true, I said it on topix.

How embarrassing. His Government student loans sure didn't help him with sentence structure.

I would have to see the actual posting on his Facebook page to believe this. I am not going to believe it just because someone on Topix says that it is posted there.

Go look at his facebook page then!

Well, I guess maybe I will go facebook stalk him like the rest of you did.

Your last comment is pretty pathetic.

Okay, so it is on there. I guess if the people don't won't him using wic they need to either give him a raise as mayor or quit complaining if he picks up a job in addition to being mayor.

He doesn't even pull weeds out of his garden. I guess with all of his government assistance, he doesn't need to grow his own. His dubble dippin friend Jim Holycross isn't any better.

All I know is what he posted. He said people were upset that he had a job in addition to being mayor. Maybe he shouldn't run again, though.

I will give him credit for South Main Street and changing Police chiefs. What about Reservoir Road and several other side streets? It is like Kentucky used to be, you would be driving on pavement which narrowed into gravel, and all of a sudden you would be driving in a creek bed. That is how these half-finished streets are.
Being mayor is only a part-time job, the pay is not enough to feed a family, but he does have another job. Maybe they should look into being 'foster parents', too.
