OR GO TO THE THREAD STIMLUS IN THIS FORUM. It has about 6-7 posts, nobody seems to care. they had rather talk about such nonsense as, who's cheating on their spouse or some other usless crap.
Quite right, Tyler is the only one who took our taxes, ran for office, and told everyone he is a fiscal conservative. Get it? Everyone else was smart enough to keep their damn mouths shut.

This? These are government loans. Just about anyone who has gone to college has gotten a government loan. They are called student loans. Loans must be paid back, so the government is not losing money on these.

I thought Tyler's dad got government "contracts" (not loans) by running his business under a minority person's name. That is something completely different than a government loan.

What am I missing here? Doesn't look like we're comparing apples to apples.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss

RGA
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor one of my constituents, Roscoe Allen, Jr., of Ocilla, Georgia. Mr. Allen has been selected by the Small Business Administration as Small Businessperson of the Year for the State of Georgia, and he will represent Georgia in the selection process for the National Small Businessperson of the Year.

In just 2 years, Mr. Allen has made his mark in the competitive snack food industry. He broke into the peanut processing business by putting in long hours, traveling many miles and practicing his straightforward sales pitch to his wife and long-time friend. His company, known as the Roscoe Allen Company, is the first southern, African-American-owned peanuts and mixed nuts processor. His products are sold in grocery stores all across the southeast as well as in Texas.

Mr. Speaker, I commend Mr. Allen's commitment to providing quality products and outstanding service at an economical price and for achieving success in a competitive market in such a short period of time. I congratulate Mr. Allen and wish him all the best at the Small Businessperson award ceremony and commend him for being an outstanding example of a small businessman and to let him know that all of Georgia is very proud of him.

JB, this is one of the businesses that the Harpers are supposed to own,even though Tyler's dad is an employee.

Dude, I just don't believe Tyler's dad got rich working for Roscoe Allen, Jr. I'm going to be honest, I really don't know because I don't know this family. I have heard that they are really nice folks, but judging from the surface, this business relationship really does look a little suspect.

From Douglas Enterprise;
Lifelong Coffee County resident Rocsoe Allen Jr. visited Washington D.C. on Friday July 27, at the Minority Business Roundtable Briefing.Items discussed at the meeting included "Growing Your Business - Access to Capital and Federal Contracting", The President's Agenda and Small and Minority Owned Businesses, Removing Barriers for Minority Owned Businesses to Compete, and the Obama Administration and Empowering Small Businesses. The day beore, Allen took part in a conference that had top leaders and officials from more then 160 businesses from across the globe.
Since starting the business in 1996, Allen's business earned the Small Business of the Year for Georgia in 1998, and has been featured in multiple magazines and publications including Black Business Enterprise Magazine and Georgia Trend Magazine, and the book "Against All Odds."
This really sounds like a poor dumbass ignorant black man that is being taken advantage of by his employees!

Oh, I have no doubt that the business is in Rocsoe's name and as far as the government is concerned, it is his. But he ain't the one getting rich from it...

Then why or how could he sell his $800,000 condo to his daughter for $10? Must be doing pretty good to do something like that. Not quite as poor as you make him out to be.

Roscoe does own 51 percent of the Roscoe Allen Company.
According to federal law: Under the 'disadvantaged minority' contracts rule: 124.105 What does it mean to be unconditionally owned by one or more disadvantages individulas? The legal answer:'An applicant or participant must be at least 51 percent unconditionally and directly owned by one or more socially and economically disadvantged individuals whom are citizens of the United States.
(a) Ownership must be direct.
I am assuming of course that all laws have been followed, Right?

The letter of the law but not the intent. That's how it works for people who make money off the hard working citizens.They follow the letter of the law close enough to cut a thin red line on their butts but completely avoid the intent of the law. That my friend is how people like Mitt and the rest get rich,they use the money of the nation and then find ways to "avoid" the intent of the law. You know little things like bankruptcy after borrowing lots of money[keeping what they borrowed],then put it in offshore accounts so no taxes. Try that as a middle class person and see if they ask you which jail cell you prefer?

I think that you have this all wrong. It is "Mr. Gene Mitchell" that is doing all the mud-slinging. He has stooped so low as to copy what Hatfield had sent out in a flyer and placed it on every car at the Bacon County football game on Friday night. You and Gene's computer cronies are the ones spreading all the malious lies about the Harper family. Did he get Hatfield's permission to use the flyer? If Mr. Mitchell is such a great person, why would he do this? Or is this you Gene doing all this chatter trying to make yourself good to the four or five people that read these topix threads?
