It's amazing that when I returned here a couple years ago with my son and was trying to get medical assistant the Welfare Department was on my ass right away. They made sure they sent an investigating officer from the fraud department to see why I was applying but yet I've got a sister in law who collects ssi disability who obviously can get around with no trouble still uses a handicap placard card to park in a handicap parking space and no bothers to investigate her. It was obvious what you were trying to do dad by sending someone who was abusing the system in the same manner by having them park next to me and it was obvious this women had showing no tell tale signs of distress that she couldn't take the extra steps to walk a little further to get to her destination.
Everytime you men get your way the price of things increase like for example the cost of Cymbalta skyrocketed from 160.00 dollars to 230.00. This is going to continue everytime men like you and Manny get your way. I was told by a pharmacist that the longer a product is out on the market the price decreases but because these men have high stakes in the pharm industry you'll see the price dramatically increase.

The same with the cost of getting a liscense. When I had mine renewed and it couldn't have been no more then two years ago I spent 40 dollars for a renewal. I have been to the DMV just last week and it jumped by 20 dollars from what the lady behind the counter was telling me so now it's up to 60.
The previous governor who commenced after Spitzer was asked to resign was a better fit for the state of NY. As far as I'm concerned governor Cuomo is nothing but a bootlegging profiteer.
Then you wonder why people leave the state of NY in droves.

Who you callin' a bootlegging profiteer??? He didn't come here to get welfare (like you did) then bitch about state prices. You got some balls! This state will move when he tightens up more on the "entitlement" programs and gets you bootlegging profiteers the hell out of this state. Get a job!

I have lived here most of my life and only came back due to personnal reasons. I would not have come back if given more choices. Where is it stating that I was trying to get welfare. You must be Italian and stupid. Ask yourself first why there is a need for these so called entitlement programs. It's apparent you haven't been far from your cuckoos nest because downtown Niagara Falls is the biggest eyesore I've seen since I left two years ago.
Why is this city so reluctant to do anything about uptown and has only focused on developing the more prestigious suburban areas.
Where would you like for me to get a job in "Little Italy". I've got it on the corner of 18th and Walnut or better yet I'll take my business to the casino I'm sure I'll find some really desperate Johns there.

Just think when the economy tanks due to the sequester I'll still have my job. Now that's what I call security.

Just like Scarlet O'Hara I will be Gone with the Wind soon enough. Niagara Falls has been proven to be the nesting ground for idiots like yourself.
Keep my aging parents and their old tarnished ways of doing things. Keep the cost of living high with the stagnant low wages and I'm sure soon enough good ole suburbia will look just like downtown.

By the way I was trying to get medical assistant at the time for my son who had a health condition and nothing more.

Heres an example of why more people should be scratching their heads.
Just got a renewal letter from the state that I had moved from.
A total of 52 dollars which includes regristration and cost of keeping tags.
Recentally transfered everything over to NY state requirements at a whopping cost of close to 200.00.
Theres a cancer in the state of NY and it's relatively clear that it's a defective gene called greed.
Get rid of the under ground criminal organizations and maybe NY can be a place for all to live no matter your income status.

I'm tired of being told that I should keep things within reason I'm sorry but I though I was.
Don't tell me I should be grateful for what I have because what would that be. This is the third time I've lost everything and I'm expected at my age to just rebound from this.
