If the ones on SS and getting disablility don't get their checks every month CMI will have no choice but to shut down. They are funded and run on the state checks the people they care for get. Needless to say everyone there will be jobless and those people will be homeless. I was also told that several of their clients are being moved to another facility and if that's true a lot of people will be jobless

This is why the govt should NOT be in the economy.

The govt does not have to focus on basic business practices. Therefore, they will, sooner or later, have BIG problems.

And we are starting to see them now.

SO...if you have been enjoying a "job" at some govt. agency...or at a business that gets all its business FROM the govt....then, well, it's time to pay the piper.

Next time, try to get a job some place that is NOT dependent on the govt for most or all of its income.

Its almost like being a check-drawer, just one step away.

Does that mean if you are a Doctor that accepts TennCare or a store that accepts food stamps, its time to "pay the piper"? Or if you are a home health nurse, you should be without a job? I HATE those among us that live off the government that do not need it, but the truly disabled, my daughter is in a wheel chair, and the elderly, my mom only draws what she PAID in, don't deserve the help? Should we give our children to rich families if they are born disabled. Should we kill off the elderly and the younge if they are unable to be productive members of society? What is your solution? No, the government should not be responsible for our bad luck but they put themselves in that position when they started taxing us FOR WORKING. We (myself included) work 40 hours a week and then send them money so they can pay their bills. On top of that, we send them money every time we buy groceries, gas, medicine, homes, cars, etc. If they decide to quit helping those that need it, then we should be able to bring home a FULL paycheck and live just fine. If my husband and I brought home two tax free checks every week and could pay for untaxed food, gas and utility bills, we would have about $50.00 more a month than we now have with my daughters disability. Do the math, you will see that taxes(if you work and don't get foodstamps)on everything you earn and buy in a month is a full paycheck. Again what should we do with those that cannot do for themselves? Pull a Casey Anthony?

You said it ALL right there. If the govt did not TAKE so much...there would be much more available for people to provide for themselves...even when problems would unexpectedly arise.

Your mom (who is retired now, I assume)....and getting back ONLY what she paid in...(well, shes actually NOT getting back what she put in...that was spent on PORK along time ago...the govt SPENDS SS tax money on other things as soon as they get it...it does NOT go in an account.)

If your mom HAD been allowed to put that money in her own investment account...she would be living much, MUCH better now (even with the ups and downs of the stock market).

You see, the problem with the govt TAKING so MUCH money from us...then THEM deciding how it is used later...means that much LESS gets spent on the problem to begin with. When, say,$10 of tax money goes to the govt...they start taking cuts from it to pay the people in the govt jobs to PUSH PAPERS AROUND....that sucks of 6, 7, 8 dollars worth of that original $10...just to move it around.

By the time they "graciously" give it back....that $10 is now $2...after they take out all of the "handling fees."

----------
SO...I REPEAT:

The govt should NOT be involved in the economy...they don't have to stick to good business practices.

Because they are SO involved...you have to depend on them to simply give you your own money back (after taking their HUGE cut out of it).

And your mom has to worry about her "check" and get all worried about politics....rather than feeling more free in her retirement years...like she COULD HAVE...if the govt had not TAKEN so much of her money to being with.

THAT's the solution. We can VOTE FOR people who plan to do just that....allow us the have TRUE retirement accounts (rather that a SCAM)....and those who want to take less in PAYROLL taxes.

But what have so many people done? They have put people in office who simply promise to give them CRUMBS....keeping them stressed out and worried about politics for their very subsistence.

About like looking for "Weapons of mass-destruction", that never existed! Thank you President Bush, for an expensive war that will cost us for years to come. I would say he was a joke but 18 year old boys with legs blown off just ain't funny.

thousands of people in Iraq was MURDERED. How? VX bombs. Who did it? Sadam. What would you consider a WMD? A bomb that can kill thousands where they stand? VX Bombs. Who had them and used them? Sadam. Just because they never found them doesn't mean they didn't have them. The question we should be asking is where are they now?

Yes, indeed where are they? Do You know? Why was the only flight alowed in the air during the 911 grounding of all air traffic, the flight with Osama Bin Lauden's family?

Terrorist are flying planes into buildings, and former President George Bush is reading "kiddie garder books" in Florida. He is told what is happening, and he keeps on reading! It is not his fault however, He hasn't made it to the book entitled "The little engine that could". LOL I think I can.....I think I can.

George is all about oil, rich people and money. If he has to send poor, working class people into Iraq, to defend his and other rich peoples interests, then so be it.
