Show me this ,show me that. Is this your idea of a discussion,trading links? How ever do you carry on a conversation offline? Do you walk around with a stack of old newspapers and an reference books?
It doesn't matter what the gov put down on paper to make it look good,those of us who work,witch does not include YOU, know better.
Hell the F-ing Nazi's made their Final Solution look good on paper too. Anyone with half a brain can write out some crap on a damn paper and clal it the truth. The problem has always been that stupid people like you, who never think for themselves, believe it.
The topic is the %4.5 million in added grants for NY food banks.

And here are some stats on your city. don't like where you live, quit belly dancing and get a real job.

Albany, NY (December 19, 2013)-

New York State’s unemployment rate decreased from 7.7% to 7.4% in November 2013, its lowest level since January 2009, according to preliminary figures released today by the New York State Department of Labor. In addition, the state’s economy added 4,300 private sector jobs, raising New York State’s private sector job count to 7,493,500 – another all-time high.

Since the beginning of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s administration, the New York State economy has added 380,400 private sector jobs and experienced employment growth in 30 of the past 35 months.

http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Alban...

It's one of many factors in a recent drop in violent crime in the most violent part of the city. In 2010, the west side of Arbor Hill had a combined average of 7.7 violent crimes — murders, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults — each month, more than three times the city average.

Albany Police Chief Steve Krokoff said the command center was more than a visual crime deterrent. Though often unoccupied, its cameras were always operating and, the chief said, it represented a more widespread, community-based effort to stop violent crime in the neighborhood. But it likely played at least a small role in chipping away at the neighborhood's violent crime rate, which plummeted 26 percent between January 2011 and July 2012, when the number of violent crimes fell to an average of 5.7 per month.

Data provided to the Times Union by the Albany Police Department show that in that same 18-month period, violent crime dropped 13 percent across the city. Krokoff is the first to admit that reasons for the precipitous drop extend beyond simply parking the command center in a crime-ridden area and more comprehensive work by his department.

Seems while there is crime, as there is in any city in the US, the violent crime rate is dropping.

Don't want anymore crime? Vote for the party that wants to create jobs. Vote for the party that will house the mentally ill in mental health facilities and get rid of putting them in overcrowded jails. Vote for the party that will work to make sure the poor have adequate housing.

There are solutions to the problems. Just whining about something never cured the problem, Pagan.

Benefits
Benefit level
Monthly maximum benefit for family of 32 $577/month (2005)
Annual maximum benefit for family of 32 $6,924/year (2005)
Earned income disregard for benefit calculation8 $90/month and 45% of remainder (2005)
Time limit on benefit receipt
Federal rules or guidelines1 There is a lifetime time limit of 60 months on a family''s receipt of federally-funded benefits, but states may exempt up to 20% of their caseload from this limit and/or use state funds to extend benefits.
Lifetime time limit9 None (2005)10
Benefits continue to children after reaching lifetime time limit2 Not applicable (2005)
Marriage incentives
Marriage incentives provided11 No (2003)
Sanction policies
First sanction2 Benefit reduced by pro rata portion until compliance (2005)12
Maximum sanction2 Benefit reduced by pro rata portion for 6 months or until compliance, whichever is longer (2005)12

The federal government sets basic rules for administering TANF cash assistance, but states have responsibility for developing their programs. Income eligibility limits and benefit levels vary widely. More than one-third of the states have an income limit of less than 50 percent of the federal poverty level, while in other states, families with earnings above 100 percent of the federal poverty level may qualify for benefits. Similarly, maximum benefit levels vary from less than $200 to nearly $1,000 per month for a single-parent family of three.

Ongoing requirements for TANF recipients also differ by state. Under federal rules, a portion of a state’s caseload must meet federal work criteria, or the state will lose some of its federal funding. The 2006 TANF reauthorization tightened federal rules in this area, but states continue to have flexibility in setting work requirements for recipients. In addition, the federal government has established a lifetime benefit limit of five years for most recipients, but states can establish shorter time limits or use state funds to extend the limit.

TANF cash assistance is funded through a combination of state and federal funds. The federal TANF block grant was created with the passage of the 1996 Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act that eliminated AFDC, the long-standing federal cash assistance program. Cash assistance is one of many supports for low-income families financed through this grant. TANF was reauthorized in February 2006 as part of the 2005 Deficit Reduction Act.

It's temporary...not for life.

What is wrong with people working for a living and not having kids they can't afford to raise?
More important question is what is wrong with a nation who won't have health care coverage for people with addictions and work to make sure there are a growing number of middle class jobs as there were in the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's?

probably all the clothes you are wearing and everything you plug in your house are not made in America. China holds our debt. what does that say.....why can't people afford clothing with the tag, "Made in the USA." While I am at it poor doesn't mean you have to ruin a part of the city...i.e., Arbor Hill.
...litter not even sweeping dirt from the sidewalk in front of your houses. Polish, Irish, German, Black people all lived together in Arbor Hill years ago and it was clean and respectable. We all got along...we all worked hard and had pride. we had strong work principles ....we took any work.

I like where I live just fine. I would rather be back in the Netherlands but that is not going to happen because my husband will not leave US.
I don't like giving my money to lazy people. There is no reason why they can't stop breeding and get jobs.

Belly dancing is a real job. It pays very well. You're just mad because you had to crawl back to your ex when all your gov freebies ran out and your SS wasn't enough. I do not see any reason why you can't work. In your pic you look healthy enough for it. That is why you are all for these gov handouts because you are one of the lazy with your hand out.

Exactly, Nina. I try to avoid Arbor Hill as much as possible but unfortunately it is not always possible.
They won't take any job now because the gov pays them not to.

There is now health care coverage.

You cannot go back in time. You can only move forward. Neither party is going to bring those factory jobs back. There are still other job and it is possible to create one's own work but that requires ambition and ambition is destroyed by too many handouts.
Stop paying people to do nothing and fr having kids they can't afford. I would much rather our tax money go to women and men who are in college and practicing birth control to help them out. Paying people to be ignorant breeders is wrong and messed up.

There is no reason for anyone to have a child they can't afford. None.

Lilith.........Reminds me of a certain couple out here. The girl had one kid, and was pregnant with another one in a years time, and had an abortion because she didn't want another kid so soon. Then, her boyfriend suggested that they have another kid so they could get a 3 bedroom apartment with washer/dryer hook-up, and that's exactly what she did. That little girl was born so they could get washing machine!( Hud only had washer hook ups in the 3 bedrooms, and you had to have an extra kid to get one )
This same lovely couple gets a lot of stamps and exchange them for drugs.....then beg for food the rest of the month because they know that family members will help because they don't want to see the kids go hungry.
The wonderful boyfriend also made the statement.....Now I'm not working at McDonald's flipping burgers....It's degrading! Yet it is honorable to steal and deal drugs, which is exactly what he does. That blew my mind when I heard he said that!
I feel sorry for those children, as I do all kids in a situation like this. All people like this should have their kids taken away and put in good homes. When these kids end up staying with parents like that, they usually end up just like them, because that is all they are taught to do, and it turns into an endless cycle. The mother was brought up to do drugs and steal, and that is the kind of person she turned into. A lot of people should not be allowed to have kids, and the kids who are born deserve to be put in a good home before their lives are ruined. It's a tragedy.
They have already taught their young son, who is around 5, to lie and used him to blackmail an uncle of hers.
It happens all the time and it is very sad that babies are born to take care f the parent's wants instead of parents taking care of their kids.

Did they name the baby Maytag or Kenmore?

Health care to cover addictions, Pagan. Are you being obtuse or don't you comprehend what is written?

Show me the money made by moms who have more than one or two children. PLEASE show me the duration allowed to collect these monies. She me how women are "rewarded" for having more children while on Tanif.

If you can't, then we know you just have a prejudice against helping women with children when their fathers won't. Just more support for the guys and throw the women and children to the curb.

Show me the jobs. Show me the unemployment rates. Show me the housing affordability with rent and mortgage costs. Show me the rehab centers available to drug addicts. Show me the incarceration rate.

I do not feel that I should pay for the F-Ups of other people.

We adopted a child who parents are seriously addicted to drugs. How many have you saved?

I do not have a prejudice against helping people, regardless of gender,race,religion, when they are making an effort to help themselves. But when they just want to leech off of me and carry on with their same destructive lifestyles then F that.
Those women are not stupid. They know to use birth control. They choose not to use it because they know that a kid equals a check,free rent, food stamps, medicaid,free phone, and who know what all else. That is not any incentive to work.

The people we are a talking about are not soldiers. They are drug dealing gangsters and their baby mommas. Most of em never had a job and do not want one. They are born,they breed,they get busted dealing or get shot, end up in prison. Get out and do it all over again until they die from violence of OD.

Cookie...please do not use the crutches...prejudice and race ... presenting your ideas. It does not help as people know who is abusing the system....by doing the same thing that holds them down...over and over. Very young boys impregnating many girls...as if this was a badge of honor. Many of these boys are not in a monogamous relationship with the girls.

You can't convince me you have a child, Pagan...you post here FAR too much to even have a job. And this is just ONE account you use.

You are REPULSED at thinking you could help people. It's the narcissism you've found in your satanism. You found a way to ONLY think of yourself and that reinforces your inability to care for others. Heaven forbid you do ANYTHING to help take drug addicts off the streets and make your streets safer for this alleged child you have. No, a mother would be FIGHTING to create a safe environment for her child. Not you. You love pointing fingers at others to make yourself feel as though you are somehow more superior to them...when you're not.
