You mean the city council that did not fund codes inspections because they spent the money on a swimming pool and moving the Spain house? Or buying the salvation army building or the apartment complex and Trace Inn?

60% of children born in MS are born to a single parent that is most likely in poverty. We have illiterate children having children they can not afford. Why was the family not at home having dinner together? The culture of quality of life has been altered by consumer marketing as the real values never taught or experienced.

The parents have a huge responsibility and few that are having sex understand that. Government handouts made it easy to ignore.

Employers enjoy having single mothers on their payroll. Those women are desperate for any work at any wage at any time. The Republican's gave the fast food industry the Earned Income Tax Credit to subsidize the starvation wages they pay and then want to convince us the checks are socialist entitlements.

Raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour and require time and a half for all Sunday work. Wouldn't that be the "Christian" thing to do?

"Raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour and require time and a half for all Sunday work."

How about no minimum wage and no welfare or government support. Let people figure out how to survive. It would bring about many creative ideas and thinking rather than a lock step mindless willingness to be a slave. The consumer should think before spending their vote for a lifestyle that brings misery to those that are serving them.

The family was not home having dinner together as the child's mother was working her shift in huddle house. None of us know why he was with her, but my guess would be she had to bring him with her. Stop being so judgemental of everyone, everyone has their own crosses to bear and now this poor mother has another one. Just for once anon please just sit back and be quiet. A child died, the mother shouldn't have to read this stuff.

Were you perhaps fired from the city council at some point in time? You seem to rage about them fairly regularly.

The corruption in Tupelo is beyond imagination. The population are sheep that are controlled by the CDF,Create mafia. The city council is mostly in their pocket. The same law firm handles both them and the city. This is a conflict of interest. How could I get fired if I do not work for money.

So, what "percent " do I fall in Anon? I was MARRIED and had a planned pregnancy, which resulted in the birth of my beautiful and intelligent 15yr old. I HAD to leave my marriage bcuz it was UN the best interests of my child--that was 14 years ago. I'M NOT RECEIVING THE COURT ORDERED CHILD SUPPORT MY CHILD MY CHILD NEEDS AND I'M NOT RECEIVING ANY TYPE OF WELFARE OR ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE FROM THE STATE OF MS. MY EX HUSBAND-THE ONE WHO OWES MY CHILD 14 YEARS OF BACK CHILD SUPPORT IS ON WELFARE. HE GETS FOOD STAMPS. He is not disabled. He is LAZY!!! His parents support him and his "habits". They are a well known family from north Lee county and quite well off. They have the financial means to help me financially on a regular basis, but it isn't there responsibility. HOWEVER, if I do NEED help financially for something related to their ONLY LEGITIMATE GRANDCHILD, I do believe it is their duty to take up the slack for their only child---my child's father. If they can spend $50 A month having a dog groomed, well I just think my straight A making,National Honor Society,Beta Club child that I RAISED deserves to have food, shelter-where she has a bedroom-, and clothes that FIT her...and since winter is here she also needs new SHOES. NOT FLIP FLOPSL!!!!

First you picked to have a life long partner and child. It is your responsibility to make it work. It is not the Grandparents responsibility to support their own child or a grand child after 21. We do not choose family but we choose partners. It is also hard work making a relationship work and your are responsible for making both parents be supportive of the child's life. Breaking the partnership means yo failed and on top of that you broke it without a plan to make being single work. Stop blaming others for your actions. Life is not all about being deserving. Winning awards does not make life good. Doing what you are told will win awards even when they tell you to kill. You are spoiled and not very creative. Stop the hate and get on with your life.
