just in todays news is federal funds to VT for:
heating
schools
trains
roads
trucking

just a reminder: a government big enough to give you everything you need is also big enough to take everything you have.

this is your money returned to you with strings attached!

Corporations are creations of the state and work hand and hand with the government.

Corporations would not exist in a free market.

Yes yes very good. Congress has discovered that those without heat cannot write checks to pay their bills with frozen fingers. Stay warm everyone and Merry Christmas to you.

You supposedly make a "Freudian slip" and have the audacity to make a childish insult?

Typical, yet pathetic.

Is it possible for your to even write coherently? Probably not since you were more than likely "educated" in a government school and have the IQ level equivalent to average room temperature.

I'm sure you will just respond with more childish ad hominem attacks.

Dial 911 and report child abuse, some nice people will be right over to help. Give you a nice warm cop car ride to jail and your kid a ride to a warm place to live.

"as Juan Williams pointed out in his powerful book, "Enough," there exists a formula that is so effective at combating poverty that researchers have created something akin to a "magic pill" for escaping poverty's grasp. The formula goes like this: graduate high school, get and keep a job, get married after finishing school and getting a job, and then, after age 21, begin creating your family. The poverty rate for any black man or woman who follows that formula is 5.8 percent. For whites itÂ’s slightly less effective (7.8 percent)."

for married-couple families the poverty rate rose from 5.5 percent in 2008 to 5.8 percent in 2009. But that baseline poverty rate pales in comparison to the rate for female-householder-with-no-hus band-present families, which in 2009 stood at 29.9 percent, up from 28.7 percent in 2008.

Once again you prove me right. Typical.

You were the one who said your government was racist, and then tried to squirm your way out of it.
