For every sharpton on our side (and I'm no fan of his), you people have a limbaugh, a robertson, a coulter, etc. So you might want to notch down the self-righteous rhetoric.

Heart of Jesus.
Have mercy on us.
Lamb of God
Jesus
Have mercy on us.
You have given us bread from heaven.
One God forever and ever.
Amen.
`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.

Two, because someone Joe Schmoe, who could very well be an ACTOR says so, is not proof.

Three, I find it very interesting that they mention that in NINETEEN NINETY-SIX, there were more regulations, but that Obama got rid of those in TWO THOUSAND AND NINE. What happened to the intervening years? If it were a legitimate claim, they'd have been able to say that in TWO THOUSAND AND EIGHT it was different.

Use some damned logic for a change, and stop believing everything you see from a source just because you agree with them in general politically.

I think moms with young children should stay home and care for them no matter what their finances are.
Perhaps during those years they could apply for grants and loans and get some schooling. There is always a way to better yourself abiet hard.
Okay, so she's getting loans and grants for school, yet she's supposed to stay at home and take care of her kids?

You DO realize that not ALL programs allow you to take classes online, right? Do YOU want a nurse taking care of you who has never been in a lab or clinical setting?

And what, in the meantime, is she supposed to do to feed her children, clothe her children, have a roof over her head?

And how many people like you would rant and rave over the fact that she's getting assistance, yet can pay for the internet in order to DO classes online, IF she can?

You people just don't think things through.

Reminds me of the ones who declare the Old Testament the 'Jewish' part of the Bible...that the 'old laws' no longer apply, because Jesus brought the New Testament to Christians...but cling fitfully, crab-like, to one verse in Leviticus for the basis of their homophobia.

Syria: U.N. chemical weapons team comes under sniper fire
By Frederik Pleitgen, Hamdi Alkhshali and Ben Brumfield, CNN
updated 7:14 AM EDT, Mon August 26, 2013


STORY HIGHLIGHTS
An explosion occurs near the site U.N. inspectors want to visit
Ban Ki-Moon: chemical weapons use is crime against humanity
Syrian government to allow U.N. inspectors access to site after long delay
U.S. bulking up naval presence near Syria

Damascus, Syria (CNN)--[Breaking news update 7:13 a.m. ET]
Sniper fire hit a vehicle used by a U.N. chemical weapons investigation team in Syria multiple times on Monday, according to the United Nations. The team "returned safely back to the government checkpoint," a U.N. statement said. The team is replacing the vehicle and will return to the area, it said.

U.N. chief: Chemical weapons use in Syria must be punished

++++++

==========
Related to the above report, it is useless for UN inspectors to be in Syria.

UN chief could be disposed and asked to step aside immediately, as people worldwide do not want any harms and destruction imposed on them.


Because there are those who fall in the prey and scheme of chemical weapons usage, the Muslim rebels already have chemical weapons usage and stage orchestration of using chemical weapons to poison others to make the show, so that others would go for falling into the trap, in order that western forces might get into the prey.
The number of people who really die from chemical weapons is just a number as how they make it up and call such number, yet it is small make-up number RANGING FROM 100 TO A FEW HUNDRED, compared to the overall larger number of tolls

THIS IS HAZARDOUS when UN inspectors are in Syria, as rebels might/would further poison others behind inspectors' back, so that they can stage further falsehood.
If Syria regime would use chemical weapons before, there is no case that they could come up with substantial facts and evidences to prove it.
If few die in the internal civil unrest for so long in Syria due to chemical weapons, one does not expect that many people would die from chemical weapons if the unrest goes on.

But the bottom line is that if any military action were into Syria, the large scale of devastation warfare to a lot more civilians being killed would be very destructive from the beginning to the final end. The important factors are that Western forces might not be capable of overcoming the unpredictable damages if military action were taken, facing world non-allowance and disputes. Yet, the course for this very large scale of action might lead to making another troublesome current Iraq-like situation of bigger than Iraq with very high costs of US lives and resources for long, but definitely world tension and antagonism toward US would rise, with disputes and bickering among UN members and global backlashng, as this must be rejected and deterred.

There are no merits but all damages by falling into the trickery prey of insurgent rebels and others in orchestrating to start with--it needs to stop those by now.

THEREFORE, UN IS DESTRUCTIVE IN ITS ENDEAVOR SO FAR BY FALLING INTO THE TRAP. It is better for UN inspectors to leave Syria at once, so that rebels can no longer make up falsehood. As Long as people do not get tricked by rebels, then the constructive way is to view and deter rebel groups as they cause lots of people destruction and damages by making people of the world doing very destructive things to themselves, and UN as well, and this is destroying global people's lives and resources worldwide.

UN chief must be disposed and asked to step aside immediately if he still puts inspectors in Syria and continues with the jargon of chemical weapons, as people worldwide do not want any harms and damages imposed on them.

As a block grant to the states, TANF sets federal goals such as ending dependence of needy
parents on government through work and job preparation, gives states flexibility in program
design to achieve those goals, and measures the performance of states. The work requirements
that actually apply to recipients are determined by the states, not by federal rules. In FY2009, a
monthly average of 42% of all work-eligible adults were either working or engaged in a job
preparation activity. The most common activity was working in a job while remaining on the
rolls. This was followed in turn by job search and vocational educational training as the second
and third most common activities.

Do you have to participate in a work or training activities to be eligible for food stamps?

With certain exceptions, people who get food stamps may be required to work or participate in a training program. These requirements apply to able bodied adults between 16 and 60 years of age who are not living with dependents. If you do not meet these work requirements you can only get food stamps for 3 months every 3 years. You can also be denied food stamps if you quit a job without good reason or refuse a job offer. If participation is not mandatory, you can voluntarily participate and then you may be eligible to receive certain special allowances, such as child care and transportation benefits.

It doesn't look like working or actively looking for work is required.

Actually she could take her prerequisite courses, English, History, Math, Biology, etc on line so that when her children are in school she would be ready to take her clinicals.
