TAYLOR, Mich. - A chaotic scene erupted at the Taylor Human Services Center when the crowd waiting for a Section 8 Housing voucher distribution got out of control. The center is located at Eureka and Lange Roads. That´s between on Eureka, between Beech Daly and Inkster. Police say thousands of people from all over the area were at the center. Many were homeless, single moms, or disabled. They were hoping to get help paying for their housing from the government. 7 Action News is being told there were 1,000 vouchers available and 5,000 people showed up trying to get one.
Comments: Change you can believe in . . . Not unlike the food lines seen in the former U.S.S.R.
Drudge has video with the story. Not all the people were black, one black lady said she came last night after work, apparently many of the people were elderly and/or disabled. I´m sure it was young Obama voters who caused the disturbance, but rather than show their innate violence it shows more the incompetence of the government in the way this was planned. Take care of the elderly and the genuinely disabled first next time, then let the parasites have what´s left.
No one is making fun of genuine disabled. They are mocking a government that is fostering dependency impossible to support. Single moms -especially the Baby Mammas- are being preyed upon by irresponsible males and a dem Party that wants to keep them dependent upon the government. Julia. As to the women with the oxygen tent- shouldn´t she have an appointment for housing? A cattle call is no way to distribute housing- it should be based upon age, health and need.
Judge Judy does cases from time to time where the plaintiff is receiving section 8 housing, and is suing various individuals for for non payment of rent. (section 8 pays the rent directly to the landlord. And it is illegal to rent out rooms in section 8 housing.) And Judge Judy gives an angry lecture to the plaintiff, under these circumstances, explaining that she (usually) is stealing money from the taxpayers. Other cases will have the defendant boyfriend being sued for various bills. Same deal.. illegal.
Easy #21. To ruin good neighborhoods and to motivate us to earn enough to move away from areas blighted by people who don´t care enough to work, keep up their dwelling or control their heathen offspring. And there are always heathen offsprIng.
What #13 and #14 said. Along with everyone who can see what is going on in this Country now that the obama-stash is on full display. BTW, the "crowd" was shown on local news and I didn´t see any "disabled" people waiting for help. As for that poor little person who said she was "freezing cold"? It was 60 degrees today and she was wearing a fur trimmed hoodie! Get serious..
Of course they rioted. They voted for NØbama with the understanding that they would keep on getting all the free stuff they wanted.
How dare NØbama not personally assure that there were enough free apartments (with free big screen TV´s, free cable, free electricity, free food delivered daily, free home visits by NØbamacare doctors, etc, etc, etc).
By God (or NØbama their true messiah), they DESERVE the free stuff!!! They ´´earned it´´ by being born here and being loyal Demon-RAT voters!!!!!
The population in MI is what you think it is, but let´s not be so cynical. We are suppose to be Christians.
There is a new poverty in this country like we have not seen for many years.
Some days I visit a prayer site and the situation in this country is bad. There are many praying for jobs, any job, or praying they aren´t laid off, or they can´t keep their small business open any longer. Others are in fear of being homeless because they can´t pay increasing rent or being foreclosed. They have used up all of their resounces for medical bills and/or basic needs. Many can´t afford to repair their vehicles to drive to work because they have been unemployed for so long. Some have to live with relatives that have no room for them. It´s very sad reading those annonomous prayers. They aren´t asking for handouts online.
The elderly and disabled cannot manage on Social Security anymore with increased costs of everything. Unfortunately, single mothers move to the first of the line- just because.
Instead of fighting for gov. handouts, these stupid "single pregnant women" need to either use birth control (now paid for by the taxpayers) or force their brats´ fathers to support them. Can´t feed ´em, don´t breed ´em.
Former President Jimmy Carter told NBC News on Monday that he places Nelson Mandela alongside Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Teresa as exemplars of inspiration and moral virtue in world history. In an interview with Brian Williams from Johannesburg, the 39th president said that Mandela belongs among figures to be looked upon “with a great deal of admiration.” “They weathered very difficult times, they came through with flying colors, they inspired other people,” Carter said. “I think that Nelson would go down in history as one of the leading people of the century.” Carter is in South Africa to attend a
Just in time for Christmas, a St. Louis company is promoting a coloring and activity book for kids about Sen. Ted Cruz. For $4.99, parents can order U.S. Senator "Ted" Cruz to the Future — which the Really Big Coloring Books company says is an "educational tool" to be used in schools. "He is a positive role model worthy of study in any school," says the promotional material for the coloring book. "All information is fact-based, evidenced in truth and is made available to the public." RBCB founder Wayne Bell touts the book in a YouTube video. The book includes biographical information on Cruz,
Despite being one of the bluest states in the country and one of the first to implement state based Obamacare exchanges, doctors in California are boycotting Obamacare...a whopping 70 percent of them. An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state´s Obamacare health insurance exchange and won´t participate, the head of the state´s largest medical association said. “It doesn´t surprise me that there´s a high rate of nonparticipation,” said Dr. Richard Thorp, president of the California Medical Association. Thorp has been a primary care doctor for 38 years in a small town 90 miles north of
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
“In 2003, Iran made an offer to the Bush administration that they would, in fact, do major things with respect to their [nuclear] program; they had 164 centrifuges. Nobody took that [deal] — nothing has happened.” – Secretary of State John F. Kerry, in an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Nov. 24, 2013 In making the case for the administration’s interim agreement with Iran on its nuclear program, Secretary Kerry has argued that it is important to make progress on rolling back Tehran’s nuclear program or else Iran will continue to stockpile nuclear material that may one day be used in a
The funeral service of Nelson Mandela could be a "trap" for Iranian President Hassan Rouhani because he could run into US President Barack Obama, a hardline Iranian daily warned Sunday.(snip)Hardline newspaper Kayhan warned in an editorial that if Rouhani attends it could bring him face to face with Obama, "head of the Great Satan government". "Some domestic and foreign media outlets are using the funeral ceremony as a pretext to push Rouhani towards a meeting with the head of the Great Satan government," Kayhan said. Rouhani, a moderate, defeated a pool of conservatives in a June presidential election after vowing to engage
North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s uncle — once considered the second-in-charge in the closed country and a key figure in his nephew’s rise to power — was dragged by police from a political meeting, the state-run media reported Monday. The state-run media outlet KCNA said the uncle, Jang Song Thaek, had “led a dissolute and depraved life” and had been dismissed from his political position because of corruption, womanizing and taking illegal drugs, NBC reported. “Jang and his followers committed criminal acts baffling imagination, and they did tremendous harm to our party and revolution,” KCNA reported, after the meeting of the Workers´
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
