Brawl At Social Services
Office Caught On Video

Fox2Now [St. Louis, MO], by Andy Banker

EAST ST. LOUIS, IL. – An alarming video of a Tuesday afternoon brawl at a social services office in East St. Louis had workers and clients concerned for their safety and brought calls for action. A witness told FOX2 it began as a dispute over a place in line. In spite of all the flying fists, there have been no arrests. Workers and clients said that had to change. State and local authorities didn`t know about the video until FOX 2 News alerted them. East St. Louis Mayor, Alvin Parks, called for metal detectors at office at 9th and Missouri.

East St. Louis is just another Detroit. If you get a flat tire there, you keep going, regardless.

And the Mayor of East St. Louis said: He said in today’s climate of mass shootings, such behavior was unacceptable, especially at a state office serving large numbers of people. That boy is obviously a product of public schools and a good reason to stop throwing money at them. That is the stupidest thing I´ve heard since that parasite Marian Barry said: "If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very very low crime rate." This is the outcome of decades of pandering to idiots.

Prepare for more of this as the government runs out of money, too. People get upset when you take away their free stuff. After they tear each other and the offices and hoods apart, that´s when they start heading towards your house.

This is why they want us disarmed, they see it coming, too.

A brawl over your place in line to get a handout you didn´t earn. A handout that originates from the government taking from those who have earned it but by law can not keep it.

In the sense of survival of the fittest if you win this fight you are first in line to receive stolen property. But because it is from the government it is legal.

What will happen when those that have earned it but can not keep it get into their brawling mood?

Hmmm, perhaps food stamps could be delivered personally to the "impoverished" and they could get them from the mailbox after they wake up at noon. That may avoid some "friction" between the obama-stash-takers, but I doubt it. BTW, those four unfortunate women look a lot stronger and healthier than most of the Senior citizens I know who are STILL working because they have enough pride to not want handouts. What a country!

Liberalism ignores the most basic thing.....human nature. Have you noticed that Democrats are most capable of recognizing the dark side of human nature when designing their political strategy but completely ignore it when implementing programs?

Last summer our government purchased huge quantities of ammunition. They claimed it was based on some kerfuffle at a social security office here in MA. I read nothing about the incident in our local news, but the government never lies.
Last summer, my husband and I visited the social security office to find out about registering for social security. We waited two hours with several other elderly couples. Young, able-bodied women, well dressed, loaded with gold jewelry and the latest iphones, paraded in and out of that office. Went immediately to the window, picked up something (I couldn´t tell what)then left in their expensive new cars. Us elderly finally left, un-served, because the office was closing. Not one elderly person was served while we were there but there were an awful lot of young women being served. I have no idea what was going on.

Hmmm. I retired out of the Metro area to rural Virginia. Couple of years ago went to the Soc. Sec office for registration. Surprise upon entering; Take a number [good idea], but the staff was behind bank like glass, with an armed guard. Also a gun free zone, in an area with 90 people per sq mile. Flashbacked back to DC Metro area.

The upside here is that the takers get to experience the same level of stellar government employee service that the rest of us get at the DMV, SS, etc.

One of the interviewees on local TV here in St. Louis was talking about how long the wait was and it was natural that tempers were flaring. Might be late for their weave appointment--gotta use the Obama-phone to tell her I´ll be running a little behind.

The caseworkers there are each responsible for over 1800 families/household apiece. Folks do sometimes have to wait hours to be seen but it seems that the fight was of a more intimate nature---seems that the women had been involved with each other and it didn´t end well.

Employers add 175,000 jobs in February,
unemployment rate rises to 6.7 percent

Posted By: MissMolly- 3/7/2014 9:03:44 AM     Post Reply
U.S. hiring improved in February from the previous two months despite a blast of wintry weather, likely renewing hopes that growth will accelerate this year. The Labor Department says employers added 175,000 jobs last month, up from just 129,000 in January, which was revised up from 113,000. The unemployment rate rose to 6.7 percent from a five-year low 6.6 percent. More Americans started looking for work but didn´t find jobs. That´s still an encouraging sign because more job hunters suggest that people were more optimistic about their prospects.

Not long ago, I made a marble pound cake. Marble pound cake requires making a vanilla batter, adding chocolate to half of it, and then swirling the batters together in a pan. This meant that once my loaf pan was in the oven, I had two bowls and two spoons coated in sweet, egg-y batter. I licked them all clean. Please don’t be alarmed by my lack of manners: I was by myself at the time. But, to be honest, I probably would have licked the bowl even if other people had been around. I always lick the bowl.

Vatican City - Pope Francis confessed Thursday that he took the rosary cross of his late confessor from his casket and wears it to this day in a fabric pouch under his cassock. He said he did so telling the late priest, "Give me half your mercy." Francis made the revelation Thursday during an informal chat with Roman priests about the need to be merciful to their flocks. He told the story of the "great confessor" of Buenos Aires who had heard confessions from most of the diocesan priests as well as from Pope John Paul II when he visited Argentina. When

New health insurance marketplaces signing

The new health insurance marketplaces appear to be making little headway in signing up Americans who lack insurance, the Affordable Care Act’s central goal, according to a pair of new surveys. Only one in 10 uninsured people who qualify for private plans through the new marketplaces enrolled as of last month, one of the surveys shows. The other found that about half of uninsured adults have looked for information on the online exchanges or planned to look. The snapshots from the surveys released Thursday provide preliminary answers to what has been one of the biggest mysteries since HealthCare.gov and separate state

New school lunch standards implemented as a result of First Lady Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign have led to more than 1 million children leaving the lunch line, according to a new report. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a wide-ranging audit of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act nutrition standards last week, finding 48 out of 50 states faced challenges complying with Mrs. Obama’s Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. The new standards led to kids throwing out their fruits and vegetables, student boycotts, higher lunch costs, and odd food pairings such as “cheese stick with shrimp” in order for schools to comply with the

Shocker: Federal government’s fiscal

In Fiscal Year 2013, the official federal deficit was $680 billion. Liberals have cheered this drop while subsequently ignoring how this deficit is both larger than all of Bush’s pre-recession deficits and is expected to grow dramatically over the next several decades. However, the Treasury Department’s annual report on the finances of the U.S. federal government shows that not only is $680 billion an incomplete measure of the federal government’s finances, it’s off by nearly a factor of five. From Just Facts Daily: The U.S. Treasury has just released its annual “Financial Report of the United States Government,” which provides an account of

Why the Tea Party’s Waning, Not Winning
National Review Online, by Michael Tanner    Original Article

As the Tea Party celebrates its five-year anniversary, many commentators are asking whether the grassroots anti–Big Government movement is still relevant. In some ways, this seems a silly question. The Tea Party has been enormously successful in changing the terms of the national debate on issues such as debt and spending. And, while its favored candidates have suffered some high-profile defeats, it has also won important victories. The Republican midterm sweep of 2010 would not have been possible without its energy and enthusiasm. Yet it’s also true that the Tea Party’s clout is waning. According to the most recent Gallup poll, just

Darrell Issa angrily adjourns Oversight

California Rep. Darrell Issa adjourned a divisive House Oversight hearing Wednesday after IRS official Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth Amendment and refused to answer his questions. “Seeking the truth is the obligation of this committee,” Issa said before announcing that he had no expectation that Lerner would answer his questions and adjourning the hearing. Lerner invoked the Fifth Amendment on each question Issa asked about the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. The hearing lasted approximately fifteen minutes before Issa released Lerner. Issa began the hearing by explaining that Lerner previously waived her Fifth Amendment rights in a May 2013 hearing and that “the

In the first test of the 2014 mid-term elections, voters in Texas stuck with their incumbent members of Congress, turning back almost every challenger in both parties, as Republicans shrugged off calls from within for major election upheaval in the U.S. House and Senate. The results in the Lone Star State were a setback for Tea Party groups that had hopes of recapturing their GOP primary energy of 2012 in Texas, when they unexpectedly launched Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to a U.S. Senate victory, as the GOP Establishment showed its strength with an easy Republican primary win by Sen. John Cornyn

So, Lois Lerner still won´t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn´t hard to figure out why Lerner´s lips are sealed. First, she knows the House of Representatives can cite her for contempt of Congress, but Attorney General Eric Holder would decide whether she is prosecuted on that charge. Lerner need not worry since President Obama has

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen.

McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers.

In a strongly worded letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), the Congressional Black Caucus called for Rep.

During the hour-long phone call, President Obama urged Russian forces to return to their bases. The White House said it hoped the crisis could be settled diplomatically and urged the Russian and Ukrainian governments to hold direct talks in an effort to find a settlement. The President called for an agreement which would protect the interests of both Ukrainians and ethnic Russians living in Ukraine. This was the second phone call between the two leaders in a
