Squawk of the Day - March 20, 2013

"So the fleecing of the Albany taxpayers continues. First it’s Cutliff Grove. Now ASU is getting the taxpayers, via the DCSS, to pay for renovating a building. First it was the Ray Charles bequest and now DCSS funds. Does the Board of Regents know what is going on?"

Squawker you're a day late and about $500,000 short.

Did you hear the one about BETHEL AME slash "AME Bethel Housing," which was certified as a Community Housing Development Organization just last week.

Anybody wondering why this country is going broke? Borrowing almost 3 Billion dollars PER FREAKING DAY more than we're taking in?? It's got to stop. It will stop one day. Will we have the brass balls and backbone to do it ourselves or will we wait until the world's economy collapses? I'd like to think the former.......but based on recent history I believe it will be the latter.

Got Prep? Be prepared for the latter. "A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished" Proverbs 22:3

The mind of a liberal: We will apply for a block grant for an urban housing development and build our poor a nice place to live. So this happens and the population in that region multiplies- then they build a school or buy many buses to move kids to the schools. Then the new found need for tax revenues take hold and so they raise property taxes or create a new splost to fund this dream. Then one day this liberal runs for office saying i helped build that- meanwhile all the kids in the run down housing are saying we need to get up out of the hood. But now we are blaming racism as the culprit for the hoods being mostly minorities when if fact it was the dream of the liberal that brought about this mass concentration of the people in the name of help. So ,in effect, it is the liberals who are sowing the seeds of racism but do not quite understand that they are in fact racist because that was never their intent. It is a vicious cycle that the liberals repeat over and over- meanwhile the people that inhabit these newly built subsidize federal housing programs are lost as to why it is always me that is stuck in the hood- so they branch out and some become liberal politicians that repeat the same cycle all over again. On the other end is the working class who is being taxed to poverty to pay for anyone and everything- but when this person needs uncles Sam, He says " you don't Qualify '

Warren Buffet is an Obama supporter. The fact that he is making millions per day hauling oil in his trains probably has something to do with it. When he passes his fortune is going to the Bill Gates foundation, so he won't pay any taxes. This is typical of the vocal liberals they support taking your money, but keep your filthy hands off of mine. The true blue liberal actually believes all of that fantasy that democrats spout. To each according to their need, from each according to their ability. Ustaknow has it right in that if you do not believe or at least go along with all the liberal giveaway crap then you are a racist. I see signs that game is drawing to a close. The world is becoming more transparent. It is harder to hide fraud. Fraud in almost all government programs is being revealed to enough tax payers and they are getting raw around the edges.

Tip of a very lurge iceberg my friends. But as the saying goes, "You ain't seen nothing yet!". DCED is a time bomb, ticking away Albany's future as those who pay to support the rape wring their hands and say "Oh woe is me" before turning back to the telly to watch "The Biggest Loser".

There is an old Pennsylavania Dutch Saying about Politicians. Translated it says; "What is yours is also mine, and what belongs to me is none of your business!" I don't know how old that saying is, but it sure is to close to the truth.

I just wonder how we have come this far. A pole tax is what is needed now. Forget ID's. Make it $50 and this will eliminate most of the freeloaders and what. This should at lease be charged to vote in the federal elections. Local elections should be free because these actually affect more people than federal elections. This would stop a lot of buying of votes too.

Pole taxes are for strippers and hookers.

Sorry folks, but the best squawk was about the sign at the gun show. "If you voted for Obama we will not sell you a gun. You ain't smart enough to own one."

All of this and no one has questioned DCSS about the missing dollars from the school lunch program. They tell the media to stop talking about it in hopes that everyone will just forget and the poor tax payers of Dougherty County will just keep paying and not ask any more questions.

Dougherty County doesn't have anyone that does "investigative reporting" either in the print or broadcast media. They just tell us what happened yesterday or today and don't go any deeper. What we need is a 60-Minutes or 20/20 style investigation going all the way back to the '70s about these church-affiliated "housing and poverty" non-profits to see where the money went.

Next you could expand it to investigate and report "how much Federal money comes into Dougherty County for the "poor" and where does it go?" Include HUD, FDA, Department of Agriculture, food stamps, earned income credits tax rebates, "loans", grants, etc. That's just the "over the table" money. But don't wait for CBS or ABC to work on that one....it doesn't fit the slant they wish to portray to the American public.

What would we find? We would find that trillions and trillions of dollars have come into Dougherty County alone and that poor folks are pretty much right where they started. Or maybe worse off.

Do any of you have a solution? Especially you, ustaknow. What did you used to know? Did you know the solution? If so, please share. Sister_, where did that money go? Drop the networks a line...you won't know unless you try!!

Will the poor just die if they can't make it on their own-sleep outside, eat from the garbage cans or rodents, gnats and mosquitoes, kids can't go to school because the school requires a uniform that they can't afford; the working class dies because at minimum wage, the family of four is eligible for assistance but they can't afford the costs AFTER insurance runs out, the middle class dies because they have no one to cut the lawn, take care of their kids, so they have to quit working so they start eating in and the restaurants begin to fail but have some assets so that disqualifies them from food stamps, the upper middle class no longer has customers or patients so it won't be long before they die. The uber rich will have no one to buy computers, no one to use them, no stocks to trade, no Wal-Mart to own. Who's living?

No one...it will just a matter of time before America collapses from within as everything is connected.No matter what is done, pray if it makes you feel better or righteous, the republic has fallen.
