Read closely, the card was rejected for the brake parts or anything else in an auto parts store. You cannot use E B T cards to buy auto parts. If I understand it correctly if you are a retailer your total sales have to be a certain percentage of grocery items in order to accept E B T cards.
I work at a large auto parts store. I had a lady buying brake pads hand me her E B T card for payment. After informing her the card was for food purchases only she told me it was a cash loaded card and to "try it anyway." I did, it was rejected and she had to pay for her auto parts with cash. So for all you womb to the tomb welfare recipients, don't bring your
E B T cards to the auto parts stores. It is one of the few places that cannot accept it...for now!
If Stormin Norman were in the white house right now we would have a dead man there but he would likely make better decisions than the current occupier of the white house.
As a Miller County resident I must say that I am very happy with the governor's decision. These school board members have been thumbing their noses at the public for quite some time now with an attitude of we will do what we want, when we want, and we don't care about proper procedure during meetings.
Many times closed sessions have been called during meetings to discuss and handle business that should have been open for public input. Now can we please look at the current superintendent. He does not even live in Miller County but is making decisions and policies that affect the entire school system and county. Hopefully with this move by the governor he (superintendent) will soon join the other puppets that he controlled and Miller County can move forward and give our students the education that tax payers are paying for.
Thank you Governor!!!
If Ms. Riggins has difficulty understanding the proper procedure for filling out a relatively simple form to qualify her kids for free lunches then how can she be trusted to understand complex documents that require her input on school matters as she serves on the School Board? Even the uneducated welfare sows know all the requirements of manipulating questionnaires and outright lies necessary to continue to feed at the public trough.
Albany Georgia, you have a mess with all these immoral people in leadership positions. I can see why any decent, honest person with high morals would be looking to flee Albany as I did.
Ms. Obama, Your husband may be just like some people but he is definitely not like me.
First and foremost I am a God fearing Christian, I honor those in the military who fight for my freedom, I am against the killing of the unborn, I recognize Israel as God's chosen people, I love this country and it makes me sick what your husband is doing trying to make into a socialist handout Godless government controlled nation. So Ms. Obama, your husband is not just like me and I resent your insinuation that he is.
As is the case in a lot of these types of stories religion and Christianity has been brought into it. Please allow me to clarify a few things: When a person chooses to become a Christian and follow God they are setting a standard in their lives to follow the path of truth and righteousness which is a standard in today's society that many choose to ignore. I am not saying that every Christian succeeds at this 100% of the time, however if they are a committed to Christian values this is their goal. The key word here is forgiveness.
I can assure you that there has only been one to live amongst us without sin and He died so that our sins can be forgiven. Even people with a strong Christan Faith will fail from time to time. It is because we all posses a sinful nature. Christians recognize this and their goal is to stand strong and resist the temptation of the enemy and ask for forgiveness when they fail. Christians are not "better" than anyone else but rather recognize the need to try and live a life that is pleasing to God.
Unfortunately for Ms. Riggins she yielded to the temptation, broke the laws, and now has to face the consequences of her decisions. Whether she has a strong faith or no faith at all she did wrong and will be forced to suffer the consequences of the judicial system.
Hopefully if she is a woman of Faith she will recognize the error of her ways, accept the punishment, and grow from her shortcomings. If she has sincerely asked her Heavenly Father to forgive her He has. Now she must deal with the laws of the state and fulfill their obligations as it pertains to her misgivings.
I would be interested in knowing Mr. Murfree's opinion as to why he thinks so many students are being home schooled. As a non connected citizen to any political position or other special interest group I would suggest that the increasing number of home schooled students is a direct result of a failed school system and it's inability to adequately educate students. Should not parents who are genuinely concerned about the education of their children have the option of choosing the method of how that education is obtained? I applaud parents who make the sacrifice of home schooling their children. They have realized what a dysfunctional entity the public schools system has become with blatant corruption and teacher's unions dictating how our children are educated. I would suggest that Mr. Murfree will have a difficult time convincing any responsible parent who is home schooling to return that student back into the battlefield which the public school system has become.
Lets see, air fare to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso booking a month in advance costs a minimum of $4,800. Of course lodging and food will be additional and I would be willing to wager that people who hold the positions of these 3 ASU officials will be staying in expensive hotels and eating expensive meals. I doubt there are any Super 8 hotels and McDonalds restaurants in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Consider too that a passport is required that I am sure the expense for that was picked up by the taxpayers as well. Consideration also must be made as to who will fill the obligations and duties of these 3 professors while they are on this trip.
Ms. King-Jupiter says she is extatic about ASU being represented and anticipates being able to "leverage" the experience from this trip to benefit the teachers and students in southwest Georgia. Sounds to me that the leveraging began when the request for funds was made for this trip and approved! She references the struggle for a better education in south Georgia, I tend to think that struggle could be best addressed with all participants focusing on local solutions, staying in the immediate area, and let the Africans do likewise.
I am looking forward to seeing ASU become such an improved learning institution as a result of this trip...but I think I will be sadly disappointed.
