T.M.S.: My friends's wife works for a charity in MD. I won't say which but it's a big one that tends to focus on Jewish issues.

The woman that runs the branch of this charity (my friends's wife's boss) is a busy socialite and is never around. Recently, when they were acepting applicants for a lead position at the charity, the boss never bothered to read any of the resumes.

She hired a mentaly retarded woman to a six figure management position.

They can't fire her now but it matters little. Aparently only about 10% of the money they raise go to the needy.


That's nothing. I know of a country who elected a mentally retarded man to president. Twice.

Bob Mugabe turned Zimbabwe from a net exporter of food to a starving hellhole. And look, we did that too.

You would think someone who runs a design studio could find someone to do that for him.

But no...

corbell: You can argue semantics all day long. But do it with Tatsuma or czarangelus.

That isnt semantics it is you misclassifying tax monies as "not taxes" to suit your purpose. Except for entertainment value you might as well be czarangelus or Tatsuma.

rancid weasel Are you insane? Liberals all live in places like Chevy Chase, Bethesda, and Arlington, VA. I'd be surprised if 10% of the people in B'more were politically active.

The whole state of Maryland is screwed up because the Washington suburbs like Chevy Chase and Bethesda have enough votes to tax the rest of the state and send the money to their libtard projects.

mistergecko: Are admins allowed to fix typos?

Yes they are, but it would take a legion of them to patrol the threads.

As long as "teh" is considered as acceptable spelling, who the hell cares?

The only thing that matters is, did you get your point across?

Dear spelling/grammer/typo nazis,

NOBODY GIVES A SHIAT THAT MISS CRABTREE JUST GAVE YOU AN "A" IN ENGLISH!!!

Actually, nope, I suppose I'd think that someone who runs a design studio could crop a picture himself...or be able to have it done otherwise.

Does anyone else find it humorous that there's almost as many grammar nazi's as there are people talking about the damn article?

Like, one or two people mentioning something is fine, anyone who says something after that is just retarded. Get over it for christ sakes.

Gee, and where do you think the Federal government gets it's money from? A magic money tree out behind the capitol building? Or TAXpayers?

"No tax dollars are used" is simply propoganda that doesn't match the facts.
 
2008-03-16 05:07:54 PM  
Wait. Were these criminals given money for being victims of a crime or committing the crime? If they commit the crime in question then you obviously shouldn't get shiat. But if they are innocent bystanders of whatever crime is being commmitted and are injured then they deserve this money as much as you or I or any other innocent person.

tonesskin: 40oz_A_Knight: fark that. If you commit a violent felony you should get nothing, ever. Most of the recipients of this $1.8 million should die of AIDS.

So some of the 2526 people who have no criminal record should die of AIDS? Because that would be "most" of the recipients. Where did your stupidity come from? Genes? Talk radio? Head injury?



He did say "violent felony". Did you miss that part? I'm pretty sure that's what he was talking about.

And I agree. Many of these people are repeat offenders. Just because they're in between crimes they're "reformed" and should be able to tap these funds? Fark that. I live in MD and will be happy to vote for candidates that promise to limit dispensation of these funds to ONLY people who haven't been convicted of violent crimes.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the river, Arlington and fairfax make all the money, but Richmond takes it for the farmers on southern VA. Anyway, who do you think makes the money in MD? Bethesda ain't exactly cheap.

It's only a tax if you habitually get caught speeding and running red lights.

Not all drug dealers, gang members and sex offenders are violent. Their famillies shouldn't be branded as criminals either.

I write a "most" where I should have written "some" and your tampon explodes. Get a grip.

It;s not a charity, iut's a government program designed to help compensate crime victims. A very noble cause. However, in maryland, as I'm sure in other states, many crime victims were once criminals. So it should come as no surprise that a program designed to help crime victims will help ex-criminals. A crime victim is a crime victim and many ex-criminals who are crime victims will probably be less liley to ahve insurance and other finacial means and thus will need the sid.

Holy farking shiat. I'm from Baltimore and the CICB gave the Johns Hopkins Hospital 12 grand to pay for my medical expenses when I was run over by a truck four years ago.

Cause Lillian Antoinette Smith saw me lyin' in the street, a-hollerin' on accounta my leg bone's exposed, and like a criminal, she drove away never to be seen again.

I'm one of the few citizens of Baltimore that is not a criminal. Drug warrior, persnaps, but criminal? No.
