Well, it is about $1.1 million they're saying.   That can buy a hell of a lot of traffic cones.

You know, you're right. I'm going to make sure when I get my shopping done, I'm going to make sure I get candy and something that the kids can eat for actual food. Maybe granola bars?

Besides, it's just the next step in fulfilling Agenda 21.

Obummercare is not registering innocent Americans.  If you don't sign up they throw you in prison using the IRS as their thug enforcement.  And that database will be used to track everyone.

And now that the liebruls have shut down the government (except for Moochelle's "you must drink water" indoctrination site) they have blocked access to all our most important national monuments and symbols.  They don't want God fearing Americans who still believe we can get back the country that was stolen from us from using our most sacred symbols as rallying points and places when the revolution begins.

And I fear we may be too late to do anything about it.  An internationalized Marxist Utopia in eight short years.

Wherever orange cones exist, humans steer well clear of them, whether in their mobile conveyances or on foot. In fact, they slow down when passing them, almost to give homage, then speed up after clear.

Clearly the humans fear the cones for some reason. The cones hold some kind of power over them, as humans in their mobile conveyances could easily destroy the cones if they chose. The only ones that do not show fear are the young and/or inebriated among them. This fear must be deeply psychological in some way, and could be exploited for the Lizard people's gain.

That's willful misrepresentation of Holy Scripture and you libtards know it.  You do realize that you are guilty of blasphemy, and will burn eternally in Sheol while the righteous laugh as you writhe in agony amidst the flames and worms and gnashing of teeth?

What really happened is that Republican Jesus attached a rider to a Roman Aqueduct Maintenance appropriations bill, which hired a food service contractor to feed the 5000 with Roman army surplus loaves-and-fishes MREs.  The contractor just happened to be owned by a major donor to Republican Jesus' campaign.

As a Christian, I feel the need to put out the actual quote. Perhaps some of those who have clearly lost the path of decency and human kindness will find it again, but greed is a pretty powerful force indeed.

Matthew 25:35-40

35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

2013-10-07 12:00:16 PM  
Here's the part that gets me.  FTA:

Federal officials have told state welfare directors that they could use alternative sources of funding during the shutdown to keep assistance programs funded, and they will be reimbursed when the federal government re-opens.

This means that Arizona will get back any money they spend on the people that need it most, which means it costs them nothing aside from temporarily making some budget changes.  However, despite this, Jan Brewer has decided that the Arizonans most in need should bear the brunt of this.

I would relish in how this makes Republicans look like the petty oligarchs that they are - keeping a public park is essential when you can have a photo op with a WWII veteran but letting a poor child go to bed hungry is just swell - and how it looks to the undecided voters and conservatives sick of what their party has become and laugh with glee at the political suicide that the Republicans are doing right now, and how said suicide just might allow for Democracy to work again and for policies that, in my opinion, are better for this nation to be adopted with less nonsense to deal with.

But then I remember that there is a child going to bed hungry.  And I don't care about any political gains that my side might see.  Because I don't want that kid to go to sleep hungry just so political points can be scored.

Which is the difference between Republicans and myself.  They see no problem doing bad things to good people if it they think it will advance their agenda.  The fact that they do it even when there is evidence that it might backfire and advance a different agenda shows that they are not only mean-spirited, but also none too bright.

For Gods sake.....if you're not white and rich you need to get the fark out of that state.

Maybe we need to set up a charity to relocate willing citizens "targeted" by the State.

"For $2.50 a week, the price of a cup of coffee, you can move the Winslow's from their Section 8 apartment in the middle of this god-forsaken desert into a state where they can receive their food stamps, get a fair shake on taxes and enjoy a variety of weather conditions."
