"These programs are intended for when life kicks us in the nuts..."
These words to ponder from Shane Kennedy--
Ha! People here saying Obama is 'too Liberal', when half of the Dems called him 'too middle of the road' during his campaign four years ago...
As well as claiming every person that receives family assistance is a lazy piece of shit.
Let me inform you numbskulls as to why these programs are in place. Five years ago my wife passed away as a result of a 1 in 3 million auto-immune disorder. Leaving me to raise our then 3 yr old child. I had to leave a great job making near six figures due to a lack of hours of availability as a single parent. We received EBT benefits, and Medicaid. After five years of bouncing from one employer to another, I have finally found an employer willing to work with MY schedule as to allow me to work full time, and sign on to the companies insurance.
These programs are intended for when life kicks us in the nuts, and we need a hand back to our feet. If your intention is to vote Republican, and effectively cut these programs in todays struggling economy, you had better pray to God nothing happens to you that may require you needing a helping hand.

2. I found the sign thought provoking, shocking me to reality
and it has truth in it.
Patience is a virtue...how many times have some us given up on someone or something to change our path and then live to regret it.
Obama was our hero, saviour, knight in shining armour...even up here on the north side of your border. I was feeling so low with all those crazy republicans coming out but this sign revitalized me into having hope again for you all.
This sign can be put onto any issue you are facing.
As for the Shane Kennedy story...I wonder too as there could be nannies hired with a 6 figure salary but it is commendable for him stay and be an at home dad...Do you think his child was molested by the baby sister?
Who is Shane Kennedy?
