    Segregating and creating class warfare is the democratic way. Spend the money to help people get out of government housing by teaching them the skills and knowledge to be self sufficient less of a parasite. This housing money doesn’t help people to be self supporting.

    will doesn’t know what he’s talking about. but that’s okay — most right-wingers don’t.

      brilliant response, Lawrence. speaking of not knowing what you’re talking about (or should I call you billy).

      You’re absolutely right, will. And how is taking MY tax money and handing it away to others “improving the quality of life” for me and the other taxpayers who, as usual, must do without SOMETHING in the name of redistributionism and socialism.

      5 years in the White House and still very little positive economic news, a DECREASE in the openness of the administration, and in INCREASE of overbearing, tyrannical government. Nice job, voters (especiallly libs like Lawrence/fred/billy)

  3. Connecticut is circling the drain

    When it comes to redistributing money we dont have for votes, you cant beat a liberal.
