The Heritage Foundation put out a graphic showing that Gruber received $2,050,000 from the NIH, $1,737,000 from the Justice Dept., $1,600,000 from four States, $392,600 from HHS & $103,500 from the State Dept. This comes to nearly $6 Million. This is an example of crony-statism. Do you feel like you got your money's worth? or do you feel like you have been had?

Homes for Those Without a Place

And who is going to maintain these homes and keep them from turning into ghetto blight? Stop the criminals from taking advantage and taking over? Wasn't this tried in the 60's and 70's with urban renewal? We need changes in the way people behave, but the welfare state has torn down family, rewarded indolence, inculcated a sense of entitlement and victimization, and severed the ties of work and reward.

Best Townhall comment this week, Noah. I will only say the those who delay gratification and save for retirement ARE being punished through taxation to support overpaid bureaucrats and layabout marshmallow eaters.

What's even more stupid is thinking that the Democrats who voted for Cochran will vote for him in November.

And no one was saved.
As for the unemployed, a person who is unemployable at $7.75 per hour will still be unemployable at $10.00 per hour. A person employed at $7.75 per hour may or may not be employable at $10.00 per hour, yet the cost of everything will go up, making it harder to make ends meet. This is what is happening now to middle America--in 2005, I was better off with a wage of less than $2.00 per hour than I have now because prices and taxes were far lower. The only price I recall that was rising precipitously at that time were housing prices, which had little effect because I was paying off a fixed mortgage obtained in 1993.

I believe part of the 4th quarter increase is from bumper crops this year.
George Washington also issued a bounty to Hessian soldiers that defected--I believe it was worth about $700 and consisted of bounty lands in northern Virginia. About a quarter to a third of the Hessians took him up on the offer.
