OK, I don't feel good so I've spent the day on the computer & answered some questions today & looked at some of the other answers, I really don't understand why people say "the republicans want to help the rich??." Obama was plucked from virtual abscurity by Oprah, a very rich women who when she had the chance chose not to help American children but build an over the top school in Africa? I can understand if she wanted to help black youth, that's certainly her right but why not help children right here in America? Then we have his hate America preacher who owns a home that's worth over a million dollars & cars paid for by that racist church that Obama claims he never sat in during those hateful rants, the majority of his "supporters" are Hollywood millionairs & the like. Sen.McCain was not rich, his wife is, she was fortunate to have a father who worked very hard & left her an air to Anheuser Bush, they have a pre-nup. She also is to be commended as she has taken her priveledge & payed it forward, she visits other countries on a regular basis to help, not because a camera crew follows her (that's the only reason Obama went to Iraq, he was pressured to do so, he didn't visit the troops because the cameras were not allowed, an actual soldier who was there stated this) As a registered independent who loves my country, married to a teacher (obviously not rich!) will vote based on who I feel will keep us safe. I just wanted to ask why are so many Americans fooled by Obama? This man doesn't care about regular working people anymore then the greedy actors that support him. As a mom who watched the towers fall & the middle easterners celebrate the attack on America I can only hope we wake up & look at who really cares about us,the regular people in this country. Yes, Bush made mistakes, He was handed a country that was attacked 8 months after he was in office, if anyone thinks the terrorists planned & carried out this attack in 8 months should really think hard about that, If Obama is elected & after his rock star status fades who do you think he will really be looking out for? some fool he met on his way up or the ones who actually got him up there in the first place? Think about it. Also take into consideration that he hangs out with some very questionable people........
I am uneplyed for long time and have poor health. I have five kids to support. It is difficult to pay bills and mortgage.I donot like to depend on others but I think I have no choice How can I find State and Fedral Assisstant Programmes for poor people and what are elligibility creterias for that? Any good sources on intertnet.Thanks?
The world controls our economy knuckleheads. If we vote for McCain they are going to sink us. You have to vote for Obama or next spring 25% of Americans will lose their homes, and 50% will lose their retirement savings.
You might think they my theory is rediculous, but it's coming to fruition this very moment, but people have their blinders on and cannot see.
Obama or desintegration. Choose wisely.
To Whom It May Concern:
Being a veteran of the World’s greatest military, as many of you are I would expect you to hold integrity to yourself when hearing my story.
On or about the month of December 2004 I was hired on by the Missouri Department of Corrections at Moberly Correctional Center . While I was there I came in contact with a female employee whom I befriended. On or about March 2005 she and I left with our group to attend the training academy in Jefferson City, while there I made some decisions that did not hold up to my character. On several occasions during after duty hours I consumed alcohol with this particular female. However approximately the third week of training the last one of these occasions occurred with the end result of me being accused of sexual assault and terminated from my employment due to her allegations. The Department of Corrections states that I was terminated for bad conduct for consuming alcohol and being late for class (1day late due to illness & the only other day was the day after the alleged allegation). When I was terminated I appealed this decision because I felt I was being discriminated against however my appeal was denied. Given the facts this other female Individual was consuming alcohol just as often as I was and that she was late to class as often as I, their decision was to allow her to keep her employment but terminate mine. I am under the impression that they believe I actually committed these accusations therefore terminating me for sexual assault, if they were to honestly terminate me for bad conduct for the consumption of alcohol they would have terminated this female individual as well. Regardless of what the Department of Corrections may have in their records they were aware of her actions while in the training academy. I have a letter signed by the Macon County Victims Advocate dated February 7, 2007 which states quote “ I made several telephone calls to law enforcement in Jefferson City and was told upon investigation the overall feeling was that Ms. XXXX made the accusation in order to keep from getting in trouble with her employer for drinking while in training and having relations with a fellow correction officer” this letter also states “ Ms. XXXX had a history of making false allegations in Macon County ”. I have attached this letter.
After this incident I filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity but did not follow through due to family emergencies and I had also contacted the State Reps., State Senate, Director of State, the Division Director of Department of Corrections and Superintendant of Moberly Correctional Center their decisions stood final. I also seeked counsel from an attorney in Macon County who wanted much more than I could afford being a single father with 2 children at that time. It wasn’t until recently that I applied for a position as a law enforcement officer with the Travis County Sheriffs Department in Austin , Texas and found that because of the mark on my employment record I would not be able to obtain the position I was longing for. My criminal record is clean, I have many accredited hours in Criminal Justice, I am only being held back from doing what I want to, do due to false accusations from an unbalanced young lady. I am coming forward to all of you in the hopes of clearing my employment record.
As giving my all but death to this country as a 6 year veteran with an Honorable Discharge from the Navy, and currently on active duty with the California Air National Guard, I do believe I deserve better than this. I have been respectful to my Commander in Chief, to the State of Missouri and have always maintained honesty and integrity. I would only hope after reading this story you too would uphold your integrity and ask yourself, does this young man deserve such a tainted mark upon his employment record? If you honestly do not think so what could you do, given the office and position that you hold? Thank You for your time.
