Most minimum wage job holders never recieve 40 hours a week. Bringing home $500 a week would be a dream come true for a couple both working minimum wage jobs with one child. After deductions "taxes" and a hospital or doctor garnishing your paycheck or if you have insurance through your employer "not likely" because you then would not have a pay day, it would all go to buy insurance, you're not in any concievable way even coming close to bringing home $500. Babysitter $100 a week...
Car payment 50...
Of course you know these bills are much higher and you know their paycheck is much smaller.
The US just gave Pakistan $60 Billion... with a B. How much verification do you need that this money will be spent on goodnesss and light or are you sooo concerned that a American Baby might get a extra bottle of milk or have a hot breakfast............. Get the hell out, I want to puke.
In the 80s a woman i knew worked at the Read House Hotel, and they had huge gophers. They tried to fix the problem by electrical vents etc.. The dining area was a main concern. Of course, the vents were just one of the ways they kept the rats from sight and up close and personal encounters with guest.
They had to hire a man for full time rat patrol, and as far as she knew, they never had the upper hand on the problem. It was all about containment, from the guest.
Have read all his books and my favorite Chapter in "All Over But The Shouting" is when he's sitting at a table with a bunch of big wigs. Rick threw in a opinion and some idiot told him to quit embarrassing himself! Rick said, I will take you out and whip your ass..... I believe it was Harvard.
I am just recollecting this and this is not exact quotes, and its worth another read.
I have never related to a writter and got it like i have with Rick's books. My Alabama family was Ricks family.
NO.1 fan and Mama and Sister feel the same.
Klifnotes, i mean Pam,
This thread is being editorialized by a professional TFP writter! I went and read Klifty Shifty former post and damn if they did'nt scream Times Editor.
I am getting cut off after this one, Shifty will no doubt deny, but i cannot leave here without outing this shameful act.
The air of superiority was very telling, but reading former postings was a "light Bulb" moment.
Here's one for the wingnuts, Sex, President, woman, sex,President,woman.
I could lay it out, but get your tinfoil hat on and adjust antenna to recieve all the signals and put two and two together.
Clay and editor 'Sohn' recently insulted the people of Coffee CO. by lying that everyone in the county were conservative 'teabillies'.
Mutt-Jeff was'nt even close to the truth and obviosly don't care to correct the many untruths that the 'editorbullies' shamefully put in a newspapper as if it had a ounce of credibility.
The Tea party of course is a non-issue but Bennett seems to be stuck, maybe he likes drawing a teabag.
Distraction from real issues seems to be this duo's mission.
Way to often i feel i am looking at a cartoon done by a immature 12yr. old bully.
Hi, Potcat, i am a bigot!
Lets put a warning sticker on Pam Sohn editorials, Beware "Half Truths and Bigot Lies" - "Rude and Raucous" etc...
The Manchester Times Editor ran right along the lines of your teabillies editorial and printed Bennetts cartoon.
Sooo lazy and all so sad, will be needing a job soon.
Does anyone smell lazy?
Read all this in the paper day before.
Smoke-fire, yep,thats usually how it goes.........
The Times editor really needs to correct "tell the truth" about Coffee County and what really went down in Manchester because some people actually believe these lies.
The Monday front page of the Chattanooga Times Free Press had a correction about the Muslim event. It was'nt local citizens, but out of towners that the Muslims invited.
After reading every thing i could find and watching video of the Muslin event and oh, talking to people from Coffee CO., in my opinion it was the Muslims who were wanting a riot and a hate crime arrest, did'nt happen.
Teabillies-teabullies, the only bullies here is Pam and Clay. One can't hold anyone who read this editorial and lazily believed such judgemental lies layed upon the whole community responsiable other than where it originated, Sohn-Bennett.
Distasteful hmmm, you should know.
I'm not so naive as to believe that the people at this paper or the goverment don't know who Potcat, Soakya or Leaf are if they were inclined to know so.
Just to post on these threads at the paper you give up personal information, anonymous, please.
Discrimination, reading about Kamala Harris in Vanity Fair and came across the word several times and occured to me that i spelled it wrong in my rant about Sohn.
I get fired up when i think about "Teabillies", The Wink and the discrimination heaped upon Coffee County.
