On the domestic side, according to documents, the budget would consolidate 18 community development block grant programs into one Commerce Department program for a savings of $1.8 billion. It would slice law enforcement grants to states from $2.8 billion to $1.5 billion. And it would cut 48 education programs totaling $4.3 billion, including $2.2 billion for high school programs, mostly state grants for vocational education.
The budget would cut $440 million in Safe and Drug-Free School grants, $500 million in education technology state grants, $225 million for the Even Start literacy program, $280 million for Upward Bound programs for inner-city youths and a $150 million talent research program, according to the documents.
The budget includes no subsidy for Amtrak and would eliminate $20 million for the next generation of high-speed rail and $250 million for railroad rehabilitation. Several Energy Department programs would be eliminated, as would $100 million in grants for land and water conservation. The budget proposal would cut $94 million in grants for the Healthy Communities Access Program and phase out rural health grants, the documents said. Bush touted his commitment to such programs during his reelection campaign. The president would terminate the Community Food and Nutrition Program, and cut a migrant and seasonal farm worker training program. He would renew his effort to cut a $143 million program for the removal of severely distressed housing.
bear, this all started years ago when Michael serenaded us with his knowledge of precious metals investing. I pointed out then, and have continued since, that Michael is a disaster at understanding that investing dimension. Therefore, he should avoid forecasting. Of course, Michael being Mikiesmoky, he can't. He knows all and will pontificate to all. So when he again started predicting gold, I just had to remind him of last year's prediction. However, he's got quite the track record. Let's not forget his advocacy of owning KO in lieu of $325 gold. What is missing from Michael's position, of yesterday and today, is just what Michael believes he has said in the past! For some reason his sorry record of gold forecasts is being ignored by him. Selective amnesia? alzheimers? or is there too much the 'tout' in him? Why should he run from his record?
REGARDING: micheal..why dont you just find the relevant post for canoe...surely you know what number it is...
RESPONSE: Bear.., you receive good points for cutting to the chase.
The substance is my original comment, whatever that was.
You lose some points because you didn't direct your logical remark at Harvey.
When I saw the link on his message, I thought he had found "the" comment of attribution.
Bear.., you took a good shot with the correct ammunition...., but at the incorrect target.
REGARDING: Well, Michael is consistent.
RESPONSE: Agreed. One of the few posting-bits you have directed at me, which is imbedded in truth.
REGARDING: Just posturing. Not addressing his forecast inaccuracy.
RESPONSE: You are the one, who has made a statement without substantiation.
I, and any discerning reader, thought you were posting the link that would have provided you with your substantiation, but (LOL) it's just referencing other nonsense you have posted.
REGARDING: Not even disputing that he made one. Just attacking the 'messenger'. Reputations are never built by attacking the messenger. And attacking the messenger without stating his 'stand' is another error.
RESPONSE: Harvey..., please discontinue your exposing your dishonesty.
In any debate or court, you couldn't get away with this type of nonsense.
Whereas you may not be the "missing" link, you are the "weak" link.
Well, Michael is consistent. Just posturing. Not addressing his forecast inaccuracy. Not even disputing that he made one. Just attacking the 'messenger'. Reputations are never built by attacking the messenger. And attacking the messenger without stating his 'stand' is another error.
