Maybe they are referring to Slick Rick Perry the Enron-owned a$$hat Governor stiffing all those National Guardsmen on their paychecks?
The National Guard troops Texas Gov. Rick Perry ordered to the U.S. Mexico border last month are using food and gas aid from a local food bank because they haven't been paid in weeks, according to the KGBT. Members of the National Guard reach out for assistance for 50 troops who were deployed around August 11 visited the food banks, and members of the group told KGBT that they won't be paid until September 5.
Because Minimum Wage capital Texass is such a bastion of fiscal soundness, I imagine?
In his state they just show up at the Emergency Room and then stiff them on the bill.
Sooner or later somone in a Blue State who stayed in school and made something of himself will pick up the tab.)
So when does a DEMOCRAT finally get to play the old "too big to fail" card, Pukies?
So far that's clearly a G.O.P. exclusive and if you give one of their dishonest dirtb@gs the full eight years then it's also a guaranteed outcome too!
I thought that hopeless welfare states like Alabama stayed away from expanding Medicaid because it might cut into the massive tax breaks they give to such great Red State companies as WorldCom and HealthSouth?
List of Republican loudmouths who served their country in ANY war.
George Bust Sr (the one with a BRAIN, remember?)
-Yep that's it!
This is just sour grapes because the idiot cokehead Bush never did get his mitts on the Social Security Trust Fund.
That would have made Enron look like someone knocking over a 7-11 store if he had.
The Koch Party should get Jeff Skilling on their ticket in 2016.
There's a REAL Texass "conservative" for you?
Springy would vote for the Bush Disaster all over again tomorrow morning if you gave him the chance?
Especially the part where they start EXPORTING Finished Petroleum products in SECRET and tell all the Fox News primates that gas is going up because we need to build more refineries. (Three HUGE North American refineries have been shut down since the Saudi-owned sleazebucket Bush sold THAT little roadapple..)
The only thing the Republicans would do differently a second time around is to bail out all their butt buddies at Enron right alongside Goldman Sachs and AIG......
Warren Buffet says the exact opposite, maybe knows better to take advice from failed strip club bouncers at Fox News for Inbred Chumps?
There IS class warfare in this country, my class is winning." Warren Buffet
Buffett replied, "The rich are always going to say that, you know, 'Just give us more money, and we'll go out and spend more, and then it will all trickle down to the rest of you.' But that has not worked the last 10 years, and I hope the American public is catching on."
"Billionaire Warren Buffett says the Bush tax cuts should be allowed to expire for the richest Americans and that the "trickle down" economic theory hasn't worked. Warren Buffett: 'Trickle Down' Theory Hasn't Worked: "If anything, taxes for the lower and middle class and maybe even the upper middle class should even probably be cut further," Buffett told ABC News in an interview set to air later this week. "But I think that people at the high end --people like myself --should be paying a lot more in taxes. We have it better than we've ever had it."
Did that #$%$ Pittsburgh District Attorney who threw Cheech Marin into the slammer end up at the International DEA? Talk about a complete waste of government money?
I could see her hitting up the Blue States for a few Hundred Million the first time that anybody turns their back?
Well Walker was certainly committed to bringing pi@@-poor Red State school systems up to Wisconsin; as a dropout himself he probably didn't even know that they were certified at the same level as professional engineers back there when he first tried to replace all of them with Kelley Girls?
So maybe that $1.68 in Wisconsin is real after almost four years of corrupt G.O.P. mis-management? The clown only tried to GIVE away all the State-owned utilities away to Koch Industries on Day One, remember?
After all $.86/$1.00 in 2009 to $1.68/$1.00 now might be absolutely exceptional looking at all fifty states but on the other hand it is still well in the statistical range of the kind of massive economic failure that Bush II had delivered nationwide?
And why not?
Food Stamps have been a Bush Crime Family scam from way way back.
"I have to admit that when Newt Gingrich first used the phrase 'the food stamp president,' I was outraged," Gutierrez said. "But then I started looking at the facts, I did my homework, I crunched the numbers, and I have to admit, 'food stamp president' might be on target."
He then pointed at the portrait and said, "And here we have him, the food stamp president of the United States: George W. Bush," he said, before calling Bush's father, George H.W. Bush, the "food stamp president Sr.," given the increase in food stamp spending under that president, too. "It's hereditary, a rampant disease that makes them want to feed poor people," Gutierrez said.
under both Bushes, the cost of the food stamp program increased by $36 billion, while 18 million more people began using food stamps.
According to USA Today, 14.2 million recipients have been added to the program under President Obama.
Since you brought it up, ignorant Koch-owned clown:
“Despite Ferguson’s relative poverty, fines and court fees comprise the second largest source of revenue for the city, a total of 2,635,400,” according to the ArchCity Defenders report. And in 2013, the Ferguson Municipal Court issued 24,532 arrest warrants and 12,018 cases, “or about 3 warrants and 1.5 cases per household.”
Another clear case of too much Gubmint Regulation, eh Fox News ret@rds?
(While this amoral Republican sleazebucket was dumping Nine Million Dollars worth of cheap/free option stock every week, 36 percent of the brand new Countrywide mortgagees weren't even successfully making the very first house payment...)
What difference does it make. Eighty percent of the checks bounce!
If they had money in the bank then they wouldn't be utterly clueless Tea Party ret@rds in the first place!
While U.S. Rep. Tom Graves was calling for fiscal responsibility in Washington his attorney was arguing in a lawsuit that a North Georgia bank is at fault for issuing Graves a $2.2 million loan the bank knew he could not repay.
Graves was fighting a lawsuit along with business partner Chip Rogers, the state Senate majority leader. The two Republicans, through a limited-liability company, used the loan to purchase and renovate a Calhoun motel that quickly went under.
The bank sued, alleging the two defaulted on the loan. The politicians filed counterclaims against the bank, accusing it of improperly declaring the loan in default after reneging on a promise to refinance it at more favorable terms. Both parties dismissed their claims Wednesday, a day before they were scheduled to attend a hearing on the case in Calhoun. Graves said through a spokesman that the case has been “fully resolved in an equitable and fair manner.” An attorney for the bank declined to comment.
Far from being an undecided voter carefully weighing the issues, Samuel Joe Wurzelbacher was a registered Republican who had voted in the party’s primaries. Most scandalously of all, he owed more than $1,000 to the state of Ohio in unpaid property taxes – hardly the conscientious grafter held up to the nation as an example of how Barack Obama’s tax plan would shatter the American dream.
Even the very claim which elevated him to national prominence was debunked. The plumbing company he planned to buy wasn't making the $250,000 that would see his taxes increase under Mr Obama – in fact it was making roughly half that. Joe himself was earning some $40,000 a year – a sum which would instead make him eligible for substantial tax cuts under the Democratic plan.
It turns out that O’Donnell is a deadbeat. She stopped paying her mortgage in October of 2007 while the bank filed the papers in March of 2008 to seize the house. She refused to contest the case and a summary judgment of foreclosure was entered against the property in May. According to a Lexis-Nexis search, the foreclosure was “stayed” – the house had been foreclosed but the sheriff sale had not commenced – when she sold the house to her boyfriend and legal counsel who then paid the outstanding balance as well as more than $2,000 in interest and legal fees.
Cue in Fox "News" conspiracy theories about how this is really all about keeping the USPS in business here....
I don't see a whole lot of grey area here myself, vt_investor?
But there are plenty of neoCONS in the comments section of the Finance.Yahoo story who also think that Fed Ex should be allowed to ship whatever they want wherever the want even after they were specifically told not to?
Like Enron and WorldCom this sure didn't happen in a vacuum either. The only thing that red staters like
better than their evangelical blowhards is outright fraud over and over again from self-righteous sleazebuckets.
WASHINGTON – (May 4, 2011) The law firm of Wu, Grohovsky, & Whipple, P.L.L.C., today announced the settlement of a multimillion dollar whistleblower lawsuit against Federal Express Corporation (FedEx) for covering up a decade-long fraudulent billing scheme involving thousands of late deliveries that FedEx falsely blamed on 9/11-related security delays.
The U.S. Department of Justice found that, in the decade following the 9/11 attacks, FedEx covered up thousands of late deliveries to the federal government by falsely blaming non-existent “security delays” at government agencies and by claiming that no one was available at the agencies to accept deliveries. FedEx’s cover-up allowed it to fraudulently charge the federal government for millions of dollars in unearned fees.
According to the unsealed complaint issued May 3, 2011, FedEx utilized a system of false code entries into its delivery tracking system to mask its late deliveries of government packages. “Security delay” and “customer not available” codes entered into the tracking system allowed FedEx to blame delays on the federal government and avoid having to honor its money-back guarantee for late deliveries.
Whistleblower Mary Garofolo uncovered the fraudulent practice while employed at FedEx.
If you had just put a potted plant in the Oval Office in 200, (instead of a sleazy low rent TX embezzler, that is,) then the US National Debt was enroute to $3.8 Trillion in 2008.
No wonder that Professor says that the 2001 tax cuts alone cost the country $6.6 Trillion over the long haul?
I wonder if they will have to try these guys twice just like the HealthSouth swindler?
You got THAT right!
The "Rainy Day Fund" itself comes from when the whole state was bouncing checks in the mid-1980s.
Tell the judge that those emails are right next to George W. Bust's 246 page dossier with the
Drug Enforcement Agency from the early 1980s.
