    And so another poster child fades away.

    When we debate health care people trot over all sorts of poster children but since not one person in the united states lacks health care, since every single solitary person can get health care one way or another, we always know that they are false.

    When it comes to poster children for homelessness or poverty we know that homelessness and poverty exist, but it is far less prevalant than some would like us to believe and when aid is cut many of these people magically get homes and jobs.

    The real problem is that while the number of people who are homeless or in poverty drops when aid is reduced the smaller number of people who deserve aid now have decreased aid available to them.

    The solution is obvious. Allow charities to give out the aid alone because they do it without creating an entire culture of enabled professional poverters. (a new word that means one who is in poverty as a career). Get the gov out of the business of handing out aid because they do it poorly and it is unconstitutional when they do it.

    A guy claims to have found some Public Records from Lee County, Florida.

    http://sweetness-light.com/archive/more-background-on-henrietta-hughes

    The account he lists here, seems to say that the woman purchased three lots in that county in June and August 2001.

    She got a building permit in October 2001 to build a structure on one of them, and got a mortgage for $124K to do the building, on the same day. The bank started to foreclose in July 2003, but the full amount was paid that October, and full ownership was granted to Henrietta and her son Corey.

    Henrietta sold one of the other lots in June 2005, and then transferred ownership of the third lot to her son Corey in August 2006.

    The guy says he was unable to find any other public records of sales or transfers for either of the two remaining lots - the one Henrietta got the permit and money to build on, and the one she transferred to her son. If the records are complete, then apparently she and her son still own both lots today.

    If this account is true, then it doesn't quite square with her telling President Obama on national TV that she was "homeless".

    Anyone know a way to find out if they are true or false?

    How soon redneck nation forgets...that socialism charge didn't work during the campaign..it's not going to work now.

    Only Hannity watching Limbaugh listening RW extremists think Obama is a socialist.... and in case you haven't noticed, you're very much in the minority.

    We should not look into it, some things you just let go

    I thought the liberals were sick twisted slime buckets directly from the gates of hell the way they attacked Joe

    not that any of you are attacking her, you are being pretty nice to her

    Joe the Plumber? You mean the mentally challenged fool who wasn't even a licensed plumber and owed the state of Ohio back taxes, that Joe?

    I will admit he was one of the funniest characters in the campaign.

    Sorry, don't listen to either of those guys. But I can tell you are so blinded, you can't even see socialism on the rise with this neo-Marxist in office.

    Yes that Joe.

    The private citizen who obama walked up to him, not he to obama
    and asked a question that embarrass obama to no end.


    And then obama and all his trolls attacked him like he was some sort of terrorist

    Oh Id be so happy if any lib including your messiah would have the actual back bone to attack and actual terrorist in the way you guys did Joe.

    and lied about him too…

    Just as you are alluding to something now, Joe never said he was a licensed plumber he said he was a plumber and you can be one with out a license and more importantly the question was about buying a business not being a plumber

    It was Obama’s pathetic reply about spreading the wealth that changed things, not Joes question

    Then it was the horrible slime buckets who attacked him with everything they had to get him back for embarrassing the reject messiah.

    Not to mention obama supporters in high places who snuck in Joe’s personal records to find any dirt they could then blasted it on the news. One woman (obama worshiper) was rightfully fired for doing it.

    I don’t think republicans and conservatives should do that sort of thing, I trust we won’t
    Be like Dems….

    Pandora, nothing was changed by Joe the Plumber, nor was Obama embarrassed...unless you call winning by almost 10 million votes, the largest margin of victory by a non incumbent in history, an embarrassment.

    BTW, I noticed you didn't mention Joe's owing of back taxes...so I thought a little refresher course might be in order:

    http://cbs5.com/local/joe.the.plumber.2.842355.html

    You see, nothing that was said by the mean old liberals about Joe the plumber was untrue..Championing Joe was just one more misstep in a series of missteps by an inept McCain/Palin campaign.

    Since when have I ever cared a wit about whether or not I'm in the minority? Do you think an idiot in the majority, is less of an idiot because most idiots agree with him? I have a saying I heard a long time ago... Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large numbers. Facts are never dependent on you being informed, or having the slightest clue what you are talking about.

    Obama is a socialist, whether the majority of idiots, agrees or not. His support of failing socialist bailouts, pushing for socialist health care, passing of a broad socialist expansion of government, all make him a socialist. Moreover, he has openly supported inherently socialist ideals.

    Now to a thinking individual, it doesn't take a 7th grade level education to determine that, given the wide ranging socialist views, he's likely a socialist.

    sure lots was said that was untrue

    and yes he owed back taxes from the prior year, how did you learn that?

    because some skank woman abused her job to dig into his private life for her messiah


    if you want to talk about back taxes, you name your democrat appointed by your messiah and lets compare :)

    what you guys did to joe was sick, not you personally, I actually like you
    but your party the basic obama supporter.

    all joe did was ask a question
    and he was attacked

    What a prejudice, elitist, scummy response from the "tolerant" leftist here.

    What awful thing did he do? He dared to ask a question to a presidential candidate? I thought you supported free speech?

    You leftists are all alike. Some guy that barely made $40K last year, working hard and trying to start running his own business, and all he did was ask a question, and you turn into a horrible scum bag, calling him mentally challenged. You are not coming across too bright yourself.

    Joe didn't need a license. Under Ohio code, one person, typically the owner of the business, needs to have a business license that covers all employees. The only time Joe will need a license himself, is if he does in fact buy out the business.

    And his back taxes? He owed less than $1,200. Heck I owe $980 myself. Big whoopty frekin doo. Here's a guy with a wife and kids to support, and owe a whooping $1,200 in taxes.

    Compare that to the idiots on the left like Al Franken who failed to pay taxes, from 2003 to 2006/7, in 19 different states, to the tune of $70,000 dollars, and Mr Franken has a net worth of over $4.3 Million to $9.9 Million. And you think 7 months late on $1,200 from a guy making only $40K a year is bad? Hypocrites, all of you.

    When I get disgusted enough with these whiny hypocritical leftist, I tend to get on a roll :D

    I'm surprised some of these people are brave enough to crawl out from under the rocks they hide under to say this stuff. Of course when you are that arrogant, I suppose being prejudice and elitist is just normal, and doesn't seem as pathetically shameful to them, as it does everyone around them.
