Oops: New records show IRS targeted progressive groups more extensively than Tea Party groups.
CAN I SCREAM THIS FROM THE ROOFTOPS
Only love for Hillary. And Jon, be still my heart. A man with brains and convictions….. The best.
Grandchild Petting Zoo is a fantastic band name. Also ALL OF THIS.
It’s ice cream weather! It’s ice cream weather!!
Next thing you know, it’ll be the Fourth of July and I’ll be ruling the pool at Nana’s house. You all want to come? We have a big party.
And I will make sure certain smelly four-year-old boys don’t splash you.
Spring is in the air, friends, let’s revel in it.
Clearly Lady Luck was not on my side tonight.
Since I ended on 13 cents I decided not to cash out my big winnings.
More importantly, I bought these super cute flip-flops at Marshalls.
$14.99. They were practically giving them away.
I re-joined OK Stupid.
Let the shenanigans begin anew.
1. Single moms are the problem. Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child’s first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child’s father for that entire time.
2. Absent dads are the problem. Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly.
3. Black dads are the problem. Among men who don’t live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids’ lives.
4. Poor people are lazy. In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult.
5. If you’re not officially poor, you’re doing okay. The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America’s cities and regions.
6. Go to college, get out of poverty. In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor’s degree.
7. We’re winning the war on poverty. The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011.
8. The days of old ladies eating cat food are over. The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012.
9. The homeless are drunk street people. One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless.
10. Handouts are bankrupting us. In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget.
