  I think that means, if you're paying for the program,
you're not eligible.

   Slum lords don't need rent collectors, the taxpayers pay the rent
of the low income people living in those slums.

And once again W'hine demonstrates his inability to behave here as he
always exhorts others to do.

Oh, special circumstance. Here's one: if you are driving down I-95 at
night through the state of crazies, aka South Carolina, and you have
the
proper permit, you'll want to have your sidearm ready to fire in case
you have to stop for gas or to use the toilet. It's South Carolina,
after all, the state of crazies.

-----------------------------------------------

Wouldn't work for you Harry.   South Carolina does not honor a
concealed carry permit issued in Maryland.
You could get a non-resident permit but only if you own land in SC or
are a member of the military neither are likely in your case.

I certainly agree that it's a bad idea. Of course, it's a budget
proposal, and I expect he'll get some pushback?

-----------------------------------

Untrue, and study after study has shown that it's effective.

--------------------------------

Oh. More "studies".   Well, since we are discussing studies, there are
also some that indicate that the "No Child Left Behind"  program is a
failure in terms of long term benefit.   "Studies" have proven that
after about the sixth grade any benefit of the program is lost.

I know that. And you did see where I posted, "...you have the right permit."

I didn't say it was something I would do. I merely pointed out another
"special circumstance."

We try to get through SC as quickly as possible.  :) I like coastal SC,
though.

Hey entitlement reform is a good idea now that Obama came up with it.

----------------------------------------

I still get a kick out of how SS has now become an "entitlement".
I always thought it was a mandatory insurance program that we are
required to pay into and your employer matches it.

Guess I was wrong all these years.

Doubt it. The boys with the sticky fingers want you to feel humble when
you attempt to cash in your investment.
