    31 states have legislation declaring sovereignty recently. Where is NC's bill? The Fed Govt is out of control. The Obama Deception movie will be released March 15th. The dollar will collapse from all this stimulus.

    VBush, they have to remove lead off of lead sinkers on fishing leads. They just discovered lead is used on bottom rigs. I think the rest of the money is going to save the nauga. You know, the animal where naugahyde is made from. You know they are nearing extinction due to global warming.

    O.k. naysayers, this is one promise that Obama did uphold. Are you keeping count? Nah. You're just going after the unfortunate mishaps.

    Who is responsible for assuring that allocated funds are used for exactly what they are intended? Will NC government again divert funds for pet projects? After all, tea pot museums are in high demand.

    Wonder why Greene County is not getting any money? WE have no public housing on section 8 (owned by indivdual owners) We need some improved housing for our low wealth citizens.

    Its just a way to state "free housing", they are not worried about lead, mold, etc. More give aways for the lazy ones that will not work for a living. Ever notice how they destroy these nice new developments,they become drug havens with dealings going on at all hours of the night. Most of the people that live in this free housing don't take pride in keeping it up, afterall it is FREE, the grass is mowed for them, etc. We are expected to give them free housing, they get it there entire life, welfare, food stamps, voulchers for electric paid, free college, pell grant money, Medicaid- free healthcare, free prescriptions, free voulchers for taxi rides, free babysitting. The days of yore it was called: "THE PROJECTS", today it is called urban development,look for a name change soon with Obuma. We are all just puppets on a string until we have real change!!!
