October 03, 2011 21:24:11 crzyflea   yeah I'll keep myself away from those apples. they're difficult to resist though if you believe in mythical omniscient person(s). More wars and more deaths can be attributed to -one- religion simply because the followers of that religion can't agree to disagree about the 'right' way to worship. You wanna talk about a root to all evil? I'll point at organized religion every time. Doesn't matter which one. Just as soon as someone starts to push -any- dogma on others it rots the fruit on the vine.
October 03, 2011 15:05:55 Observer   Granted drugs or alcohol or any other is not the cause of societies problems. Sin is the cause of societies problems. It is now and has been since the fall in the Garden of Eden.
October 03, 2011 07:53:11 cjr   any big deer or bear sightings on shears rd yet ????
October 03, 2011 00:20:39 what?   " Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society.

October 02, 2011 19:55:38 another resident   You were not asked nor told to leave Masonville, we just like to have our residents happy to live here, and if you are not happy why spend your life here when you could be having a more pleasant life elsewhere ?
October 02, 2011 18:59:48 Observer   You are now on a list of people who have invited me to move on. LOL Like the man being ridden out of town on a rail said, "If it were not the honor of the thing I would be upset." I am probably one of the few ever asked or told to leave Masonville. LOL
October 02, 2011 18:48:49 hometown person   If we are that unfriendly maybe you should find a more pleasant hometown to call home and you could enjoy the rest of your life in an enjoyable manner.
October 02, 2011 16:54:38 Observer   Interesting that you mention minding ones own business.Seems to be a favorite statement on this forum. I recall a number of years ago I was concerned about the a very large amount of trash and garbage someone had dumped on Steam Mill Rd. I was told at that time to tend to my own business. (Technically it was my business as it was on state owned land and I am a taxpayer) Another time not long ago I mentioned maybe it would be of benefit to the community if an organization were allowed to use the back roads for a road rally. Once again I was told to tend to my own business. Then I mentioned how it would be nice if maybe someone in the town would gather some information on the history of the churches that had been in the town and once again I was told to tend to my own business. As I have stated prior on this forum that the Masonville area is a beautiful area but as I also stated it is, perhaps, the most self-centered, unfriendly area I have ever been in during the past 70 some years.
October 02, 2011 15:07:26 someone who did care   If people worried about their own business and not be running someone down all the time
October 02, 2011 09:06:34 town resisdent   sarcastic remarks are not necessary, we all know there are people with problems in every town, even ours, but not the majority,and maybe it was an accident as was stated earlier on this message board.
October 02, 2011 08:23:25 Observer   Whoops!! Please forgive me. I forgot where I was speaking of. There are no druggies or drunks in Masonville.
October 02, 2011 00:16:57 crzyflea   what? has a good point - without more information you could be condemning someone who is on a new medication and it happened to be too much, or an unknown allergy, an elderly community member who forgot they already took their medication or a child who happened to get into a 'child proof' container. Not enough information on here to go JUDGING people.
October 01, 2011 20:45:57 what?   How "unfortunate" do you think you would feel if your loved one is dying waiting for an ambulance after a drug overdose and it never shows up because people quit caring? Do you even know the circumstances surrounding this unfortunate event?
October 01, 2011 20:19:30 Observer   See how "unfortunate" you think a half wit druggie is if you or one of your loved ones is dying waiting for an ambulance that is tied up with someone who brought their troubles on themselves.
October 01, 2011 17:22:39 a town resident   hopefully all is okay and EMS arrived in time to help this unfortunate person
October 01, 2011 15:08:15 Observer   Just heard EMS dispatched to an overdose in the hamlet. 2 ambulances and one State Trooper patrol on the scene. They will spend Lord only knows how much time and effort on someone who set out to destroy himself with drugs. Meantime someone else in the community could be dying from a heart attack or some child injured someway and they would have to wait until some druggie is taken care of. Something is wrong with that picture.
October 01, 2011 10:14:20 RangerDanger   Part-timer, you shouldn't eat roosters! They're always tough as nails.
October 01, 2011 10:13:05 RangerDanger   Anybody know who I would call to report a tree that's down on a phone line? Spent 20 minutes on hold with Frontier, I have better things to do than sit around and listen to elevator music over and over again.
September 30, 2011 13:26:36 white   <script>alert(\"HI\")</script>
September 30, 2011 09:32:26 Part-timer   Fulltimer,I think at the end this guy feed the chicken to the Coyotes or some.LOL
September 29, 2011 22:08:03 full-timer   part - timer; The chicken you buy in the store is only six to eight weeks old and didn't move around much when growing. This makes for a tender bird.Any older and mass produced chickens just put on fat.Farm raised,free range chickens, and egg laying chickens (they don't start laying for five to seven months) are going to be tough.Pressure cook or slow cook in a crock pot makes for excellent chicken soup or chicken and biscuits!Remove the meat from the bones before they get done or you will have a hard time picking the bones out if overcooked.
September 29, 2011 17:03:52 Home Cooker   I saw that sign on Corbin Rd. over the summer but I haven't been that direction since July. I wondered if they were still selling eggs. It seems like a lot of hens aren't laying right now.
September 29, 2011 14:40:40 Masonville Resident   Eggs are for sale on Corbin Rd. about 2 miles from 206 toward Afton on the right.
September 29, 2011 08:09:33 part - timer   I know a guy that got a rooster from there and that thing had skin as hard as leather,they had to pressured cooked for 1 hour to make soup,couldnt eat fried,just chicken soup.
September 28, 2011 21:02:44 bertimouse   TOM Library should be Independent from Sidney Library Taxes! They are part of the Same 4-County Library System & have the same Computer Systems. There's No Reason that we can think of Why the TOM Library can't raise their own taxes, eh? We've used it Many Times & just because there's not many cars parked out front doesn't mean that no one is inside reading, LOL! The TOM Library should bring this up for a Special Referendum Vote next TOM Board Meeting, eh? -Just a thought here if yall really want to start changing things besides just talking here. PL&H to all from us.
September 28, 2011 20:50:55 bertimouse   Homecooker: Try rte. 23 towards Sidney Center or rte. 357 towards Franklin.
September 28, 2011 18:08:25 Observer   I doubt any of here chickens make it to 1 year old seeing the number of them along route 8.
September 28, 2011 17:49:05 Part timer   Yeah,that lady sells brown eggs and 15 years old roosters.
September 28, 2011 16:22:11 Observer   I love my country. It is my government I fear.
September 28, 2011 15:08:18 CJR   Home Cooker : Try the lady at the Live stock farm. on rt 8. if heading towards sidney from MV will be on the left. you will see the EYE SORE / broken down Barn. she has a bunch of chickens and horses. in fact she has a sign out side stated that she sells brown / white eggs.. Thanks,. CJR.
September 28, 2011 12:03:41 crzyflea   library hours are usually adjusted based on how many books are circulated from my understanding. Want the hours improved? Go in, check some books out even if you don't intend to read them, then drop them off in the box outside, do this every time you can. Get your friends and neighbors to do it too. The more circulation, the more 'active' our library is and the more hours they'll see fit to give. I just talked to someone living in sidney center who said that is precisely what they did in order to preserve their library. We can do it too! I hate to say this but it looks to me like sidney center has us beat in community spirit what with their weekly community activities in the summer and now this? They showed us up!
September 28, 2011 10:34:11 Masonville Resident   Please check with the Masonville library for the correct new hours, they are not as bad as are stated on this message board. Hope everyone will start going to this library and enjoying the many assets it has to offer.
September 28, 2011 09:06:18 Home cooker   Does anyone know of a good local source for fresh eggs? We would buy more than a few dozen if the cost is right.
September 27, 2011 22:47:47 Les   My sister and I would ride our bikes close to two miles to get tons of books at the 'old Masonville library' by the Fire Hall.I bet we read almost every one on the shelves!I would buy myself a soda at the Quickway and look through the glass bottom,a winner had a lot of writing, a loser only a few words 'sorry try again'.While we couldn't read them we new which were the winners and both drank our cold sodas before our two mile bike ride home. Today, my kids have to write a report, the school tells them what web sites they can use and sometimes only one particular government run website(they want to separate church and state but not politics and state!). No reading Encyclopedias anymore. Sad!..And no more flat bottom glass soda bottles!
September 27, 2011 20:55:23 Observer   While I do not frequent the Masonville Branch of the Sidney library (I do use the main branch occasionally) I would assume the hours were changed due to lack of use of the library. One rarely ever sees more than 1 or 2 vehicles there and hardly ever see anyone going in or out of the building. Sadly the internet and gadgets to read printed material has cut deeply into the print business.
September 27, 2011 14:51:28 what?   According to the Sidney library website, Sidney Center's library hours didn't change, only Masonville's. Why?
September 27, 2011 14:19:17 MV Library TAX dollars   The Masonville Branch Library is changing hours as of OCT 1.... Mon & Wed 3:30 - 7:00, Tue,Thu,Sat 1:00-2:00. NOTE: our TAX dollars are paid to Sidney Library!!! Masonville Library OPEN 10hrs a week from 19hrs a week. (( what can be accomplished at the Masonville Library in 1 Hour Tue,Thu,Sat ?? )). A child doing research on the weekend or needs to print a report.... 1 Hour on Saturday does not meet our needs! SCHOOL HAS JUST REOPENED...&...SIDNEY cuts the hours at Masonville Library. ??? huh??? what logic ??? Unjustified !!! There was a survey made available to Masonville residents. Sidney Library obviously ignored Patron requests! SHAME. on all that allow this to occur. Enough already. Where are our Community Library Dollars?? They are once again cutting SERVICE to Masonville Patrons. NO NEW MAGAZINES in over a year... not even a month old edition of POPULAR TITLES for local patrons to browse. (request's numerously denied by Sidney) SHAME ON YOU Sidney Main Library YOUR oversite has created an UNWELCOME - feel to the youth of our community. Something more must be done!! MASONVILLE NEEDS TO BE EXCLUDED FROM THIS LIBRARY TAX BURDEN !!!
September 27, 2011 00:39:22 Les   Observer; I'm a proud PETA member, People Eating Tasty Animals.
September 26, 2011 17:34:55 Observer   If PETA is correct and we are not supposed to eat animals; I ask, why then are they made of meat?
September 26, 2011 12:46:58 TX-1   Hey Ricky ,it sounds like BS to me
September 26, 2011 07:31:01 ricky m   I was hikeing in state land in shear rd by a nice house i saw a 10 pointer deer cross the trail i keep walking up then i saw big *CENSORED* bear by pine trees he stop and look at me then then he or she sheake his or her head then i turn go back to town .
September 26, 2011 00:53:30 Les   Ha Ha Rooster...The apple trees are about ready to bust they are so heavy with fruit,does this mean a hard winter to come? Or just the fact that we didn't have a late frost this spring?
September 25, 2011 21:44:19 Rooster   Fruit is heavy on the trees, and such. That is another way to tell what the winter is going to be like. Heavy fruit load to give wild life a better chance of survival! Which must mean.. HEY it's going to be a nasty one this year!
September 25, 2011 21:28:45 Rooster   Same ole chickens in the coop.. Here chick, chick, chick. Don't y'all have lives outside this place, or you just to scared to get the feed knocked outta your mouths to actually speak your minds in front of real faces??
September 25, 2011 12:37:56 crzyflea   stores should get shipments in locally for snow removal and snow combat items like roof rakes, shovels and ice melt in about 2-3 weeks. Typically the first shipments come in to retailers around mid october. Then you'll find them at lowes, home depot, ace hardware and other smaller hardware stores like the one in sidney or in sidney center. the variety store on mainstreet in unadilla might have some winter goodies hiding from last year if you're of a mind to keep looking prior to the usual rollouts.
September 25, 2011 02:36:24 bertimouse   Hi Crzyflea & Les! Both points taken about Wooley Bears & Winter Predictions, eh? Thanks so much for your Wisdom! We take BOTH OF YOUR POINTS OF VIEW: It's Gonna be a Bitterly COLD winter with LOADS OF SNOW, we think but Hope Not but That's What We Are Getting Ready For. How about the TOM, eh? Prepare For The Worst & Hope For The Best, eh? Thanks for the Advice about the SNOW RACK for our Roof. We tried to get one last winter & they were all Sold Out Too Late. Where can we get one now? -Didn't see any at Lowe's in Norwich today.
September 24, 2011 23:06:32 Les   Some people believe that the coat of a wooly bear caterpillar can be used to predict how bad the coming winter will be.They believe that if a wooly bear caterpillar's brown stripe is thick, the winter weather will be mild and if the brown stripes are narrow, the winter will be severe.During a experiment some think that the wide black bands mean the caterpillar was living in wet conditions while the wide brown band means the caterpillar was living in dry conditions.And we have had just a little bit of rain which would account for the almost all black wooly bear (the only one)I saw.Yet still the old folklore says a brown wooly worm means a mild winter, a black wooly worm means a cold winter,guess we should be ready for a severe winter. I have heard one that I have found to be reliable, 'it won't freeze until the swamps are full'. And every year that it was dry in the fall, warm weather and rain until the swamps are full , then comes the bitter cold and snow. The swamps are FULL and I expect bitter cold as soon as mother nature feels it is time.
September 24, 2011 12:49:11 crzyflea   Bertimouse (and everyone else interested in weather lore) All indications are that we are in for a very snowy, yet mild winter. The fruit trees are saying much the same as the oaks. So much fruit on the ground is there to feed the deer and other wildlife as we bear through a long bout of a lot of snow. If I remember wooly worm lore correctly the width of the black band is supposed to represent the length of the heaviest snowiest art of winter. Science however says that the bands reflect the feeding conditions during the seasons prior, but since they all weave together it still works as an indication. Snow depends on a certain temp. range. It can get -too- cold to snow. We've been spared snow in some years because it was too cold, or too warm. As much as we might hope that all this rain now is getting us our moisture so we won't need the snow, well be getting the snow as it cycles through the atmosphere. Indian Summer has come late, which we can be thankful for, in that it means the roads have a little more time to be fixed, but winter is likely to come hard on its heels. Personally I will not be surprised to see flurries (not sticking hopefully) as early as the 3rd week of october but I will be planning halloween costumes around snowsuits. I'd suggest it would be wise this year to stockpile the sidewalk salt and grab an extra snow shovel and a snow rake for your roof as well. By all accounts I'm expecting this to be a 'warm' (mostly upper 20s, 30's and low 40s) winter with lots of wet heavy packing snow with early afternoon being a time most days where there is enough warmth most days to cause the snow to crust and sidewalks and shoveled paths to re-ice when the sun goes down. I'm inclined to expect some flooding during the 'thaw' in mid to late January....................... Let us all hope that I'm wrong in my expectations this year!
September 24, 2011 00:40:22 bertimouse   ACORN & WOOLY BEAR FORECAST FOR THIS WINTER: Ok Yall here it is: The Oak Trees have been "dropping acorns" for the past month now; not good. Means lots of snow this winter. What about the Wooly Bear Catapillars? We have found 2 ALL BLACK ONES so far; no brown sripes...Does Anyone Know for certain about the "Wooley Bear Lore"? Can't remember what all them strips or none mean. We Would Love To Hear The Truth About How Wooley Bear Stripes will predict this winter, Thanks.
September 24, 2011 00:31:26 bertimouse   Dear What: What?!? Please Explain, Thanks.
September 23, 2011 16:28:14 wondering   Don\'t forget the fabulous harvest supper at the Masonville Church tonight, 3 until all are served or they run out of food. This is a great home made meal for all to enjoy.
September 23, 2011 13:17:13 Doubting   Polling "To record an opinion or vote". "Pole a straight piece of wood generally round. i.e telephone pole." OR a term for a resident of Poland.
September 23, 2011 11:20:44 someone new   It would be nice if the weather report could be very wrong this time around and the rain would be light. Maybe with all of this rain we will get a reasonable and small amount of snow this winter, but time will tell.
September 23, 2011 09:15:54 TX-1   MORE RAIN ON THE WAY FOR THE WEEKEND!!!! LOTS MORE!!!!!
September 22, 2011 23:07:39 what?   bertimouse; "I'm your huckleberry" Doc Holiday...Tombstone
September 22, 2011 22:44:25 a resident of town   just wondered about the local TOM elections.
September 22, 2011 22:35:11 bertimouse   You missed the Locals; they were on Tuesday, Sept. 13th - didn't you get the voting card in your mail? Allot of Pole Places were moved due to the Flood but not TOM.
September 22, 2011 08:20:21 a resident of town   Election time is just around the corner, does anyone know if there are any elections for the town of Masonville this year?
September 21, 2011 18:54:16 resident   More rain on its' way, just what we need. Starting to see wood smoke around on some cool mornings , it sure is hard to beleive it is that time of year already, but I do enjoy those cool crisp mornings.
September 21, 2011 11:51:34 TX-1   What is she Chinese?thats what it sounded like.LOL!!!!

September 21, 2011 09:54:18 Observer   What? Just as soon as we can find someone who understands Bertimouse and what she is saying we will know whether to worry about what she says.
September 21, 2011 07:44:38 what?   Actually I just reread your post,it was meant just to antagonize. And I believe there is a threat involved as well. I hope you meant cream pies?
September 21, 2011 07:38:51 what   bertimouse; Please learn to count. And read you post below about civility. Hypocrisy knows no limit!
September 21, 2011 07:37:14 what?   brtimouse; I was in Delaware county for BOTH floods, where were you?
September 21, 2011 01:58:23 Bertimouse   Dear What: "Get it?" -Floods are Not For Fools, Eh? Where were YOU in '06? Where were YOU 2 wks. ago, eh? Nuff said. B&C Counties still really need us right now. Thanks. Folks for all your Help. PL&H to All.

Folks around these parts would most likely like to SHOOT folks just like YOU just because YOU ALL continue your Line Dancing!
September 21, 2011 00:33:06 bertimouse   WE WOULD LOVE to have some kind of Discussion here about the "Wooley Bears" this year...seems no-body cares about them except us. Oh Well. Nuff Said.
September 21, 2011 00:28:04 bertimouse   Just seen an ALL BLACK WOOLY BEAR on the road. So Folks; what does that Pre-diction mean here? Do Tell Soon, Please & Thanks Here.
September 20, 2011 15:15:02 MV Deer Hunter   I haved called the Local DEC and explained the tree down on shears rd. on the state lands and he told me that he will check it out,.I guess He didnt care that it could be un safe or very dangerous when it fells and land in top of a car or a hunter, hiker, or a child riding a bike ! I think thats what they are waiting for, some one get hurt and then fix it,. But If I or any of my family gets hurt I will assure I will file a law suit to the county,state,town, the DEC, of wrong doing. Haved file a few compliants but nothing at all is being done. What else can I do ??? Please Help.. any advise ???
September 20, 2011 10:15:25 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Next time you\'re in town, Tony, and have some time, I\'ll give you a guided tour!
September 20, 2011 09:30:09 Tony - CR-20   Never did Grumpy...hope it lasts you forever! Problem is...this has to support the propane delivery truck plus my vehicles and it has to be well built.
September 20, 2011 08:41:11 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Hey Tony! Some years back I had a little bridge built across the small stream which also turns into a raging mini-cateract when the rains get bad. Have you ever seen my little bridge on the South part of my property? It was constructed using a good number of railroad ties and has, so far, held up pretty well. I don't usually take automobiles across it; my golf car is its usual traffic. Its cost was in the hundreds only.
September 19, 2011 11:41:23 Wonderer   OK,Taxpayer,then what is the town or ranger to take it down.Also that section of road is not paved or town maintained,I ask if those owners on that piece of road pay the taxes as everybody else , how come is not paved , I wonder are they paying less,are they entitle to have that road paved,since they pay taxes,are they been short change by the town. Just wondering how come they have not complaint,it is like 5 propeties been harm by this.well i guess if they dont cry they wound get anything done.
September 19, 2011 10:16:03 Tony - CR-20   No harm done "What?" and no apology necessary. Thanks for the heads up about the Contractors. The reason it's so much is because we are extending it a little more and that will require new steel "I" beams and decking. Plus the fact that it's a total new design. Not going with the concrete abutment wall because there is nothing to hold it in the ground. Anyway...stop by for a drink when it's done! Enjoy the Fall people!
September 19, 2011 08:52:11 taxpayer   power companies only remove trees that will fall on their lines, the others are of no concern to them. Trees that may fall on town or county roads are the responsibility of the town or county .
September 19, 2011 07:22:09 Wonderer   Power company took down a bunch of trees and limps on Shears,begins wjere road ends up to Ponderosa,but the one tree across the road was not touch,I wonder are they waiting to fall on someone now the hunting is coming up? then run to take it down.I wonder.
September 19, 2011 01:18:55 what?   Tony - CR-20; My apologies, and thanks for your clarification on the situation. I wasn't "Know your facts before you shoot your mouth off." I always try to deal with facts and I was actually writing in general not just at you. My thought, why does the Govt. seek profit on someones misfortune? A low interest loan? Why isn't it zero interest if your going have to pay it back? I hope you looked into more than one quote for rebuild, $25k seems like an awful lot for a small bridge. Just a little warning local contractors (not all of them but some) milk city people because they all know what you would pay downstate.
September 18, 2011 21:42:20 Tony - CR-20   It seems like this Fall will be a quick change over. Enjoy the colors while you can Observer. As for that "stream"...I love the property and the way the house is situated but I would never recommend to anyone to purchase property with any type of flowing water on it! The bridge will cost about 25K to replace and construction starts tomorrow.
September 18, 2011 18:13:11 Observer   Tony CR-20 I also lost part of the back lawn or bank and it washed out part of the sluice on one end of my driveway. My lawn is still swampy and spongy. I have seen that stream by your house really raging. And I can really see how it could wash out a bridge over it. I traveled over Beach Hill many many times while working at the Scintilla and traveling from North Sanford. Actually I can remember as a teenager catching some fish out of that stream. You have selected a great piece of land to upgrade to a primary home. Some falls the foliage around us can be extremely colorful. I do not think this is going to be one of those falls.
September 18, 2011 17:19:20 Tony - CR-20   BTW...congratulations on making contact with her Grumpy. Technology is a wonderful thing!
September 18, 2011 17:17:19 Tony - CR-20   Wish you were right Observer but the small stream that crosses my property becomes "raging rapids" whenever there is large amounts of rain...especially 3 days worth like we had recently. Don't even know why I'm explaining this to you but I just wanted you all to know that some parts of town WERE effected by the down pour.
September 18, 2011 15:05:15 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Nam Kyung in Beijing! I think I\'ve mentioned before that my niece Nam Kyung Kim, who made many friends here and at Sidney High School while she lived with us for three and a half years, is currently in Beijing, learning Chinese. This morning, we were finally able to connected via computer. For over an hour we were able to converse and see each other in real-time. She has been gone from here for 83 days now and I think she became even prettier! On a cute note: she was wqearing her SIDNEY ATHLETCS t-shirt.
September 18, 2011 12:58:02 Observer   Tony CR 20- That was not the flood that washed out your bridge. It was a large fish swimming upstream and hit it. We don't have floods on this end of Masonville.
September 18, 2011 12:15:31 Tony - CR-20   To \"What?\"...rebuilding the home to be my Primary Residence. Plus...I'm not looking for a FEMA handout...looking to get low interest loan to pay for the replacement. Know your facts before you shoot your mouth off.
September 18, 2011 00:33:15 what?   Good post Masonville Resident, "no one here needs help that is certainly needed elsewhere in our county."
September 18, 2011 00:27:28 what?   And there goes some tax dollars to a SEASONAL home!! Kinda like "We don't have to pay for it it's coming from a grant (tax payer money out of our pockets,money from China we are broke)! Obama and Fema will help us out ! Hard working taxpayer money hard at work,,,thank you China!! Maybe someday we will wake up and help each other out as a community to those that NEED instead of dishing our tax payer money to those who want it.
September 17, 2011 23:33:25 Tony - CR-20   D A M is censored...WOW LOL
September 17, 2011 23:32:14 Tony - CR-20   I lost my bridge that leads to my property on CR-20 and I'm putting in a claim. *CENSORED* floods darn washed it away! BTW...we were declared a town that qualifies for assistance.
September 17, 2011 18:02:55 Masonville Resident   Maybe no one in Masonville will try to get something for nothing from FEMA since we were not classified as a disaster town, therefore no one here needs help that is certainly needed elsewhere in our county. But there are always those who thinks a way of life is something for nothing ...

Along came the floods and washed the foolish man's house down the river while the wise man's house stood firm. But the foolish man knew the taxpayers would rebuild his house through FEMA and it would be bigger and better. Guess he was not so foolish after all!" (thanks to Matthew 7:24-27 {paraphrased})
September 16, 2011 09:29:20 part time resident   hopefully no one in our town will take undeserved advantage of FEMA and turn in false claims. There are so many people that have lost everything and they are the ones who should receive the help. Some times people will think this is a way to get new furnaces or washers and dryers, when they have water in their basements each time the rain is heavy because they just do no maintenence to their homes.
September 16, 2011 04:39:00 what?   bertimouse; Obama's “American Jobs Program” consists primarily of spending $450 billion,and eventually probably more than $1 trillion total, on temporary jobs for UNION (a little tit for tat kickback for the big business union special interest lobbyists)workers, including primarily construction workers and teachers. Private sector jobs were NOT mentioned as recipients of this money.Obama has already spent $821 billion dollars to 'save' the economy with his 'stimulus' The unemployment rate, which has been above 9 percent in all but two months since May 2009.When taking into account those who stopped looking for employment or those who took part-time jobs, the rate rose to 16.2% from 16.1%.The rate was 7.8 percent when Obama took office.President Obama called on taxpayers to send their hard-earned money to the federal government so that Washington can pour that money into public school construction to “modernize 35,000 public schools.” Our public schools in THIS area, and in much of the US have closed after spending millions of tax dollars on construction after declining enrollment! These buildings are either empty or sold at a loss, after spending millions of tax dollars in improvements. Obama proposes do do more of the same!
