[quote][b]Libralady[/b] - ...New Jersey pays much more into the government than it ever receives back and now it is asking for help from a natural disaster. It is just wrong of congress and those tea party conservatives to think they don't need to pass this bill.

But that Head Start Funding should NOT be part of a Disaster Relief Bill for the NorthEast, and THAT's the point. Take the unrelated PORK out of the disaster bill, and voila! it passes. If we didn't have all those add ons in MOST legislation, perhaps we wouldn't be so BROKE right now!!! Make them vote on ONE thing at a TIME!!!

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change.

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
