    The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.

    Public Poisons Effect Us All

    in Self Help

    Small doses of public poisons from pollution and chemicals in foods, medicines, water and air, are contributing to a variety of degenerative diseases. We are being poisoned on purpose our whole lives to weaken the immune system, undermine our health and facilitate tyrannical control and depopulation. Vaccinations and flu shots with mercury and other toxin laden drugs; fluoride in water, food and drugs; sugar, aspartame, msg, GMOs and other chemicals in the food; chemicals and heavy metals in the environment; chemtrail sprays in the sky; and electromagnetic frequencies (EMF); are all part of a toxic agenda to foster illness, apathy, stress, mental disorders and early death.


    Super foods and antioxidants are needed to strengthen and maintain health. Key knowledge, detoxification, a natural lifestyle and emf protection are also crucial to better health with the depopulation challenges we are facing. Learn and prepare with friends and neighbors to take care of your families.

    Politics Done Right - Is welfare for the rich the same as welfare for the poor?

    in Politics Progressive

    Today I will be exploring whether welfare for the rich has the same implications as welfare for the poor. Last night Bill Maher said the following.


    “Republicans are right,” Bill Maher said “Not having to work and getting free money does mess people up. That’s why they love to talk about work, the virtue of work, the right to work, workfare, the dignity that comes with work.


    In fact there is only one thing conservatives believe in more than work. And that is the God given right of rich people to leave all their money to their kids so they never have to work a day in their lives. …


    I mean think about it. Republicans are on board with taxing people’s income, their investments, property, food, gas, booze, cigarettes, everything you buy, even your retirement. Those are all OK. But the one thing that must remain tax free is when money falls from the sky and lands in the lap of [explicative] Hilton. …


    If the tough love of cutting off free money for the poor is the right thing to do how can we stand by and do any less for the Conrad Hiltons of the world. They’ve never known the dignity of work either. Shouldn’t we be helping them by taxing inheritance at one hundred percent?”

    Worldwide Plaza Public Space and Shops - College Info

    in Travel

    Hello,


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com


    My name is Tammi Joyner


    I am your Host for the Show


    Today we are live from 825 8th ave between 49th and  West 50th Street, Two Worldwide Plaza is a post-war skyscraper.  The 39-floor building in Midtown West was completed by William Zeckendorf Jr. in 1989. Today, it is part of a three-building design that stretches an entire block between 8th and 9th Avenue from 49th to 50th Street.


    The building's postmodern exterior is perhaps one of the most remarkable building features. The old-fashioned brick is modernized by a copper roof and glass pyramid at the top. At certain times of the day, the sun hits the sleek rows of windows to the point that the facade shines like metal. Terraces abound in the majority of the 455 apartments, each equipped with granite countertops in modern kitchens, marble baths, and 11-foot ceilings.


    The interior garden courtyard reserved for residents is matched with the mid-block public plaza housing a diverse array of greenery as well a fountain with elaborate statues, and a nearby cafe.
