End of federal unemployment benefits
hits hard in Dorchester

Post & Courier [Charleston, SC], by Brendan Kearney

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 12/1/2012 8:06:39 AM

Crystal Thompson’s frustration was palpable as she settled down at a table in the SC Works Career Center in Summerville this week. She swore she already had filled out a particular unemployment form on a prior visit. Her 5- and 3-year-old daughters were fidgeting and chatty. And then, of course, there was the larger circumstance that brought her into 2885 West 5th North St. Wednesday afternoon: no job. Thompson made $18 an hour as a senior account executive at Daniel Island giftware manufacturer Davis & Small until March, and the 36-year-old single mother hasn’t been able to find suitable replacement

Comments:
Where is the children´s father? And what is the definition of "suitable"? She could do as I did: find a reliable woman with excellent references who will care for the children in her home for a lot less than a licensed day-care, and then get whatever job she can find, do her very best, get promotions and raises--well, you all know how that can happen. If all else fails, she can work for a temp agency as a bookkeeper. Or start her own bookkeeping business. I did it during a recession.

If the good people of Dorchester are unhappy about her plight, they should help her. Personal misfortune should be dealt with locally, not federally.

I am extremely tired of seeing stories about "single" mothers. See did not get to be a mother by herself. If she could narrow the list of possible fathers down to twenty or thirty then DNA could identify the "single" father(s). He (they) could then help support the children. The rest of us who have no connection to the "single" parents should not have to pay for the irresponsibilities of these people.. Even that airhead Flukes knows how to prevent being a "single" parent. Planned Parenthood would most likely give her pills.

In general I´m just about fed up with the women who get pregnant first thing out of the gate with whatever comes along…then whines ´I´m a single mother´ as an excuse for sucking off the government teat and as if they didn´t have anything to do with their predicament. There should be some responsibility for your own life. And by the way…´learning from my mistakes´ is a hard way to go through life.

The above posters said the same thing as I think. Read through the responses coming from this young woman. Arrogance and entitlement through-and-through, along with a toss under the bus for her mother, who is helping her.

I would have been nice if this "single mother" had a stable marriage before she popped out two children. Then there would have been two paychecks to support the kids. I guess I´m old fashioned, though.

You get more of what you subsidize, and less of what you tax.

I am always struck by women/girls who think it´s cool to be pregnant, wear body-hugging t-shirts to accentuate their growing bellies, but then do a lot of whining when reality sets in.

There is a father/sperm donor out there who has fathered one or more of those kids. I am guessing that babydaddy has forgotten progeny all over that area of SC.

This woman would have been in her thirties when the first child was born. She does not have the ignorance of youth as an excuse.

Did you see the amount she was getting per week for being unemployed? I feel nothing for her but contempt. Do not have kids out of wedlock - simple solution. I remember reading about a group of young highschool girls all getting preggers so they could move out of their home and all live together. I do so wonder what happened to them. Want to bet they are on welfare and expecting second or third kid?

My first question for this woman is, "For whom did you vote?" I am sure of the answer. She was probably more concerned with "reproductive" rights than the economy and jobs. Not very smart....

Point of order #15, the pay quoted would be adjusted based on the area. In my area it is minimum wage. No full time positions.

I´m such a dweeb, that would be #12, of course...and I even looked at it before I posted. My bad.
Addendum, the rate of pay doesn´t excuse not looking. When I was laid off from $25hr ( that had been cut the month before from $36hr) I accepted the first reasonably compatible job, but it was $10hr. That´s life.

A truly emetic announcement from the grim but indispensable Swedish flatpack furniture emporium IKEA: they are considering changing the recipe of their most popular food line--meatballs--in order to help save the world from global warming. [Snip] IKEA--the place you go to, reluctantly, because the furniture is so cheap and practical, not because you want to save the planet for Mother Gaia--actually employs a "head of sustainability"? If that´s not a strong dump signal for the stock, I don´t know what is. What´s worse, though, is that IKEA actually admits to allowing the kind of food it serves in its restaurants

Choc horror: It might be Easter but the
world is running out of chocolate because
demand in China is outstripping cocoa
bean production and forcing prices up
Daily Mail [UK], by Emma Glanfield    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/19/2014 5:41:28 PM     Post Reply
The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

An investigation into Birmingham schools at the centre of a plot to introduce hardline Islamist teaching has found pupils were illegally segregated and non-Muslim students were discriminated against. [Snip] Department for Education inspectors were ordered into Park View School and its sister schools, Golden Hillock and Nansen, after a letter dubbed ´Trojan Horse´ was uncovered apparently outlining a plot by Muslim hardliners to drive moderate headteachers out of schools. The unsigned and undated letter claimed that a small but radical group of Muslims was pursuing its own agenda in the classrooms, with uncooperative headteachers and governors forced out.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

   

 



 
Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers
´domestic terrorists´ following show of
force against the federal government

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
