TAYLOR, Mich. - A chaotic scene erupted at the Taylor Human Services Center when the crowd waiting for a Section 8 Housing voucher distribution got out of control. The center is located at Eureka and Lange Roads. That´s between on Eureka, between Beech Daly and Inkster. Police say thousands of people from all over the area were at the center. Many were homeless, single moms, or disabled. They were hoping to get help paying for their housing from the government. 7 Action News is being told there were 1,000 vouchers available and 5,000 people showed up trying to get one.

Photos of the crowd please? What is your guess on what the photos may look like?

5000 show up for free housing. Wonder how many of them would show up for a job interview?

Drudge has video with the story. Not all the people were black, one black lady said she came last night after work, apparently many of the people were elderly and/or disabled. I´m sure it was young Obama voters who caused the disturbance, but rather than show their innate violence it shows more the incompetence of the government in the way this was planned. Take care of the elderly and the genuinely disabled first next time, then let the parasites have what´s left.

No one is making fun of genuine disabled.
They are mocking a government that is fostering dependency impossible to support.
Single moms -especially the Baby Mammas- are being preyed upon by irresponsible males and a dem Party that wants to keep them dependent upon the government. Julia.
As to the women with the oxygen tent- shouldn´t she have an appointment for housing?
A cattle call is no way to distribute housing- it should be based upon age, health and need.

Judge Judy does cases from time to time where the plaintiff is receiving section 8 housing, and is suing various individuals for for non payment of rent. (section 8 pays the rent directly to the landlord. And it is illegal to rent out rooms in section 8 housing.)
And Judge Judy gives an angry lecture to the plaintiff, under these circumstances, explaining that she (usually) is stealing money from the taxpayers.
Other cases will have the defendant boyfriend being sued for various bills. Same deal.. illegal.

The great recession (and number of under-employed lawyers) has increased the number of ´disabled´ dramatically.

Do the vouchers come with Obamaphones?

They should screen them by how many times they voted for BO in the last election.

Voted only once? Back of the line. Voted two times, next to the back. Runners up for top spot could be sorted by things like whether they used one or more names and how many precincts.

So if you voted for BO 7 times using 3 names it counts less than voting 7 times using 2 name ´cuz that´s a waste of non-maxxed names.
Runners up could get parole credits for their next crimes etc.

BTW, the "crowd" was shown on local news and I didn´t see any "disabled" people waiting for help. As for that poor little person who said she was "freezing cold"?

Of course they rioted. They voted for NØbama with the understanding that they would keep on getting all the free stuff they wanted.

How dare NØbama not personally assure that there were enough free apartments (with free big screen TV´s, free cable, free electricity, free food delivered daily, free home visits by NØbamacare doctors, etc, etc, etc).

By God (or NØbama their true messiah), they DESERVE the free stuff!!! They ´´earned it´´ by being born here and being loyal Demon-RAT voters!!!!!

The population in MI is what you think it is, but let´s not be so cynical. We are suppose to be Christians.

There is a new poverty in this country like we have not seen for many years.

Some days I visit a prayer site and the situation in this country is bad. There are many praying for jobs, any job, or praying they aren´t laid off, or they can´t keep their small business open any longer. Others are in fear of being homeless because they can´t pay increasing rent or being foreclosed. They have used up all of their resounces for medical bills and/or basic needs. Many can´t afford to repair their vehicles to drive to work because they have been unemployed for so long. Some have to live with relatives that have no room for them. It´s very sad reading those annonomous prayers. They aren´t asking for handouts online.

The elderly and disabled cannot manage on Social Security anymore with increased costs of everything. Unfortunately, single mothers move to the first of the line- just because.

It was a busy Saturday afternoon at Penn Square and this was happening up on the second floor in front of a growing crowd. A woman, accused of shoplifting, now topless and wrestling with security on the ground. Her bare chest exposed to everyone who walks by. Almost immediately people start getting out their cell phones and capturing the shirtless showdown including the person who captured this video you´re watching. The man who shot this cell phone video walked out of Dillards and immediately saw a nearly naked brawl between a topless woman and a mall security guard. Witnesses say the security officer called

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

Why President Obama

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but
