Yes, they should take away all his benefits. They should push him completely out of society, not allow him to travel out of the country, should strap a GPS on his ankle, prevent him from living with his own children, keep him from getting any small business loans, etc

Actually, that link requires registration as well. The cached version is here:

This is what happens when the government fails to address conditions prior to implementing programs. To be blunt, the rental housing assistance is based upon way too much crony information and it completely distorts the actual help it ostensibly is supposed to dispense. As such, registered citizens will always be easy pickings for the government to use as propaganda, and in this case was used solely for that purpoose.

It really makes you wonder why the RCs are taking this crap, the man is blind, why can he not live in peace? The only thing I can see of all these insane acts against RCs is many are about to fight back.

Really? You have to ask yourself why sooooo many people in OTHER countries dislike the United States.

I am actually glad that he is fighting back.

You’ll never hear this here in the US. But we are the laughingstock of most of the civilized world, and this country (our government) is viewed with suspicion and wonderment for the things it does and tries to do.

Well, this is a truly sad article. There isn’t a day that goes by where you don’t here about our country helping out in some humanitarian way. Yet, we have people who make poor decisions in their lives and we just want to throw them away. Society has changed. You can’t turn on the TV or watch a TV show where some type of sexual connotation is shown/lesbian/prostitution/nudity ect. Yet, when we have someone who has been arrested for a sexual crime, people are outraged? People should be outraged with society!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
