I didn't say Limbaugh wasn't capable of paying for the security, I questioned who actually footed the bill. Where has it been stated that there were death threats specific to this event? Was the general public (ie:TAX PAYERS) kept from entering the Capitol because of this? You answer my questions with questions which leads me to believe you have no idea and just want to make a show of backing your man.
Who paid for the extra security that Mr. Tilley thought was required? Where is evidence of threats toward Limbaugh? What I saw in the days/months leading up to this was people exercising their right to free speech and protest. Pity Repubs seem to think this is so outlandish and threatening that they feel the need to hide from it.

OR they could just expand the bus hours so people might actually use public transportation.
Good morning! :)
I had to stay away from this discussion for a few days because after reading Lifer’s comment I was honestly too repulsed to respond in an adult manner. Lifer: Your comment was disgusting and disrespectful to anyone who’s been in an abusive relationship. What I did was necessary for my safety and the safety of my children. The circumstances leading up to my divorce are none of your business and I won’t dignify your callousness and ignorance with an explanation. The point of the entire thing was I had 2 choices – apply for childcare assistance so I could WORK or stay home and collect welfare. I chose to work. I set a good example for my sons and I can look at myself in the mirror because of that choice.
I had no problem caring for my children financially until I left my abusive ex-husband. I walked out - no money, no job, nothing but the clothes and necessities I could fit in the car. I took the first job I was offered because I had to care for my boys but it wasn't enough to pay the bills and child care so I applied for child care assistance (instead of food stamps or TANF). Should I have just stayed home and drawn welfare until I could find a better job? Stayed with my husband? This is one of the better programs they offer low income people. At least the ones applying for and using this are actually WORKING and trying to make life better for their family.
I went to court for a parking ticket I had forgotten to pay and saw a young "lady" there wearing footed pajamas and a sweatshirt jacket that said "F*ck You" on the back of it. This girl couldn't have been more than 19 (one of her charges was MIP) and such blatant disrespect for the court is, I'm sure, indicative of what is to come for her later in life.
