    U.S. Department of Agriculture Announces Replacement SNAP Benefits in 12 Hurricane-Impacted Florida Counties


    Washington, DC - - (October 16, 2018) - - Households impacted by Hurricane Michael in 12 Florida counties could be eligible for mass replacement of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced.

    The Unusual Targeting of the Young Innocents



    For more than forty years now there has been an unusual targeting of the young. In my opinion, that targeting is not a result of coincidence. Reportedly, since 1973 Americans have killed more than 55 million children in the mother's womb. That is a massacre of unfathomable proportion. The slaughter of young, living, growing, innocent, helpless, defenseless babies in the womb is shameful, evil and sinful beyond verbal description. As the 21st Century dawned on the horizon of time, targeting of the young in school massacres (in the United States of America!) shocked the entire world. More horrifying was the repeated frequency of the unimaginable slaughter. Now, another has occurred; and, the truth is, we don't really know what to do to stop them. Whatever we do about them will probably cost this nation an exorbitant amount of time, money and other resourc...

    January 26, 2017


    Washington, DC - - (January 26, 2017) - - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced agreements with two insurance companies in Ohio and Florida settling allegations the companies violated the Fair Housing Act by denying insurance coverage to properties that contain “subsidized housing” and “low-income housing.”

    The Fair Housing Act makes it unlawful for providers of housing-related services or products, including insurance providers, to discriminate because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and familial status.

    The agreements stemmed from a Secretary-Initiated complaint HUD filed after receiving reports the insurance companies’ policies and practices had a discriminatory
