Maine Gov. Paul LePage promised to ferret out welfare fraud, and he was as good as his word, hiring eight new fraud inspectors to crack down on the cheating poors. And now, the Portland Press Herald reveals the fantastic achievements of that stepped-up scrutiny:
Now hold on sir! I must state, in the most emphatic terms possible, that we, in Maine, do not waste time on such piddling excuses for alcohol. No sir...what we Mainers believe in, take great pride in, and drink to excess of is nothing less that most popular of northern New England tipples, <a href="http:\/\/en.wikipedia.org\/wiki\/Allen%27s_Coffee_Brandy" target="_blank">Allen&#039;s Coffee Brandy</a>.
Known as the &quot;Champagne of Maine&quot; and &quot;an epidemic&quot;, we Mainer&#039;s drink as assload of this stuff. Here...allow me to make you a Burnt Trailer.
(also, try the Moxicontin while you&#039;re here!)
General Scheisskopf libel.
Sadly, that was exactly the point
the should move to Washington and get them for free from the police
isn&#039;t an oodle one of those funny foreign Muslin instruments that the new Miss America played during the talent portion of the show?
He did stick to his promise to hire more inspectors.
Sounds like LePage is the real cheater in all this. Taking public money for nothing in return. His own private socializm.
I was going to use that $500/month windfall on wide screen TVs and to pay off Miss America judges. And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren&#039;t for you meddling Maine Welfare Fraud Inspector kids!
As Maine derps, so derps the nation.
Why do you like to see lobsters go hungry?
Well it sure looks like <em>someone&#039;s</em> mind was bound... and gagged.
Not paste - <i>mucilage.</i> I think it must be important somehow.
No. The point was to shame and stigmatize people who receive assistance, in an effort to convince the middle and working classes that the poor are the real enemy.
In this regard, the Governor&#039;s campaign seems to be a resounding success.
But you didn&#039;t take into account the jobs he created - all eight of them. That&#039;s almost a plethora.
45 cases? I did not know there were that many blahs in Maine to shame.
