Bullshit Gypsy, if you want to back out haul ass.
Back to the facts, it should have been your states Senators Reps. and Governor's responsibility to request the aid be added into the package, just like every other state has requested billions .

did I say you mentioned him?(Obama) you referred to the stimulus package which he is putting together with his staff, so to me that was a reference, and he is not my boy, that is silly, he is a very intelligent person,and I do like him.you also slurred Kentucky by saying we turned our backs on Appalachian,and our reps, and governors didn't request something for these people, do you know that for certain?now I am through~

gypsy wrote:like i said it is not ObAMA,only.. there have been presidents before him,he has only been there a couple months, and with a big mess to clean up~ I think those people have been hurting a long time~ your expecting him to fix it over night?? is a bit farfetched~ why not complain about the past presidents, you are zeroing in on Obama only? hey that is your right, which is also my right to complain about the past years..

if you look it up you will see the help that is being done~and the concern..


This is where Obama came into the discussion from you not me . I was asking if your state had applied for aid since all I could find was from 2001 nothing on google since then. I am not slamming your state I just asked a question, don't as you say TWIST words gypsy.

look ssc I said you referred to him by saying the stimulus package wasn't mentioning Appalachia, also you stated Kentucky gov had not requested aid~ I ask you if you knew that as fact~ anyway it was a decent debate,,I will state again the stimulus package will also help the people in Appalachia now I am really tired of discussing this~ it is a no win situation as most of our discussions are. I do not mean that as hateful either..

Again not bashing your state nor Governor...asking what is wrong with your state kicking up or asking for funds..that isn't bashing in my eyes..but I agree this topic has gotten very boring.
I do hope the package reaches alot of needy children and not just the pet projects of the pork mongers. I don't consider the package all to the credit of Obama, some funding was carry overs from Bush that had been voted down.
