Allen County Poverty Level Takes A Jump!

We've got MORE "poverty-level" people in Allen County these days....interestingly enough, we ALSO have more hispanics. Anyone care to do the math here? This is according to the statistics released by the U.S. Census Bureau in its 2005 American Community Survey on Tuesday. Funny thing...looking around MY neighborhood at ALL the new SUVs and autos...SOMEONE (make that a LOT of SOMEONES) is/are doing better than most "working" people (we DO still have a few around here that WORK...we really do)...and it's NOT because THEY are working...THEY are NOT. Hmm...must be all that DRUG TRADE nonsense we see going on (that others tell us is all in our imagination)...yeah, that's it! Crime's going down too...soon it will be NON-EXISTENT....and then we won't NEED police anymore...LMAO!

((Love to find out what THESE people that say this are eating, drinking and smoking))

Yessiree...THEY are those welfare grabbing, HUD house living, NON-working sub-class of people we see daily. THEY'RE doing JUST fine...at everyone else's expense. At least someone is making out on all this, eh? While the "median" income is about $46,300 (and most of our FWCS educators are WOEFULLY below that number, as are many police AND firemen), how many of us (individually) can say we're either AT that level, or above it...(show of hands...anyone?). Throughout Indiana, the poverty level has gone UP.....must be all those *new* welfarers (sic) seeking "de good life".
There IS good news....believe it or not...median household income went UP as well, from $42,565 in 2004 to $45,356 in 2005, a 6.6 percent increase. OK...so when does this take effect, because I'm just not seeing it. And I'm STILL waiting.
“Most of the people who leave welfare for work are leaving for jobs that pay $7 or $8 an hour,” said Joan Entmacher, vice president of the National Women’s Law Center, an advocacy group based in Washington. “Under the best of circumstances, they are just getting by.”

Aren't we ALL pretty much doing that already?
