... Why don't they check on welfare percipients? ... There's some of these that's on welfare ... food stamps, they got live-ins. Why don't the live-ins pay half of it ... livin' expenses and things like that? They are fraud goin' on in this country. ... No wonder they don't wanna work.
I've got some tips for the Tiger Ridge family with the infant in arms walkin' in the middle of Savannah Avenue on Halloween night. ... The ones that almost got hit by the car.

And you can also try goin' to the festivals ... like the Eastern Heights festival. It's safe and free.
This is to the idiot that called in about ... the TEA Party. ... That's a bunch of crap! You're just makin' ... crap up now. ... TEA Party do not tell small business ... stop hirin' people to hurt Obama. ... That's just ridiculous. ...

False accusations without proof are folly for the ignorant. Your rhetoric against the TEA Party does not harm us. It only makes you look foolish.
