    Some of their job initiatives in the past have proven very costly to taxpayers. When brought to their attention and the attention to other interested government officials, I was branded a political dissedent and asked to leave the premises and the county. It wasn’t that direct, but when their associats engage others to set you up, you tend to get the message or just pay for the services of a lawyer until the money runs out and you’re rolling your own cigaretts under a bridge.

    The KCJFS needs to do some house cleaning where clients are concerned. Many of those on welfare should be taken off the rolls. They are experts at abusing a system designed to help people get through a time of need, not a cradle to grave lifestyle. We are in an economic crisis in the country, and the world. The money for thses programs is going going gone. You can’t get blood out of a turnip.
