TANF

The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) was created by the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act instituted under President Bill Clinton in 1996. Many conservatives disagreed with the previous program Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC). They believed that a welfare program for families should have a work incentive component.

Editors Note: This post originally mentioned Ambercrombie and Fitch, the offending party is actually Urban Outfitters. My mistake. This post is for Urban Outfitters and all of those people who don’t know about or understand the significance of what happened at Kent State University on May 4, 1970. It was a seminal moment for this…

Madrigal Maniac’s OSU vs. Kent State Recap

OSUKentState

After each of the first two games I wrote that Ohio State had a lot of questions to answer. Well, today they were answered … Just kidding, there wasn’t a damn thing answered today.

In the athlete’s mind the only thing wrong is they may lose millions of dollars in salary and endorsements because of a faulty drug…

How Grocery Stores Penalize Seniors

Senior Shopping

There’s a task that most people must participate in at some point in their life. It’s not a wedding, a funeral, or a graduation. It’s also not a trip to the hospital, a vacation, or the Ice Capades. To some it’s worse. It’s a trip to the grocery store. As a former store manager for…

Many Buckeye fans were scrambling to see this game. It turns out it was on the CBS Sports Network which is a premium channel a lot of fans don’t receive. There were options to see the game, but they all required you to fork over some bucks. I was lucky and found an internet link…
