    how is it that not one of those COWS weighs less than 300 pounds looks like if a little less was spent on KFC they would not need energy assistance they would have the money .Oh wait they don’t pay for food or medical or housing

    Tax dollars wasted once again. When you have to pay an organization to give away free money, that a problem itself. They have to have a bouncy house, stage/dj, and who knows how many other give-a-ways. Plus, how many people/employees are just sitting there doing nothing? Sadly it’s just another handout so someone can spend their money on designer clothes, nails, weave, etc. There are those that truly need the help and then other degenerates that take advantage of the system -too many of the later……

    The people that apply for this if NOT working because they refuse should have to fill out job applications as well as the energy assistance application.

    Maybe ALL assistance programs should only be available at job fairs, at the very end of the booths so that you have to apply for at least 3 jobs in order to even FILL OUT an assistance application. You’d have all your id with you.
