SBI FBI won't touch DSS. If you file a complaint with the State DHHS, DSS retaliates more. If you try to find who has oversight over DSS, you find out it's nobody, but the state keeps you on a wild goose chase making you think there is for a while - the county manager says its a special DSS board - you call them and they act really pissed that you bothered them - they handle finances for DSS they say but nothing else. You finally realize there is no oversight, and that complaint you filed with the state DHHS is probably what got your loved ones taken away. And God knows what they'd do to me if I I'ded myself here, not that they won't know if they read it.

Nancy, GOD has spoken, finally! I would have never given you this length of time to repent your action. If you don’t repent, then, good luck with all those babies souls you have helped to be murdered. God will no longer know you, EVER.
With women like her pushing the abortion pill....It makes the kid in Tampa who tricked the girl look almost like a saint......Hes a murderer.....But Nancy and Hilary are of the worse kind.....I know women personally that were good women at one time......But this crap bag media has changed them......We have too much Godlessness going on in this country, and all I know is I will protect the little ones in my family from this type of Evil.......They may hate me for it because I am not MTV cool, but there is just too much evil controlling women in this country.......I see it when I go out to eat, and an old couple are not talking.......Its the media that is doing it.....Its Obama.
Thank God for The Truth.....
Thank God for The Blaze......

Vista/Americorp has been in WV since the 1960s, Ask Senator Jay Rockefeller? Jay moved to WV where He worked as a Vista Corp worker for one year before he ran for office in WV. Vista/Americorp is alive with government workers in all 55 counties. Beware of Federal Money and the War on Poverty. . .all it begets is more poverty and handouts from the DNC stooges for votes. It is really odd that McDowell Co. is listed every 10 yrs. as the most improved co. in the state with better health, education and etc. Just who wrote this report, Gail Manchin? You need to Google Gail and see all the ruckus she is causing at the WV Board of Education.
McDowell county has always been last in all 55 countries, even with all the handouts. This is a Senior Citizen county! Property Taxes and the Lottery pays for Education in WV. Seniors don’t build mansions so the Property Tax Rate is really low and; without jobs, no taxes to collect! McDowell County citizens are the Salt of the Earth. They have Love in that county and I am sure that the children there are not lacking in God’s Love! Speaking of War, WV young men and women have served this country by joining the Arm Forces and have died for this country in every war? These young men and women are true Americans; they put their country obligations before themselves. You only getting the dark side of McDowell Co. I have to ask why? Most folks are good Bible people who help each other. This story makes me sick because it is a HIT piec
Flamingfartsyndrome, they already know the answers that you share with this poll. They don’t need your IP address, they already have control over your entire life experience. If you think you are safe from the Worldwide Government Dogs, then, I think you need to take a reality check.
By taking this poll, You have the power to “spit” in their faces! If you are a beliver of the truth and believe in Life; then, God is your only answer against these “fowl dogs of the devil”. Buck up for the Coming! Remember Earth is a temporary life; there is a far better place for your soul to be free! Truth will set you free.

We the People have 2 years to make sure that not one of these traitors is elected in the House. It is also time to find the new party players.
When the middle class and below finds out that they are going to get taxes too, they are going to see that their lives will change forever.
Jobs (money) are going to leave the country; business are going under; and the elite are going to take over all of the personal property, money, retirement, and laugh all the way to their private, elitist bank. The 2 million federal worker are going to lose their jobs because the Treasury will have no money to pay for their wages and other compensation. Good Luck folks . . . especially Congress; You will be the Leaders of the trash heap of the world. Good Luck for all the food stamp folks, sorry, no more food, the famers have left the country for the South.

It is time to change parties and get ready to elect WE the People!
I'm with you. We must take our country back. Damn takers.
I'm with you.
And who would "We the people" be then? It is clear that there is no one leader on the conservative side that enough people agree on to represent "We the People". National politics are big league and require massive organization, big donors, serious planning to have a chance to win. The people that know how to do that get paid a lot of money, where is that coming from? How do you know you can trust them?
It might make you feel good to make simple declarations like you did but to actually make something happen requires a whole lot more money and work than you give credit for.

If Republicans vote this bill in then, I will change my voter card tomorrow with the county clerk! I will never vote for Dems or Repubs again, EVER.
I did that a long time ago- didn't help. Just sayin'
Thank you!!! We don't need idiots like you on our side.

Why do people want to prove that the BIBLE is a fairytale? The BIBLE is a very, great book with life lessons. However, if your eyes are not open, then, you are blinded to the truth. Therefore, you will never read the BIBLE’s secrets and you will continue to live in the fairytale life that you have chosen.
Only the enlighten folk will see the truth of God’s Word. Unbelievers will always be blind to the truth by their free choice of arrogance.
This Blaze story is trying to portray the Bible's account of the flood in a convoluted way, attaching a scientific approach to explain away the Biblical account, and to change the facts to support some other explanation. The Black Sea could indeed have formed by a flooding of the area but the Bible account states Noah's flood was a global event, not a local one.
Good question, but simple to answer.
Atheists are very, very insecure in their faith. Consider this; if they were correct, and at death we are all simply worm food, then there is ZERO upside to convincing anyone of this. You die and are gone (according to them); end of story regardless of one's beliefs. Doesn't help others at all to fall in line with the atheist's beliefs. Yet atheists are absolutely evangelical in their efforts to get others to believe in their faith. Why?
Only one possible answer: they are insecure and feel threatened whenever they meet up with someone who disagrees. Strikes fear, since they realize they, perhaps, are making the biggest mistake of their lives.
Pity they can't cowboy up and face their insecurity.
YellowFin "Noah’s flood was a global event, not a local one"
No it was not. Nor does the bible say this if you will bother to study it in the ancient Hebrew. The flood was to eradicate the giants, who did not inhabit the whole earth. In all His generations concerning Noah was talking about pedigree. Chinese history spans roughly 8,000 years and they built the wall to protect themselves from the giants. They have stories of the year of the great flood with water cresting the wall in portions of their empire. Stories dating back about 5,000 years. Not a coincidence. The Catabole covered the earth about 14,000 years ago, talked of in Jeremiah 4:24. Not Noah's flood. The dove brought back an olive branch because there were still olive trees on portions of the earth, still dry. Perpetrating incorrect accounts clearly disprovable only serves to turn away the secular who might have otherwise listened. What remains of the Arc is petrified and resting across the valley from Mount Ararat. The locals have known this for thousands of years and to this day try to keep things hidden and Westerners away. Likely because they do not like Jews, Christians, and no doubt because they do not want a Starbucks opening up nearby.
People need to try harder when they study either the Word or history.
Genesis 6:17 Then I myself will bring the flood of water over the earth to destroy from under heaven every living thing that breathes; everything on earth will be destroyed.
I can’t read Hebrew, but that’s what it says in every translation of the Bible or Torah that I’ve ever seen, though I certainly agree that it is impossible, and I think that anyone who believes in a worldwide flood is crazy.
Being more specific it was in the mountains of Ararat, with Mount Ararat being the largest. Which is how the ark can rest across the valley from Mount Ararat yet still taken in legend and folktales to be on Mount Ararat. Just a small language difficulty between various peoples through history. Likewise the common error in teaching that the flood covered the whole earth is merely poor understanding of Hebrew. In effect 'the whole world' meant pertaining to the tribes and peoples in the area at the time. For example the Chinese were not part of these, their "whole earth" was Asia. They had bad floods but endured mostly intact. Noah took two of every flesh from His part of the "whole earth", likely mainly the animals they herded and used for sustenance. The Hebrew text does not imply two of every species on the planet. The visible portion remains of the ark can be seen on google earth if you know where to look. Most of it is buried. Watch this video.
Chet Hempstead "Dr Vel Genesis 6:17 Then I myself will bring the flood of water over the earth to destroy from under heaven every living thing that breathes; everything on earth will be destroyed."
This was the Catabole, long before Noah, Jer 4:24. You read Hebrew in error and I can prove it with your own quote from your understanding. Simple. "every living thing that breathes; everything on earth will be destroyed". Noah breathes, His family breathes, His two of every flesh (animals) breathe. See your error? If the dove was destroyed, and the olive branch (it was alive), how did it go find one and bring it back? I am a Christian, believe in God, yet am ashamed of the total lack of logic and critical thinking Christians daily exhibit to others. Lazy, slothful study. You confuse Noah's flood with the Catabole 14,000 years ago. This flood did destroy all, God destroyed all and in Genesis restored the earth. The first two verses in the Word are separated by roughly 4.5 billion years and likely few will see this error as evidenced by teaching common to bible thumpers. The earth BECAME (not WAS) void and without form in the Catabole, the war to put down satan. Clearly stated in the Hebrew. Jer 4:24 describes it well. Mastodons frozen in the arctic. Guess why. Also more than one Adam is described. Adam, and Ha Adam. Oh well put it on a shelf, I wonder if the unlearned will ever learn? To rightly divide the Word realize it goes back and forth in time.
"Yet atheists are absolutely evangelical in their efforts to get others to believe in their faith." - VOTERIGHTDAMMIT
Like most Christians, most atheists don't push their beliefs in other people's faces. You only hear about the crazy atheists who want to tear down any public mention of religion. It's equivalent to the media focusing on crazy Christians who burn Korans or protest military funerals.
Before you get so high and mighty, think about the fact that we can control our actions, but we can't control our beliefs. I would love to be Christian, but to me it looks like the facts contradict science and history, so what can I do? I can act in a Christian manner but I can't force myself to believe. Similarly, you couldn't chose to NOT believe even if you wanted to. You could definitely act in a sinful manner, but you can't change your belief away from God.
Although I applaud you for your great insight to the specifics, that you clearly explained .I take issue with you on some issues. First , there has been many great biblical teachers, through the years . And I never once heard them deliver this assertion ,that you have just laid out ( 2 Adams). Second and the most important ,you say that you are a Christians , then in the same sentence take a jab at other Christians. There is only ONE message that Christ mandated us to do as Christians. And that is to ..‘Spread the Good News’. Not one soul will be saved by knowing the specifics of what happened to Noah’s ark and whether it was the whole earth that was flooded or just a certain area. I would also like too know. Have you brought a single person to the cross and accept the lord Jesus as their personal savior ..? With all your knowledge of the flood and the first book of the bible, that you clearly have advanced knowledge of. Be careful that in your quest to enlighten other fellow Christians , you don’t walk with your nose above other brothers and sister in the faith and find yourself being grouped together with the Pharisees , that Jesus gave such a stern warning too.
@ DR VEL
So you must believe that God only created a small portion of the world in the beginning, or that Judgment day will only affect a small portion of the world's population as well?
2Pe 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
If it was a localized flood, perhaps you believe God is a liar:
Gen 9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15 And I will remember my covenant, which [is] between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that [is] upon the earth.
If it was a local flood, and God promised to never bring a local flood, then God is a liar because there have been many local floods over the years. But there has never been another flood that destroyed the whole earth as Noah's flood did.
I already told you, I can’t read Hebrew at all, but I find it hard to believe that every singe translator throughout history except for you reads it so badly that they can’t tell the difference between the past and future tense.
Gup20, your comments are simply too lacking in intelligent critical thinking, reading comprehension among other skills, to be worth a reply.
HOOT_OWL "Dr Vel, Although I applaud you for your great insight to the specifics, that you clearly explained . There has been many great biblical teachers, through the years . And I never once heard them deliver this assertion ,that you have just laid out ( 2 Adams).

First, except for the elect the whole world will worship the antichrist. Intelligent thought would derive the conclusion that therefore all the millions of Christians who are not the elect, have not been taught truth now have they. Else they would not be worshiping the beast or his image, i.e., the great falling away. Also a simple reading of scriptures without bias would clearly show the two Adams being mentioned. If you had a clue concerning ancient Hebrew you would know the addition of 'Ha' indicates a different person than the Adam without the 'Ha' before the name.
Second, Jim Jones was leader of a 'Christian church'. Are you saying the Lord said not to speak out against those forcing parents to give purple coolaid to their kids then themselves? You would be one sorry example to defend the actions of these church leaders now wouldn't you.

Hillary had the background for the Sec. of State, Rice does not!
Voting for Rice is like voting for Joe Biden. Joe hasn’t a clue to think on his own and neither is this woman strong enough to say NO to Obama! It takes a strong person to hold this office with all of these wars and so many country’s economic failures.
What is Rice’s past record to solve problems at the level needed at the UN or the State Department? I haven’t heard much from her in the last 4 years. It seems she hangs with women leaders; however, she hasn’t established the background that she can handle world leaders or the large, give away budget monies that the State Department distributes around the world. That alone makes her ineligible for this postition.
If the Senate votes for Susan, we will have another Eric Holder that Obama won’t fire for her/his lack of management skills along with getting us in trouble around the world.
There are many people that could hold the Office of the Sec. of State. We don’t need a political operative. Obama should consider Bill Clinton as he was the one that won the election for him. At least Bill knows all the world leaders and he is the biggest charmer in the Democratic Party.

Well, he probably didn’t have to hack as our government is probably selling the email addresses on the world’s black market. There is no government agency that has any honor or cares about American Privacy. As the World turns . . . our new nightmare life churns towards the end because of the UN.
 November 27, 2012 at 3:00pm
I need my stove and oven. I love home cooked meals! Where is my radio, tv, and bookshelf for all of my Glenn Beck Books? Where is my sewing machine and hand sewing supplies? Where is my closet for my clothes and family pictures. Where do you store all these memories.
This shed shows a bed in the middle of the biggest room; this looks like an Obama Elderly Home where Granny sleeps all day and has no physical or mental stimulation. Is Granny allowed visitors? Do they join her on the big bed? Granny will surely die within 6 months in this crackerbox house.
Wouldn’t another bedroom suite be built cheaper on the family home on the first floor?
Why is Granny not living with the family? I do. I’m the sitter for the kids, home school educator, cook, housemaid, and etc. The working family has less stress except with Granny’s personal attitude. Granny is the one who would want the extra suite to herself after spending at least 15 hours with the wild, active kids everyday. I bet I know more about video games than the parents living in the home.
Besides, parents brought you into the world and it is payback time! Where is the love in this crackerbox?
I was thinking the same thing, but from another angle.
What parent wants to be put in maximum security? If you need someone to care for you, that involves CARE not technology at a distance.
How do you teach children to care for others by putting your loved ones in the yard, and watching them on an app on your phone?
where is my gun safe???????????????????
125K????? That's the price of a new house in some states!
Delores at CH WV - I agree with you. It is too expensive for such a small place. A room and bathroom built on the home would be much better. To be stuck in the backyard and monitered from a distance is cold. After being a parent and lovingly raising a family, I think people deserve better. Why not just go to a nursing home. At least you would have other people around to enjoy and talk to and activities to join. If you are past that point and are almost bed ridden, who would want to be alone. Bah humbug.
"Monitored from a distance"? Okay...
Lighten up, this isn't anything more than making a backyard apartment for your elderly relative so that they can stay with you, have their own privacy and independence, and a nice place to stay that can keep track of them in case they have an emergency.
It's actually pretty neat. Yeah sure it's expensive, but it has tons of useful things that you won't think about if you built one yourself.
And who said they were confined in there? This is meant for a back yard. They're only stuck there if you force them to be. Is it really any worse than a Granny Attic? If anything, this is a major improvement over that concept.
This little "high tech" shed costs more than my house. I think I can build a better one from the local storage shed place, twice the size with all the same technology for a lot, lot less.
Besides this being a fancy jail - the security camera is what shocked me - how cruel. This looks like a form of elderly abuse. Lets keep granny locked up away from human contact and if the security alarm catches her escaping, go get her and lock her back up.
If granny has dementia and needs a security camera to monitor her, it is time for assistance living, not a fancy jail cell in your back yard.
What a Fantastic Rip-off, These homes would be for $125,000.00! One Match & poof, Nothing but ash remains.
In an Earth-Quake, Forest Fire, Tornado or Hurricane, These " Matchbox " type homes wouldn't stand a chance!
Yet, for the same price (or less) a Comfortable two-bedroom, Fully equipped, " FIRE-PROOF, Nearly indestructible, Dome Home! Log on to ; Monolithic Domes & see what I mean. These Domes are made out of Cement, Re-bar or Basalt woven rods ( Stronger & liter ) than steel & they do not rust.
A Closed cell Foam is in its core. A Quick Example; a 20 ft. dome in Mich. used less than $250.00 All winter long last year for heating! They had a LP Gas Stove & Furnace. But your usage may be different. This story above Sounds more like a " Get Rich Scam ", than a real story for caring for the Older generation. Unless the price includes the Purchase of the Land as well.
I could have a house that is at least twice as large stick built for less. It would have custom everything as well. These sheds are a complete ripoff.
You people are really over-sensationalizing this. I know that if I was an elderly individual being taken care of by my children I would relish the privacy that comes with something like this apartment. You guys act like they're locked up in prison when that's simply not the case. They can leave whenever they want and I imagine in most cases would be welcome in the main house at any time. But having something like this gives them the option of retreating away into privacy when they feel like it, to a much closer place than a nursing home that is miles away and a safer place than an apartment that is not tailored to the needs of the elderly like these cottages are.
Get a grip, for crying out loud.
We built a suite onto our home for $20k, 15 years ago for my hubby's Mom. It has a lrg bedroom, full bath, livingroom, own patio door connected to our patio, and a portable kitchen. My motherinlaw was a wonderful person, but passed on 2 yrs ago. We use it now as a guest suite and tv room. Building a POD in the backyard is telling the elderly that you do not want to deal with them.....out of sight, out of mind. This is a terrible way to treat the elderly.
Out of sight out of mind would be putting them in a nursing home.
Delores, the love is probably frozen in the freezer and comes out at predetermined times! This looks like a church and is so high tech it feels sterile. As a retired nurse, I can tell you that getting rid of area rugs and having proper lighting is one of the best ways to prevent tripping and falls. You want to provide privacy, but a room with their own door is enough. You need to monitor the meds, not a machine that could go bonkers. You can get a Hoyer lift to help family members in and out of bed to a chair if they can't help at all (get instructions on how to use it- it is hydraulic). Imagine the local laws if this is considered a medical unit? Home with the family is the best place for grandma and grandpa. My mother took care of her mom while my sister and I were young ones and the experience was priceless. You learn to value old age and the wisdom of the years. This pod at least brings the grandparents nearer to your home.
This is a little too much like a shed with no close companionship!
When trying to care for my mother, I wished for an invention that help me lift her and transport her to the toilet, wheelchair...perhaps a track on the ceiling with a chair or something. But of course, keep her in our home!!
Being raised in a home filled with Grandparents and Great Grandparents, I find it sad that more families don't utilize and treasure older family members. Plus, there is always a bit of drama and gossip, and built in babysitting. I have loving memories of my Great Grandfather, a kind and gentle soul. Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa, Love you.
I totally agree with you. That cracker box looked awful to me. And I also agree about grandparents living with the family. They do it in Europe and it's considered normal. Americans were not taught how to care for aging parents. Just what you said about home schooling makes it worth anything. Grandparents today are probably the best generation to teach children life skills.
SSHHHH... Don't tell anyone. This is just the decoy with a secret elevator down to the 3,500sq. ft. house with all the room you need for my gun safe, my sewing machines and suplies, food storage and my library to rival Belle's given her by the Beast.
November 27, 2012 at 12:27am
These dictators make their laws and it seems the American Taxpayer are always giving them billions of dollars and arms to oppress their countrymen and woman.
The UN Human Rights Commission has it all wrong. We give money to break Human Rights all over the world, not on US soil. The biggest Human Rights payment goes to the United Nations Thugs.
The UN is not welcome in America! Find another nation to steal!
November 27, 2012 at 12:21am
What a stupid question? He hasn’t spent one hour in the WH that he hasn’t exceeded his power!
This man has been allowed to plow through every asset of our American treasure.
His wife thinks she has as much power as the President. She doesn’t have this authority. We don’t vote for First Lady’s to destroy are government.
Ask the question why Congress allows these two addicted spenders to plunder the US Mint? These two should be in Federal Prison for gross theft. Where are the laws that allow these two to plunder the US Treasury????? Who holds the checkbook? I don’t think that endless private spending should be allowed to bankrupt the People’s treasury. Someone like Congress should call the Treasury and put a stop on the checks or wires that these two spongers.
Guess what, Delores, your free-spending president is going after your own retirement funds.
November 27, 2012 at 12:08am
It is a terrible mistake to promote her to Sec. of State.
She would be in line for the Presidency.
She is not fit after her behavior at the UN. She failed to do the important part to support Israeli speeches at the UN.
She went to lunch just as Obama went to dinner and left the Israeli Leader at the door. By cutting Israel, these two sent a big message to the Muslim Brotherhood and our friend Israel.
She set the stage for more conflict by showing her support for the Muslim Brotherhood when she knew the truth about 4 dead men in Libya. She was just following the talking points that her leader sent her to push. She chose her behavior and now she has to pay the price of Liars.
It will be a fatal mistake to allow this woman to hold the power of the Sec. Of State. Look what the Senate did by approving Eric Holder? He like Obama thinks he is above the law. And, it seems she will too!
Rogue Senators will find themselves without voters in their party if they don’t wise up and show some Honor to We the People. Approve this Marxist and you will end up back in AZ and etc. sooner rather than later. If you love your country as you claim, then vote NO for this woman of little character.
