$250/week for a pre school age child maybe if you are lucky…more like $300-400/week especially if the child is under 3.
After school care is about $300/month if you are lucky enough to have a facility that works and stays on school grounds….$500/month for off campus care…
If you have to add in Before school care too then maybe you would still hit $1000/month but usually not because before school care is usually only about 1-2 hours tops..
it all depends on where you live and whether the school district offers care or the YMCA or someone works with the school…some districts will subsidies the care and allow the YMCA or whoever to use their buildings…keeps the cost and the transportation down…

EVERY gun sale from a retail outlet, even if that retail outlet is at a gun show, ALREADY requires that the purchaser fill out the ATFE form 4473..
the ONLY exception is for a CWL holder who just has to present his CWL and then the number is taken down and the firearm is released…
at least that is what TX does….some States, like CA and NY have an additional waiting period on top of receiving the form back from the ATFE – AFTER it has been sent to the FBI for a Criminal Background Check. Also, on the form, the buyer is asked about “mental health” and whether they have ever been committed or being treated for certain illnesses, which have to be stated on the form.
WHERE DO THESE IDIOTS get their information? Shouldn’t EVERY member of Congress and the President ALREADY KNOW THIS!!.. There ALREADY IS A UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECK in place for felony and dangerous mental illness individuals. The form states that is is a FEDERAL FELONY to lie on the document and I believe it is a Class 1 felony.. hard time, not just a slap on the wrist, for lying on the form. The form also asks if you are buying the gun for another person and if so, how are you authorized to do so and proof must be provided. If you are not within one of the authorized areas, you CAN NOT buy a firearm for another person under any circumstances
D A M N doesn’t Congress READ their own laws? OH wait…never mind…

Oh my. This is exactly what I said was going to happen earlier today on another article. The one that first announced McCarthy had dropped out.
Goudy’s endorsement of Ryan as the smartest guy in the House might be true. But Ryan was whipped by the leadership after the Romney loss and was told to get line or be ruined in the GOP for any future leadership or Pres run. Ryan has been sitting quiet for two years now and this is his reward. Boehner and the RINOs and the non hard line conservatives will go for Ryan. Deal is done. Webster and chaffetz will be blackballed.

One two three. What no trump zombies bashing beck yet and saying how perfect trump is simply because he calls everyone stupid or pathetic but only he is smart enough to win. Wow. Must be an off day.
Bye Bye Trump, your 15 sec are up. Trolls are keeping your poll numbers up. I knew you were a spoiler from your first speech.
Don't care who is "President"! I just want the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS out! Nobody else has been this brash about it, so you want to be ruled by Mexicans? I don't! SO, enjoy Trump as "President", learn how to deal with it now! Maybe you can sell coins for B!?
Last thing Trump is , is a hypocritical wimp. Beck runs to the Liberal Wet Spot the New York Times and calls Trump a ” Schoolyard bully”……yet when confronted by his target, suddenly its ” beneath” the wimp to talk man to man?? That is hypocritical AND a puss move. You may not like Trump politically but you got to admit the Whimp Factor of this is high. Beck is an uber, purist Conservative so unless you fall in his line you are subjected to non stop ridicule. Then , like a hypo manic, he flips and glowingly supports Fiorino and Rubio!!!! The two Establishment candidates they plan on running as a ticket!! You can’t connect these dots! Trained by Establishment. Written for by the Establishment. Financed by Establishment supporters including Univision and Beck only has glowing reports?? This is PERSONAL for Beck cause Trump didnt return his calls. He moaned about it for weeks. What a little girl. The Man needs help.
Sorry, I can't read your comment because it's covered by a Macy's bra ad.
you spoke too soon

And we don’t sit idly by and wait for Congress. We work in our local communities, our cities, our State. We pass the strictest laws we can get locally and at the State level to stop as many abortions as possible without violating the Federal statutes.
MLK and Ghandi and Jesus before them showed us the way.
The fight is won not with the sword and the spear but with the mind and the heart and the soul.
LOVE thy Enemy! is the commandment we must follow. Show them that love and turn their hearts away from their sin. The Judgement will by GOD’s through His Son, Jesus Christ, at the Second Coming. This college student has a brilliant way to do that. INFORM the apathetic and uninformed and even the staunchest “enemy” from the other side of the argument.
Ours is not to become what we stand against. Sure, we could rise up and blow up all the clinics, storm the doors with guns and shut them down. And that would do what, put frightened women into backdoor scummy clinics to get their abortions but it wouldn’t stop it, it would just turn us into what we KNOW the vocal proponents of abortion are – murderous thugs that prey on the weak, the scared, and the uninformed.
You are right though…it is a Holocaust. 55 Million Americans have been MURDERED since Roe vs. Wade was decided by the SCOTUS. 1/6 of the current US population. Yet I doubt you would stand by and let us say that in the MSM, you and those that think like you would decry us as ZEALOTS and Hate Mongers.
 October 8, 2015 at 4:31pm
Bums answer pretty much sums up the whole thing.
We live in a Nation of laws, one of which is legal abortion by choice of the mother. There are many groups that set up shop next to clinics and do all they can legally to advise and stop the ladies from entering.
See but since we are a Nation of laws, we can not physically intercede without suffering penalty for those laws.
Now I know this seems like a cop out and many Pro Infanticide people will use it to shame and demean and ridicule Pro Life people but it is the Truth.
Now before you talk about Hitler having a “law” ordering the Jews to the death camps, there wasn’t any. First, the Jews were relocated to the ghettos to contain them and their property and wealth stripped away to “pay back” their crimes against the Fatherland. Then they were restricted in movement and worship and nearly every practice of their daily lives, but still no “law” regarding the death camps, just MASSIVE discrimination and persecution which 1000′s did stand up against and found themselves being labeled “Jew lovers” and suffering the same but they continued.
Hitler and the Nazis never told the people of Germany they were killing off the Jews, never made a law for it, they just did it and yes, most of Germany 90% or so, turned a blind eye because of the 10% that stood up, the Nazis carted off or outright killed a large segment to teach everyone to stay passive.
October 8, 2015 at 2:54pm
did Ryan say that before or after the gaff by McCarthy? anybody ask him today? he might feel different… Ryan is one of the smartest guys in the House…BY FAR…I think he got his gut punched after the Romney loss and the leadership told him to knock off the Balanced Budget crap and other reforms, get in line, or they would crucify him…and he caved…
Sucks…but would any of us have done different in the situation…you really can’t tell unless you have been in that type of position before…his whole world was collapsing due to Romney’s advisors being complete A holes and telling him to go soft when in the first debate Romney and Ryan KILLED Obama and Biden….
 October 8, 2015 at 2:48pm
the Reps have 246 seats in the House…McCarthy needs 218 votes to be Speaker…all 189 of the Dem seats will vote PigLosi and the Freedom and Conservative caucuses in the House – the Tea Party wing of the GOP..the TRUE Conservative Constitutionalists…have about 100 votes (i think they said like 97 or something)…if he loses all the Conservatives then he has less votes than Piglosi does and she is made ACTING SPEAKER until a coalition is formed with a candidate that CAN get over the 218…if McCarthy had the vote, there would be a COUP in the House, the Dems would have the Speaker until such time as either the RINOs gave away the baby and the bathwater to get it back or let Piglosi be Speaker again with nothing in return because she already is ACTING Speaker until they can get the votes…
those nearly 100 rank and file and others given a choice DON’T WANT Boehner or McCarthy or anyone else in current leadership because in 2016 they will LOOSE reelection because the GOP didn’t do what they said they would in 2014!!
THAT IS THE ISSUE here.. McCarty say what was coming and he bailed HOPING that either another candidate could step up that is a Boehner clone on the down low or some deal could be cut with the Chaffetz guys to keep the status quo…He ABSOLUTELY does not want Webster or gawd forbidden Gohmert or Gowdy….
Watch..I BET…Paul Ryan will step up at the vote draws near and “take one for the team”
 October 8, 2015 at 1:39pm
OH NO..this means that NONE of the 3 running were able to get a majority of the Republicans in the House…The Conservative and Freedom Caucus both when for Webster…giving him about 100 of the 250 Republicans in the House…you need 218 votes TOTAL in the full House to be Speaker. I suspect that the Conservatives and Freedom said ” NO WAY IN H$!! we are voting for McCarthy.” And the rest of the votes were split between Chafites and McCarthyWhich means the GOP would have an issue in the open House election…
You need 218…
All the Dems will vote for PIGlosi
All the RINOS will vote for McCarthy
Neither would have the 218…which actually would make Piglosi “acting Speaker” until a majority was found and the 218 limit reached since the Dems have 189 votes or whatever…
THAT is what is up…if the vote was held as scheduled McCarthy wouldn’t even get the largest number of votes, Pelosi would….and that would be a COUP for the Dems showing that the GOP is in ruins and Obama truly is the KING he thinks he is…
I would not be surprised if some of the RINOs didn't vote for Pelosi.

most black Americans have some none African DNA…yes…in America it is like 80% of all blacks have a European (non black) ancestor within the first 3-5 generations…lots of rape of slaves and such but also lots of consensual interaction both before and after the Civil War era and Civil Rights era…
nobody is PURE anything anymore…unless you are in some isolated section of some secluded area of the world… jungles, rainforests, extreme mountainous regions….
you should subscribe either as “None of the Above” or “Mixed” or “Other” on forms that ask…unless you are 50% or more of one ethnicity or nationality….
Obama is 50% white but his daddy was 2/3 African and 1/3 Arab…so he should have to put WHITE NON HISPANIC down as his racial or MIXED…not Black or African
 October 8, 2015 at 10:03am
not gonna even try to explain what Rupert meant….who cares…
but Obama is a Marxist Malado boy raised by his white Anarchist mother and Communist grandparents before being adopted by a Southeast Asian Muslim…he then returned to his Communist grandparents, who went to the Little Red Church on the Hill in Washington – a Social Justice communism preaching facility, and lived off the MAN in pure luxury at one of the most expensive and prestigious private schools in the nation, Punahoe, in one of the most expensive cities in the world to live, Honolulu, HI.
there he was mentored by Frank Davis, a pedophile Black Panther who liked to have sex with and take pictures of little underage white girls (Obama’s mommy), and took his place in the Victim Nation of Reparation Asking militant black America, of course all while being a pillar of society at school while smoking weed and shrooming his way though his teen years.
his excellent academic somehow got him into Occidental in CA…where he flunked out after 2 years… then again those same excellent academics got him into Columbia…where nobody remembers him taking a class save one professor….and then into Harvard Law..all of course after some time in Kenya to meet daddy and Pakistan – where he got in using his Muslim adopted father’s name and country of origin…
yeah. yeah…nothing out of the ordinary here
 October 7, 2015 at 3:16pm
umm…GHW Bush and the young GW Bush are both Progressives and think government can solve problems…daddy way more than junior…but junior too…he proved that in 2008 unfortunately…he caved to what all the Chicken Little’s around him were saying which we now know was false…if Bush had let AIG, Behr, Leimann, and others, including GM and Chrysler FAIL…the hit would have been hard and HUGE but we would have been out of it within 2-3 years…not the 7 years of CRAP we have been in and the 2-3 more it will take AFTER we get rid of the A holes in DC…
same thing that FDR did in 1932…continued Hoover’s IDIOTIC reversal of Harding and Coolidge’s policies and made the Great Depression LONGER and more crippling to the US Economy…his own Treasury Sec said so in 1936…rest of the world was out of it in 2-4 years…US only got out because of WW II.
just as they did in 1970…the Earth Day NUT JOBS and their Climate Conference were full of it….but they all saw that governments around the planet would PAY just so they looked like they were doing something…
After all…oil was supposed to be WORLDWIDE by 2000…oh wait, we made CFI engines and then EFI engines and found ways to drill safer, deeper, and extract more efficiently…oh yeah and all that junk oil (tar sand/shale stuff) can now be gotten as well…we have 200 years world wide now, 15 years after they said it would all be gone.
will have more once the US goes nuke power and Natural Gas
 October 7, 2015 at 3:03pm
And I don’t think you can refute the GIANTS of science that are against this idiotic notion of “anthropomorphic climate change”..
how about you watch the Inconsistent Truth…
ALL giants in their fields…ALL from large universities..all with decades of experience.. and all involved some way with the study of the environment…Roy even runs the NASA projects that are responsible for monitoring the Earth’s environment from space (the only true place you can see GLOBAL effects and take into account ASTRONOMICAL data as well)
 October 7, 2015 at 2:55pm
97% ?? Of what scientists…their data is fundamentally flawed Moderate…as are your conclusions and postings..
First to the 97% BS number that is always used by Marxist A holes in this debate… have you read the list? even looked at what they are scientists of? Are they Climatologists/Meteorologists or just random HACKS? Are they even practicing their field? Just because they have a Biology degree from HACK State U of Marxism doesn’t mean they are a practicing scientist.
What about the letter signed by 30,000 Climatologist and Meteorologists world wide that say there is NOT a consensus on the subject and that the data and statistical analysis used is FUNDAMENTALLY FLAWED. Entire time periods were LEFT OUT of the calculations. The data is based off tree rings which tell us NOTHING about the temperature, just about the GROWTH RATE of the trees. Trees grow BETTER when it is wetter and there is more CO2 and when the temperature is warmer. SO ACTUALLY Global Warming would be GOOD for the Earth since it would replenish the flora of the planet QUICKER and it would grow back LARGER and healthier.
So lets post some links of our own shall we Moderate Marxist..
I think the video is from his friends..they got drunk and though this would be funny to go and piss off the Student Union people…
they were all probably laughing knowing that the manager couldn’t touch them or he would be fired…that was until the drunk idiot though it would be funny to test things and touched the manager..then he found out what happens to morons
 October 6, 2015 at 3:16pm
she is a member of the UT staff…doesn’t say if she is a professor or not…but she at least has gone to a college and works at one…you ever stepped on a college campus to do more than troll for a date from a drunk frat boy?
and Cruz just took care of your pathetic attempt at making yourself sound smart by quoting a statistics textbook from any high school Stats course…and you can take those Aussie and Eurotrash numbers and sit and spin on them…them mean NOTHING here since as you say, largest samples are better, NONE of them have EVERY had out population or number of guns or percentage of gun ownership , so their statistics are invalid.
But if you must…I would LOVE to see any of the gun confiscation NAZIs like you and Obama talk about Switzerland…please…do some research into the country that REQUIRES every household to have and be proficient with a sidearm and rifle. It is the DUTY as the Head of Household to use the GOVERNMENT SUPPLIED firearms to TRAIN your family to defend the Fatherland in time of aggression from the outside. EVER adult in Switzerland is a member of the Militia and MUST report when called with their family firearm and be able to use it correctly and accurately.
Even the US doesn’t require this…and please…find some stats on Switzerland gun violence and crime… 0.5 gun homicides per 100,000 people….1/10 of the US 5 gun homicides per 100,000 people…
 October 6, 2015 at 3:01pm
Oh my I sure hope you are being silly…
and “chance of dying” with a “weapon in the home”…well dang…I bet even the good ole hippie Ed Bagley Jr has weapons in his home…every baseball bat is a weapon, every fork and knife, a shoe, house and car keys, any chain or tie…your lamp, table, chairs… Just about ANYTHING can be used by a person as a weapon…
Mankind first used sticks and rocks…then made the rocks and sticks pointed and sharp… then threw the pointed sticks…then put the pointed rocks on the stick and threw them.. and so on and so forth…
Go watch a baby for more than 5 minutes…EVERYTHING they touch is a weapon to smack, throw, or bash with.
and please…post your “statistics”…which if you have any intellectual honesty and any knowledge about, you will have to admit that conclusions based on statistics are about as reliable as passing gas and thinking everyone will believe it was the dog when you say so…
have had guns in my house for years now…taken my 9 and 10 year old out to shoot…my son can group five shots into a quarter at 25 yards…and there is absolutely ZERO chance that anyone in my house will be shot by one of our firearms…now someone else comes into my house when they aren’t invited and there is 100% chance that they will be dying from gunshots..
Don’t stop until the magazine is emptied..then reload and repeat….best chance of survival period…
 October 6, 2015 at 2:50pm
Hey…it might be in Austin..the UT is still in TEXAS and even in the liberal scumbag cities of Austin, San Antonio, and Houston, there are still almost half the people that have brains and are good ole TEXANS through and through…
and even MOST Texas Democrats are Yellow Dogs…they might not vote for a GOP or libertarian guy but they definitely don’t like gun control, abortion, or big government.
 October 6, 2015 at 2:43pm
last time I checked Buffet was a leftie that thinks all rich people should be paying much more in taxes, yet he doesn’t volunteer any extra on Tax Day. He also is for a Single Payer Healthcare system, free high speed internet, and a host of other Marxist policies. He was Obama’s chief consultant on the Stimulus failure and the Bank/Auto bailouts.
Funny that to avoid all that DEATH Tax the Dems want, Buffet has already put all his money in trust and when he dies, his family gets nothing but the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gets about 15 Billion to help spread Common Core to the world.
