Butterfield Urges Congressional Colleagues to Support the President’s Student Loan Relief Plan

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman G. K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) today urged his congressional colleagues to support President Barack Obama’s efforts to help further relieve student loan costs for millions of college graduates nationwide.  Butterfield said that the president’s proposal, which seeks to cap student loan payments at 10 percent of discretionary income, forgive outstanding debt after 20 years of payment and offer student borrower new opportunities to consolidate their student loans, would help North Carolinians who are experiencing record increases in the cost of higher education.

“In North Carolina the cost of tuition at schools in the state university system has jumped an average of 8.2 percent,” said Butterfield.  “Job creation and salaries are not keeping pace with growing tuition costs, which could deter people from seeking post-secondary education and exacerbate the unemployment rate.  Although Congress has passed legislation to provide relief to student loan holders, Congress should do more to ensure Americans continue to pursue careers that will make them competitive in the global workforce. ”

Earlier this year, Butterfield, a consistent advocate of job creation and education, met with staff and administrators from Edgecombe, Halifax and Vance-Greenville community colleges, as well as regional employment partners to discuss the challenges in educating the region’s workforce.  In April, Butterfield voted against a Republican budget resolution, which cut college aid for nearly 10 million students and slashed the maximum Pell Grant award by more than 45 percent.

New guidelines released for the treatment of ADHD in children – Source: StarNewsOnline

Jack Erickson was a 7-year-old first grader in a super-small Montessori-style class when he was first diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.

Jack’s teacher called his parents repeatedly to discuss his disruptive behaviors. The boy, she said, couldn’t sit still. He was out of his seat constantly, sharpening his pencil, wanting a drink of water. Several times per day, she’d have to take him outside the classroom to calm him down. (Read more)

Ignant Column – Blacks Democrats Supporting Cain But Talking About The Willie Lynch Story

It is funny as hell to me to see certain folks promote Cain and talking about “us” as descendants of slaves ought to join them in supporting Cain. They say that some folks are mad because Cain is a dark-skinned Negro and “our” President Barack Obama is light-skinned. They say this is the only reason why we support “our” President because he is light-skinned.

Willie Lynch is operating in many who don’t even realize it but when they open their mouths and/or write things they shows it.
Anyone who feels that black Democrats will vote for "our" current President over Cain just because of their skin color is just ignant as hell. They will simply vote for the Democrat just because they are registered as a Democrat.

I say these Cain supporters are IGNANT as hell and do not speak for me. I can think for myself.

Folks you better be “cautious” of folks who try to make you vote for a certain candidate just because they support that person.

I will continue to share information with you and you can decide for yourself who you want to support.

Cain’s Former Secretary: This Is Not the Herman Cain I Know

Presidential candidate Herman Cain’s campaign has been rocked by a Politico report that revealed Cain was accused of sexual harassment by two female employees during his stint at the National Restaurant Association. Cain told Fox News this morning that he has “never sexually harassed anyone” but confirmed that he was accused of doing so in the past, claiming such accusations were "false." Past employees of Cain, including his long-time female executive assistant, have told THE WEEKLY STANDARD that the charges are unbelievable. (Read more)

Ignant Column – Rocky Mount NC: Nehemiah Smith Jr. Has Finally Had The Audacity To Post Some Ignance On My Blog

Nehemiah Smith Jr. I am glad that you had the audacity to post your ignance on my blog as it relates to: Presidential Candiate, “Why Big Daddy Cane?” Sexual Harrassment Not One Woman But 2!! Damnit Now!!

I am sad to know that some black folk are happy to hear and spread dirt [just allegations] on another successful black man [Herman Cain]. Now I know that some black folk are just as ugly and vile on the inside as the swift boaters! Nehemiah Smith

Response: Successful? Really? Allegations? Really? Well he has the opportunity to prove that they are just that accusations.

You damn right you came back to Rocky Mount and has shown just how ignant a black man could be by attacking the 4 – 3 black majority Rocky Mount City Council especially Rev. Andre Knight councilman member and President of the Rocky Mount NAACP. You come back here and made all kinds of accusations that were far from the truth spending time on a local Gospel Station Talk Show and then you begin to publish a sorry a… newspaper. It appears you connected with the local white folks who have a problem with the black majority city council. It appears you are connected to the local Tea Party as well. This has lead folks to contact me asking me who were financing your sorry a… newspaper. I refused to do a story about you because I was not going to promote you and your sorry a… newspaper. I am glad to hear that you recently apologized to Rev. Andre Knight.

I have been waiting on your ignant a… to post something on my blog. I report the news I don’t make it. I don’t give a damn who the news is about if I want to post about it I will. I post about black, white and other folks on my blog. Been waiting to post about you so thank you for inviting yourself.

What in the hell have you been doing with your sorry a… newspaper? The way you have attacked the Rocky Mount City Council was just downright out of ignorance. You come back here with all of your supposedly smarts bragging about where you have gone to college (Grambling) but what in the hell are you doing in Rocky Mount? Go get a damn real job and then talk to me.

Been waiting on you so let’s get it on.

Oh by the way the last time I spoke with you when I called in to the radio station you wanted to meet with me about the issues I was discussing but I hope your ignant a… got the message because I never got back with you, didn’t intend to, but when you publicly apologize to the Rocky Mount City Council maybe I will consider. But then again, I don’t deal with folks who don’t do their homework and don’t have a real job but bragging about their college education.

Presidential Candiate, “Why Big Daddy Cain?” Sexual Harrassment Not One Woman But 2!! Damnit Now!!

So why would Herman Cain do this to the women in the latter? Not the sexually harassment cases I mean but to run for President and now these women’s names will come up.

I knew it was something about this dude he just didn’t look right. He looks like an old nerd.

Talking about smart, this damn NEGRO was too damn smart for his own good.

Damn the more I read the article the more pissed I got.

This is what makes politics, church and other have a bad name because folks do their mess and then think it is okay to be in the spotlight.

This is why I am so glad I have a mind of my own and can speak for myself. To think this NEGRO said black folks were brainwashed to vote for Democrats hits home.

Hit home oh didn’t mean to go there because it seems that "Big Daddy Cain" were hitting on the women. Oh nope not LMBAO on this one because I don’t find this one to be funny at all. Just damn right discussing and this fool going to run for President.

One thing I can say is one of my longtime women friends who is older than I always tell people one thing about it they can’t say I am out here doing ignant mess since I am always talking politics. I don’t hold an office but I recognize and understand that white and black (blacks first) would love to see me get caught up in sex, money, drugs and the etc. I have always stated that when I leave home a red flag goes up and that I will not disgrace my family nor other black men. However I know I am not my mind keeper so if I was to fail along the way I would be the first to tell my story and move on.

Again I ask the question, why "Big Daddy Cain?"
