It has been reported on a number of blogs, like the Deacon's Bench, of the protest against Speaker John Boehner. You see, he will be speaking at the Catholic University of American graduation and will receive an honorary law doctorate.
It seems that the graduating social workers (among a number of professors), like Katy Jamison, protested this speech. Now, to her credit, did not jump up and down, bum rush the podium, or called in a bomb threat. She, like others, wore a sign protesting the visit and did not stand and clap.
What was she and others protesting? Well, all of the horrible cuts he will make to programs which help the poor and "repressed".
I guess Mrs./Miss (?) Jamison must be taking about the housing programs to help the poor, such as the ones run by HUD.
In particular, she must be talking about the one in Prince George’s County, the nonprofit Kairos Development Corp. (PG County), who received $750,000 in 2005 to build dozens of homes and has still not built one house.
Or if not that one, how about the one in Newark, NJ which the city paid a contractor $400,000 to build duplex houses but after a decade of delay, the developer folded and never finished the project.
Could it be she is really worried that she will not be able to get a job paid for out of a government grant?
Meethinks, she protests too much.
