    At the April 28 event, Jackson told about a minority contractor who finally had landed an advertising contract with HUD after trying for 10 years, according to an article in the Dallas Business Journal.

    Jackson said that when the man approached him to thank him for the contract, the contractor said he didn't like Bush.

    "He didn't get the contract," Jackson told the group, according to the newspaper. "Why should I reward someone who doesn't like the president, so they can use funds to try to campaign against the president? Logic says they don't get the contract. That's the way I believe."

    Dogs and Democrats are not allowed to apply for HUD loan.

    Funny I would think the majority of the people who apply for HUD loans would be democrats! If they voted! People like my mom (who loves handouts)!

    Yup my mom. The woman who has lived off of welfare for 22 years and now collects SSI and is looking to buy a house for the first time at 42 years old and is applying for a HUD loan and she is pissed off because she only qualifies for $60,000!

    I don't know your mom's history beyond what you've posted, but you need to check yourself for complaining about the woman who brung you into this world and re-think why she's on this path. Where's the old man?
