A $200 back-to-school giveaway for needy kids sparked a mad rush for money on the streets of New York on Tuesday.

"It's free money!" said Alecia Rumph, 26, who waited in a Morris Park, Bronx, line 300 people deep for the cash to buy uniforms and book bags for her two kids.

"Thank God for Obama. He's looking out for us."

  • Conservatives are all about giving everyone an equal start to life, Everyone has the same opportunities and if they work hard enough they can make themselves successful.

    Liberals are all about giving everybody the same end in life. They want everyone to be equal in adult hood. Just dish out money to everyone so no one has to be poor.
