Who Pays for Signature on Marriage Certificate ?

Technorati Profile

A Reply to Keith Miller's Letter to The Union newspaper:

Miller is ancient an honorable name, designating those who grind the good grain from the fields. What if we decided that the moment you dropped that occupation, you could no longer use that last name? That makes as much sense as claiming gays are unable to use the word marriage, and receive a state printed copy of a marriage licence.

My taxes and gays taxes go to pay for the salary of the civil servant who signs those documents. To have a state only agree to one religion's version of the definition of marriage, and to only pay that civil servant to sign for that religion, is a violation of the separation of church and state.

Pass it on. An attorney can make a name for him/her/itself with this. Another Keachie Koncept original.

Dog Eat Dog Worlds

"Keachie~The "system" or human nature?

There can be rich people without poor people, unless you depend on taxes for your wealth! If you live off of recycled tax in the form of a paycheck, then you do need the poor to keep you employed.

I don't believe in taking from someone to "help" someone else. That is a spirit breaker. People need to have character within themselves to give and help without force for it to be meaningful both to the giver and receiver. "

In a dog eat dog world, only the stupid dogs would stop to help others, as every dog would supposedly need all their resources to survive against stronger dogs who are out to control it all.

Reading, is it "the system" or just "human nature" that causes some individuals to be born in a ghetto and unwanted, vs being born to a family on Banner Mountain?

Yes, some do manage to claw their way up to a PhD, but out of how many originally born there, vs. how many of those born in Banner Mt. type homes? We both already know the answer, you just want an excuse to turn your back on the problem. The problem is, what do we need to do to achieve a society in which there is a respectable and self sustaining job (shelter and medical) for anyone willing to work a 40 hour week?

One Suggestion:

For the slugs, thugs, and dregs, fly them, separated by sexual preferences, to separate valleys in Nevada, such that it is a 10 - 20 day walk out, with basic food an shelter every 8 miles

Access to the food and shelter is via airlock style entryways, activated via thumbprint or retinal scan. As soon as the next bunch is flown in, the quality of food and shelter available to an unwilling to walk person goes down a notch. Put in several layers, and in the end, it is bread and water and a vermin free concrete slab with a blanket.

In time, you will identify all your true mental cases.

The workers coming out of the ends of the valleys will be 10 - 20 days drug free and in fairly good physical shape. There they receive free transportation to a job of their choice for which they are qualified, and shelter housing until their first paycheck.

Great background for a sci fi novel, any takers?

Limbaugh = Goebbels, Done Fatter

Technorati Profile

Let's see.

I choose for my dad a man in prison, I choose for my mom a lady strung out on drugs, I choose for my group home leader some loser who couldn't make a lot of money in the private sector, I choose for my school a place surrounded by shootouts and drugs and sex on the corners, populated by 20% kids desperately trying to leave, like me, and 20% by kids who view at as their prime mission in life, to wreck any semblance of a learning situation. I choose ZERO in inheritance. Yup, those are all my choices, and I am responsible for every one, so says Reading.

Her kids, of course, "choose" somewhat differently.

Reading, a commenter in The Union Newspaper, wrote the following, which inspired my post above:

"reading wrote:
Who really in America is "low socio-economic"?

IF there really are "low socio-economic" in America MOST cases are a result of bad choices/lack of motivation. (I am NOT talking about people with any physical conditions [MS is an example] that limit their choices)"

All I Want for Christmas.....

I am rather hoping that Obama will see fit to set up tele-learning for prisons that links an instructor and a student through a phone line and a shared screen, such that the instructor can work one on one with a student across the country, thus minimizing risk to the instructor, and increasing one on one interaction. The instructor could opt in for the prisoner seeing him or her, depending on rapport established. If we are going to keep recidivism down, we need to get the educational level of "graduates" up.

Both of our phones were reset to TWO (2) hours back instead of one hour back. If you depend on your phone for time or alarms, you should double check it before going to sleep.
