This is what the world is coming to and WE let it happen!
WE allow feed companies to put hormones in animal feed so that the cows, chickens, pigs fatten up faster and the farmer can take them to market faster.
Then we can't understand why girls in the 5th and 6th grades are having their menstrual cycle and have bodies that used to be 20 year olds. And 14 YO boys having sex with their teachers! and pedophiles are all over young girls!
WE allow meat producers to irradiate our food to kill harmful bacteria. Meat that would never been allowed 10 years ago to be processed! Yet people continue to get sick more and more from tainted meat!
Syrian Government came to the US State Dept and asked for $1 Billion in guns to fight the rebels. (The US is the #1 exporter of military weapons in the World! And we wonder why everyone hates us?) The US State Dept informed them that it was against the law for the US Government to authorize giving weapons to a foreign power. The the US Dept of Foreign Aid (A different Dept of the Federal Government) informed Syria that due to their "Internal Conflict" (You notice that they didn't use Civil War.) That Syria qualified for $10 Billion in Foreign Aid! The Syrian Government then went back to the State Dept and said can they use $1 Billion of that to buy weapons. Our State Dept said, OF COURSE. We can authorize the sale of $1 Billion worth of weapons immediately! (More if they want them!)
Parents use Grand Theft Auto and every other violent video game as baby sitters for Children!
I have been an advocate for 30 years that EVERYONE serves their country. Either before College or after college. If you graduate from High School EVERYONE either has to serve in the Military or some other Dept of the Federal Government. (US Forestry Service, BLM, BIA, FBI, CIA ect.) For no LESS than 2 years. (If you go to college, you can defer that until you graduate.) IF you drop out of High School, then you must serve until your 20th Birthday!
There's a reason that everyone in Israel and Switzerland has/had a gun. They are required to serve in their Military! Even Dr Ruth (The sex Doctor!) carried a gun and served in the military.
I firmly believe that if this was law, it would weed a lot of these sickos out!
WE have allowed the Federal Government to kick religion out of schools! I can remember reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every morning in grade school. (At least Kindergarten and 1st grade.)
WE have allowed Dept Stores to replace Merry Christmas with Happy Holidays!
When is the last time we have taken our children or grandchildren to church?
Then WE wonder why s*** like this happens!
Yes, WE are responsible! If you aren't part of the solution, then you are part of the problem!
Dont think youre prying at all Inimicus, your question is very relevant & influential on the situation...
I picked something up from my wife's aunt a few years back. When people are at your house and one of their kids does something, the 1st time its on them to handle it, after that its on you as its your house. Now I get this is the 1st tiem this happened, but it is my son. I do not even want to consider what could have been, Im just glad nothing did happen to my boy...
This is a huge mistake on her part, Im do not agree with a light punishment. I have doubts my mother-in-law would have punished her accordingly. So I am.. But I want to be smart and teach her a lesson....
Actually, I agree with this to a point. (First punishment is on the parent.) But "your house, your rules" also has to come into play.
When my 1st neice was young, she was around 6-7 yo. My sister and BIL were down for Thanksgiving, I was up from NC. My neice wanted to play piano. So my Mom and neice sat down at the piano and my Mom started to play. I was sitting next to the piano, My sister was in another chair in the living room. Everyone else were out in the den.
My Mom started to play, however my neice just wanted to bang on the keys. My Mom very politely told her that it wasn't good to bang on the keys, and suggested they play a song together. My neice stopped and my Mom started to play chopstix. My neice started banging on the keys again with her fists. My Mom kept playing and my neice hauled off and hit her on the arm.
I waited about 10 second for my sister to step in, finally, I told my neice. "You do that again, and I'll put you over my knee. My neice defiantly told me that I couldn't, I wasn't her parent. I gave her my serious look and told her. "Parent or not, you just hit my Mother. And no one hits my Mother!" My niece said she was sorry to me. I told her she needed to apologize to her Grandmother. To which she did. Case closed.
My sister never said a word to her daughter or to me. I kind of expected my Sister to say something to me about not having any chldren and threatening to discipline hers. But I was glad she didn't. (I might have put her over my knee.)
It may have not been my place to step in. My Mom basically raised me by herself. I didn't care who you were, you showed her respect.
Each of the 3 Credit reporting power to be have a place where you can challenge something on your credit report. State your case and I'll be you will have it over turned. I had a similar problem it was taken off my credit report.
I challenged things even if they were right. Some came off my report and my credit score rose.
in Canada you know, we have the one and two dollar coins...know as the loonie and the twoonie. This act of throwing your change in the jar really adds up quick with those in there! My wife and I spent a week all inclusive in Mexico just on a few months of her tips going in the jar when she was still working as a waitress.
One Summmr after my Sister got divorced, she was out of money. (In Indiana, Teachers can have their check spread over 9 months or 12. Because she was married at the time, she had chosen 9 months)
So she got a job as a waitress as an upscale place near a golf course.
She nocticed 2 things. Tips got better as soon as she took off her wedding ring and as her skirts got shorter, her tips got bigger! She made it thru the entire Summer on her tips. In fact, she took a pay cut going back to teaching!
Of course, it didn't hurt that my sister has rather large, assests!
