Screw the 'safety net'....

Just a random thought, the 'safety net' that we talk about needing in our society is a horrible image. It plays into wing-nut talking points about government making it a trap.

We need a floor.

A basic simple level floor that we won't allow people to fall below.

Small personal good news....

Received SSDI approval, did not even realize what a weight that was until after it was lifted.


Now on to next project-requesting information, knowledge, and suggestions for 55 year old returning college student. The way I messed up in college, if you can imagination a way to do it wrong I probably did it, is the largest repairable(?) mistake in my life.

The loose plan is to start with 1 or2 online courses. Financing, studying, and working around disable are all areas I could use as much wisdom as possible. Additional if there's anything I should beware of, but might not know, please be free to point it out.

Thank you for your time reading this.

I think forcing people to be involved in the problem....

would make solutions possible. Right now too many live separated from the bloodshed.


You don't want to think of it in those terms, that you right. The fact that service is 'voluntary' means most never service, is that a good thing?

Yes, I agree she would make a great candidate....

republican candidate.

Do you set your own standards as high....

as the ones for your waiters? Please remember that they help other people besides you and what you consider obvious is not so to others.

Just seems kind of minor to be upset about. The difference between good and great service.

The shutdown will not end until Republicans do what they don't want to....

and that's admitting to a few facts.

Yes all those lovely wars you like cost a lot of money, and lives.

No 30+ years of tax cuts for the richest among us is not sound government policy.

Yes, some one working at a minimum wage job does have a job and is working. They should be able to provide for themselves at the very least.

No, sensible laws and regulations do not take away your 'freedum'. They try to ensure that your dum doesn't take from some one else.

Yes, people have a right to health care. And education. And housing. And let's throw in CLEAN air and water. Basically they have the right to live. Isn't that something you support?

No, there is nothing wrong with getting some help when you need it. Helping our neighbors makes the towns, villages, or cities where we live strong, safer, better.


I guess the means we'll have to look for another way out of this.

Huh? Its simple.....

Look at the rise in food prices, check out the falling wages. When people can't afford to eat, they will be out in the street. (And we are going to need a pitchfork smiley.)

Huh?

I was going to try to answer you, but the more I think about it the less sense it makes. You would rather make me a convenient target, so go for it. Evil, evil man here.

Look, I would honestly love to see Hillary run in '16.....

as the republican candidate.



It would so nice to have the choice between two sane candidates.

Just to make myself clear......

the ability to raise insane amounts of campaign funds is not among the requirements to run for office IMHO.


In fact I will tend to view those candidates with some suspicion.
