Providing them any form of recognition, just is encouragement. I like it because the style prevents the easy concealment of a weapon.

Not if she is dead. The Judge by Taurus is the best answer for one of these PETs. Kept in an apron pocket it is very formidiable against all threats. Remember the elderly Lady when the yellow python was on the loose? She made no bones about what would happen if it showed up around her Grandchildren or small dogs. City ordenance or not.

Well, some folks might just like to know others care about them. If you want to send something worthwhile, send money to the local Salvation Army and allow them to use it as they see fit. They maybe difficult to reach currently, but I am certain the National will direct the funds accordingly. At least none of the contributions will go so some CEO's inflated salary and benefits. The Salvation Army provides the best actual aid with the funds provided. They can purchase what is needed at a discount in most cases, and don't have to worry about shipping and storage of items.

Look, it is South-west Georgia. The hats indoors is something I don't like, but have learned to tolerate. Plus there isn't much wrong with a good pickup. We cannot live in our perspective of the world, we simply have to accept the perspective of others. Maybe they are Jewish and don't have a Yamika (Boy did I probably spell that wrong) I believe if they knew we were looking upon them as following Jewish custom, they might stop wearing the hats indoors. It is done as an attention getter, or attention diverter. Kind of depends about how you feel about your hair, or in some cases lack thereof. I also hear the hats when treated correctly will stop Lice, an all to previlant problem in South-west Georgia.

For what it is worth, I bought $20 worth of quick picks in both Lotterys this weekend. A young Lady in front of me got $50 worth of the Power Ball tickets. When I checked out with my Groceries, I paid with my Debit Card. She paid with a State EBT Card. Am I the only one noticing this type of thing, and believing it to be wrong? Then I hear the commercial that many Children go to bed hungry in America and have really got to wonder.

Why shouldn't everyone utilizing services pay for them? All a part of doing business. Around here, most Churches are just that, a business for the profit of the Preacher and their friends. Not very many actually utilize their funds for the Lord's work, they use them to build Temples of Worship. Complete with statues and such.

So, how many Board Meetings have you attended? What have you done to get a grass roots movement going that will take the schools back from the pencil pushers? What have you done to remove both the problem Teachers, and Students? Just curious.

Wish that were the case, more would work. However, it seems the Children are the ones going hungry because the so called parents can't manage the money they are given. That or they don't give a dam.

In Industry, it would be a 15% reduction in force with a permanent loss of jobs. This way it is spread out so everyone shares a little of the pain. Furlough or job loss. Your opinion would depend on just where you fell in the equation. I think we all at least suspect the Federal Civilian Job Force may be inflated with some that are just check grabbers. Shame is they are in high enough slots that if there were what is called a fair reduction, they wouldn't be touched. Should all be based on performance and value added to the job, but it would never be.

The key to higher education is jobs and earnings. There have to be jobs out there for the graduates, jobs that enable them to pay back the loans it took to get the education. One of the problems with higher education is that it has become a business. There are many Colleges, Universities and schools that are into simply providing a comfortable income for those on the teaching side. If a college doesn't graduate at least 85% of it's Freshmen class, then it isn't doing it's part for the students. They are in the education business, simply in the turning over of numbers to profit those employed within the system. Some of the drop out rates are astounding. You have got to wonder where the recruiters find folks desperate enough to shell out the money for almost assured failure. Look around, are our Colleges there for the students, or the educators comfortable lifestyle?
