Makes one wonder about the intelligance of the American voter, and what has now become acceptable behavior. Then again, looking at our Congressman, I start to understand. The I've got mine, and I'll help you get yours means far more than what is best for the Country as a whole to these voters.
Two more with no fear of our judicial system. If it were a deterent, then these things wouldn't happen for such small a return.
They sure will, it is both a Fed and State law. So no matter which side gets you, you are had. Now if you use these weekly dispensers, you better have the individual bottles properly marked and dated in your immediate possession. This applies mostly to pain relievers and such. I forget the exact classification. It applies to other drugs as a means of identification.
As long as a Doctor agrees, then it's legal. Provided it doesn't impair them in any way.
Now is the time to show this won't be tolerated in a Public Servent. It sets an overall bad example. Remember when Female Teachers used to be dismissed for smoking, or other behavior deemed inappropriate? Teachers at one point were held to a higher standard due to their influence over their students. Time the system went back to holding all Teachers accountable. In actions, mannerisms and personal conduct.
Another Teacher in the wrong. An outstanding reason for universal, monthly drug testing of all those receiving public funds or benefits. Whether they be earned, or granted. Want to stop drugs? Make it where there are no customers for the product by strict enforcement and monitoring of the most vulnerable population. Which happens to be our largest population, gevernmental dependant individuals. The problem is random testing isn't getting the violators. So make it universal. Whether it be a hair sample every three months or a monthly saliva or urine test. Then make laws to hold these folks accountable to the courts if they can offer no legal explaination as to the substances presence in their system. By the way, word the law so they not only lose their job, but any accrued benefits, including retirement.
Glad you quoted the Brady group as factual and the NRA as fanatical. I don't hold with either statement. Both groups will use statistics of questionable nature for their own purposes. Now the NRA runs Eddie Eagle and Hunter Safety programs, as well as competative shooting in a highly supervised enviornment. Just what does the Brady group do along the education lines? Besides spreading misinformation that is? As to children and guns. I feel we have shifted to a society that forces our children to grow up too fast. We don't allow them to play out their youth. Instead we make little adults out of them all too soon. Adults in thought only, not responsibility or action. You mention child safety seats, yet we still continually read about all sorts of deaths and accidents where no such seat was employed, even though it was required by law. Laws don't work unless the people are willing to be governed by them. What has apparently left the world is personal human responsibility. I spent all of my Summers working on my Uncle Karl's Dairy Farm. There were loaded guns, accessiable all the time. We were taught from a very young age what they were capable of, and how to safely use them. One of my jobs when I was nine was to shoot rats and groundhogs with a Remington Model 6 and 22 shorts. My Brother and Cousins before me had done the same. We were prperly shown what was expected, and we followed the rules. That is both Parental responsibility and personal responsibility. Something sadly lacking in this day and age.
Why make it public knowledge that the phone can be tracked? If they don't know, they get caught. If they do know they now shut it down and sit on it for a few months. Had they known, and shut it down, the arrest wouldn't have occurred and the gun would still be on the street.
I didn't see where I mentioned any names, only quoting Industry practice. You have some personal involvement in this? Possibly a relative or an individual working within the system that fears the spotlight? All individuals should be held accountable for their performance. As to apologizing, why don't you go back in this Blog and read where others have complained very loudly about Monroe's failure to enforce attendance, class skipping, and allowing students to wonder in whenever they want. I didn't write those, only read and remember them.
The real sin is those that fought and died for America are so soon forgotten. Not just World War Veterans, but Veterans of all the conflicts this Country has asked them to serve in. Those that didn't serve, would just as soon forget, least they be looked upon as not having done their fair share. Unfortunately, many of them, commencing with Vietnam, became Teachers. At one point to avoid the draft it was common to teach. I remember many of my fellows that said they were going to teach until the war was over, then go into Industry. As I look around, many have retired with thirty plus years as Teachers. The Unions made these jobs safe havens with outstanding pay and retirement in the North. So the folks educating our students didn't have much respect for a Veteran, because they themselves avoided service.
