Here's my personal opinion on the matter of health care: parent's have done a poor job of explaining the importance of health care to their children, and once the kiddies get out on their own they figure they don't "need" it.
how about we start telling them that it's not an option, but a matter of responsibility? you need car insurance to lease a car, you need home owners insurance if you have a mortgage (for the most part), and if you dont want to owe a doctor $250,000 (in case of something catastrofic), then you get health insurance - that easy; if you don't want to get heath insurance, and god forbid something horrible happens to you, then the doctors will still help you (because we live in the greatest country on the planet), but dont expect to not be held liable for it down the road.
You forgot how we want to push grandma over the cliff, and for our child to starve and breath dirty air, while comsuming dirty water :)
If I'm not mistaken, food stamps are not a right but a privilege - correct? Hence, privileges can come with stipulations, such as passing a drug test.
Compare, if you will, unemployment benefits - they are a type of assistance provided to those who meet the stipulations put on them, such as showing proof that you are looking for work; right?
The government isn't forcing anyone to give up their 4th amendment right - they only want you to meet a stipulation, in order to receive tax payer funded money.
Why is this so hard for lefties to understand?
i have to wonder if the UNC police will be held liable if this individual commits another crime or injures someone else, since he escaped from their custody and supervision?
i hate to say it, but the community from which he dweels can't be wiped of liability either. i know their is a "don't snitch" mentallity their, but until the local citizens decided enough is enough - nothing will change. the good people who are afraid in that neighborhood, need to help the police so they can clean the area up.
just my humble opinion...
4:45am and we're off :)
im taking a family member on his first turkey hunt this morning - opening day of the youth season. as we prepare to leave, i am overwhelmed with pride and happiness of passing on one of the greatest traditions in our family.
and so begins a new chapter!!!
(wish us luck if you choose, as anyone who's ever been turkey hunting knows, he's going to need it)
Besides religion, why shouldn't a private land owner be able to hunt on Sunday?
Just another example of laws written in the name of a certain religion; but what if you don't practice that religion? Too bad...
I bought my property, and there is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON why I can't hunt on it come Sunday if I want to - except for a law that should be illegal itself.
Why don't you try to outlaw golf on Sundays and see how that works out?
Thank you Toda. I actually have Cherokee blood in my family and have always "felt" nature. Respecting the game I hunt, and being thankful for the success, is something I have instilled into my young son as he begins hunting himself.
Happy Easter Toda to you and your family!
toda -> I do grow my own (venison), right on my own property - where it is free range, and steroid free :) then, once i harvest one of these all naturals, and pay my respects to it, Jackie gladly debones, trims, preps, and vacuum packs my meat; and, I HAPPILY pay him to do so!!!
I love the fact that "Parker Brothers", in Vass, will process locally killed venison - in addition to providing great traditional butchery needs. I would love to see this new location offer the same service, but for some reason I get a feeling that would never happen in Pinehurst. :(
