Re: Down goes the Flag

Like the towers coming down on 9/11/01 we should not forget this flag and all the horror it has accompanied in its history. Instead, we should be made acutely aware of it in museums and in our history books so that even the youngest student will [more]

Re: curious about your opinion

Yikes.

Technically, it's a no-no to interact with a child without permission of the legal custodian unless there's an open CPS case. That open case is what gives SWs the right to talk to that kid without a parent. So just on that, there's a [more]

Re: Defiance 062615

At one point Tim Curran said the contacts were $7000 (not sure if that was all, or his, or what, and he may be just kidding). They are doing a lot more via CGI this year and it sounds like the actors are really happy about that.

As an aside, [more]

Re: Sons Of Anarchy's Torture Porn

You'd think at least the gunfire would annoy the neighbors or the child support checks stopping would get some attention.

There's talk of Jimmy Smits getting nominated for an Emmy for The Bounce of Despair after the Phone Call of Revelation. [more]

Mark me..... the answer is "enough."
Until everyone has enough this kind of bigoted hate will continue apace.

That's probably been the safest bet, historically. At least for the public face of the church.

Re: An Open Letter

But doesn't every dad feel that way?

30+ years in social work tell me "not so much."

An Open Letter

To my son:

Your wife thanked you for babysitting y'all's daughter while she had a night out with the girls. That was sweet, but you saying "It's not baby-sitting if I'm taking care of my own kid. That's just...what parents do" was [more]

Re: Surprising Lessons Millennials Took From 9/1

When people receive cash assistance is it on a different card or does the computer program separate out the two kinds of funds?

It's all on one card (TANF, CS) with the SNAP benefits. Multiple accounts on one card, like your ATM [more]

Re: to do or not to do........

Practically speaking, she won't get anywhere near $10k if she sells it and it's a constant reminder of bad memories, I would think. Legally, it apparently differs by state as to whether she *can* keep it.

Re: Surprising Lessons Millennials Took From 9/1

Wow, I should know this (I mean, I really, really should) but what I can gather, the system would exclude it and the receipt would show "balance owed." Which may be what some people see when they think they're seeing EBT cards used for [more]

Re: Surprising Lessons Millennials Took From 9/1

I'm pretty sure it's all done at the programming level with the bar codes. The USDA did a study a few years ago and the result was it would be unmanageable to restrict junk food, etc. and per their study (not anecdotal accounts) the choices weren't [more]
