There’s something happening here…
“♪♪ What it is ain’t exactly clear…there’s a man over there, telling me I got to be ware…♪♪” Just a couple or few matters going through my mind — that Lord forbid, that are definitely messing with some people’s minds. ♪” Well…it’s time we STOP hey, what’s that sound every body look what’s going round'”♪ Let me know what you think:
As anyone who has grown up around snow knows, part of the fun of sledding is the risk of soaring off a jump or careening around a tree. But faced with the potential bill from sledding injuries, some cities have opted to close hills rather than risk large liability claims.
No one tracks how many cities have banned or limited sledding, but the list grows every year. One of the latest is in Dubuque, Iowa, where the City Council is moving ahead with a plan to ban sledding in all but two of its 50 parks.
In meetings leading up to the ban, Dubuque council members lamented the move but said it was the only responsible choice given liability concerns and demands from the city’s insurance carrier. They pointed to judgments in sledding lawsuits in the past decade, such as a $2 million judgment against Omaha, Nebraska, after a 5-year-old girl was paralyzed when she hit a tree and a $2.75 million payment when a man in Sioux City, Iowa, slid into a sign and injured his spinal cord. Sounds like some new judges are in order or maybe have kids aware — enough to sign a self-responsibility statement.
“We have all kinds of parks that have hills on them,” said Marie Ware, Dubuque’s leisure services manager. “We can’t manage the risk at all of those places.”
A study by Columbus, Ohio-based Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital found that between 1997 and 2007, more than 20,000 children each year were treated at emergency rooms for sledding-related injuries.
Okay let’s see…did this research tell us anything? Maybe how many kids are being treated in emergency rooms per year; however there is nothing with regards to the injuries. Has anyone looked at the healthcare data of late? There is a lot more people refusing medical treatment because of the dreadful legislation and costs associated with doctor’s visits. So on the one hand we have fewer people receiving care which means doctor’s have less work and on the other hand we still have an unconstitutional national piece of rubbish legislation.
Passage of a New York DREAM Act would make tuition assistance available to undocumented students statewide
There is an injustice that needs to be corrected in our state’s Tuition Assistance Program. Currently, the program does not provide assistance to all the young men and women who need it, because it does not accept applications from undocumented students who were brought into this country at a young age.
New York State’s proposed DREAM Act would right this wrong and make the Tuition Assistance Program available to undocumented students across the state. As the new legislative session starts tomorrow, the governor and the state Legislature should swiftly enact this legislation.
As a nation of immigrants, we must not punish undocumented students for decisions beyond their control. Every student deserves a chance to make their dreams of higher education come true and a chance to contribute to their community.
And do you know what..? ♪♪” You say you want a revolution, Well…you know, We all want to change the World.”♪♪ First of all what is with this “land of immigrants” nonsense? Think about it isn’t every nation a land of immigrants? No one is punishing undocumented students for decisions beyond their control. Sure they may have come to this country with their parents, aunties, uncles, Coyotes, that’s just it — they are here illegally why not change that first?
Sure you bet everyone is entitled a chance to have dreams of higher education to what? Contribute to their community? Come on already! Have you seen their communities? First and foremost the modus operandi is to change the community to what? It would be glorious for the repair hardware shop owner selling his entire stock of spray paint before the entire community was burned down without prejudice including his hardware store.
♪♪”But when you talk about destruction…Don’t you know that you can count me out…”♪♪
A new Siena College poll is a nightmare for DREAM Act supporters. The Monday poll shows that 56% of state voters oppose offering state taxpayer-funded tuition assistance programs to the college kids of illegal immigrants. The reality is that only 39 percent are in favor — statewide. This in its originality was written by two politicians.
