Probably had something to do with a requirement that in return for a FREE PLACE TO LIVE, they had to actually look for work, or attend job training.
Right. And that's a problem. Try providing something for less fortunate people without strings. You know, providing for the sake of providing, because it's the RightThing(tm) to do, rather than as an effort to force your will on powerless people. What no one wants is the leash around their neck.
Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.
While the Constitution did not explicitly "allow" slavery, it did implicitly recognize it's existence (the 3/5ths clause) and it could be argued thereby tacitly allowed it. With the 13th Amendment slavery was abolished.
except in the RARE excpetion where a minor is tried as an adult for something serious like murder
I don't know how rare it may be, but I don't care. there is something fundamentally flawed with people who say out of one side of their face that a 15 year old is too unsophisticated to decide that they want to suck cocks, then from the other side of their face say that an 8 year old knew exactly what he was doing when he killed someone. it's perverted and obscene.
Perhaps since the software was being hosted over AWS, they'll next go after Amazon for selling surveillance systems.
I would say this is one of the silliest things I've ever heard, but I've only just started reading
Hang up and drive!
So I'm sitting at a light and a local cop in an SUV drives by and he is... wait for it... talking on his fucking cell phone. If those charged with enforcing the law, (and traffic laws are laws after all), are incapable of abiding by the law, then I'm not sure there's a good answer to this "problem."
12 MILLION people died in WWII.
I think it was more like 50 million, but who's counting.
Ain't nobody got time for that...
As a new developer at a young-ish software company, I've been told my communication skills need some work.
Is your manager telling you that your communication skills need work, or is it your co-workers?
If it's your manager, then part of his/her job is to help you improve; he/she needs to suggest how you can improve your communications skills.
If it's not your manager, then talk to (communicate with) your manager, tell them you're concerned that your communication skills may need some work and ask them for suggestions. It's part of their job to help you improve, so they should have no problem offering advice.
If your manager isn't willing to offer any help, then think about looking for a new job and moving on.
Unless you really believe the nutball theory that evil UN men in black will use those databases to swoop in and start confiscating guns indiscriminately then it's pretty implausible that holding gun sellers and owners accountable would violate anyone's rights.
It was exactly that "nutball" confiscation of guns, perpetrated by James against Protestants, that led to the assertion of the right in the British Bill of Rights and which in turn led to its inclusion in our Second Amendment.
I'm sure I don't know what you mean by holding gun sellers and owners accountable. Hold them accountable for what? Are you suggesting that gun sellers and owners are, by definition, guilty of some crime for which they must be held responsible? If they've done something "wrong" and have been judged guilty, as you seem to suggest, what's the point of a list? Why not just punish them?
