“Lord deliver our senators from the paralysis of analysis that waits for
the miraculous. Use them to battle the demonic forces that seek to engulf us,”

 :clap:  I am soooo glad he said that!

Its business AS USUAL for their sorry worthless asses!!!!!

I said what I said!!!!

you know whats old to us is NEW to them...them being the Younger generation.  :snicker

Gotta give her credit.

A Texas woman claims she got herself out of $70,000 in debt — and is on her way to making $1 million by teaching others how to do the same.

Jasmine Taylor, 31, from Amarillo, said she lost her job and struggled to make ends meet in early 2021, buried under $60,000 in student loans and another $9,000 in medical and credit card debt.

That’s when she discovered “cash stuffing” on social media, a money-management practice where you put your debit and credit cards away and place all your cash into designated envelopes for rent, groceries, shopping, etc.

“I put aside money for bills in envelopes. I put money aside for variable expenses, which is weekly spending,” she told CNBC of her monthly process.


Amsterdam is asking young British men to “stay away” if they plan to visit the city to cut loose and “go wild”.

The Netherlands’ capital’s new online campaign to tackle nuisance tourism launched this week and targets visitors between the ages of 18 and 35, the city’s local authority announced in a news release on Tuesday.

If British tourists search online for terms such as “stag party Amsterdam,” “cheap hotel Amsterdam” or “pub crawl Amsterdam,” a video advertisement will appear, warning them of the consequences of drinking too much, taking drugs or causing trouble through antisocial behavior.


There’s little more the president can do about mass shootings. There’s nothing the new GOP-controlled Congress is likely to do to prevent mass shootings. And there’s reason to think state gun control laws could be in jeopardy.

That means this cycle of gun violence remains sad, predictable and permanent.

There have already been 16 shootings at US schools in the first months of 2023, and 405 kids have been killed by guns in America. The total number of child gun deaths was 1,680 in 2022, according to the Gun Violence Archive.

Most states, including Tennessee, still don’t have a red flag (also known as extreme risk) law, according to a database maintained by the activist group Everytown for Gun Safety.

Here’s what we know about the foundation behind it

The project is largely funded by the Atlanta Police Foundation, a multimillion-dollar nonprofit that supports the Atlanta Police Department. The foundation is one of at least 150 like it across the US that CNN reviewed that say they fill crucial budget gaps, not dissimilar to a nonprofit supporting a library or public school.

“Our role in Atlanta is to help provide, to develop new programs which can ultimately reduce crime,” said Rob Baskin, the Atlanta Police Foundation’s vice president and director of public affairs.

Critics argue these nonprofits — many of which were launched after the wave of protests when a Black 18-year-old was killed by police in Ferguson, Missouri, in in 2014 — are unaccountable to the public and create channels for corporate influence in law enforcement.

The backlash over the new training facility is raising public debate over how involved private philanthropy should be in policing, according to Seth Stoughton, a professor of law and criminal justice at the University of South Carolina.

“Police foundations don’t have democratic accountability the way that a police agency does,” Stoughton said.

General Discussion Forum / Nurse fired after hugging coworker
« on: Yesterday at 08:48:10 AM »
Nurse Seong Oh, 57, was discharged from his position at Auckland City Hospital after hugging a fellow nurse “too tightly” in Feb. 2021, reported. Oh allegedly greeted a coworker with a hug before holding tightly onto their waist and then brushing their cheek, according to an Auckland District Court hearing.

While Judge Tony Fitzgerald said the hospital had a culture of hugging, the female coworker reportedly felt that Oh was trying to kiss her.

Emory Healthcare partners with Press Ganey to improve nursing effectiveness, satisfaction
Oh reportedly attempted to apologize as the nurse left the area to inform a supervisor. Oh previously admitted to a charge of indecent assault. Judge Fitzgerald added that a tribunal hearing will dictate if Oh must surrender his nursing registration. If convicted, Oh will also be unable to visit his elderly father within the U.S.

“Don’t touch your colleagues unless you are confident that they are happy with, and expecting, that physical contact,” Maeltzer, a partner at the Auckland law firm Hesketh Henry, told Scrubs Magazine. “That’s just a life rule.

“On the other side of it, if you feel uncomfortable with an interaction with a colleague, you should raise your concerns.

What do yall think?
Is the firing justified?
Did the hugged coworker overreact?


I think that they could have just given him a written warning UNLESS he has a history of hugging coworkers AND making them feel uncomfortable.
I cannot say that she overreacted
I DON'T allow strangers to hug me, nor coworkers or the people at church [at least when I used to go].

Folks really should respect folks' space and keep their hands to themselves.

small [700 students] private methodist college.

I believe private colleges of this size are going to continue closing unfortunately.

And if its a state school with 700 students......  :shrug:


My apologies to you peeps for what may seem like a harangue.  I might as well get ahold of myself because in the next day or so, the Nashville school shooting will be old news.  And we'll ALL brace ourselves for the scene of the NEXT horrific school shooting.

God Bless America.  :no:

Strike, you are free to express whatever it is you feel a need to express.
When its close to home, it hits a little differently but the impact is the same all over.

 :no:  This is ameriKKKa's 129 school shooting in 2023 and March hasn't even ended yet.

Today March 28, 2023 is the 87th day in 2023. There are 278 days left in the year. that math!!!   NOTHING has changed since these school shooting began HOW LONG AGO?

The Story goes every single time:

School Shooting---> Mass Media Coverage---->  Mass Outrage----> Numerous Solutions offered----> NOTHING DONE---->  Outrage and
 Solutions fade away as something else has happened by then-----> School Shooting AGAIN and the cycle continues.    :shrug:


Evanston City Council votes in favor of expanding its reparations program to repair housing discrimination
As a child, Robin Rue Simmons didn’t know the Evanston neighborhood she called home was an area where Black families were once forced to live.

Rue Simmons grew up just north of Chicago in Evanston’s 5th Ward, where banks refused to give mortgage loans to Black families until 1969.

In Evanston, Black people were restricted to a certain portion of the 5th Ward and excluded from other parts of the city.

The area “was disinvested in, stripped of a neighborhood school and access to health care,” Rue Simmons told CNN.

“There were specific anti-black zoning laws and housing practices that are responsible for our racial segregation – not only our physical segregation, but our wealth gaps and home ownership gaps and all other racial gaps that we have here in Evanston,” she said.
