let's think about it. If NES rates change, they send a notice, no more. If insurance changes, homeowners or any other, they send a notice. If a consumer doesn't bother to read it, that's a consumer folly. Other than sitting down personally with every single policy holder and making sure they understand in person and sign the contract, there's not a way to make sure anyone understands anything - and then it's still up to the agent's judgement.
When my credit card company changes terms, they send me a notice. If I continue to pay or don't call them to question, that's on me.
I don't see a problem with this bill
am I reading the same article you are? the legislation... "ensuring that teachers are permitted to teach "scientific strengths and scientific weaknesses" of theories such as evolution and climate change. So, to me, this means that it ensures the rights of teachers to teach actual science. Did I read it incorrectly?
btw... he was just cutting up and making a joke. Public property = public access. I'm sure my taxes greatly overpaid any power they might use.
lol - I haven't been on twitter in years and I wasn't an Adams at that point, It appears you are making the same assumptions about me that I did you. That's ok, but as I said, assumptions are in appropriate.
We really should take this out of this particular article's comments or we'll both be banned :)
I get more than enough spam and deal with it regularly so message me onewhisper 2 at yahoo dot com
This does raise an interesting issue, but it has nothing to do with this article or ON
I would enjoy a discussion with you
you're right Paul and I apologize sincerely for thinking it was her directly. There are many other blogs with a much different opinion. I should not have assumed. That assumption is definitely my error.
Some things you should know about the person that composes that particular blog. I met her on the Plaza. I have spoken with her on many occasions online. She seems to be a good person and portrays herself as positive. However, when it comes to action, her actions have been very negative. We live by our actions, not just our words.
Matt, who was most of this particular blog's content, has been on the plaza from day one. Is he a young man who doesn't quite live up to her expectations. He does everything he can possibly do to move the movement forward. He is positive, yet he calls people out when he sees wrong doing.
Take notice - the face on the cam for the GA and just connecting with the Occupiers isn't hers. It's Matt. It's Jason. It's Buck, etc.
She is a person who hides behind a keyboard. I have spoken with her personally and tried to create some positive for the movement, only to be met with negative. If there's an issue, give ON a resolution that is positive. How can we fix this issue? She doesn't try to help with solutions. She only whips up anger. I have tried very diligently to try to meet her "demands", but there's absolutely no flexibility. I have tried to connect with her on many positive levels to be met with "it's my way or the highway". This movement is about democracy and every single person's opinion has the same weight.
With her, her opinion should rule. I have tried. I have talked. I have proposed compromise.
Yet, she puts this opinion, acknowledged, and people take it as truth, because they don't know better :)
thank you very much for letting me know that this wasn't her - this time
Norma, is it really necessary that you vomit your bile every time you see an ON story?
The law does apply to all public ground, not just Legislative Plaza. So, all the homeless who have slept there for years - no more. All the homeless who sleep under bridges and in small tent encampments off the roads - no more. All the homeless who sleep in Centennial Park (don't pretend you don't know where) - no more. So, where are we going to build all the homeless shelters? Who's going to pay for them? Who's going to work at them? Who's going to make sure they have all the necessary supplies and equipment to feed, clothe and house the Nashville homeless population? Oh yea, the taxpayers. How will this happen? It'll happen by increased taxes, just like it always does. If any person isn't provided with shelter, under this law, they must be evicted. How many extra officers will it take to evict them and regularly patrol those areas? If the homeless are not evicted, welcome the lawsuits by the people who were. That means ... you guessed it! More tax dollars to fight the lawsuits.
This isn't an Occupy Nashville issue. It's a state mandate that makes absolutely no sense and will ultimately end up costing taxpayers more money than they ever imagined.
As far as ON goes, no drinking or drugs are allowed on the plaza and they police themselves. The vast majority of occupiers are employed. Quite a few of us, who don't camp for various reasons, but support ON in other ways, likely have better jobs than many Nashvillians. Making blanket statements about a group of people is just plain moronic.
BTW, Nashville Metro regularly drops the homeless off at the plaza and tells them to go to the camp for food and shelter. I wonder where Metro will drop them off now?
