Proselytizing is condescending. Making it a condition of food and shelter is vile. The Constitution tasks the secular state with “providing for the general welfare” and exempts establishments of religion from all responsibility. By categorizing the exclusion of such organizations as “freedom of religion” we ignore that the founders had a long history of religious efforts to manage comunities to refer to and determined that arrangement did not work. Beter to rely on individuals to define their needs and request assistance.
Exclusivity is a marketing ploy. Imagine paying $650 for three days of access to visit the eroding beaches all Georgians used to visit for free! Way to pimp Mother Nature!
And for what? To hobnob with a bunch of political has-beens?
I need a new word for certificates of debt or IOUs. Arrogating CD for certificate of deposit was clever. Many people are averse to debt, so it is best not to talk about it. It used to be that “money” was tabu. But, that word has now been rehabilitated, in part because the word says nothing about the nature of what it references. A quantified debt. How can that be characterized to convey both the relationship and its dimension?
Is that what afflicts the ex-men? Compulsion. Does that explain the prevalence of exhibition, exposure, exploitation and even exclusion. A cost-free psychic high?The brain’s assignment over night? What kind of ridicule would work best to stump the Dude.
On the shore at Sea Island. While the tracks will disappear with the next tide, the sands, compressed by heavy equipment, won’t be supporting organisms for some time. It’s no wonder the dunes never regenerate.
Water and sewer rates are going to have to go up to pay for $35 million in reatment plant improvements.
The abundant warm water prompted some reflection on the services and practices we expect from our Brunswick and Glynn Joint Water and Sewer Commission (JWSC) and the fact that some of our oldest neighborhoods are still not being properly served. And the system does not seem to be set up to change that.
Non-governmental U.S. enterprise has always looked upon the governmental sector as a cash cow, a source of income requiring no effort. In the beginning, the income/benefits were composed mainly of land and natural resources to exploit and take to market for a profit. More recently, as much of the continent has been allocated as private property and the federal treasury is the only source of currency, the entrepreneurs are after plain old cash. The view with envy any money that doesn’t flow into their hands.
