  • Why do we need armed police at roadworks, I have just come back from my usual 3 months in Europe.?

    They, over there, have road maintenance like every one else, but you never see an armed cop around the site. They seem to get on Okay using mobile traffic lights and their roads can be even more crowded than ours and there are no problems, so my question is, what is it about us here in the USA that we need armed guards at roadworks?

    My father is in Leavenworth for mob related activities, my mother is a hopeless drug addict and alcoholic. I have a sister that has been arrested 43 times for prostitution and street soliciting. My younger brother is on the run from the police for committing lewd acts with minor boys. Just recently I have met a charming girl and we seem to be hitting it off pretty well. I feel that this is the girl for me and she has expressed a similar feeling for me. It is not unreasonable to think that we will eventually marry. Here is my problem, for which I need your help and advise together with your understanding, should I confess to her that I am a republican?

  • Why is it, i ask this question primarily of the police?

    That so many people that come into contact with our cops end up with at best broken heads and at worst shot dead. other countries do not seem to have the same statistics. Perhaps a cop or two would enlighten us.

  • Who received the ownership of the land from bombed property unclaimed after WW2?

    I have often wondered what happened to property and sites of bombed out homes and businesses in London and other English cities after the war. There must have been many properties where the owners and heirs were killed in the war.

    A woman asked a question requesting her rights because she is a sloppy housekeeper and does not clean up after her toddler and she gets ants coming to the food the slob has not cleaned up. She also stated that using any kind of insecticide was not an option. My answer to her was "if insecticides are not to be used, how do you propose the ants are gotten rid of? should we just ask them to leave?" That answer she considered an abuse and so had my answer deleted, what is your informed opinion, was it abusive.

    I am not answering anymore questions because I have been castigated by the site for answering a teacher, who asked "how many sick days is she allowed on a one year contract", I replied, that she should at least be able to read her employment contract. I pitied her students if she could not read and understand such a document which of course will have all this information in it. I do not think it unreasonable to expect a teacher to be able to read! Why is the truth such a problem. Sometimes it can be not what we are looking for, but it must be accepted. The truth does set you free, sometimes it takes a little longer than we would like, but it certainly does
