Hi Lita! Americans have so much to learn from our neighbors to the North. You guys have universal healthcare and free early education. Well, that's what a friend from Kitchener (ON) told me.

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

You're welcome Lita. emoticon
Don, talking about "laws and lawmakers," have you heard of the Seattle welfare recipient finally having her home raided after living there for nearly ten years?? Here's the thing: she lived in a waterfront house worth more than a million dollars!
My mom works for welfare and she wrote a letter to our state senator about the majority of her clients driving brand new BMW's but still request for more assistance. Our neighbor is an undocumented worker who is receiving welfare assistance after claiming that her boyfriend left her with a child... she has been married with this 'boyfriend' and they now own three brand new cars. All the cars have been fully paid by cash and she doesn't have to work at all. As long as he works, they are living like this Washington state welfare recipient. If the government was smart, all they need to do is look at the applicants' tax returns. I know this isn't a social worker forum but this is insane!
This also happens in the hospitals nationwide! As long undocumented workers have no contacts in the country, they get proper medical treatment and leave the bill to the government. But if you are a hardworking American citizen, medical treatment costs you an arm and a leg. Literally.

Agreed! I think this is yet another example of the laws, lawmakers and businesses all working together against the best interests of you and I: the citizen / consumer / voter!

Happy Friday Fellow Sparkers!

Yahoo! featured an article yesterday about a dentist suing a patient for a negative online review. I found it appalling that a dentist, who is legally obligated to offer quality services which is best for the patient, is forcing her patients to legally maintain privacy about their services. You are already obligated to keep your patient's information confidential, but to require that in return of your patient? I simply don't understand the relevance of this contract. The only reason why I would find her requiring patients to sign this is because she knows that she wouldn't be delivering standard of care and doesn't want others knowing about her horrible work. This particular dentist gives us dental professionals a more horrible reputation.
