Trump isn't cutting anyone. He's requiring abled-bodied to get part time jobs. But what if they just CAN'T get jobs, for whatever reason? Like, they take lots of vacations, and a job would intrude on that? That's not an example of "can't," obviously. Do you mean to deny the existence of &...

I wonder if the tax rates for the middle class were also higher in the 50's & 60's than they are for the middle class today. Since there are far more middle class families and people than the rich, my concern in regard to increased taxation on middle class taxpayers is the possibility of more m...

This analogy fits the thread topic because it always comes back to the taxpayers, the source of funding, the source of the money that is spent in the community. Without acknowledging that taxpayer funding is finite it seems that the ripple effect of the money spent in the economy from government as...

Thats because hard working people like my parents, and my aunts and uncles who are parents, will be the ones who end up paying for all that extra free stuff given to just about anyone who says 'gimme'. While all the millionaire democrat politicians pocket their share of the take. Lots of new taxes ...

People have to apply for food stamps. They have to meet certain requirements in order to get them. If it wasn't for my mom I could never get foodstamps because they ask me all kinds of complex questions that I don't have the answers to. And without them if my mom passes away someday I'll be left st...

Glad to see that they are not targeting children, elderly or disabled. Actually, I would suspect that the people to be kicked off of food stamps probably include a lot of people who really are disabled but just aren't lucky enough to have someone to help them through the byzantine process of applyi...

https://wlos.com/news/nation-world/trump-administration-tightens-food-stamp-work-requirements Their belief seems to be that if you take their food away, you will make them desperate enough to go out and find a job, and people always having a job and earning money themselves is assumed to always be ...

No, but it will probably kick off a lot of shoplifting and probably a few murder-suicides.

Under-diagnosis of older people is a big issue that has not received anywhere near adequate attention. About ten years ago, there was a big hullabaloo about the under-diagnosis of girls and (mostly relatively young) women. The psychotherapeutic establishment took note of said hullabaloo and made som...

I made steps to get an evaluation, but it is very expensive and I fear doing it for nothing, so I didn't get evaluated. A (relatively) very inexpensive option you might want to consider: getting diagnosed at a place where psychology grad student "externs" work under the supervision of a f...

We need more of us to be willing to work together to build the autistic community and thereby, hopefully also, spark the creation of more autistic-friendly workplaces than now exist.

maybe you could start your own group and advertise it in your area. You can publish details in the classifieds and on bulletins at nearby libraries (I've often seen groups advertised in this way). Taking the lead will force you into the center of things, at least. I agree with this suggestion. I've...
