Ontario Gives Bonus’s – Amish Healthcare
Reasons You Just Might Be A Liberal (Libtard)
You get extremely upset about the idea of the government coming into our bedrooms unless it’s to give everyone free birth control.
You believe that people who hold the exact same position on gay marriage that Barack Obama did last year are horrible bigots who are unfit to hold office.
You believe that Obama putting more Americans on food stamps than any other President in history is a feature, not a bug.
You think Halliburton bidding for and winning government contracts was a scandal since Dick Cheney used to work there, but you think Barack Obama giving away 25 billion dollars in taxpayer money to help out his union cronies at GM and Chevrolet is honest and above reproach.
You believe anti-war protests, dead soldiers, and “grim milestones” ceased to be important the moment Barack Obama was elected and chose to continue many of the same practices he criticized when he ran for office in 2008.
You think Mitt Romney putting his dog on top of his car to take on his vacation is a big deal, but Barack Obama eating a dog to GAIN ITS POWERS isn’t.
The family is the most important social unit among the PA Amish; those with seven to ten children are not uncommon. This high birth rate feeds the growth of the community of Amish in PA, as does the fact that four out of five children choose to become baptized and remain in the church. Jobs, friendships and business opportunities provide incentives to stay. With several generations often living under the same roof, there is both a sense of continuity and participation in family life. Upon reaching teenage years, many youth engage in traditional recreation, but others engage in more worldly activities before choosing whether or not they want to be baptized as adults in the church. In Amish society, older family members are respected and cared for by the family and community, often moving into a special addition to the house. The PA Amish generally do not accept social security and try to avoid the use of nursing homes.
At home and in their community, the Amish in PA speak a dialect of German. This language, originally known as Pennsylvania Deutsch, has gradually become known as Pennsylvania German, or Pennsylvania Dutch. The use of this dialect binds the PA Amish together and naturally limits interaction with the non-Amish. Amish children learn English at school and also study High German for worship services.
Health care practices vary considerably across Amish communities and from family to family. For a basic overview of this aspect of Amish life, please see this information compiled by the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies at Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, Pa. Regarding vaccinations, “The Amish do vaccinate their children,” says Dr. Kevin Strauss, MD, of the Clinic for Special Children in Strasburg, Pa., which specializes in addressing the health needs of the Plain population. “Their overall vaccination rate is lower in comparison to the general populace, but you’ll find a higher rate of vaccination among younger Amish than in older generations. The bi-weekly vaccination clinic that we run is very busy.” Strauss also sees autistic behaviors among the Amish children he treats, “sometimes as a stand-alone condition, but also when the symptoms are one component of a broader medical issue like mental retardation or seizure disorders.”
Mandatory Gun Sentencing
In 2011, Hussein Nur received a mandatory minimum three-year sentence after pleading guilty to carrying a loaded gun outside a northwest Toronto community centre.
Then there’s Leroy Smickle, also convicted of possessing an illegal firearm after his ill-timed posing for a webcam holding his cousin’s gun just as Toronto police officers crashed through an apartment door.
But this time his sentencing judge decided a mandatory three-year sentence would be “grossly disproportionate” to what Smickle deserved so she struck down the law as unconstitutional. “The legislation is requiring me to impose a sentence that constitutes cruel and unusual punishment,” breaching the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Ontario Superior Court Justice Anne Molloy wrote.
This week, both gun cases, along with four others raising similar issues, are before the Ontario Court of Appeal. A rare five-judge panel will hear legal arguments beginning Tuesday.
Policeman told Not to wear Gun or Uniform to Daughters School
A police officer in Arizona has been the subject of controversy after his daughter’s elementary school told him to not wear his uniform when one the school property.
The ban came after parents complained that the Coolidge police officer, Scott Urkov, had brought his child to Entz Elementary School in Mesa wearing his uniform and carrying a gun.
According to school officials, the principal asked Urkov not to bring his gun to school anymore as parents were ‘concerned’.
