best I can tell: associated catholic charities is everywhereBelinda wrote: ↑Sun Aug 09, 2020 10:24 pmIn the olden days when communities were small and local , social welfare was provided by a monastery, or a church organisation, then voluntary charity worked. Now that most people live in cities and there are almost no neighbourhood charitable organisations welfare has to be funded from taxation.henry quirk wrote: ↑Sun Aug 09, 2020 9:05 pmain't invincible, have needed help many tines, always got it from folks who wanted to help, never from folks who were forced to helpGary Childress wrote: ↑Sun Aug 09, 2020 8:53 pm
Well, for whatever it's worth, I would still help you, even if you suddenly found yourself disabled some day. I would still donate to charity and pay my share of taxes. I know you're invincible and would never find yourself in a situation where you needed help, but it would be there for you.
believe it or not: I'm pretty helpful too
but: I help those I choose to, not those who merely have a hand out, and not those I'm directed to
hate to break it to ya: but not everyone who asks for help, deserves it
It would be nice if we could still rely on folks who want to help but voluntary charity is not enough nowadays.
Publicly funded good quality education is very much aimed at teaching people not to be manipulated by others.
again: get thee to a charity
education: as beer virus hysteria has illustrated (by way of shuttin' down public education) most folks can get by eithout the public schools
me: I'm no teacher, but my 14 year old reads, writes, is math tested, is learnin' civics, and anything else I can think of (includin' shotgun practice) daily
school was supposed to reopen aug 17; start was pushed back to sept 8
I'm thinkin' come then, it'll get pushed back again
at this point, I'm good with that: he's learnin' what he needs to (without all the attendant bullshit), he's happy, and -- while I'm no teacher -- I'm not half-bad at it
