Questions you should ask yourself about your Strong Female Character. From this excellent article: http://t.co/efkvvUqsum

Does she have one or two genuine, real-life flaws that make her a real person, not issues that turn her into a mess just when she’s needed most?  Has she a fear or phobia, an enemy, obligations elsewhere?  Has she been a lone wolf up till now and must learn to be part of a team, or has she been in charge for so long that she can’t adjust to someone else being in charge?  (Or, upon being placed in charge, is she so timid about it that someone else takes over to the detriment of the team, and she realizes it’s her fault for not taking over when she was given the job, and she must do so now, hard and fast?)

Q
You say all cops are bastards but the first thing you will do if you get robbed is call the cops.

There are alternatives to calling the cops.  For example you can file an notarized affidavit with any court that does the exact same thing as filing a police report.  Well it does everything except get the cops to investigate.  I might file a police report and an affidavit if a firearm or my truck was stolen.  These things usually have ways to prove they are mine built right into them.   But if someone stole my goddamn crescent wrench it’s almost impossible to prove which wrench is mine .  The cops wont put the effort into finding a $100 wrench that they would a registered firearm or automobile.  

No matter what is stolen the affidavit is probably more powerful in the event of a problem than the police report.  The police report doesn’t get filed into the public record until charges are laid with the court.  Police have been known to “forget” to do their job and it’s not a stretch to say the report never got transferred from the cop’s notebook to their recording system.  But when you file an affidavit it becomes public record.  For the courts or police to lose or improperly file an affidavit is a very serious problem as compared to losing or improperly handling a police report.  The police lose or refuse to file reports all the time.

The affidavit is more powerful for many reasons.  The most important is that the police rarely have the time to follow up on these things.  They need to fill their ticket and arrest quota.  Chasing down a wrench that can’t be effectively proven to be the one in question isn’t a priority.

Another benefit is that an affidavit keeps the injury private.  When you have a cop file a police report the injury is transferred to the government.  It’s now their injury and you willingly surrendered all of your rights to it.  For example did you ever notice that all charges laid in court have a monetary value attached to them?  The charges might be “petty theft of a wrench valued at $100” and the value of the charges could be set to $500. What’s that $500 about?  If the thief is convicted do you ever see the money?  Not if you called the cops. You surrendered that right when you brought the cops about it.  The crime went from a private injuryto a public one.  So not only will the thief be sentenced to way too much time in prison for theft but you don’t get your rightful compensation for the injury.  Now the judge gets your compensation added to his retirement fund or something.  Is it any wonder why Judges are so rich and that they get considerably richer as they move up the judicial ladder?

Another thing a police report does is subjects a petty thief to inhumane punishment.  Why should they go to prison over your stolen wrench when they could just pay you the $500 and return the wrench?  What benefit is there to society to subject another human being to those monsters in the “justice” system?  Don’t you really just want your wrench back and compensation for the time and money the theft caused you?  Is a wrench really worth all that inhumane treatment?  Geez man if I get my wrench back and compensation for having to go buy a new wrench in the mean time what more can I really ask for?  Is it worth risking the thief being brutalized in prison over?

The police, judges and lawyers all conspire to keep this from you.  Either they aren’t allowed to tell you or they hide it because they all aspire to move up in this scam.  So by safeguarding the scam for those higher on the ladder they are safeguarding their future as well.  If this information was more widely known the whole balance of power could shift.  These guys won’t give you the information that could render them obsolete.

thank you.

Did not know this information.

detrea:

The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family.  That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.

The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.

Date someone who meets you half way. Date someone who brings you a glass a water when they get themselves one. Date someone who makes sure you don’t spend money on ridiculous things. Date someone your ex hates and your mom loves. Date someone who’d rather spend a Friday night watching movies, than out with 50 people they barley even talk to. Date someone who sleeps on your chest and leaves a little puddle of drool. Don’t date someone who makes you leave oceans of tears.

I’d just like to point out that the paper says “the louder they laugh, the harder it is for them to hear you cry” and that breaks my heart

You heard it right folks, the FBI considered free breakfasts for poor children to be the most dangerous internal threat to the country. Literally the kind of thing Jesus would do was the most dangerous threat to the country.

I dont understand why, for a girl to be considered badass and strong in movies and books, she has to be tomboyish, not wear makeup and not like girly things?

Girls should be allowed to put on lipstick and flowery dresses then conquer the world by crushing the necks of their enemies under their 6 inch heels

Y’all need Buffy.
