Denying anyone the right to vote goes against everything we stand for. Now, I am all for photo ID for verification purposes, and would hope that voters make an informed decision, but aside from that, no restrictions.
Which goes back to my original position of society kicking people in the teeth.
And, once again, your position in this thread makes it clear responding to your position is a waste of time.Then again in my mind a woman wastes time/money getting ANY degree, since her place isn't in the work force that requires a degree to begin with.
It's nothing to do with luck and a lot more to do with society. Jobs are scarce, labor is in abundance, she comes from a poor family and has loan payments kicking in soon. She applied for jobs related to her degree and many many more not related to her degree. She was told time and again she was over-qualified, even though wages had nothing to do with it.Your girlfriend apparently isn't as lucky.
Why would an employer not hire her when she was asking for no benefits related to her Master's degree? She wasn't asking for master's degree level salary, she wasn't even asking for salary. She was asking for a job, any job, which could pay bills.Not at all. Why should an employer pay her a Master's Degree salary if she isn't doing Master's level work?
This post of yours at least exposed your misunderstanding of the situation and what she was going for. And I can understand where you would think that an employer would not give elevated salary, but she wasn't asking for it. Furthermore, I would argue that's just another limitation of today's society when there aren't jobs for those with degrees in higher levels of education.Responding to me on any topic in any thread is a waste of time, but people still seem to do it.
No matter how you want to look at it, most people who are on welfare don't want to be on welfare and a great number of them are there for reasons outside of their control.
Correct, and it was a long hard fight.
A lot of good people had to give their lives for us to get to this point and I don't believe that we are ever going back no matter what a few people on the far right think.
I could be wrong but I don't believe that the U.S. Supreme Court is going to let anyone's vote be taken away because they received a little assistance from the government.
Let's wait and see what happens or doesn't happen.
