Someone handed me literature with a logo consisting of a mandolin crossed with an assault rifle, full of rhetoric about stealing from the children, suddenly felt like I had entered the twilight zone.
There's already quite a few laws on the books that are designed to protect copyright that don't require due process. These new laws just step further in that direction. But, as mentioned by others, these laws weren't really written to protect you, but the patent/copyright trolls. Big guns with big legal departments.
I don't think the legal system has in ANY way caught up to current technology. It seems that anything posted on the internet, be it music, photography, writing, etc. can and will be "shared" whether the creator intended that use or not.
I love my local post office. I don't go in person often, as I don't need to, but the customer service has been good to excellent. We have one employee who is downright hilarious. Unfortunately, it is closing. But they aren't all bad, and the employees put up with the public, a thankless task.
This is a pretty extreme photo, agreed.
The most depressing part of this article is that you talk all about the homeless, but you don't actually talk TO them. They aren't dangerous objects or unsightly wild animals to be herded about, but actual people. You might try talking to them sometime, it can help break down misconceptions, which you obviously have since you feel so unsafe and choose to live elsewhere. The homeless - especially the mentally ill - are far more likely to be victims of crime than to be those perpetrating it. Things that are legal to do in your own home (sleep, go to the bathroom) are suddenly illegal to do in public, so they get caught up in the criminal justice system as well for simply trying to carry out the daily activities of being human. There have been countless articles about how many Americans are only one paycheck away from being homeless themselves. Did you really think this article is a constructive way to approach this growing problem, of not enough low-income housing, of generations of people caught up in a criminal justice system, of employers who aren't hiring even the qualified people in a down economy let alone those who may have less of skillset? How about how difficult is to manage a health condition when you're on the streets, where are you going to refrigerate your insulin when you don't even know where your next meal is coming from?
The fractured support network we have in Atlanta is a mess - welcome to America - but attitudes like yours are the first thing that need addressing.
I'm terribly sorry your football game group was inconvenienced by the suffering and misfortune of others.
Thank you for these photos.
Hm, wonder about the Parks funding?
