Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I have lots to say on this subject, but I don't think this is the right venue.

Keeping people happy is driving me crazy.
Just bough after many, many years of resistance a cell phone.

I forgot and left it's box with instructions in my truck. This lil' thing is buzzing like crazy. I've asked it with futile frustration what DOOO you want? It's mocking me. LOL. One more buzz I'll take the battery out and shove it away in a drawer

It's a Samsung..I hear DC has an ap for that..

Munky.

If I knew how to add an ap I'd take you up on that.
It's probably my kids txting me. They will get tired of that and actually call me like a human being.

That's how I used to be. We never bothered having texting as a regular feature on our Verizon phones because we just didn't bother using it. IF we sent/received a text it was something like 25 cents each. With our current provider (Ting) you don't pay for any one of the three services (voice/text/web) until you use it during your billing cycle. Then the billing is charged in steps. We can exchange up to 100 texts for $3 a billing cycle, then the next tier is 101 to 1000 texts for...an additional $2. I found out how terrific texting was to get business done in December. We kept our daughter up to date on our Christmas travel plans, and she could send a message with a question she had that didn't need to be answered immediately. So much more efficient because if one of us has a quick question and calls...well, there goes the next hour! Texting can save time and confusion.

Of course arrangements would need to be made for child care. If the person working in the field doesn't like the job, then they could train for a job they would like to work at.

The point is, if they work for their sustenance, they develop pride in their own ability, and that they are working for their living. And those trying to sponge off of the system, find that they may be working harder than if they were working at another kind of job. At the very least, the work could be temporary until a better job is found.

I wonder how many people would be on welfare if they had work presented to them as a requirement for assistance.

Other than those that are severely disabled, it is already a requirement.
