I wonder how many child-care providers will choose to join the union. I would suspect many wouldn't want to pay the dues. What would the union provide that would make it desirable to join?

This chick must have some demons because the things she did to her ex boyfriend are crazy.  She stabbed him over a dozen times, slit his throat, and shot him in the head!  She started crying after the verdict was read, although if a person is capable of killing someone to that extent I can't picture them crying.  I think she will get the death penalty.

This conservative court seems to be friendly to businesses as they have thrown out or refused to hear several class action lawsuits in recent years. Denied the ability to group together to fight corporate America, citizens have no where else to turn once the Supreme Court hears their case. What do you think of the court's decisions to avoid these cases?

bschub32's curator insight, May 6, 2013 2:20 PM

I found this article very interesting because it questions the decision making of our Nation's largest court.  It seems that our current court has been very generous to businesses.  In fact the article states that the current court is the most business friendly court since World War II.  I would like to know the court’s reasoning behind the refusal to see these cases.  It seems unfair to the citizens that the Supreme Court is providing so much protection to businesses.

This law would never have been passed last year in the GOP controlled house and senate, so this just goes to show how important our votes are in making a difference in our gov't even at the state level.

Sad, Worldwide, Don't Know What Trash culture is, a hint, if it kills or harms people including mentally, THROW IT AWAY

Trash culture is a term for some aspects of modern culture in the UK and USA that peaked in the 1990s and 2000s. [1][2] The term is used for labeling the cultural by-products of modernism with barbarism and injustice.

The term was originally coined by Richard K. Simon, who paraphrased skeptics that linked modern culture with the downfall of society's standards and morals. Trash culture is associated with television, pornography, Smoking and Drugs, fast-food, mass media, popular music, teenage culture, movies, Rap Music, Modern urban fashion, Sagging, Fitted hats, shoewears such as Nike, Adidas, Modern Graffiti and Vandalism, slang terms such as "Swag", "Yolo", "Young money", etc.., excessive use of electronics and smartphones (Blackberries, iPhones, etc.) and other electronic devices, texting and chatting, social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.., and other forums of media. And sometimes, even the modern world.[citation needed] Many shows, films, music and other forms of art that are often associated with Trash culture are branded as having little educational and artistic value.[citation needed] However, many argue that many shows that fall under this category are often taking risks by bringing to light controversial topics.[citation needed] Some also say that these shows have entertainment value, sometimes unintentionally.

Shows, movies and music that have been branded as trash culture, are sometimes found to have been influenced by classical work, such as the show Friends being based on William Shakespeare's Much Ado about Nothing.[citation needed] These works that have elements of trash culture often end up being heralded for taking risks, pushing boundaries, and being ahead of their time.[citation needed]
