free public transit makes so much sense anyway.... high smog or not..... just think about the long term ramifications and savings! it would be amazing BUT it is hard to get the "powers that be" to see long term anything... all they look at, it seems, is how much it would cost them NOW..... BOO BOO BOO on the "powers that be"!!!!!!!

thanks, voodo. :-)

actually, i think the free public transit is an option in a few places already - i'll try to find links. i know a lot of environmentalists advocate that at the very least it should be free on high smog alert days - i think they were going to do that here, but it hasn't passed yet.

Heh - I knew it (see new thread).

Next time I see some gal smoking a spliff and making out with her girlfriend, I'll warn her that not only she is on the path to hell, but she'll probably end up fucking the horse she rode in on. . .

well, unfortunately that will be the reaction of the conservatives HOWEVER in my opinion the legalized "soft drugs" and legalized prostitution are ok and have proven themselves not to be a HUGE out of control problem in that region BUT just because SOME areas of law are "relaxed", it should not be looked at as an open door invitation to every sick freak out there to try to "legalize" or "ligitamize" their heinously criminal activity. So really, liberals (and I do mean QUITE liberal) also "latch onto" say, the openess of a region, as is the case here, and uses that regions relaxed attitudes to try to justify and/or legalize something TRUELY criminal. I think that's frustrating too. Why ruin a good thing by trying to see how far you can push the envelope? I think that actions like this may backfire and cause the more open minded and forward thinking countries to re-think things and maybe start enacting more restrictive laws and regulations.... you know? That would only serve to set back the progress (and yes, I see it as progress) that those free thinking countries have made. There always has to be a party pooper hey? Be it the super conservative do-gooder or the super sick weirdo..... can't we just find an "in between" and be happy? You know? Like... pot = good BUT sex with 12 year olds = BAD..... Oh well....

Well, the "free train travel" aspect of their platform is a good idea at least.

It's frustrating b/c conservatives will just latch onto this shit and say, "See what happens when a society becomes too free and too open? Legalize pot and prostitution and then it all goes to hell!"

OK.... I'm not sure whether to be outraged, enraged or just dumfounded. I read this article and then read it again to make sure it wasn't a joke.... are these people serious????

Oh goodie. DHS pays another small business/website a visit.

Well, at least they didn't shut them down, yet, like they did to Pajiba.

What the heck do they need an occupancy permit for anyway? I've never had to do anythign like that. The city actually gets to say whether you can live there or not?!! Oh heck no..I'd be taking my tax dollars to another town in the first place. That is insane! I smell a Supreme Court case coming out of this one!

voodoo, i don't think the government should have a say even if they Were paying for that family to live. like they've bought that family's rights with money or something? ah, that's just gross.

voodoo princes:

I am just wondering- why did you get married to someone only to get a divorce then end up still living with that same person? Wouldn't it have been much easier to stay married or just not have gotten married at all in the first place?

pepper - again, I agree..... I'm not sure if it violates "human rights" exactly but PLEASE! It violates SOMETHING that's damn sure! I mean, I know that the government CAN put housing regulations on SUBSIDIZED (sp?) housing, but that's cause they (the gov.) is paying for that housing.... BUT, private housing? NOT subsidized? Please! AND, it's not like they said it was a "community" standard, like one of those "home owner associations" thingys where there are rules and regulations in a particular subdivision or whatever, that could actually govern things like this.... I STRONGLY disagree with those "home owner associations" too by the way..... but this was reported as a city regulation (or state maybe, but I think it was at the city level) AND from what I understood of reading the story, the regulation didn't come right out and say "NO UNMARRIED COUPLES MAY LIVE TOGETHER" but it was worded in a way so that conclusion or interpretation could be made.....
bullshit if you asked me.... total bullshit....
like I mentioned, I live with my ex husband and children and we pay our taxes blah blah blah and I'll be damned if someone is gonna tell us we can't live in the place WE PAY FOR.... I think NOT! It's like I tell my family and anyone else who thinks they have an opinion on my life.... "when you start paying my bills and supporting me, then you can have a say in what I do".... the same goes for this poor family and the city they live in.... if the city wants to pay for a home for them and support them, then alrighty BUT until then, the city should have no say at all in their living situation.

it's gotten really easy to only read the applicable posts in these threads. i just want to say thanks girls for not getting distracted by the flotsam and jetsom and to tell you that your words are appreciated.
voodoo, i agree with the lawsuit. like i said that HAS to be a violation of human rights, deciding how many people can reside together is a bit too big brother-ish to me. where's the logic in that at all eh? what about a live in nanny or housekeeper, is that illegal too? maybe she can hire her man as a nanny and he can hire her as a housekeeper (or vice versa, or whatever) and they can pay each other exactly the same wages. ha ha. truly idiotic.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

pepper - One more thought.... I think the MAN and the WOMAN in question, in this situation, should consider suing the city, state, whatever..... I don't usually condone lawsuits and such but in the case of this MAN and WOMAN and their children, I think something should certainly be done..... I hope someone takes up their case and fights for them....
