But Honestly...

I am sorry to say that honesty appears to no longer be a valued virtue in our society.  Many of us stretch the truth to the breaking point or even make up outrageous stories to get what we want, whether it be some type of advantage or just to avoid the consequences of a previous misdeed.  The illegality of fraud seems to have been reduced to little more than a technicality....more

Foreclosures: Fairness vs. "The Law"

I am being evicted and forced to move again, because the banks have stolen my landlord’s house.   Truly.  When I share this, sometimes people ask:  “Well, did they make their payments?” – a question which reflects a degree of ignorance that is at the heart of a great injustice, and a serious misunderstanding amongst people in our country.

Personal Injury: Why Bloggers Need to Know the Law

Bloggers need to know about personal injury and what laws pertain to it. As bloggers, we all open our doors to our readers. We reveal our names, what we love to do, and sometimes, even our emotions and thoughts. Unfortunately, this means we are bound to either get hurt – or, if we’re not careful, we might be the ones ending up hurting someone else.On our blogs, we write about thoughts, ideas, reviews, revelations, and other topics that may provide a degree of discomfort to a few readers. For instance, giving a restaurant a rating of one star out of five – and mentioning the fly you saw swimming happily in your soup – might get you slapped with a lawsuit.Blogging and Personal InjuryPersonal injury is defined as injury to oneself, may it be to the mind or the body. Anyone (or any company, for that matter) who gets mentioned on your blog in a bad light just might file for a lawsuit against you, citing a count of personal injury, among others.In the above example, someone else is the purported victim. In other instances, the blogger is actually the one who has to file the lawsuit....more

#NaBloPoMo Day 23: The Practice of Medicine (Health Freedom)

For those of you who do not already know, I live in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania — a place where we have some of the most anti-government minded folks, yet some of the most oppressive legislature. It seriously boggles the mind.I have spent the last couple days investigating the nuances of our laws regarding the practice of medicine (POM) and complimentary alternative modalities and medicine (CAM). It is total bullshit, if I may be so bold. POM in Pennsylvania is defined as follows:...more
