America sounds like a really # place to live.


For the most part, it's not that bad.

Unfortunately, every thing does seem to be going kinda wacko here lately......


Maybe 'cause it's election year..... maybe?

This is about the 3rd time I had to resort to another search engine to get other news links that I couldn't find on Google.

For those that don't approve of the original link [WND], here is another link :

www.abc15.com...

Valley woman told she could not hand out free bottled water in summer heat Read more: www.abc15.com...


In a letter to the city,Whitehead demanded the City issue a formal, written apology to Crow-Smith, assure her no City officials will interfere in future with her distribution of water, and require City workers go through training on the proper enforcement of the City’s code.

If not, a lawsuit could follow. Read more: www.abc15.com...



But Crow-Smith said she hopes to avoid a lawsuit and just wants to be able to hand out water. “But I don't think it's even about religious beliefs.

I think anybody should be able to giveaway water on the sidewalk to anybody. It's hot and it's a nice thing to do,” said Crow-Smith. Read more: www.abc15.com...


Regardless of which source is more acceptable, this situation DID occur.

WND?

I'd be hard pressed to believe anything they say, unless an alternate source can be found with the same information. Usually there isn't.

I am normally one of the first to criticize religious based acts that are disruptive but
i must be clear in this post, this is a dangerous step, this is a case where
a human is using the teachings in a way that is truly admirable.

i say this is a dangerous step because this is truly something we should all flip
out about, they cannot ever decide for us to whom we may give our means for
sustaining life, that is a step i for one will never tolerate, if i chose to give my
sustenance to another human being, be it for religious views or simply to
put a smile on another human beings face, then i will do so, i do not care
that vendor number 3 is going broke because hes charging 3$ for .23$ worth
of water, this is something worth dieing for, they cannot take this, its just too far.
i will not ever be forced to provide charity and i will never ever ever be forced
to not give when my heart tells me to.

they want to over charge for things and treat us like just another product of
their greed, anyone remember the new woodstock ordeal, you couldnt bring
outside drinks and vendors were way overcharging for water and the basics,
well that ended in a huge riot with things being burnt and people getting hurt
yet i sure didnt see any of the price gougers in jail for their responsibility for
the event, if you take what people need to live and then try to dictate that
those people can not even share what they have with each other, the very
basis for civilization WILL fall apart, heck that is the basis for our civilization.

Although I can see the reasons for not doing, it.

I have to say that was pretty dick for him enforcing it,

Exactly why people have no hope. Why not help them to make her able to and still end up making money.

Really is pathetic how some people will take it so far as to arrest someone for helping someone. I live in southern Arizona and I give bottles of water away all the time. It gets REALLY hot in the summer (was about 105 the other day while raining lol). Whenever I leave the house I take a few bottles with me, one for myself and an extra for someone at a bus stop or sitting on the corner asking for change or something. Lucky I never got caught I guess...

Aren't garage sales and "second-hand transactions" banned in Louisiana now?
Cashless society, now THAT's Nazi Germany. I would tell them to shove it.

That's not the incendiary headline used by WND, the source for this tale. It wrote: "City: Christians can't give water to thirsty"

See how quick WND was to play the "religious persecution" card?


That's the exact reason why I left out the word "Christians" in the title......
Besides, I didn't want people to use that as excuse to jump all over Christians.

To me, the religious aspect wasn't the motive, but the issue of being told that they couldn't give out water in the hot temps is what was a little unkind and rash. Un-American maybe?? Dunno.....

I did find an alternate source though......ABC out of Phoenix...... so the story is legit.

Nah... not yet at least.

But one does need a permit to have a garage sale, they don't have to pay for it, it's free, but still one is required by the city to obtain one. Of course, there's still a majority of people who aren't in the know about that I'm sure.

We travel for a living, work a lot in this area, and cash is still King at the moment around here......
