Your voice does count........

........even if it seems unheard and ignored for months.

...In a sudden change of direction, Hennepin County moved closer Tuesday toward a partial rollback of a smoking ban....

a change in the Hennepin County smoking ban seems imminent, I should be happy however...

(I did title this post your voice does count, I must however, claim exception to that regarding the rest of this post. )*

I would like to have been there Tuesday for the Hennepin County Commission meeting, but I was in Hennepin County Family Court trying to resolve the reason I cannot pay child support..
(I filed for this hearing on April 28, 05; it finally gets heard July 26, 05...and of course it's not the court's fault for the 3 month delay and subsequent 3 months unpaid support...ie the court does not recognize this motion dated for 4/28/05 it recognizes the motion dated as 7/26/05...nice railroad job)

And what is that reason Marcus you didn't pay child support while waiting for this case to be heard...(picture the scene from Pink Floyd's The Wall with the judge pointing her bony little finger at the accused)

...um because of the smoking bans I CAN'T SELL SMOKEETERS TO BARS & RESTAURANTS, or more precisely bars & restaurants refuse to purchase air filtration equipment because of bans and the state's threat to ban, in other words I have no money coming in.

We'll Marcus that's obvious, that's the reason you filed the motion.

Oh I'm glad you understand your honor.

Of course Marcus that'll be 1300.00 by Monday or its the workhouse for 90 days.

I'd gladly pay it but..... because of the smoking bans I CAN'T SELL SMOKEETERS TO BARS & RESTAURANTS or more precisely bars & restaurants refuse to purchase air filtration equipment because of bans and the state's threat to ban. But again I have no money coming in

I'll gladly find a job, I've been submitting resumes for sales positions for months now.

Uh..ok Marcus that'll be 1300.00 by Monday or its the workhouse for 90 days.

Won't that make it a little difficult for me to continue to job hunt, interview, or accept a job offer?
Uh..ok Marcus that'll be 1300.00 by Monday or its the workhouse for 90 days.

There is no discussion in court, there is the judge's ruling and that is that.....it is not required that the judge even be human, a robot could have provided the same recorded, rigid, unyielding ruling....the benefit of a robot at least is that some logic and common sense would have been utilized in determining the subsequent ruling....not likely with a matriarchal judge in family court....quite the contrary.

*Your voice does count........except when it is a male voice in a matriarchal family court setting.

Isn't life grand....screwed by RWJF, American Lung, etc. out of a job.....then screwed in family court for being out of a job......

It's a good thing we conservatives are optimists........though the glass is now only about 10% full.
