Embassy Of Saudi Arabia In Canada Tell the Saudi Arabian Gov't Official (Ambassador, etc),

This is way too harsh a punishment.

That, he should just exile Raif Badawi. Let; Raif go to Canada, where his family already are.

Tell him; to free all the "political activists", let them all, go to Canada. 

I'm sure that; they and Mr Badawi, would promise never to return to Saudi Arabia.

This is a much better solution. One much more acceptable to the World. Who are watching.

Saudi Arabian authorities arrested Blogger; Raif Badawi, on June 17, 2012.

They charged him with insulting Islam and creating the “Saudi Arabian Liberals” website for social and political debate.

The Criminal Court; pronounced a sentence of 10 years in prison, 1000 lashes and a fine of 1 million riyals (about $290,000 CDN).

After Raif serves a decade in jail, he is also forbidden to travel for the following decade and from participating in the media.

It is; in the best interest of Saudi Arabia, to release Raif and other, prisoners with frivolous charges, like his Lawyer, for instance and all "political" prisoners.

It would make the Saudi gov't, look good to the world.

It's time, Saudi Arabia got into the 21st century. They're always boasting, about how progressive and modern their gov't is? Then; let's see them, prove it!

Take Action to Free Raif Badawi's Lawyer, Waleed Abu al-Khair. He has had his sentence upheld upon appeal and will be serving the full 15 years in prison. He is a prisoner of conscience.

Waleed Abu al-Khair is among a dozen prominent activists who were all sentenced in 2013 to long prison terms based on trumped-up charges that the authorities resorted to after failing to silence them by other means.

About National Hispanic Heritage Month TIME For Kids

Library of Congress

Classroom Resources for National Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day span, starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.

The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.

In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively.

Note To NJ Governor Chris Christie: Regarding State Workers and Their Pensions




Sorry; Gov Christie, but, this time you're wrong. 
Teachers And My Mother, Taught Me Everything I know. 

For My Professor And Constant Muse; Theodore Adams, Dr Of Sociology.
 

How'm I doing, Roberta?
Kismet; that we're both Rebels. I Love Rebel Diaz. You are all so cool. I liked you way back when you recorded, "Which Side Are You On"?. Fabulous video. But your new videos, are totally, totally, totally Fabulous!

I was raised Union. In her day; my Mother, was an 11 year old, Suffragette!
Women's Suffrage In The United States

Women's Rights Movement in the U.S. Timeline

I Was Born: A Suffragette, A Democrat, And A Union Maid!




A little constructive criticism, often helps us all!
I've been following Governor Christie, since he was State Prosecutor. Everyone liked him then.

When he first got elected Governor; I left him a comment on nj.com and told him, that, NJ was a tough crowd and he better get ready. That; I hoped, he was up for the job, like that.

I'm from Hudson County, NJ. I understand Governor Christie. He isn't the worst Governor NJ has had.
It's just that the other ones were smart enough, to keep their mouths shut and didn't attract negative attention publicly.

If Christie wasn't a politician; people would  probably be saying, he's an ok guy.

After all, we all know and often admire some tough guys.

As Governor though, he's affecting the lives of many middle class and poor people who worked hard all their lives.

For instance State workers and their pensions.

Who are State Workers? Teachers, Firemen, Police, Anyone who works in a City or State Building. Like those Maintenance Folks, who keep all those bathrooms sparkling.

Pensions are not, a gift from the State. People pay into them.

Usually the employee pays half and the employer pays half.

At the bargaining table it's always understood; that the employer's half, is usually in lieu of accrued, extra benefits, (accumulated). Instead of  receiving such payments like raises, or added benefits; employees, are often offered, increases in, pension payments.

So in essence; a pension is actually,  entirely paid by the employee over the time of his/her employment. Pension plans, save the employer money in the long run.

Social and State Pensions
Many countries have created funds for their citizens and residents to provide income when they retire (or in some cases become disabled).

Typically this requires payments throughout the citizen's working life in order to qualify for benefits later on.

A basic State Pension is a "contribution based" benefit, and depends on an individual's contribution history.

Everybody complains about Christie.
They all had a chance to replace him, with that lovely lady, Barbara Buono (Democrat).  

But; NJ election turnout in 2014, was worse than ever.

In 2014, New Jersey saw 32.5 percent of eligible voters turned out to vote in the November general election. If you don't vote, you can't complain.
