    College

    I have sponsored two young ladies to go to college there in the Philipinnes. Both were cam girls (I know scammers right?) Well one went for one semester then dropped out, but not before I had sent her tution for the next semester. The other young lady is in her first semester of her third year and soon will be starting her second semester. So I figure one out of two is not a bad average 50% considering I have never met either one except online. I know how hard it is for the average filipino to send their children to secondary school let alone college. I talk to her every week via interent to see how things are going. I'm by no means rich, and yes I'm married with four adult kids, and six grandchildren. Helped put my granddaughter through college and she graduated this year.Helped one grandson but he dropped out. Also my wife knows that I am doing this and doesn't approve or disapprove, saying it is up to me. Just hopeing that Ligaya can keep her focus and will continue until she graduates. Not all of us are ugly americans, ok maybe ugly but we still have compassion.
  3. This goes to show veterans of all wars are not really respected by many people. The Supreme Court is hearing the case of the father of the Marine killed in Afganistan of people picketing the funeral of the Marine. Sounds like the justices are trying to find a way to side with the father without hurting the 1st Amendment. Hope they do as it is not right or even humane to do this to someones family in this time of loss.
  4. This goes to show that some people do not respect the service of members of their communities. It seems that now that all WW1 veterans are gone it is ok to tear down a monument to their bravery.In another case the Supreme Court is now hearing the case of the Church picketing the funeral of servicemembers killed in action from Iraq and Afaganistan. Signs such as I'm glad the member is dead to more servicemembers should die there. The Court seems to be leaning toward the father of the Marine who was killed and funeral picketed. The are trying to balance the 1st Amendment rights against decency for victims rights. The signs the show that they are glad the servicemember is dead, signs saying they want more killed, etc. We all need to watch this Courts decision of the rights of privacy vs 1st Admendments rights. Should have a decision by spring.
