I just saw in my Facebook page today about a 65 year old man marrying a 12 year old girl and they even had their wedding photo taken on the famous steps in downtown NY. This is ridiculous.
The PrintPlanet description of the The Lounge - "Come to the lounge to get away from shop talk. All things off-topic belong here."This Forum's name is Print Planet, What does your subject have to do with print?
I do not slam the USASlamming the USA again Gordo?
The subject is not sick. The laws, or lack thereof that allow for this to occur are sick. As are the people who participate. Don't shoot the messenger.Why would you even bring such a sick subject as this?
You can’t solve a problem if you are not aware that a problem exists. Awareness may mean that some forum members may petition their political representatives to address the issue in their state. If the "sick" topic is not brought up out in the open then you may end up with a related situation like the one that occurred in the UK: http://tinyurl.com/yc4yxqaqI saw your post in recent threads, when I said Forum I meant the umbrella PrintPlanet is under. Wiggle all you want PrintPlanet should focus on that subject and not subjects like this. Is this the best news you can come up with? How about the hero police officers in the Las Vegas event? How about High Schools that still teach printing skills, where have they gone? I stand by my comment Why would you bring a subject like this up?
How 'bout we talk about refusing to print the wedding invitations for a child marriage?This Forum's name is Print Planet, What does your subject have to do with print? Slamming the USA again Gordo? Why would you even bring such a sick subject as this?
There are enough problems in the world and the USA and now you bring up a sicko subject like this? Bring up World Peace man
I would just like to throw out that Indiana has passed a law about 2 years ago called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. It was all over the news because of it. But now Christians in Indiana can refuse the work without risk of being sued. Its a fine line.Just recently there was a heated argument whether a service provider should deny a job or nor, based on his/her moral disciplines. Not printing invitations for allowed marriages might get you into trouble if somebody get serious about state laws. I think Gordo is spot on about asking the help of local reps. Alas, I think most of the 'democratically elected' above local level are playing the game 'safe and cozy', they won't throw a wrench into the inner workings of the mainstream agenda. Which is very clearly: dismantle all local and personal freedom, impose total control over everybody, dilute and ruin the society by pushing false/fake values.
I agree that many cities and states have gone crazy with some of the laws. We hear stories of towns with laws against spitting, or chewing gum while walking backward. However, I think 5 laws is over simplifying and unrealistic. The inplant where I work actually prints the book that lists all of the crime processing codes for the county sherrif. I skim through it sometimes to see all of the crazy things. I haven't counted, but it's a good size book with small print, so at least several hundred laws. Most of the laws are sub categories of the 5 you listed. Various forms of theft, various forms of physical harm, etc. You are missing several critical categories like laws for vehicle operation (sub categories for cars, boats, motorcycles, etc), kidnapping, manufacturing/possession of illegal items (not just drugs, but weapons of mass destruction, child porn, etc), then you have things like disturbing the peace, forgery, and so forth. Unfortunately criminals are creative and keep coming up with ways to do bad stuff, so the government has to make a law against it so punishment can be applied accordingly.We need to scrap all the laws. About 5 laws is all we need in the USA.
1. Law against physically harming another person with varying degrees from slapping to murder.
2. Law against damaging property with degrees.
3. Law against Arson.
4. Law against Theft.
5. Law against Threatening.
We're operating under the shared agreement that child marriage harms children and thus, child marriage should involve the state because it harms children. And if you were talking about incest, a child of incest certainly has an dramatically increased chance of "harm" to be done to them in the form of increase propensity for birth defects & diseases which could warrant the involvment of the state.Whose business is it besides the two families? Marriage should NOT involve the state.
