Is It Time To Abolish Protective Services And Social Services As Government Agencies?

The recent shootings where the shooters had mental struggles and were known to authorities yet did not receive the help and support  they needed begs the question of how can we as a society address this issue.

It is not that we need more Social services workers/ Protective Service workers… but fewer– who have the skill level and emotional makeup/stability needed to recognize the problem and offer options to the citizens in trouble.

If Social services is working, the problem should get better for the individual in question after 2 weeks of help, if the problem gets worse that is a sure sign that the worker is aggravating the situation.

The techniques of screaming, threatening, stalking, inciting violence by pitting relatives against each other, taking sides in a domestic dispute, denying citizen’s their right to appeal an assessment and denying due process to citizens- should be outlawed from the repertoire of actions that government workers are allowed to take.

Better yet privatize the counseling that would truly help citizens by letting an org such as Catholic Charities  take over this area.

Using techniques that abusers use only escalates a domestic dispute.

In my opinion- Peace

Know Your Freedoms Demand Your Liberties

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Liberty must at all hazards be supported.

We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”

– John Adams, 1765


The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective,

may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.

– James MadisonFederalist 47, 1788


One of the most essential branches of English liberty is the freedom of one’s house. A man’s house is his castle.

– James Otis, on the Writs of Assistance, 1761


Above Quotes VIA The Bill Of Rights Institute

It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.
-Benjamin Franklin

War is when the government tells you who the bad guy is.
Revolution is when you decide that for yourself.

( take a look at what your watching on TV…- search for ideas and fill your mind with them!)


What can I say but thanks Ben, I hope one day to leave a quote as quotable as yours!

Write a quote- table thought today!!

Me Too…Only I Did A Hepburn and Davis…

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Yes, I too have a few stories to tell but- I took matters into my own hands and respectively told the guy to buzz off in no uncertain terms and in the other instance landed my arm between his shoulder blades – the only time I ever hit anyone, it happened in public at The Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

One guy in the crowd said “aw he was just joking.”

another guy said ” Good for you. he deserved it.”

The details are not important except for the fact that I was 19 and 26 respectively at the time –

The question to ask is what would have Bette Davis or Katheran Hepburn don– if asked to watch something —to get a job…

I am not talking about rape or physical assault -I am talking about being somewhere and having to deal with a jerk- What would Susan B. Anthony do?  

I am talking about the fact that men are not more powerful than women– we are equal that is what the feminists of the past, taught me.

Big Dipper, Little Dipper

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog ”

They sit next to one another
sparkling in your eye
as you glance into the sky
each night
they beckon
pouring liquid ideas and inspirations
into your heart
look up -and count the constellations
your daily consternations.
