Finally, that dream came to pass that I'd had when a child. Man, you ever go telling people you've had a dream of yourself in the future when your a kid, you take a hit to the cred.

btw, can tell you of mission take a liar by the vow. supposed to help with moral fiber of the nation. tasked to christians 'cause they had the directive to marry based on the explanation of Adam and Eve. supposed to stick to the vow and witness strategy per statute, and just let 'em lie. figuring how to better the person is mandated, however style and content is discretionary.

ImageA social identity is the portion of an individual's self-concept derived from perceived membership in a relevant social group. The practice of favoritism based on relationships and connections - rather than someone who demonstrates top credentials and well-suited experience – ultimately results in vastly inferior government service to the public. ... termed crony capitalism, and is an ethical breach of the principles of the market economy; in advanced economies, crony capitalism is a breach of market regulations ... Consequently, there is an impetus upon the legislative branch of a government to ensure enforcement of the legal code capable of addressing and redressing private party manipulation of the economy by the involved businessmen and their government cronies. The economic and social costs of cronyism are paid by society. Those costs are in the form of reduced business opportunity for the majority of the population, reduced competition in the market place, inflated consumer goods prices, decreased economic performance, inefficient business investment cycles, reduced motivation in affected organizations, and the diminution of economically productive activity. A practical cost of cronyism manifests in the poor workmanship of public and private community projects. Cronyism is self-perpetuating; cronyism then begets a culture of cronyism. This interaction has been researched by many psychologists and linked to many theories related to group conflict and prejudice. This can only be apprehended by a comprehensive, effective, and enforced legal code, with empowered government agencies which can effect prosecutions in the courts.

A granfalloon, in the fictional religion of Bokononism (created by Kurt Vonnegut in his 1963 novel Cat's Cradle), is defined as a "false karass." That is, it is a group of people who outwardly choose or claim to have a shared identity or purpose, but whose mutual association is actually meaningless.

The parallel is that the three branches of government (legislative, executive, judicial) exist largely independent of each other, with their own prerogatives, domains of activity, and exercises of control over each other.
The legislative body has control of the executive finances, and has judiciary powers, it also has control of the way the judiciary works.
The judiciary often has control of laws not being contradictory to the constitution or other laws and it has the power to correct and control the way the executive body exercises its powers (to execute the law)


Imageyou're not cool with judiciary dabbling in statute?

The omission bias is an alleged type of cognitive bias. It is the tendency to judge harmful actions as worse, or less moral than equally harmful omissions (inactions).
