We pay a lot of taxes. Our Government gets to use those taxes to supposedly help take care of us. It is supposed to build and maintain safe roads for us. Monitor and take care of our state’s abused children. Make sure that criminals on parol are actually being watched over so they don’t kill us in our sleep.
But our government doesn’t always do a good job. We find this out through tragic headlines. We find it out when people sue to hold the Government accountable. To prevent bad practices from continuing.
Our State Attorney General wants to limit lawsuits against the Government and its insurance companies. It wants to create a special class that is above the law. And it wants to be the only one in that class.
All the rest of us are responsible if we mess up. But the Government won’t be if new laws are passed.
This may save money in the short run. But what about the long haul. If we take away government checks and balances, then what kind of a monster will we be creating. What incentive will the government have to get things right – if they are above the law.
SCIAW Lauches Its New Site: New NonProfit Organization for Spinal Cord Injury Survivors & Supporters
The new nonprofit organization, the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Washington (SCIAW) is pleased to announce its launch of its new site, SCIAW.org. SCIAW.org provides resources for those surviving or supporting spinal cord injuries (SCI) with focus of those in Washington State. SCIAW’s parent organization is the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
In the fall of 2010, SKW partner Karen Koehler created SCIAW in association with Dr. Charles Bombardier, Ph.D, Project Director for the Northwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury System; Vivian Moise, MD, the Medical Adviser/Director for the SCI Program at St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Hospital (Spokane, WA); Anthony Choppa, M.Ed, Owner of OSC Vocational Systems, Inc.; and Jesse Magana, spinal cord injury advocate.
