Another Dark Little Corner

Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.

There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought.

Federalism & Feminism  
Federalism & Feminism
Back in The Good Old Days (e.g. 1850s), even a married women's own earnings became her husband's. It helped trap wives in almost intolerable situations & kept suffering families under the control of sometimes bad, greedy, or incompetent men. Even after some improvements in these laws (e.g. 1950s), a wife's dependence could be used as a psychological & financial weapon.

With this government's record of withdrawing funds from people who criticise it, or just don't do exactly what they say, it's quite clear why States would prefer to keep some independent funding.

Already it has made financial threats not just to community groups and citizens who assert their responsibility to represent what they think will improve our country - or prevent harm to it - but also to State Governments with differing opinions to it.
