Legislators ‘need to stopÂ’ working for institutions

Dave Kohler, of Allentown, was abused by an ordained minister in the Jehovah’s Witnesses in November 1965. He was 9 years old. 
When Kohler was 17, his abuser told him to never talk about the abuse again. 
“So I obeyed and kept my mouth shut,” Kohler said. 
He’s been coming to Harrisburg for about five years to show his support for statute of limitations reform. “Individuals vote them in, and then they work for institutions,” Kohler said of the state legislators. “That needs to stop.”
If reform is passed that would allow Kohler the opportunity to sue his abuser, Kohler said he knows what he would do with any money he could collect.
“I will hopefully be able to afford therapy,” he said.

Therapy at the tutelage of Worldly mental health professionals has, in many cases, real and significant value.

My first wife Dale,  dead now since 1982, was born with Cystic Fibrosis, which is a horrible way to live, and a horrible way to die,  depended heavily on "therapy" to stay relatively functional ... but came to think that her therapist was the only solution to coping.

Perhaps he was.... perhaps not ... I never attended any sessions .. I was merely the chauffeur.

Different things work for different people, I suppose.

For me it was John Wayne Western Movies about characters that "went through hell", and shrugged it off.

That, and two years later, I bought a 1971 Corvette convertible with a 454 engine.

Worked for me!

I'm English and have no idea how American law works, or doesn't work. In fact i don't even know how UK law works or doesn't.

A few years ago, just before the Jimmy Savile scandal, I requested information about my time in 'Care' in the Children's Home.  Using the Data Protection Act i managed to get pages of info about my horrible time in 'care'. However most of it had been redacted, to the point where one page was just black. 

My next aim was to use the Freedom of Information Act to get information about the people that had worked in that 'Home' during the time i was there.  Oh dear, it was almost impossible. The procedure that i would have had to go through would have made it pointless,  because i could only read it in their files office, not copy it.

When the Jimmy Savile scandal started i stopped making enquiries as I realised i would be seen as just jumping on a 'sexual abuse' bandwagon. 

The Law of the land favours people with position and power.  It is not generally good for the 'working classes'. 

However it would be really good if these victims get justice, and yes, get compensation directly from the abuser.

@JOHN BUTLER American Laws are somewhat a mixed bag, there is some states that the abused are suppose to marry their abuser, and people wanting to make several things legal when to the eyes of the common "woke" man and woman, such is to not be made legal. On the other side of the spectrum, you have a divided America, one of the reasons why I am not a fan of politics.

Samuel Colt made everybody equal.

Not quite, a time will come when the division will be far greater. The world as a whole are of 2 factions, including America and whom they side with, while you have Russia and whom they side with.

As for the Americans, America is broken and divided and eventually it will reach a tipping point, for last time I mention people wanting to start a civil war of some sort and a list of other things.

That being said, the SJWs have been given a new name, NPCs which I find somewhat funny.

Politicians will continue to jab at each other's necks as we speech, as with those of the far left and far right, us neutrals just sit back an watch with a bag of popcorn in hand, for such things taking place is non of our business.

That's why Armalite made the AR-15 ... when distances to evil people will be far greater .. and need encouragement to KEEP that increased distance.

What did I miss?

As with the internet there is memes, we had the Ugandan Knuckles at the opening of 2018, Pepe the Frog and Kekistan Army, Logan/Jake Paul, the turning of a Super Mario villain into a female, and now we have the NPC. This term is in direct to the far left, as well as Social Justice Warriors, to which the left fins the term very dehumanizing whereas the left called people Nazis or Russian Bots, but the meme that originated from the far Right, the NPC, is very powerful and is triggering people left and right, even those in the media. Not only is the meme hilarious, but it adds truth to how those with a political view actually operate and react.

In a way, this new NPC meme to SJWs has blown up the internet faster than the other things mentioned.

The image you see here is a wojak turned into an NPC.
