They are trying this with Doctors in Florida and they have so that even if
malpractice charges against a doctor are dropped their name will appear on
the list! Jeez...its the new Soviet Union!

Florida is an example of a witch-burning state. For years, they have had a
list of possible child-abusers. While on the surface, this sounds
good--what's under the surface can be startling.

If I, as your next-door neighbor, decide I want to hurt you, I can call the
police and/or child support enforcement and say I saw you beating your kid.
As of that minute, your name is on a list from which you can never get off.
It doesn't matter if it's true or false. You've been reported. And, if you
should decide to run for office or start a child-care facility--Uh Ohh.

To possess ideas is to gather flowers; to
think, is to weave them into garlands.
I speak only for myself.
