There has been some talk recently in regards to "jobs" for people with disabilities. I have heard some people say that the individuals with disabilities should not be complaining because they are being given opportunities.
To all of this, I say "baloney" individuals with disabilities have a right to be heard. Just because something sounds like a good idea on the surface, that does not mean that it is a good idea. If something is considered a bad choice, is that a choice at all? Is a job that pays significantly lower than minimum wage something to look forward to? I work with and talk to individuals every day and they would never consider having a job like this. If there is no work, than they just sit in a room and watch TV, it acts more like a "baby sitting service" I have also spoken with people who like the idea, not so much for the job itself, but for the social interaction. I am sure there are other social outlets available to these individuals..
Take note that again, the left is okay with breaking the law and doing dishonest things because things are too important. Someone has to stop Walker and the Republicans they feel!
It amazes and stuns me to think how long it took me to understand that hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is mostly caused by eating refined carbohydrates. When I would feel dizzy or lightheaded after a workout, my first impulse would be to grab a granola bar. The ten worst foods for you according to internet health sites are:

South Milwaukee's Brian and Erin Nau's art gallery and boutique, BeingNau, at 907 Milwaukee Avenue opened a couple of month ago with some interesting art, aromatic soaps, skin-care items and live music. Before long they plan to add open-mike poetry reading.
In the meantime, they're selling. Two major metal sculptures went this past week along with an intriguing yellow-tone photograph of an open road razoring across a desert toward a distant glowering mountain range.
