About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

      Don’t think so. But I have no idea what the governments role was. I have no reason to believe they had any concern. Families were intended to care for their own; the church was involved in caring for those whose who did not have family support. That’s the reason deacons were chosen – to care for the widows who were having some conflict among themselves and the disciples needed help to “serve the widows” Neither Capitalism nor Socialism can ensure that everyone has a job. If one wants a job assigned to him, Socialism would do that, I think. However, Capitalism is doing quite well on employment in the USA right now. Thanks for throwing questions at me. Extends my thinking. 😀

  4. Thanks for the fun, and a good review. I’m not sure “beggar” would count as employment, but I do notice that Bartimaeus was not expecting the government to support him, via tax payers. He was appealing to the compassion of VOLUNTARY givers. 😉
