    You are of little help. You like the system? Then you have to help make it work.
    At the loss of income that would help support the family? I don't see that suffering financially to "help the system" as being all that important.

    If everyone thought like that there would be no jurors.

    Every system of required service has exemptions. I believe that if it were truly a hardship, then a person should be exempted.

    They do, I don't have a problem with that. A lot of folks just don't want to put up with the inconvenience.

    In my opinion, the reason we always have bad government is the same reason why people try to evade the responsibilty of serving on a jury, or voting. They don't accept the responsibilities that come with freedom, only taking what the 'system' will give them, and still thinking that it isn't enough. Most folks are just too lazy to think much on the subject of freedom, and how it was achieved and maintained, or how it can be lost. This lesson took a long time for this country to learn, and recent generations have done a piss poor job of passing these lessons on to the generation that followed them. That lesson will either be re-learned, the hard way, or we will give up our remaining freedoms and become just like all the other decadent nations of the world.

    Good point, Bisley. For instance, less than 1% of our population serves in the military these days. I'm all for some sort of mandatory "public service" commitment. If someone can't grow a pair and do a couple of years in the military, there's always all kinds of civilian-type jobs available. If the politicians think they can force us to buy health care insurance, why not create a few public service bedpan-emptying positions for the cowards to fill? That should drop the cost of government-provided cradle to grave care.

    Of course ANY employer that docks an employees pay because they are on jury duty should be publicly flogged. For those who work for the Federal Govt, we were kept on the clock, but had to turn any monies we recieved in connection with jury duty over to the Govt.
