Boomer’s Ramblings (Legality VS. Morality)

The questions, to all of those who dare to venture in here and glance around or maybe even read this, are these: what is the difference, why is there a difference, and how should we change it?

First of all let me state for the record that I have first hand knowledge that there is a difference.  When I went to court to have my spousal support stopped, maybe I should explain that.  I had originally agreed to pay my ex-wife spousal support so that she could keep the house that we bought together. The house was supposed to be an investment for the kids. When she passed on it was going to go to them so they could sell it, and they would have some money for what ever they needed.  Two years ago in January she stopped paying on the loan and in May they moved out. By the time I found out in August the loans were too far behind and the property went into default (which stays on my record for at least five years it could be seven I do not really remember which).  Back to court, I filed for stoppage of the spousal payments and the judge told me that because I did not state on the original documents why she was getting support that she still gets it. So therefore it is legal yet in my mind, and by the way in the mind of all my co-workers, friends, and most family members, it is not moral.

That story right there is why I feel, well, know that there is difference. I also know that it would take a lot of legal and moral debating to get it changed in the eyes of the law. Which by the way it seems, in this case, out weighs the thoughts  or feelings of the church. My ex is a god fearing church goer. I guess morals aren’t really taught in the church anymore.

Starting to get a little off track here, so anyways that is my take on the whole thing.  I may come up with more later this particular book “Versus” is more or less on the back burner. I do from time to time stir it up a little to make sure it doesn’t boil away.

Just in case anyone is interested, other topics include the following:

Opinion Vs Thought, Good Vs Great, Conception Vs Perception (this is a good one), Feeling Vs Emotion, Need Vs Want, Hope Vs Optimism.

I know that some of these subjects it is merely the spelling, however, I am hoping to spark some thought and optimistic that there are folks out there that would love to express there thoughtful opinions.


About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
