church tonight made me think about how DMAS is treating us

Prejudicial behaviour can progress, according to Allport, in five stages: (1) Anti-locution comprising such things malicious gossip, verbal putdowns and nasty jokes; (2) avoidance; (3) discrimination – when the object of the stereotype is excluded from certain rights; (4) physical attack; (5) extermination.

they preached on this...  all I could think about is how DMAS is doing this to us and ultimately trying to exterminate us via taking away the only low cost service that was actually useful...  but DMAS puts us down by pretending we just need more education about EVV (nope that isn't the problem)  then they are avoiding us by expecting us to stay home all day to use a landline to log in and out...   then they are discriminating against us...  wouldn't it be cool if they were making drug addicts track their every location instead of us the disabled?   then this is a physical attack because you are taking away our support … and ultimately this will cause us to die earlier because many of us will end up in nursing homes where we will be exterminated...     so DMAS meets all staged of prejudicial behavior by this one regulation...

least you could do is stop telling lies about the cost of exempting live ins and exempt them
