QUESTION: My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: California and ssdi/medicare

question / pregunta: 

My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: California.

Can SSI/Medicare/Medical/Hud Section 8 - look for repayments of benefits paid to date, when I am no longer elegible for benefits going forward?

At this time I have no outstanding debt/or balances owed to any of the above parties as far as I am aware.

If I now purchase property with the help of a low intersest loan from my parents can they attach this asset/mortgage?

I have no savings to date and would like to start saving now? Is any money I now try to save subject to debt repayment/collection in the future. Are benefits paid to date viewd as debt?

I am currently receiving Medicare & Medical and anticipate that this will be cut off shortly due to my income level now. (So far I do not have an alternate means of medical benefits, but that is a whole other issue).

For the past 10 years I have been permamently disabled and received SSI Payments until last year.

I have started back to work

I am currently working part-time and my income is about $30,000 pa.

I am renting an apartment and receive Section 8 co-payments to date, but am at the cut -off threshold.

I am still partially disabled but want to continue working and supporting myself.

I would like to buy an apartment/condo, since my current rent exceeds what my payments would be on a purchase.
I would also like to have the savings vehicle and security of
owning a property for my retirement.

QUESTION: Dubious Jefferson quote by U.S. Senator Jim DeMint

question / pregunta: 

Sen. DeMint wrote an article for RealClearPolitics recently that contained this alleged quote from Thomas Jefferson. It sounds plausible but the language seems unnatural for Jefferson. Perhaps it is paraphrased but I'd like to know for sure.

Since the dawn of our nation, Americans have resisted government control over their daily lives. Unlike Europeans who have mortgaged their futures in the name of nationalized health care, we have an innate distrust of big government schemes. We have seen time and time again that the greatness of our nation comes from its people, not from the government. Perhaps most importantly, we understand, as Thomas Jefferson understood, that "Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have." Jefferson went on to explain that "the course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases."

QUESTION: biographical information

I cannot find the dates of birth for Paul Collier (author of The Bottom Billion) or William Easterly (author of The White Man's Burden). Can you please help me find them?

QUESTION: Alternative subject thesauri

question / pregunta: 

I'm not sure if this is an appropriate "Radical Reference" question but I'll give it a try. I'm currently cataloguing a zine collection for the Anchor Archive Zine Library in Halifax. Each zine record has a broad category plus multiple subject terms/keywords describing the content. Assigning subject terms to each zine is challenging, and I think it would be a lot easier if I had a thesaurus of subject terms to refer to, such as Library of Congress Subject Headings but for collections of alternative media. I've tried looking up online catalogues for other zine libraries and alternative bookstores for lists of subject headings, but I haven't found anything yet. Most don't seem to index their content by subject, which is probably smart considering how time consuming it is. I've also posted a message on the Zine Librarians Yahoo Group listserv but I didn't get many responses. Do you have any other suggestions of where I could find alternative thesauri, for alternative media in general or in specific subject areas, such as feminism and anarchism? I would really appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks!

QUESTION: name of case challenging the 1913 Muncy Act

question / pregunta: 

In or around 1966, Jane Daniel, a convicted robber, was sentenced to one to four years. One month later, her sentence was extended to 3.5 to 10 years, as stipulated by the 1913 Muncy Act (requiring judges to give women an indeterminate sentence if convicted of a crime punishable by more than one year). Had Jane Daniel been a male, the judge would have been allowed to give ‘him’ the one-to-four-year sentence.

The Superior Court of PA denied that this was an infringement of her rights, stating that men’s and women’s inherent physical and psychological differences justified differential treatment.

where would I find the full name and citation of the Superior Court decision? (There was a Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision later, but I'm looking for the Superior Court decision)
