Re: “Team McCain Dismisses Public Policy Polling Survey

Since the GOP thinks Obama is a Muslim who tried to enact Sharia law in the US, wouldn't his agenda failing be a good thing?

Re: “MMJ Opinion

Could you not rent some fencing to control access to an outdoor "medicated area" that wouldn't violate the terms of the liquor license?

Re: “What? You Mean Trickle Down Doesn't Work?

David W - 1 millionaire won't be as beneficial to the businesses you mentioned as much as if 1,000 people had an extra $10,000 to spread around.

The more people who have money, the more that gets spent. The economy relies on people earning and spending money.

When a significant majority of the wealth is owned by so few people it can't be spread as fast and the economy will stagnate. While some people can't afford an apartment there are billionaires with more mansions than they have family members.

Re: “It Could Cost You $58,000 For a Speeding Ticket (in Finland) (if You're Rich)

Not quite David W.

Its not stealing, its meting out a punishment that will have the same impact on them that it would on anyone else for the same offense.

And its not because they must have stolen it, its because they won't care if a financial punishment has a minimal impact on their life.

If I'm a millionaire getting fined a few hundred bucks for speeding I'll speed all fucking day long and pay the tickets and not care. How is that justice for the person who speeds once and is paying off minimum payments on a credit card for 2 years to get back on top from it?

They did the same crime, yet the punishment doesn't effect them equally. I don't understand how you could have read the article and not understand that.

Re: “Five Flowing Wells Students Arrested for Plotting to Kill Classmate

To the kids saying thy know the suspects and they are all talk and wouldn't actually do it:

Have you ever watched reporters interview neighbors of s serial killer? "He was so quiet" "he seemed so normal" "I can't believe he would be capable of something like that" are the typical things people say about serial killers. You don't know what's in someone else's mind.

Re: “ICE Refuses to Kill Deportation Order Against Rosa Robles Loreto; She's Been in Sanctuary at Church for 6 Months Now

Ironic that the GOP is all about "Christian" values (Bisbee boy sure does make that statement ironic), yet this deeply religious woman is not welcome here.
