Years ago a neighbor of mine got a new puppy for Easter. I thought the thing was one of the bunniesRead More destroying my vegetable garden. So add to this list "shot for looking like a rabbit" and please make sure you tell your neighbors you just got a new puppy. Easter has never been the same for either of us. Very sad.

I served on a jury for an assault involving biting that left a permanent scar on the victims hand.Read More It wasn't just a bite but a ripping. This 'bleeding heart liberal' voted for conviction and led the jury to see this as egregious and requiring that we do convict. That's the price of being an adult human being, to do the hard thing when necessary.

Ridiculous. People need to read the book I had to read for my MSW program at the University of IowaRead More School of Social Work, "The Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Prison." Matt Taibbi wrote an update (as wealth inequity and white-collar crime continue unabated and unconsequented) called "The Divide," which says much the same thing, and I'm anxious to read it. Wall Street CEOs can still millions and billions of dollars and not one of them goes to prison. In fact, they're laughing all the way to the bank. Yet this poor schmuck gets a free 89-cent refill and it costs him hundreds of dollars. Maybe things will have to get worse before people wake up and smell the coffee!

Why have the drink fountain accessible to patrons if they aren't allowed to refill? Why not fillRead More the drink behind the counter so there is no confusion? You typically put the fountain out in front of the counter and allow patrons to fill their own cups when there are free refills. This incident is arguably entrapment.

Yes, cb, I think they could come up with some other catchy names for various crack-downs on the taxRead More paying public. How about "Click-it-or-Ticket Week" or "Text Week" or "No-Right-On- Red Week" or "PBA Week" etc,etc. This way you could stay home the week of your biggest weakness.
Bryan Rivera April 18, 2014 at 07:33 am
cb, maybe they should put speed cameras on every road and ticket everyone that drives 1 mile perRead More hour over the speed limit. Maybe they should take it a step further and monitor every single vehicle for location and speed and store it so they can find patterns in everyone's behavior and ticket even more efficiently. All of that would be completely free of charge, of course, because it doesn't cost anything to constantly police roadways.

We need bomb-sniffing police dogs or military dogs. We also need to make the FBI accountable forRead More their failure to follow up on Russian warnings that Tamerlan Tsarnaeyev was being radicalized. The real jihadist in the family was the Tsarnaeyev's brothers' mother. The Russians knew that but didn't send the video proving it to the FBI. Even so, they told the FBI enough that they should have been on their trail, and the FBI blew it. And why weren't they on top of the former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan who shot to death three non-Jews in an anti-semitic attempt to kill Jews in Overland Park? Why do we allow so much surveillance of citizens when the results are so disappointing? It's not like the FBI is getting the job done. They miss a lot of really big, obvious targets.

Another concept is that we could adopt an EDUCATED VOTER MODEL. It would again require some kind ofRead More computerized voting procedure. Here's how it might work. You log in to vote and authenticate yourself (as I suggested in my comment above) on your Authenticated Voter Account. Before you may vote, you are presented with 10 randomized questions (from a pool of thousands of questions) regarding BASIC concepts of how the U.S. Government works and is formed. You need to get a 70% (7 out of 10 correct) to vote. Now, while many would rabidly attack that idea, and while it is only being offered to make a point, it is worth noting that foreigners applying for U.S. Citizenship must learn these concepts and pass tests to prove they understand them and that these concepts are allegedly taught in our public schools.

New York Patriot - I accept that challenge. Stereotypically, your college graduates are moreRead More liberal. Your less educated voters are more ignorant. So I will accept that as making for a more liberal voting populace. :)

So far the only complaint I've heard is about how terrible Reagan is. I really hate to tell you butRead More the so called War on Drugs, whether titled that or not, has been going on for a long time before Reagan or Nixon ever came into office. And the jackass party hasn't been behind in enforcing it either. Oh, Eric WithHolder claims he doesn't want to prosecute marijuana offenses - what the hell is the DEA doing here? And maybe you can tell me who has produced the drugs which, along with education about safe practices, has defeated or brought the AIDS problem under control? No, it's not the labor unions of America, Timothy Leary, or little old Madame Curie in her kitchen lab.

To clarify before someone jumps - the major drug control legislation did come about in 1970 as aRead More reaction to the widespread (both real and perceived) use and abuse of recreational drugs. But opiates were banned from importation, sale and manufacture in 1924 (other than that for medical purposes - morphine is an opiate and a pain reliever which if not administered correctly can and does result in dependency.

Hi there Etaoin, I am equally glad that I no longer work there. I now have a wonderful career inRead More a professional and non-discriminatory workplace. Working at that school was by far the worst professional experience of my career. Most teachers were unqualified, miserable, and jaded educators who spent more time inflating grades and complaining (justifiably so) about the abusive and non-supportive administration than they did investing in their students' academic growth. However, there are some educators there who are exceptional and very dedicated. Sadly, they are a very small minority. It also doesn't hurt that I now make more than twice what I did as a teacher. I also now have comprehensive health-care, a pension fund, as well as paid vacation and sick days. But most importantly, I am treated with the respect that every human being deserves. Although I do miss the small minority of wonderful students whom I had the honor of teaching. (They too were overjoyed to leave. They were no fools.)

Blind Justice never worked at St.Anthonys. "and those who are not practitioners of an outdatedRead More and conservative Catholic religion are treated as inferior." Is a dead giveaway. Her grammar is atrocious. She is a progressive, male hating, religion hating angry muskrat who is using this controversy to bloviate her disdain for mainstream society. If she feels that way about the Catholic faith, why did she work there in the first place? What did she expect?
