“typical republicanism.
It sounds like they have enough votes to override his veto, so no real big deal right other than the showmanship.”

“If they push it forward. it is entirely possible that the Rushpublican legislature will play "party line" and not vote to override.”

“This is sad, but if its true that he was hitting his pregnant girlfriend and resisting arrest and fighting with cops, I'm not sure that the cops were out of line in tasering him and fighting back. It is horrible that he died though. If the cops did anything out of line they should be accountable, but at the same time remember why he was being "beat".”

Gale Burke on Apr 10, 2012 at 13:55:15

“There are too many stories like this today. It is sad. I wonder how many police officers were there? How many does it take to subdue a person. Not like he was on PCP.
I admit, I have not heard of this case until now so I don't know what other reports have said.
It is sad anytime someone is killed in police custody.”

Facebook Protection Amendment Voted Down In House

Commented Mar 28, 2012 at 17:38:58 in Politics

“The measure was to stop business from being allowed to ask for the FB passwords, in which no Republican voted for, and it was defeated - meaning businesses can keep asking for it. I think perhaps you maybe misread either the article or his comment?”

“Not even a close comparison. The argument that someone who drinks all the time and thus died from drinking vs someone who goes to a show and takes E (possibly even for the first time in their life) and ODs is somehow the same is not even close and I'm pretty sure that you knew that already.”

“its not likely that we really know since people dont usually actually buy straight MDMA, there are plenty of vairants out there including HBombs (herion based) and yes you are more likely to die from the cutting agent than the drug, but Im not convinced that the drug by itself is completely safe either.”

Debbie338 on Mar 27, 2012 at 10:25:28

“They don't die from the small amounts of heroin, either, unless they're allergic. They die mostly from snorting large amounts of coke at the same time.

The study I remember most came out about ten years ago, and it was commissioned by the government to prove how bad MDMA was. They made much of the results, because one monkey died during the study, but here's the catch: they gave monkeys the equivalent of a human being taking 400 mg every four hours over a 24 hour period and they gave it INTRAVENOUSLY, and yet only one monkey died! I thought that pretty well showed the opposite of what they were trying to show, as long as you understand that no real person would ever come close to taking amounts like that.”

“There is no heroin in E pills, please stop spreading that lie its annoying.”

“Yeah but the difference is vast and I think you know that already - a teenager or anyone for that matter can go to a show do E once and die from an OD, where as its very atypical for that to happen with alcohol.”

VanTroi on Mar 26, 2012 at 16:07:48

“No one dies from using it one time that's an extreme exaggeration . Most people who have died while using it actually died from water intoxication.”

“The sad part is that these are the people that the public want to vote in - and then wonder why nothing ever changes.

Why arent we electing people who have won nobel prizes for economics or science to head those departments? Why dont we elect people who actually have a high IQ score and could be considered "smart"?

Probably because the average american wants someone like them.”

Antipodeus on Mar 27, 2012 at 02:47:56

“Ahem -- I am loathe, as an ignorant foreigner, to point this out, but has it not occurred to you that you presently have as POTUS an obviously intelligent, very articulate, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize?

“People don't die from molly, either. There has never been a death from MDMA alone. It's always because of being used with something else, usually cocaine, which we KNOW can be fatal.”

“its funny you should mention that when the health care bill is in court this morning taking arguments about the same thing - having citizens underwrite the bills of others who cant or wont pay their own medical bills. Why would we ever have a society based on personal responsibility when people dont have to and arent forced to, and when they try and be forced to it ends up in court because they dont have the right to force us?”
