“The statistics say women hit men more then men hit women. However men do more damage and are more frequently convicted. I would like to live in a world where I am not hit by women, and they face some responsibility if they do so”
“why is there no "violence against men" act? or, why isn't this a "violence against people" act? are we still stuck in the past where we have to pretend that women are not men's equals and require special protections?”

“Men and women are equal when it comes to rights, intellectual capacity, etc. They are NOT equal in terms of strength. That will never change. That's why this is needed, because if man goes toe-to-toe with a women in regards to violence, the man will usually win.
Go look at the statistics of domestic violence. It's almost always men hitting on women. Statistics don't lie, so don't get into a huffy about it.”
“Actually if you understood Constitutional law at all, you'd know that SCOTUS is not permitted to issue advisory opinions and must wait until there is an actual case and controversy brought before it and for the issue to be ripe.
What should happen is the individual mandate should be found to be unconstitutional. Its a terrible overreach of government power that sets a very very bad precedent. If such turmoil would ensue that ACA would be impracticable, then it should be found to be inseverable and the entire law revoked. If it is found to be severable and turmoil would still ensue, then it is the duty of Congress to repeal it themselves.”

“You misunderstood my intent. ACA was challenged almost immediately by several states, but the slow working of the courts including SCOTUS allowed several aspects of the law to be applied, within these two years, thus making an overturn that much more difficult and devastating. SCOTUS should have been ready to hear the case within 3 months, not two years! Since ACA has been in effect for two years overturn is unlikely.”
“The reason why people are hating on this article is pretty simple. People come to huffingtonpost to make fun of republicans and pretend like democrats are these genius politicians who only do good. The whole site's an echo chamber for these opinions. People are mad because now you're making fun of their guy. hp is just as bad as fox news, it just slants in the opposite direction.”

“So, Republicans come here to make fun of themselves? And they pretend that Democrats are genius politicians who only do good?

“yes I see your point. HP is doing this to nudge the Pres further to the left just as Fox nudges Republican candidates further to the right.”

“saying god blesses us all is like saying harry potter gave us all a good luck potion. The sooner people stop believing in fictional deities the sooner we can stop stupid decisions made by those who believe in some ancient zombie wizard.”
“People that are really into charity often times get seriously offended when you ask them to think critically about their good deeds. Sometimes they are helping no one but their own sense of feeling good about themselves. Charity and helping out can be a great thing, but it needs guidance.
Change your facebook photo to blue if you want to support a popular revolution in another country. if you change it pink you will cure aids, breast cancer and violence against women and children will cease.”
“he actually did call the police. many media reports are leaving that out, but its a very very important fact. he did call the police. You don't do proper research before forming opinions. deal with it.”

“You are wrong! Paterno was in the AD's office discussing what McQueary had told him and the AD called the campus police. At no time did Paterno call or speak with the police!”
ptahian on Nov 10, 2011 at 23:17:13
“And you know that he called the police as a fact? How?”
“The media is glazing over the fact that not only did he contact the Athletic Director, HE CONTACTED THE POLICE!!! why are we not blaming the police instead of Joe Paterno????? I forget who's job is it to investigate crimes, the football team or the police?”
ljmck on Nov 10, 2011 at 22:40:46
“Why? Because it was the direct responsibility of Paterno and others in the program to protect the young men in their charge.
The failure of the police does not in any way excuse Paterno or anyone else who knew about this and continued to condone having Sandusky employed where he could prey upon young people.”
Pubdestroyer on Nov 10, 2011 at 22:28:15
“False. He contacted ONLY the department, not the police.”
Pamela Lewis on Nov 10, 2011 at 22:28:00
“I haven't seen one report claiming he called the police. If he had called the police himself, his superiors wouldn't be indicted for failing to do so.”
“People always point to European countries as an example of how the U.S. should be run. They think everyone should be entitled by law to 4-6 weeks paid vacation, a minimum wage of a living wage in the teens, free healthcare and such. They look at these countries and say, why not? THIS IS WHY NOT. Its a great thought but just not practical, you have to work hard to get by, that's just the way it is. We can't all be rich. These countries wouldn't even be able to attempt it without the US subsidizing the world's military and medicine invention by doing it ourselves.
What's worse is these Greeks think this is just temporary hardship, that once they've payed everything back (which they don't want to do, they just want to default), that things will eventually go back to that unsustainable high life! That's not how it works! You have to work hard to get anything. and not just kind of hard, really hard. Not months of vacation and high pay hard, actually way harder than they ever have before.”

“It's not the system of government, it's the people. The Greeks are just plain lazy. When will the rest of Europe just acknowledge that?”
“read my replies to the rest of the robots. i'm ok with paying a fair share of taxes for roads and other necessary programs. not down with paying for entitlements and imperialistic wars. i'm not convinced that you're not convinced that you're right, I think you just say you're open to abandoning your position to protect your view of yourself as openminded.”

“No, I'm actually prone to change. I grew up a left winger, then I became a righty when I was an undergraduate, then I switched back to the left. I'm mostly interested in economic efficiency rather than any particular political agenda.”
“i'm not out screaming because I dont like to waste my time. The bank bailouts worked, the government actually made money on the deal and all the banks have paid back their loans. I am pissed about the billions lost in Iraq and the flagrant abuse of military contracting. I'm also pissed about entitlements (the major cost in the budget besides defense)
Listen people, its ok to not adhere to party lines on everything. you don't have to parrot huffpo or fox news, there are other options. its called independent thought. try it sometime.”
“wow the roads argument. how original. do you think for yourself, or do you just do a search through huffpo articles and comments so they can tell you what your thoughts are.”
AussieEconomist on Oct 15, 2011 at 13:22:33
“That isn't actually a counter-argument. I'm happy to discuss the issues involved if you like. I'm not even convinced that I'm right, and I'll abandon my position if you can make a persuasive enough argument.”
“lets cut the fat then. I'm ok with taxes, just the smaller the better. everyone hear wants to tax the rich that are already paying half of everything. lets cut costs drastically. end the drug war, foreign imperialism and entitlement programs.”
“yes, i would agree that. i would also agree that providing checking services and the like costs the banks money so they are justified in charging debit card fees if they want, though i would rather go with the credit unions many of you are advocating.”
Minnesota Black on Oct 15, 2011 at 13:34:53
“If limiting what they could charge merchants for card swipes didn't cost them anything, then charging fees to consumers for using debit cards is just greed. You may think that greed is justified, but it's still greed.
And yeah, I'm hoping people go to credit unions in droves. All the lost customers won't cost the banks anything, either.”
