“Last I heard businesses exist to make a profit, so if this person asked them to stop patronizing their business just because they're gay, there has to be some strong emotions behind that. its also not much different then someone seeing a black couple and asking them to leave.”

“Well based on what I saw in his letter I would say it is quite different than refusing service to someone because they are black.
Ignorance or bad manners, or bad judgment are all at play here. But NOT hate.”
“much worse than the skinny models though, I dont know why people are trying to equivocate the two.. its easier to gain weight than lose weight, the ultra skinny models just need to gain 10-20lbs to be the ideal weight, these morbidly obese people are going to need years of dieting and/or perhaps gastric bypass surgery to get to a normal weight, and may have already suffered some of the consequences of being that obese.”
“This is not just simply "obese", these are super morbidly obese women who will probably die in their 40s or 50s.. I actually like girls with some meat on their bones, chubby girls are more attractive to me than skinny girls, but this is simply way too far over the line and I don't find a single one of them attractive in the slightest.”
“Show me this source you have that says she just left the guns laying around?
Also, what difference would that have made? Last I heard he murdered her, meaning if they were locked he could've then just taken her keys and opened said locks, and had the guns just as easily as if they had been laying around.”

“The difference is they were obtained by the shooter through violence period! Which by all means puts your gun control issue to waste and proves if they want them they can get them. If we ( gun owners ) are not allowed to keep what we have legally, we are screwed because the violent offenders will get them no matter what leaving us to be victims with NO recourse!! make sense??”
“you're simply wrong and have it backwards. regulate the tools that kill and people find new and more efficient tools to kill with. Tell me how many people Adam Lanza killed with a gun compared to how many the Unabomber killed without using a single gun? Go on, i'll wait.
Restricting or banning guns stops NOTHING, you're naive or just promoting a political agenda if you think otherwise. If a crazy person wants to kill people they will find a way, unless they're stopped ahead of time, hence treatment of mental illness.”

“pssseudocide, ok tell me this there were 148 people mostly kids teens killed every mth in la every month, 148 per mth, in chicago 50 or so last satursday, the drive bys got a 6 yr old in stomache 2 men, 8 more a little later jn fact the ambulances were lined up in a period of30 mins this total goes on every nite every day and the figures blow me away, are all thsese teens mentally ill? full of hate or have they become so tired of living in the fashion they have lived , that they just feel the need to kill thsese gands drive bys kill every mth but no one has adressed this issue not once , this killing has been going i=on forever and imsure some child will be killed this sat too is it the fact these kids dont matter as much as these recent killings? i do wish someone would remark, as this issue is overlooked i dont know the numbers of ny miami but im sure its as bad why isnt /hasnt tiis been addressed? i feel badly for the recent events but confused that no one seems to care about the wasted lives of these kids that are not meant to grow up no one will answer me on this subject and i wonder why ?”

“If restricting or banning guns stop nothing because some people will still break the law why do we have any laws at all? Why is driving drunk a crime, if drunk people are just going to break the law? Why is shoplifting a crime, if thieves are still going to steal?
Gun regulations won't prevent all gun violence (they're GUNS, after all); but they certainly can decrease the frequency and severity of the violence.”
“and how does the fault lie with guns? why are mentally unstable people roaming untreated? Why are they allowed to buy cars? they could flip out and run people over.. why can mentally unstable people buy household chemicals at walmart and make a bomb with a recipe off the internet? better ban those products too, right?
just admit you have an agenda against guns here and nothing else.. and then you have to concede that banning guns won't make the crazy people disappear, or stop them from doing terrible things by other means. The Unabomber killed a hell of a lot more people without using guns.”
“there's a chance he was hacked and someone posted those things as a prank.. I say this because the expression "finna" is a bastardization of "fixin ta" which is a bastardization of "fixing to" which is a bastardization of "intending to". Long story short, last I knew it was an expression used exclusively by blacks. The person in question doesnt look like someone who would be tweeting in ebonic slang.. looks like a emo hipster type and someone said he had a peace sign tattoo? Would be sad if Huffpost just ruined this guy's life by reporting him as a would-be school shooter if someone else pranked him.”

“I think its despicable to take a tragedy and turn it political about gun control.. this did not happen because guns exist, this did not happen because people can legally buy guns, this happened because these two people have serious mental illness and wanted to murder people. if they had driven their cars through the school's playground and ran over 20 kids would you be talking about banning cars? I don't think so.
If they didnt use guns they could've used something else like repeating crossbows and still killed a lot of people. Stop trying to use this as an excuse to jumpstart a political bandwagon.. people who commit crimes with guns don't often get them legally anyway, this happened because of untreated mental illness, not because guns exist.”

I agree. I think it's despicable that each time another of these mass murders occurs there's a group of my fellow citizens who feel morally superior by not talking about a very real problem? Will the families suffer any less because you don't wish to enter into an adult discussion? When should we talk about it? Tomorrow? Monday?
And did I miss something, Pseudocide? Has there been a rash of children being mowed down on their playgrounds with automobiles? Has the media missed carnage committed with crossbows?

“WRONG, Pseudocide. This is a tragedy and it is directly caused by the politics of the NRA (like buying every republican legislator in the country). And semi-automatic weapons cause a lot more death than a crossbow. Please don't use such a specious argument.
It is time to ban assault weapons. It is time to ban automatic rifles. It is time to disband the NRA and take control back from these venal, base, inhumane people (a/k/a the leadership of the NRA).”

“i'm glad they mentioned the fact that we need fat, instead of demonizing it entirely. there is nothing wrong with (non-trans) dietary fat, monounsatured fats are essential for good health, even saturated fat is useful to our bodies in moderation for optimal hormonal production and other bodily functions, a low-fat diet is not ideal.”
libwingoflibwing on Apr 19, 2012 at 14:16:20
“But you can get all the healthy fats you need by eating whole foods.
It's not necessary to eat foods with added fats, which fats were made by taking whole foods like corn, olives, peanuts, coconuts, sesame seeds or milk and then subtracting most of the food until all you have left is just the fat. Instead if you eat a healthy balanced diet of whole foods you'll get all the fat you need and not imbibe high calorie foods constantly.
People who are already healthy and fit may not need to cut added fats out of their diet. But those of us who struggle with obesity and the issues that come with it might find getting our fats through whole foods a way to get healthy and fit.”

“Oh, the human body can form bruises after death now..? And how do you know he didnt hit him with his ice tea can? or kick him? or that the funeral director could be lying? face it, you've already picked your side in this story and you're defending that side no matter what evidence comes out. I don't have a side, I think it very well could still play out that zimmerman was in the wrong, but unlike you i'm waiting until the full facts are out to decide that.”
Aramaki on Mar 31, 2012 at 11:27:32
“No the human body forms the bruises before death, you du.mba.s5, and then because of the death, the bruises don't heal up.
And we know he didn't hit him with the ice tea can or kick him because you're the first person coming up with that ridiculouse theory.
None of the other people Zimmerman has purpotedly spoken to - his friend Oliver, his brother or his father - have so far mentioned in any of their interviews anything about Martin hitting him with a ice tea can - which would have left a deeper and more visible bruise than a hit with an naked fist - or even kicking him.
You claim not to have a side but then proceed to make the most ludicrous argument in trying to portray Martin the unarmed teenager as the aggressor and Zmmerman the armed pursuant as the victim.
I think we all know what side you clearly are on in this case.
Next time try not insuIting our intelligence”
Bashir N Hood on Mar 31, 2012 at 09:37:48

BillForObama on Mar 31, 2012 at 06:30:10
“You have picked a side, too. But, you are not winning the argument.”
“He wouldnt have bruises from the confrontation even if he was struck, because he died shortly after, bruises take time to form and they don't form when you're dead. Also a funeral director hired by the Martin family is not a neutral entity, he is pushing their agenda.”

“Your statement is not conclusive. You are also not taking into consideration that if you beat someone with your hands there presumably would be more than just bruises. scraps, small tissue cuts, etc.
Another insinuation you made was to call the funeral director a liar. He looks to be over 50, presumably doing this work for years. Why would he lie and risk his good name and professionaly reputation?

Kalikat on Mar 31, 2012 at 06:20:54
“I beg to differ. If you have ever ever ever seen any of the real shows on TV about the evidence gathered after a crime you would know that bruises can form days after an attack. The real shows show how this has helped capture many a criminal. And if the funeral director said there were no bruises days after the so called fight he is probably correct.”

“They treat injuries on the scene before bringing people in.. so you really can't tell from a grainy camera footage whether he had injuries, any blood was cleaned up before that footage, plus one of the cops checks the back of his head implying he had some sort of injury.
