“Uh, HEY YOUNG PEOPLE. Hitchhiking in America is NEVER a safe or remotely smart thing to do, ever. Hitchhiking in America is not "ride sharing or carpooling". If you can't get a ride, DO NOT accept a ride from a stranger, EVER. period.”

“I was walking my dog at 5:00 am and then this dude with a creepy van asked me for directions, because of my fear I didnt go anywhere close to him. Maybe sometimes fear is a good thing?”
“I hope that future generations in our society will not deem same sex relationships as anything other than a normal human existence. When that day comes, the shame that can cause horrible emotional response, will cease to exist. One day.”

“What a headline. "Everyone" was NOT mad for their wins. MOST were saddened by Madonna's first real appearance in very bad plastic surgery facial attire, otherwise, the music awards themselves were ALL as should have been.”
“One of the biggest problems is that those who have not suffered as a child by the evil hands of parent, often believe that there need be a "witness" at all to make it true. Shame on people who believe that a child would simply choose to have such a life & they are not credible witnesses on their own.”

“And another big problem is someone who's willing to believe the words of a celebrity as being 100% true, when so many of the exaggerate and outright lie.
There's also a problem that some of us who suffered abuse as a child realize the children are sometimes coached to exaggerate or lie, some people's memories aren't all that accurate. Oh, and let's not forget the meaning of the word "heinous." Ms. Blige said her father abused her mother. She didn't say "Me" or "Us," she said "Her." He may not have abused Ms. Blige personally, and that would make your use of "heinous" hyperbole.
And then there's the simple issue that I you didn't see it yourself, it's hearsay.”
“This is about levels of economic mobility. Its in a imperfect world we live in but we have it much, much better than many people on this earth, hands down. That's just my worthless opinion. (p.s. I know all about hungry)”
“This is HORRIBLE. I assure you that there were GRAVE problems in the juvenile corrections when ran by the States pre 90's, also. It was horrific. It was worse. This is a social and racial atrocity that the people must stand on for correction in society, period.”
“The American Dream is dead is only you seek economic gain. My great grandparents had 11 children in a dugout after settling in the OK Land Run. My 32 cousins and I are living a prosperous life with our 100+ children to date. This is so much more than those two courageous people could have ever dreamed of. Count your blessings. The American Dream is very much realized and always possible.”

“Most people who are desperately POOR seek economic gain! You might not be rich but you've got everything you need, obviously. Many people don't have FOOD to feed their kids! That doesn't sound like a dream to me!”
“I do have an answer. The answer is 0. However, if I theorized that there was one innocent man EVER wrongfully executed, I would then also stand by my support of the death penalty. Should you have ever been a victim of a violent crime or have loved someone lost to violent crime, I assure you that a point simply does not "remain".”

“Johnny Garrett of Texas was executed February, 1992, for allegedly raping and murdering a nun. In March, 2004, cold-case DNA testing identified Leoncio Rueda as the rapist and murderer of another elderly victim killed four months prior.Immediately following the nun's murder, prosecutors and police were certain the two cases were committed by the same assailant.In both cases, black curly head hairs were found on the victims, linked to Rueda. Previously unidentified fingerprints in the nun's room were matched to Rueda. The flawed case is explored in a 2008 documentary entitled The Last Word.
Jesse Tafero was convicted of murder and executed via electric chair May, 1990, in the state of Florida for the murders of two Florida Highway Patrol officers. The conviction of a co-defendant was overturned in 1992 after a recreation of the crime scene indicated a third person had committed the murders.
One minute's research.
It is bad form to state facts that you do not know to be true.
I have been a victim of extremely violent crime a number of times.. I have investigated and supported the families of many murders. NONE of them spoke of revenge or execution. The word they ALL used was justice.”
“Seems like they could have saved a lot of wasted food and bad press by just slapping on a .00001 cent sticker saying "also contains soy protein and dried soy sauce". Hey, then give it all to food banks, not throw it away. Shameful waste.”
“The argument seems a bit odd to me. Ford and Bank America both can definitely afford to cut my payments down & afford me to eat better and get health care.
But, it was my choice to do business with them. Why not easier boycott McDonalds as a bad choice for consumption, labor practices, etc ?”
“Really ? You started so well and then your ending blew it all. I am as old as dirt and I assure you that with age comes wisdom. In the wisdom of living life, please know that a man that leaves his family is not a man of dedication and sacrifice that would be desired for a test of humanity's future existence. That has been and always will be, a man lacking great character and inner strength. I hope that as you grow older, you never learn of this first hand. Please never consider dating a man that think's this article is "cool". It's a good little "test" for you to use while picking your life mate.”
“I would think that this mission will introduce the survival of our humanity well into the future. I believe the true final choices will be made on the very best genetics we can summarily establish. Unless he a genius on some level we haven't heard about and since we won't be needing any parents that abandon their families for the survival of mankind, this guy has no chance of taking that trip in reality. How arrogant of him. I feel badly for his kids. They'll always know his true character now, even though he won't make it to the South Pole, much less, Mars.”
