“I think you've explained the thinking of a lot of people with your comment -- and revealed how defective their reasoning is. Knox could be a raving schizophrenic with a story that does not fit any reality about anything -- and not be a murderer.
Basically, you have to believe people never confabulate or get very confused under intense interrogation - and you don't have to beat anyone up to intensely interrogate, -- to believe a mixed up story is strong evidence of guilt. It is not. They have strong and very specific false confessions all over the true crime world, and this one was so bad the cops won't give up the tapes they almost certainly made of it. You thinking is superficial, based on ignorant assumptions, and wrong.”
“Actually, the laws in the United States that regulate prisons and jails are quite different than they are abroad. Our laws limit work hours, mandate breaks and require proper feeding. Quite different than in China.”
“I'm happy that government assistance worked the way it was meant to in this instance. Congratulations and good luck!
I only have a problem with the abuse of food stamp programs. There are people shopping at my local grocery store with EBT cards who are driving new Mercedes! They are pregnant and can't afford the children they have. THAT is the problem with government assistance. Not the people who need it.
The system doen't need to be cut or reduced. It needs to be regulated and supervised better,”
“The BSA are, unfortunately, an out-dated institution. I was a scout over 40 years ago in New York and saw no bigotry. Today, the group is out of hand. Instead of moving forward they are going in the wrong direction. Too bad... they had so much to offer.”

I'm glad I work for myself.”

“No one says that you can not stand up for what you believe. The contract that the union negotiated with UPS however has provisions, agreed to by the union, that prohibit a work stoppage to stand up for what you believe.
If these people had done this after work and not conducted an illegal work stoppage, they would still have their jobs.”
