“Veterans who need to work while in school have to struggle. In my case, it was tough handling engineering school and working 30 hours a week. My parents were not well off. Obviously those who have wealthy parents should do better. Unless they just goof off.”
“Most defense spending for planes and ships is a waste of money. We expect some members of Congress to oppose cuts, because this is how those clowns get elected. They bring defense contracts home. If we want to rule the world, we need forces that react to every crisis. If we ever (doubtful) want peace and harmony, we can really save money.”
“As it is, my COMCAST bill keeps going up every month, until I had my phone disconnected. Then COMCAST increased the price on my Internet connection.”

“We have Comcast Triple Play - we looked at discontinuing our land line, but it will cost us more each month to do so. We feel trapped, as the valley we live in doesn't receive satellite signals well enough to make that an option.”
“The criminal justice system in an oxymoron. Even though a person serves his time, he is penalized for life in not being able to get a decent job. For example, you can't get hired on jobs that require a secret clearance, let alone a top secret clearance. Even though you may have received probation, with a few months in jail, you are an ex-felon. Thus you are branded for life. "Ban the box" is a step in the right direction. We know many politicians and judges are dishonest, pedophiles, and generally undesirable; but they were not convicted. Good for them, right? Many self righteous Christians ought to get their own lives together before judging others.”
“The war on drugs is an oxymoron. If we bust all drug users, including actors, musicians, athletes, police and politicians, we'd need more prisons. The DEA is a budget buster. The worst drug is alcohol: people are killed by drunk drivers, not by someone on weed. Too bad there is no weed lobby.”
“Christians are masters of killing. They like wars. They stink. I left that horrible church and became a Buddhist. As far as money, it's all about money, isn't it? Who cares about God?”

“I would say that it takes more to being a Christian, or a Muslim or a Buddhist for that matter, than to just don the title.
>>it's all about money, isn't it?
It would appear this Pope disagrees.”

“That's funny. I left Buddhism of 20+ years for Christ--and Christ alone. Churches are run by people who are imperfect and make mistakes, misjudgments and misinterpretations. Jesus, however, was perfect. Follow Him and Him alone.
When I went from Lutheran to Buddhism, at first, I felt such freedom. Freedom from guilt. Freedom from the chains of FALSE Christianity. I didn't know it was false at the time. The church never led me to Christ. I never knew Him.
The enemy fuels his fight with these mistakes. He makes you think Buddhism is such a peaceful philosophy...and it can be. However, it's like putting a Bandaid on a wound. It doesn't fix or heal your soul. It doesn't bring TRUE peace. Only Jesus Christ does that. And ONLY Jesus does that when you put down the religiosity of many churches and seek GOD with a true heart...wanting to know Him.
When you find that, you've found heaven here on earth. Knowing God and having a personal relationship with Him is the ONLY way to find true joy, peace and salvation. :)”

“More speeches by politicians. When people can own guns, they have a right to shoot people, right?”

“Corte33 Do you own a gun lets say you do. Would you go out and shoot someone or more than one? I hope the answer is no. Now let us assume your answer was no. You would be in the 99% of the people in this country The 1% of the 300million are telling the 99% of the people that you cannot own a gun even tho the Constitution of the United States says you have a LEGAL right to own one. Does this compute with you. The liberals in this country are not addressing the real problem. they know where it is but they haven't the guts to say it. That goes for Obama, Pelosi, A ND THE REST OF THAT CREW ,”

“According to the NRA, yes.
But you should wear your white hat, and try to kill only people wearing black hats, or, of course, hoodies. Its always open season on hoodie wearers.”

“.... when GANG members own guns, they shoot people..... correct”
“Criminal Justice is an oxymoron. There's no justice, since after an inmate has done his time, he is discriminated against for the rest of his life. He can't get clearances, "background checks" make sure he's not hired. Considering the corruption running Congress (and our country), we have the wrong people being incarcerated.”

“Now if employers stop screening out ex-cons, life will get better. As long as employers (including the federal government) use background checks to discriminate against ex-cons, recidivism will still be too high.”

“We don't believe in rehabilitation here in the US now; if we ever did. We are a cash crop for Big Prison business. Disgusting but true. It's easier and easier to become arrested and placed in jail for years and ever so much harder to live a decent and honest life in the middle.”
