“that was my point. i said "yes, he was nice", as are others who gave. my comment was directed at those who commented about him being a one percenter(the one percent who are super rich) and trying to make it political.”

“it was nice of him yes, but people who gave her just a few dollars gave more than ty warner. 20,000 dollars from a BILLIONAIR is way less than a dollar from an average income person. so why is everyone going nuts over a 1 percenter?”

“i understand where your comimg from. but one thing at a time. for decades, when research studies both physical and social were released and carved in stone, they were always done on men and rarely included women. novels, manuals, magazine articles, art and comedy were almost always directed at men,or men were the targeted audience. as a woman i was so tired of reading "when your wife this or your wife that". it sometimes still is like that. so for articles to include same sex marriages when speaking of marriage in general will probably take awhile. but i kow how is to feel invisible. things are changing though. it takes time.”

“really? more people die from owning dogs? how so? just curious, please explain.”

trweste144 on Jul 16, 2012 at 22:58:18

“Mostly people die from buying dangerous breeds and not knowing how to handle them; the dog snaps unexpectedly, etc.  Yet, more people probably trip over their shih tzu and tumble down the stairs to their doom than die of shark attacks (albeit I have no real data I'm going off for that).  I once did hear the factoid, that in one given year, more vending machines fell on folks and smushed them (4?) then shark attacks killed people (0).  Whichever of those two things claimed more lives over the aeons (I'll go with sharks as they been at it longer), whatever is the exception or the rule, freak accidents happen.  Statistical anomalies.  That's why they're newsworthy.  We don't always have to condemn surfing or blame the victim's 'risk' taking.  I guess it just makes people feel better about their own tenuous grip upon existence.  But if a shooting occurred in your nice neighborhood, and no murder ever occurred on your street before, I bet some person will pick up the paper and assume you should have known better to live in such a dangerous ghetto just for the low housing rates.”

“it really depends on what state you are in, some states are the complete opposite and favor the father.”

OpinesRmine on Jul 10, 2012 at 16:25:07

“Yes, indeed it does depend upon the state. In MN its totally one sided in favor of the man. Also, few women make enough money to hire expensive divorce attorneys. And noncompliance to visitation rights is considered a civil matter. With no money to hire an attorney, many mothers are left out in the cold, broken hearted...”

georginaobryan on Jul 10, 2012 at 14:35:27

“It is extremely rare when a father is favored unless the mother is a real class act in an extreme way. Most midwestern states are the worst when it comes to the father. Even with evidence, the father isn't likely to win when the mother simply has to state something against the father. Florida is bad but the worst so far has been Ohio when it comes to bias behavior against the father.”

“oh no, im not talking about legislating anything, i did say choose one or the other. women should always have choices. all im saying is the photo of mother and child bonding in such a natural and beautiful way seemed to contrast against the uniform and emphasize the fact that our military men and women are risking their lives when they are deployed.”

“Suggesting that women should choose one or the other is where you'll run into trouble. 
That's a decision for the individual. Personally, I wouldn't do it either but if others do they have my support.”

“i know i'm gonna get critcized for this but here goes..i don't think women with infants should even be in the military(at least not on active duty). choose one, to sacrifice for your country or sacrifice for your baby. you may say say"but men don't have to make that choice" i say babies for the first 2 or 3 years don't depend on their fathers physically and emotionally as they do their mothers, these photos are living proof of that. you are not just risking your life, but the future of your baby. enlist if you must but do it before baby or after baby is weened.”

“Perhaps these babies didn't adhere to their family planning schedule or the birth control failed. Should the mothers be fired from their jobs?”

“Yeah, I caught that, too. At least give her a chance to recover, right? He didn't even give her a day. Pulled her off the life support immediately, and she died just 3 days after the abuse.

I get that she wasn't supposed to have the caffeine, but if it was that serious, it sounds like no one sat down with her and explained her health condition and the things she could or could not eat. Even if they did and she disobeyed, I would think a sufficient punishment for a 9 year old would involve making her write a page-long essay on what her medical condition is, what she can and cannot eat, and why she cannot eat what she did.

Three hours of intense exercise is a lot, but people have certainly done it without dying. I am wondering if maybe her medical condition had something to do with the extremely low sodium levels and subsequent collapse. Maybe instead of punishing her after eating the caffeine-containing chocolate, the grandma should've taken her to the ER to make sure she was okay after eating something she wasn't supposed to.”
