“Yeah cause that alone will get them out. Why would someone go to another and confess if they didn't feel even slightest bit of remorse or guilt? Claiming ignorance has never been upheld in court so your point is mute.”
“sure they all new it was wrong or he never would have asked the minister. they are not retarded. and dont give me the crap that they didnt know better.”

“They were homeschooled and raised in a compound. Its completely logical they were raised to believe it was right and that only when the oldest was able to freely ask if it were normal did he realize how wrong it was. Obviously he must have morally felt it was wrong to ask but by the sound of the home life he was raised to believe it wasn't. He went to the police, a person who honestly believed he did no wrong would not seek punishment.”

“let the kid have her own name. i was named after my grandmother and aunt and i wanted to be just me,and not have to ask "which one".
i wanted to be an indivudal, not them and it was worse because i looked like them too.”

“Guess what. Unless your parents sit down with a box of Scrabble tiles and pull out random letters, one at a time, and use the result as your name, no one has his or her own name. There are other people with the same name in the world. Deal with it.
I too was named after my grandmother. I'm still an individual, and never considered myself to be anyone other than me.”

“Doubt when you were born, you had so much independence. Doubt you can speak for all children either. To each his own. The child has the name which her parents have selected. When you have children, it is one of the perks! IMO”
“slavery back then was taxation without representation.
they paid taxes to Pharoh but got no say in anything.
jews pretty much got to do what they wanted and go where they wanted and they had their own homes.
how could the spirit of God pass over their homes if they were slaves?”
RileyH on Apr 17, 2014 at 11:28:28
“This sparked a very good conversation at my Rabbi's seder, so thank you! Yes, slavery back then was very different. However, even slaves need somewhere to live. There is also mention that the Jews had animals that did not die durning the plagues, and they were somehow able to buy lambs for the sacrifice, which all strengthens your question. How could they own and buy livestock as slaves? Best answers we could come up with were that the situation was more like indentured servitude than southern slavery. The Jews had been living successfully in Egypt for quite some time before they were made slaves, rather than being shipped over in chains like southern slavery. So it stands to reason that they had property of their own before they were enslaved. I think it was pretty common back then for poor populations to be taken and forced to work, the Egyptians forced their own sometimes (I think thats how pyramids were built and so on, but I don't have a source). So I dont think it is such a contradiction to say that they were slaves (i.e., forced to work without pay, beaten, etc.), yet still owned their own homes and provided their own food. If I were an egyptian, I think it would be way easier to let the Jews live on their own dime AND build my cities, rather than take them, house them, and feed them.”

“because they have kids when they are working and then life goes to hell in a handbasket. someone loses a job or get sick and cannot work.
or women cannot get birth control.BC pills are around $60 a month if you pay cash. a lot of money,so you take your chances because humans cannot live without sex.”
TaylorTexas on Mar 30, 2014 at 11:38:51
“Can you feed, clothe, provide medical care, and otherwise support a kid for $60 a month? No, so $60 for BC pills is money well spent. If women can't 'live without sex', then charge the guy $60 and your BC is paid for!”

“I'd be willing to bet that the majority of the women in this article started having babies before they had a job and were never married. And a box of condoms only costs around $5 and is available at any corner store. If that one lady can afford a smart phone (as pictured above) then she can afford a box of condoms. It's called personal responsibility. Look it up, because odds are, if you're a democrat, you don't know what it is.”

and she is entitled to every freakin penny of it.
what the hell happened to civil rights?
maybe the dog just did not like the woman.
ev eryone in the hospital who did these things to her deserves to be fired and never allowed to treat a patient again.
what the frig happened to "do no harm"?”

“in europe you can also buy your way to the best as long as you pay for it.
My daughter and grandchildren always go to specialists in Italy and they pay about the same as my copay here for a regular doctor.
if you want to pay for immediate surgery,you go to the top of the list.still less than a deductible here and you see specialists.”

“i see kids in my area without coats inn the snow or wearing shorts.
i know they have coats but they just will not wear them.i am talking maybe 8 and up.
sometimes i yell "too stupid to put a coat on in the snow?" but they dont care.
so i probably would have ignored the kid.”

“hahaha, in my fathers side of my family it is that way with the name "Leslie" we have had 8 of them among grandfathers, fathers, uncles and cousins. However I am the only female "Leslie"!”

“apparently you didnt read my post properly.
princesses have trainers,the best food and i am sure they do not go ionto kitchens.they propably only eat what they are given and i am sure no fast food. this girl is not a child,she is 17.
she should know that eating properly and exercise will insure her proper weight,unless she has a metobolic problem.
if a chilc is severely obverweight and it isnt medical,then parents need to take control.
NEVER tell a child they are overweight. but you can substitute good food for junk and make sure the child gets exercise. most kids dont lose baby fat until they are teens.the fat helps them grow.
i would tell a child that most princesses are young adults and they have plenty of time to look like that. but a 17 yr old fat girl needs to figure out what she needs to do to become mormal size.and that depends on her height and body shape and bone structure.”
“sorry honey,princesses are not fat. they can afford the best of everything,food ,trainers,gyms,colonics.
Sofia the first is a little girl princess and she is built like one.
have you ever seen a fat princesss?”
Jackie Yoshi on Feb 4, 2014 at 08:15:25
“Wow. So you'd tell this to a fat young child and feel no guilt? Perhaps think it's for her own good? Until years later she's in the eating disorders ward tearfully saying how she wanted to be thin, because a woman taunted her by saying, "Have you ever seen a fat princess?" This happens more often than you would believe. Words matter, if you said this to a child, you'd be teaching them if they're fat they're dirt.”

“i had GBP and nothing but problems.
blocked bowels,hernias,constant vomiting (and not from overeating) ruined my teeth and my esophagas.
they finally had to reverse it. lost 160 lb and gained back 70 of it.
now i have no teeth , just got dentures and no insurance-ouch!since they all broke,and still cannot eat properly and still vomit.
yet i have friends and family who didnt have a problem at all.
guess some of us have problems and some dont.”
