“Vintyn baby looks like you have issues and have to show that a woman did it too. The big difference is that if that really happened she did it to herself, it is a rare occurance, and it has nothing to do with the story line.
Get your facts straight”
“This kind of stuff happens and will continue to happen mainly because men think of women as their property and/or objects. Men in general profile women-just look at statistics regarding rape and murder.”

“I agree, you don't see men being exploited, like women and girls. Some guys just need an attitude adjustment. Hopefully Castro will get adjusted every day he's in prison.”
“The guys a thief plain and simple and should have been arrested!
But all of you who defend Walmart should take a look at their yearly profits. They are a scum corporation who feel they should not have to pay their employees a better minimum wage and for that WE pay.
Given their employees makes such lousy wages they qualify for medical and that is costing all of us. I wonder if the people who defend them make 7.25/hour. I doubt it.”

“Yes. People dissatisfied with their jobs should steal. It should be legal for people to steal. People not making enough at their jobs should be able to take whatever they want whenever they want. Don't work hard, don't go to school, don't plan any kind of strategies to get ahead, just take what you want.
In reality, it does not matter how little or how much a person makes; it is never enough; people always want more.
A lot of people use your style of logic to get what they want. While in this instance it is a form of embezzlement. But, in life overall, just about every prisoner in every prison has some kind of story similar to your rationale which "justifies" their crime; be it theft to murder.
Their excuses are like "boiler plate"; just insert the phrase to complete the sentence. My crime was justified because: "minimum wage", "bad mother", "father never took me fishing", "kids always teased me",.... All of these and more are justification for any crime.
You think it's okay to steal? Fine. Go ahead and steal. But, be ready to pay the price when you are caught, and enjoy your three-hots, a cot, and really cool roommates. There's a gym, basketball courts, baseball fields, arts and crafts, and acting classes.”

“Two separate issues that should never be brought up in this conversation.”
“Pretty soon after more and more of our children have birth defects, heart conditions, kidney problems people will believe in labeling food and look at altering nature.
My father, who was quite a head of his time was against processed food back in the 50s and 60s. Now the pigeons are coming home to roost:
"you are what you eat"
Beside if you think you have nothing to hide why not label what's in your food. The reason they don't is pretty obvious.”
“Killing does not stop the madness.......
I really don't think creeps that murder stop and think...oooh I'm not going to get the death penalty so I'm gonna kill someone. They are sick sick sick people who don't think and just have some hideous animal instinct to kill. They are reactive. I'm not saying they should or shouldn't be eliminated I just don't think killing one of them makes another who is thinking about taking someone's life...not kill. Common people think about it. We kill plenty of people but it doesn't stop the next heinous murder.”

“Until the mindset is changed, the carnage will continue...As of now, predators can look forward to 3 hots and a cot, and a very nice training ground to hone their predatory skills...Recidivism proves that point.”

“Really? when someone acts like an animal they should be killed like an animal. Let me ask you something, If an animal killed an innocent human being what would we do? THE ANSWER IS PUT A GUN TO THEIR HEAD AND GO BANG. Why would we even think any different for this KILLER? I am sure if this happened to one of your loved ones your mind would change on this.”
“I'm actually against guns...period..... but at the same time recognize criminals do not obtain guns the same way most people go about purchasing them. They (criminals) don't go to gun shows, gun stores, or buy them from someone who has purchased them legally. They obtain guns the way people obtain drugs...on the black market. That will continue to do so no matter what is legislated. Assault weapons simply will not diminish in supply they will just be more expensive to purchase. Don't want guns? Too bad they ware here to stay.”

“Yes, they actually do get them from someone who purchased them legally. They get their guns from straw purchases (someone buys a gun for them) or from corrupt, licensed gun dealers.”

“I'm a liberal and all the stuff you said was nonsense. And furthermore this news item was not about what you wrote about....it was about a child molester. Go to another chat and yell there. Stick to the subject Robert E Deninger!”
“dsa1115...the last time I checked the Repubs don't believe in Democracy. They believe in State's rights until it is too personal or what they consider immoral. They, the Repubs if you recall were against Obama from day one of his first 4 years and let him accomplish as little as possible although he did end two wars, kept the economy from going over the cliff, ended
"Don't Ask Don't Tell" and killed Osama Bin Laden. But you Repubs don't consider those accomplishments unless it's your boys pullin the strings. (and the mostly are boys...good ole boys to boot)”
“I'm sure this will be a unpopular view with many but I'm really really sick of the girl/woman getting all the blame. Boys should be taught to either abstain or be as responsible if not more careful then the girl. They are just as much to blame as the female,and yet we just still have a double standard society. Wear a raincoat if you don't want to make babies, it's not that complicated.”

“Thank you! I assure you that many people agree with your view--they're just not males. To be fair, some men will agree but they are in the minority amongst males.”
“To me it's just a lousy excuse to be a cheap a**h*le. Don't go out to eat if you can't afford it and if you do, tip people. They are generally making a mediocre living to begin with unless it's some very high end place and then they probably have to report a good deal of their dough. I have been a waitperson and it is no fun. The public in general sucks and they often take out either their pretention or bad mood on the waiter/waitress.”

“Spent my younger years as a busboy in ritzy clubs and steakhouses, people can be rude, rich or wealth-challenged....”
I always get a kick out of it---- when you gun lovers have people who don't agree with you bring up the words lefty, liberal and commie. Some of us out there are none of the above but believe in gun registration and keeping guns out of the hands of freaks and the mentally ill. Oh yeah and I forgot to bring up missile launchers and scuds. A little control there too might be nice.
Tell me how that is being a lefty, liberal or a commie.”
“Wow what an exciting career change after Bain Capital. You think this guy who is loaded with dough could find a more creative career. Maybe do something to help the world a little after having taken so much. Like help the poor get some of the same he has gotten his whole life. Plus he never did it on his own like he pretends to. The rich stay rich by being helped by the rich, ie his daddy. Just like the Bush dynasty. At least Georgie Bush's daddy helped to found a foundation in Haiti.
So damn boring just like he, Romney, would have been, had he been elected President.”

Plus the guy is writing a book and stands to make a heap of dough, way to go already wealthy neurosurgen. Doop a few more people.”
“I wonder if he even has a brain and if he does, how much it weighs? I wonder if he hums that song from the Wizzard of OZ as he walks around the halls of Congress. "If I only had a brain....." Wow and he gets paid as well for what he does!!!!!!!”

“I'm not worried about disease but I really don't care to see other people's genitals which is exactly what they are peddling. Some of them even have little collars around their penis and other apparatis around testicles. This isn't about nudity it's about showing off your junk. Go to a beach or to other people homes and do it. Plus they sit on the chairs with a tiny little towel, like I'm suppose to feel ok to sit where some bare ass has been sitting. Of course there is absolutely no regard for children and that it scares the hell out of some of them to see grown men parading around naked. Most of them have dumpy bodies to boot.”
You forgot to mention those EVIL unions that started the whole thing with demands for sick time, 40 hour work weeks, job protection, child labor law enactments, overtime, fair wages, and unearned pensions (gasp).
Don't forget to mention how wonderful it has been to have out-sourcing by big corporations-giving away American Jobs and paying foreign workers below minium wage in other countries so that can then hide their humongous profits overseas and not pay their fair share of taxes that also helped to plunge America into one of it worse Recessions.”
“Ok Jank51 Why don't you explain to us who don't know what you know: just who are "those" people are that pay NO taxes especially since you have pointed out it is not the super rich. Just who are these loffers that feed off the rest of us....
Oh and maybe you can enlighten me why Romney payed only 14% income tax. Oh wait I forgot. So he can reinvest in companies and hire people like he did with Bain Capital who then went on to close businesses and fire people. Makes total sense.”
I would love to know more about what you think of teachers and their unions. People like you equate big corrupt salaries with a group of people who make next to nothing and teach your children. Oh but you don't think we do? Try living on our salaries where you can remain a teacher for 20 years and make a whopping big 60,000 a year. If it wasn't for the unions there wouldn't even be that, nor would there be job protection, weekends off, sick time, health care or the small pension we get. You know nothing about unions except to blame them. Teachers should be making what corrupt wall streeters, bankers, commodity brokers make. Those are the people you should point the finger at, instead of unions and teachers. Try being one before you you blast off at something you know very little about.
Try looking up what teachers are up against and the real salaries we live on. I thank the unions for the little I do get.”

“Fan 11, let me assure you I appreciate teachers. The good ones have an extraordinary impact on the lives of their students. However, teachers unions don't want teachers to be treated like professionals. That is they don't want them to be held responsible for their work. Unions only want the pay of professionals.
A government job used to represent a safe, steady job with reasonable hours, reasonalbe benefits and reasonable pay. When taking a government job there was a trade off between working excessive hours in the private sector where the pay was more lucrative. Now due to the tyranny of public sector unions, the civil servant is now expecting to be served by the private sector by provision of ridiculous salaries and benfits.
To address you specific question about $60,000 for a 9 month a year job with numerous holidays, you right it isn't fair. In the private sector that job is worth maybe $50,000 without all the government perks. People who have lived under the government umbrella their whole lives have a skewed view of reality. If you didn't like the pay that teaching offered, the great thing about this country is that you were free to seek a job in the private sector which paid what you believed you're worth. With all due respect, exactly how much should we be paying teachers? What is enough?”
