So when does child sex become a crime? 17 years, 364 days is a crime, but 18 years is OK? What about the age of the adult? 18 years and 1 day having sex with the 17 year old would be the same as a 53 year old having sex with the 17 year old? Life is not black and white and you can never make it so.

Loon, it takes much more than you think to see your own point of view. What about adults having consensual sex with children ( or teenagers)? What about a prostitute with AIDS continuing to ply her trade? What about a pregnant woman committing suicide? What about a heroin dealer selling drugs to kids? Do you think that your ideas on these subjects are going to be the same as someone else"s. These are all consensual acts. You are making everything simplistic when it isn't. Life is full of shades of gray. And you think that everyone that thinks as you do will always have the same opinion on these subjects. Well guess what? Life is complicated. The police need laws and guidelines to guide them. They can't all see the world as black and white as you do, otherwise the police will all enforce the law according to their own set of morals. Don't you think that we need our laws spelled out completely? Otherwise, how will people know if they are breaking them or not, and how will the police know how to enforce them?

Loon, too bad you can't move to a country where everyone creates their own laws and only have to live by the laws that they agree with.

Herschel - The Taliban already had "nation-like" status as they were the governmental authority in Afghanistan at the time. No one can reasonable argue that they are more powerful now without being in control of the government there. However, our objective at the time was bin Laden which we botched.

Can anyone really say that we shouldn't have taken out Bin Laden and/or the Taliban at the time? (after 9/11) Our mistake (as it always is) was not to leave.

"Senate President Darrell Steinberg has refused to act to remove his Democratic colleague from office until the formal sentencing hearing, but Wright said Tuesday that he will take an “indefinite leave of absence” to focus on his legal problems. He will continue to receive his $95,291 salary."
Our legislature's concern for the taxpayer remains unchanged despite all of this.
