I thinks this song is very appropriate for the subject at hand:

Perhaps so, but someday carpel tunnel syndrome will get you via your hypergraphic need to post every time someone breaths.

Jarvis, why didn't you tell the man that before he lost all hope?

Dolphinpod, you've been crazy for a long time.

@DavyBrown: We live in a free society--at least on paper--and it's much better to allow someone the freedom to make ridiculous statements (I'm not taking a position on Jarvis's posts here, I'm merely arguing theoretically) than shut them up because it challenges us to either A: Come up with a response that can refute what the person says, or B: Admit that the person has a point.

When people want to shut other people down/censor them, it is often because they can't come up with an argument to counter those they wish to silence.

@Noletaman, as we know, so much $$$ involved in the booze industry it isn't even funny.

Kudos to the authors for speaking truth to power.

Two words: "Due process". pardallchewinggumspot doesn't want that. Should grammar schools be able to throw somebody out for murder even without filing charges with the police?

Also, what is the liability on the part of the school if the accused is proven innocent in a court of law? Does the student get their money back? Can the falsify accused sue for defamation?

Some observations:

"Common sense" and "sensible" are buzz words anti-gun people use.

Invoking "children" is another tactic.

Invoking the I.V. killings happened here, with no mention of the fact that three of the killed were stabbed to death.

Not all gun owners and 2nd Amendment advocacy groups are trigger-happy testosterone-crazed Rednecks, to wit: (women) (Jews) (gays)

What is your greatest fear?

"My greatest fear is that we continue on this clipped pace of environmental degradation to the point of no return."

Would that include adding too many people to this area via city college enrollment from people out-of-town?

The sick nature of his crimes is matched by the transparency of the excuses made on his behalf.
