Audrey Tatou I think is the best choice from the list.

I liked her in Amelie and Dirty Pretty Things.

No Herschel that is incorrect.

Actually there are plenty of people who can operate a vehicle just fine after a drink or 2 or after waiting until they have sobered up. However there is more to driving after drinking a small to moderate amount than just limiting your drinks. You ALSO have to consciously pay attention, follow all traffic laws and use extra caution. You have to make sure that your passengers who may be more drunk than you don't distract you, and if they do, either get them to stop or pull over and park somewhere until things calm down. If you can't do that, then it would be irresponsible to drink and drive, but plenty of people can and do so responsibly and those people should not have to face drastic consequences for doing so.

The only people as "bad" as Morua that night were the ones who drove home at twice the legal limit while (possibly) speeding or going through high foot traffic zones.

DarNel, did you hear from a source that he was speeding?

I was awaiting those 2 pieces of information in the trial..

What are you talking about?? This is all very simple, you keep complicating it with weird government jargon about boundaries being set (by WHO?) and been 'accepted' (by WHO?). What you actually mean is that the other ranchers have backed down and accepted tyranny and accepted that their land was stolen by the government because they were afraid of the monopoly force and violence behind government.

This is EXACTLY like the Zapatistas if you think about it in very simple terms - you settle some empty land, you live on that land, you ranch on land, it's your land!! The government can't come in after the fact and say they own it. Eminent domain is tyranny, eminent domain is fascism. That's exactly what happened to the Zapatistas, and the Mexican government had guaranteed they could continue farming their land in their old Constitution. The new treaty that the US made Mexico sign in 1992 with the passage of NAFTA which forced them to change their Constitution that said that the GOVERNMENT owned the land, at which point they could sell it cheap to corporations and the people who it belonged to got kicked off their land.

There is literally ZERO difference between the Zapatista situation and the Bundy situation. People live on land, government steals the land. Period. You can't manipulate and rationalize it any other way logically. It sounds like the media has taken some statements Bundy has made out of context because the media is corporate agenda driven and obviously not on the side of the Bundy's or the Zapatistas (coincidence??).

Ken, that's precisely the problem, the government shouldn't be able to steal our tax dollars to "purchase" land that belongs to other people. This is exactly why the Zapatistas rose up, because the government claimed that the land they had been on for generations belonged to the government - so the government sold that land to corporations and kicked off the people who rightly owned it. That's exactly what is happening here.

You need to separate your definition of who owns the land from who the government says owns the land. The government is full of thugs.

Or maybe if Morua didn't own a car, then a car or taxi behind Morua would have been up a car length and Mallory would have been killed by them instead, she did cross in the middle of the street and not at a crosswalk (which happens to be legal there, but is also unsafe if you aren't watching the traffic).

I was going to wait until the trial hashed this all out, I have no idea if he was speeding or if he should have been able to stop, but it looks like there won't be a criminal trial.

spacey that is ridiculous, Bundy's family has been grazing cattle on that land for over 130 years, the federal government has no right to that land at all. A person on welfare is somebody who doesn't provide any goods or services to the community and expects everything to be provided for them in return. People who grow and raise food are fundamentally important to all of our survival and your attitude that government has control over the land and not the people is the same attitude that gets farmers in third world countries booted off the land they have lived on for generations, then giving the land to giant corporations forcing the farmers to go into the city and work in sweatshops. The fact is the government needs to just give up most of the land they own so people can go live on it and raise crops if they choose. Bundy's have been at that location for 130 years, it belongs to him, period.

Second of all, I really hope you don't actually advocate the violent removal of Bundy and those defending him from his land. That is literally disgusting behavior that as I said corporations actively engage in developing countries to persuade the government to kick farmers off their land so they can give it to corporations in return for bribes. That is precisely what is going on here, they are stealing land from farmers to give it to corporations in exchange for bribes. Don't bother posting the debunking pieces posted on the internet about the Chinese energy company, those have already been debunked using government documents.

You really need to think harder about what you are advocating for. Giving the land to the government is the opposite of giving it to the people, giving it to the government = giving it to corporations. You need to stop worshiping the government so much because in the end you are just supporting and worshiping large corporations who control the government.

I wonder if he will get more prison time for stealing the money or for the tax evasion on the stolen money?

I guess the lesson is don't steal, the government hates competition.

Ya but they have to train the new army of people in how to handle those type of situations. Not to mention there are logistical differences. For example I heard not everybody in the evacuation zone got the call to evacuate because they didn't have land lines.

This kind of stuff is why I think it's safest to assume that everything in the media is staged:
