    Yes, but most of these rules and laws are not enforced equally. Most of them are stupid and shouldn’t even be on the books in the first place. Stories like this highlight how much our government likes to boss us around and control our lives. You are right, people should get more involved and work to change the laws. Sometimes, the best way to get the laws changed is to use the media to draw attention to your cause.

    I don’t know why I suffered through this whole article. But, I can say i wholeheartedly disagree with you. If I have the right to marry my roommate for tax and insurance purposes, why can’t two men or women get married? The two of us can go to a court house right now, fill out some forms, pay a fee and be married. No pomp, no circumstance, no name changing. We can both still be “single” and date other people. And if those other people become something more, we can go back to the court, fill out some paperwork and terminate our marriage hasslefree.
    God has NOTHING to do with marriage. If you believe in God, you are free to have your marriage blessed by God, through whatever religion you choose. That doesn’t mean that the Church, or any religion has to endorse, condone, or accept your marriage. But, those people who are denied by religion should still be allowed the same benefits under the law. Religion has no business in our laws.

    Based on the evidence it doesn’t look like he lunged at the cops. He was shot in the back.

    Sounds like you would prefer living in Russia or under Sharia law. Lethal force should ONLY be used if an officer believes their life or the life of somebody else is in immediate danger. If a suspect is running, then police should not shoot. In this case, based on the evidence the cops were wrong. They should all be tried for murder. As a police officer you cannot shoot somebody in the back. The ONLY acceptable reason would be if the person was running away from you toward another individual with intent to harm. If the guy did indeed lunge at the cops, then he should have at least 1 shot in the front of his body. I don’t know why these cops killed him, but if all the shots were in his back, then the cops are 100% in the wrong.

    I wonder how long until his restaurant goes out of business?

    The problem isn’t just the schools over reaction, but the fact that couple felt obliged to tell the school in the first place. We have a generation of spoiled, entitled, and thin skinned pansies who graduate college lacking the skills they need to survive in the brutal, dog eat dog world outside of their college bubbles.

    Nope. You better start stocking up on gold and silver, or on real goods like canned foods, firearms and ammunition, and other things that will have a real value to trade with when the monetary system collapses.

    I don’t need any device to deal with this. If somebody reclines their chair into me, I just dig my knees and make them uncomfortable.

    Exactly. The cop is nothing more than a wanna-be thug who thinks his badge gives him power and authority. He should be suspended and put on desk duty for a week or so, and be trained on how to deal with idiots.

    Why were the police kicking people out of McDonalds in the first place? Since when do police have the power to force people to leave a public establishment when no laws are being broken?

    Or what about the lawsuits when somebody gets killed because the gun wouldn’t fire because it was registered to somebody else? Imagine being home alone, and a burglar breaks in. The only gun available isn’t registered to you, it is registered to your significant other, or parent. You grab the gun expecting to be able to protect yourself, but you can’t because the gun won’t fire since you don’t have the proper rfid chip.

    Because taking away freedoms to catch criminals is always the solution.

    This seems a bit much for freshmen. But, I do think we need to be teaching kids about how to have safe sex, and other ways to express their natural urges in ways that do not involve the risk of pregnancy.Unfortunately, it seems that parents across the country are doing a poor job of preparing their kids for the responsibility of having sex. When parents fail to do their job, the government decides it has to step in. If we want to stop this overreach, than parents need to do a better job. Parents really should be having the safe sex conversation with their kids before they start high school. You can live in denial that your kids aren’t going to experiment with sex or you can be a parent, and have the uncomfortable and difficult conversation.

    This movie was great. It had everything. Great action, great jokes(i personally loved the jackson pollack joke), a solid storyline, and the humanizing aspects that turned these aliens into real characters the audience could empathize with(which is kind of crazy since one character is a CGI talking racoon, and the other is a tree who says 3 words the whole movie.)

    YES! I would love to have one sitting on my desk at work.

    Do you worry that your brain surgeon is drunk?

    Then alcohol should be illegal as well. It serves is a public menace and helps no one. Is drug use bad? Of course it is, especially when it is abused. But abusing anything is bad. I personally think all drugs should be legal. Drugs use should be treated as a public health issue, not a criminal justice issue. There are millions of drug addicts who desperately need help. The problem with drug prohibition is that these people who need help can’t always get it without fear of being imprisoned. Do we treat alcoholics as criminals? Not until they commit a crime. If we treated other addicts the same way we treat alcoholics, it would better for everybody. I think we would have better luck helping these people solve their problems if we didn’t threaten them with incarceration. These addicts don’t get better in prison. They got lumped in with murderers and rapists and instead of getting help, they gain more contacts in the criminal world. Throwing people who need help in prison only enriches the prison system, and puts a burden on the welfare state.

    Too bad most people don’t have that option. Taxes are automatically deducted from my paycheck. I have no way of refusing to pay them, and must file taxes to get back the money I overpaid.
    If we want things to change, we must demand that the IRS stops auto deducting money, and that everybody must file their taxes at the end of the year. When Americans start writing checks to the government(or realize they didn’t budget properly and can’t afford their tax bill), then things will change. For now, most people have no idea how much they are really paying, and are instead thrilled to be getting a refund.

    Or we could bring our troops home from the Middle East and use them to secure our border instead.

    I completely agree with his stance. If we want marriage to involve certain legal benefits, such as tax breaks, shared insurance and visitation rights, then it should be open to any two individuals who seek those benefits. If I can marry a woman only to gain benefits, then why can’t two men or women who actually love each other be afforded those same benefits?
