    “. . . five years of sex offender probation following his prison term.”
    No.
    Someone who commits such an act of depravity is simply too far gone to allow back into society.
    After the “prison term” — he goes into a “halfway community” it looks like any other small town except that it only has men in it and you cannot leave until you can PROVE that you will not sexually hurt someone AND you (or maybe the ACLU) can post a $10 Million bond to compensate any victims if you leave and you DO sexually hurt someone.

    @ hold the line
    Liquid fuel reactors are amazingly safe. Fermi built an aqueous homogenous reactor as part of the Manhattan Project. He was impressed with the safety of the liquid fuel and he put it to the test: the control rods (ALL control rods) were very quickly removed and guess what? No explosion — it just shut itself down. Why?
    As the fuel heated up, it became less dense — thus providing inherent negative feedback from the increase in temperature. This same sort of negative feedback is at play in our solid fueled reactors — but it is limited to diminished density of the moderator. When the fuel itself becomes less dense with heating, the safety factor is astounding.
    While aqueous reactors are not much contemplated nowadays, the same safety benefits are inherent in Molten Salt Reactors.

    Yup — you don’t want the fence around your abode to have barbed wire on top that is leaning TOWARDS you.

    The whole anchor baby concept is based upon footnote 10 of Plyer v. Doe (1982).
    The footnote ignored the fact that the immigration laws had changed markedly over the preceding 100 years (in particular, prior to the 1920′s there was no such thing as entering the United States illegally).

    Crazy:
    Reading isn’t a strong point for you today, is it?
    My post’s topic was not a flat-out abortion ban.
    Do you really think that 2/3 of Americans are OK with partial birth abortion?
    Just because 90% of people you know are for it, that doesn’t really provide much insight.

    Two aspects in the abortion debate are easy winners among the American public:
    (1) Abortion is big business that gets government funding (including money from Americans who are totally opposed to abortion)
    (2) Late term abortion (especially partial birth abortion)
    Gender selection abortion could be a third aspect that is an easy winner.

    Yup — no one does the Mussolini pose like Der Obamasar

    oxymoron:
    “don’t buy into the liberal hype about this ‘wheel’ invention”
    or
    “Don’t don’t buy into the scientific facts about this ‘nuclear’ energy.”
    Same idea.

    I’m glad it’s only season ending and not career ending.

    Well . . . either all of those things OR they wholeheartedly support the speedy deployment of Generation III and Generation III+ nuclear power plants.
    Many big innovations over the past few decades have been left undeveloped:
    Molten Salt Reactors, the “Adams Atomic Engine”, Integrated Fast Reactor (that one was actually demonstrated — as was the MSR), and many more.
    Get to it, Greenies!

  • [3] September 22, 2014 at 1:51pm

    oxymoron:
    “one must invest in future technologies in order to be on the cutting edge of that technology.”
    So, Generation III+ nuclear power then, right?

    Renewable Energy Idea:
    (1) Wrap the body of John D. Rockefeller Sr. in wire (like an armature)
    (2) Put the body in a dynamo
    (3) The electricity generated will be endless as Old Rockefeller SPINS IN HIS GRAVE

    Don’t you mean “global climate change”?

    shogun459 — very glad that your father made it (despite Hanoi Jane’s efforts).

    7) She is really good at posing like Mussolini.

    Oh, and where I said “Liam Neeson’s ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ “, I meant to say “This Is Where I Leave You”
    (Actually kind of embarrassing when I was going off about accuracy.)

  • [5] September 22, 2014 at 12:18am

    LOL
    shogun459, you get the “Pied Piper Award” here
    (1) You post legitimate reasons to avoid Liam Neeson’s “A Walk Among the Tombstones”
    (2) Since the article is about “The Maze Runner”, everyone who just reads the comments thinks that Hanoi Jane has something to do with “The Maze Runner”
    (3) Huge numbers of people denounce “The Maze Runner”
    Actually, it is a very interesting expose of crowd psychology.
    Thanks and Congratulations.

    Yes, that does work:
    “Avowed liberal, genuine communist”

    zapparules was probably responding to Prov, not you.
    As for your post, though — what “victims” are you talking about in the Baltics?
    Are you going back to the 1400′s or something?
    Note that Prov was using PRESENT tense.
    600 years ago is not present tense.
    Islam never went though a Reformation — and it SHOWS.

    “Moore, an avowed liberal”
    Really, “avowed”?
    As if he might merely be SAYING he is liberal, but actually he isn’t?
