personally I’m a hockey fan, but this is utterly stupid. We have turned into a sue happy society. Have an accident oops sue somebody for your screwup don’t take personal responsibility. Don’t tell me they didn’t know smacking heads over and over was safe. I mean that really plays into the whole jocks are morons stereotype.

while I’m against this abomination the truth is we are a Republic and majority does not rule.
A republic and a democracy are identical in every aspect except one. In a republic the sovereignty is in each individual person. In a democracy the sovereignty is in the group.
Republic. That form of government in which the powers of sovereignty are vested in the people and are exercised by the people, either directly, or through representatives chosen by the people, to whome those powers are specially delegated. [NOTE: The word "people" may be either plural or singular. In a republic the group only has advisory powers; the sovereign individual is free to reject the majority group-think. USA/exception: if 100% of a jury convicts, then the individual loses sovereignty and is subject to group-think as in a democracy.]
Democracy. That form of government in which the sovereign power resides in and is exercised by the whole body of free citizens directly or indirectly through a system of representation, as distinguished from a monarchy, aristocracy, or oligarchy. [NOTE: In a pure democracy, 51% beats 49%. In other words, the minority has no rights. The minority only has those privileges granted by the dictatorship of the majority
yes and I made my husband test for STD's before we married or consumated the relationship. I got the printout from the doctor and the all clear. Ladies take note guys too it isn't taboo it is being smart about your health. What goes around comes around, literally.
That's the solution! Why didn't I think of it before?

that because they are taught in school that we are a democracy. Our government uses that term. Its called a lack of education.

Look at all the departments that have been formed for one purpose and now that purpose has grown into areas that have nothing to do with what they were formed to be. I’m to the point that they should abolish 90% of them.
Yep but it is ok to handcuff and detain innocent folks to get the bad guy. This country is turned up side down.

my husband works with guys who have the same attitude. They seem to think no biggie.

Yea, want to hear something even sadder not all those registered even vote. In Texas less than 20% of registered voters turned out to vote in the primary. Will be better in November, but still won’t make much more than half. Wait and see. Oh yea and according to Texas population count only about 50% are registered to vote. So that really makes it sad.
