“But the bigger issue for me is the constitutional part. Either you allow all faiths equal opportunity to present, or you let none present.”
I’d agree. When FFRF admits they are a faith, then they too can make presentations related to their faith-based tenants. A group, as you call them, is not part of “all faiths” having an “equal opportunity to present”.

However… “It is a defense to a prosecution pursuant to section 13-1405 if the victim is fifteen, sixteen or seventeen years of age, the defendant is under nineteen years of age or attending high school and is no more than twenty-four months older than the victim and the conduct is consensual.”
Not an exception, but it can be used as a defence.
I disagree that the level of response the mother engaged in should be considered acceptable for two teens having sex. If it was an adult with a minor, though, all bets are off.

… and have been with increasing frequency being shot while performing routine traffic stops.
I’m guessing there’s more to this story than the anti-gun media would have the viewer believe.

Exactly, sfear70. More likely it was heavily-edited by the media.

SLAPTHELEFT, but we aren’t told what traffic violations, specifically. It’s possible there were offences on his record, when they ran his licence, that led to his arrest, no? This is a heavily-edited media clip coupled with little context; it’s impossible to be dogmatic about what happened here.

Even if they were damaged while “just” being parked, they were parked illegally, so presumably farm would not be responsible for the damage anyway.
Every other article has the police saying the witness shot the carjack victim in the head ..
J-Mo - You are a liar. NO STory after the original misreported one makes that claim. You, as the press are suffering frim wishful thinking.

It was dangerous and irresponsible. This is not the movies.

She said that, but tips are usually entered after the customer leaves, having been written on the receipt that was signed. Not so much her fault, but paying cash for tips could have saved her the trouble.

To be fair, Mizurax, I would not have expected a 5 digit number to be part of the bill for a small meal, especially if I was in a hurry. Responsibility, yes, but this is understandable.
Plus, the tip is often entered after the customer leaves, not before. In many places, you sign the receipt for the amount you spent eating, and then add the tip to that receipt, which the business later enters manually after you’ve left. So even personal responsibility could not have saved her here. Leaving cash tips, as we do, might have.

Amen. I recently opened a dispute *while* I was talking with the company, in order to protect myself. As it went, they kept messing around trying to get me to pay return shipping (they sent me an obviously used product that was also significantly not as described), so I escalated it and suddenly they “wanted to make things right”, which meant they wanted me to cancel the escalated dispute and “work with them”. Uh, no. Final result was the charges were reversed to the fraudulent company, because they just dragging things out.

My 4 year and 6 year old granddaughters have been putting their dishes in the sink since they were old enough to toss them over the edge of it (before they could even *see* over the edge), and now they help mom load the dishwasher.
Still better than the dad doing it for them, I guess.
Yep, my 3 year old desperately wants to do the dishes; we let her "help" even though it takes longer. My six year old twins CAN do the dishes--they put teenagers to shame. We don't build kids with work ethic anymore. We're building Greece. No one will want to work more than three days a week, they'll want to retire by 40, and still think they are entitled to everything anyway.

Meh. I kinda like it. Especially if it was a kid, as it sounds like, the negativity was aimed at.

A “copy of the official complaint” is presumably public record, no? Regardless of what you think about the case, the author of the story was ridiculous in his lies.
 July 12, 2015 at 12:04am
I was wondering the same thing. I don’t want to harm any human, but if it’s me or them, and definitely if it is my loved ones or them, it’s going to be them. It’s like people forget they are IN a weapon, if needed.

Imagine if all that energy had been put into something like feeding the poor, planting trees, cleaning up the city, curing cancer, or solving global warming. /s
(I jest, but seriously, that’s a lot of time and effort put into something most of us will barely notice, if at all, and not care a wit about. Moving on…)

You say that like she should not love God, even if she has sinned.

Because signs that read “I need to spank my children” would mean there were parents who were holding themselves accountable for the problems. If they were the type of people to do that, they’d have actually spanked their kids in the first place. It’s “easier” to blame everyone and everything else.
 June 11, 2015 at 2:29pm
Exactly. Common sense.

You forgot he said ‘gossip’ and ‘low rent’. If you are going to whine, at least be thorough about it.
