Do you really think severe penalties will result in this behavior stopping? I don’t. Murder can be penalized with the ultimate punishment of death but it has not stopped people from murdering. Please don’t misunderstand me though; I say punish them. I just don’t think it will stop people like this from doing what they do.
You are correct. The death penalty is proving not to be a deterrent, but part of that is that it is not enforced. I think the average stay on death row is around 15 years. I believe once convicted (and with sufficient evidence to make appeals unnecessary), a quick, public, and perhaps painful execution may actually deter some (although not all) from committing murder.
Similarly, in cases like this, punishment will reduce the behavior. But no, it will not stop it.
Keep putting enough bad guys in the dirt and sooner or later the others will either get the picture and stop or they will all be gone. Either way not doing anything sure isnt getting us anywhere, just causing more and more issues since they know they can get by with it.
Many moons ago, but thank you. But unlike many today, I take responsibility for my injuries. I, and maybe as many as 75 others in that three year period, knew that the situation was dangerous. We watched it grow more dangerous, but the money that could be made elsewhere in tips (surprisingly, the people who kicked the crap out of pizza drivers did not tip well) was alluring, as was the ability to be driving around and listening to music rather than other employment options for college kids and college dropouts. Sad world indeed, even back then, but getting more sad.

While I agree that we need to call out these hypocrites, I don’t think it is okay to alter property that does not belong to us. Though I have to admit that this IS funny.
Perhaps that is one of the reasons we are condemning our grandchildren to a life
Ever hear of the Boston Tea party?
If this is what you are meaning, I don't think that any alteration was done to the actual movie posters, I think that a parody poster was made to post on its own. No damage was done to anyone's property.
I think most of those “problems” are societal and really nothing to do with the NFL exclusively.

Ah, good ol’ New Jersey. The state that also requires parents to pay for their child’s college. I would not live in that state if they made me governor.

actually, madenoughtocomment, this is the opposite of oxymoron. “Fair IRS” would be an oxymoron, but “IRS scammers” is redundant, kind of like “close proximity”

His clarification was good enough for me. The original comment was too vague to make any real opinion.

no down vote from me LooKing, in fact I up voted both of your comments. Further, Rogen’s original comment was too vague to make any real opinion to be fair. His explanation is sufficient for me. Far too many on both sides of the political aisle are far too assuming and too quick to judge without having all the facts and/or clarifications.

Even if he had his lights and siren on, a responsible driver does not fly through a red light without making sure it is safe to do so.
My condolences to the family of the deceased innocent person.

PimpleJuice, why do you presume to know what bulldog is really saying? Why can’t you accept what he actually wrote instead of offering your opinion? This does not even come to close to comparing with the Mike Brown case. The officer was in immediate danger in the Brown case and took action to stop it. What danger was this cop in that warranted his irresponsible driving which resulted in the death of an innocent person?

Authorities believe that the drink was poisoned with crocodile bile during the course of the funeral.

good points Con. I think you are right, it will have to be more like an amendment and I say to keep it simple, it must fit into one simple paragraph. No manipulations allowed. Same rate for every item sold across the board, no matter who is buying it.
Good idea for an tax amendment. My idea is for a cap and trade amendment on the total length of US tax law. I can not get it into one pargaph but here is a one page version, extracted from my letter to the editor of the WSJ, July 5, 2013 :
"(P)ropose a constitutional amendment limiting the (tax) code to, say, 2,500,000 characters (about 1,000 pages) and restricted to characters of a kind found in the Constitution itself.
Such an amendment is entirely feasible. References to law, text or authority outside of the tax code would be prohibited. Amendment stipulations would take effect five years after its ratification to allow Congress time to shrink the code. The amendment would sunset taxes that are not brought into the new smaller code. It would provide a definition of tax that individuals could apply to themselves, as well as to others when serving on juries. Tax expenditures and "negative taxes"—payments mandated by U.S. law to a person or persons, entitlements, subsidies, grants—would be included in the definition. The right to a jury trial in tax disputes larger than say $1,000 would be required. To provide time to read and act on tax law, changes could occur no more often than, say, six months."

Looks to me like an Asian face pointing to a “normal” smiley face. My guess is that someone from the Asian side did it before it even got to SFO. I am assuming it’s just in dirt/grease as opposed to paint? Likely just a friendly message by some bored employee. Regardless, the terrorists seem to be winning the war on terror. People become frightened so fast these days.

58 is more than we had. Let’s keep working on increasing these numbers. If I had to choose one issue that is the most important to me, this would be it.

Come on Cavallo, let’s not embellish what he said. He never said they got what they deserved; he explicitly said he did not condone violence. Granted, his opinion is certainly not mine. My suggestion is to leave the embellishing and sensationalism to the main stream media. We do not need to stoop to their level as the real truth is always enough.

seems a little petty to hold the company responsible for the action of one employee.They apologized and took action, what more do you want from them?

I have not yet heard of anyone that I personally know saying that Jeb Bush is their choice.
