I served on a jury for an assault involving biting that left a permanent scar on the victims hand.Read More It wasn't just a bite but a ripping. This 'bleeding heart liberal' voted for conviction and led the jury to see this as egregious and requiring that we do convict. That's the price of being an adult human being, to do the hard thing when necessary.

the database of town/city names is being flagrantly abused. 'nearby ness' of these places hasRead More seemingly lost the context of the state parameter. remember, The Patch is now run/owned/controlled/abused by some guy by the name of Hale, who apparently could give a flea's poop about the end user. http://streetfightmag.com/2014/03/06/new-patch-owner-running-company-in-lean-entrepreneurial-mode/

Kudos. More judges need to speak up, and I bet it will happen, too. Every state should have capitalRead More punishment. Some people are not people; they're evil monsters and have no place here.

The Judge was right. Too bad they don't have the death penalty.
MG42 April 18, 2014 at 12:13 pm
There's no way being President is the toughest job in the world. As POTUS, you can basically takeRead More money from your customers at gunpoint. Totally different than running a real company.
Life April 18, 2014 at 12:19 pm
Thank you Gary. I wish there were more reasonable people like you. I'm repulsed by theRead More increasingly "gimme" mentality of Americans. The post World War II generation took nothing for granted and everyone took personal responsibility for their livelihood. Sadly, that's not true today. And today's kids are growing up with parents (and a society) that perpetuates the "what's in it for me?" mentality. Incidentally, while I have been working my business for the past 6 years, my neighbor across the street was without a job for 2 years. While collecting unemployment, he filled his wall with video games, drank everyday, smoked, tattood his arms, and just sat in his livingroom playing video games. This is an able bodied, 36 year old man with 3 kids. Well, I have 3 kids too, and a mortgage, utilities, healthcare bills, etc. you name it (and that's not including the business expenses). And guess what I paid in self-employment taxes? HALF of my income!! So while I'm working 60 hours a week, he's sitting on his ass. And in the end, I have to fund his living expenses through exorbitant taxes. I never again want to hear anyone say the rich is not fair to the poor. I am by no means rich. But if I ever become rich under this system (which is unfair to ME) then I damn well deserve to get where I am. At that point, I will gladly be generous to the poor, but not the lazy poor. "If a man (able bodied) shall not work, neither shall he eat" I appreciate what my husband said once "Even if I have to scrub toilets, I will never choose not to work"
Life April 18, 2014 at 12:26 pm
I agree with MG42. POTUS is set for life. Former Presidents rake in millions long after they'veRead More served. How do you know the CEO's of private companies aren't giving much of their income away? But it sounds like Fran wants to take it away by force.

Maria Houser Conzemius April 18, 2014 at 12:23 pm
Ridiculous. People need to read the book I had to read for my MSW program at the University of IowaRead More School of Social Work, "The Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Prison." Matt Taibbi wrote an update (as wealth inequity and white-collar crime continue unabated and unconsequented) called "The Divide," which says much the same thing, and I'm anxious to read it. Wall Street CEOs can still millions and billions of dollars and not one of them goes to prison. In fact, they're laughing all the way to the bank. Yet this poor schmuck gets a free 89-cent refill and it costs him hundreds of dollars. Maybe things will have to get worse before people wake up and smell the coffee!

Why have the drink fountain accessible to patrons if they aren't allowed to refill? Why not fillRead More the drink behind the counter so there is no confusion? You typically put the fountain out in front of the counter and allow patrons to fill their own cups when there are free refills. This incident is arguably entrapment.

I have a smart meter, and it looks to me like the advantages of improving the grid with newRead More technology to make it more dynamic, plus reducing the amount of utility vehicles on the road to manually read the meters far outweighs the cons. We have wi-fi, cellular, and microwaves all in our homes, so why worry about a little RF outside of the home? And why is privacy a concern? It's just data about the energy you are using.
Bryan Harz April 18, 2014 at 01:52 pm
I agree they shouldn't charge people for refusing, and Sharon made the best suggestion to check yourRead More bill and don't be afraid to ask questions.

I would like to comment on this article but Patch has violated my 1st Amendment Right multiple timesRead More and does not allow me to comment, leaving me effectively dead.

Patch cannot violate your 1st amendment rights. Only the government can do that.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases!

Art: Perhaps we should stick to "killers" and not try to put a "rose" on it byRead More cleaning the waters with references to breaking curfew or robbing a store. Let us just stick with the muddy waters of "murder." I would suggest that mixing subject might be a bit confusing.
art doyle April 18, 2014 at 08:51 am
I respectfully disagree. The justice system is not an emotional one. There is no difference betweenRead More murder and speeding. If you do a crime, there is a penalty. That is the discussion underway, what is an appropriate penalty, not what constitutes a 'rosey' transgression.
Lorna D. Rudnikas April 18, 2014 at 12:06 pm
Does the penalty "fit" the crime...perhaps an important part of the discussion. From myRead More perspective, the "discussion" seemed to drift a little. Don't expect the justice system to be emotional, just on the money with regard to justice!

Maria Houser Conzemius April 18, 2014 at 12:35 pm
We need bomb-sniffing police dogs or military dogs. We also need to make the FBI accountable forRead More their failure to follow up on Russian warnings that Tamerlan Tsarnaeyev was being radicalized. The real jihadist in the family was the Tsarnaeyev's brothers' mother. The Russians knew that but didn't send the video proving it to the FBI. Even so, they told the FBI enough that they should have been on their trail, and the FBI blew it. And why weren't they on top of the former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan who shot to death three non-Jews in an anti-semitic attempt to kill Jews in Overland Park? Why do we allow so much surveillance of citizens when the results are so disappointing? It's not like the FBI is getting the job done. They miss a lot of really big, obvious targets.

I got married in the Catholic Church ( first marriage ) and they had no problem with "paganRead More songs."

Yeah ... it was the 70's.
