Did Sarah Palin's rhetoric cause him to do it?
As long as welfare feeds low achievers, there will be be a surplus of low achievers. Hunger is a motivator.
This is the funniest thing I've ever read.
"They are behind walls, their lives are totally controlled and they are being asked to work for free ... and are treated like animals. I don't see how this is not an obvious human rights issue." --- Of course they are being treated like animals. THEY ARE ANIMALS. They are feral homo sapiens. They are being separated from us for our safety.
"Among prisoners' demands are a "living wage," educational opportunities, increased visitation and improved food and facilities, according to a list of demands distributed to media." I wonder what they want Santa to bring them for Christmas?
We treat them better than they treated us. That is as "Christian" as I am willing to get. Look at any statistical study. Their life expectancy is better than their criminal peers who escape the long arm of the law. They are healthier, cleaner, fitter, better educated, and better prepared than their free criminal counterparts. I guess until prisons are like Hiltons the bleeding hearts will pine away at the injustice of it all.
Silliness. I wonder why Volkswagen didn't build their factory in Boulder? I wonder why Wacker came to Bradley County? I wonder why we have fewer foreclosures than nearly anywhere else? I think I'd rather be stupid and employable than overqualified and on food stamps. Unemployment is highest where degrees are superfluous.
I think its the headline that is stupid. The body of the article just said that the trial judge should have allowed the jury to decide the case. What's wrong with that?
one4community - that's just sad. Winning is reality for those who prepare for it. Congrats Signal.
The criminal justice system is not tasked with helping mentally ill people. It is charged with protecting innocent people from criminals. If people want assistance for the mentally ill, fund hospitals so that the chronically mentally ill are not wandering the streets victimizing others. The ill deserve better than they get. The court system is not to blame for the crimes committed by the mentally ill.
I'm a tea party guy. With that being said, infrastructure is an appropriate role for government. This idea that the private sector should do everything is stupid. What about courts? Heck if courts were such a good idea why haven't businesses come up with a plan? That's just silly. This train isn't guaranteed, but has the potential for improving our local economy. The proper role for government is setting rules and avenues so that business can flourish. Businesses cannot build interstate roads or trains but many times need them for the furtherance of commerce. This is an exciting time for Chattanooga. Let's not let the dummies ruin it.
This nepotism thing has got to be stopped. I saw a worktruck going down the road today and it said "Jones and Son Plumbing." I think the grandpa was a plumber too. I don't care if they do do a good job. They're never touching a pipe in my house.
This will be my last post. The broken record that is Clay Bennett is turning me into a broken record.
There is more to life than criticism.
What would Clay have us Tea Party sympathizers do - move to a ghetto? We are fellow citizens. We deserve the respect that all humans deserve. Evidently there isn't any room for middle class discontent in Clay's worldview.
Clay continually portrays us as evil, racist buffoons. It isn't funny anymore. So let this site become an echo chamber and a cheerleading section for a man who draws cartoons for a living.
This is not to say that I am without fault. I've typed things that are insensitive and not terribly constructive. But I won't any longer. I will no longer support with my attention a cartoon series that uses disrespect as a hammer and counsels the rest of us to do the same.
