Yes, poorly worded. I should not have said "can" because it would be possible to go on a wild spending spree, buying extra houses, yachts and planes, thus spending my accumulated wealth. The real point is that if I had another million dollars, I would not significantly alter my life style other than greater charity involvement.
Which ones do you want to replace? Would that be the oil industry, the NRA, big pharmaceuticals or the Koch brothers?
Wow, a point of agreement on the surveillance; however, you express a lack of understanding of the gun control. Background checks should not be a problem for law abiding citizens. If you are afraid of having a background check run, then I question your ability to handle a weapon responsibly.
While I agree that armed is the key to a very long sentence, the facts still remain that the wealthy get away with stealing billions and rarely are punished more than paying fines exceeding 6 digits. With no threat of jail and billions in profits after paying fines, where is the incentive for businessmen to be honest? This is not "wealth envy". I have accumulated more wealth than I can spend in a lifetime, partially thanks to the unfair tax policies designed to favor the wealthy. Do you really not understand the absurdity of claiming "wealth envy" as a reason to ignore criticism of a system designed by the wealthy for the wealthy? Warren Buffet, who tremendous benefits from this discrepancies, has explained the unfairness of the system. It is really funny that you think you can dismiss his arguments with accusations of "wealth envy". A true patriot would want to improve America and create a country that lives up to our Constitutional ideal of equal justice for all.
Politicians and bankers. Isn't it funny that the richer someone is, the less justice is administered. Corporations can get off with a fine when they break the law - and the executives that made the decision to violate the law for profit get off with no punishment in most cases. If corporations are people, when are we going to start putting corporations in jail for stealing millions from the people?
Wow!! Finally something on which liberals and conservatives agree. If only we had been able to keep him from getting the gun. Further note, doing a little research, seems he is suspected in another 20 dollar store robberies around Dekalb as well as drug deals and three other suspects have been arrested by Dekalb police.
Oh, that's funny! You declare that it requires a super-human ability to see inside someone's heart and then declare you have that ability when it comes to Martin! Don't you realize how (bleep) that sounds? Maybe you should look into your own heart for making such an assumption.
Which is more foolish: To drive drunk or let a lawyer convince you to finance an appeal that had almost no chance of success?
Could it be that the food network decided not to renew because her recipes were unhealthy food choices? Maybe all this was to cover up the real reason for her termination and allow her to entice racist to dine at her restaurants. Not beyond the scope since you admit that Cathy's intent may well have been publicity. Isn't it strange how these people use adverse publicity to build their business with bigots. As for real news, it is obvious that it is cheaper to pound to death sensationalism than to do real investigative reporting. As long as profit is the motive, the media will provide what their audience wants, even if it is full of falsehoods to reinforce the irrational positions of anti-science and bigotry. If only we could require any network with "news" as a part of their name to deliver at least 50% new material as the label suggests. Maybe require them to have a name that better describes the program lineup, for instance FOX News could be more properly named "Republican Advocacy Television" or RAT for short. Then viewers would understand what to expect. Please, I look forward to suggestions for renaming other networks.
I am 70, guess you haven't been around as long. Since most drunk drivers got that way at establishments that serve alcohol, the best enforcement is to get them as they leave the location, before they cause an accident. I applaud Duluth police for aggressively trying to stop DUI at the source. It is much easier to identify intoxicated behavior while walking to a car than after they start driving, this is much better than stopping everyone at a check point, something common in the 60's and 70's.
