3 Illinois Teens Arrested After Food Fight.
As The Boyfriend says, "If you treat kids like prisoners, they're gonna ACT like prisoners."
Boy, am I glad I'm not in high school any more.
Democratic debate results in people arguing like children.
I think we can safely say that a Democrat is NOT the best option for this country.
Also, has anyone else noticed that the debates seem to be happening a lot earlier than usual? Didn't they previously start these things about 9 months beforehand? Did I miss something?
Granted, I was only legal to vote in the last presidential election (I *barely* missed 2000) (do you feel old, yet?), so it's not like I've paid close attention to the other ones. But this seems weird to me.
As an aside, there's a video in which John Edwards decides that he's the authority on what's a right and what's a priviledge. He lists things as follows:
College Education - Right
Healthcare - Right
Liveable Wage - Right
OWNING A HANDGUN - PRIVILEDGE
Access to the Internet - Right
He got it all backwards. Who's suprised? Anyone? Show of hands?
EDIT: The Boyfriend just sent me a link to an Edwards interview on YouTube.
Death Row inmate solicits jokes to tell as his last words.
People call this action "sick". Uh...he shot people to death. Would you expect anything less from him?
Common sense, people. He's not sorry for what he did. Apparently he did something bad enough that people feel that he doesn't deserve to live (don't get me started on that...), and they're surprised that he's doing something socially unacceptable?
Seriously, guys: DUH.
Hand, meet forehead. Head, meet desk.
Oh, and to all you people out there who think the death penalty is an appropriate punishment? Here's a message from one of the condemned:
"They think they're killing me. They think they're punishing me. They've already punished me. I've already had 16 years of punishment. They're releasing me. They're letting me go. That's helping me out. That's the way I look at it."
You want to punish someone, you don't kill them. That's the easy way out, for both you and them. I don't believe in torture, but boredom for the rest of your life is a pretty appropriate punishment for some of these guys. We just have to convert our prisons from Club Med Lite into an actual, you know, deterrent.
