How do you pay a society back for killing someone?

What am I teaching a fcking class? They let her plead to felony murder and she got 20 years to life. You don't like it change the law. I'm not standing up for her either, I'm merely saying according to the law she paid her debt to society. Fox News is merely using this as a vehicle to slam a liberal university and nothing more.

WASHINGTON (AP)- Already reeling from a pair of scandals, the Internal Revenue Service is drawing new criticism over plans to hand out millions of dollars in employee bonuses.
The Obama administration has ordered agencies to cancel discretionary bonuses because of automatic spending cuts, but the IRS says it's merely following legal obligations under a union contract.
The agency is about to pay $70 million in employee bonuses, said Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over the IRS.
Grassley says his office has learned that the IRS was to execute an agreement with the employees' union Wednesday to pay the bonuses. Grassley says the bonuses should be canceled under an April directive from the White House budget office.
"The IRS always claims to be short on resources," Grassley said. "But it appears to have $70 million for union bonuses. And it appears to be making an extra effort to give the bonuses despite opportunities to renegotiate with the union and federal instruction to cease discretionary bonuses during sequestration."

How nice for them. I'm sure Obama is okay with it since the sky is no longer falling.
Grassley is talking bullsh*t! like idiot teabagger Sean Duffy was last night in calling out chief financial officer of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mr. Agostini for giving out high-priced salaries to their officers of the new consumer advocate bureau under the belt-tightening excesses of the sequester. Someone should have asked Charles Grassley why he didn't cut his own salary , big bonus perks as a Congressman or the big paybacks that he receives from his Corporate lobbyist 'donor'?

In 2008 with his reverb/digital delay sound system and his rock star light show the president drew a cheering crowd of 200,000 here in Germany. Today with his popularity waning, the big stage gone, he draws a measly 6,000. To make matters worse the setting sun quickly put a glare on the teleprompter causing the once god booming voice to stutter and stammer as he tried to finish the speech.

Wrong again tubby but keep tying, there must be someone here that believes your nonsense.

And beyond cable there is satellite to consider and all those magnificent devices that have come along since.

Your IQ is slipping precipitously.

NY Times - U.S. Presses Taliban on Qatar Office in Bid to Save Talks: http://tinyurl.com/k34jrad

"The Afghan government, furious that assurances from the Americans that the Taliban would not use the Doha office for political or fund-raising purposes had been flouted, suspended bilateral security talks with the Americans earlier Wednesday and said they would not send their peace emissaries to Qatar to talk to the Taliban until there was a change."

This is the Magic Negro's pal:
http://voices.yahoo.com/who-bill-ayers-210214...
"In the 2003 DVD production of The Weather Underground, Bill Ayers admits, "Whenever we put a bomb in a public space, we had figured out all kinds of ways to put checks and balances on the thing and also to get people away from it, and we were remarkably successful." Still there were injuries to people as well as destruction to property.
In his book, Fugitive Days: A Memoir, Ayers details his experience of planting bombs and living on the run from the FBI. He shows how the pacifism of his youth turned into more militant behavior."
Wiki - Bill Ayers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Ayers
"Ayers had previously been a roommate of Terry Robbins, a fellow militant who was killed in 1970 along with Ayers' girlfriend Oughton and one other member in the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion, while constructing anti-personnel bombs intended for a non-commissioned officer dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
Two major decisions came out of the "War Council." The first was to immediately begin a violent, armed struggle (e.g., bombings and armed robberies) against the state without attempting to organize or mobilize a broad swath of the public. The second was to create underground collectives in major cities throughout the country."
http://sayanythingblog.com/entry/a_timeline_o...
"October 20, 1981 – Brinks robbery in which several members of the Weather Underground stole over $1 million from a Brinks armored car near Nyack, New York. The robbers murdered 2 police officers and 1 Brinks guard. Several others were wounded.
1981 “Guilty as hell*. Free as a bird. America is a great country,” Ayers said when interviewed by David Horowitz."
So you pin everything the Weathermen did on Ayers?
