So in your universe the only people who do anything wrong are crazy? Either they know it's wrong and don't do it, or they do it because they're crazy and don't know it's wrong? Are those the two options? I forgot, no one ever does anything they know is wrong. Thanks for pointing that out. That was the gaping hole in my position that I was missing this whole time.

Your words from a couple days ago:

"Once again, sam skips the debate and launches right into hurling insults."

Apparently what's good for the goose isn't good for the beer-swilling redneck.

Bad news: Ron Jeremy went to the hospital.

Good news: He and his moneymaker are going to be fine.

How he got to be a porn star I will never know. I mean, I know he's "gifted" but so are lots of other guys who are much easier to look at.

You know why he's called the Hedgehog, right? And it's not about his looks.

Murdering your daughter is crazy, no matter the "reasoning"
Murdering your daughter because it's tradition is just as crazy as murdering you daughter because the dog told you to do it.
Like I said, I understand your point, but I dont buy it, or agree with it.
If a person cannot understand that murder is wrong, then they are crazy, I dont care if they are a sociopath, a gang banger or goat herder.

How can you say that his self-view is of no consequence? I just don't get how you think you're going to solve anything with that attitude.

And I'm also not understanding what you're not buying. You don't think that you should try and understand the motivation of these crazies so that maybe you could fine a way to stop said craziness?

I agree that murder is wrong; it totally violates the Golden Rule and I don't understand how others don't feel that innately. But just my sense of outrage at this inablity in others is not going to solve anything.

Each culture define "crazy" in its own terms.

Go find a hard copy of the DSM, the handbook the mental health industry uses to make diagnoses. If you poke around in it, easpecially near the end you will find mental/psychological/psychiatr ic illnesses described that only exist in limted cultures: the last time I looked there was some syndrome that was limited to Pacific Islanders. My point is that there is no absolute when defining pathology. You need to factor your own bias into teh assessment.

I find honor killings abhorrent and offensive, but not crazy. There is a difference.

Hey, if us ladies expect men to make eye contact, doesn't Mr. Jeremy have the right to expect the same?

He wasn't always fat and old. I met him a couple years ago, saw him at a movie theater. Didn't shake his hand, though...

Yeah, I guess I prefer a higher arousal-to-freak/humor ration than he provides.

I don't want people going to prison for 25 years for stealing pizza. THat's a stupid waste of money.
A set of golf clubs can run you upwards of over a grand. That is NOT "petty" theft.

And we aren't sending people to prison for 25 years for stealing a piece of pizza. We are sending them to prison for 25 years for stealing a car, getting out and burglarizing a house, getting out and raping a woman, getting out and THEN stealing a pizza. I'm all for that.

There was a tragic case here a while ago that involved a career criminal who's been in and out of jail most of his life. During his latest crime, while he was burglarizing a house, a 16 yr old girl walked in on him and he murdered her.

Habitual offenders need to be removed from society. Think burglary is a "non-violent" crime? Tell that to the people who've walked in on one.

What demographic is the primary consumer of porn? Do you think they care what the dude looks like?

According to what I found about 30% of the porn audience is female. And when I have watched on occasion it mattered to me what both/all participants looked like. And when I was in porn I refused to work with anyone I wouldn't do in real life.

Nick has no interest in lesbian porn. He can't really put into words why. I was surprised - I just found this out very recently. I happen to think lesbian porn is hot!

I am not trying to solve the problem. I believe it's too big a job for one person, or 1 state to address. I think it will take a nationwide effort, heck maybe a global one, but I dont know what that effort entails. So if you come up with a solution, I will support it.

I was simply stating my views.
