Drink pop, commit crimes. Always blame something else- don't ever hold yourself accountable. Jerk. Hang him.

Here we go again with the Twinkie defence. When are we going to start making people responsible for their own actions?

Don't you know it's not their fault; never is.. they're the victim here..

Knew a girl which was taking those diet supplements as a way to stay up at night to do work at home.. She ended up being bi-polar, but they think because of how much she was taking helped the bi-polar disease kick in.. There was a time for about a month that things were REALLY odd with her.. She was taking 3-4 times the recommended amount..

Are You kidding I didn't do it cause I drank to much caffeine? When does personal responsibility ever come into play. If you do the crime own up to it don't blame it on everything else.

Being that Cubano is very concerned about helping animals, I have rescued many animals over the years including horses. One day I had an idea that it would be wise to mate some of the horses. Since my Sticky AngeI Wings (AKA Big Beth from Tulsa) is getting old, its just a matter of time before I cash her in to get some serious coin from the glue factory. Lets face it, a horse as big as her would fetch a mighty dollar in this economy. I figure is she can squeeze out a baby horse, then in a few years the horse will be as fat as her mother and I can double my dollar.

So I picked up this male horse one day. It turns out the horse is of a Cuban breed named the equi-fag stallions. This particular horse was always very assertive too, always trying to hump Cubano's legs and sporting a horse-hard-on. I put my Sticky AngeI Wings and the Cuban horse in a pen together one day, expecting some instant copulation, but nothing happened. Weeks and weeks went by, but that Cuban horse had no interest in Big Beth what so ever. Finally out of frustration, I put the Cuban horse into a pen with other male horses since nothing was happening between him and my Sticky AngeI Wings. About 10 minutes later, I hear a whinny of sheer terror! I ran into the barn and to my horror, the Cuban horse had pinned another male horse against the wall and was trying desperately to mate with it. The helpless male horse was whinnying again and again with the sound of absolute torture, a sound I dare not repeat to anyone. I immediately split the two horses apart by zapping the Cuban horse with a cattle prod and the next day I shipped that damn Cuban horse down to Miami where it belongs.

Our country is turning into a band of idiots. Use any excuse and there will be a low-life attorney out there to defend you. If you want to become famous - so something worthwhile with your life. Just when you think you have heard it all, something like this comes along. What an idiotic defense. Run home to your mama and tell her you think your wife is dead? Probably the only time he thought!

Uh huh. If I believe his defense, I also believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Great Pumpkin, and other fairy tales. Hope he gets exactly what he deserves. That defense is so lame, it needs a wheelchair!

Gimme a break! I drink coffee every morning and get the jitters from it along with 200 million other Americans. I've never killed anyone! Does it make me a junkie for being addicted to caffeine. It most certainly does because my body doesn't care if the drug is legal or not, but I still choose to drink it. From a legal standpoint,'the coffee made me do it' will never fly unless you impanel one dumb jury. Yes, it is classified by the DSM as a mental disorder. The problem with every single so-called "disease" listed in the DSM is they have zero scientific proof to back up their claims. Think you're shy, no you actually have "socialized anxiety disorder". They have not been able to demonstrate that there is any biological difference between a person diagnosed as mentally ill and a person that is not. No bloodtest, X-RAY, CAT scan, MRI, PET scan or any other objective diagnostic test has ever even once proven that any chemical imbalance exists in anyone. Although, this is the claim you will here all the time when pharmachetical companies market anti-depressant drugs. What they don't tell you is that the general population commits suicide at a rate of 11 per 100,000 people while those on "anti-depressant" drugs commit suicide at a rate of 702 per 100,000 people. Some wonder drug. They call it a mental disorder if you can't deal with stress. Most people with common sense call it life. The problem with psychiatrists is they use the scientific method in reverse. They say you must have a disease if you aren't happy all the time. They put you on a drug (and by the way they doctor the drug trials, but that's a different story) that dulls the emotions (both happiness and sadness) and then they say,'See you must have had something'. Well, that's not science. Psychiatry is not science and it is not medicine, it is a farce and an alliance between pharmachuticals and fake-doctors or should I say fake scientists to push drugs. This story may on the surface seem like some guy trying to get off for murdering his wife, but underneath there are much broader society wide implications. When deciding whether something is a mental disorder they do so by taking a vote. Disease by democracy. This is not science. Science is always objective, never subjective. It either is something or it isn't. It is a vitamin deficiency. Give those suffering emotional problems the vitamins and minerals they are deficient in and they get better. Give those suffering emotional problems powerful drugs and they not only get worse they become dependant on a drug that is harmful to their health, and no I'm not a scientoligist.
