Mom Apologizes for Son Who Set Teen on Fire

You called me stupid. I'm so hurt. I can see having a reasonable discussion with you is out of the question. Idiot.  (Nov 17, 2009 | post #7)

Mom Apologizes for Son Who Set Teen on Fire

I think you're skirting the issue. He may have hung around with bad kids, he may have been in trouble. I don't know, as I don't know him personally. However, the kids that set him on fire did so because he did something about him stealing something from him. So basically you're saying it's okay to set someone on fire if they call the police on you for stealing from them, or it's okay to set someone on fire for not choosing their friends well, or getting in trouble with the police. You obviously know this kid personally, so my guess is you have some personal vendetta against him or his family. Judge, jury, and executioner.  (Nov 16, 2009 | post #5)

Mom Apologizes for Son Who Set Teen on Fire

Why do you say that? I guess you think he should just hand over his personal belongings to a bunch of bullies.  (Nov 16, 2009 | post #3)

It may not be much, but at least she's not whining "he's such a good boy, there's no way he could have done this".  (Nov 12, 2009 | post #1)

Obama says all citizens should do community service, join...

You mean like the way they abuse the power they have over my tax dollars? I am legally obliged to pay taxes, and I have no say in how those tax dollars are used, or how the programs that spend those tax dollars dole them out. Isn't this basically the same thing as indentured servitude? I think so.  (Nov 11, 2009 | post #2024)

Obama says all citizens should do community service, join...

"The term indentured servant arose in the context of a system for financing immigration to North America primarily during the colonial period. Europeans who could not afford passage to America sold themselves to merchants and seamen in exchange for transportation to the colonies.[2] This arrangement was spelled out in a contract—called an indenture—in which the emigrant agreed to work without compensation for a fixed term, typically four or five years." http://www.pricege n.com/resources/se rvants.htm Again, I don't have a problem with community service. What makes you, or anyone else, think that someone is supposed to get a free ride? Can a system be taken advantage of? Absolutely. That's why I hate working my ass off knowing that my tax dollars are supporting people who think they are entitled to my money. Joe Taxpayer is being raked over the coals, but no one is shedding a tear over that.  (Nov 11, 2009 | post #2023)

An indentured servant is a laborer under contract to an employer for a fixed period of time, typically three to seven years, in exchange for their transportation, food, clothing, lodging and other necessities. Unlike a slave, an indentured servant is required to work only for a limited term specified in a signed contract, which I have no problem with. I find it perfectly reasonable that if I'm going to pay you, that you should provide a service in return.  (Nov 11, 2009 | post #2021)

US Politics

New Dollar Coins a Conspiracy: Palin

For the record, not all athiests feel that part of our history should be removed from anything. The majority of us don't care, and take issue with those who would try to change it.  (Nov 11, 2009 | post #245)

It's only slavery if you're not being compensated for it.  (Nov 11, 2009 | post #2015)

I wasn't aware that the only people suckin' on the government teet were of any particular race. So, I guess that makes you the racist. I didn't say "get a job", which they should. I said they should be required to do community service. If I'm required to help those less fortunate than myself, then those I'm helping should be happy to give something to their community in return. Instead, the majority of them will sit on their collective assess and watch tv, sell drugs, drive a nicer car than I do, and make no attempt whatsoever to help themselves. I don't understand the bitterness towards those who have more. If no one had more, who would be taking care of the less fortunate? My problem is that so many of the less fortunate choose to live the way they do. There will always be someone who has more than me, and someone who has less. We are not all equal, we are not all alike, and no matter how much of my money the government takes from me and gives to the less fortunate, they will still never be like me. They will not be successful, and they will not be satisified. The will still be pathetic, miserable people who have no direction or aspiration in their lives. Have a nice day.  (Nov 11, 2009 | post #2004)

Why Suzanne Somers loves bioidentical hormones

Dying to be Young... I haven't read this whole thread, but anyone who takes OTC supplements should watch the episode of Dying to be young on Dr. G. The episode is about a woman in Orlando who took about 40 supplements a day, including DHEA. I just watched it last night, so it should roll around again soon.  (Nov 11, 2009 | post #65)
