    Depends on "how much". xD

    Honestly though, it is best to turn it in. If the "large sum" was only a few hundred or so and didn't have any identification information of the previous owner then it's "finder's keepers". If any amount of money has indentity information on it I would definitely turn it in no problem. If you find a bag of money, you'd better turn it in as it could be a companies bank deposit, ransom money, or "crime" money.... and "crime" money is never claimed by criminals unless they're really stupid.

    The Chinese government should inform their fishermen that they should not intrude into other country's territorial waters or be poaching endangered species.

    Am I sensing sarcasm in that sentence?

    I only enjoy TLOTR extended versions. And the extended versions are the only ones I buy as The Hobbit series starts to finish up. I think the budget costs are running up way too high, but we can believe that it will still be a hit because of its origin and fan base.

    I'm guessing if we all go to see this at the theater the ticket prices will be much higher than expected too.

    The death penalty is too harsh for this situation. It wasn't intentional or pre-meditated. SK's justice system would be shown that they're not beyond making a scapegoat just to appeal to the masses. Leave it at some long decades in prison should be more than enough. The man will have plenty of time to remember what got him in there.

    Awful to hear. And I'd have to agree with Burakumin's line of thought that organized crime could be behind it.

    Ghandi was a great man, but times have changed and things run much differently than the past. Do you even know why the assassin shot Ghandi? Funny that it had to do with Islam. It appeared in that man's perspective that Ghandi was validating submission to Islam by praying at a mosque.

    Because if you lose your humanity along the way, they win. And they're willing to die for their cause.

    And many people are willing to die for our cause too if you haven't noticed. One aspect of humanity is survival. You're not willing to die for your cause. You can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk when it's staring you in the face? Unlike the Islamists, many western countries are fighting them to protect you, and me, and every other democratic society. And believe it or not they seem to be keeping their humanity, (and ours) just fine.

    I know I would become a monster if I had to in order to protect those I love and care for. The only time one's humanity would be lost is when they start randomly picking off innocent people just for the heck of it. Every soldier in our military is doing exactly what your crying about here and yet many still retain their humanity, and still suffer the after affects as well mentally. And it's because in spite of it all, they have something to protect.

    What are we fighting to protect? Remember somebody you don't even know is fighting to protect you, your ability to even post whatever you believe on this site, your ability to walk into a grocery store, a restaurant, a decent job, and not have to worry about running into a group of Islamists kidnapping you on your own street. Nobody is sacrificing their humanity to keep their freedom. They're just becoming more adept at killing off a threat when necessary and then helping those necessarily in need the next. If the Islamists packed their bags and stopped out of the blue and decided it isn't worth killing and oppressing others, many countries wouldn't be sending their militaries over to deal with them now would they? Gitmo would be pretty darned empty now wouldn't it?

    Glad your not in charge of defense for your country. Many countries governments seem to get the picture, and it keeps getting clearer every day for them as these situations keep going on.

    @Laguna, while I don't condone mob violence, did it ever occur to you the reason why the Buddhists mobs are trying to drive out the muslim community is because there were too many cases of muslim men kidnapping and raping Buddhist women and girls then telling the women they're muslim now and have to marry into Islam to keep their "honor"? Same thing is happening in India with the Hindi.

    This and more situations happening around the world in western nations with "recent" converts to Islam keeps re-affirming the cult ideology that Islam promotes instead of prevents. This guy may have been a drug addict (which does cause mental illness), but adding that to Islamic extremism? Like adding oil to fire.

    You can think that all you want but what is the point of keeping a higher standard that results in you losing your life or becoming oppressed by a violent oppenent? Poor peace-loving Ghandi was assassinated by another Hindu whose reasoning was, "What good is non-violent protests while they're using this peaceful inaction to violently massacre us?"

    Even you admitted the extremists will not abide to "better" standards with their prisoners according to the Geneva convention. Believe it or not the fact the prisoners at Gitmo are still ALIVE and can still eat their halal food and are not being forced to convert from Islam or die shows in spite of the haram treatment of female guards working there shows that they've got it leagues better than the people being held by the Islamists.

    So when it comes to the wire with your own life and freedom on the line are you going to go all Buddha and lie down for the hungry tiger to eat you just to maintain your dignity? Or are you going to do what it takes for you to survive and prevent extremist ideology from wiping you out their way?

    Unfortunately when I looked at my ballot choices and read up on the candidates who were running for Congress and Senate, they were for some things I was opposed to and also for some issues I supported as well.

    IE I'm against abortion but do not believe that anyone should touch Roe vs. Wade. People should be able to choose to legally have an abortion, but should not be encouraged to do so nor utterly denied that option. The democrats want to force corporations whose owners do not agree with abortion to finance it by providing it as a "necessary" healthcare option, and republicans are for completely removing it and making abortion illegal. But the thing that scared me was how each one of them was following their party line to the letter, democrats voted the exact same as other democrats and same with the republicans. Like lemmings that couldn't think outside the box and not run the country over a cliff. With parties like this it will take a 3rd party that can be totally bi-partisan oil between the extreme liberals and extreme conservatives.

    No, it's just stating more about border security again. The man was deported, TWICE for felony conviction and still was able to get back into the US. Anyone able to get back into the US illegally obviously can get a gun illegally. I'm not for many gun rights, and the NRA lobbyists have way too much power in our politics, but obviously dangerous people can slip into the US as they please from Mexico.

    Rules of war are for those who follow and abide by the Geneva convention. I don't know if you remember a comment I made earlier about what is going to happen that "civilized" countries are going to become more vicious towards a vicious enemy? Human rights and upholding dignity will only apply to those who choose to abide by it in the first place?

    I've always said that people will only get as much respect and consideration as they give. We've tried it the "proper" and "civilized" way and they responded with exactly the opposite. It has been shown that they refuse the respect and consideration and abuse it because they saw it as "weakness" by the "enemy". So the nice little happy "Lets show that we're better than our enemy" has shown its results. They're stuck in their ways, refuse to improve and bring themselves up out of their own pit so we're going to go down into that pit to eliminate them. This is *reality. This is human nature. People can't change people that don't choose to change on their own.

    In order to survive and maintain our current standards all civilized countries have determined these Islamists aren't worth extending much more respect and consideration once the candle gets burned down to its wick. And more and more candles are being burnt down to it's wick if you haven't noticed.

    Be disgusted all you want, but even you can't change people that don't want to change even if their ways continually harm others. I'm just accepting that fact, you apparently need a lot more time to figure that out.

    And this is how sexual assault against women is treated in Iran. Islamic justice in action folks, and still some people wonder why the women don't speak up when they're raped. Cos they'll be tried for adultery before they'll ever be seen as a victim!!!

    If Islam is so peaceful, then why is there so much turmoil and injustice in Islamic governed nations?

    Aww, sorry I hurt your PC feelings. Facts are, these guys aren't US citizens and are in Gitmo for pretty much participating and instigating in terrorist and war attacks against the citizens of the US.

    I don't think most of them even have had US passports or greencards in the first place. Hence, they're not US citizens. So uh, the US constitution doesn't apply to them. Can you wrap your head around that?

    I'm wondering if it's another spoiled/self-centered/middle~upper class/ bullied emo kid that thinks he'll get back at the world by shooting people he don't like? How many of the school shooters have been female? How many of them have not been of Caucasian descent? How many of them got the weapons from "lawful owning" gun owner parent's or relatives? Some statistics should point out a pattern of what we really need to focus on. Some suburbia communities really have some societal problems that need to be addressed.

    @Scipanthiest, if that is their interrogation techniques I say I'm all for it. Could be much worse imo. In order to break a spy one has to get to them on an emotional level. Those "tactics" appear to hit the right nerves especially with religious fanatics like these. And considering most if not all these guys are not US citizens so therefore do not have "constitutional rights" provided by the US constitution (for US citizens) like they're claiming.

    2nd of all they're really not on US land. We're just using it with Cuba's permission from a long ago agreement. And rights of a POW only go so far... these men are just so twisted up with Islamic indoctrination they won't understand just how sick they are until they're dead and find themselves on the wrong side of the afterlife.

    I say start serving pork and lard in every delicious meal they still get. Deep fried chicken (fried in lard), pork chops for lunch, bacon for breakfast.... oh man those guys eat better than I do!

    2nd of all. They've lost their rights of religious freedom once they violated others rights to religious freedom. Take away someone elses rights you lose yours. Let them understand the clear and hard way. Remember they also get the free healthcare that even regular US citizens can't get...
