In the US today, if you are a protestor, you are also a "low level terrorist". Do you like a particular independent candidate? Do you openly support this independent candidate? Congratulations! You are now considered a terrorist by the Pentagon! Certain sections of NDAA 2012 and 2013 are absolutely abhorrent.

I feel that it is more of a mental healthcare problem than a gun problem. I'm not too sure as to what can be done to help; I'm not a doctor. But as a concerned citizen, I'd like to see the issue of mental health discussed more often, as it appears to be a recurring factor in these shootings.

1) insulation; energy output from sun, orientation of the earth, and earth's orbit. 2) Greenhouse gasses; water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, and a few other i can't remember. 3) Particulates and aerosols; volcanoes, asteroids, meteorites, and industrial pollution. the position of the continents plays into it was well. These are the factors that drive our planets temperatures. Thank you for your time

Quit over-serving customers, it's really that simple. If they come into your bar already drunk, deny them service. If they try to buy more booze at a store and are already drunk, deny them service.

Several thousand sorties, several hundred thousand flight hours, and 6 fatalities since coming into service in 2007. That's pretty darn good for a new air-frame.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess he won't be placed on a sex offender registry. Keeping with he topic of sex offenders, how does it feel to not know if you have one of these sickos living in your neighborhood?

Quit over-serving people. Problem solved. You tend to make better choices when buzzed in comparison to when you're absolutely wasted. Taking advantage of an alcoholic isn't something to be proud of.

John C. Reilly definitely needs to produce the "Check it Out With Doctor Steve Brule" film. The budget would be so low, it would be impossible not to make a profit.

I'm not feeling very optimistic about the future of Syria. Will the violence end after Assad and his regime are gone? Or will the three sects who are barely cooperating with each other begin vying for supremacy? Magic eight ball says "outlook not so good"

Can't go to their teacher, can't go to their parents, probably won't help going to the cops either. Are we going to have to wait for a few mass-stabbings for this to be viewed as an important issue?

Northern State Hospital, Sedro-Woolley, Washington. Formerly a mental health facility, now an intensive inpatient drug-rehab facility. The moment I walked through the door (wasn't a patient), I got some seriously weird vibes.

A slap in the face to all tribes in North and South America. I love to high-five every person that wears the t-shirt that proclaims "Homeland Security Circa 1492". They certainly know about world history better than others.
