    Well StormR, I am sure that if you were plucked from your country and taken to Iran because someone suspected you of something, you would be more than a little upset if they waterboarded you for weeks in between throwing you in a barren, cold cage.

    Fifth, I'm not convinced legalisation would actually take organised crime out of the picture anyway.

    When has organized crime every been taken out of any picture? Some will go legit. Others will lose a cash cow. I believe the effects on organized crime will be largely negative.

    Third, the number of people smoking it would increase,

    Well if that comes with a decrease in alcohol drinkers it might do a lot of good, even on the roads.

    But basically why I am against pot being criminalized is that the government and society has no business stopping me doing what does not directly harm any of them. Some people have decided that there would be a negative effect on economy for legalization, but their profits over my rights?? No way.

    The American brain-washing machine is working really, really well. I should think it may only be one or two generations away from producing a whole slew of Shiro Ishiis and Josef Mengeles.

    I never said sunlight was a powerful and concentrated energy source Willi. I just pointed out they could get a lot more of it if they put the collectors over the parking lots as well, and looking at the pic, over the ice house as well.

    It would further keep their customers out of the snow and rain.

    See! This is what you get when you falsely believe heavy fines will deter drink drivers

    DUI accidents have been low for a very long time, even before the no tolerance policy. At this point you could threaten death and still not make a dent in the small percentage of DUI accidents. If you want to live in a police state, I am sure there is one that already exists that you could leave for and be happy. But we would break the bank enlisting enough cops to do as you suggest and we would be living in a much poorer police state.

    What I think you need to realize is that there are a small number of alcoholics who are simply not in control of themselves. I think its sad that those few idiots have become the poster boy for people like myself who used to drink and drive within previous legal limits just fine.

    Accident? I was thinking gross negligence.

    The most solid and concerning reason to be so against is the price tag: $3,000,000,000 U.S. And taxpayers will be footing that bill, but taxpayers will not profit later unless they have something to do with the Olympics, and that will be a relative handful.

    3 billion U.S.! That is near the GDP of Liechtenstein! Its outrageous!

    Concerning the term "eco-terrorist", it is interesting to note that wiki has separate entries for "environmental terrorism" and "eco-terrorism". The first is defined by wiki as those who damage the environment and the second leaning toward the FBI definition as those who attack environmental terrorists, using the term "eco" as short for "ecological causes".

    And yes, while the FBI may have made a definition for "eco-terrorist" since when is the FBI on the level of Webster? Am I going to let the FBI define terms for me? I may be mindful of FBI definitions, but that does mean I agree or accept. I don't.

    But at the very least I think no one should dismiss the fact if Watson is defined as a terrorist of sorts, its based on the terrorism of the environmental terrorists. As always go to the source. Treat the disease, not the symptoms.

    Imagine how much sun light they could gather if they put solar collectors over the parking areas.

    Also, its too bad they did not put the refrigerators and freezers in a separate area that basically uses the outside temperature in winter to keep cool. Its rather silly when you think about it, but they heat the store for the customers and the fridges and freezers have to now fight that heat to keep stuff cold. Warm and cold areas should be separated. In fact, it might be economical to use the stored snow to keep the fridges and freezers cold.

    Outlaw guns in the USA and guess who will still be using them? Answer: The ones most likely to kill people with them. The criminals.

    But I have heard nothing suggesting Ciancia obtained his guns illegally. Nothing to suggest he was a career criminal.

    Most people are murdered by their spouses. Most murders in America are done using guns. Most spouses are not career criminals, nor are most spousal murders committed by career criminals. They are usually law abiding citizens labelled as criminals after the fact. Since guns make killing easy, without guns, many would give up their plan to murder. Some will of course turn to knives, etc, but its easier to run away from knives, etc. or hide behind a door while making a cell phone call to the police.

    The occasional "deranged" citizen will find other methods of impact for their messages. It needs not be with a gun.

    But a gun makes all the difference. Facing facts, Ciancia could have done a hell of a lot more damage, but his targets were not passengers. It it were, it would have been a bloodbath.

    They have letter prepared from the guy in case he died, and they still can't figure out why he did it?

    Are they that stupid or that self-righeous?

    Nor should they! If he were a REAL man, a REAL hero, he would and face the charges.

    And wind up like Bradley Manning? That would not be heroism. It would be stupidity.

    “He had an opportunity, if what he was was a whistleblower to pick up the phone and call the House Intelligence Committee..."

    So one of our law makers thinks justice should be dependent on timing. It does not get too much more self-righteous than that.

    No judge ever finds a reasonable excuse for violating a law. Compliance with a law is not voluntary. Judges on occasion find new ways of interpreting an existing law.

    Nice semantics.

    If a judge can justify a homicide, I am sure one can justify the actions of Paul Watson against criminals running rampant on the high seas.

    Sorry, I still don't get the morbid attempt at humor.

    You think your right to take water and breast milk on a commercial flight are things to laugh about? Or you think I do?

    Well I can tell you straight up that I don't.

    How long has this been going on? I know, all I do is complain on the internet. I should have done more. I hoped this silliness would get clear up with out shooting people. But that is not what happened.

    We are all going to have buck up and live with the fact of what did happen. That said, I am not about to pin a medal on his chest, but I sure hope the message got through and is heeded.

    Stories like this are a threat to them and they want it to go away quickly.

    I don't. I despise all these people who sow mistrust and invade personal privacy, I don't care where they come from.

    That said, spooks don't always share their information and activities with the leaders of their countries. I don't think the CIA tells Obama everything anymore than I think the BND tells Merkel everything.

    So, it's not ok to throw small glass bottles into the decks of ships, but it is ok to throw grenade harpoons at defenseless animals.

    Or better yet, its okay for the mafia to make a mint catching sharks, slashing off their top fins, and throw them back in the water to die, and do this on the level of thousands of tons.

    Apparently, the lack of sharks can be very bad for coral reefs, with indirect but severe impact. But hey, at least the mafia is getting rich right? How dare Paul Watson try to interrupt their profit incentive?

    the word eco-terrorist isn't used, because by definition, that would be attributed to the whalers not their defenders.

    A sensible definition anyway, since they are not attacking the ecosystem. Perhaps the detractors would be happy with the term "eco-terrorist terrorist"?

    It doesn't really matter what you all think, the law is the law.

    @Justin Everett--The law is the law until a judge find a reasonable excuse for violating it.

    But if you want to take an absolutist line, I have a request: Could we go after the mafia first, then go after the Robin Hoods second?
