Re: The Judicial Concepts of Entering a Plea and Making Bail Are Improper

So which crimes could one be charged with and not be eligible for release? None? I'd expect not considering one of your earlier replies. Murder? Rape? Child molestation? Kidnapping? Petty theft? Or would it have to be handled on a case by case basis? And which guidelines do you use to determine who ...

Re: The Judicial Concepts of Entering a Plea and Making Bail Are Improper

Bob,

Please explain what crimes one could be guilty of and be eligible for release without bail and which charges would put one beyond such.

And you're saying that pleas should be removed and every case treated as a plea of not guilty?

Re: The Philosophical Absurdity of What America Has Become

Politics in the US is not a philosophical absurdity. It is the natural result of the slow erosion of the citizenry's will and ability to check the growth in federal powers, being driven by their lack of interest in what is truth, being able to be enthusiastically led by their ignorance and fear, as ...

Re: ~ The Case For Socialism ~

+1 to Leo Not to mention that nature has produced a number of things that are poisonous to humans, among other animals. I'm not saying any genetic modification is beneficial, but we must not make the mistake of assuming every genetic modification is harmful. GMOs are not inherently dangerous just be...

Re: Does the U.S. want Trump’s Muslim solution or the vigilantism the E. U. is moving to?

This is why I'm for concealed carry especially for women. Instead of being raped or molested or otherwise attacked and being helpless, I'd rather she pull out a .38 and put these fucks in a grave. Dead offenders can't repeat. Muslim women in America are subjected every day to all manner of abuse in...

Re: Does the U.S. want Trump’s Muslim solution or the vigilantism the E. U. is moving to?

I do not see how we can de-program Muslims from without and would think it could only be done effectively from within. It would have to be both ways, but you can't simply expect them to come from such an insanely paternalistic and mysogynist culture and assimilate without some outside stimulus. If ...

Re: Rule of Man ... Rule of Law

Torture is not invalidation. You invalidate a person's worth by ignoring them, or killing them. When you torture you are giving a person lots of time and attention, thus demonstrating that the person tortured has something you want. So if I torture my dog I'm validating him just because I'm showing...

Re: Rule of Man ... Rule of Law

So if I torture my dog I'm validating him just because I'm showing him attention? Ha! How fucking stupid. Sick, yes. Morally inexcusable, yes. Fucking stupid, no. A dog which is routinely mistreated will not seek to escape from its torment, even when given an opportunity to do so. Neither will a ch...

Re: Does the U.S. want Trump’s Muslim solution or the vigilantism the E. U. is moving to?

Vigilantes are a response to a percieved lack of protection. The political correctness that the left hides behind is hamstringing the police's ability to pursue and prosecute offenders. The fact that these immigrants come from a culture where their view of women is entirely different. You can't simp...

Re: Get OUT of Your Head - Get INTO Your Body

You should take a trip to either Colorado or Oregon, and partake of the herbs of life. Of course, organic vegetables, and exercise also help. So you're doing great with the exercise, don't forget to eat Non-GMO Organic whole foods, nothing processed in factories. The herbs in question are apoptotic...
