Andy, oh, you mean we don't have 'equality under the law' like they taught me in grade school? HowRead More disappointing. My evening is ruined now. And what exactly is a 'good lawyer'?

Do you have a better suggestion for making it more equitable?
OldTimer April 18, 2014 at 09:29 pm
Well, we can start by asking how some judge pulled a 12-year sentence out of the broom closet for aRead More crime where no one was killed or seriously maimed or injured. Not saying this guy isn't a jerk and doesn't deserve hard time. I've read many times about how some numbskull got behind the wheel of a car three sheets to the wind and hits somebody in a crosswalk or knocked a bicyclist 30 feet in the air and killed him and walks away with 4 years in the slammer. IMO he should get the 12 years before this clown. He killed a man! Sentencing should some rhyme or reason, don't you agree? If the judge doesn't like your hairstyle should he or she be able to tack on another 5 years? All I want is some reason employed for such serious considerations. This guy's only friend in life might be his mom, but that's no reason to toss him in the slammer and for all practical purposes destroy the key. I could fully understand if he wasted somebody. How much time do you think some slob gets for unloading his 15 round clip in the air on 4th of July? 12 years? Not even close. Probably 18 months and an early release.

The real answer is prevent breaches like this is uninterrupted end to end encryption between the PED/swipe and the processor.

i find it telling that Dawn uses an article praising the schools her child will attend to, instead,Read More denigrate those schools, insult the teachers there, and post misinformation in order to advance whatever her agenda may be. Puzzling that she can't celebrate an achievement.
MayMom April 18, 2014 at 10:52 pm
Dawn, the answer to your questions about the grade level these tests were taken can be found by aRead More quick search on test requirements for Capo. Why are we so quick to blame the teachers or district for any problems. What I see as a problem is the lack of involvment on the parents part. Elementary schools have two conferences a year. If you don't attend those and don't bother to keep track of your childs work through the year, that isn't the teacher or districts fault. That is a parent fault. If you attend these conferences and your child still has a problem, then you can schedule another meeting with your teacher. In middle and high school, you can get an email notice each night showing your childs grades. If you see something wrong and don't do anything, that is your fault. There is no reason students would get to their senior year and be that far behind. I saw two parents come into school this week that didn't know what their teachers name was. I would hope they would figure that out before the end of the school year. My children are all doing great with their public school education. Why, because our teachers are fantastic. I'm not saying things are perfect in our schools, but they certainly aren't as bad as these posts make them out to be.

It may not be entrapment, but that is because the person refilling his drink may have been unaware that it was not permitted, and therefore did not knowingly commit a crime.

OldTimer April 18, 2014 at 11:54 am
Megan, the average price of gas NATIONALLY has skyrocketed over the last 10 years. Review the priceRead More charts. All public information. The California electeds love higher gas prices because the State collects the tax based on the PERCENT of the standing price per gallon. The higher the price the more you pay the governor. So they will use any old excuse to make you pay more. I expect gas to hit $5 a gallon this summer, even with the claim that we (the US) is producing more oil than ever. Supply and demand???? Sure. Pull my other thumb!!!

As I get older I have come to realize rarely are things the way they are fed to us or as they appear on the surface.

And why weren't they on top of the former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan who shot to death three non-Jews in an anti-semitic attempt to kill Jews in Overland Park?
