Ugh, I meant "hurtful." Not helpful.
No, there's a lot of information, if you just go read it. There's testimony that he was exchanging IMs with the ex-boyfriend (thinking it was the woman) where they discussed exactly what he would do to the woman. There was never any testimony by anyone that he suspected this was anything but two consenting adults… Read more
I think you're guessing wrong. There was no evidence that he knew this was non-consensual. In fact, he exchanged IMs with someone who thought he was the woman, where it was outlined exactly what eventually happened. But, just as with having sex with a passed-out person, you have more responsibility than thinking… Read more
I agree - the converse of these statements can be very helpful. As a religious person, I try to avoid these trite sayings. My neighbor, who is Greek Orthodox, lost her husband to suicide a few weeks ago. She told me that someone had said to her "Sometimes people are too ill for God to help on earth, so he brings… Read more
A very late suggestion - assign him the big-picture jobs, and take on the detail work yourself. So he loads the dishwasher and wipes the counters, and you wipe the cabinet faces and move the toaster. Read more
Just because bigots have gotten smarter doesn't mean it isn't wrong. By your logic, it would be okay for the baker to deny an inter-racial couple a wedding cake because it's their business. Those are the slaps in the face that continued for African-Americans long after "equality" was legislated. Read more
Discrimination is discrimination. Pointing fingers and saying that isn't wrong because African Americans suffered so much is bull. The Civil Rights Act was won with the blood and tears of African Americans so that NO ONE ever again had to suffer mistreatment because of someone else's prejudice. Read more
I was discussing this with my 13-year old daughter this morning. She's upset because one friend called another friend a slut. I asked, "What makes Autumn think Lisa is a slut?" and my daughter said something like, she wears shirts that show her cleavage. I had to explain to my daughter that I don't approve of… Read more
So should we set up "gays only" seating in restaurants? Ensure the gays sit at the back of the bus, but give up their seats to tired straight people if the bus is full? "Gays only"restrooms? Read more
You can refuse service based on behavior - I won't allow you to swear at my staff. I won't allow you to dump food on the floor and grind it into the carpet. I won't serve you if you don't have on clothing comporting to the dress code.You can't refuse service because of a protected factor, such as race, sex,… Read more
Yes, and businesses all the time have increases in costs, which they then pass on to customers by raising prices. Papa John's expected cost to offer its current full time employees health care is 14 cents per pizza. Most customers wouldn't even notice if they raised it 25 cents, or (gasp) a dollar.
The police would not maintain a photo of a suspected runaway.
You are absolutely correct. Even if Ariel Castro had opened the door, unless they saw or heard something that indicated there was an imminent danger, they would not be able to enter without a warrant. I am sure that there are some people in this world who voluntarily crawl around wearing leashes. Read more
Baby Nero, now 5 years old. Lovable lunk of flesh.
And I apologize for sounding harsh with you. I was irritated with someone else and lashed out at you.
Excuse me, but this student didn't miss any assignments. She contacted her professors at the beginning of the term, and requested permission to make up any homework or tests missed due to pregnancy related issues, such as medical appointments and her actual delivery. Three of her professors said no problem. The… Read more
