    Re: OUTRAGE: Prison Inmates to Get Priority in Swine Flu Vaccine

    If they're disposable and we don't care about their lives, then we should sentence them to death in the first place-- not sentence them to a definite or indefinite prison term and then take a callous attitude to their health. Especially when the health issue in question is communicable diseases that, allowed to run rampant in the prison population, will contribute to the rates of infection in the "law-abiding citizens" that you claim to care about.

    It's one thing to be cavalier about the lives of criminals. Never catch me up in arms about that. But it's another thing to allow your emotions to overwhelm your good sense and promote bad policies that will lead to greater costs, in economic and human terms, in the long run.

    Prisoners don't get priority for vaccines because they deserve it. They get priority because prisons are breeding grounds for diseases that can and will spread to civilian populations if left unchecked; prisoners are not the only people in prison, and not the only people exposed to disease in prison. Prison employees are law-abiding citizens by default, and they get to go home to their law-abiding families every night.

    You want to just put a bullet in their heads and burn the corpses? I'm right there with you. But exposing law-abiding civilians to increased risk of disease and death because of what you think prisoners "deserve" is irrational.

This is often enough to cause a person to lose their home. If I were to lose my home, I would have to leave the area because rents have increased in the years since I started paying for my house to be higher than the payments are.

    Yes, I would have to say it is deserving of the death penalty in those circumstances. Or at least allow me 10 unsupervised minutes in a closed room with no cameras with him.
    it's not his fault that you don't have enough savvy to save your money like a contributing citizen. deal with it. after all, don't people who lose their houses DESERVE to lose them? why did you buy something you couldn't afford?

    If you're able to make payments on your house, I doubt you fall into the category of "poor".

    So you are okay with people stealing cars and place blame for any results on the victim of the theft. Nice. I love the compassion from you, Liblady.

    So that explains why the left is not mad at Barney Franks for his roll in the mortgage crisis. Sure he blocked any attempts to fix the problem before it was unrecoverable, but it's not his fault that people had mortgages. If you lose your house because the market collapsed, it's on you. If your business fails because your customers went out of business when the economy collapsed, it is all on you and no blame is placed on the people who caused the problem in the first place.

    Limousine Liberals. Go figure.

    You're able to make payments on your house, you even have some sort of savings at a bank. You're not poor, you're just exaggerating.

    I was wondering the same thing.

    BREVARD Gunshots rattled a quiet neighborhood near downtown Brevard on Monday afternoon during a shootout that sent one man to the hospital with serious injuries.

    Brevard Police responded to a 911 call of shots fired around 2:52 p.m. in the vicinity of Oakdale and Carver streets, less than a half-mile from downtown, acting Police Chief Dean Galloway said.

    A patrol officer spotted a speeding vehicle near the scene and stopped it on North Caldwell Street, alongside an RBC Centura bank in downtown. The officer discovered a man in the passenger seat with multiple gunshot wounds, Galloway said.

    The victim identified the shooting suspect, who was later found at a home on McMinn Avenue.

    Police charged Ari Damaris Williams, 32, of Lobe Drive, Brevard, with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. He was being held at the Transylvania County Detention Center on an $80,000 secured bond.

    What happened was someone reported the thread and a mod edited it wihout reading.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
