    A counter protest would just make an even worse spectacle out of the funeral. Would it be too much to ask for the girl to have a funeral in peace without a bunch screaming of idiots?

    BTW I know violence is bad but I'd pay good money to see a close up of a sniper shot that took out Phelp's head in an explosion of brain, bone, and blood! And then watch another one piss his or her pants.
    You DO know that the metric system has equal legal standing with the English system in the U.S., right?

    I wish you were kidding, but that wouldn't surprise me. Some of the Fundie Christians claim that God loves everyone and then shows bigotry toward the largest and oldest Church in the Christian world...

    I think that in order to have a crazy lunatic stalker that will kill you, you have to be interesting. Phelps and his family are just greedy money grubbing con artists abusing the system.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Once again Arizona shows it's legislators will do what is necessary vs. waiting on our federal legislators that are worthless as a tit on a boar hog. God help those that try and strike this down.
    I could not agree more. I was born and raised in California more than a few years back when it was a great state and not overrun with the far left Liberals that have wrecked it.

    I lived in Arizona for most of the last 20 years and found myself feeling the pride I once felt as a Californian. I was able to meet and get to know many Local, County, State, and Federal elected office holders and I was inspired to get into politics myself by what I saw in some that admired, and because of what I knew about some others who were less impressive.

    I value my time in that State and am proud to have been a part of it. I expect they will continue to show the way as California continues to slide down hill in every important area. From #1 just 25 years ago in education to next to last ahead of only Mississippi I believe. Economically it's bleeding businesses because of wild and crazy Liberal regulations, Sanctuary Cities and environmentally ill phony BS about climate change being other than natural.

    Go Arizona, and keep up the good work!

    Only a stupid person does something so obviously in their own best interest. Either they are not smart enough to recognize the advantages, not smart enough to learn it, or, as stated above, they are just too stupid to care.

    Or the change would result in more trouble/cost than it is worth. Much of our stuff, including mechanical and electrical systems, road signs, measuring equipment, etc., are all in the English system. Converting to the metric system would cost a lot of money, even if it was slowly implemented (although, in some places it is happening anyway). Which means that instead of people having to learn one simple system, they have to learn both. Now, this is pretty much happening as well, despite the standard in the US being the English system. But it does come with a lot of issues that cannot simply be put as "too stupid to learn". Especially since many people in the US know both systems, most just use the English system far more often than they do the metric system.

    James, only a lib would want to ban hate speech, only a conservative, (during the Bush years) would call it treason.
