    Government regulations which inhibit competition or bailing out corporations and banks that should be allowed to fail. If you bitched half as much about those things as the welfare deadbeats on the bottom of the socioeconimc ladder, then I might take you somewhat seriously.

    Oh my, you need to put up or shut up now. Where did I bitch about the welfare deadbeats? Please prove the accusation or retract.

    Maybe you should take me a bit more serious?

    You also need to clarify. There are a lot of people who claim to be libertarian who aren’t so I have no idea what you mean by “Government regulations which inhibit competition or bailing out corporations and banks that should be allowed to fail”.

    Want to be clear for me, I’m not the ideologue you seem to think I am so you need to be clear about your positions with me.

    There is a solution to this...

    Make the inmates fight like semi-gladiators with swords, axes, shields, etc....all those funky weapons in a Colosseum. The wardens (admin) could be the ones to give the thumbs up or thumbs down. Gate fees/ticket sales could go to the state budget

    I would like to see some brains put to work here but them the idiots just put Brown the clown back in Governors office and I see little hope for the State.
    I think you need to move back to Arizona to be with the so called "sane" people that you relate better to. Just a suggestion

    Why not just cut off the hands of everyone convicted of theft. I'm certain from your attitude that you would agree with that....right? Otherwise...you're just a friggin liberal that coddles criminals...right?

    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.
