The vermin who immolated Muath Al-Kassasbeh are savage, evil, inhuman scum. Waiting to see if this comment survives our resident hall monitors.

We solved a messy problem in our neighborhood once upon a time, and you're butt hurt about it for some reason or other. I am clearly not qualified to advise you. Perhaps you should call your mommy and have a good cry.
Does freedom of speech make you uncomfortable, George?
The dog at large issue is a problem. Or used to be; I haven't lived in town in about a decade. When I was still in the city limits, I and other dog owners in the neighborhood took matters into our own hands. We detained dogs on the loose for retrieval by Animal Control, and insisted that the owner be fined (we learned that 1st-time offenders were frequently not being penalized). If AC was unavailable, we often delivered the animal ourselves to Critter Court. We were pretty militant about it, and the dog at large problem - along with the unwanted deposits – evaporated in our neighborhood.
The book was an amazing read. I'm hoping the film does it justice.

I believe it was Daniel Patrick Moynihan who coined the phrase “defining deviancy down.” We might adjust that to read “intrusion=sanctuary.” Or better yet, “encroachment=revenue.” Always follow the money. There is a compelling argument to be made that Big Brother killed Eric Garner to insure that the State's tax collectors shall not be challenged or compromised; with violence and death to be levied against those who try.
It is interesting to recall the self-righteous outrage when Bush signed the Patriot Act, with all of its monitoring and 'sneak & peak' provisions. Evidently Barry-Holder are more effective hucksters than W-Ashcroft, since no one bats an eye now that 44 has doubled down on 43's overreach. Perhaps that salesmanship of the underlying principles helps to explain the “move along, nothing to see here” attitude some have embraced regarding this experiment by the city.
If you truly believe this forum would benefit from your absence; and posses the courage of your stated convictions, then you will remove yourself. If not, why?
Hey Pat West and Dan Shores - Rhys just called Mark Hartless a name. Should he be "kicked off this forum"? If not, why?
