Most of us have had a pet that at some point we have faced a hard choice of putting a pet down because of suffering. And the pet was going to die anyways, we do the humane thing and take the suffering away.
Well what I want to know is in humans who have a fatal illness where no amount of treatment eases pain and suffering and all we do is sit by and wait for time to take them from this life. Should we be able to make a choice to end our own life, assuming that we are of sound mind.. Should doctors be allowed to help a patient that is going to die anyways and let the patient decide when they go? When the pain. Is so bad and the suffering is so bad, why can't we choose to end our life in a way that is in the best interest of the person. We take our beloved pets who most people feel they are like children to us, and we take away there suffering.. So if we have this compassion for our pets? Why don't we have the same compassion for people. ?
15 year old son is making a stand aginst eating meet?
My son along with his cousin and some other people have made a choice to not eat meat for one month. While I stand by his reason to do it, and the reason is because of the current Tyson meat plant abuse to the live animals. My issue is how do I provide him the the correct balance of food options during this time? Allot of people do not eat meet and I respect that but I have always good some kind of meat for dinner. And now I see my son sitting there eating boiled eggs and toast for dinner.. I am worried, any advice would be great. Thank you
This is not a debate, but more a place for people who have laughed, cried, and just miss this guy already. I find this a sad and tragic event. For thOSS that don't know, Robin killed him self today. Please and comments below on some of your favorite Williams movies. I will start with "Good Morning Vietnam" one of my favorite movies he had done. We tend to speak highly of people after there death, but I feel that by doing so we are not seeing them as who they really are. Williams battled with drugs and drinking off and on most of his life. He did become sober in 83' but relapsed in 2003. He bacame depressed. Very sad.
We all know to we'll about posted speed limits, and most of us have gotten a ticket at one time or another. There a places in the world with no speed limit, there was even a state in the US that didn't have one either. Now it does, but the traffic accidents went down for the period of no limits. And after they posted a speed limit, wrecks increased. So should we have a "safe" speed limit or does the speed limit actually cause more wrecks?
Did Tony gas the engine knowing the back end would strike or come close to hiting Ward? What are your thoughts below is one of many videos of this tragic death. Sound of below... Should stewart be drug tested? Should he face any criminal charges? Or was this just a horribe mistake?
I have noticed that there is a Black Shopping Channel. My question is what if there was a white shopping channel? Would there be a racist out cry from Black people. Claiming we are trying to keep them out? I don't care that there is a black shopping channel, just wanting to knoa, what would happen if we had a white one?
This has been a hot topic for many years.. While there are no laws saying we can not spank our child, it is becomming more more seen as abuse. I will remain neutrul as much as I can, since I have experienced both approaches and I can see how different things work for different kids..
Do you feel that we need to make a law that would punish parents for smoking in a car with there child? And do you feel that it is sad that parents can not make the right choice on this matter on there own. Also do ypu feel that this should be a child abuse ticket. And would this open the door for laws regarding smoking in the home were children are living?
It has has been known for years that second hand smoke can cause illness and death.
Or do you feel we should educate people on the dangers of smoking around there kids, and let them make the right choice? ie; this approach has not been working thus far. Can we stop this from happening with out a law to punish people?
This is a true story and bopefully I can explain with out making this to long. But like I said this is a true situtation.
family of mine has been renting some ground next door to there house for 9 years. This has been on a verbal contract only. Although we have cancelled checks to prove rent payment for the entire time. Paper trials are important.
Two weeks ago the son who lives with his mother who is 50 years old, stormed over to the shop were my husband works on the other side of his grandas house. (Hope this makea since) this guy had a corn knife in his hand and started yelling at my husband about some weeds that were sprayed on the land that our grandpa has been renting for many years. So my husband was backed in a corner by a man who has a criminal record from making meth to god knows what else. He is a felon and no body likes him being around. After my husband was able to back him out of the shop at his work. He told him to show him the weeds that grandpa sprayed.. Now it turns out these weeds was not just any weeds, it was Mary Jane. Hince why this guy was mad. We live in Nebraska and for those that know, Mary Jane grows wild out here. We call it ditch weed and it is worthless, but the plants that were sprayed were not ditch weed. It was good weed that was planted and grown by a person.
Long story org short we called the sherif because this guy could hurt someone and this made us very scared. Not to mention he was currently in possession of fire arms and had targets on his land with pictures of police officers with the letters NPD on it.
less than 24 hours later SWAT and police swarmed the house. Hauled this guy out in his underwear and had 7 SWAT members with guns on him while they searched the house and property. They found guns meth and weed. And took him to jail. His bond was set at $50,000 and 10% is 5,000. Today grandpa was served papers that he is being sued for spraying the weeds and they are saying that he had never rented the ground, the kicker the law suit is for 3,444.00 . We think that is the amount she need to bond her son out of jail. I keep telling grandpa not to worry becUse we have cancelled checks and proof that he has been using that ground for X amt of years without any problems. They know we called the cops, my question is, do they stand a chance of winning this or are they crasping at straws.. Any advice would be help full. And if you need more Info please ask, I could have left some stuff out. Thanks you
As I am female I have different views on this subject, and it's not what most would think. But I'm not here to discuss my view on a women in charge of this country. I want to know what others think and feel about a women president.
It is looking more more like Hillary will run in 2016.. But has Obama ruined her chances of becoming the first women president? Or for those who feel Obama has done good, has he paved the road for her to win?
below is a link I came acrossed, not the first time I have seen this claim. Given the age and factors in 2001 of Bin Laden it would be easy for me to belive he was dead in 2001. And what a way to go with credit of 9/11. I do find it odd however that after the Female PimeMinister of Pakistan made this clam she was murdered. there could be other reason for this event, but makes since to me
First, I see that we can make people (Allies) Enemy's ect.. Does this increase are points? Or mostly I just want to know how this works.. Other than that I think I am finding my way around pretty good. Thanks for any support
if a person is a killer and kills a family of 4 along with the house pet dog, should the killers fate he harsher sentence than a man who kills a cop? This is for the soul purpose of seeing how people feel about not just the death penalty but is murder "Murder" no matter what? Or as a whole, do we see some murders as "not as bad" as others.

There was a story that made headlines awhile back:
A dad had taken his kids along with a family friend to there farm this family friend took the lil girl and walked away from the rest and started to rape this little girl. The dad went looking for his daughter and when he walked up on what was happening he killed the man on the spot.. This dad did something that day that none of want to ever be In A place or time to have to make that choice.
So how do you feel?
Is a cold blooded killer face the same fate as a cop killer ?
or do cop killers and child molestors get the same fate?
Should any one get the death penelty?
should all three get the same fate?
I realize this is a huge area to discuss but please bare with me. I am trying to get the publics idea as to what is more important as a whole. Thank you
I am asking this because this topic has hit headlines lately and I personally pay for two kids to eat lunch at school. It cost about $900 bucks for the school year, now this may not seem like a lot to some of you, but when your kids are already healthy and fit, because we own our own ranch and both the boys are out side working and if they are not working we are playing out doors. I realize that there are allot of family's that use TV and video games to babysit there kids. But for the ones of us that don't, why punish the rest of us with food that the kids just are not eating. To me this is a family matter not a government matter. If the government was paying for the lunch bill then that would be different. But they are not... as you can tell I'm agaiant this in a big way, I have had people tell me to make my kids lunch, we'll i shouldn't have to, I pay regardless I get that, and I could make there lunch and save money, but this is about our rights as Americans. The government has no right to come in and dictate what we eat.
