you may think people who anxiously await sports seasons to start are stupid but lets not overlook people who get excited about the McRib coming back every year
Committing suicide is a crime in the US not so that we can punish the depressed, but because, if it weren’t, it would be illegal for the police to enter a home to save someone they suspected was about to kill themselves.
There has to be reasonable belief that a crime is currently being committed or is about to be committed for the police to enter private property.
Yea if the cops don’t shoot you first in this country.
Official H&R Block Tax Tip 2014: you are allowed to deduct expenses resulting from disasters, so hopefully you hung on to your ticket stub from Grown Ups 2.
LTMC: It is also worth noting that a lot of people just don’t give a damn whether a person with a felony can get a job. ”Why should I care what happens to them? They’re a felon. Fuck ‘em. They’re scumbags.” They should care, though. Releasing someone into the world and then preventing them from being able to make an honest living makes them more likely to reoffend, thus making them more dangerous to you and your family. That’s the piece of the puzzle that most folks don’t get when they talk about the job prospects of convicted felons.
bolded for emphasis. It’s yet another facet of our society’s doublespeak (also seen recently in full-force regarding Belle Knox). As LTMC points out, part of the reason recidivism is so high in our country is because often, these felons aren’t rehabilitated at all. They’re out of the workforce for years, maybe decades, and are left to find employment for themselves without any skills and in a society which condemns them at first blush.
Whenever I go outside of Buenos Aires, people always assume I’m German, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. On the one hand it’s cool that people don’t think I’m American, but on the other hand, at least one guy gave me the Nazi salute as I walked by. So that’s not cool.
