William, it is not good for either side to force ones religion or no religion down anyone's throat.Read More It is not good for either side. I don't want to hear the noisy amplified sound system into my home 8 times a day every day. That IS forced religion. Put up a quiet sign and that would be fine. Put up a 500 foot cross and that is fine too. As long as it is QUIET! STOP THE NOISE! NO FORCED RELIGION!

It is all about the noise. It is all about the church's power to do whatever they want with noRead More consequences.

nonoise: With due respect, the churches around here had their bells ringing since they were builtRead More some centuries ago. For us to tell those churches they can't ring their bells is not reasonable. If one is bothered by the bells, one should check around the neighborhood for church bells before moving into that neighborhood. I personally like the church bells chiming. On the other hand, when it comes to churches coming before the planning board, neighbors do have their chance to voice their objections to noisy church bells and perhaps have it written into the decision on whether that church may or may not have church bells chiming away. I will not move next to a train tracks for where there are train tracks, there are noisy trains. Likewise, wherever there are churches with bells, there are, from time to time, noisy church bells chiming away.

Card using enthusaists kind of deserve to have this happen to them. By using your cards everywhereRead More you go, do you realize you are taking a large chunk of the businesses profit and choosing to give it to banks and credit card processors rather than the business itself? You, by using your cards, also force businesses to raise prices. Stop using your cards and you won't have to worry about security breaches AND you help businesses AND you help yourself by allowing businesses to lower prices.

For all the years I've had debit cards, never used them. If you're somewhere where credit cards, aRead More check or cash in your pocket can't be used, you shouldn't be there. Besides, most of you forget about all those last minute withdrawals and Irresponsibility takes over, yet you're still surprised- "what happened my bank account?"- the drunken stupor in the bar, or knee jerk "i gotta have it". Most can't afford those approaches, and the service fees know that
cookiepro2 April 20, 2014 at 02:17 pm
I don't like debit cards either, it is a direct line to one's bank account. What I didn't like wasRead More my bank replacing my ATM card with a dual usage ATM/debit card without asking me...I made them cancel it and give me an ATM functionality card only. Some people don't have credit line established yet (like my college student son) and have no choice but to use a debit card instead of credit card. I take precautions and have it assigned to an isolated checking account, and urge son to monitor it closely (set up email alerts), good training for future financial independence.

So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.
