Punishment? They should hold him down while someone vomits all over him.

So, bartenders and waiters not only have to enforce the smoking ban.............now they want them to frisk their patrons and stamp their hands so the servers will know who is carrying?

This judge is totally out of touch with the people he is ruling over.
A lot of people simple do not have the money to spend on a suit or a fancy dress that they will only wear once or twice to appease this judges fashion sense.
Many people that appear before him struggle daily just to put food on the table.
This judge should be ashamed of himself.

I am a compulsive saver........opting out of SS and Medicare would have worked well for me.
My complaint regarding 401k plans is that the funds offered usually suck.
And.........not fond of the companies that require that a percentage on your 401k money go into company stock. To me, that is criminal considering the fact that if the company goes bankrupt you are totally screwed.

If the government quit taking out taxes for Medicare and Social Security..........do you really think people would save enough money on their own to provide for themselves in their old age?
It would be a disaster.
As a whole, the American people do not have enough self discipline to save money on their own.
So, we do away with Social Security and Medicare..........just what do we do with the people who have failed to provide for themsemvles? I guess we would just allow them to perish on the streets when they become too old to work.
Don't think that would happen in America. I guess we would have to put them all on some type of eldely welfare...........that the rest of the tax payers would have to pay for.
The people that opted out of Social Security would still end up being cared for in the end.........all the while contributing nothing to the system themselves.
THAT is what would happen if people were not forced to save for their own retirement through SS taxes.

I would like to know about the behavior of the children involved.

These hospitals should also stop hiring overweight people.
Overweight people have more medical problems than smokers.........and hiring the overweight sends the message that the hospitals condone being overweight.
Obesity is now the biggest health problem in this country........and these hospitals encourage it by employing overweight people.
Pretty hypocritical........crucifying smokers because of a bad health habit, yet ignoring the bad health habits of the overweight.
The next time you are in a hospital, pay attention to how many of the employees are overweight........it is astounding.

A few years ago a house in Howland also exploded soon after Dominion had been there.
I remember thinking Dominion would surely be sued.
Glad I have an all electric home........can't trust the furnace repair companies or the gas company to keep you safe. Scary.........really scary.

God is Pro Abortion:
And.....the facts are, many, many more women die during childbirth than from a legal abortion.
And......most women do not regret having an abortion........you only hear from the women who were unstable to begin with and are unable to deal with many aspects of their lives.
And.....all anti-choice individuals should be required to adopt at least one unwanted child.......and that includes all of the disabled children now spending their lives in institutions. Please don't cry poor mouth either, you yourselves have stated that if faced with an unplanned pregnancy you would have the child . You would manage.
And....I am sooooo tired of hearing that woment should keep their legs together. Why don't men just keep their business in their pants and quit abandoning their "woman" after they have knocked them up? For every single mother out there, there is a man who has walked away and left the tax payers with the burden of providing for their child.
And......you don't want your tax dollars paying for abortions? Maybe I don't want my tax dollars going to support welfare babies and pay for their healthcare for 20 years. MANY people have more babies just to stay on the welfare gravy train.....wake up.
And.....VERY FEW partial birth abortions are preformed. It is ONLY done to SAVE THE MOTHER'S LIFE. How many of you antis out there would be willing to stand there and watch your wife, sister or daughter DIE because this procedure was deemed illegal? If you are OK with that..... FINE.....don't have the procedure done and let your loved one die. You have NO RIGHT to make that decision for someone else.
And.....even sterilization has been known to fail as a method of birth control. How many of you pro-choice men out there would agree to TOTAL ABSTINENCE if your lady didn't want to take the chance of ending up with an unwanted pregnancy?Please stand up and be counted if you would be willing to go without vaginal sex until your lady is well into menopause.
Abortion is a PERSONAL CHOICE. Mind your own business.
