A few more observations & remarks. I realized I had a bunch of links that I need to make comment on before I forget. Been doing a lot today & have been tired at the moment but here goes.
My only comment to this one is that if I were one of the family members of one of these teens who committed suicide instead of focusing that rage outward & the bullies came to the funeral and laughed at the corpse of my deceased relative that they tormented, I sure as hell wouldn't just stand and watch.
Instead, I'd be murdering the little shits or doing something so sinister and vicious to them that they'd begging for the sweet release of death. I would imagine you'd have a good argument for the insanity defense in that situation & I know if it were me, I wouldn't be able to stop myself. I can't even stop myself from confronting assholes who mess w/cats; let's face it, most people who know me would say you don't want to cross me unless you really hate valuable body parts or hate having a good quality of life. I suppose the fact that I was tormented myself as a child would make it even more likely that someone doing that would suffer.
Here's the first lawyer ad I've seen on Craig's List asking for supermodels:

Newsflash: when you ask for pictures, you're pretty much telling the world that you're seeking a supermodel or planning to engage in some sort of employment discrimination. This person was asking to be reamed out for it.
There's also this.
I agree w/some of these points but I'd say don't put in blood, sweat and tears unless you're an owner or work for someone who actually appreciates you. Remember that you always have to look out for yourself regardless & if it's not your business, you should be selfish. This is a lesson I learned after having employers who didn't appreciate me or tried scamming me.
Finally, the Republicans aren't the "party of paychecks" by a long shot contrary to what this article says.
There's some points on the Democrat side about not being supportive of business but I consider Republicans the party of intolerance. Or even the party of bigots or the party who could care less about anyone making less than $80K a year. Again, one more reason I follow no one & am an independent. I'd like to see a common sense party rise up since no group follows the things I believe in even 80%; most have some stance on an issue that I find serious flaws in.
I've got more rants in me but now getting a bit sleepy so better to end it when you're coherent, huh?
