re: Joss Whedon says female leads should be female. Outrage ensues - thetempleowl
Damn. Screw them... on second thought, let me take that back. I don't know. Am I old fashioned when I think this whole transgender thing is out of control? They are born men. They can think they are whatever they wish to think, but it doesn't change the fact that they were born men. Also, ...

re: Harry Reid calls Bundy supporters 'domestic terrorists' - thetempleowl
This is the problem with passing laws that allows the government increased leeway and taking away of peoples rights when terrorism is involved. What defines a terrorists is very subjective and constantly changing. Anyone who does anything that makes someone uncomfortable at some point could be c...

re: Obamacaid denying more care. e.g., "If you like your doctor" . . . Too Bad ! - thetempleowl
Obamacare was never designed to help those who actually have good employment. It was meant for the people who want stuff for free. For every person who got screwed by the old system, you have twenty on the system of people who work little and now get coverage. How does Obamacare do this? It ...

re: Armed robber was never told to report to prison - thetempleowl
Lets lock the guy up and have him cost the system whatever the cost of incarceration is. Idk, 60k a year? The other option is have him work and pay taxes since he turned his life around. Well, if you work for the jails, you want him to have to go to jail. Everyone else wants him left out...

re: Is a Full Freezer More Energy Efficient Than an Empty Freezer? - thetempleowl
Jesus people, the answer has already been given. First, technically a full freezer is more efficient. It is more efficient because the opening and closing of the door of a freezer is when it loses most of its coolness. When the freezer is empty, the freezer is filled with air and when openi...

re: If Carter's Hostage Rescue Mission Had Succeeded . . . . - thetempleowl
[quote]I have to chime in to say I find it tough to give Carter much grief about the attempted rescue. It was a bold move that failed and he flat out owned it. I was old enough to remember that. [/quote] I don't think anyone is blaming Carter for the failed rescue. Carter took the blame for ...

re: If Carter's Hostage Rescue Mission Had Succeeded . . . . - thetempleowl
There is little doubt that Carter's presidency would've been viewed differently. Also, one has to wonder how gun shy this made Carter to do other things. It is an interesting question, but at the end of the day, I don't think Carter really had what was needed for a president. Carter was a good ...

So, the guy stabbing people gets charged in the murder of a guy that the police erroneously shot while on the scene. Imagine that guy in jail. Yeah, I stabbed two or three people, didn't really hurt any of them. Just mainly stabbed them in the arms and legs. But one of the guys I stabbed ra...

re: Teacher / Student fight - Superintendent has to crawfish - thetempleowl
teachers don't routinely start fights with students. Administrators need to have faith in their teachers. This could have been simply defused stating that we have well trained faculty here at this school where teachers know how to handle themselves and disruptive students. Right now we kn...

Imagine if this had been one of those automatic pencils. I wonder if an automatic mechanical pencil that holds more than 10 extra leads could be referred to as an assault pencil. Imagine if the kids had one of those. He would be expelled. Thankfully he really had an old school pencil. One...
