re: Snowden and Putin really throwing it down on us now. - DanTiger
[quote]Obviously we don't consider Britain a geopolitical threat for a litany of reasons that aren't even worth delving into. But I'll bet in the early 1900's we considered them more of a rival than now, in spite of the very common and close ties we have. Geopolitically, Russia has all the makings o...

[quote]And because of that we are now conditioned to treat every minor thing like it's a big deal. [/quote] Damn good point.

re: Armed robber was never told to report to prison - DanTiger
The guy was convicted of armed robbery. That means he held a gun on some poor person and made them hand over money. I find it hard to believe he is now "barely holding on" in prison and that he is suddenly a nice guy. Believe none of what you read and half of what you see. Missouri realy screwed...

[quote]Thing's don't just happen, they usually are caused by another human. What is different now is we fly off the handle over small things and we expect punishments that don't fit the crime.

Why does society now feel the need to assign blame for everything that happens? - DanTiger
I don't remember things being like this when I was younger but perhaps my memory is faulty. Sometimes bad things just happen. Should the CIA be blamed for not determining that 911 was about to happen? Should the FBI be blamed for letting the Boston bomber leave and come back into the country? Ev...
