Jan Brewer Orders Full Review Of Drawn-Out Execution Reuters Posted: 07/23/2014 8:49 pm EDT Updated:Read More 07/23/2014 9:59 pm EDT Print Article ********************************************** Wait, we kill mainly for revenge because it is known that the death penalty does not deter crime and in fact is more expensive than prison for life. We are nuts to put people to death but worry about the compassion of how this death is administrated! Somewhere I read "thou shall not kill" but never said it alright to kill if you commit a horrible crime! It is also true that the experience of the death penalty has been that we have put innocent people to death! The problem with the death penalty including those cited above is that killing people makes us just as barbaric as these criminals especially when used just for revenge! Why do tough on crime love the death penalty? Is this a form of pandering like when Republicans pander to the Christian-Right that have us believe they are fighting for the unborn and fighting against the "immorality" of being Gay?

The future can be bright for anyone that is willing improve themselves to becoming more marketableRead More in the job market. That means getting a good education, whether it be College or Trade School. I taught for 18 years and I was disappointed in the effort of some of my students. They wanted good grades without doing the work necessary to achieve good grades. I also see Latinos (before you decide to crucify me understand that I am Latino as well!) who want better paying jobs without the warranted skills. I'm all for better pay for it needs to come from the individual, not the government!
Manny Reynoso July 24, 2014 at 06:18 am
Opportunities for better pay are created when an individual betters themselves educationally. It isRead More the individual, not the government that will lead to better pay!

Disneyland. Patch file photo.
Gludenwald May 20, 2014 at 09:55 pm
When the "E" ticket was introduced to Disneyland in 1959 it would have cost a family ofRead More four about $60 to visit the park and enjoy all the attractions on offer as well as eat lunch and dinner in the park. That's $60 for about 40 attractions, 18 less than are on offer now. When you account for inflation that's equal to about $500 in current money. Today it would be nearly impossible on a weekend day to actually experience all of Disneyland in a single visit, the lines are simply too long. Even those who participate in "ride as many as you can" competitions dedicated to riding everything have trouble reaching 100%. So, to really experience all of Disneyland, by itself, in 2014 is easily going to take two days, more if you want California adventure as well. Sure you can hit just the "E" ticket rides like Space Mountain and Star Tours and Big Thunder, but will you skip out on Winnie the Pooh, Jungle Cruise, and Alice in Wonderland to do it? What about the shows? Could you realistically get a family of four through all the parades and entertainment they have now? You'd lose all your time just to that, the Aladdin musical easily eats up a full hour by itself. Nope, the parks right now offer an *amazing* value on a day to day basis, if you go for 4 or 5 days. It's impossible to do everything at both parks in one day, or even one park in one day, that's the reality of how crowded it is on top of how much there is to do. If you want value-oriented fun try Knott's or LegoLand or SeaWorld. Disneyland is the crown jewel of theme parks, run by a billion dollar multi-national entertainment conglomerate, of course it's going to cost more, because it offers hands down the single most premium experience you can get and continues to be one of the most popular amusement parks in the world (in fact the top 8 theme parks by attendance in 2012 were all Disney). Some of the most technologically advanced rides are at Disneyland, they always have been, and they will continue to be so as WDI is always innovating and coming up with incredible new attractions. So yes, it costs a lot to visit the happiest place on earth, and you know why? Because it's the Happiest Place On Earth.

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actually few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment for infractions justly employed have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime is the goal if you THINK.

Eric Wessels May 7, 2014 at 08:16 am
If you really are worried about pork: It has come to my attention, much too late to do anythingRead More about it probably, that there is a hog confinement proposed to be constructed within 1 mile of my home. This is not an uncommon occurrence in the state of Iowa. In fact there are 10 homes within 1 mile of this proposed facility, some just ½ mile away. I have looked at the manure management plan and one poor family will have manure spread on three sides of their property throughout the year. Of course this proposed facility is under the limit of 2500 hogs to require a permit by 20 hogs, so no one was notified. They will run 2 sets of hogs through the facility each year, 4960 hogs. This will produce over 660,000 gallons of liquid waste to be stored in a 270’ long, 70’ wide, 8’ deep lagoon. The manure will all be spread in section 13 of the Adel Township in Dallas County. My secondary concern (my primary concern is my family) is for others impacted and the county as a whole. This is terrible planning. The proposed facility lies in the center between Adel, Waukee, and Dallas Center. Dallas County is the second fastest growing county in the country. Waukee builds a new school every year. The Waukee soccer complex is a short 3.5 mile drive south. The proposed new county facilities would be 3 miles away. There is a church on highway 6 less than 3 miles away. The parking lot for the bike trail in Waukee is less than 3 miles away. The bike trail from Waukee to Dallas Center that was just completed, and is well used, is less than 100 yards. All of these items are outside the limits set by the legislature, but all will be affected. The county web site has maps indicating the entire core from Waukee to Adel and DC is anticipated residential with a regional commercial core where this is located. The long range planning has a western bypass that ties into the highway 5 bypass going right by this facility less than half a mile. Maybe this is what they mean by regional commercial. The map shows a 3/4 mile swath from R16 to R22 just north of 270th street. In a conversation I had w/ the county, it was stated this owner plans to build several (no number or location was given) in Dallas County. He can put facilities of this size every ½ mile without a permit because they will all be considered individual units under the size required to be permitted. I can’t believe this is what the citizens of Dallas County want, or what the planning organizations spend their time working on simply to be ignored. The problem primarily lies in the fact that local control is not allowed. In almost every other aspect of governance, local control is preferred and advocated for by the Iowa legislature. Big Ag controls the legislature and the DNR. Talk to your rep. Talk to your senator. Get local control for issues that affect you and your neighbors.

What you're suggesting Brenda is much like if a businessRead More offers endless amounts of alcohol to someone, that someone runs over and kills another run their parking lot--then saying it is not the responsibility of the business owner to administer responsible goods to their patrons, nor monitor or have ANY CLUE whatsoever, what any of their patrons are doing inside the establishment. Um…if you paid over $8000 in a mobile home over the span of 13 months---you aren't very bright with your money. The very first month you should've been knocking down the door at SCE, and raising hell to a very loud level. It's foolish to just keep paying and not demand better service. SCE showed up one morning on my front lawn, started spray painting an orange line about 4 ft in from the street. Never knocked, never gave me notice… I went outside and asked what was happening. They told me our neighbors were having trouble and the line was best accessed from MY front lawn! They thought they were going to dig a damn trench the entire length of my lawn!! I looked at these ol' boys (all about 250 +lbs, bearded, tattoo'd, etc) and said just one thing, "OH HELL nooo!" That's about all a man needs to hear from a southern woman to know he best have a plan B, because his plan A ain't EVEN going to happen!! I wrestled with SCE for over 2 weeks, they'd show up, I'd walk out. They'd call, I'd say NO! I won. They ended up digging up the street PAR had to come fix some things, they ended up digging in THE neighbors yard who had the problem (ruined their lawn instead of mine!) and that was that. Btw, from the first time I stated my "Oh Hell No," with feet planted firmly, hands on hips, eyes looking straight at the foreman---I had their respect. hahahaha--I still remember as I said it to the foreman in the corner of my eye the worker who had already started digging, stuck his shovel right back in the dug up dirt, without a second guess, and just started piling it right back in the hole he'd made! hahahahahahahahaha you should a seen the look on that kids face!! hahahahhaahaha

I don't see how hanging around in front of Home Depot getting glared at by Guatemalan illegals showsRead More any ambition.. other than tempt you to break into cars...Home Depot does drug testing and won't hire ex-cons either. You guys keep dreaming.

I don't know why the county would have an issue, or a say in the matter. Private land is just that,Read More Private. Next we'll be turning in "event" permits if we want to have a Barbeque and invite the neighbors. I can only imagine the rush of permit requests for superbowl sunday!

we are becoming such an intolerant community... let the people run... with bulls even - if theyRead More want, which they apparently do! @anotherview, I don't see how this bull run will not impact the 79 corridor any more than the Tough Mudder event did a few months back, or more than the masses of RVs and Trailer going out to the glamis and ocotillo each weekend during "the season." Tough Mudder brought lots of folks and highly desirable revenue to the corridor as a matter of fact!!!

TW has been a problem since we got it and it only gets worse. Last year I was ready to switch butRead More after this I am done with TW.

Couldn't get them on the phone or get their web site to work. Unbelievable right before half timeRead More and I lost 5 channels at the same time. Then when the game is over it comes back on. I did get a recording and was put on a list to call me when the channel was working again. I'm still waiting for the call. I am really fed up. I don't understand how it was that the most watched program of the whole year got shut off.

This whole TV cable system is one of the biggest rip offs. We pay dearly for poor customer service,Read More confined and inflexible plans - all to watch poor quality shows and constant re-runs of 30 to 40 or more year old shows and movies. The technology to get rid of all these providers and their equipment is now available, and we should insist on having it. __________________________________________________________ Why are our city governments not pushing the cable providers for improvements and better pricing? Because like all the rest of our services, our local governments get a slice of the pie. It's just another hidden tax they hope we won't notice!
