Lol, now you try to pass the buck?

You're the one who compared the state of US "children" (which has multiple definitions depending on which country we're talking about) to the rest of the "children" in "the world".

You trumpeted a comparison of a vague term to an even vaguer context. Lol.

Hell I helped you out. I assumed you were comparing our children to children in Islamic countries (Somalia, Afghanistan, etc). Of course, that makes the mistake of assuming you intended to stay on-topic.

In any case, yeah no justice system is perfect, but a lot of these "children" that have been tried as adults are guilty of things like murder, arson, etc. Here's one of said "children" to balance out the annecdote in the video you posted. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Boyd_Malvo) Obviously we're absolute barbarians for imprisoning such people. I wonder what his sentence would be in a Muslim country?

Anywhere but an open internet forum, you'd be laughed out of a debate.
I can't argue with someone who can always come back and point out Somali and say we are better then that
Your just going to jump to another crazy comparison to justify yourself
The internet is the only place your type can play its stupid games.
In real life your the guy that nods and smiles and then goes to FB and cries

In real life the GF and I have tickets to see the The Phillies vs The Braves with another couple at 7:15 tonight, so I gotta head out. Have fun in P&N!

Here's everyone and my fat face (I'm on the left):


Here's some of the park:



Was an extremely lopsided game (although the 9th inning itself was pretty awesome). Still a good time though.

Hey hockey games can be exciting, and CFL isn't bad from what little I've seen of it. Baseball's kinda nice because the atmosphere's a little less intense in my experience, lot of people bring their kids and it's not likely for a fight to break out in the stands or anything. And the game moves pretty slowly, plenty of breaks where you can get up and not really miss anything.

Wasn't me, but if the offer was sincere and you don't mind paying $8 for a single bottle of beer and $4.25 for water, go for it.

I want to apologize for this stupid remark.
I get caught up, and start arguing with an avatar instead of a person
No worries, I've done the same from time to time. :p

It's pretty easy to rail on someone on the internet. If we'd been going on like we just were IRL we'd probably have been talking over each other or something that would have forced us to tone it down.
