    The insanity defense requires the defendant prove they did not know right from wrong at the time of the act. That is the TX and many state's criteria. This guy ran, then confessed and in multiple...

    Let's see, Westboro is a church of hundreds, picketing in obnoxious and disrespectful ways.

    Pretty one sided analysis. The Walmart employees are all local spending their wages locally. And are you sure the Main Street store owner is spending every penny locally? I'll bet they have assets...

    As for DC, the various Smithsonian museums are excellent. If you are interested in flight at all, the Udvar Hazy museum out near Dulles airport is amazing. The flight simulators are a ton of fun.

    Really agree with Sswor's post. Felt compelled to state publicly, since we are often on opposite sides of the argument. Nice to be in agreement, and really well stated post.

    To the point, that we can't know whether he is guilty, in a legal sense, I agree. So release the report.

    From a practical perspective, only a few choices. 1. He walked off under his own...

    Bad ad. Not funny and vaguely disturbing. But discussion by some overwrought. Sometimes if you don't like something, you just turn it off.

    You do realize right, that a subsidy is not profit but likely used to defray operating expenses? Without more information, you can make no judgement as to how profitable or unprofitable their farm...
