      Did you read the article? This is exactly the kind of person we want picked up and detained. Otherwise we end up with Aurora happening all over again.

        True. That's a key determiner of whether he'd right the good ship USA.

          Our system is designed to err on the side of the individual in these cases. It can be a close call. But, what happened at Aurora or anywhere else is irrelevant. Each case must be decided on its own merits. That said, based on the article, I'd have to say the officials acted appropriately. If this guy had harmed himself or others, can you imagine the wailing? And much of it would be coming from the same people who are complaining now.

            And how far are we going to go with this? Do you recommend we go to Kim Jong-Il levels, where crying crocodile tears is worth jail time?

              I'm probably exposing my ignorance on matters Biblical here, but when did the Sea of Galilee become so important a site of veneration that it's inappropriate to swim in it? Or, one assumes, fish in it. Or raft across it. The Isrealis engage in these activities, but most of them are Jews. What about Christians? Do any visiting Christians ever swim in it (with or without trunks)? If yes, then what's all the hubub about, bub?

              Incidentally, Ben Quayle represents me in Congress. And re-districting has put him in a race with another incumbent Republican, who is spinning this event as an example of Quayle's unfitness for office. I've already voted for Quayle, so I've got no way to express my "shock" and "outrage" that some (other) clown "washed his winkie" in the Sea of Galilee.

                As I say, close call. Kim Jong Il or Stalin or Lavrenty Beria have nothing to do with it. Different people might have come to a different conclusion. I understand slippery slope arguments, I just don't think one applies here.

                  My post was tongue in cheek. Of course skinnydipping (absent significant extenuating circumstances of course) is unimportant in determining our leader. Probably most if not all other candidates have skinnydipped a time or three. But, this is election season, so we see all sorts of things thrown around to try to gain advantage that shouldn't be important (and important stuff ignored).

                    I wasn't responding to you, Bob. It was Politico that erroneously reported an FBI "investigation" of the incident. Apart from the obvious jurisdictional questions, why would the FBI (or anyone else, for that matter) care? As you're doubtless aware, Schweikert is trying to turn this into Mark Foley redux, but he's about the only one.

                      So... If Obama gets the credit for doubling the stock market, does he also get the blame for the sh*t state the economy is in?

                        Is he not getting credit for unemployment currently? If he wasn't, the election would be a landslide in his favor.

                        The economy is two speed right now...fairly bad on unemployment and fairly good on business health. I give Obama a moderate amount of credit for both as he deserves.

                          You're going to find that for most people, "fairly good" business health means businesses should be hiring more people. Things have stalled on the hiring front, so I'm going to have to disagree on your "fairly good" business health report. The state of the markets is not completely indicative of overall business health, since a lot of stock and bond trading is just speculation about how a company or industry might do in the next quarter or fiscal year.

                                Really agree with this statement. Both employment (or their lack thereof) and business health are inter related. As of this moment, both really stink. I am not a big Obama fan for certain. But then again i am not enamored by just about any political representative right now. I am just not sure any of them will be able to do what needs to be done to right the ship of the American economy. I certainly am not smart enough to know all that needs to be done but i do think I am intelligent enough to realize that most of these guys are just not going to do it. But Obama has already been given 3+ years and it has clearly been shown that we are going in the wrong direction.
                                As far as the stock market-i am doing pretty well right now after a few years of scary desperation. But i take a very active role in my investments and watch from 9:30 AM until 4PM every day making frequent adjustments. Any success that i am having on Wall street is my own doing and i give zero credit to Obama or any other politician. Much of the market, at least in the short term, is just educated gambling (unless you are privy to some sort of inside information) and i consider it just a few steps higher and controllable than driving down to Atlantic City and sitting by the roulette wheel and betting the outside of the board. As for longer term investing-it really is the only game in town since leaving any money in the bank and getting 0.35% interest on a CD is just about the same as putting it under the mattress.
