A reasonable request.
Also, with a strict 10% rule, the IRS woul be completely uneccesary, it exists because the byzantine tax laws exist. Simplify the tax code, and you simplify the agency, thus, reducing its power.
Our government just has too much power, becuase we have let them have too much money. If we cut their funding to 10% of what people earn, (all people, rich and poor alike) they would have less power, and things like this wouldn't much matter, even if they did continue to happen.Starve the beast, and it will be small enough to drown in your bathtub, then, out of healthy fear, it will behave in such a way that it won't require you to drown it.
The bulk of the population there is now Bostonians who moved north. Long-Time Mainers call them "Mass-Tards" or the pithy "Mass-Holes"
Well, that's chilling, isn't it ? "a life worth sacrificing" It is no 'sacrifice' if you end a pregnancy to gain personal convenience, or avoid personal responsibility. A sacfrifice, by definition, costs you something, usually something significant. a person who is relieved they or their girl-mate had an abortion is not making any 'sacrifice.' Not when they rejoice and breathe a sigh of relief when it's done. looking at you, Toure'

I think it can be argued that when punishments are more 'usual', even if they are harsh, they are not cruel. Consistent, even application is the key, not severity. This is a crime problem, not a mental illness problem, not a legal gun ownership problem.

The 'Cruel and Unusual' Language has been used in the courts to take the teeth out of almost all our systems of punishment. Commit a Crime, and get to live free on other peoples dimes for a long time. If justice were consitently harsher for the convicted, we might see less crime, as those considering heinous asks decide its just not worth the risk.- They already decide not to attack gun shows - they can certainly wiegh personal risk.

I'm concerened about this: "the shooters must be crazy" argument and the following " we need to do a better job of locking up our crazy people". While they may have very uncommon thoughts going on in their heads (mental illness) they are still able to reason. they don't go and attack police stations, national guard armories, the White House, etc. They go where the risk of resistance is almost guranteed to be nil: Schools, Malls, "Gun Free Zones" etc. In my opinion, that makes them less crazy and more criminal.
