I have no intention of paying taxes because my partner are considered second-class citizens due to laws that prevent us from being married because we are two men. Hello, we don't have the same tax law rights as heterosexual married couples filing income tax. Very unfair.
I think we need to do a much better job of creating new citizens, ... Oftentimes new immigrants aren't familiar with our democracy, and it's important to nurture that democratic participation that's so critical to elections.

If everyone would be good citizens and move over when the signs tell you to, traffic would move more quickly. It's the science of complexity. In large group dynamics special things happen because each individual is trying to maximize their own benefit.
This was an informing operation, like any policeman when he tells something to his station or any citizen who sees or hears (a crime). To say that those people were sentenced to death because Abdullah wrote or it was said that he wrote it, this is rubbish.
