So, why isn't this woman being charged? +CNN​, you missed out on the most important part of the story.
Dynel Lane will not face murder charges for allegedly cutting and removing an unborn baby from the mother's womb, an official said.

I think the horrors perpetrated on the mother warrant a lengthy prison sentence or permanant loony bin lockup. Murder charges won't bring the baby back. Its one less trial the poor mother will have to testify in. I think it's best for her.

While it is tempting to fall for the "both sides are equally guilty" False Equivalence Logical Fallacy here, remember that it was conservative Republicans that embarked on literally the worst campaign of obstruction in our nation's history starting in 2009 when the organelles really start to separate.

So, does anyone watch UFC? I don't. I've actually seen two whole fights and was bored out of my mind each time. Don't get me wrong, it's not the fighting itself that's boring - I feel the same about football, basketball, baseball and dozens of other "professional" sports.

Regardless, I had a chance to meet Brian today. He's a lot smaller than I am. Like, in height, width and girth. Nice guy, though.

I'm a really dickish fan.  I watch regularly, but I'm really bored if there aren't any deep cuts, broken bones, or traumatic brain injuries.  Not for nothing, but I feel my blood sports need actual blood.  I should probably feel bad about this, but I don't since I didn't choose their profession.

Story
Tagline
All other Jason's are mere reflections of my awesomeness.
Introduction

I am defined by the sum of my parts. Like anything else I am made up of many moving pieces that all come together in a great dance called Awesome. I am a U.S. Army veteran and an avid motorcycle rider -- a professionally amateur photographer, a friend, and jokester. I am a tech aficionado, an atheist, a spiritual person and a thinker. To try and define me, or classify me, as just one thing is to do yourself and myself wrong.  

I am from the Space Coast in Florida where I went into the Army. I was lucky enough to travel a bit, seeing west and east Europe, Canada (BC) and various bits of Mexico, as well as a lot of the USA.

Currently, I reside in Denver, CO and have a degree in Political Science with a background in technical operations, management and sales. I do volunteer work occasionally with non-profits and organized a Political Science Alumni chapter through my college.

I like the doggies, too. Mine's name is Rufus. 

I have a wide variety of interests and don't mind learning new things. I think a well rounded knowledge base helps us to make better decisions and understand the world in a clearer facet. 

Otherwise, I am who I am.

There are many reasons why I might follow you and many more than I won't. Reasons to keep me from adding you to my circles include:
  • Profile not filled out. Seriously, I don't know which circles to put you in if I don't know anything about you. That's where a filled out Profile comes into play.
  • You don't post anything. I mean anything Public. I don't add people just to bump my circle numbers, I add people because they post content I'm interested in. Post.
  • You're sole purpose to being on Google+ is to advertise your wares or promote your company/blog/expertise. I check everyone's profile out before I add them. If all I'm seeing is some lame marketing attempt, then I'm not adding you. 

NOTE: I will mute animated gifs. I may comment on it first, but I don't like them clogging my streams so I mute all of them. No exceptions.

Also, if I post something -- anything -- I am inviting conversation. I don't have to agree with you, you don't have to agree with me, but I love the conversation itself. Please feel free to comment.

I also tend to be objective rather than subjective, looking at things without emotion or empathy. Some people have blocked me because I didn't empathize with them, instead I tried to get more information to make a better informed conclusion. I think it's childish and immature to block someone because they immediately don't agree with you, but I'll survive.

I didn't have any problems with the food but my friend who likes spicy foods thought somewhere with the name "Jabanero" should have been a little hotter on the taste buds. Seeing as how that particular slot in the stripmall had been a number of little restaurants over the years, it's nice to see something lasting for a bit. For the price, though, I'd rather just go to Chipotle or Qdoba.

Went there today as my very first experience with a Smashburger, ever. There wasn't a line when I walked in and was able to order immediately. However, the guy I ordered from (his name tag said he was the GM) didn't help me out at all. Having never been there I didn't know that you ordered sides and drinks separately or that there were different sizes of burgers or that every sandwich can be a burger or a chicken. He did suggest the Colorado burger which I bought for a friend and then I ordered the Avocado Club. I didn't know this at the time, but Smashburger fries suck. I mean, they really really aren't good. The burger itself was okay, nothing special. My friend tells me they're normally greasier, but mine wasn't greasy at all. It was, however, salty. Very salty. As someone who never adds salt to food (hell, I've never even bought salt) this wasn't something I was ready for or welcome to. The restaurant, itself, was in fairly good order, but the cushions to all the seats I saw were damaged and in severe need or repairs or replacement. I can't for the life of me imagine why I'd ever go here again.

Everything about this place was fantastic! The staff were friendly and courteously, the food was fantastic and the drinks were made with drinking in mind. I can't say enough good things about this place. We easily dropped $300 there and left disappointed that it was so far away for easy return trips.

I hadn't been in a Best Buy in years and only came to this one to buy the new Captain America dvd. (For some unholy reason Marvel/Disney only released it through Best Buy.) While I'm there decide to check on another display I seen a couple of rows away. After a few minutes of standing there on my own a blue shirt from behind the customer service counter asks me if I need help. "Yes, thank you," I reply. A few minutes more and still no blue shirt to give me a hand. I look back at the counter and the kid that asked me is walking away from where I was standing. Another blue shirt is still back there, but after a few seconds he wanders off in another direction. Neither of them came to help me after one of them ask specifically if needed help. WTF? I gave it another few minutes and still no one came to answer my question. Finally I had to use my "command" voice to announce throughout the store needed assistance. Still no one came to help. Another customer came over and said he too was having problems with the customer service there. A vendor rep came over and said he sees that sort of behavior from the store employees all day long. Finally a kid with a mohawk-thing, came from a register and asked if he could help. I said I just had a quick question and explained that either of the customer service reps could have answered it without even leaving from behind their counter. Was this thing with a tag, but not on the shelf, available? After he leaves with the tag to verify the manager of the store comes over and tells me everyone is busy and that's why no was able to help me. Then why ask, I ask him? Why ask and then walk off? "I'm sorry," he said. I'm not looking for an apology, I told him. I'm looking for someone to explain to my why I was offered help and no one came to help? In fact, the one who offered pointedly walked off in another direction. I'll not be going back to this Best Buy ever and will probably not go to any Best Buy ever again. There's a reason people shop online now and that's to avoid crappy customer service.

We went here on a recommendation from a friend's mother. When we stepped into the doors I was surprised at all the "character" of the place. That is to say, the place was filled with old photos, antiques and memorabilia from the 19th century. At first it was a unique and fun and then it became a pain in the ass. Their menu was severely limited, just burgers and sandwiches. Our gluten free friend couldn't eat there and the staff were unwilling to let him order of menu. He was willing to pay a reasonable price for a salad or just hamburger patties, but they wanted him to buy two separate hamburgers and take the bread off himself. When he asked if he could bring food from another place in, they said no. I ordered at the same time as some other friends and while their food came (albeit after far too long) mine never arrived. I ordered a Pepsi (which was on the menu),was served a can of Coca-Cola (for $2) and sat down to wait. And wait. And wait. After my friends' food was delivered and eaten mine still had not arrived. Finally I went up to the bar and told the bartender I'd pay for the soda but she could cancel the sandwich order. I gave her $2 and walked out, grabbing a burrito next door. When I finally returned to my friends I was told my sandwich arrived while I was out. Another friend's sandwich arrived at the same time, nearly an hour after we ordered. The final straw was when they tried to charge me for the sandwich and my gluten free friend for drinks he'd already paid for before leaving to find something gluten-free friendly. We'll not be going there ever again or recommending the place to anyone but our enemies.

Since it's now a doughnut shop and serves delicious doughnuts, I find "The Salad Bowl" to be incredibly misleading. Even though I walk past this place four or five times a week as I make my way to the gym a couple of doors down or visit the pet supply shop next door, Google still tells me this is the Salad Bowl and that I can get a good crisp salad here. Even though I "Reported a Problem" via Google Maps, Google is still fairly certain The Salad Bowl is there where a doughnut shop takes up space. I'm confused, Google. I go there for a light lunch and I end up stuffing my mouth with sugary goodness. What blasphemy is this? Is this why my gym-time isn't reducing my pant size? Here I thought it was me, but perhaps, it's you, Google. Perhaps my barely breaking a sweat, walking around looking bored and engaging the other patrons in conversation instead of working out is working to make my pants more loose, but in the Google Mapsverse, doughnuts are salads and my body just isn't dropping the weight the way it should. I don't know. I'm really confuse right now.
