How would you have felt if you were one of those who caught a $10,000 Gold Certificate like the one above that were thrown out of a window of a burning Treasury Department warehouse one day in 1935, but later finding out that they were cancelled and worthless>

With True Blood, The Twilight movies, The Vampire Diaries, and other TV shows, vampires are becoming popular. What is it about them? Would you date one? Would you fall in love with or marry one, knowing that he/she is immortal and you aren’t? And if it got that far, would your love for him/her make you think of asking them to turn you in to a vampire, so the 2 of you could be together forever? And if you were a vampire, how would you use your powers? For good or for evil? Since you would be immortal, what would you do to keep from becoming bored of your existence?

Could you take a life to save a life? Last week’s daring defense of her home by Oklahoma Mom Sarah McKinley, who shot and killed an armed man who was trying to break into her house was a good example of self defense used properly. If this writer had been in the same situation, even though he’s uneasy around guns, he would have done the same thing, to protect himself and his family. A man/woman’s home is their castle, they have a right to defend it if lives are in danger.
On the other hand, does a person who is being bullied have the right to use deadly force against said bully? A Florida high schooler who was being assaulted by a kid who had been bullying him for months stabbed him to death. The judge said that the state’s stand your ground law and self defense applied, since the kid had a reasonable fear that bodily harm was going to happen. As always, these events should always be judged on a case to case basis.
