    Very biblical. Wish we had some of that on a national level. Take the medical coverage away from a whole list of people for say, a year, just to let them wallow in it. Maybe take one of their kids and put them in a facility somewhere for an indeterminate period of time

    After pledging to hold weekly demonstrations over climate change, Jane Fonda was arrested on Friday as she was among those protesting in Washington, D.C. on the Capitol. Video of the actress being placed in handcuffs and escorted to a police vehicle was posted to social media.

    "Today, the United States Capitol Police arrested 16 individuals for unlawfully demonstrating on the East Front of the U.S. Capitol," Eva Malecki, spokeswoman for the Capitol police told The Hollywood Reporter. All were charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding, she said.

    The actress was protesting with the group Oil Change International over the climate crisis. "I will be on the Capitol every Friday, rain or shine, inspired and emboldened by the incredible movement our youth have created," Fonda wrote on her own website on Thursday.

    I'm sorry but since when is the United States responsible for everything the middle east countries do?...That whole region has been fighting for hundreds of years, does the US need to be involved in all of their fighting in the 21st century?...Some people and the media often complain the US has their hands in everything then hypocritically complains when the US doesn't get involved or gets out of involvement...

    Agreed but we do have some culpability. The media doesn't exactly paint a clear picture. We blew up Iraq and made a fine mess. Maybe the situation had stabilized before the first precipitous withdrawal and then poof, Caliphate.

    We only have a fraction of the troop strength in Syria now. You could argue that 1000 troops or less means we have already withdrawn.

    But I wonder what the hell will fill the vacuum if those last few do go. Probably Iran.

    Sex offenders suing Butts County Sheriff over 'No Trick-or-Treat' signs

    A group of sex offenders in Butts County is suing the Sheriff's Office for posting "No Trick-or-Treating" signs on their homes. The Butts County Sheriff said he's taking action to keep kids safe on Halloween by posting the signs, but the sex offenders argue this is a violation of their rights to free speech and to privacy.

    "I'm just not sure that this kind of action makes your kids any safer," said the lead attorney for the petitioners, Mark Yurachek. "It just makes your constitutional rights less safe."

    Three registered sex offenders are now suing the Sheriff's Office for placing these warning signs on their doors.

    “The trespass stuff is pretty clear. They’re coming onto their property and putting the signs on there,” said Yurachek.

    Their attorney said the Georgia State Sex Offender Registry does not require offenders to post these signs, so they shouldn't be forced by deputies to post them outside.

    “They are individuals who have been brave enough to not be afraid to let the public know that they are registered sex offenders, but are also not willing to tolerate this unlawful action by the sheriff.”

    Yurachek said, in fact, the registrants have no obligation to inform the public of their status once they are registered.

    “The law allows the sheriff to put a list of registered sex offenders at his office, at the courthouse, on the internet,” Yuracheck said. “It does not allow him to go door-to-door telling people you have a sex offender living next door to you.”

    In a Facebook post, Sheriff Gary Long said he will argue to the federal court that he is protecting children and following Georgia law by placing these signs. FOX 5 News spoke with him in 2018 when he first started the initiative, a project he said will stop predators from taking advantage of a fun night

    “We just want to eliminate any possibility that any of these children in our county becoming prey to a sexual predator," the sheriff said.

    "I understand that there are a lot of people who think this is a great idea, who think 'Yeah this protects my kids, but what they should be thinking about is 'Does this protect my rights?'" Yuracheck said.
