This little boy is very clever to have figured out how to crawl inside the machine. He deservesRead More more attentive parents. I hope they are court ordered to parenting classes. For what it's worth, approximately 30 years ago, I saw a toddler swathed in diapers wander out the front door of his home. The door was wide open. He started walking down the street. I parked my car and gently held him in my arms, looking for a family member to appear. No such luck. The toddler was nonverbal and unafraid. So we walked to the police station across the street. The cops on duty immediately recognized him & thought it was funny. The toddler was a known wanderer and the cops assured me he had a loving family. REALLY? They took him back home and did not write an incident report. It disturbed me then and now that the parents and police were so nonchalant. Child neglect is amusing to some people. I am not one of them.

Natick news - Nebraska news -- well at least they both start with the letter N. I said this before IRead More think everyone should not open any article on their local Patch unless they see the name of their community in it. They are trying to trick up with news. We see a headline and think - in my case - Natick - and it is not. NO NAME - NO CLICK! I think if the click rate goes down for Patch, it will hurt them advertising wise and then maybe they will listen to us that we want LOCAL NEWS! Who wants to join me in my NO NAME No CLICK campaign?

strange how we respond just as the terrorists desire us to. the media commemorates each incident asRead More if it were a new profit center to mine for every last click. whole populations now sit in fear of another 'something' about to happen, never again, fully safe like we were in the good old days of the cold war? once these bstrds hit us deep inside our own turf we have not become stronger, but rather 'hardened', emboldened in our delusions of ultimate superiority, no longer safe on our 'island of north america'. each of these events changes us all even imperceptably, forcing us to accept their motives, their ideals, their imam imposed concept of living. we act in unison, determined to show them we are not affected, yet that very demonstration reveals our inner need to respond, to re-affirm our own injury, each of those crowd-felt sympathies we all cling to, even if for the brief moment of our 'crowd'. be strong, and further, be alert, be conspicuous in manner in which you care for each other. shy not away from those who seek your death, but do not embrace them, as they fein no challenge to seek close to your demise.

Here's a great idea for Liberals to ponder. We could weight each American's vote based on theRead More amount of taxes they pay. The more taxes you pay, the more your vote counts!! That's fair. I paid for it so I say how we spend it and how it's run and who's gonna run it!!! That's fair. No?? If you went by last years $1.3 Trillion IRS haul, the top 10% of wage-earners contributed 71% of the taxes. So, their votes would collectively be 71% of the popular vote. On the other hand, the bottom 50% of wage-earners contributed only 2% of all tax-revenue. So, collectively all their votes would be 2% of the popular vote. In fact, well over 40% of Americans paid no taxes at all. Where do they get off deciding how tax dollars get spent and by whom? OK...I can here the thundering herd of Liberals coming for me now.

As to my Social Security, I would estimate that over a 40 year period I loaned that fund $300,000+ and will be lucky to extract $200,000. Lol. Thanks again for taxing the minds of liberals on issues that they either do not know of or do not wish to speak to.

Legally, it is definitely the parents responsibility.

If you get convicted of DWI you are issued new plates that start with the letter W followed by numbers. PE. W35478. So everyone knows your a drunk.

This war on MJ began with Nixon and then Regan escalated it when he declared a War on Drugs. A warRead More we have been loosing and will continue to loose with the tactics our corrupt Government continues to use. Such as the one for Heroin. Since they can't beat it they decide to join it by becoming the LEGAL dealers. SO it is illegal to use heroin and you must stop taking that drug and switch over to the Government approved drug of Methadone. Ever see or hear of anyone getting off Methadone once they start. Well only if they are paying for it out of pocket and then can't afford it. Then the clinic does what they call an Administrative wean!!! Because after all if the dealer isn't getting paid you are not getting the drug!!! Now isn't that the way it is with any street dealer??? SO that is how the Government is handing the Heroin crisis in this country!!! Way to go pharmaceutical companies (Cooperate drug kingpins)_ SO now the question comes about medical Marijuana and the Federal Government does not want this because the big cooperate pharmaceutical companies have not devised a way in which they can have total control over this substance and financially rape every living soul in this county that would want it or need it. And so until this happens the Federal Governement will continue to fight against Marijuana being removed from the Class 1 drug list. Oh BTW just a little side note to all of you who continue t believe that you are living in the United States of America. You are not, we have become the Incorporated states of America. No longer a country where our government is one run by the people, of the people, or for the people!!!

It is understandable that people assumed the worst when learning about a 35 year old taking photosRead More in a school. I certainly thought someone was casing the place for a future crime when I first heard the report. BUT...if you knew James you would know that he is a perpetual man child who often posts photos of himself in the woods and other remote areas. I know this is hard to believe, but if you knew James it would make sense. I'm in no way making excuses for trespassing. He knows he screwed up, and is upset how this reflects on his character.

No, Klopps. It's perfectly fine for you to question my intelligence in the fashion you did. No oneRead More should infer any slight from your comments, of course. The bottom line is that the punishment so outweighs this "crime" - now that he has been indefinitely suspended - that I have serious doubts about the judgementdemonstrated by St. A's Administration. They have taken a teachable moment, and instead, have used the student to cover their "Christian" asses. IMHO they have not dealt with this matter as true Christians, in the least.

As both an alumni and a former faculty member at this school, I can confidently assure the readingRead More public that as an institution, St. Anthony's High School is a hot-bed of discrimination. In fact, its inhumane culture not only exists amongst the poorly-educated student body, but it is equally, and perhaps even more rampant amongst the adult administration, faculty, and staff. Female faculty members are repeatedly passed over for deserved and overdue promotions, elderly faculty members have faced drastically inflated pay cuts due simply to their age, and those who are not practitioners of an outdated and conservative Catholic religion are treated as inferior. Worst of all, homosexuals are commonly verbally assaulted and generally loathed and mocked. I have personally overheard, in their faculty lounge, phrases such as the following, in accepted, common, everyday usage: "the n-word" "the s-word referring to latinos" "words such as ret***ed, in referring to students with special needs, and most memorably, that "gay marriage will be brought to an end when the last fu***ng f***ot dies of AIDS." Even when these statements have been made in front of third party witnesses and were reported to Principal Gary Cregan, NO disciplinary action is ever taken. Nor is any action taken to help the perpetrators overcome their ignorance, racism, sexism, ageism, or homophobia. Even more shockingly, it is often the VICTIM that is treated unprofessionally and without respect - as well as terminated simply for who they are. To them, the presence of an open homosexual calls for that employee's harassment, mistreatment, and unjustified termination. If any members of the public would like to learn more about this revelation, feel free to comment to this post and a meeting and/or interview will gladly be arranged. A group of outraged members of this educational community will be actively making the public aware of these injustices, in order to protect our children, colleagues, citizens.

Why not move down to the inner city and live there for 6 months, then get back to us!! it should be a real eye opener for you!! I work 6-7 days a week to enjoy what I have, even though i have little time to do so, I'm not complaining, but it bothers me that i am penalized by the way of extra taxes, fee's , etc., to help those who have no intention of trying to help themselves.. I have TWO children, NOT 5, 6, or 7 simply because I cannot afford it, and would NOT EXPECT the government to take care of them for me!!!

Here's the story I posted this morning and was censored by PATCH Pistol Turned to ‘SubmachineRead More Gun’ By Clueless Media April 15, 2014 | Filed under Constitutional Issues,corruption,Culture,Culture Of Corruption,Democrats,Dumb Criminals,Gun control,Liberals,Media | Posted by Warner Todd Huston Once again we get proof of how mindless and clueless the media is, how they don’t fact check, but just mindlessly pass on each other’s bad work ad infinitum. This time it happened with a story about a criminal who used a .22 caliber pistol in a crime but one clueless reporter turned it into a “submachine gun” and hundreds of his mindless colleagues followed suit passing the lie on and on and on. Clueless reporter Darryl Holliday of DNAinfo Chicago, a website that caters to local news, reported on an incident that was perpetrated by a man from West Garfield Park who began wielding a .22 caliber pistol in a grocery store because he didn’t want to pay the 22 cents tax on a bottle of pop he was trying to buy. Holliday “reported” that the crook “pulled an Intratec submachine gun out of a Gucci satchel,” and in the next paragraph again claimed the piece was a “submachine gun” saying, “Officers arrived on the scene shortly after to find Shelton’s Gucci bag open on the counter as well as 15 bullets in the blue steel .22-caliber submachine gun–eight live rounds in one magazine, five in another and one in the chamber, according to court documents.” Of course, it is clear that reporter Holliday doesn’t have any idea what he’s rambling on about. The .22 caliber Intratec pistol is not a “submachine gun. It is a semi-automatic pistol like every other semi-auto pistol. A submachine gun is an automatic rifle that uses pistol cartridges instead of larger ones such as rifle or armor piercing cartridges. A one-hand-held version of this weapon is called a “machine pistol,” but it is also fully automatic. The Intratec pistol used in this crime is not a fully automatic weapon, however. It is semi-auto-meaning it fires only once when the trigger is pulled. It does not expel a stream of bullets like a fully automatic weapon does. Yet, as soon as this story went live on April 13, dozens of other so-called news outlets took up the claim that this dolt used a “submachine gun” in his crime. All one need do is put “Nahshon Shelton submachine gun” in any search engine and dozens of so-called news stories will be revealed saying that the criminal used a “submachine gun.” It all just shows that whenever you see a report on guns in the Old Media establishment, you should not trust it. They don’t even know the proper definitions of firearms terms and from there all their “facts” are suspect.

Appreciated are the messages of respect and sympathy. It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.
