Don't you get bored of making these comments? You comment about gun rights, safety concerns, andRead More 'thugs' on every post on here. You are unrelentingly boring and make the patch less enjoyable to read. Go get a hobby.

It's all real funny until some goes "tax-exempt" at the local 7-11 over a soda pop tax.

Last time I checked, slander and libel were civil cases that didn't involve police raids.

Satire and criticism against a public official has been allowed under the First Amendment since theRead More dawn of the Republic, people. The theory is that if you are in a public office, you sought that kind of notoriety and therefore must tolerate a higher amount of crap from that public than the rank and file citizen. Read either the Supreme Court decision upholding Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine's parody of Jerry Falwell in the 70s, or for those of you less literate, see the movie People Vs. Larry Flynt. They can bust this kid on possession but it's a massive waste to try to get him on poking fun at the mayor!

Getting back to the topic at hand... Religious freedom clause of the 1st Amendment is extended toRead More all regardless of one's religious beliefs or lack thereof. It seem like we can use our freedom of speech not in snipping and sniping at one another, but to use the freedom of speech to promote good will and to do what is right. Protecting religious freedom of other people's religious practice is the right thing to do. To do the contrary is not only wrong, it's also un-American.

The system is flawed and failed. Yes, by all mean bring back days when kids could leave their bikesRead More in the front lawn and run in for a drink. Bring back the days when politicians weren't closing parks because the basketball hoops invited crime. Bring back the days when kids could gather without risk of going to jail. Bring back the days when you could trust the cop on the beat. I pity anyone, mine included, who has the task of raising a child in a world of political injustice and internet bullying. This parents today jump on the band wagon and attack yet their precious little ones are without flaws. Life has yet to come full circle. Beware the evil that dwells within.

I don't like debit cards either, it is a direct line to one's bank account. What I didn't like wasRead More my bank replacing my ATM card with a dual usage ATM/debit card without asking me...I made them cancel it and give me an ATM functionality card only. Some people don't have credit line established yet (like my college student son) and have no choice but to use a debit card instead of credit card. I take precautions and have it assigned to an isolated checking account, and urge son to monitor it closely (set up email alerts), good training for future financial independence.

I never use my debit card I'm any store . Cash majority of the time and credit cards and I disagreeRead More no nobody deserves this to happen to them.

Patch writers hide behind a keyboard spewing venom for anyone who can read or be read to. They areRead More cowards. Their "stories" are just that. Not a word of truth in any of them. This website is funded by politicians, more often than not written by them as well hiding behind an editors tag. It's propaganda Flo....and you are correct.....it is childish as well as unprofessional.

I also note Stanley your claim that covert racism exists in "spades" - your term. YouRead More should be careful on your selection of words. Not that you can prove it, or that you can show that Willie Horton was innocent of the crimes for which he was convicted after he was let out on parole. By the way, Stanley, who appointed "Slam Dunk" Tenet as Director of the CIA? Name every Democratic Senator or representative who disputed that Saddam Hussein possessed WMD before 2003. Did you ever bother to read the reports of the officials sent over after the war who stated that SH had plans to revive his WMD program. Probably not. It doesn't fit in with your mythological presentations. I personally did not agree with Gulf II but not because SH didn't have WMD (that's using 20/20 hindsight). BTW, I voted for Obama in 2008 - lesser of two evils - I was appalled at McCain's flipping and appointing Palin because he thought he could capitalize on the women's vote (assuming women were mad at Obama because he beat out Hillary not because women supported Palin). I have since repented - on his record (Obama's). So you can go and call me a racist, like you do anyone who doesn't bow down to the messiah (Barbara Walter's term, not mine). As I said, it sure beats arguing real facts and using real logic.

Correction - Horton raped a women when he was let out on a weekend furlough while serving a lifeRead More sentence w/o parole for murder - Dukakis supported the furlough program.

David Greenberg April 20, 2014 at 12:39 pm
So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.
