Break in someones house, get shot, that simple. Now to go up and shoot the boy directly in the faceRead More with him already down??? That raises a question. Then go wait for a full day to call and notify the police, now that raises a question.?? What the hell is the bottom line problem with this man that he would OVERKILL, and Keep the bodies for a full day without calling the police.?

Pretty simple to me. My church can decide whether guns are allowed, not the government. My bar canRead More decide whether guns are allowed, not the government. See where I'm going?

You go to church to pray, school to learn, bar to drink and socialize. But somehow a gun would makeRead More the whole experience much more free if you have a gun. Idiots!!! When you mix this kind of stupidity with the mass hatred running rampant in America, you open the door to lawlessness. A dead person can't plead their case. So now it's has been brought to national attention, more and more people will not vacation, visit this backward state. As businesses and churches see a decline in those who don't want patronize a business that allows such foolishness, then one might ask, why do we need guns where we pray? At a bar where alcohol already brings out the worse in some people. No more bar fights, just bar killings. Before this law was signed, tell me, how where your rights infringed upon? Is your gun your lover? You sure do act as it is your breathe. This is just another reason why this Governor needs to be voted out. He protects his building from this law though. He totally fumbled the traffic clearance from our last snow storm and left us stranded. He has kept thousands from getting medical insurance by not expanding the medicaid act, lying on how the state can't afford it even though it's already paid for by the federal government. Allowing hospitals to close and hard working people to loose their job, then their homes and people to loose their lives. The NRA has mad many so afraid that the big bad government is going to take your guns. Not so, they just need you to buy more guns so the gun manufacturers become more profitable. Yet they tap on your emotions and you fall for it all the time. God Bless us all!

wow. almost all of these comments are so obviously written by woman haters, the kind of men andRead More women that just cannot stand to see a woman in a position of authority. i have just one question for all of you who think you have all the stats on Ms. Clinton, can any of you name the politician that was held responsible for the thousands of lives lost from Ground Zero? You want to talk about fools in government? Remember, this was not the first attack on the World Trade Center? Who let it happen? shame on all of you and your so called facts. your behavior is apparent. feeling sorry for all the women, young and old, who are part of your families. i bet you don't even let them vote or drive cars

What kind of a stupid, malicious idiot would pull that sort of a prank? I agree that the kid whoRead More made the phone call to the SWAT team about his opposing video games player was a sore loser, which is why he did that, but he should be criminally prosecuted, made to pay the bill, and perhaps do some community service in order to pay off that big bill. Hopefully, that kid will learn a lesson if he is prosecuted for his prank, which he should be.
nascarblue April 24, 2014 at 07:24 am
this "to me" is not funny, the swat teams are used for serious issues, hostage taking,Read More etc. to have a swat team called to a home behind a video game is stupid, these swat members are trained to save lives, etc. to be called to a home behind a video game is not funny, what happens if a REAL call comes in and swat is needed there, I hope they catch the idiot that called swat and he gets what he/she deserves

TO THE EDITOR....I'm seriously disappointed by the removal of peoples comments overnight.... If youRead More cannot see the flow and context of comments made,, how is one supposed to understand the comments you read? The young man, Black Panther was defending himself and his position in the face of raw bigotry and you removed that?? When you invite unfettered comments from people on a forum such as this,, CENSORSHIP HAS NO PLACE. You either put on your big boy/girl panties and allow Free Speech to run it's course,,, of you SHUT THIS DOWN. I'm so surprised at your actions. Not good!

Gay marriage should not be allowed. There are other states that allow it move there.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 04:11 am
Chris. If you are insulted by the word piddly then perhaps you shouldn't be coming to messageRead More boards to discuss anything. If you have any answer at all to any of the points that I made, make them. If you don't feel that you can tackle the issues that I poised, then don't bother posting at all. The last time that I took the advice of a religious nutbag, I was under ten.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 04:12 am
Rebecca. Your opinion on my marriage rights matters less than none. You don't get to vote on myRead More marriage rights, you don't get to have any say at all in my marriage rights. Marriage equality is guaranteed in the constitution of the United States, as verified more than a dozen times by SCOTUS. If you want to live in a country where your bigoted whims make law, then start your own country. As if anybody cares what you think anyway.
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.
Susan Harris April 23, 2014 at 10:12 pm
Tamara, what social studies standards are you talking about? The Common Core only covers standardsRead More in literacy and math. There are no CC standards for science or history. Are you talking about state standards?
Tamara April 23, 2014 at 11:35 pm
Common Core has science and social studies standards - they were written after math and ELA - theyRead More have not been implemented yet. They are more controversial so math and ELA was put thru first to pave the way.
Tamara April 24, 2014 at 12:18 am
Many articles on CC not being validated, and reducing standards and achievement - not the other wayRead More around... http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?ca=7bf08782-fe34-49d9-ba23-f95e21905f04&c=d6f00600-ac37-11e3-8bb0-d4ae528ed502&ch=d7b7c2d0-ac37-11e3-8bc0-d4ae528ed502

TO MICHAEL BRENNICK: Leftist, Democra... WHAT? You think Comcast is part of the so-calledRead More "liberal" media (which, by the way, doesn't even exist)? Are you freakin' KIDDIN' me?

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!
