Bill in all his wisdom typed out this comparison:Yet the Black Panthers setup shop during electionsRead More to intimidate white voters and nobody so much as blinks an eye. Philadelphia, "The city of brotherly love", as long as you vote for the brother. ===================================== Right, two idiots pranced in front of cameras of the press in a district that the election before had seventeen voters for John McCain. Wow, you just may be the “intelligence” the KKK is looking for. You live near York?
Bill April 24, 2014 at 12:56 pm
Two idiots ? I'm sure you'd go down to west philly and have the balls to walk past them and callRead More them idiots. And about 2 seconds later they'd knock your teeth out with the night sticks they were carrying.

Oh, so a guy who leaves the safety of his home to hunt down, effectively, another teenager withRead More marketing in the press that is not necessarily "homecoming king" adjacent deserves to be shot. Wow. At least, I do mean at the very least, this man was defending himself in his home. These teens came to him, in his home. Zimmerman had to walk a while toward the "danger" and in so doing instigated a situation that turned deadly.
mystuy April 24, 2014 at 01:12 pm
Saint Trayvon? Really? But it is okay to make two teens who deliberately broke the law by enteringRead More uninvited and violating someone's home seem, well, not so bad...just homecoming king and queen-worthy kids just having a bit of mischief until that mean old grumpy man killed them. Pretty "saintly" handling by the media in that instance. So undeserved and so unfortunate the entire mess.

Jason...this ain't the 1850's wild west, but what you and the idiotic Republican zeolots want areRead More guns everywhere, local militias reporting to local "leaders" and obliterating the rule of law. That's exactly what they have in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and every other country you hate.
Frank Jones April 24, 2014 at 12:45 pm
Tim...You can't see the forest for all of the trees. All Criminals were once Law-Abiding Citizens.Read More All Law-Abiding Citizens may become Criminals. Jails are full of "law-abiding citizens" who...shot their girlfriend, shot their husband, shot their neighbor, shot a stranger, shot and killed a store clerk during their first robbery, etc. The "guns everywhere" law is just another step in the insane arming of America whereby guns will be everywhere, people will "defend" themselves unreasonable and innocent men, women and children will be massacred. Imagine kid's sporting events where parents often get overheated. Now with guns everywhere, look for guns as basic equipment for Pop Warner football, Little League Baseball, etc. People...We need to dial it back, restrict guns to defense of home/office, and hunting. Let the police handle public protection.
Frank Jones April 24, 2014 at 12:53 pm
Dave, and in case you come back with...well, Trayvon Martin was a black kid acting suspiciously andRead More was that he attacked Zimmerman, there are many other cases where "law-abiding" citizens with concealed carry permits have killed truly law-abiding innocent people. Do you remember the recent arrest of a man who fired into a vehicle of kids who were playing their music too loud? Do you remember the recent retired police officer who shot and killed the movie-goer in front of him because the movie-goer had just used a cell phone (at the beginning of the movie)? Law-abiding citizens quickly turn into MURDERED when empowered by their concealed 9mm, 45, 38, etc.

I was aiming that more at a lot of folks whom I truly can't understand. You just happened to be lucky enough to misuse a word and then accuse people of not comprehending what they're reading. As far as labelling me/us as woman-haters, again that was aimed at a few other people. And actually, if I am a troll, I just troll for the opportunity to rip on people for using sweeping generalities.

You cannot offer education to any person who has not had the foundation of paternal guidanceRead More beginning at birth. The maturation of the human entity revolves around initial care as an infant which means communication both oral and by tactile sensation. NURSING an infant is one of the MOST importatnt things that may be offered as a beginning point. Any amount of the process is good, but continuing for the better part of a year is best. TALKING to the infant is also paramount in awakening the receptiveness of the brain as the eyes develop and begin to truly see. Show and demonstrate any and all things. And continue through the pre-teen years. When ANY child is prepared in these ways he or she will be READY to begin secondary schooling and on into the college level and become a resposible, productive AMERICAN. Do as I did. Finish high school. Go to college & get a degree (I paid for myself). Be RESPONSIBLE for yourself. AND Be a GOOD PARENT.. PEPARE your child. THAT is YOUR JOB!!! And THANKS to my parents!!!

@Michael Hipp: Michael. I am with you 100% on this.

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!

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this.
