Forward.... April 16, 2014 at 02:57 pm
Mr. Aaron has lived through this vituperate before and it was only because he did the best job heRead More could in beating Babe Ruth's record. So for that he was called horrible names. He stated his opinion, which is fact based but America is not able to face honesty or have that conversation about race. They rather continue to act out with name calling. For centuries, African Americans have been deemed as lazy, stupid, inferior yet when one reaches the level of accomplishments as Mr. Aaron or Mr. Obama, they are still only just a n-word! Not given the respect or appreciation other within their own circles. So if what he says makes you uncomfortable, imagine how uncomfortable it is to live it!

Vinnie B., why are you getting upset with the criticism which is being launched against this orRead More these parents, and rightfully so. Kids are a 24/7 job and they need to be(not should be) under surveillance every second of the day (especially in this day and age). Now if one can't seem to do that and if one cant conform to that, then one does not need children!!!So having said that Vinnie B,. your getting upset over criticism toward these parents is a small price to pay compared to the evil that could have happened to this child by getting hit by a car or by getting picked up by a pedophile or any of the other numerous bad things that could have happened to the child.

How can you "detonate" something that doesn't contain explosives? Was this just a case ofRead More "Panic at the disco"?

Heywood, The Bomb Squad uses an external explosive device to try and detonate whatever is in theRead More bag.
Daniella Ruiz April 16, 2014 at 01:25 pm
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.

Uh Frank, not all people on food stamps are welfare people. A lot are disabled and/or elderly. ItRead More does go down hill from there. Mainly the whole as long as you stay pregnant rule for illegal immigrants. Ect..

Typical behavior from government pigs. They steal our tax dollars, then turn around and spend themRead More on the police state they use to oppress us.
Sandy Murphey April 16, 2014 at 02:10 pm
The best part about all of this is that because there's always "OPPORTUNITY IN CRISIS",Read More this "problem" created more business for this little hydro shop. I love that the women gardeners showed so much support, and online orders increased so much, that he had to hire more people!! YEAH! The DEA helped, but I do feel sorry for those who are punished for using God's gift of nature, and a weed at that!

Next time you're driving, watch the oncoming traffic. Count 20 cars, and I guarantee you, at leastRead More 13 of them will be either phoning or texting. I know in my little area (Cumming-Alpharetta) I can't drive 2 miles to the corner store without having some oncoming moron drift over into my lane because they're too busy chatting, reading, or typing.
Mike April 16, 2014 at 01:00 pm
Reading the various posts here I am struck at the hatred we now have for one another. I believe weRead More are more divided now that at any time in our history with the exception of the Civil War. Obama is a huge success. He has managed to divide our people as no one else has in modern history. A shame that so many have stopped thinking for themselves and instead follow the masses and the political propaganda.
Stu Pidasso April 16, 2014 at 01:49 pm
Mike- there is no hate here. actually a pathetic situation when one feels he is "owed"Read More something rather than earning it by working for it. 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!!!

This was out in my neck of the woods. All really great kids, college bound and starting their adultRead More lives. Having lost a child, I can say these families will mourn for as long as they live, and will have to find a "new normal" as EVERYTHING is changed for them now...I wish them strength, there is nothing quite like burying a child. 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.
