I think this story is a perfect example of what entitlements do to a person’s state of mind to be responsible.
I have traveled the US for over 15 years in business and begging in the US is an art and at times can be very deceptive and creative. I am always amazed at the length some people will go through to get a buck; Like the guy at the hotel parking lot dressed in a suite and tie saying he needed a couple of bucks because his rental car was stolen along with his wallet and ID, or the gal who would park in back of the car so you could not back out, hold a button to her throat, talk raspy and ask for bucks (caught her shopping in local store loading a basket of groceries into a very nice truck) and she spoke to her friend very well without the button!
Ajohn, Oh I think we all care and very much There is not much we can do at this point. But, when the request comes, we had all better be ready.

Proud Vet: I would venture to guess that every war since the beginning of time leaves more than a few warriors wondering what the hell that was all about. The death and brutality are burned into our souls I wonder about Viet Nam on more than a few occasions and wonder what the hell Johnson (war criminal) was thinking. We can always perceive underlying causes that brought leaders to war, and it is usually is not purely protecting US freedom, and ALWAYS end up killing a lot of people that do no or did not deserve it. Your statement about Bush senior killing Ted Kennedy, well I think Kennedy most likely killed himself because of booze and a hard life in general. If your writing about John Kennedy or Bobby, I would more inclined to think the progressives did him/them in because they was more moderate than almost any Democrat in history and had a lot of Democrat colleagues very uncormftable especially southern democrats like Johnson. Finally you want to bring hurt on those that don’t feel the way you do. I’d say you need counseling.

They tried their best with “Climate Disruption” which is even more inclusive than “Climate Change”. That went no where fast, because the prediction of more hurricanes and tornadoes just did not happen. We need to keep in mind that during the cretaceous period that lasted 92M years it was much hotter than today and according to science, evolutionary life on earth exploded with birds, flowering plants and extensive increase in water born animals making it to land. It would seen the world loves warmth. That is why I am heading to the Caribbean next winter. to get away from the cold….

“The same thing I’ve done since I first came to the Senate.”: I guess that would be to never address a budget, tell lies about Republican candidates, Manipulate land in Nevada for your gain, Suck up to Obama, block every vote that you do not like and continue to spew stupid comments? Really Harry we expect nothing less. Our only hope is that your exercise equipment still has an unshakeable grudge against you. Now we can only hope McConnell acts like a leader; unlikely.

I have heard this woman speak many times and she is a wide eyed, fast talking points machine. She does not have an original thought in her brain.
That is precisely what would have happened 50 years ago when neighbors looked after neighbors.

Nor will this be reported on the evening news. I don’t a thinking person can be surprised at all by this.

cold beer: I have never heard of gangs coming to aid of other gang members. They usually run as far and fast away as they can because they know they are outgunned, on the wrong side of the law and at best may lose their source of income, and at worst get killed. I believe the real issue is people want to get their film on YouTube to claim some little piece of fame. Or at worst want to nail police for some perceived infraction. To make accusations about the guy filming is speculation and calling it the “THE REAL SORY” is totally inappropriate.

With a son employed in law enforcement, I think the equipment they have is over the top; however they do face some very dangerous situations. To ORDER people inside away from windows is in my opinion not within the law, to suggest for it their own safety would be more appropriate. I really believe our propensity to start filming police for what we hope will be big on YouTube or because many hope they can nail the police for what can be arguably wrong tactics causes police to be defensive. The fundamental issue is our government wanted a police force equipped and organized like our army; well local law enforcement got it and now they will act like an army. As a VFW I can tell you this looks no different, except the neighbors don’t start shooting at you too.

You don’t, hunters do however like being in the field and typically they “scope out” where the animals are moving and where the big ones hang out; a good hunter knows how the animals move year round. The article also read that he was responsible for the lease. You must not be a hunter.
No, haven't hunted since I was a teen in the 70's but I fight hunters for prime tourist destinations in Colorado, but I thought it was usually October- May?

This conflict is so much more than just “real-estate”. Jews could secede 90% of Israel and the “Palestinians” would still not be happy. “Palestinians” are Muslin and Muslims contend that Jews do not deserve to live, just as they contend that the west in general should be wiped off the face of the earth. This is about a religion and its intolerance for any opposing views.

The stupidity of Harry’s statement is mind boggling and what is up with Martin Heinrich (?) he needs to go back to grade school for a lesson in geography; does he not know that Nevada is not a “border state”? The scary part of this whole issue is about half the people in the U.S. buy this garbage…

This is very good news, because as I get older, I seem to be getting healthier!

perfect response. I can see one now of Harry Reid’s forehead:

The thing I love about professors is their support for diversity of thought; NOT!

With two exceptions: 1. in the short term there will be thousands of non-medical government employees in between you and your doctor. 2. As ACA progresses it will be single payer and there will be tens of thousands of non-medical government employees between you and your doctor, if you can find one. This whole debacle is like the Department of education created by the second worse president, James Earl Carter. We now pay more for education than any country in the western world and we are at about 24th in outcome. That is because there are tens of thousands of people between you and your child’s education, and of course they know what is best; if we just had more money. I too am tired, tired of people like you, who just cannot seem to figure it out.

Soon the only approved way to smoke will be pot. I think marihauana wins approval because it dumbs down people and makes them malleable and easy to control, which is really what the government wants.

The sad fact of the matter is simple, with approaching 50% of the populace on the dole, most people could not afford to eat like Michele, even if they wanted to. This little salad pictured, with what seems to be a boutique cheese, is composed of nice little greens that are difficult to come by and expensive, because they are not widely available, difficult to grow and transport, and have a very short shelve life. Most are grown in expensive, highly maintained green houses and sold to high end restaurants, and of course, the white house. Please don’t give me the story of patio gardening, it is not that cheap nor easy, nor can it provide much for a family of three or four.
