When I was a kid — I’m in my 70′s — I was taught that your respected ALL adults and my siblings and I were reminded regularly of the Ten Commandments. Something sadly lacking in the younger generations today. How can you respect others if you have NO respect for yourself and the actions of most kids today speak very loudly to that. Reading this article helps restore my faith that all is NOT lost to the youngsters of today.

A friend of mine worked her entire life and retired at 65. No sooner had she retired than her mom passed; then her aunt and all that was left was her father. Her father a WW2 Vet gets next to nothing from the VA and SS was born in those “donut years” where those people in that time span of years –I dont recall the time span — receive LESS than others both before and after the period I mentioned. Physically he’s impossible to manage and putting him into an asstd living or a retirement home at $20K per month is beyond her limited resources. She is the only member left in the family so her obligations to her dad cant be shared by others. When the federal govt decided no longer to fund “old age homes” and the like, they gave the managing of handicapped seniors and just older folks over to companies that owned and managed hotels and resorts and said that they the govt would assure that the proper care would be given to all those who would be kept in these “retirement homes and asstd living homes”…..NOTHING could be further from the truth….many of these places that I have visited I wouldn’t put my dog into let alone a family member….and their care at the hands of these “nurses” is a disgrace…..So now this lady who retired almost 4 years ago has to spend everyday taking care of her father who has next to NO kind of money….this has been going on now for everyday for coming up on 4 years….the woman can get no help and has spent all her time tending her dad ..

As a former Staten Island resident I can attest that the West Shore Expressway and the service roads thereto–where this accident took place –can be VERY confusing to navigate if someone isn’t familiar with them. Add to that, that the roads and their directions are poorly marked……..as someone in the story has already mentioned…..Yup, you add fog coming off the water or heavy rain and you’ve got an accident just waiting to happen……such a waste of life….its a shame

Years ago in midtown Manhattan one afternoon I was surrounded by four black teenagers; possibly they were in their early 20″s. I was visiting from out of state and was wearing my Stetson hat. I was standing on a street corner waiting for a bus when they approached me talking about “this hick, what’s he doing in our city” and how “He doesn’t belong here and he should be taught a lesson”…..There was one kid who was doing most of the talking; encouraged by his buddies the insults got louder and more vile….I had been looking uptown for my bus and ignoring their words. Finally, I had had enough….I’m 6 1″ and a 200 pounder…I was wearing very dark sunglasses. I slowly turned around to face this kid with his big mouth and his friends. Ever so slowly, I took off my sunglasses and put them in my inside pocket of my jacket, slowly unbuttoned my suit jacket and leaned forward into this kids personal space and just STARED into his eyes…..the kid realized he had crossed the line with me and turned to his buddies and said “I’ve had it with this hick, let’s split…..
True story….and no sooner had they left than all the other people who had been waiting at the bus stop with me, came back to rejoin me…..pity that people are too cowardly to stand up to these POS…

There were no light bulbs in the stairs….u would think that someone wether in maintenance or at a minimum a resident would have taken it upon themselves for safety’s sake to install a light bulb……but that being said, I know the neighborhood and the mindset of most of those residents…….they’re all Obama voters…..they’re all on the dole……need I aay more ?
I'm a property manager, and we have to have lights in apartment buildings in the common areas that tenants use. ESPECIALLY with state funded apartments, if we get a tenant who's got a section 8 voucher or is getting assistance from a state org. an inspection has to be done. One of our apts failed because of a missing globe on a bulb! Crazy! If you work hard and don't want assistance you get screwed, but if you're on the dole then my homeowners have to pay out the a** to make sure the places are up to Ritz Carlton status. It's so backwards...I've got a tenant who's got sec 8 and the amount per month they allot her for housing is $1400 a month! I wish I could live in a place that cost 1400 to rent...but alas..I work so no such luck

Sharpton is a PARASITE living off the misery of others……..the very fact that NBC hired this rear end of a horse to represent their station on ANY level in any manner, demonstrates what a bunch of swamp scum suckers the management of this once fine station have sunk to.
Don't bother me - I haven't watched NBC for years...
But then I can't say anything "nice" about the other networks...they still give him "time"

I went to Parochial Elementary School and High School. Then Nuns beat us in elementary school and the Brothers smacked us in High School. On my first day of school at a new school, a kid bullied me and I knocked him on his butt…..I told that story to a younger family member and was told that in this day and age, I’d be suspended from school for defending myself…..Its a pretty sad world folks where a kid can defend himself or herself….

I used to punch holes in paper targets with 38 reloads in my S&W 357 revolver,,,,Now since the neighborhood has changed, I keep it fully loaded with 357 ammo and within reach from my bed….

profanity is the effort of a weak man’s mind to try to express himself…..
I think that above statement speaks volumes with regard to the commentary. exhibited in the film clip

there exists a litany of others who came before him who had fortune and fame and were adored by the masses; yet they too were unhappy with their lot in life…..its such a waste of a human life………pity……
Vet, depression has nothing to do with your lot in life and whether or not you are happy with it. It's a disease in your brain. It's no different than any other disease except it exists in your brain. It's a chemical imbalance and is not controllable without medication. Unfortunately, medication doesn't work on everyone.

TD is a Canadian bank system. That being said, they are all over NY and NJ and I’m sure other states too.

I dated a woman years ago who had survived a brutal rape. Two black guys took turns on her, beat her so bad that she lost sight in her left eye…using a carving fork they continually stabbed her with it;finally they put a gun in her mouth and pulled the trigger — it misfired. She told me many more details of the rape and it took her years to get over it and STILL after 20 years every once in a while she has flashbacks. Their is NO penalty severe enough for these animals who commit these crimes. Her position was that they should take all the deviates; the pedophiles; the rapists; the drug dealers, the deviate “gays” —-(God I HATE that term; there’s NOTHING gay about their perversions I think F**s is much more fitting a term). —- put them with their perverted lifestyle and put them all on an uninhabited island somewhere and let them fend for themselves. Don’t provide them with housing or food or medical support and let them make do with whatever they can find on the island or themselves ….Never return to island unless of course to add more deviates to the population. Simple solution and it won’t cost the tax payer very much money….
