What’s important at this time is that no media rush to judgment. We need to make sure the accused did not have any sort of Confederate Battle Flag items in his home or on his person. Until then we can’t be certain what his motives were. I fully expect the media to do their standard due diligence with this crime.

It’s our fault. She just needs the $15/HR she deserves then she’d be a better employee.
I am sure this was caused by Man Made Global Warming.

It’s ok. I have no reason to hate her.
We can live without her music. Let’s see how long she can last without our farms.

Right, the story clearly said a lot of days he gets rides in between. Maybe he takes a nap on his break. Maybe he has a friend or neighbor on the route where he can sleep a bit? Whatever the case, if true, he’s not getting a lot of sleep. Point is, we don’t know every detail or the circumstances. It’s certainly odd, but I agree there’s way too much callousness with a lot of these responses.

Hoosier75 – You realize there’s more than one Osceola in the country? Do you also realize the article said it was in Iowa? Thus, the link from the Des Moines Register. It is indeed brutally cold in Iowa in the winter. Perhaps you saw the picture of him with the surrounding snow? Obviously not Florida.
Maybe you need to read carefully before you start calling others “dumbass” and saying “idiots are out in droves”. You do appear correct, but they’re looking you right in the mirror.

Were they filmed in Georgia? This is talking about film locations (which I think they are better choices than some of these listed) and not straight up what movie is associated with each state.
Right again! I read someone below saying “not a mention of Jesus” in ONE song they listened to. For crying out loud! I don’t know how anyone can listen to “Awake & Alive” or “Rebirthing” and not see the Christian overtones in their music. Direct mention of Christ or not, the sentiment is there. Even the apostle Paul took elements of the culture in his day to spread the word. I don’t see how using music, and especially the music of Skillet is any different than that approach. “In it, not of it” doesn’t mean “none of it”, it simply means not to love and attach ourselves to the things of this world. Many of Skillets songs “preach” exactly that!

Geez. Some of these comments are just absolutely ignorant about the band. I realize some of this has to do with general taste in music, and I’m sure there’s some generational difference as well. Here’s my advice for some of the critics. Check out three of their new songs off the new album. Start with “American Noise”, mild enough for anyone to like with a great message. Then listen to “Sick of It” and “Rise”….then come back to us and tell us they’re not a good band with a good message.
Just wait until Michele runs for president in 2016 !
At least he has a better weave than Michelle.

SAMNJOEYSGRAMA is right. This happens every now and then. Over the years I’ve heard several stories of farmers having heart problems or other medical issues that cause them to fall in a pen. Once that happens the hogs can move in like sharks.

We need Ray Stantz to figure this out. “Gozer the Gozerian? Good evening. As a duly-designated representative of the City, County and State of New York, I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to your place of origin, or to the next convenient parallel dimension.”
Hmmmm a chalkboard, stick-on cut outs, connecting the dots (albeit in this case false and misleading). Hey…Glenn, these nimrods are copying your presentation.

I was a delegate at the Nebraska GOP Convention. The real story is how media drummed up that we would have a chaotic convention due to the two factions not finding common ground. Instead we had a spirited, but orderly and respectful convention. Our GOP Chairman Mark Fahleson deserves credit, as well as Laura Ebke the Chair of the Nebraska Republican Liberty Caucus. As a mainstream Tea Party person in the middle I am hopeful we’ll be able to build on unity found this past weekend.

@REBELPATRIOT I doubt she’s GenX though. Technically GenX is now in their 30′s and 40′s. Thistle is likely GenY or a Millennial. The Xers once thought to be very liberal are turning out to be libertarians and conservatives – Reagan and Rush babies that have good memories of 80′s. It’s GenY that’s addicted to video games, welfare, drugs, and into all this new age spiritualism and anarchy. Of course, there’s exceptions and you are correct about the disaster of public education on all generations.

Cruel? You all do realize the cat is dead, right? Not something most of us would do. But come on…it’s a dead, taxidermied animal. And I suppose you’re all fine with it hanging on the wall? Why is this different?
“Meet the “Orvillecopter” created by Dutch artist Bart Jansen. Jansen took his taxidermied cat — Orville — and strapped him to four of these remote controlled helicopters.”
