    I absolutely hate that I read this article with skepticism, because it would really be great if people were friendly & helpful like this, but the way things are now, you just can’t be too careful. I think the gift card was what pushed it over the top for me. I’m suspicious of this person’s motives and I hate to feel that way, but I do.

    Well said!

    Thank you! Exactly!

    Thank you! Exactly!

    These children are in Kindergarten! Fer cryin’ out loud! As a parent, why would you want to teach your child that it’s ok to purposely hurt another child’s feelings? At that age, Valentines are just cute little cartoon drawings that convey friendship & good will. The kind you buy in a package, meant for young children, are usually unisex & age-appropriate. When they’re teenagers, they’ll have plenty of heartbreak to deal with, rejection, teasing, bullying, etc. Do we really need to start that in Kindergarten? Come to it, another good reason to homeschool!!

    Don’t think you’re crazy at all. I’m trying to prepare also–I believe that economic collapse AT BEST is right on the horizon–God does warn His people, if we are listening to His promoting we aren’t crazy! Best of luck to you & God bless!

    Can’t believe this drivel was on tv news, except that’s just the type of story secularists would run to make Christians look stupid. And it does, so mission accomplished. These people are idiots–the whole “holy dirt” is a ridiculous embarrassment–if I was Catholic I’d be speaking out against these ridiculous things. This doesn’t represent mainstream Christianity–it’s just stupid.

    Hey Mil Mom, you never know–my daughter is a public school teacher & both of her children go to private school. That tells me all I need to know about the state of public schools. My other 2 grandchildren are homeschooled & I’m very relieved & grateful that my daughters have made those choices in today’s world.

    That’s what I always thought it meant–that whatever comes your way, you can deal with it because Christ will give you strength, both good things and bad, He is your strength. I’ve never been one of those “name it and claim it” people, I think that’s misguided at best and frequently harmful.

    What is this, 1955? This is beyond ridiculous. If we aren’t color-blind by now, I guess we never will be. The Al Sharptons & Jesse Jacksons of the world need to shoulder their fair share of blame for this too.

    You just can’t be too careful when it involves your precious children, call me paranoid, that’s ok. I’d rather be paranoid with living children, thankyouverymuch. I’d never send my children (& in my case now, grandchildren) off to public school, for many reasons, but certainly safety is right up there. I know it’s hard in this economy, but if something is important enough you can usually find a way. I urge all parents to find a way to get your kids out of public school. Your sacrifices now will absolutely be worth it–what is your child worth?

    Thank you. Exactly. America, where the .gov spends billions on foreign wars & foreign aid, lets illegals stream through porous borders with impunity, spends millions so the first family can have lavish vacations, but doesn’t have the most basic of needs–quality medical care for everyone, rich or poor. And the hatred for the poor, the horrible, spite-filled rhetoric that spews forth from so many who would characterize themselves as followers of Christ, both scares & sickens me. We have to pay taxes, that’s never going to change, but we can change how that money is spent–saving a young girl’s life or giving foreign aid by the billions to countries that hate us? God help us, and I truly mean that. (Not a democrat, didn’t vote for Obama)

    This kind of medical tragedy happens all the time & most people don’t have anyone to help them out. This is a wonderful gesture, but if only the business owner had provided insurance to his employees in the first place (as many, if not most, employers used to do–my husband & I worked for 40 years, from 1970 until just a couple years ago & it was commonplace for employers to offer insurance-everyone we worked for did, but that started changing around 2008), then he wouldn’t be in the position he’s in and she’d already be getting medical care.

    Are you ok paying for billions upon billions for foreign aid to countries that hate us & foreign wars that not only cost billions of dollars but precious American lives as well (& for what? I just read that Iraq is falling back into the hands of al-Qaeda, & Vietnam fell to the communists, Afghanistan won’t be any different)? As for me, since, as you pointed out, we have to pay taxes anyway, I’d rather my 40 years’ worth of taxes go to helping my fellow American citizens & healthcare seems like a very worthy cause. And NO, I am NOT a democrat nor did I vote for Obama!

    Education is great. My husband has a degree in electrical engineering from a prestigious university. He had GREAT jobs, including 20 years at Boeing, until 2008-2009 when it all came to a screeching halt. He was over 50 & couldnt get hired anywhere, either in or out of his field. He sent out hundreds of resumes, worked with recruiters, went on interviews for jobs that were exactly what he had been doing for 30 years, but it was absolutely age discrimination. So unless you’re self-employed (which was not an option in his case) once you get older, good luck finding a decent job. (He had a massive stroke last year, in case you’re wondering how it all turned out, & now he’s disabled–because he has high blood pressure & we couldn’t afford his medicine because he lost his health insurance coupled with the intense stress of being unemployed–we lost our house–we’ve both worked for almost 40 years, raised a family, paid LOTS of taxes, never needed gov’t assistance & never thought that anything like this could ever happen to us & all because of the lack and availability of healthcare insurance)

    You’re right! Let’s add a few to the list–taxpayer funded foreign aid by the hundreds of millions to countries that hate us, taxpayer funded foreign wars by the billions upon billions, bridges to nowhere, environmental studies on the blue-spotted mud dauber, scientific research grants to prove that girls are different than boys, farm subsidies to multi-millionaires & corporations, the list is endless! I’d much rather they spend my tax money on something that helps my fellow American citizens. The ACA could be so much better if everyone would put aside partisan politics & try to actually figure out how the greatest country in the history of the world could make quality healthcare accessible to all its citizens, not just the rich. Nobody should die from preventable & treatable illnesses, as if this was some 3rd world country. Bring the money home to America, for Americans! (And no, I’m not a democrat & I did NOT vote for Obama)

    He’s a patriot & should be given a hero’s welcome, parade and all!!

  • January 5, 2014 at 12:32pm

    Let her stay as far away from the White House as possible. Wish he’d have stayed too. Permanent vacations for them both, far, far away from the Oval office.

  • January 2, 2014 at 11:35am

    And he should be given a parade!! He’s a hero!

    Unpopular to be sure. I would hope all wars would be unpopular! But I was a teenager during the Vietnam war & boys my age were being drafted against their will & being shipped off to fight for –what, exactly?– people were protesting all over the country, college campuses became war zones of their own–you don’t see that now. Polls or no polls, the big difference is the draft vs. an all-volunteer military.
