    Classic, simply classic.

    For my conservative views, I have been called a right-wing nut job, retarded, redneck, and have certainly been “unfriended” at least once, to just name a few. (Some of those names are by my close relatives!)

    The very first time I ever wrote on a major city newspaper’s site, I was promptly lambasted with vile invectives. I responded back politely on how low-class their response was, only to be told, with more invectives, if I couldn’t take the criticism, to get off the site . Since that time, whenever I have written anything, I most certainly can predict the libs final reaction: relegating me to a racist, saying I am boring or name calling. Once you have discredited their ramblings, they quickly follow this pattern, as it is quite obvious they do not have an answer for their ridiculous points of view.

    Jon Stewart’s biggest flaw in his argument is that he assumes that a black person (during the time of O’Reilly’s father moving to Levittown), did not have the equivalent neighborhood to live in. He is making it seem as if by virtue of living in a black town/neighborhood, it is automatically bad. I do not believe that was the case in the 1950′s…

    People who do not understand the crassness of this move have NO CLUE to what he just did! I actually gasped when I saw this…shameful beyond words. I think it sums up everything we have witnessed about him for the past 8 years.

    Where does one start with this display of immature tactics on the part of the UNITED STATES’ STATE DEPARTMENT??? According to the web, Marie is a 33 year old woman who represents the greatest country in the world. Yet, she acts like she is passing a note to her BFF in JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL! Talk about a total embarrassment, but then again, USING social media to get your snide and snarky message out says it all. What a pathetic joke!

    When SWA was the most economical to fly, it was a different story…their Priority flyers were treated much better. My husband is a Priority flyer and I have to wait to board and he is NOT allowed to save me a seat. Bottom line, they want you to pay the extra fee to board together. Nice way to treat the bread and butter of your clientele! Last laugh; my husband flies American over SWA whenever he can.

    I am actually quite sick of being lectured by our First Lady; it is either race or how to feed my family.
    To clarify, I am a Realtor and have had my share of discrimination against me. Once when a relocation referral came to me, we communicated first via email. He was an asst. basketball coach at a prominent college. Once I talked to them on the phone and they were able to “hear” my ethnicity, I never heard from them. I tried following up, but to no avail. I never gave it another thought, but it dawned on me that was probably the reason.
    Once a man decided to give a listing to a male realtor because he was the “head of the household”. Yes, I am a white woman.
    Then many, many years ago, working in an office, our little white group of twenty-somethings invited the new black twenty-something to sit with us during breaks/lunch. After a few weeks, she dumped us and sat with the fifty-somethings who were black. Later on, she became the buyer for the company and salesmen that I knew said she wouldn’t let them see her, only the black salespeople.
    Lastly, I have a close black friend, who won’t date black women because they question why does he live in a white neighborhood and hang out with those people.
    So why doesn’t the FL lecture the other side too???? I raised my kids to respect anyone who will respect you back…color never enters into it.

    I will admit I didn’t read the whole article; so, not sure they mentioned the WEATHER in Chicago during that timeframe! It was FREEZING cold, and SNOWY beyond belief, which I am sure contributed to lowlifes staying indoors…just a thought.

    As someone who is affiliated with service dogs in a training capacity…the ADA protects the disabled person, NOT THE ANIMAL. So, in essence you are discriminating against the person. They have EVERY right to enter any public facility with their service dog. You also do not have the right to inquire as to their disability or what their dog is used for. Service dogs are certainly used for more than blind people…they could be for seizures, PTSD, anxiety etc. It is none of your business what or why. And until you walk in anyone’s shoes who needs a service dog, please rethink your nasty and negative comments.
    Unfortunately, there are people out there who are abusing this system. They illegally pass off their dogs as service dogs. Legitimate service dogs go through almost 2 years of training before they are assigned to a disabled person. Their training starts as early as 6 weeks old and continues daily until they graduate and get assigned. A lot of dedication occurs from the breeders, puppy raisers and technical trainers. Most of the time, this is a volunteer service and charitable foundation.

    I will take a guess and say that the “Assistant Manager” was a very young person, who does not have the gumption to have handled this in a better way. And shame on the complaining person; they need to get a grip!!
    As for Panera being a “snobby” company as some have said – I am a “puppy raiser” for a service dog organization and Panera was the first place I took my 8 ½ week old puppy for his first socialization outing. The Panera manager was elated to help me out and requested the next time I came in to please say hello to him. He wanted to see what progress we made. Very accommodating!

    While I’m not a body language exert, this should be an interesting take. The little that I found was the head tilted up high (I know he had to look up to see the Dr. but I don’t think that high) indicates a form of power, superiority or arrogance. Excessive blinking happened for a bit after his dead on stare…indicates stress or lying. Rubbing eyes shows disbelief or upset.
    I would have loved to “hear” what he was thinking!!

    I believe this issue is the flag (or anything else) on the railing…the letter states you can put plants on the patio…so, I would put the flag into a pot of flowers/greenery on the PATIO table. If they have a problem with that, then they are jerks. I think you can always find a loophole, such as, hanging the flag in your window! (I am a Realtor® and I once had an issue with no signs in the front yard or on the patio…the condo docs never said I couldn’t put the sign in the window).

    He made a deal with his mother; he reneged in the worst possible way. Deal is over and this mother is correct in what she has done.
    My son bought a used car while a senior in high school…once he was in college, he got caught up in the credit card scheme they entice freshmen with. We warned him, but he didn’t listen. A few thousand dollars later, he was in trouble with it. We said we would bail him out but he had to sell his car. He did and as the new buyer drove away, I held my hand out for the check. I will never forget the look on his face. Lesson learned; he is now a hard working and fine young man.

    I agree that this is NOT news; however, I really think the major point is being missed: Why did the CEO of Costco back President Obama, who is ANTI small business, when Costco promotes businesses, mostly small, shopping there? I am seriously rethinking my long term membership!
