    I have 2 nieces, 18 & 21. The older was able to vote in her 1st election in 2012. Knowing how I was at that age–I didn’t care and I didn’t like being told how to think–I decided all I could do try to encourage her to educate herself & impress upon her the importance of being involved in the process. I made it clear she should not vote anyone’s opinion but her own. I noticed after that, she began listening to family / friends discussions and asking questions now and then. All I can do is tell her what I believe and why. I have hope :)

    As a near life-long resident of SW MO & working in Springfield, this type of crime is very unusual. No doubt in my mind nor most SW MO residents that this absolutely is a response to the Ferguson incident.

    @amtexas. If it’s my door, why can I not answer it with any friggin’ attitude I choose; cops or no? From the video, I don’t see a thing wrong with what the homeowner did. He asks “Who’s there?” but the cops do not identify themselves. The first thing out of the cop’s mouth is “Can you turn that off?” The homeowner is completely within his rights to refuse. His refusal is direct, firm and without hostility. In response he receives first an order and then a threat. All while in his home and with zero indication that he is to be suspected of anything.

    This homeowner did not have any “attitude” other than to protect his interests from a couple of power-hungry, self-important nazis. They escalated the incident simply because the man did not give them what they wanted and they figured they could intimidate him. THEY had every responsibility to have approached him, THE HOMEOWNER, in a polite and reasonable manner. When refused, they should have promptly left.

    It churns my gut when I hear American citizens expressing a desire to be bent over because of the “I’ve got nothing to hide” mentality. These a-holes bully because they are allowed to at every turn. It saves their sorry, fat butts the trouble of doing their job properly while stroking their over-inflated egos. I do not care if one does have something to hide. That does not relieve a cop from doing his job according to the Constitution; quite the contrary.

    LOL LOL ROFLMAO! All those things you mention happen “on demand”? Your face can swell for many reasons, yes. On demand? No.

    @He_Is. Unbelievable what you pick and choose as facts. It was reported that he had no gunshot residue on his BODY. Dr. Baden does not have access to his CLOTHES. Your statements are proof of nothing. The department lies and lies but you provide no basis for that statement. As a rational person I’m supposed to accept what you state and the ever-changing account of his accomplice as proof that the office is guilty? Get a life.

    I do not disagree with your feeling. No, I am not blasting and truly understand your comment. But, I think that for Robin, his act was “freeing” for him. Most people that attempt/commit suicide do not want to die. They want to be freed from pain. In that sense, he succeeded in this world. I whole heartedly agree that suicide is selfish. As an RN in a neurotrauma unit I’ve witnessed the devastation of loved ones left behind. But, I will not find fault with anyone who finds comfort in believing that Mr. Williams is now at peace. I pray for his family and friends as well.

    Methinks you lack reading comprehension. I addressed that the owners/staff might well have not been privy to the act in progress. Customers did address it as evidenced by their complaints to the establishment personnel. I realize you are sarcastic about the signs themselves, but the implication is clear. Dirty employee hands are repugnant. So is wiping a baby’s ass or hoo hoo at a restaurant table. You imply that the existence of the former negates the latter. Ie that if one eats in a restaurant one is already exposed to nastiness and therefore dirty diapers is no worse. Dumb argument. I agree signs won’t stop a filthy person but customer complains might stop another.

    When Mork n Mindy was on I thought it was dumb & didn’t think he was funny then. Then, around ’85, give or take, some friends insisted on watching an HBO stand-up show he was doing. He won me over with Hefty Bags & One Eyed Wonder Lizards. Been laughing with him ever since. A comedic genius. Is it me or does it seem common that the truly great comedians seem to commonly end tragically?

  • [4] August 11, 2014 at 7:52pm

    One too my idiotic posts for me to remain silent. There’s no reason to believe restaurant personnel were aware while the diaper change was in progress. The article reads that customers complained. That’s enough for the owner to ask her to leave. Poopy or wet, customers complained. Would it have been any less vindictive for the owners to refuse service altogether? I don’t see it. Quite the opposite to me. My concern in that situation would be preventing a repeat performance in the dining room if she remained vs. “punishment”. Signs in the BR? OSHA requirement rather than a demonstration of what owners think of employee hygiene. And, for clarification, those signs mean wash after peeing as well as pooping or even entering the BR to comb one’s hair. Concerns me you would focus on poop only. It’s laughable that you would use signs in a BR to justify pee or poop on a table is ok. You set your dinner on a toilet if it doesn’t bother you. Me? I’ll eat in restaurants that eject people like this woman, who probably didn’t wash her own hands after changing a pee and/or poop filled diaper while I’m eating.

    @Very:
    Yes. “Thug” was supposed to mean something. It means that with nothing other than the usual racist sensationalism that happens in these situations, I choose to believe a 6-year veteran officer had zero reason to cold-bloodedly murder an ”innocent” for no reason save for his being black. The officer describes the young man and another forcing him into a physical altercation. That = thuggery. If you are implying that I was equating thug to black, familiarize yourself with the 3 that killed officer Lunsford. I also called them thugs and they are not black.

    While I think there are far too many examples of police brutality and misconduct going on, I am completely unwilling to accuse an officer of murder for no reason than the one killed has only color and finishing high school in his defense.

  • [15] August 11, 2014 at 12:28pm

    Uh oh. This doesn’t bode well for the officer. I hope he’s black. Things will go better for a black cop than a white or white Hispanic (sarc). Sacrificial lamb to the slaughter needed to appease the masses.
    So, unarmed means two thugs together were not dangerous to the officer? Why don’t these people ask the family of Constable Darrell Lunsford how dangerous unarmed thugs can be? He was overpowered and murdered with his own gun by “unarmed” thugs (caught on his dashcam). That’s just one such example.

    I don’t think the hide Mr. Hide-y found in the Pepsi can is half as gross as seein the hide around the crack in his can! Yuk, pull up the pants dude!

    Culture. These kids are a product of culture. “Gangsta” culture. I really wanna believe they would have targeted the 1st unfortunate soul to cross their path but I do believe they wanted to target a white person. “bitches I’m up dem poles”? I tried to learn the origin or meaning of that and could not other than it’s a gangsta rap song tittle. Didn’t understand the lyrics at all. Might as well have been Greek.

    I am so angry that we daily see this 5h1t. I have tried all my 50 years to overcome the prejudices I’ve grown up with in a mostly white, rural southern MO area. But I see this stuff and see our illustrious leader commenting on issues he has no business commenting on and realize race relations are down the 5h1tter in a way I’ve not seen since I was a child.

    I hoped all my life I was not “racist”. But, I now realize by MSM standards I am and apparently becoming more so.

    ELLJAY: I had NO idea someone else had such a similar screen name as the one I chose. I hope I haven’t posted anything that got you in trouble! LOL I just signed up at the end of March so I’ll re-register as something else. Maybe great minds think alike; I was “spelling” my initials.

    I think the video is great and this dancercising granny will probably be shakin her stuff when the rest of us are toast. Keep it up ma’am!

  • August 21, 2013 at 2:11pm

    @JASE: I couldn’t figure out that “up dem poles” garbage either so I Googled the phrase. Apparently there is a gansta rap song titled “Up Them Poles”. I watched about 4 seconds of the video and then read the lyrics. Didn’t help. Shakespeare or James Joyce would make more sense to a 5-year-old than that 5h1t made to me.

    @groundzero: A few words for ya…Thorazine, Clozaril, Risperdal, Haldol; whichever works.

    @drgloom: LOL that was funny. White trash at it’s finest. But, on a serious note–I hope for that little man’s sake what he tells the dad is false, ie he isn’t his dad. That young man trying to take custody seems to be this little guy’s only hope. As for a lot of the comments–let’s not visit the sins of the father…(in this case mother)…on the child. As for the bite & subsequent smack–totally justified and understandable. This time some cops showed some incredible restraint and professionalism.

    @Steve: Forgot with last post, no I don’t have all the answers but by golly i have some serious suggestions! Egomaniac enough to think they are spot on too. LOL! TY for the discussion.

    @steve: providers don’t and shouldn’t have info regarding guns. Healthcare providers should have, and do have (if they do their job) information about the mental health status of an individual. Health care providers do not need to and should not have to consider gun law when assessing the stability of a patient be it suicidal or homicidal. Health care providers should consider only the health of the individual and danger to society at large. This is such a farce placing gun ownership into the healthcare arena. A suicidal person will succeed with or without a gun. So will a homicidal person. I simply think that the thought processes that lead folks to conclude that removing one tool will fix the mental health problem IF and when it is a problem. The gun isn’t the problem. The mental state is the problem.

  • August 6, 2013 at 5:26pm

    @Stevetherealist: I’m sorry, but I have to respectfully disagree. This woman was reported as being a suicide risk because the healthcare providers are practicing CYA from getting at cross purposes of a ridiculous gun law versus practicing sound mental health care. As a registered nurse I become really concerned when healthcare practitioners violate confidentiality unnecessarily in order to negate virtually nil risk to them personally IF a patient such as this did commit suicide by firearm. All the while seriously dangerous mental patients and convicts are released by revolving door daily into society. But once again, the hysterical, uneducated anti-gunners will target those who pose little or no danger to themselves or society. All this will lead to is people who love the 2nd Amendment will forgo any form of mental health care simply because it makes them a target of the government. Not productive in my opinion.
