    You and me both. I have participated in this drive several times, this really touches my heart that it had made such a profound difference in both of their lives. I have always loved the concept behind the shoeboxes and how much it might mean to a poor child in some other nation. Now means even more to me.

    I never thought too much for his man before, admire how he can laugh at himself. We should all be able to do the same. Way too many who take themselves too seriously. Got a laugh out of the prank and how he dealt with it. As a result think more of him than previously.

    Hearing this kid talk, it is hard to believe he is only 18 years old. Very mature and solid. Looks like he was brought up believing he could be a winner, and he has become one. Parents should be very proud of this kid.

    Loved the way my fellow Texans took that jerk down REALLY quick, and that even the one older fellow, who was shown later in a wheelchair, did not just stand by and allow the jerk to attack the older man like he did. Like the one man yelled, We don’t take that sort of **** in Texas, even if the person attacked was gay or whatever, we just do not sit by and allow that sort of one-sided attack
    Pretty much the same as the soldier at the Walmart, I believe in the Houston area, who stopped a man from beating a woman to death the other day. We don’t just walk by and turn our heads and want to not get involved. We take action. Good going, folks, the attacker is a blight on Texas, those who jumped him showed our true colors.

    It is completely curable with antibiotics within a few days. The last leper colony in the US closed a few years back, and the only people who still lived there when it closed, no longer had leprosy but had lived there so long they were allowed to live out the remainder of their lives there. I think one or two were still alive and were moved to nursing homes. I believe it had been in Hawaii (figures doesn’t it?).

    Several cases of the more severe plague have been reported this year in the State of Colorado, which have resulted in at least one death. There is a more minor form of plague which is routinely found in Colorado but this year there have been several of the really serious, much more lethal forms of plague. So you are not far off.

    I saw a couple of days ago in the RSOE alerts that they have found the mosquitoes that cause yellow fever and a few other third world diseases recently in California. If those mosquitoes bite an infected person, aka someone who has recently wandered over the border, everyone it bites after that can be infected. They are also finding the mosquitoes that cause malaria in the US for the first time in decades. Allowing an open border with absolutely no health screenings for those coming in is what is causing this to come into our country, which had thought to have eradicated most of those diseases decades ago.

    This is one of those diseases that was considered worse than death prior to the introduction of antibiotics, largely after WWII. That is why there are no leper colonies left in the world, it is no longer considered a serious illness. Like the doctor had said, a few days of antibiotics and it is on its way to being cured, and the individual is no longer contagious. Pretty much like scarlet fever used to be, once feared by all, now known to be an untreated strep throat, couple days on antibiotics, and it is gone.

    this is creepier than Ebola or ISIS. Wish I had not read this story.

    Because it is news regardless of who put it out. It could very well have been put out by Ukrainian forces loyal to Kiev, who wish to make the pro-Russian side look bad, and by association, Putin.
    I was talking to a learned friend who said it seems far more likely to have come from Kiev, which has amongst those who overthrew their elected government many who are neoNazis, and honor those who fought with the Nazis against Russia and the Jews during WWII. Putin might be evil but he is no fool, and it would take a fool to throw in a provocation like that at this time, does not make sense for it to originate from that side of the dispute.
    I had somewhat jokingly suggested the CIA might have come up with the idea to demonize the proRussian side, and then had read an article shortly thereafter stating that Brennan and other CIA officials had recently been in Kiev coordinating activities with the temporary govt in Kiev. Coincidence, maybe, but rings of other things the CIA has tried to pull off in the past.
    I hope the Jewish people stay very alert, if they can get to Israel, they are needed there and probably better off. Possessions things, people cannot be replaced.

    I agree and am very sorry to see this. I admired Mr. Beck for a long time. He has a lot of his facts way off. And the feds will be back in force to take Bundy’s land and maybe his life, just really sorry to see Beck turn on the people. Did not expect this from him. He might start checking out the mines run in the area by BLM, and all the minerals being mined as well, over 100 mines being run in that area by BLM.

    It is called humor, for those who have any.

    How about someone mentioning that black lady who stopped them and then rendered aid to the man. Gosh you just can’t paint all black people the same because some act like thugs and/or animals. There are people in the black community willing to stand up and do what is right. And like she said, she had a gun on her and she was willing to use it if necessary. She made a very brave stand against evil, and no doubt kept the man from being killed on the spot.
    And you are asking if any black leaders are decrying that attack? I read that several black ministers in Detroit preached against the anger and violence in their community this last Sunday. Yes, decent black people are as appalled as are decent white people. There are decent folks in all races just as there are jerks and thugs in all races.

    I agree with you 100%.

    This reminded me of a fight that broke out in a class I was taking in high school, during the Cuban missile crisis. The teacher was giving us some BS as to what we were to do if we saw a missile headed for the classroom (and it wasn’t kiss your ass goodbye). One of the boys had said if he saw a missile coming he would run, and the teacher got so incensed he and the boy got into a fist fight. A couple of other teachers came in and broke it up, and I remember saying, this is the sorriest reason to be fighting. If you see a missile headed to the class it won’t make any difference what you do, you and all of us are dead.
    Everyone’s nerves were on edge I guess. It was the craziest thing I ever saw in a classroom. Nothing was done to the boy or the teacher for the crazy fist fight.

    I agree, the young cop was himself so traumatized he would hesitate to use his gun again and end up being killed. Most cops hope and pray they never have to shoot anyone, and especially that they never accidentally shoot or kill an innocent person by mistake. He needs to find another line of work because his guilt will likely lead to him being killed. For anyone who has ever had a family member in law enforcement, you worry every time your loved one, whether brother, husband, son, daughter or wife, or parent goes to work, if they will come home alive. My youngest brother was in law enforcement over 20 years, praise God never involved in a shooting, quit law enforcement, is now a JP and a Southern Baptist minister. But we worried when he was out on patrol, because you never know when a “simple” traffic stop is not that “simple,” or a simple domestic disturbance will turn violent. I really feel for the young officer and sincerely advise him to look for a new job, he has too much feelings and conscience and this mistake will endanger him for future work. Most cops are really decent, God-fearing men and women and do not deserve the vile remarks being directed toward the entire profession from most on here.

    When I was in the Army in the late 1960s, I had friends who used to smoke pot and blow it in their baby’s face before they would take him in to the well-baby clinic for check ups. According to them he would be the only baby not crying at the clinic and everyone would talk about how “happy” he was. I have had no contact with the family since at least 1970, so don’t know what became of the boy or his parents. If alive, he would be in his mid-40s by now. Both parents were very heavily into drugs, so don’t know really how any of them did or if even still alive. Drug use in the military was very, very common during Vietnam, especially prior to the tests to determine drug use. I was always kinda in shock that they got the baby stoned, and have often wondered over the years if it had any effect on him as he got older. The father had been a draftee, did his two years and got out.

    She might actually live longer if she would go on and testify, without warning, because then once she has testified she shouldn’t need to worry about them killing her to keep her from testifying. Of course, they might then kill her for testifying. Its a no win situation she has gotten herself into, they might kill her to shut her up or they might kill her if she testifies to scare others into not testifying. Nasty group of friends she has but she has made her bed of her choice.

    Apparently I’m the only one who has no idea what a “freeholder” is. Can someone fill me in, please? I do not recall ever seeing that title or expression or whatever it is. Not too proud to admit my stupidity and/or ignorance.

    I guess I’m the village idiot, but I had to read the article to figure out what it was? I’m not anti-gun or anything, don’t have any problem with him wearing it, seems to fit in with the music they were skating to, but I honestly had never seen one before, and when I saw the photo, I was: Duh. Until I read the article. I find it very amusing that folks are coming unglued about it. No gun in the holster, right? And he didn’t pull a gun, right? Just wore a holster as a prop for an ice skating competition? Good Lord, surely people can find something better to whine about. I wonder how many other people didn’t know what it was and had to be told before they could get offended and complain?
