Speaking as a retired Fire Lt. (City of Miami, FL), I’d like to say that the man ranting against the firefighters is totally off base. As one of the other comments said, these guys were in their truck. If a call came in, they would’ve asked the store manager to store their purchases and they would’ve taken off to answer the call. I’ve been on calls where this happened. I wonder how many meals the man berating the firefighters had to put his utensils down mid-meal. I’ve had many meals where this happened. After the fourth time you “nuke” your meal, you dump it in the trash and hope that their is some ice cream in the freezer. Cops and firefighters get dumped on by people who have no clue as to what we do. Work a shift in our shoes and see what really goes on.

No matter what Obama does, he will always have his defenders who say he’s the greatest president in this country’s history. Nothing he does is wrong. Sorry. Electing this man TWICE, without ever vetting him (like other candidates) is a disgrace. Hope all of you “Obamaniacs” enjoy his “Hope & Change.”

This is so sad.

How can people like Rangel, Sharpton and others who share their beliefs look at themselves in the mirror and actually be happy with what they see. What fantasy world are these people living in? Washington, D.C., that’s where! Get rid of Rangel, Feinstein, Franken, Harry Reed and all the rest of them.
I have to agree, it probably good that the Chevrolet Chevette isn't out yet..they might have represented GM with that...oh wait....they have the Spark.
I have to admit though, I have one mostly for going to work and commuting around town and it's a good little truck. However, I do agree that GM should have given him something a little higher up the line.

One more reason why the United States needs to get its own oil by any means necessary, fraking, finishing the pipeline, etc. Then we can tell OPEC to pound sand while we use our own resources.

A simple solution is to retrofit all airline seats so that they don’t recline at all. Uncomfortable? Maybe. But I’m sure I’m not the only person who sat behind someone on a plane who cranked his seat back to “full-recline” the second he had the opportunity. Make the seats recline only half of the distance that they do now or just keep them upright. Flying is such a pain that I’d actually rather drive somewhere then put up with being on a plane.

Has everyone lost their minds? What happened to “Common Sense”? The child was supporting her friend, not being disruptive. I’m so glad my kids are out of school and not subject to this insanity!

Unbelievable! This image has been on the fire truck for 17 YEARS! Now because ONE person complains, the image has to be “amended.” When will someone stand up and say “No. The image stays as is.”

I like it! But Oreo’s don’t last long enough in my home to warrant the investment in the robot.

Good for the cadets! About time people start pushing back against groups like Mikey Weinstein’s. This kind of stuff has gone too far. (What grown man goes by the name of “Mikey” anyway?)

So your goal in life is to become a disrespectful loser.

I’m glad my kids are DONE with school. Stuff like this would drive me up a wall. Common sense has disappeared.

Peteyc……great comment. The USA has turned into a land of “takers” and wimps. If I was on that jury I would have been the lone voice saying that this guy should not get a DIME! Take some responsibility for yourself.

Gary, I agree with you 100%.

I have NO sympathy for this man at all. I’ve been stuck on the “Small World” ride at Disney World and although the song is annoying, suing was the last thing I had on my mind. What nimrod judge allowed this case to be heard? I’m sure it wasn’t hard to find 12 saps on the jury who wanted to “hit” Disney and squeeze some money out of them. Stupid things happen but they don’t need to be taken to court. The lawyers and idiot judges are flushing this country down the drain.

Watching Glenn talk about Victor was something that any pet owner knows of. I’ve had owned many dogs in my life and it is never easy to say goodbye to them. One of the first dogs I owned just walked away from the house when it was her time to go. We never found her. Other dogs had to be put down due to illness. Others died in their sleep. It was never easy. You look in the dogs eyes and you can tell that they know it is time to go, but you want to hold on and keep them with just a little bit longer. If anyone has ever read the poem “Rainbow Bridge” they know what I’m talking about. I know now that all my “dogs in heaven” are healthy and happy, running and playing together, just waiting for the day we’ll all be together again. I miss each and every one of them.

Has anyone noticed that all of these people who say they “don’t mind paying more” have yet to write out a check to the IRS? How about putting your money where your mouth is? I DO MIND paying more.

Let’s see….Mayor appoints all the health board members. All of them (except the one who knew how stupid this is) vote for the Mayor’s proposal. Cab fares have gone up. Metrocard costs are going to go up. Let’s find some other way to make life in NYC more aggravating than it has to be.
