    Isn’t it funny that when budgets get tight more cameras go up?

    Grover that is not entirely true. Wealth is not as much of a factor in family size as you make it out to be. In fact I would be willing to bet good money that the proportion of those who are well off financially versus those who are not isn’t that different. If anything I would wager that the scale is tipped in favor of those less wealthy versus those who have more monetary resources when it comes to family sizes. Part of that can be laid at the feet of the welfare state, which has been largely brought on by progressive policies, over the last half century or so. So, yes, Radical’s statement above that progressivism has more to do with the decline of the American family than laissez-faire capitalists. Actually, to be honest, I don’t see how you can even blame lassez-faire capitalists at all in today’s age considering that we haven’t see that in this country since the early part of the 20th century when John Maynard Keynes reared his ugly head with his economic theory. It was the progressives that pushed Keynesian economics that led to abandoning the gold standard and destroying the wealth of the US dollar. It was progressives that regulate businesses out of business or drive them overseas to escape progressive policies here. You are flat wrong to blame laissez-faire capitalists friend. The decline of the family can be totally laid at the feet of progressives.

    So basically it’s just that much more attractive to get a government job and suckle from the taxpayers teat. Got it.

    How about a bit of optimism; let’s hope this sobers the mother up and makes her realize the error of her ways. Let’s hope this is the turning point that makes her turn her life around. I guess one can always hope.

    “He added that the neighbors they’ve met in the year since a plot was selected have been very welcoming and supportive.”
    Of course they are sweet as honey to their faces. Once members of the neighborhood were shown to be materialistic jackasses to the whole world they changed their tunes. People like that make me sick.

    I’m 100%, and then some, pro-2nd. I think every child should learn to shoot. But seriously, what the heck was a 9 year old doing learning to shoot a fully automatic weapon? At that age, if their parents choose to allow and teach them firearms, a child should still be shooting small caliber single shot rifles.

    Regardless of political affiliation or beliefs I think professors who push their personal agenda do a huge disservice to their students. (that goes both ways) Many students forget that they are paying those professors for an education. They should expect better customer service than that because that is exactly what the nature of their relationship is and should be. Until the country decides to push that thought nothing will change.

    Sometimes it’s hard for folks to see sarcasm when we have a few resident trolls about in most articles. ;)

    They both should have gotten a ticket. The truck for not properly securing his load and the car for not keeping a safe distance. No one can honestly tell me that this car was keeping a safe distance with a hatchet (not an axe by the way) protruding from their windshield. Maybe this person in the car learned a valuable lesson in tailgating.

    I think some of you need to take a step back, and take a series of deep breaths over this news. I am no fan of President Obama and, quite honestly, I’m not a fan of Speaker Boehner either. This just proves to me one of two things; either Boehner is still incompetent and needs to be replaced, or he is playing his hand close to his chest while biding his time.

    Folks, listen. At this point, less than 3 months from midterms, it would be political suicide to try to impeach this president. The Democrats are using impeachment as a rallying cry and it’s working. We need to counter that by saying exactly what Boehner just did, that impeachment is off the table. Let’s not forget that to attempt impeachment at this point would be a Clinton repeat. The House would impeach him but the Senate would let it go and NOTHING would be done. The chance to impeach him would most likely not gain enough support for a second round if Repubs did take the Senate still.

    I don’t like Boehner, but let’s see what happens after the midterms. IF the Repubs can take the Senate and nothing is done after that point… then let’s start getting angry. Just my two cents worth.

    DavidKlimek; do you even know the constitutional definition of treason? I’ll give you a hint here, congress “sitting on their collective asses” is not one of the reasons. (for reference, look up Article 3 Section 3 for the definition)

    I will concede, however, that members of congress from both parties did commit treason when they, along with President Obama, sent aid to Al Qaeda linked rebels in Syria. Al Qaeda has been declared the enemy of the US since as far back as 2001 and no formal cease fire or peace agreement has been brokered. Hence, they are still considered “the enemy”.

    As for impeachment; see Article 2 Section 4 for the grounds of impeachment. The interesting thing about the section is that Congress, specifically the House of Representatives, get’s to decide what constitutes “other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” A refusal to uphold your oath to office, for example, can be considered an “other high crime”.

    So, in short, take your points and stuff them someplace because they are irrelevant to the whole notion of treason or impeachment.

    I imagine I will get some thumbs down for this, but I really don’t care. As I said in the other article about the lady who slammed on her brakes because a little boy pointed a toy gun out the window from a week or two back; this one is the red trucks fault. If you rear end someone, or in this case are forced to evade the person in front of you, I don’t care what the person in front of you did wrong. It’s your fault. It’s your responsibility to maintain a safe stopping distance in front of your vehicle. (yeah, I know, try that in city traffic, but the point still remains) Had the red truck kept that stopping distance in mind there would have been plenty of time for him to stop and he would not have had to evade the SUV in front of him.

    Tragic accident but to solely blame the kid is moronic if you ask me. The woman didn’t need to slam on her brakes and even if she felt she needed to stop suddenly, that didn’t cause the accident. It was the person that was following too closely behind the woman, who rear ended her, that is the primary person to blame in this. Ask any truck driver or person who drives professionally. (I used to) If you rear end someone it is ALWAYS your fault no matter what the person in front of you did. It is your responsibility to leave enough room in front of your vehicle at ALL times to stop safely as needed.

    Actually it’s not the idiot woman, who slammed on her brakes, fault. It’s the moron who was following too closely behind her that rear ended her and caused the accident. Ask any professional driver; if you rear end someone, it’s always your fault no matter what the person in front of you did.

    While I do think these are neat pictures a funny little saying comes to mind over this. “I’m not saying let’s go kill all the stupid people… I’m just saying let’s remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.” You’ve got to be pretty dense, in my opinion, to take part in these photos this close to a tornado. Doesn’t matter if it was a good clip away, they can make course corrections pretty fast and you can find yourself in a bad situation really quickly.

    It is NEVER an accident to forget that your child is in the back seat. Period. Stop being selfish and know where your kids are at all times. Your child(ren) are your sole responsibility.
