Reader’s Digest ran an article on this fiasco not that long after the deal fell through. At the time the City of New London was close to becoming what Detroit did become, a poverty stricken welfare waste land. Furthermore there was not good infrastructure for transportation in and out for commerce at that time. Another fine example of progressive liberal good intentions raking community taxpayers over the glowing coals of their incompetence rising from irrational “thinking?” far and away from the reality of life in the real world.

Teenagers are minors for a reason. Their minds have not sufficiently developed for them to have sound judgement, and they have insufficient life experience to have leaned to apply proper judgement. It is fully the responsibility of every parent To thoroughly civilize, socialize, and educate their children. Turning children over to the government is to that is to abdicate that responsibility. There is an old Arab proverb: To raise a child without a trade is to raise a thief. Governance is incompetent and it is best to limit the influence of incompetence. The age of majority is now 18, but the human brain does not mature until about age 26.

This separation of church and state lie has to end. As I recall it all came from a decision by Hugo Black when he was siting on the Supreme Court just post WWII. He misquoted Thomas Jefferson in his letter to a clergyman discussing the roles of the church and the state in public affairs reaffirming his belief the church should not not be wholly supported by the state thus giving the state say in the affairs of the church. The church is a very necessary element in the public affairs of the country. It is the source and basis of civility and morality, especially Christianity. The church is the legitimate source of the teachings of natural law, the law that is the statement of the unalienable rights mentioned in the Constitution. Remove the church from public discourse and you get the irascible, insulting, disrespect, and violent conduct that fills the headlines of today. The root of this conflict is between the “sexual revolution” and Christianity. And at the moment the sexual reveloution has the floor in public discourse.

Unfortunately this is probably the only place in the entire media environment where these bits of information will ever be published.
O'reilly had a story recently about this teacher that was punched in the face by a student. 10 minutes later that student was back in his class with no consequences. This teacher who was black, was reporting a widespread policy that now exists that because of "white supremacy" black children were no longer being made to face any kind of consequences for bad behavior in school. Look it up for yourself. If this is true, what is going to happen when they run wild and amok in front of Police where they are "required" to stop and listen and obey. I suspect it will be more and greater and escalating chaos. WE HAVE EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW IN THIS COUNTRY WHICH IS GOING BY THE WAYSIDE BECAUSE OF LOUD VOICES SCREAMING RACISM AT EVERY TURN. Pretty soon it will be chaos because you can't police at all If you do, you are the criminal. Well, the consequences will be chaos, first in communities where people are most likely to attack and disregard the police. OK. Follow the idiots off the cliff. This has already happened in NY and Baltimore. WHO AND HOW MANY HAVE DIED? WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE NUMBERS?
THEY ARE THROUGH THE ROOF!! IS THIS POLICY IN THE SCHOOLS WHICH WILL LEAD TO MORE CHAOS INTENTIONAL?????????????????????

I’m sure the immediate officers of the court stand an excellent chance of losing their law licenses, and in addition perjury convictions seem also certain. The civil rights law suit looks like a lead pipe cinch winner, and the accused better start doing everything they can to settle out of court on the civil law suit.

This comes across as a major waste of tuition monies on another worthless degree.

Fortunately, on this side of the lake a repeat sex offender goes back to jail unless they have a really slick lawyer. The very lefty progressive liberal feel good UK tends to turn too many evil beings lose. Too bad the lady kick boxer did not end it permanently when she could.

And just why was this woman not driven to a remote part of an absolutely huge parking lot before being allowed behind the wheel? Not a good decision to have a novice near anything that can be damaged the first several times out.
OVER 21--AGE-OF-REASON.... not anyone-elses' fault BUT hers.... accept your-own responcibility... UNLESS you're all partof the [d]PROG-NEW-WORLDORDER!!

The title “Professor” says academia, and fully imbued progressive liberal. Progressive liberal says emotional over and above all reason, that is irrational. Religious Studies says lost by way of complete compromise of all principles for living a useful life. There is no possible rational use to publicizing the random thought of an ignorant person.

Until I read the article I was sure it was going to be a big old feral hog. I have relatives in Florida and Alabama that make a living taking out the feral hogs that root up yards and terrorize neighborhoods. They also defecate everywhere leaving a serious sanitation problem. A bear is real serious trouble for a 7 year old, as are the hogs. The bear is probably protected too. Both kill people. Hogs though will hunt people.

I quit going to Hardees when their burgers prices went up $1. And now every fast food joint has prices too high for the product served, because food prices have skyrocketed. Now I cook on the weekend for the whole week, and no more fast food. For fast food prices I can go to a sit down restaurant, but that is reserved for Sunday after church.
$15/hour for an entry level job is a joke. Fast food is an entry level job! It’s there to teach you what you did not learn in school about holding down a job. It is not for raising a family or even living on your own. It is about learning about having a job, period.
Single cheeseburger at Wendy’s now $4.19. And no fries or drink. Your're lucky to get a recycled napkin. I can only afford to eat there once a week. And the worn out Holstein that they use is not that great.

This kind of crap is why there are state Religious Freedom Restoration Acts. The federal law protects in federal cases but not in state cases. So if your state does not have a RFRA, like Indiana did not, you have your right of conscience protected. There is an option of making a federal case out of it by suing for denial of constitutional rights or civil rights.

This is exactly what needs to be done to any media outlet that publishes or plays lies without saying it is fiction.

Matt has it right. If both of you are not doing 70% of the work on the marriage you may be in trouble. That’s why police officers, soldiers, and any other 24/7-your-time-on-demand profession can kill a marriage. I have been married 48 years to the same lovely and charming wife. We did get married a second time in the wedding church in Bethlehem after 45 years.

The media is looking for hype, and uses lies as the basis for the questions. Rand Paul is treating them for what they are, rude, disingenuous, and dishonest.
 April 10, 2015 at 8:06pm
Paul is treating the media in a very appropriate manner. They should all treat the media the very same way, cut them off.

I worked for the Navy for 30 years. I got 15 patents in electronics and controls in invented for weapons systems. I did computer modeling of weapon systems performance studies. My job was eliminated in the 1996 BRAC. I went to private industry at double my government salary. I work in private industry as a consultant for another 15 years. I earned that damned pension and it is not that much. I make more than the pension pays from my investments in spite of the FED and Obama have done to kill investment income. That comes from more education, strict personal discipline, and time served. Now I work in my shop making custom firearms and I’m having a ball.
I used to make suppressors in my shop. I used a stack of washers with different IDs in a stainless pipe. They worked really well as far as I was concerned. The 45 cal pistol device sounded like an escape valve shutoff on a 250psi line, and not like a gun shot. The 30cal rifle device was longer and heavier, and quieter. I decided they were much too cumbersome to shoot with, and scrapped them. I got into that project making suppressors for air compressors. I sold that design and all rights.

Key fobs not working in the street and cell phones not working inside a theater are not new. Devices that transmit RF can be jammed by another transmitter. Then there is the handy EMP gun that can take out the bass in those cars you can hear a mile away, but have to be within 3 meters of to kill the noise. A spectrum analyzer and a directional antenna used to take two bearings and you can draw an X on the transmitter. Oh, and another thing, key fobs can be duplicated and used to get right into your car, or through your garage door, or any other remote control device. Any tech school electronics grad can build this stuff on the kitchen table.
