    Thank you. My sentiments exactly. As someone who lives in the Northern Tip of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, it ticks me off every year to hear the overblown stories of winter. If this had happened in, say, New Mexico, yeah, it would be news worthy. It doesn’t snow there. They’ve gotten snow in New York and Boston before. I bet they even get a snow storm and cold temps there every year. Big deal. We’ve gotten more snow this last December than we have in years. Last night it was a record low temp.of -16 degrees. That’s not normal for us either, but we don’t make the National News for it. Give me a break.

    I caught that too. No one in there right mind would do a major system upgrade, especially to program that controls the buying of food, in the middle of the day on the day of the week that most people are grocery shopping. Makes no sense at all.

    Thank you. I love how you have changed this from an opportunity to complain to an opportunity to serve.

    Thank you. We appreciate your prayers. And the Lord has been providing in so many ways. (I have to admit though, my faith slips a notch the longer the struggle drags on. However, I have to look for the blessings too. By not having tv, my kids have great imaginations and read a lot. They play outside a lot because they don’t have electronic games. So there are some great blessing that come with the struggles of having no money.)

    Just reading one bash after another about all the “lazy” people are on EBT. And how everyone on EBT has flat screen tv’s and all when we have nothing of the sort just got under my skin. I agree that many people abuse it and so many other government programs. I just want people to remember that even though there are a lot of people that abuse it, there are just as many that wish they didn’t need it but do because of so many lost jobs and job cut backs, particularly now that Obamacare looms.

    I’m saddened by the number of people here that think this only hurts those too lazy to work. It hurts the disabled and the working poor also. My hubby and I work as hard as we can, and still just can’t make ends meet. We’re were already struggling over what to do thanks to Obamacare. We make too much according to the State to receive Medicaid, which was always fine with us. We didn’t mind not being insured. But since the Feds want everyone on Medicaid to push for single payer, they say we make to little to qualify for subsidies. Now we have to come up with over $600 a month for insurance. We don’t have cable/dish, we only have basic cell phones no texting (that we pay for ourselves), our kids don’t have all the electronic gadgets. We pay for internet so I can pick up sub jobs. We’ve cut out all we can and still can’t make ends meet. We are in an area where there aren’t many jobs and even working hard we can’t come up with enough to cover all the food we need to feed our family. We garden to cover some, but sadly we still have to rely on EBT. I had my weeks worth of groceries all wrung up before we found out that EBT was shutdown. I had already used all the money from the paychecks to pay bills. I have no cash left and no food for the week. Thank God for food pantries. However, I beg of all you who are slamming people who use EBT. Walk in our shoes first. Not all of us abuse it. We wish we didn’t need it, but for a short time we do and this hurts our kids.

    Oh my word, how controversial! Allowing them to hear different view points and make a decision for themselves.

    Thank you. That’s exactly what I was going to say. Why do people always go right to the “offended” stage? I’m offended because I didn’t completely think it through, so it’s bad. However, if I had thought a minute I would have realized they are pointing out the atrocities the federal government committed against the Native Americans including taking away their guns.

    Thank you. I was getting a bit irritated at the comments about the parents over reacting. (That goes for the Blaze News too when they did this story for misfit stories and everyone blamed the parents for overreacting.) Sorry folks, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t blame parents for not being involved when kids bully other kids, fight, shoot someone, or do other stupid things and then blame the parents for the pilots foolishness when parents were clearly in the right to not want their kids to have to watch such an inappropriate movie. You cannot simply block out the movie that is being played and you can’t get up and leave when it’s on a plane. The airlines never should have had this movie on when there were minors on the plane. I’m proud of the parents for doing what was right for their kids. It teaches the kids to stand up for what is right also. My kids had an experience with an aunt that put in a movie they knew they weren’t suppose to watch. The aunt said “what your parents don’t know won’t hurt you.” They stood up and said, “No, we aren’t going against our parents rules.” Go along, to get along is what has brought the morality of our country so low.

    Calm down folks. They aren’t stopping production of the toy until 2014. It’s been out since 2012. It’s probably the normal end of the production cycle. They are just letting it look like they are caving in to get them off their backs. Most of these toys only have a short production run. Then they move on to a different toy under the “Star Wars” theme. This way it’s a win, win situation. Lego gets to keep making money off the toy and end it at it’s normal end cycle, (maybe even make a bit more money off the free publicity), and the people who are complaining get to claim they got them to stop making the “offensive” toy.

    And all the people in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, particularly in the Keweenaw area, are yawning and asking how in the world this is even a story.

  • September 17, 2012 at 11:24am

    De’j`a vu . . . This sounds just like what they were saying 4 years ago just insert different names.

    Someone should have told them that the yard sale season is usually Memorial Day to Labor Day. (At least for those in Northern States.) Leading from behind again?

    See good things do come out of Michigan. Of course, Otsego is on the West side of the State . . . . .

    Can’t stop laughing. Thanks, Gonzo.

    Thank you Silvertruth. I was beginning to think that there wasn’t a single person on here that understood what the article was really about. That regardless of your race, religion, etc. that you can be seen by the content of you character and be successful in what you do. It’s sad the amount of hate that is being shown now, instead. Why is it the others can’t simply be happy that the USA is showing signs of overcoming it’s past and moving forward into new light? We have the first black president. We have a ticket that contains a Mormon and a Catholic. It proves that we are now looking at the person and not their background. That is something to be excited about. And if you have had to endure some of the smears and the lies that others make about your life, you too would get emotional to know that someone else who has endured them is making a difference in the world. How many people cried happy tears when President Obama won the nomination and then the Presidency? They weren’t mocked because of their joy. Why shouldn’t others, who do still face name calling, etc. from those that believe the lies on the web, etc. be allowed feel joy over Romney’s nomination without enduring hateful comments? Instead they continue to spew forth the hatred and only make themselves look bad in the process.

    No offense, but I think you missed the point. He’s not saying that you should be voting for Romney because of his faith. I think he’s saying that it’s more proof that our country, that Obama and the Democrats are continually touting as being racist, is showing once again that we are not. That they are more and more open to different people with different backgrounds.

    And I’m sorry to say the persecution wasn’t just in the early years of the church. It’s not as blatant but it’s still out there. I’m a member of the Community of Christ. (Formerly RLDS) We have a similar story as we were both founded by Joseph Smith Jr. My older brother and his wife were trying to pull their son out of the public school and enroll him in a private Christian school. They were told the couldn’t enroll their son because they were Mormons and therefore not really Christians. Now, my brother could have gone through all the explanations of how the churches were different, etc. but decided it wasn’t worth it as their attitude proved they weren’t the school they wanted their son at anyway. My point. It’s still out there. I’ve lived through some painful experiences because people thought I was a Mormon. I finally got to a point of not telling people what church I belonged to and just saying I am a Christian. It’s a major positive that we are looking at the person and we can say “even a Mormon” can make it, because we see the person not the religion.

    My confusion is coming with the waste. The desks looked to be in perfectly good shape. Why aren’t they being used some place? The basketball hoop looked to be in fine condition. Why isn’t it being used someplace? Couldn’t the salvagable items be sold to raise revenue? Or used in the rebuild? Why are perfectly good items being allowed to sit and let nature (or vandals) destroy them? Why not sell the items for revenue to help rebuild?

    Funny. I love it. It’s so nice to be able to really laugh at something meant to be funny instead of hearing snide comments that later someone claims was just meant to be a joke.

    So let me see if I have this straight: Six months ago, Rep. West had a premonition, a dream, something that let him know that in six months the Left would be up in arms about Mr. Cathy, the owner of Chick-Fil-A, answering an interview question about his beliefs. Because of this premonition Rep. West decided to insult members of the Black Caucus by buying them Chick-Fil-A for lunch? But if Rep. West is the only one who knew that this was going to be an insult because the event hadn’t happened yet, how was it an insult? Oh, wait, now that it has happened, the rest of the Black Caucus has caught on to his underhanded tactics of six months ago? Do I have this right? Rep. West is a prophet or something and can see things in the future and acts to create his insults before anyone knows they are insults? Wow. That’s a stretch even for a liberal.
