    I’m unemployed and I don’t understand this attitude. As long as I have a nice amount of savings, I don’t see a reason to get food stamps. In AZ, unemployment is not much no matter what your paycheck was. It maxes out at $250 each week. I am struggling with how to approach starting my own business – with zero support or help from anyone. I have a few options on type of business. …and not looking for any loans. Yes, money would help with leasing space and all that. I can also make money driving to people’s homes.

    I’m not asking for help here. I’m simply illustrating my attitude. Plus, I usually forget where I left comments and rarely return to check for replies anyway. A few exceptions.

    If you think this is a waste of time, why bother reading the article? No one is forcing you to read this. I see people gripe over and over and usually the headline should have warned you.

    I like being informed about the world, but I get burned out with continuous 24/7 coverage – often the same info getting repeated over and over for a few days. It’s nice to get a break from that crap occasionally. It’s not healthy to be continuously angry and stressed about world events. One non-political article that took 5 minutes to read isn’t going to keep me from reading another article about Progressive idiots a few minutes later. The same goes for stepping outside without technology for 30 minutes to an hour and admiring the scenery. Those articles will still be there waiting for you to scream at.

    Yeah… I wonder what size safety deposit box will hold 45 guns – which included rifles.

    OR

    “Hi, I’d like to deposit my Magnum and a few hunting rifles plus my kid’s BB gun into my savings account.” …while the teller hits the silent alarm suspecting a robbery.

    There’s no breakdown of what the items are worth. How much of that $200,000 is the guns and how much is the money and jewelry? Regardless, not everyone trusts banks. Bank accounts can be hacked and drained too.

    Wow! So that’s what she’s been up to. I went to high school with her. I was one year ahead of her. No, we weren’t friends. Aware of each other.

    Wow! I know where that is. I used to do service calls there. It is a small town near Globe, AZ. It’s not a city. This is not a full size, Super Center Walmart either. It’s one of the smaller stores – less than 20 checkout lanes if I remember correctly. …last time I was there, just a couple of years ago. Still drove past it since then.

    They had out of state plates so can’t really predict race on that. I’ve only been to Idaho once for a business trip – mainly driving through small towns c2000.

    Someone mentioned Florida. There is a Miami, AZ in that area.

    Seriously! For the past two days, it seems like people are commenting without reading the article. Just look at the pretty photos and ignore the words. …or there’s a knee-jerk reaction, assuming the worst of someone like a politician with no history of screwing us.

    I’m starting to regret reading comments again. (I ripped into everyone here about a year ago or so.)

    This article has nothing to do with a kid at a party. This is about a woman arrested twice on the same charge. She already paid a fine. A clerical error resulted in a warrant being generated.

  • March 20, 2015 at 2:51pm

    Did you even read the article? She had been arrested in December, stood in front of a judge, and paid a fine. The paperwork was misfiled. She was arrested a second time for the SAME charge she already paid a fine for. This second arrest from this month should never have happened. Double jeopardy. The court has already written an apology.

    I’m also tired of the tabliod-style headlines. I wish the headline summarized the article like normal newspapers used to. Although it has improved some, there does need more work on proofreading too. You can’t be totally dependent on spell checkers or grammar checkers. To, two, too, there, their and “they’re” are all spelled correctly but may not be correct for the sentence. Same for presence and presents. Plus, grammar checkers sometimes don’t understand that I’m doing a list or something non-standard. You need a second person to read it at least. Someone who hasn’t written the article so it’s read with a fresh set of eyes.

    I don’t think that word means what you think it means. You want to bring back passageways to theater seats? That’s what vomitoria are. Someone misused the term in the 1920s, and it lead to others using it that way. The Romans did not have a room to vomit in. It’s more like people were vomited to and from their seats.

    Did you even read the stories? This article is about Karen Moran. Your link is about a woman named Angela Janke.

    Karen was originally arrested in December and paid a fine. The paperwork was not handled properly and a warrant was issued. Her arrest this month was because of the warrant. Karen was arrested twice for the same charges from December.

    Mayor Stothert is refusing to apologize for an arrest related to minors in possession from this month. No arrest warrant involved. Unrelated incidents.

    It helps to get your facts straight before trying to debate. Even the nice picture above has “clerical error” at the bottom of the screen capture.

    The article spelled out why. She paid a fine. The paperwork was not processed properly. The courthouse gave her an apology. This resulted in double jeopardy. She was arrested twice for the same offense – not a new set of charges. She had already been in front of a judge and verdict was given. She paid her fine. The arrest was for the same charge a judge had already decided on.

    I don’t understand the attention this is getting. (Already made a comment and added a reply.)

    Ferrell making a comment about one moment during the SNL 40th anniversary has turned into something ridiculous. It’s one freaking moment, not the whole show. One minute observation. We’ve become as bad as them here.

    This one observation, one moment has turned into “Hey! Let’s just see who can insult Ferrell the most.” If we’re going to make this much effort, make it on something worthwhile. Jim Carrey and his comment on gun control was worth it. Almost anything from MSNBC seems to be a good target. No one was attacked politically here. No outlandish Progressive sentiment was expressed here. To me, if this bothers you, you’re looking for something to object to. No different from someone looking for a racist comment. They’ll see it because their looking for it.

    I don’t feel this article is worth being posted, and Ferrell doesn’t deserve the attention he’s getting. It’s a non-event. He simply said O’Reilly looked bored for the one moment he looked at him. So what? I didn’t see the show. In the clip provided, this is a nothing moment. O’Reilly wasn’t insulted. He wasn’t called an idiot. They didn’t criticize something he said. There wasn’t a rare moment of agreement with O’Reilly either. The audience didn’t boo when his name was mentioned. The clip is nothing more than “During the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary I caught a glimpse of Bill O’Reilly and he looked bored.” Big deal

    I did finally watch it – only two minutes. I’m always seeing the Progressives insulting conservatives. I read this article and watched the video expecting insults. I saw some observations with a few jabs thrown in – based on what is presented. I don’t watch Letterman or any other late night shows now with Craig gone. I could see the same comments being made about me sometimes.
    Do we have such knee jerk reactions now that we assume every liberal is insulting us in every statement? Are we getting as bad as they are when it comes to assumptions? It seems skin is too thin on this particular incident. This was tame compared to what I normally see and tame compared to what I expected when I decided to read this.
    So what if Ferrell looked at O’Reilly one time during the SNL 40th anniversary and Bill is sitting there looking expressionless at that one moment. That’s it. Ferrell didn’t say it was for the entire show. Just one little moment. A minor roast.
    …and I’m still lost on why this is news. They didn’t call O’Reilly an idiot. Audience didn’t boo when his name was mentioned. There wasn’t an unexpected moment of agreement.
    If this is news, old comments about Beck’s fashion sense must have been thought of as just as bad. I see no difference except it was friends making the comments to Beck. He is dressing better now.

    I’m not sure if I get the point of this article. People mention other people many times. Sometimes they say something about Rush. Next time it might be O’Reilly or Beck. If the story isn’t more than what’s printed, it’s too vague to be interesting. The only shock is that there’s no insult. With what’s presented, I have no interest in watching the video.

    My first thought was AI. I never heard of the movie until this article, The Blaze provided free advertising for the one ad that didn’t crash my browser. However, good movies don’t require stunts like this. This informed me about the movie and killed my interest at the same time. Cheap trick. (…but like their music.)

    If it had been an established franchise, interaction with a character might be cool if handled right – Batman, Superman, Captain America, Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Han Solo. Perhaps not on Tinder, but some other service.

    Based on what I’ve observed, it’s the people who can’t answer those questions who are NOT patriotic. The ones who don’t know history or were taught incorrect facts seem to be the ones trashing America. The Patriots know at least some of that history or are willing to look things up. The non-patriots refuse to read history or look up facts. They just accept what they’re told. Non-patriots seem more interested in looking at Patriots and skipping the first 3 letters.

    I’m seriously getting annoyed with the comments here. Did everyone actually read the article???? Glenn said he supports LEGAL immigration. He actually says those words. It’s spelled out on the page. LEGAL. Not illegal. People too lazy to read I guess. Fed up with this group sometimes.

  • [1] March 16, 2015 at 5:20pm

    Programs mean more government. We are quite capable of helping each other without a government program. …Naturally, stories about that rarely get reported on. The government can’t manage its own ass. They make everything more complex than required and have no concept of real life costs of things. 2 billion dollars for a web site that does nothing but send data to insurance companies – supposed to send customer data to companies. Average corporation could have done it for a fraction of the cost and it would be working properly without the security problems. Most politicians have no corporate or business experience. They just make promises to get votes, and the promises are not planned out well. Welfare and anything paid for via taxes will eventually run out of money.

  • [-1] March 16, 2015 at 5:09pm

    He said legal immigration. Did you actually read the article?
