    There are a few obvious ones here and on Twitter. I try to ignore them. Don’t feed the trolls.

    For those attacking the idea of bottled water, it’s still better than tap even if the source is municipal supply. Make some ice and compare.

    For me, ice from tap water is white and cloudy.
    With a Brita pitcher, it’s still white ice cubes.
    With store brand bottled water, the ice is clear except for the usual crystals that form.
    Water from those water dispensers where you provide your own bottle (5 gallons for $1), I get clear ice from that water too. …at least with the Glacier brand machines near me. I haven’t tried others yet.

    I can’t speak for invisible chemicals that may still be present, but I can see a difference in the water. With the Glacier machines, it should be the same source as my tap water, but it doesn’t have the same funky taste my tap water has. I gag on my tap water. Some crap has been filtered out.

    I haven’t seen any formal tests on these machines or bottled water as far as chemicals that might still be present.

    …and a RINO’s word is 0%.

    Why can’t this happen with the serial killer?

    Actually, I know why. On another article, someone commented on the illegals in the area, but even without them, to me, it seems more liberals live in that part of town. Even in my part of town (east side, near Tempe/Mesa), I see some Obama and Bernie bumper stickers plus one pickup with a large sticker that says something like “Next time you need help, don’t call the police. Call Al Sharpton 1-800-DUMBASS” – the only sign of a conservative in my neighborhood.

    The area where the shootings are taking place probably don’t have many legal gun owners. They think they spotted him closer to my neighborhood – less than 10 miles from me. So far, no shootings outside his usual part of town.

    She shouldn’t but they do have to confirm it was self-defense. She hasn’t been charged. It’s just routine. Police still have to interview witnesses, watch any security video and whatever other evidence they might normally use to make sure things happened as she described. Unfortunately, some people lie and police just have to verify her story is legit.

    I also seem to recall local news reporting that he’s been sticking to the same area as if he lives in the neighborhood or not too far away from where shootings took place. Not sure if that detail changed since I last heard it.

    They’re working for me.

  • [5] July 24, 2016 at 11:59am

    Right… That’s why I see so many people struggling to get a job and I only spent a year and a half unemployed and 6 months underemployed. After 2 years, I finally got a good paying contract job but I’m not guaranteed 40 hours each week. (This coming week, I’m working one day.) Fortunately, I can use a ride-share company (not Uber or Lyft) to earn some money on days I’m not scheduled.

    What does salt have to do with something shot out of a gun?

    Now the sentence is back. The comments are buggy. I’m tired of the code on this site regardless.

  • April 19, 2016 at 12:44pm

    These are reasons I stop using web sites. Blanket censorship regardless of usage. I mention legit, everyday UK usage of words, and the hints for what those words are get REMOVED. The entire sentence is gone, not just asterisks.

    I’m done with TheBlaze web site. Since I often lose track of where my comments are, I probably wouldn’t see any replies to this anyway.

  • [1] April 19, 2016 at 12:38pm

    …and the coding for comments is acting up. I clicked on Save and it didn’t seem to save – countdown continued. Then click again – while countdown and Cancel and Save are still showing and it claims the post is the same as what’s already posted even though I had added the last sentence.

    Now my last sentence is missing from the previous post where I explained what I typed. I give up!

    Plus the code seems slow on my PC. It doesn’t always keep up with my typing speed. It could also be all the other plugins on the page slowing me down too. Not sure why AdBlock is turned off. I think it killed the Comment code here at one point. All of the Reply buttons disappeared one day. That was over a year ago I think. Not going to test it right now.

  • [1] April 19, 2016 at 12:28pm

    Guess which words were completely censored in my post. I added the letters so you could know what word I’m using. I guess we won’t be discussing differences between US and UK English here.

    …and the letters were removed during my third edit when I saw the line spacing was messed up. The “***” is what was on the cake. The “******” adds -got.

    Any chance the cake tampered with before it got to the customer? …a different employee acting immature and adding something when no one was looking.

    How old is he? This is one of the tamer words that could have been used and sounds like he needs a safe space. Missou student?

    He better avoid British shows. In the UK, f** means cigarette. A f**got is a bundle of wood – as used in the book Fellowship of the Ring. I’ve seen the cigarette reference in multiple TV shows. While reading Lord of the Rings, I remember looking that word up after seeing a comment about throwing a f**got on the fire. I think it was Aragorn who did it.

    I’m seeing alot of assumptions here in the comments.

    My dad’s family is Lebanese, some speak Arabic, and they are a mix of Eastern Orthodox and Presbyterian. (Half of the family is one while other half is the other.) No Muslims in the family. …many of them are liberals. During the 30s and 40s and possibly even today, most people in their small town think they are Jewish even though many of the older generations hate Jews. I know my paternal grandmother hated Muslims for decades – going back to the 40s or so.

    The only Arabic I know are swear words and possibly a dialect (not proper, mainstream Arabic). Turning someone in for simply speaking Arabic isn’t good enough. Was there something about his behavior? I was adopted and have blonde hair and blue eyes (and not always view the same as a blood relative by some family members). If I just sat there rattling off my Arabic swear words, should I be questioned if no one understands what I’m saying?

    With the recruiting that ISIS has done and the teens who joined in recent years, people posing a threat could be speaking any language.

    @Windchyme-

    I have one of those $20 phones. I was unemployed for 17 months and needed an Android phone for a job – Independent contractor, no benefits but still income.

    Yes, the memory is limited and I sometimes have to uninstall apps to make room. It is not as slow as you imply. It works decently for what I need. I do plan to upgrade when budget allows, but the phone works and I love having no contract. StraightTalk service works well where I live.

    You sound kinda spoiled or picky. When on a tight budget, I’ve learned to appreciate things more. This phone gave me some income. Money is still tight and I barely make enough but it’s still income.

  • [1] April 1, 2016 at 12:09am

    That’s right… This will bankrupt the state. Didn’t they learn anything from Seattle? …then again, more unemployment, more people dependent on government assistance. Those ends that they’re trying to meet will get further apart. Some may lose any welfare assistance they were getting because now they’ll make too much to qualify.

    Too many people are short sighted and don’t think about long term consequences.

    My dad’s family kissed mouth to mouth or on the cheek regardless of gender. Cheek was more common. Mouth to mouth was usually immediate family only (parents and kids). They are Lebanese and my grandfather and his siblings were first generation born in America. My great-grandparents landed at Ellis Island.

    I also grew up in north Texas so I also grew up with the hugs for hello and goodbyes.

    I fully realize not everyone is comfortable with these acts.

    …and they’re as effective as Boris and Natasha.

    (My first thought was Fearless Leader. I know you said Dear Leader.)

    Texas doesn’t have state tax either – not personal tax anyway.
