Jul 23rd 2011 6:14PM Greed. Greed. Greed. From the airlines, to corporate America, it's nothing but greed and it's supported by the Republican party. Is it any wonder this country is sliding down the slope to third-world status?
Jul 12th 2011 5:46PM If I was anywhere near this place, I'd go just to support this policy. Parents have to learn there are times and places for children to be and times and places where they shouldn't. I'm cringe in some restaurnats where children are permitted by their addle pated parents to run around spoiling everyone elses dining experience. One of these days there'll be an accident an a child will be injured. I hope I'm there to witnes it so I can testify in court against these ignorant fools-for-parents and get their kids placed in state custody for their own safety.
Jun 3rd 2011 12:36PM I would like to pose this question, not to be mean, nasty and cruel, but to get people to think. While this child has a terrible disease, just how far must we go to "mainstream" him? Right now schools are banning nut products and some have banned "brown bagging" in order to protect the health of the minority of students with food allergies. What are we to do in this case? "Mainstream" him and remove all food from the school so he doesn't get sick? That seems the direction things are going in these days with the growth of the "nanny state." But if they can ban surgar, dairy, nuts, wheat, etc. because one student might get sick when exposed, could this extreme action be far behind? What about the rights of the majority? Don't they have any at all anymore?
Apr 9th 2011 4:44PM Wonderful. Another program featuring that spectacularly unfunny and slightly disgusting "comic" Adam Corolla. As if his DWTS appearances weren't bad enough. Well, this is one more show I won't be watching any time soon.
Mar 25th 2011 8:00PM George Lopez is one to talk. This is a man who's made and entire caree playing the dumb, lazy Hispanic stereotype. He's an insult to all Hispanics and especially Mexicans. And just so you know, I'm a "WASP" male who's in favor of tighter boarders and stronger immigration laws, so if I find Lopez offensive, you know Hispanics must too.
Mar 2nd 2011 5:46PM At first I thought this was silly but then I remembered that as a child, in order to ride on the streets of my town, you had to have the local police check your bike for lights, reflectors, bell or horn, etc. If everything was in order, you were issued a numberd sticker to be placed on the seat post. There may have been a nominal fee but I don't recall that. It did have a huge effect on bike theft because bikes were now registered and could be traced. This is the first time I've heard of this on the state level though. Not really a bad idea after all.
Feb 22nd 2011 4:28PM I can see using the device as an "alarm clock" to get the kids to school on time, and I can see tracking them during regular class hours, but once the kids leave the school yard after normal hours it's invasion of privacy. 8 PM? Sorry, but schools been long out and they have no business tracking anyone once they're off school grounds.
Feb 19th 2011 6:28PM People ask me why I have absolutely no interest in sports, well here's the reason. Any sport that can rile its fans to poison trees, riot in the streets, allows its patrons to drink to a state of inebration, dress like bafoons, or other such nonsense I want no part of. Unfortunately, there isn't a team sport at the professional or college level that can claim that any of the above isn't true. And these are supposed to be "family friendly" sports to boot. HA! What a joke.
Feb 17th 2011 5:54PM To quote the chidren's story: "Mommy, the king's not wearing any cloths." It's high time someone called it out on these nut job designers. This isn't clothing design. Performance art perhaps with costumed performers, but it is NOT clothing design. If it is, then there's only one word to describe it, "GARBAGE."
Feb 13th 2011 12:30PM What a blowhard. And to use a Warner Bros. cartoon line, "What a maroon." Gotta give him and his ilk points for consistancy. Facts are just inconvenient things to be ignored, especially when it contadicts a good rant, and science is ALL theory and an opinion to be ignored, especially when it proves one of their religion based ideas wrong. (Galileo was wrong, not in his science, but because he contradicted the church.)
