don't put a fire fighters life at risk because you want to be stubborn and stupid.

Saber Walsh: So you genuinely and honestly believe that white racism is an historical relic? Really?Read More You are obviously not a person of color -- or intelligence.
Portent April 24, 2014 at 11:38 pm
If you think that there is a moral equivalence between the KKK and Al Sharpton, you most likely aRead More simple and unequivocal a white racist. White racism and privilege has always been de facto affirmative action for white people.

Thank you Alison I was thinking the same thing....

It`s just Baby fat, I had an UNCLE years ago 15 lbs and he was born at home, turned out to be aRead More regular kid.

Actually this is usually a sign of gestational diabetes. But not always....Alison and Erin. AndRead More BIGBAKER I've heard of bigger babies being born at home years ago too but that gets into the whole accuracy of the way they were weighed. My daughter weighed 9lb 1oz. I'm average size. My birth weight was around 7 pounds. My husband was a premie and weighed about 5 pounds. But he was a big man. Not huge. He was 6ft 1in and weighed about 190 at his heaviest. I'm 5' 3" and weighed 165 at full term. Sometimes the size of the baby is determined by ancestors long dead! My son weighed 7lb 12oz and he was born 4 weeks premature! Imagine where he was headed! So don't go blaming things that may have NOTHING to do with it!

" Prosecutors contend he planned to murder the two teens and waited in the basement with aRead More bottle of water, a book, energy bars and two guns" How did he know that these kids were going to show up? Did he invite them just to kill them? If that's the case, it was premeditated. He shot one of them in the face after he was down and said he wanted them dead. I'd call that guilty of murder. His attorney is calling it stress.

This was justified. He should not have been charged with anything. Free this man.

@WC - you are correct CORBET did nothing and he was elected governor, he sat on the board of PennRead More State whose Executives did nothing and the assistant coach who WITNESSED it did very little. How about when you see someone raped you call the police immediately!!!!!!! How good was his story to his superiors. People believe what they want to believe without looking for the truth and are ready to condemn. Mob mentality.

Whether you like the idea of a statue or not, it doesn't matter. It is on private property and beingRead More funded privately. Though government is eroding private property rights and right to free speech in the US, at least for now, they can still put up the statue.

I don't disagree with you that we're becoming less and less a free country but it's wrong to blameRead More democrats alone. It wasn't dems alone that passed the patriot act. It hasn't been dems alone that have been re-uping it since it was passed the first time. On how bad Hillary will be as a president. Every president is bad in some ways. Reagan raised taxes more than a dozen times. Bush took us to war on two fronts with no way to pay for it. Clinton signed DOMA and DADT. Obama gave away the farm in order to get the Affordable Care Act passed. Papa Bush said that atheists shouldn't be considered Americans. Sure Hillary will be a bad president in some ways.... they are all bad in some way. I can tell you this much though, any president is going to be a worse president when the publicly stated goal of the opposition is to obstruct that president at any and all opportunities. The dems did it to Bush. The republican'ts are doing it to Obama. It's like Palestine and Israel, they'll fight to the death out of spite and habit, neither one of them knowing which one threw the first punch and not caring because winning is the only goal. What America needs are citizens that go into government for the good of the country instead of the good of their party.
Michael Hipp April 24, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Oh, one last point on your last post B. Dub. "Hillary presidency combined with a DemocraticRead More Congress." Ain't gonna happen. Republicant's have gerrymandered the states to absolute death. They have the House for the foreseeable future and they have a good chance at getting the Senate. I can't guarantee you who's going to win in 2016 but I can very well guarantee you that no one party will take executive and legislative branches, both.

with caller ID they should be able to point to the caller. Sorry but an out of state telephoneRead More number should be a tip off.
Eddie April 24, 2014 at 08:52 am
The caller used Skype, via the Internet, and will probably never be found if he took certainRead More precautions unless he's running his mouth about this prank.
Bob West April 24, 2014 at 06:20 pm
@ eddie, I wouldn't mention any specific phone-calling service in case any other arseholes areRead More looking for tips. But for better or worse, those calls are traceable. They have "add-ons" that can fool your friends, but certainly not the NSA. BTW, that phone service was bought by Microsoft a couple of years ago- so much for any illusion of confidentiality. By using it, you "opt in" to give up your privacy, just like with G-mail. Using a computer to make a prank call is a dumb move in itself. Any computer transmits a wealth of information. Non-smart phones are a lot less traceable than anything else. Have you ever seen how many items advertisers and other web sites use to uniquely identify your computer? They can't tell your name but track your unique computer. It's called "computer fingerprinting." As soon as you give your name at a web site they track, they've got you. Check this site sometime to see how unique your computer is-- https://panopticlick.eff.org/ .... I suspect that nobody's putting much effort into tracing this call, because in the big scheme of things, they've got more serious things to deal with. (Unfortunately, unlike our local PDs.) Shame this idiot got so much publicity from his crime. I think the glorifying news "perp walk" should be stopped in virtually all cases.
