Perhaps if our great minds put a little more effort into our drug and alcohol abuse problems, instead of worrying about red meat, sugary drinks and tobacco, we might have less of these horror stories.2 months ago
Thank God they had a dog instead of a baby.2 months ago
His defense attorney declined to offer an explanation for his actions; but, I suspect that it may have something to do with the current 'climate' in Philadelphia. I used to love that city.. the history, the food, the people but, boy has it changed. The Liberty Bell, now encased in a hideous glass structure with armed guards (whose only response to any question is "Move on!" ) and security paraphernalia, used to just sit, open, in the park. The historical district is occupied by the rudest, meanest collection of 'humans' that I have encountered in various places on this planet. Those rudimentary expressions, of civilization, like 'please,' thank you,' excuse me.." have disappeared. In fact, in comparison, the occupants of that city have dropped, at least, three rungs on the ladder of evolution. After spending a day, or an hour, in that hellish place, it's a wonder that the defendant didn't threaten much worse. 2 months ago
Oh, gooly-gee; the prosecutor is a big meanie and everyone 'feels sorry,' for poor, wittle Arias. And this is all, nothing more, than a public ploy to separate this trial from the plain fact that she slaughtered Mr.Hamilton. Ms. Arias trumps Martinez on 'meanie.'2 months ago
I've been watching the jaw dropping antics of this administration for the past 3.75 years and, you know, I am almost at the point of saying"what the h..." Obviously there is no more "will of the people;' now it is the minority who rules..and he or she who screams the longest and loudest wins.
Maybe we should just throw in the towel and stop spitting in the wind. Let Mexico take Arizona and watch the hoards, like Sherman's march South, then, march north and east and west. Post a "Y'all Come" sign at the border! Chastise the Florida resident who said, "My Daddy was a staunch Republican until the day he died. Now he votes Democrat."
Now, I know I may not be the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree but why, exactly, is profiling such a grave and unforgivable sin? I mean, if a little old lady in a knitted pink ski mask robs a bank why can't you question little old ladies in pink ski masks?
Now before anyone says that I just don't understand prejudice, let me tell you.. growing up, as a member of an ethnic group so hated in our region that we, regularly had rocks tossed through our windows, kids attacked and beaten to a pulp, where going to a restaurant wasn't an option because they simply would not wait on us. And when I bitched and moaned to my grandmother, know what she said.."Some of the blame must be placed on the people in our own community who do the terrible things that make everyone fear and hate all of us!"
I'm ranting and raving again but I have been witnessing things happening within our government that I never, ever dreamed would be possible! People, literally, getting away with bloody murder and others cheering them on! So, maybe, it is time to just give up. Let 'them' have their way and when this country is reduced to rabble and dust... maybe it might be salvageable. Maybe.10 months ago
