This ruling could mess with BHO's goal of expanding the class of people dependent on the GovernmentRead More for survival. The plan seems to have been to put into effect a law that would greatly raise rates. Which has been accomplished. Then provide government entitlements meant to offset the increased insurance rates.

In this day and age you have to be aware of your surroundings at all times in public and even inRead More bathrooms and changing rooms to protect yourself. I understand why this woman is so upset, I do. (I thought the State was immune from lawsuits.) All this does is drive up the cost oif insurance for state and municipal parks, when so many are working to preserve them, this kind of lawsuit deters more towns and states from acquiring and keeping parkland.

Well Clare where does this say the girl is a raving beauty? She might be and she might not be. ItRead More was pretty crude thing to say about this guy. How attractive would you be having a mugshot taken? Maybe the girl was lonely, maybe not. If you read my previous post. Don't know one way or another, but I don't think you can just go on her word alone. Do you remember Andrea Mears who beat the hell out of the guy flying a drone and then told the police he attacked her. If it was for the video everyone would have believed her. I said at the time that Andrea didn't do females any favors because from then on the female's story get harder to believe. BTW she said she left the home, there is only her word for that.
Clare July 25, 2014 at 12:51 pm
Hey, Igor. But you are taking his word alone aren't you? I still say, mug shot or not that is oneRead More ugly dude and I never said she was a raving beauty, did I? The fact that he came onto her and the fact she got the hell away from him shows me she was immature and afraid of him. If you want to come up with the one example of Andrea Mears, you go ahead. How about all the handymen who work in homes and rape and kill the women in the house. I can guarantee there are a hell of a lot more of them than Andrea Mears. This is just one example: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/12/12/handyman-admits-killing-mass-women/

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.
Suzanne jefferis July 24, 2014 at 01:12 pm
The article should read 'Fruit Sold Locally'... It is misleading to the unaware who read no fartherRead More to suggest that organic fruit is the problem. All fruit, organic or those sprayed with unsafe pesticides should be washed. If gene spliced with herbicides and toxic pathogens as with GMO fruit, it is no longer a product of nature.
PS July 24, 2014 at 02:24 pm
Let's be realistic, those who are "unaware" probably aren't the people buying organic inRead More the first place. Lay off Kara - she's the only reason the patch is any good!

cohort = ignorance on display. ever think that the gunsare actually being shipped TO PA, from theRead More redneck states? DOH !!! RULES are RULES, NO GUNS means NO GUNS !!!!
Thomas Paine July 25, 2014 at 01:26 pm
Joe Troll - you really do not know what you do not know which you prove time and time again. PA,Read More like CT, requires all handgun sales to run through a FFL with a background check, even between private parties. If a gun from outside of PA is going to be sold LEGALLY in PA, there has to be a BGC by either a FFL or LE. For an individual to "ship" a gun to an individual in PA directly, without a BGC would be a violation of the existing law, whether from a redneck state or CT. DOH! you really do not know anything about which you spew.

Giant Cheez-It crackers with salsa. OR remove one cookie from each of 2 Oreo double-stufs, feedRead More those to the dog, put the two remaining together to make one quadruple-stuf.
