Hooray for the KKK!!! About damn time we have someone besides the Black Pussies (I meant panthers)Read More and all the black hate groups to stand up...

Bill in all his wisdom typed out this comparison:Yet the Black Panthers setup shop during electionsRead More to intimidate white voters and nobody so much as blinks an eye. Philadelphia, "The city of brotherly love", as long as you vote for the brother. ===================================== Right, two idiots pranced in front of cameras of the press in a district that the election before had seventeen voters for John McCain. Wow, you just may be the “intelligence” the KKK is looking for. You live near York?

A pathway moving forward seems to be levering the opportunity to energize the community and get themRead More committed not just to voting for a change, but acting on it and being part of the process. This is that idea of asking people to "Be a Founder." Takes a little more time to do it this way, but should unite the community and result in a better outcome and a place that many more people will be happy with.

The inability of groups to get together is a real problem. I know from earlier comments that theRead More Briarcliff group had tried. I've also attended some Lakeside meetings, and know that they thought only God (possibly) was worthy of discussion with them. I feel bad that nothing happened. But at least it wasn't Lakeside.

"I've also attended some Lakeside meetings, and know that they thought only God (possibly) wasRead More worthy of discussion with them." What does this mean? You attended Lakeside meetings and they only wanted to discuss God? That doesn't sound quite right. Are you sure you didn't accidentally go to church?

"mngordo" -- Your precious Saint Trayvon was a anti-white racist homophobicRead More gangsta-wannabe, none of which the media chose to dwell on -- but those are the (un-PC) facts. Just because a night-watchman was following you does not give you the right to bash his head into the pavement. Your sympathy for this creep is highly misplaced, thanks to the media turning him into a martyr (or maybe your own anti-white racism).
Grumpy Old Man April 24, 2014 at 12:44 pm
Some of you posters should read the post of Jack Hess and learn something. You do not just keepRead More shooting to ensure someone is dead - this ain't a combat zone. Some of these comments just feed the anti gun anti second amendment crowd with grist for the mill. I'm not defending these two teens - but the actions of this guy from the reported facts went way beyond anything that can be justified. This isn't comparable to Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin (and the nonsense I've read in some of these posts about Zimmerman stalking him are just that nonsense) and this guy deserves to spend time in the state penitentiary.

Dave...You are flat out wrong in your contention that gun-carrying law abiding citizens "don'tRead More look for trouble...don't disobey the laws". Can you say Trayvon Martin? He was an unarmed young black male, minding his own business but was followed & tracked by a "gun-carrying law abiding citizen" who by his very actions of following Trayvon was the agressor...and shot & killed an innocent person. Your second point of being background checked and fingerprinted...big whoop-t-do! The problem is that gun-toting yahoos are predisposed to escalate the situation as opposed to letting the situation calm-down. Let the police who are trained in situation management carry lethal force.

Jason...this ain't the 1850's wild west, but what you and the idiotic Republican zeolots want areRead More guns everywhere, local militias reporting to local "leaders" and obliterating the rule of law. That's exactly what they have in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and every other country you hate.
Frank Jones April 24, 2014 at 12:45 pm
Tim...You can't see the forest for all of the trees. All Criminals were once Law-Abiding Citizens.Read More All Law-Abiding Citizens may become Criminals. Jails are full of "law-abiding citizens" who...shot their girlfriend, shot their husband, shot their neighbor, shot a stranger, shot and killed a store clerk during their first robbery, etc. The "guns everywhere" law is just another step in the insane arming of America whereby guns will be everywhere, people will "defend" themselves unreasonable and innocent men, women and children will be massacred. Imagine kid's sporting events where parents often get overheated. Now with guns everywhere, look for guns as basic equipment for Pop Warner football, Little League Baseball, etc. People...We need to dial it back, restrict guns to defense of home/office, and hunting. Let the police handle public protection.

Michael - the "progeny" vs. "prodigy" was an example that I was using for theRead More whole board here (or any other board). No, your post was fine and obviously I didn't misunderstand you. I was aiming that more at a lot of folks whom I truly can't understand. You just happened to be lucky enough to misuse a word and then accuse people of not comprehending what they're reading. As far as labelling me/us as woman-haters, again that was aimed at a few other people. And actually, if I am a troll, I just troll for the opportunity to rip on people for using sweeping generalities.

You cannot offer education to any person who has not had the foundation of paternal guidanceRead More beginning at birth. The maturation of the human entity revolves around initial care as an infant which means communication both oral and by tactile sensation. NURSING an infant is one of the MOST importatnt things that may be offered as a beginning point. Any amount of the process is good, but continuing for the better part of a year is best. TALKING to the infant is also paramount in awakening the receptiveness of the brain as the eyes develop and begin to truly see. Show and demonstrate any and all things. And continue through the pre-teen years. When ANY child is prepared in these ways he or she will be READY to begin secondary schooling and on into the college level and become a resposible, productive AMERICAN. Do as I did. Finish high school. Go to college & get a degree (I paid for myself). Be RESPONSIBLE for yourself. AND Be a GOOD PARENT.. PEPARE your child. THAT is YOUR JOB!!! And THANKS to my parents!!!
