There are not called 'vanity plates' without reason. Regardless of the nature of the message theyRead More are used to convey, Americans and several other nationalities, including -- somewhat surprisingly -- Scandinavians, are permitted to sport personalized license plates. Is this really necessary at all? Aren't bumper stickers sufficient to express everything from vanity to insanity?

The worst part is, now, for the second time in how many years, the tax payers are going to wasteRead More money defending against this lawsuit (some guy wanted athe1st or something a while back) Fire the nit-witts who are doing these veto's so that we can save their salaries and the legal costs and put it towards our sadly lacking educational system. I'll bet this employee only had half day public kindergarten and no public preschool. (ok, off topic rant, but c'mon!!!)

Well" just remember. There aren't any Athiests in a fox hole! Anyone who has been in combat canRead More tell you that. These Athiest's fail to understand that God is real. They are taught this nonsense in the ultra liberal left wing nut job Universities. We actually pay these people to teach this stuff. The next time you need an Exorcist done, who are you going to call?? Oh and remember, a liberalism is a mental disorder. Check out Michael Savage's book. You may learn something.

Jackie Ray..........No one gives a shit if it does anything for her. And NO! It absolutely does NOTRead More mean that there is any lack of humanity as much as her. Do you know WHY? Because none of us are cold blooded killers! If it does anything at all to make the family of the victim feel better then GOOD! THEY have suffered a terrible loss. WHY should she have to listen to them "whine and cry about how terrible she is"? Are you freakin' serious? SHE is the reason they have suffered that loss and as such, she has lost the reason to even live as far as most of us are concerned. She made the choice to do something that she had no right to do. For that, she deserves to lose HER rights, and so she has. She can rot in hell as far as I'm concerned. If it were your loved one that she murdered I'm sure you'd have a different feeling about this.

She is a member of a culture that simply has no regard for human life. She won't work any harder inRead More prison than she did in her everyday life. And just like it was in her everyday life, the government will provide her with everything she needs...except freedom. And we are the beneficiaries of that...keep her off our streets and out of our lives is a blessing.

I think I will go back to using checks at stores and cash at gas stations. I found a gas station inRead More Eagle Rock that gives a discount for using cash and generally buy my gas there. Not as convenient as using a debit card but I had to cancel my card after using it at Target right before Christmas. What a hassle.
cookiepro2 April 19, 2014 at 06:28 pm
I've started using cash more in the past year for grocery and gas. It's simplified bill paying,Read More reducing the number of credit card receipts that need to be reconciled with statements! Though I still like the 5% discount from using my Target card and the cash back bonus from Discover. Anyway gotta have a good reason now for using my credit cards, either buying online (necessity then) or some reward incentive.

This is a corrupt county. The commissioners did not do their job in checking the executive andRead More those running for office are politicians waiting to get in control of the purse strings.

Obama, Sharpton and Jackson are well-documented race-baters. They carefully choose to weigh in withRead More charges of racism when it fits their agenda. Obama with Trayvon Martin and Henry Louis Gates. Sharpton with Tawana Brawley and Jesse Jackson making a living from extorting money from large corporations for his own personal gain are all great examples. So, with these Black leaders serving as examples to our Black youth, what other result would you expect? The facts are indisputable...sad but true.

I understand that with success comes notoriety. So while I am a not surprised by the level ofRead More interest you all have in that family, I am surprised that it is not just left at that. I am surprised that people from this area would resort to posting elementary school comments. I thought we were a little more refined than that. So many comments about the father, his family or employees and not one comment about if the kid is ok? If the father specifically did something to you and you want to come out and share your experience of why you think he’s this or that, then go ahead. But to sit here and ambiguously post comments about things you heard, that have no real impact on you, makes you look childish or jealous

Good question Sue, why aren’t there any women on the list? Reading between the lines of yourRead More comment you are inferencing that the business world as not being fair to women.
