SO, we cannot say GOD or the Pledge Of Allegiance in schools , or wear religious slogans on clothingRead More in schools, but the KKK's right to freedom of speech and hateful bigotry is NOT a hate crime and is allowed to uphold their own freedoms in society ???????? What am I missing here. ???????

KKK dwindling to less than10,000 members? Not just renaming themselves the Tea Party.

Attorney Hunt is lucky that his client wasn't charge with burglary but that what it seems like heRead More committed! This "peeking" charge is a bunch of BS; if he were some regular Joe, he'd most likely be charged with a felony.

Now that is something. Imagine how big this baby will be in a couple of years. He probably won'tRead More even fit through a regular door!

Sunny do you have any scientific information whatsoever to back up your asinine comment?

"Pat Kittle" Our history may be past, but it's easy to see it lives in you.

Boy, if you guys are like this now, what are you going to be acting like if she runs and wins theRead More presidency? Are your collective heads just going to pop?
B. Dub April 24, 2014 at 11:46 am
Honestly, Michael, yes. I really can't imagine what that will be like. I have a good friend who isRead More as liberal as they get (we don't discuss politics, which is why we still like each other). There is a tiny part of me that would like to see Hillary win just to prove to my friend how wrong she is about her. But the rational part of me is scared - really scared - of how many fewer rights we would have under a Hillary presidency combined with a Democratic Congress. I mean we've already lost enough in the last 8 years; we need to stop the bleeding.

this "to me" is not funny, the swat teams are used for serious issues, hostage taking,Read More etc. to have a swat team called to a home behind a video game is stupid, these swat members are trained to save lives, etc. to be called to a home behind a video game is not funny, what happens if a REAL call comes in and swat is needed there, I hope they catch the idiot that called swat and he gets what he/she deserves
John Strother April 24, 2014 at 05:38 am
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 05:52 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.
Anna Gomez April 23, 2014 at 09:56 am
Efren Carrillo is an alcoholic pig and is on way too many commitees with far too much power. ThisRead More was not his first offense - he beat a man unconscious outside of a bar in San Diego in 2012. I do not understand why he still has a job. He needs to go!
Melinda Moreaux April 23, 2014 at 11:02 am
IMHO "Peeking" is not a good word for what he's accused of.
Gregg L. DesElms April 23, 2014 at 07:28 am
I'm sorry, but why is the woman called "Jane Doe?" Why is she not identified. She is notRead More only the alleged victim of what is not a sex crime (and she is not a minor), but she is also the complainant to the point of being the arrester (she, after all, she wanted to make a citizen's arrest; and California is a citizen's arrest state). There is no justifiable reason why she is not identified; and shame on the media for not getting a higher-court judge to order the lower court judge to release the woman's name. Not releasing it is a failure to properly report the news. I'm sorry for the woman's discomfort, but that's not how we do things in the US. When someone sticks his/her toe into the court system, it's PUBLIC INFORMATION. Shame, again, on the media for just lying down and taking that particular of the Court's rulings.
Sandy Murphey April 24, 2014 at 11:09 am
I agree completely on this point. No one has explained why her name is being withheld.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions.

@Charles Taite - As one of the commentators responding to and to whom Black Panther of PoetryRead More responded I happen to agree with you. I don't know whether Patch removed him or whether he did so himself. I for one did not flag any of his comments as offensive regardless of my personal dislike of some of the comments he made. If Patch did so shame on Patch. P.S. As much as I have issues with what he wrote he is no where close to the KKK for bigotry or racist beliefs or talk but your point is well taken.
dwayne roberson April 24, 2014 at 11:17 am
Patch deleted my comments on an Earth Day article. All I did was recommend JunkScience.com.
Charles Taite April 24, 2014 at 11:45 am
TRUST ME!!! "The Black Panther of Poetry" did not do this himself. benicia patch didRead More it!! THIS IS NOT AMERICA!!!
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

Gary's post is full of falsehoods.
CowDung April 24, 2014 at 09:22 am
"Agreements or addenda" are not part of the Common Core. Again, if states are doing theirRead More own thing by adding stuff or agreeing to do something different, it isn't Common Core.
Millsey April 24, 2014 at 11:46 am
If it's on the internet it must be true? A small group of parents make up some "facts" andRead More post it on random news sites. So it must be true? I'm in favor of trusting the actual sources of the program over a blog that someone created because they are afraid of their kids getting a better education.

Netflix is hands down the best deal going, and it has been a bargain for YEARS. I guess theRead More nonsensical whiners who complain about a long-delayed, $2 a MONTH increase are worried it will cost them a (partial) SINGLE LATTE. Utterly ridiculous.

TO MICHAEL BRENNICK: Leftist, Democra... WHAT? You think Comcast is part of the so-calledRead More "liberal" media (which, by the way, doesn't even exist)? Are you freakin' KIDDIN' me? [shakes head in disbelief] Wow. The FOX NEWS CHANNEL should be held criminally liable for what it has done to your brain.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

Sorry, Autistic boy, but there are a multitude of crimes here. These so called 'friends' abused youRead More terribly ~ called 'bullying', & that alone cannot be tolerated. Then, there is animal cruelty involved, another terrible crime, plus, harassment of all kinds, leudness, & who knows what else. These 'friends' need to be charged & made aware of the seriousness of their deeds, punished accordingly & helped through proper mental councelling.

It is probly the parents that want to drop the charges, not the boy. They shouldn't. I don'tRead More know why they would want to drop the charges.
Peggy Prater Mcmillan April 24, 2014 at 08:01 am
Those boys need to be punished, if they are doing things like that, no telling what they will beRead More like when they are older.
