Another Jodi Arias, but way too big. This judge was right, but she should have had Judge Judy toRead More blast her, she'd made her squirm. Even if they had the electric chair in Michigan that big thing wouldn't fit in it, they'd have to put her on a high voltage queen sized mattress.

I own a small business in Woodridge IL. The amount of credit card fraud has here has increased tenRead More fold over last year. I have to tell you that the card owner doesn't get burned, the card issuer don't either, nor does the company you hire to process and approve the cards. It's the local merchant where the card was used. Online ordering is the worst. The big banks say you didn't swipe a card, so you're liable, even though it was approved by that same bank at the time of purchase. If this keeps up, I'll have to go backwards in time and shut down online ordering. So much for a cashless society.

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.

Jay Charles April 18, 2014 at 02:28 pm
Actually, Joe, Jesse Jackson did publicly condemn the incident. But, almost two weeks after itRead More happened. I presume he had to make sure which way the media was leaning before speaking out.
Racer Boy April 18, 2014 at 06:00 pm
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.

The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment.

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. Here’s a hint, the people listed did not sit around waiting for someone else to lift them up. They pulled themselves up by their own boot straps.

HF the charges were dropped. There is a problem because and I quote from the Patch"Lewis saysRead More he never noticed "No Free Re-Fill" signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions" and "On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free."Where did you read that he knew he had to pay for it? No where in the article does he said he knew it.

Dale: you are being ridiculous as usual. Neither I nor John David said anything negative about yourRead More coworkers or GM. We were talking about you, you alone. You attacked another poster for not being as charitable as you, because you were involved in an employer sponsored event. This was an uncivil, baseless, self aggrandizating bit of obnoxiousness. You puff yourself up while ripping others down, without reason or any basis. Drop the attacks of other people and I will have nothing to criticize.

Sorry I have such a short memory, Matt. You’ve said this specifically a few times before.Read More “We were talking about you, you alone.” I can’t challenge someone’s thinking if you happen to disagree with it. Like many of your other criticisms of me, it’s purely personal. Have a nice weekend.

Julie Lattimore April 18, 2014 at 05:19 pm
Let me clarify again... I wrote "many in the race" I did NOT write "most" orRead More "all" in the race. I did not group all black people together, I would never do that. There are "many" in my own race that are despicable human beings too. I am sorry if any of you read my comment and thought I was lumping you all together. Believe me, I know there are a lot of white people in those gangs too. My point was that this young boy should have never been allowed to roam those streets unsupervised, where the gangs hang out. That is exactly how they get involved with or victimized by gangs. It could have easily been that child beaten to near-death, look how close he was and his parents weren't even aware. Nobody is safe in that neighborhood, especially if they carry a purse, are talking on a iphone, listening to a ipod, using a cane, wearing expensive jewelry or looking defenseless. It's a cultural problem, it has absolutely nothing to do with skin color, it has everything to do with parents who don't watch or discipline their own kids, that includes the parents of this boy. That is why children end up in gangs, lack of supervision. It is abusive if you leave any young child to fend for themselves, but it is highly abusive if you leave them unsupervised in these dangerous areas where the known gang activity is high.
