This harridan should have been disbarred,and held for obstruction charges after the Vince FosterRead More affair. She had his office sealed.She broke the law.She did not have the authority to do that. She was a do nothing Senator,and an incompetent,criminally negligent Secretary of State.

Cops got a chance to play with their toys. Relax people. It's not like you had to respondRead More personally. Stop saying it's a waste of money. Then money is absolutely minimal. These guys were not called away from their golf games. I would also like to compliment the responders for not accidentally killing someone. It showed professionalism and did not add to the "trend" of killing "innocent" people; which is becoming an issues to watch. The people incensed over this should focus their anger on plastic shopping bags as many others are doing over at another great Patch piece. Evil lurks at the checkout counters across America!

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions.

Wouldn't the fairest admission to University be judged completely by scholastic ability ? ThatRead More would mean not accepting students because of sex, color, class, ethnicity, or prior connection to the school. The college population might become a little "lopsided," but wouldn't the result be more intelligent young people to go on to graduate school ? America, and the general public would benefit because in our midst would be the best scientists, doctors, instructors, etc. for us to call upon ? Our country would become stronger still, which seems to become more urgent with every passing day.

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.

Stating that the history books are anti US and pro global without any proof is very misleading. WhenRead More I was going to school we had classes about world history and separate classes about US history. So of course some textbooks about the history of the world might not mention the United States. It didn't exist yet.
Matt Miller April 23, 2014 at 12:05 pm
Comments like "back when I was in school" are completely laughable. I don't brag aboutRead More beating my kid in a foot race because I'm faster then he is. So why should me being able to solve a math problem faster then him mean that the new way doesn't work? I've been using math for decades and he'll be just beginning to learn it. Of course I'm going to know the answer before him. Also, what's wrong with setting higher standards for our kids? When I was in school my "reading and basic learning level" was always a grade or two above my actual grade level. It's easier for them to learn new things when they are younger then it is when they're older.

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!

Then, there is animal cruelty involved, another terrible crime, plus, harassment of all kinds, leudness, & who knows what else.

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!

Agranon - I'm a moron because I am tired of everybody and his mother trying to put themselves inRead More every story? Then so be it - I'm a moron. To be honest, I am also really tired of all the people that were compelled to run the Boston Marathon because "I had to finish for all those who couldn't." Get over yourself. It was a tragedy. Those responsible should be ripped apart by dogs. I sincerely hope the families of those affected can move on somehow. But how does Mary Jane Smith running the marathon help ANYBODY but herself? She's not doing it for "those who can't". She's doing it to maybe get on TV and she's probably feeling a little sanctimonious because she ran 26.2 miles and you didn't. It's like, "what did YOU do to help these people?" Same as you - nothing.

For those of you observantly too clueless, Citrus County is 95.05% white, votes Republican in local,Read More state and national elections. Presently, Republicans hold all seats on the Citrus County Commission. In addition, the per capita income for the county is listed at $18,585. Nearly 12 percent of the population lives below the poverty level and close to 9 percent of families below the poverty line. So, instead of trying to bash the president and what he stands for, how about taking the time to realize the error of your ways and correcting the lies you continue to spew and believe on a daily basis. You just might find out that you've been voting against your interest for all of the wrong reasons; bigotry being one of them.
TT April 23, 2014 at 06:42 am
BassGreat is what I call an O'bot, just like this child killer. Because an area has a lot ofRead More Republicans in it (not saying that what you said is true, I'm just throwing out a hypothetical), doesn't mean that it is completely void of murderous Liberal parasites. Since you're throwing out percentages, how about telling us what percentage of drive by shooters, car jackers, gang members, and mass shooters are Obama voters. Go ahead and say bashing the Left doesn't matter or pertain to this story. But because the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats, it becomes VERY significant. You devils are dangerous, and it's time to admit it.
BassGreat April 23, 2014 at 09:14 am
TT, you apparently like looking foolish (pretty typical?). And for someone who wants to come acrossRead More as knowledgeable, you fail miserably. Oh, and by the way, felons can't vote. But I will allow you to present evidence that the majority of violent criminals are Democrats. Your source? Heck, the very definition of a Democrat is an advocate or supporter of democracy. But alas, we're all Americans. Perhaps you should worry less about bashing one's political affiliation in an attempt to elevate yourself. You missed something pretty important here. "Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted." Now, it should be a bit easier for you to understand why President Obama won a second term. A fete none thought possible. And remember, never spew from your mouth that which you can't back up. makes you look rather small.
